Hereditary angioedema (HAE) is a rare disease, little known to the medical and dental community, but with a growing rate of hospitalization over the years. HAE is due to a deficit/dysfunction of C1 esterase inhibitor which leads to an increase in vascular permeability and the appearance of edemas widespread in all body areas. The airways are the most affected and laryngeal swelling, which can occur, it is dangerous for the patient's life, is also a sensitive spot in our daily practice, therefore, it is also important to be aware of all the signs of this disease. Episodes of HAE have no obvious cause, but it can be triggered by anxiety, invasive procedures and trauma. So this disease is a major problem in oral and maxillofacial surgery, ENT, endoscopy, emergency medicine and anesthesia because even simple procedures can cause laryngeal edema. The recommendations on the management of HAE include long- and short- term prophylaxis and treatment for acute attacks, however, the importance of anxiety control during the operating phases is undervalued. The present work suggests an experimental protocol for the surgery management of HAE patients with the help of nitrous oxide, with a brief review of the literature on this topic.

Abstract

Hereditary angioedema (HAE) is a rare disease, little known to the medical and dental community, but with a growing rate of hospitalization over the years. HAE is due to a deficit/dysfunction of C1 esterase inhibitor which leads to an increase in vascular permeability and the appearance of edemas widespread in all body areas. The airways are the most affected and laryngeal swelling, which can occur, it is dangerous for the patient's life, is also a sensitive spot in our daily practice, therefore, it is also important to be aware of all the signs of this disease. Episodes of HAE have no obvious cause, but it can be triggered by anxiety, invasive procedures and trauma. So this disease is a major problem in oral and maxillofacial surgery, ENT, endoscopy, emergency medicine and anesthesia because even simple procedures can cause laryngeal edema. The recommendations on the management of HAE include long- and short- term prophylaxis and treatment for acute attacks, however, the importance of anxiety control during the operating phases is undervalued. The present work suggests an experimental protocol for the surgery management of HAE patients with the help of nitrous oxide, with a brief review of the literature on this topic.
