Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Children with arthrogryposis multiplex congenita often require multiple surgical procedures. We present a case of a neonate with arthrogryposis multiplex congenita in which intubation was judged to be technically difficult and in which peripheral regional anesthesia allowed us to obtain a satisfactory muscle biopsy without risking the complications of general anesthesia.
