BACKGROUND: Laser photocoagulation (LPC) is a surgical procedure used in the treatment of premature retinopathy that may cause retinal detachment and blindness if not diagnosed and treated early. The anesthesia method used in LPC varies from sedoanalgesia to general anesthesia and airway management varies from spontaneous ventilation to endotracheal intubation. In this study, we aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of sedoanalgesia applications and this anesthesia procedure concerning intraoperative and postoperative complications by avoiding intubation and mechanical ventilation in premature infants with a fragile population.
