Postoperative Pulmonary Complications Following Laparoscopy

Postoperative pulmonary complications (PPCs) unrelated to anesthesia, especially hydropneumothorax, are rare after gynecologic laparoscopy. Hydropneumothorax can cause respiratory failure and be life-threatening, however. Awareness, prompt diagnosis, and timely intervention are crucial for clinical management. We review the literature for PPCs, including pneumothorax, hydrothorax, hydropneumothorax, and pleural effusion following laparoscopy, and also present a recent case of hydropneumothorax seen at our institution.
