Hakan Erkal, Esra Onuray, Yaman Özyurt, Zuhal Arıkan

Apert’s syndrome is a congenital disorder characterized by cranyositosis, maxillary hypoplasia and syndactyly accompanied by cardiac, gastrointestinal and genitourinary defects. General anesthesia frequently applied to pediatric patients with Apert’s syndrome for orthopedic surgeries. In this paper, we reported our general anesthesia application to a 3-months female case diagnosed with Apert’s syndrome. We used sevoflurane 1-8 % and fentanyl (1 meg.kg-1) for anesthesia induction and maintained anesthesia with nitrous oxide 40 %, oxygen, and sevoflurane 1-3 % after introducing laryngeal mask airway (LMA). There were not seen any problems during anesthesia

Keywords: Anesthesia, Apert’s syndrome, complication, sevoflurane
