巨大喉頭蓋嚢胞を有する患者の麻酔経験 [in Japanese] Anesthetic Management for a Patient with a Large Epiglottic Cyst. [in Japanese]
Access this Article
A 67-year-old male was diagnosed as having a large epiglottic cyst. Computed tomography of the neck demonstrated that the cyst, on the lingual surface of the epiglottis, was about 30 mm in diameter. He was therefore scheduled to undergo surgery for removal of the cyst. Before anesthesia, we anticipated that adequate visualization of the larynx and tracheal intubation would be impossible, so nasal intubation was performed with a fiberoptic bronchoscope under local anesthesia. A size 7.5 cuffed tracheal tube was inserted into the trachea on the first attempt without difficulty. Intubation using fiberoptic bronchoscopy proved to be a very useful method for a patient with a large epiglottic cyst.
