Posterior glottic stenosis (PGS) is a rare but life-threatening condition mostly caused by damage to the interarytenoid mucosa by an endotracheal tube. In surgical treatment of PGS, airway patency is prioritized, and the laryngeal functions involved in swallowing and phonation are considerably sacrificed. In the majority of cases, lateralization of a vocal fold or partial excision of a vocal fold and arytenoid cartilage results in glottal closure insufficiency and deterioration of phonatory function. We present the first report of transcricothyroid endoscopic subglottic surgery to treat a 46-year-old man with PGS who was intubated for 10 days...

The widespread dissemination of direct cholangioscopy (DC) has been hindered by the need for special equipment and the perceived high procedure-related technical complexity. DC with freehand intubation has been reported to have high technical success rates in a single report, albeit the pervasive expert opinion question its clinical applicability, thus most centers resort to anchoring techniques for intubation and/or scope advancement.[1] However, although newer anchoring balloons are being developed, first-generation balloons have been withdrawn from the market...

Nasogastric tube (NGT) placement in anesthetized and intubated is sometimes very challenging with more than 50% failure rate in the first attempt. We describe a newer innovative Sahu's three in one, technique with use of GlideScope and forward placement of intubated trachea by external laryngeal maneuver, these both techniques lead to separation of trachea from esophagus so that endoscopic jejunal feeding tube guide wire strengthen NGT can be guided and manipulated to esophagus under direct vision. After informed consent, we used Sahu's three in one combo technique to insert NGT in adult anesthetized and intubated patients of both the sexes with high success in the first attempt...

OBJECTIVE: Examination of major duodenal papilla (MDP) by standard forward-viewing esophagogastroduodenoscopy (S-EGD) is limited. Cap assisted esophagogastroduodenoscopy (CA-EGD) utilizes a cap fitted to the tip of the endoscope that can depress the mucosal folds and thus might improve visualization of MDP. The aim of this study was to compare CA-EGD to S-EGD for complete examination of the MDP. METHODS: Prospective, randomized, blinded, controlled crossover study...

Background and Study Aims Surgical treatment for acute subdural hematomas (ASDHs) in elderly patients is still considered unsatisfactory. Series focusing on the use of conventional craniotomy or decompressive craniectomy in such patients report discouraging results. Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) score at admission seems to be crucial in the decision-making process. Deteriorating patients with a GCS score between 9 and 11 are those who would benefit most from the surgical treatment. Unfortunately, elderly patients often present other comorbidities that greatly increase the risk of severe complications after major neurosurgical procedures under general anesthesia...

The aim of the paper was to propose a score for performance evaluation in colonoscopy units. METHOD: We proposed a score (CDCD score - Cecal intubation, polyp Detection rate, Cleansing and Documentation of cecal intubation) based on the following parameters that assess the quality of colonoscopy units: total colonoscopies rate, polyp detection rate, rate of cecal intubation photo record, rate of recorded Boston bowel preparation scale (BBPS) (rated 1 to 5 stars). The mean score obtained based on the above mentioned criteria was used as a quality parameter of the endoscopy unit...

BACKGROUND: Endoscopic neurosurgical procedures involving the upper cervical vertebrae are challenging due to a narrow operating field and close proximity to vital anatomical structures. Historically, transoropharyngeal (transoral) endoscopy has been the preferred approach. More recently, however, an endoscopic transnasal approach was developed as an alternative method in hopes to reduce postoperative dysphagia, a common complication following transoral neurosurgery. METHODS: Twenty-two endoscopic neurosurgical cases involving the odontoid or C1 vertebra were reviewed between January 1, 2005 and December 31, 2015 (17 and 5 through transoral and transnasal approaches, respectively)...

Endotracheal intubation is a common procedure, rarely associated with life-threatening complications (e.g., tracheal rupture, necrosis, foreign body). A 1.5-year-old English Bulldog was presented for respiratory distress, with increased respiratory efforts and stridor, 2 days after endotracheal intubation. Cervical and thoracic radiographs disclosed a severe narrowing of the tracheal lumen associated with an intraluminal soft-tissue structure at the thoracic inlet. Tracheoscopy confirmed the presence of an obstructive fibrinous tracheal pseudomembrane (OFTP) creating a 1-way valve obstruction...

Posttracheostomy tracheal stenosis is a rare complication of prolonged tracheal intubation. Treatment modalities that may be used include surgical resection and anastomosis, endoscopic tracheal dilation, laser resection, and tracheal stenting. We describe a novel salvage modality for dilation of a symptomatic tracheal stenosis using a percutaneous tracheostomy dilator wherein rigid bronchoscopic dilation was not feasible and balloon tracheal dilation had failed.

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the feasibility, effectiveness and safety of a new snare-assisted peroral direct choledochoscopy/pancreatoscopy (PDCPS) technique. METHODS: From November 2014 through December 2016, 20 consecutive patients with indications for PDCPS were enrolled in this observational study. Endoscopic retrograde cholangiography was initially performed using a conventional duodenoscope, and endoscopic papillary balloon dilation was performed. Next, an ultra-slim endoscope was inserted to perform the PDCPS; a snare tightened around the end of the scope's bending section facilitated its entry into the common bile duct (CBD)...

Vocal fold immobility is a relatively rare complication that can occur after tracheal intubation. Differential diagnoses include a rare clinical entity called unilateral vocal fold adductor paralysis in which only branches entering the thyroarytenoid and lateral cricoarytenoid muscles of the recurrent laryngeal nerve become paralyzed. Computed tomography and laryngeal electromyography are required to distinguish this condition from others such as cricoarytenoid dislocation/subluxation. Here, we describe two patients who developed vocal fold adductor paralysis after intubation...

Nina Pirlich, Jana A Lohse, Rüdiger R Noppens
A patient's willingness to cooperate is an absolute precondition for successful awake intubation of the trachea. Whilst drug-sedation of patients can jeopardize their spontaneous breathing, topical anesthesia of the airway is a popular technique. The spray-as-you-go technique represents one of the simplest opportunities to anesthetize the airway mucosa. The application of local anesthetic through the working channel of the flexible endoscope is a widespread practice for anesthetists as well as pulmonologists...
