AbstractAbstract PDF
Atelectasis is a fairly common complication in patients undergoing general anesthesia. However, atelectasis caused secretion plugs in patients with tracheopleural fistula is less common than other airway fistulas such as trachea and bronchus. Anesthesiologists should make every effort for thorough preoperative preparation to prevent atelectasis and using appropriate and aggressive treatment, including tracheal or bronchial clearing and end expiratory positive pressure. We report a case of an intraoperative occurrence of atelectasis of the lower lobe of a dependent lung in a patient with a tracheopleural fistula during single lung ventilation for primary closure.

AbstractAbstract PDF
It is known that the incidence of arrhythmia related to anesthesia and operation is significantly higher in thoracic surgery such as cardiac, lung operation than any other operation, and atrial fibrillation is the most common arrhythmia among these arrhythmias. Besides operative sites, age and underlying cardiac problem such as hypertension, cardiomegaly can be important risk factors for intra, post-operative atrial fibrillation in non-thoracic surgery. Through many investigations, we can find that age is the most important because age related anatomical, physiological cardiac changes make elderly patients more susceptible to development of atrial fibrillation. In this case, we report atrial fibrillation that occurred after induction of general anesthesia in an elderly patient undergoing open reduction of upper arm fracture.
