Title:
Anterior Mediastinal Mass in a Patient Requiring Lung Isolation
Authors:
Janardhanam, Ram; Patel, Vijay; Arthur, Mary E.
Abstract:
A patient with an anterior mediastinal mass poses numerous challenges to an anesthesiologist, the major concerns being pulmonary or cardiac collapse on induction of anesthesia. Preoperative evaluation of the chest x-ray as well as the CT scan is valuable in assessing potential problems regarding management of this type of airway. An awake fiberoptic intubation is the preferred method of securing the airway.
