Thoracic Anesthesia Intubated Versus Nonintubated General Anesthesia for Video-Assisted Thoracoscopic Surgery—A Case-Control Study

Joshi, K. R., Solli, P., Scarci, M., Klein, A. A., Miles, L. F., Irons, J. F., Martinez, G.
(Abstracted from J Cardiothorac Vasc Anesth, 31:411–417, 2017) Although deemed mandatory to provide safe and optimal operating conditions for surgical manipulation, general anesthesia with endobronchial intubation and 1-lung positive-pressure ventilation for thoracic surgery has been known to cause lung injury. Nonintubated thoracic anesthetic techniques for video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) in awake and sedated patients can be an alternate method to decrease the overall invasiveness and surgical stress.
