A previously healthy 1-year-old child with a traumatic acute subdural hemorrhage received 10 times higher dose of hypertonic saline inadvertently immediately before surgery. This case report describes deviations in fluid management needed to alleviate salt toxicity and its adverse effects during surgery under anesthesia perioperatively. The child made an uneventful recovery with no evident residual damage at follow-up.

Septo-optic dysplasia (SOD)/de Morsier's syndrome is characterized by optic nerve hypoplasia, pituitary endocrine dysfunction, and midline brain abnormalities. Hypopituitarism, hypothyroidism, hypogonadism, and adrenal insufficiency can lead to severe hypoglycemia, adrenal crisis, seizures, and sudden death. Anesthetic management of SOD was associated with high perioperative mortality. A 9-year-old male child proposed for dental treatments/extractions. Medical history of SOD with hypopituitarism, hypothyroidism, and delayed psychomotor development was observed...

Subglottic stenosis is a known complication of a traumatic and prolonged intubation. In a child, subglottic area is narrower and more prone to damage by an oversized or overinflated endotracheal tube. The stenosis can present with complaints of change in voice, croup, or respiratory obstruction. Those presenting with respiratory obstruction require immediate diagnosis under direct laryngoscopy and timely corrective intervention under general anesthesia. A 4-year-old child came to the emergency department with severe respiratory obstruction...

BACKGROUND: Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is a minimally invasive technique of tumor destruction for patients with hepatic cancer who are not candidates for conventional therapy. The therapy required general anesthesia (GA) or sedation to ensure patient safety and comfort. The study is aimed to report and evaluate factors that influenced the periprocedural anesthetic management, drugs used, and complications during and immediately after RFA procedure for hepatocellular carcinoma. METHODS: For this retrospective study, we included 46 patients who underwent percutaneous RFA under GA or conscious sedation from January 2010 to June 2013 in Aga Khan University Hospital, Pakistan...

Voluntary medical male circumcision (VMMC) reduces risk of HIV acquisition in heterosexual men by approximately 60%. As some countries approach targets for proportions of adolescents and adults circumcised, some are considering early infant male circumcision (EIMC) as a means to achieve sustainability of VMMC for long term reduction of HIV incidence. Evaluations of specialized devices for EIMC are important to provide programs with information required to make informed decisions about how to design safe, effective EIMC programs...

RATIONALE: Intercondylar fracture of the distal humerus is an extremely rare injury in children, especially in those under 8 years of age. To our best knowledge, there have been 55 reported cases of this fracture type in children in the English literature, 12 of which involved children under 8 years of age. PATIENT CONCERNS: We report a case of intercondylar fracture of the distal humerus in a7-year-old boy fell in a gymnasium, injuring his left elbow. INTERVENTIONS: Closed reduction was initially attempted under fluoroscopic guidance, but anatomic reduction could not be achieved because the fragments were extremely unstable and irreducible...

RATIONALE: Distal humeral diaphyseal fractures are much less common than supracondylar humeral fractures. The triangular shape and thinner periosteum in the diaphyseal region than in the supracondylar region of the distal diaphysis makes the treatment of diaphyseal fractures difficult. Nonoperative treatment for this fracture is challenging and troublesome; thus, open reduction and internal fixation (OR/IF) is generally recommended. PATIENT CONCERNS: We herein report a distal humeral diaphyseal fracture in a child...

Jeune syndrome is a rare autosomal-recessive skeletal disorder. Anesthetic management of these patients is often difficult because of thoracic and lung hypoplasia. A 5-month-old boy with Jeune syndrome was scheduled to undergo a tracheotomy. Despite 5-minute preoxygenation with continuous positive airway pressure, the patient's oxygen saturation rapidly dropped during the induction of anesthesia. The continuous positive airway pressure should have been titrated to effective tidal volume during preoxygenation to recruit the patient's functional residual capacity and to prevent desaturation...

Bullosis diabeticorum (BD), or diabetic bulla, is 1 of the cutaneous manifestations of diabetes mellitus, reported in 0.5% of people with diabeties in the United States, mostly in adult men who have had long-lasting and uncontrolled diabetes associated with diabetic peripheral neuropathy. However, BD in young children is a mostly unrecognized entity. We present a case of BD in a 3-year-old girl with type 1 diabetes mellitus who had been treated with insulin for 7 months prior to hospitalization. Dermatologic examination revealed a large, tense bulla filled with clear fluid and not associated with pain or pruritus, localized on the lateral margin of the right hand...

BACKGROUND: Pediatric intraoperative emergencies are rare but it is crucial for an anesthesia resident to be proficient in their management. Even the more common emergencies like anaphylaxis may not happen frequently for this proficiency to occur. Simulation increases exposure to these rare events in a safe learning environment to improve skills and build confidence while standardizing curriculum. OBJECTIVE: Anesthesia residents participated in a simulated case of intraoperative pediatric anaphylaxis to evaluate knowledge and performance gaps...

REVIEW
Dong-Hee Lee
The use of general (face-mask inhalation and intravenous) anesthesia has been the method of choice for tympanostomy tube insertion in children. However, there is no exact guideline for the choice of anesthesia method and there is no evidence to support the use of one anesthesia method over another. Clinically, the anesthesia method used to be decided by old customs and the surgeon's blind faith that children cannot bear tympanostomy tube insertion under local anesthesia. Clinicians should keep in mind that pediatric anesthesia has a potential risk...

We present the case of a 7-year-old boy with a forehead laceration that required suture repair. The child was anxious and uncooperative, and the initial plan was to administer intranasal midazolam to facilitate the repair. However, a facemask blinder was first implemented as a visual barrier to block the child's view of any anxiety-provoking stimuli and appeared to improve the child's cooperation with the procedure. Intranasal midazolam was not administered, and the laceration was cleaned and repaired successfully...
