Anesth Analg 79:1195, 1994 • • • • GA for C/S the patient received sodium citrate (30 mL per os), was preoxygenated for 4 min, and had a modified rapid-sequence induction of anesthesia performed using thiopental (320 mg: 4 mg/kg) and vecuronium (10 mg) while applying cricoid pressure. The patient was ventilated with isoflurane (1%) in oxygen until twitch response was eliminated (4 min postinduction). The first attempt at laryngoscopy with a Mac 3 blade failed. A second laryngoscopy with a Miller 2 blade was unsuccessful because it was not long enough to lift the epiglottis. Ventilation was reinstituted after rapid oxygen desaturation from 98% to 80%, and it continued until oxygen saturation returned to 95%. Copious oral secretions were suctioned. Laryngoscopy(3) with a Mac 4 blade was performed twice and provided visualization only of the arytenoids. Nonetheless, the endotracheal tube was passed anterior to the arytenoids and placement verified by bilateral breath sounds, capnography, and increasing oxygen saturations. The patient was hemodynamically stable throughout this period. Frothy secretions were suctioned from the endotracheal tube. The pH of these secretions was measured and found to be neutral. Surgery then proceeded without incident. Induction to delivery time was approximately 30 min; however, uterine incision to delivery time was within normal limits. An infant boy was delivered with Apgar scores of 1 at 1 min, 4 at 5 min and 9 at 10 min. The results of an umbilical venous blood gas test were pH 7.09, PCO2 86, PO2 13, HCO3 25.1, and a base deficit of -5.2, indicating an acute respiratory acidosis. The newborn was intubated and ventilated for 20 min until the respiratory acidosis was resolved and the anesthetic vapors exhaled. No further resuscitative measures were required……………………..

Anesthetic management of three patients with myotonic dystrophy in a family Masui. 2004; 53:269-72. • Case-1: A 24-year-old woman was admitted because of pressing hydramnion. She was treated by ritodrine hydrochlorides leading to rhabdomyolysis, and she was diagnosed as myotonic dystrophy. She underwent cesarean section because of urgent premature birth. The surgery was performed with spinal anesthesia using tetracaine. Case-2: A 1-year-old boy, the son of Case 1, underwent orchiopexy. He showed respiratory distress at birth and needed respiratory support for 140 days. The surgery was performed under general anesthesia combined with caudal anesthesia. Anesthesia was induced with nitrous oxide-oxygen-sevoflurane. He was intubated without muscle relaxants. Since he recovered consciousness soon after the surgery, he was extubated and returned to the ward. Case-3: A 30-year-old woman, the sister of Case 1, underwent tonsillectomy. At the age of 27 she underwent salpingectomy under general anesthesia with nitrous oxide-oxygen-halothane, after which she was diagnosed as myotonic dystrophy. She was anesthetized with propofol and fentanyl. Because severity of the myotonic dystrophy varies among the patients, the strategy for anesthesia should be planned on each patient. Generally speaking, regional anesthesia including spinal and epidural anesthesia is preferable

No neuromuscular blocker was used at any time.,but N2O was added intraoperatively. Anaesthesia maintained with a TCI of 6 µg/ml which was reduced to 5 µg/ ml after 30 min and 4 µg /ml at 60 min. Total operative time was 75 min. Towards the end of the procedure the target concentration was set to 0 mg/ ml so that the reduction in calculated propofol concentration could be followed. The patient did not commence spontaneous respiration until the calculated propofol concentration decreased to less than 2 µ g/ ml. Respiration was slow and shallow initially but improved with time. There were no signs of awakening or response to voice even when the predicted propofol concentration was less than 1 µ g/ ml. He was observed for a further 30 min with no change He was then transferred to the intensive care unit where he was observed while still breathing spontaneously through the tracheal tube, attached to a T–piece. Arterial oxygen saturation and end–tidal carbon dioxide remained satisfactory throughout. Approximately 1 h after the end of surgery, he began to show signs of awakening and extubated his own trachea. His subsequent postoperative course was uneventful and the following morning he was discharged to the general ward.

Anaesth. 2000; 85:407-409 • • • • • • • 13 patients with myotonic dystrophy scheduled for oropharyngeal and neck surgery, The median age was 21 yr (range: 11–42 yr). enrolled in an open prospective study. able to function adequately, with good physical mobility and without handicap. no history of systemic disease and none was taking medication. Physical examination showed wasting of thenar and masseteric muscles. Preoperative haematological and biochemical investigations, ECG, echocardiograpy and lung function tests were normal. . No pre-anaesthetic medication was administered. Anaesthesia was induced with fentanyl 0.05 mg, propofol 2.5 mg kg-1 and atracurium 0.5 mg kg-1. After intubation of the trachea, the patients' lungs were ventilated with 70% N2O in oxygen and anaesthesia was maintained with a continuous infusion of propofol 6 mg kg-1 h-1, bolus fentanyl 2 µ g kg-1 and incremental doses of atracurium 0.2 mg kg-1. After patients had regained consciousness and four equal `train of four' twitches were observed, the trachea was extubated.

Johnson GW,Chadwick S,Eadsforth P, Hartopp I.Anaesthesia and myotonia.Br.J.Anaesth.1995;75:113. • • • • • • Ist 53–yr–old man with moderate myotonia dystrophica, ischaemic heart disease (including myocardial infarction 1 yr previously) and marked peripheral vascular disease. He presented with an acute on chronic ischaemic leg, requiring urgent exploration of his femoral artery. Temazepam 10 mg was administered orally 1 h before operation. After preoxygenation, anaesthesia was induced with fentanyl 250 mg, propofol 50 mg (the effect noted), followed 1 min later by another 25 mg. A propofol infusion was then given at a rate of 6 mg kg-1 h-1 for 15 min, then 4 mg kg-1 h-1 for another 10 min and finally 2 mg kg-1 h-1 for the remainder of the operation. Atracurium 20 mg was also given. No other sedative or analgesic drugs were used. The patient underwent femoral embolectomy without any major problems. The propofol infusion was discontinued 55 min after induction. Within 3 min his respiratory efforts were adequate and the trachea was extubated. However, although respiration was satisfactory and the airway was well maintained, it was a further 65 min before verbal contact was made with the patient. The immediate postoperative period was uneventful but on day 7 he began to develop increasing weakness, including bulbar weakness, and he died on day 14.
  • 13. Johnson GW,Chadwick S,Eadsforth P, Hartopp I.Anaesthesia and myotonia.Br.J.Anaesth.1995;75:113 • • • The second case was a 27–yr–old female with moderately severe myotonia dystrophica causing cataracts, marked muscle weakness, slurred speech and swallowing difficulties. However, she was mobile and had no respiratory or cardiovascular system involvement. She was admitted for laparoscopic cholecystectomy. The patient was premedicated with temazepam 10 mg, and heparin 5000 u. was administered s.c. After preoxygenation, fentanyl 100 mg was given and the effect observed. Three 25–mg increments of propofol were given at 1–min intervals to assess the patient's sensitivity to propofol. When it was evident that the patient was not sensitive, propofol 125 mg was given followed by atracurium 15 mg. Anaesthesia was maintained with 0.5–1.0% isoflurane and nitrous oxide in oxygen. The operation and anaesthetic proceeded uneventfully with a further 100 mg of fentanyl and 10 mg of atracurium being required. Morphine 10 mg was administered at the end of operation. The patient made a rapid recovery and was fit to leave theatre recovery 35 min after the anaesthetic. The third case was female with moderate myotonia undergoing total abdominal hysterectomy. She had mild muscle weakness with no other problems (she had only been diagnosed because of family screening.) After premedication with temazepam 10 mg, anaesthesia was induced with alfentanil 2 mg followed by propofol 140 mg given slowly. Intubation was performed without formal paralysis and anaesthesia was maintained with a propofol infusion of 10 mg kg-1 h-1 followed by 8 mg kg-1 h-1 followed by 6 mg kg-1 h-1 , and an infusion of alfentanil 1.5 mg h-1. The operation lasted 40 min and the patient rapidly regained consciousness. Her trachea was extubated within 5 min of termination of the infusions. She made an uneventful recovery and was fit to go to the ward within 45 min.

Midazolam, 1.0 mg, and fentanyl, 100 mg, were given intravenously. General anesthesia was induced with 200 mg propofol (2.5 mg/kg). Immediately after the propofol, the patient described pain in his right arm causing flexion of his right arm. After loss of consciousness, a sustained contracture occurred in the right arm and lasted approximately 20 s before spontaneously relaxing. Anesthesia, emergence, and recovery were uneventful.

Other infusions: dopamine , glyceryl trinitrate ,aprotinin 2 000 000 U was given at sternotomy, followed by another 2 000 000 U during bypass. Anticoagulation was achieved with heparin (total dose 45 000 IU). The patient was cooled to 32C on cardiopulmonary bypass and the aortic cross-clamp time was 45 min. After bypass, the residual effects of heparin were reversed with protamine 375 mg. 4 units of platelets and 2 units of fresh frozen plasma were transfused perioperatively. The decision to transfuse blood products was made on account of increased microvascular bleeding. No allogenic blood was transfused at any time. After surgery, the patient was transferred to the intensive care unit and her trachea was extubated after 12 h. Postoperative recovery was uneventful. This patient did not show any sign of muscle weakness at any time in the postoperative period and was discharged from hospital after 8 days. Lung function tests and determination of serum CK concentration were not repeated.
  • 17. Drug combinations • patient severely compromised by MELAS syndrome – 20-yr-old man presenting for a right cochlear implant had a medical history significant for MELAS syndrome. Between the ages of 1 and 5 yr, the only possible abnormality was delayed speech development. At the age of 7 yr, he was diagnosed with hearing loss. He began having episodes of dizziness and bilateral leg weakness at the age of 14 yr. Two years later, he experienced a generalized seizure. His continued neurologic deterioration led to his present condition of blindness, deafness, dementia, and severe muscle wasting. • anesthetized successfully by a combination of midazolam,propofol,cisatracurium,fentanyl,droperi dol. – Thompson VA,Wahr JA..Anesthetic Considerations in Patients Presenting with Mitochondrial Myopathy, Encephalopathy, Lactic Acidosis, and Stroke-Like Episodes (MELAS) Syndrome Anesth Analg 1997; 85:1404-6.

Anesthesia was induced with propofol and fentanyl, and the trachea was intubated without muscle relaxants. An epidural catheter was inserted via the sacral hiatus, the tip of which was located at the second lumbar level for a purpose of obtaining not only pain relief but also muscle relaxation. Anesthesia was maintained with propofol, nitrous oxide and fentanyl, combined with epidural anesthesia.

Pyloromyotomy in a patient with paramyotonia congenita.Anesth Analg. 2004; 98:68-9, • A 2-mo-old infant with paramyotonia congenita was scheduled for pyloromyotomy and repair of inguinal hernia. Diagnosis of paramyotonia congenita was done with positive family history, myotonia at eyelids, provocation by cold, and electromyogram analysis. Anesthesia was induced via face mask with sevoflurane at 4 minimum alveolar anesthetic concentration in oxygen. Tracheal intubation was attempted without a neuromuscular relaxant. Anesthesia was maintained with sevoflurane at 0.5 minimum alveolar anesthetic concentration in oxygen and remifentanil infusion at a rate of 0.2 micro g. kg(1). min(-1). After discontinuation of sevoflurane and remifentanil, the patient was awake and had full recovery of muscle activity. IMPLICATIONS: The literature concerning general anesthesia in paramyotonic patients is limited. We report a case of paramyotonia congenita in a 2-mo-old male infant undergoing surgery for pyloric stenosis and inguinal hernia after an uneventful anesthesia.
  • 20. Balanced anesthesia for emergency surgery in a patient with myotonic dystrophy Marsh D F, Scott R C,Russell SH, Hirsch NP. Anaesthesia in myotonic dystrophy Br. J. Anaesth. 199 73:124 • • A 37–yr–old women presented for surgery with a diagnosis of myotonic dystrophy. ….. Previous anaesthesia for minor elective gynaecological procedures had been uneventful. On examination she was obese and had prominent upper incisors with micrognathia. The patient was scheduled for appendicectomy and no premedication was given. Full monitoring was applied in the anaesthetic room and after preoxygenation for 5 min, anaesthesia was induced with alfentanil 0.5 mg mg followed by propofol 140 mg, with the application of cricoid pressure. OTI was achieved with the aid of a gum elastic bougie. Anaesthesia w;as maintained with isoflurane and 70% nitrous oxide in oxygen and the lungs were ventilated mechanically, without neuromuscular block. At the end of surgery, adequate spontaneous ventilation returned rapidly and the patient was transferred to the intensive care unit where an infusion of fentanyl was commenced. The trachea was extubated after return of consciousness and the patient made an uneventful recovery.
  • 21. Problems of this patient Marsh D F, Scott R C,Russell SH, Hirsch NP. Anaesthesia in myotonic dystrophy Br. J. Anaesth. 1994; 73:124 . • • • • • • • • a potentially difficult patient with regard to tracheal intubation e additional risk of aspiration of stomach contents after induction of anaesthesia. avoidance of suxamethonium is mandatory in patients with myotonic dystrophy and thus a conventional rapid sequence induction could not be performed. It was thought that a regional technique would have been a suitable alternative, but was not an option because of patient refusal. An awake intubation was considered but places the patient at risk from aspiration. Inhalation induction might cause early upper airway obstruction because of her pharyngeal muscle weakness and obesity. Induction and intubation using alfentanil and propofol alone without the need for neuromuscular block have been described recently , but have not been reported previously in a patient with myotonic dystrophy. The new non– depolarizing neuromuscular blocker, rocuronium, provides rapid onset of good intubating conditions comparable with suxamethonium and may be a suitable alternative when freely available. We consider that the intubating conditions obtained with this technique were excellent and may be considered as an alternative to conventional rapid sequence induction in patients in whom suxamethonium is contraindicated.

Her KDS resulted in chronic respiratory failure,with a permanent tracheostomy and overnight ventilatory support for the previous two years. She had three admissions during her pregnancy, one for pneumonia and two for preterm labour. Labour was induced at 37 weeks. Her labour was managed in the operating room where a "clean" anesthesia machine was ready. Cooling aids and a MH emergency kit were immediately available. Intravenous access, an arterial line and a lumbar epidural catheter were inserted before induction of labour. Ropivacaine 0.08% + fentanyl 2 microg/ml were used for patient-controlled epidural analgesia. After 6.5 hr of labour the patient required ventilation. An outlet forceps was performed for delivery.

It is advisable to avoid Ringer's lactate to prevent an exacerbation of lactic acidosis Maintaining normothermia (core and surface), normoglycaemia and avoiding metabolic stress are important in the perioperative management of these patients . In cardiac bypass, normothermia during the bypass avoids mitochondrial stress from hypothermia . LMA>ET?:anesth depth lighter,less or no muscle relaxants
  • 31. General recommendations :2 • Aerobic metabolism is already dysfunctional and any increases in basic metabolic rate (such as Peri­operative shivering) should be prevented • Any increases in O2 consumption should be minimized by maintaining normal body temperature and ade­quate surgical anaesthesia (either general or regional) should be provided • A cardiovascularly stable anaesthetic is recommended . • Any anaesthetic agents that depress cardiovascular function should be avoided. During spontaneous breathing, all oploids and sedative‑hypnotics should be carefully titrated due to the decreased ventilatory response to hypoxia and hypercarbia . • Effective perioperative analgesia will avoid increases in metabolism, provide comfort and allow early ambulation . • In spontaneously breathing patients, the cautious use of oploids is advised as oploids may further impair regulation of breathing and lead to a respiratory acidosis (in addition to any underlying metabolic acidosis
  • 32. Analgesia • A multimodal analgesic approach should be used involving the use of oploid administration (via i.v. infusion or patient‑controlled analgesia), non‑steroidal anti‑inflammatory drugs and the use of local anaesthesia at wound sites, peripheral nerves, regional plexuses and neuraxially. • In labour and delivery in women with mitochondrial myopathies, the management should be individualized according to the severity of the disease and by multidisciplinary consensus. Epidural analgesia reduces stress and work associated with labour and reduces oxygen demand during labour . Patients with documented increased lactate concentrations at rest and exercise are best managed with elective Caesarean sections as soon as fetal lung maturity has been confirmed under regional anaesthesia to prevent life‑threatening lactic acidosis during labour .
  • 33. • Butler MG,Hayes BG, Hathaway M,Begleiter M L., Specific genetic diseases at risk for sedation/anesthesia complications.Anesth.Analg 2000;91:837855 • • ABSTRACT: We reviewed of a number of genetic diseases known or at risk for sedation or anesthesia complications. Some of these conditions are relatively common (e.g., Down's syndrome) whereas others are rare or present with multiple congenital anomalies that have an impact on health care delivery.
