AbstractAbstract PDF
Severe bronchospasm during cardiac surgery is an uncommon, but serious problem. A 52-year-old woman with a mosaic attenuation pattern on the whole lung field was scheduled for repair of an atrial septal defect under minimally invasive cardiac surgery. Bronchospasm developed intraoperatively, but the underlying ventilatory impairment, poor performance of one-lung ventilation and initiation of cardiopulmonary bypass delayed diagnosing and treating the bronchospasm. The bronchospasm induced severe pulmonary edema that required postoperative ventilatory care.
