Cukurova Medical Journal
Öz Purpose: General anesthesia applications in dentistry are becoming increasingly widespread. Risks related to anesthesia should be seriously questioned in the patient group under dental treatment planning under general anesthesia. We aimed to evaluate the clinical and demographic data of patients who were operated with general anesthesia and sedation during our study in our hospital, and discussed in the light of the literature. Materials and Methods: A retrospective study of 3380 cases
... of 3380 cases treated between April 2014 and April 2016 was reviewed. Demographic data obtained from patient files, ASA Scores, length of hospital stay,type of anesthesia, duration of anesthesia,complications occurring, anesthetic agents and analgesics used, patients with syndrome and the desired consultations were evaluated Results: Of the 3380 cases, 55% were female, 45% were male and the mean age was 11.23 ± 12.09. The distribution according to ASA scores was 84.4% ASA I, 15.2% ASA II, 0.4% ASA III. In 3085 patients the procedure was performed by outpatient surgery procedure, while 276 patients were treated inpatient. The consultations requested from the patients were mostly from the pediatric and neurology clinics. The most common postoperative complication was bradycardia, and the least complication was difficult intubation. The most common causes of comorbidities were mental retardation, congenital heart disease, and epilepsy. Conclusion: The method of anesthesia is also important especially in the pediatric age group due to the frequency of genetic syndromes, mental retardation, concomitant cardiac and respiratory problems. Precautions should be taken to avoid mortality and morbidity due to anesthesia. Vital risks should be avoided.
