Abstract

This case report describes the alternative use of an oral endotracheal tube fastener in a pediatric patient with junctional epidermolysis bullosa. The patient underwent dental treatment in the operating room under general anesthesia and had a medical history of junctional epidermolysis bullosa, prior secondary anemia, clubbed feet, and past methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus infection secondary to blistering. The oral endotracheal tube fastener was used in a nontraditional manner to avoid contact of the oral tube and tape with the epidermis and thus prevent blistering. Lubricated gauze was applied to the patient's eyes for protection, and lubricant was applied to the lips and perioral skin before intubation and during dental treatment. Postoperatively the patient exhibited minimal blistering secondary to intubation and dental treatment.
