Abstract

A limited number of cases of anesthetic management of Rubinstein-Taybi Syndrome (RTS) have been reported since this syndrome was first diagnosed in 1963. After some well-publicized complications following anesthesia for patients with RTS, there has been great interest in avoiding all precipitant factors and careful monitoring during intraoperative and postoperative periods. This case series examines the cases of three pediatric patients with RTS who presented to the Children's Hospital of Michigan for different surgeries. We aim in this study to share information about this rare syndrome and to emphasize how this case series allowed us to improve our anesthetic management. In each case, we adjusted our techniques using information from preceding cases to avoid complications in the following encounter.
