oa Southern African Journal of Anaesthesia and Analgesia - Intubation of a neonate with glossopalatine ankylosis using a paraglossal approach and a laryngoscope with a straight blade : case report
Glossopalatine ankylosis presents a challenge to the anaesthesiologist because of its intraoral attachment which obstructs the view of the oral cavity. When preoperative assessment by direct laryngoscopy is possible, a paraglossal approach using a straight blade can be used in such cases. We share our anaesthesia experience of a neonate with glossopalatine ankylosis.
