Post-operative respiratory outcomes using a standard extubation protocol after elective gastrostomy tube placement in pediatric patients with spinal muscular atrophy type 1 by ProQuest


Medical records of spinal muscular atrophy type 1 patients, who underwent elective laparoscopic Nissen fundoplication and gastrostomy tube insertion and extubation using a standardized clinical protocol, were retrospectively reviewed. All seven patients were successfully extubated using the protocol and discharged home on bi-level positive airway pressure without oxygen supplementation. There were no major respiratory complications in the post-operative period. [PUBLICATION ABSTRACT]
