PMID:  20850084     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
This article presents a comprehensive narrative review of the published literature relating to ultrasound imaging relevant to anesthesia for ear, nose, and throat (ENT) surgery. The review comprises 2 main subject areas: the use of ultrasonography related to assessment and management of the airway, and the use of ultrasonography related to nerve blockade for ENT surgery. The relevant sonoanatomy and suitable probe placement are illustrated in relation to applicable regional anatomy (they are not discussed). The possible value of the use of ultrasonography to improve existing clinical practice in these areas is explored.
