The aim of this study was to compare the perioperative and postoperative respiratory complications between laryngeal mask (LM) airway and tracheal intubation (TI) in children undergoing percutaneous internal ring suturing (PIRS) for inguinal hernia. From October 2015 to February 2019, 135 pediatric patients (97 males and 38 females) with median age of 4 years, who underwent PIRS for inguinal hernia, were included in study. Patients were divided in two groups. In group I ( = 94) LM airway was used, and in group II ( = 41) TI was performed. Demographic data, surgical and anesthesia times, American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) classification, muscle relaxation, level of pneumoperitoneum, and complications of anesthesia were compared between the groups. No significant differences among compared groups regarding age ( = .435), sex ( = .306), body mass index ( = .548), ASA classification ( = .506), level of pneumoperitoneum ( = .968), and duration of surgery ( = .968) were found. Duration of anesthesia was significantly shorter when LM was used compared to TI (25 minutes versus 36 minutes; < .00001). During recovery from anesthesia, the incidences of desaturation ( = 1 versus = 5; = .003), laryngospasm ( = 2 versus = 5; = .015), and cough ( = 0 versus = 4; = .002) were significantly lower when LM airway was used for securing of the airway. Postoperative incidences of sore throat ( = .543), bronchospasm ( = .128), and aspiration ( = .128) did not differ between LM and TI. The use of LM in pediatric anesthesia results in a decrease in a number of common complications and significantly shortened patient anesthesia time. It is therefore a valuable device for the management of the pediatric airway for laparoscopic hernia repair in children.

A type of oropharyngeal airway that provides an alternative to endotracheal intubation and standard mask anesthesia in certain patients. It is introduced into the hypopharynx to form a seal around the larynx thus permitting spontaneous or positive pressure ventilation without penetration of the larynx or esophagus. It is used in place of a facemask in routine anesthesia. The advantages over standard mask anesthesia are better airway control, minimal anesthetic gas leakage, a secure airway during patient transport to the recovery area, and minimal postoperative problems.
Branches of the vagus (tenth cranial) nerve. The recurrent laryngeal nerves originate more caudally than the superior laryngeal nerves and follow different paths on the right and left sides. They carry efferents to all muscles of the larynx except the cricothyroid and carry sensory and autonomic fibers to the laryngeal, pharyngeal, tracheal, and cardiac regions.
Branches of the VAGUS NERVE. The superior laryngeal nerves originate near the nodose ganglion and separate into external branches, which supply motor fibers to the cricothyroid muscles, and internal branches, which carry sensory fibers. The RECURRENT LARYNGEAL NERVE originates more caudally and carries efferents to all muscles of the larynx except the cricothyroid. The laryngeal nerves and their various branches also carry sensory and autonomic fibers to the laryngeal, pharyngeal, tracheal, and cardiac regions.
A protrusion of abdominal structures through the retaining ABDOMINAL WALL. It involves two parts: an opening in the abdominal wall, and a hernia sac consisting of PERITONEUM and abdominal contents. Abdominal hernias include groin hernia (HERNIA, FEMORAL; HERNIA, INGUINAL) and VENTRAL HERNIA.
Congenital anomalous dilitation of the laryngeal saccule that may extend internally into the airway or externally through the thyrohyoid membrane.
