The timing of glottic
view, tracheal tube placement, and tracheal intubation were confirmed by CO2 waveforms.
(5-7) have shown this surgery to be a useful, inexpensive alternative to C[O.sub.2] lasers, with much simpler equipment for the treatment of glottic
and selected supraglottic tumors.
Endotracheal intubation requires the elevation of the epiglottis and exposure of the glottic
opening, which can be obtained by a forward and upward movement of the laryngoscope blade to lift the base of the tongue.
Supracricoid partial laryngectomy with cricohyoidoepiglottopexy for "early" glottic
carcinoma classified as T1-T2N0 invading the anterior commissure.
We considered as OFD the presence of vocal nodules, polyps, edema, and thickening of the vocal folds, and as FD the minimal structural alteration of the coverage, glottic
clefts, and incorrect vocal habits.
In our previously used method, we had usually introduced the sharp needle through the thyroid lamina, ELT and then glottic
Although the use of large-volume, low-pressure cuffs markedly reduces the occurrence of cuff injury, glottic
stenosis continues to occur at a high frequency, with the incidence of postintubation tracheal stenosis in intensive care units being 6-21%, although only 1-2% of patients are symptomatic or have severe stenosis .
Arytenoidectomy provides a larger airway for respiration, which reduces the voice quality, because of the insufficient occlusion on the glottic
The results of definitive radiotherapy for patients with T3 glottic
carcinomas are compared to those following surgery in a series of 118 patients treated at the University of Florida.
After achieving proper muscle relaxation, an attempt at intubation was performed with either the D-blade size 4 using a hockey-stick stylet or the Macintosh blade size 3 or 4 with a standard stylet during which the following parameters were obtained: glottic
visualization using the Cormack Lehane (C-L) classification(16,17 )and IDS(13) determined by seven variables:
In his conference, entitled The glottic
situation 15years after the Declaration of Independence (2006), the reputed Romanist Anatol Ciobanu, corresponding member of the Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Moldova, observed: "Along all these years of independence, our glottic
progress is obvious.
Both Truview and Trupti blades offer better glottic
view and lesser force exerted during intubation when compared with the standard Macintosh laryngoscope.
