A cluster of anaphylactic reactions in children with spina bifida during general anesthesia : epidemiologic features, risk factors, and latex hypersensitivity.
Anaphylactic reactions (ARs) in high-risk pediatric patients undergoing general anesthesia, especially those with spina bifida, have been attributed to anesthetics, muscle relaxants, antimicrobials, ethylene oxide, and latex.
To identify risk factors for AR during general anesthesia and to investigate the role of latex allergy, we studied epidemiologic and immunologic characteristics of patients with ARs during general anesthesia during a 13-month cluster of such reactions at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin (case patients).
Patients with AR were compared with patients with spina bifida undergoing uneventful general anesthesia during the same period (control patients).
