AbstractWe describe the anaesthetic management of a patient who underwent transthoracic endoscopic vagotomy. One-lung ventilation was necessary to provide adequate surgical access. Potential intra-operative problems involved arterial oxygen saturation during one-lung ventilation, unequal intra-thoracic pressures causing mediastinal displacement and inadvertent myocardial injury by surgical instruments and diathermy. The management of these problems and the benefits of endoscopic surgery to the patient are discussed.
