INTRODUCTION: Obesity is a rapidly growing health condition worldwide and negatively affects the quality and duration of life. Anesthesia for morbidly obese patients is considered to be a real challenge to the anaesthetist. In this study we aimed to evaluate difficult tracheal intubation and anesthesia mangement for obese patients.
METHODS: This study included 60 patients who had undergone sleeve gastrectomy between July 2012 and July 2017. We recorded gender, age, and body mass index (BMI) at the time of LSG, intraoperative incident, presecence comorbidities duration of surgery, length of ICU admission.
RESULTS: The relation of weight with difficult intubation was statistically significant, but it was not correlated with height and body mass index. Weight and BMI were found to have a statistically significant relationship with neck extension limitation. Difficult cases of intubation were seen mostly by these patients.
DISCUSSION AND CONCLUSION: Airway management and anesthesia of laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy. In this retrospective study, it was determined that 28% of patients had laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy and intubation difficulty was independent of body mass index. more extensive studies should be done to demonstrate the specific
