Abstract

A case that underwent bilateral video-assisted thoracoscopic surgical (VATS) biopsy combined with pneumonectomy is presented. The patient developed hypoxia during the contralateral VATS biopsy. His hypoxia was treated with positive expiratory pressure (PEEP) to the dependent lung and apneic oxygen insufflation to the operative lung. The cause was probably airway obstruction due to his intraluminal tumor plus secretions. This case report contains interesting aspects in the anesthetic management.
