Intubation of a first time parturient with Klippel-Feil syndrome
We describe a case of a first time parturient with Klippel-Feil syndrome (KFS). KFS is defined by fusion of cervical vertebrae and the clinical triad of low posterior hairline, short wide neck and limited neck movement. KFS represents a complex challenging anaesthesiologic condition due to limited movement of the neck and the risk of irreversible neurologic sequelae if manipulated, as well as unpredictable effect of neuroaxial anaesthesia. We recommend awake fiberoptic intubation for airway management in this rare disorder and stress the necessity of early anaesthesiologic assessment in any cervical spine disorder that might need airway management.
