Because in an anesthesiologist’s hands, an airway tube is a common intervention with an acceptable risk profile.

A light general anesthetic is a simpler anesthetic than a femoral nerve block, a spinal, or an epidural anesthetic.

If there is already a visa on the hands, no money is required anywhere, only tickets for travelling. Sometimes the scenario is different: women do not ask for money for tickets or visa, allegedly they are coming to you at their own expense, but they are bringing some rare, old or expensive thing as a gift with them, customs stops them and wants money for it. Nobody would bring some very rare or expensive present for a first meeting. When you receive a letter with notification about a will of a late person whose name you hear for the first time, winning in lottery that you never participated in, request to help load money to the account of a stranger or export-import gold for a reward – this is Nigerian scam. Sometimes you start communicating with a woman, she has beautiful model like photos and she writes you wonderful long messages in good English.

After several messages it appears that she does not speak English, all this time she went to a dating agency who helped her to translate her letters, but now she does not have money to pay for translation and you need to send money to this agency in order to keep communicating with her.

A lesser number of knee arthroscopies are performed under a regional anesthetic which does not require a breathing tube.

The regional anesthetic options include a blockade of the femoral nerve located in your groin or numbing the entire lower half of your body with a spinal or epidural anesthetic injected into your low back.

A small number of knee arthroscopies are done with local anesthesia injected into your knee joint, in combination with intravenous sedative medications into your IV.

Why are most knee arthroscopies performed with general anesthesia, which typically requires an airway tube?

Do not believe it, this is a translation scam scenario.

Photos of the woman might be probably stolen from some model and anyway it is not the letters from any women, it is that translating agency managers’ work.

One of the most common questions I hear from patients immediately prior to their surgical anesthetic is, “Will I have a breathing tube down my throat during anesthesia? Let’s answer this question for some common surgeries: KNEE ARTHROSCOPY: Common knee arthroscopy procedures are meniscectomies and anterior cruciate ligament reconstructions.
