During the laryngoscopy with a Macintosh, an epiglottic
mass was identified.
Contrast-enhanced computed tomography (CT) scan of the neck demonstrated edema and asymmetry of the epiglottic
There is also improved understanding in the importance and challenge of managing epiglottic
In our study duration of laryngoscopy and intubation was comparable in both the groups, indicating that force applied at epiglottic
fold by Macintosh blade to be the main reason for stress response.
(4) Patients sometimes present with relapsing acute epiglottitis or an episode of epiglottic
Substantial amounts of air cause epiglottic
and paratracheal swelling, completely obliterating the anatomy and normal landmarks for intubation as in this case.
The traumatic injury in the sublingual area however became worst, causing a retropharyngeal and epiglottic
The device also has an epiglottic
blocker which prevents down folding of the epiglottis and obstruction of the distal opening airway.
Presence of tracheal secretions was the main finding in the endoscopy (16/36) followed by pharyngeal lymphoid hyperplasia (14/36), carina edema (13/36), EIPH (9/36), dorsal displacement of soft palate (3/36), recurrent laryngeal neuropathy (1/36), and epiglottic
His fiber optic nasal endoscopic examination revealed prominent epiglottic
