The Bonfils intubation fiberscope (BF), a rigid medical device with a curved tip, is exclusively used in anesthesiology for orotracheal intubation (OTI). The objective of the study was to evaluate the feasibility and the tolerance of an intubation procedure realized by means of the BF (BFI) in awake adult patients with predicted difficult intubation (PDI), in the context of ENT cancer surgery.
The intubation is performed under local anesthesia (either nasal, oral, or intercricothyroidal) and sedation using Remifentanyl (AIVOC) with spontaneous ventilation. The primary endpoint is the rate of BFI meeting quality requirements: the procedure must be both successful (≤ 2 attempts and duration < 180 sec) and well tolerated (Fahey score < 2). The secondary endpoints include the difficulties met by the operator during the BFI and patient's perception of the intubation procedure, evaluated in the recovery room and 7 days after the intervention. Sample size is calculated using a one-stage Fleming design with p0=80%, p1=95%, alpha=5% and 80% power, for a total of 32 evaluable patients.

The purpose of this study was to compare the four different intubation devices in 6 different scenarios.
Background: Conventional intubation of the trachea and consequent prone positioning of anaesthetized patients with cervical spine instability may result in secondary neurological injury. H...
In this study, fiberoptic intubation through Boussignac valve, while ventilation of morbidly obese patients is maintained through the ventilator, will be studied. Researchers suggest that ...
For Head and neck cancer and uncooperative patients, blind nasogastric tube (NGT) insertion may sometimes be very difficult because of the anatomical obstructions in the pharynx and uncoor...
OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to determine the sensitivity and specificity of various anatomic measurements alone or in combination in predicting difficult intubation. The investigators hypo...
Pediatric otolaryngologists are frequently called to assist in difficult airway management in newborns with Pierre Robin Sequence (PRS) who have microretrognathia, glossoptosis, and an anterior larynx...
In the armamentarium of an anesthesiologist, videolaryngoscopy is a valuable addition to secure the airway. However, when the videolaryngoscope (VLS) offers no solution, few options remain. Earlier, w...
To determine the prevalence of and risk factors for cardiac arrest during intubation in ICU, as well as the association of ICU intubation-related cardiac arrest with 28-day mortality.
Managing the airway of an infant with Pierre Robin sequence (PRS) is particularly challenging for anesthesiologists. Patients with PRS have the triad of micrognathia, glossoptosis, and airway obstruct...
A condition in which abnormal cells have not spread outside the duct, lobule, or nipple to other tissues of the breast. There are 3 types of breast carcinoma in situ: DUCTAL CARCINOMA IN SITU; LOBULAR CARCINOMA IN SITU; and PAGET DISEASE OF THE NIPPLE
A transplantable carcinoma of the rat that originally appeared spontaneously in the mammary gland of a pregnant albino rat, and which now resembles a carcinoma in young transplants and a sarcoma in older transplants. (Stedman, 25th ed)
An adenocarcinoma characterized by the presence of cells resembling the glandular cells of the ENDOMETRIUM. It is a common histological type of ovarian CARCINOMA and ENDOMETRIAL CARCINOMA. There is a high frequency of co-occurrence of this form of adenocarcinoma in both tissues.
A heterogeneous aggregate of at least three distinct histological types of lung cancer, including SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA; ADENOCARCINOMA; and LARGE CELL CARCINOMA. They are dealt with collectively because of their shared treatment strategy.
A heterogeneous group of sporadic or hereditary carcinoma derived from cells of the KIDNEYS. There are several subtypes including the clear cells, the papillary, the chromophobe, the collecting duct, the spindle cells (sarcomatoid), or mixed cell-type carcinoma.
The role of medical devices in healthcare is essential. The diversity and innovativeness of this sector contribute significantly to enhance the quality and efficacy of healthcare. Covering a wide range of products, from simple bandages to the...
An anesthesiologist (US English) or anaesthetist (British English) is a physician trained in anesthesia and perioperative medicine. Anesthesiologists are physicians who provide medical care to patients in a wide variety of (usually acute) situations. ...
