Anesthetic management of burn-associated dilated cardiomyopathy with difficult intubation for bilateral correction of ectropion.
Anesth Pain Intens Care Jan ;24(5):552-4.
Anesthetic management of patients with dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) can be challenging for anesthesiologists because it is associated with high perioperative mortality rate. This case report describes successful management and important anesthetic considerations in a 15-year-old boy, a known case of burn-associated dilated cardiomyopathy, who underwent bilateral ectropion correction surgery. In such patients, it is imperative to have meticulous preoperative planning, wise selection of medications, and tailored anesthetic technique in order to achieve a favourable outcome.
