ANAESTHETIC MANAGEMENT OF A PATIENT WITH PREVIOUS LOBECTOMY POSTED FOR EMERGENCY MODIFIED RADICAL MASTOIDECTOMY
Pulmonary disease can be considered as a risk factor for several respiratory complications occurring during the perioperative period. Here we present a case of a middle-aged man who underwent modified radical mastoidectomy 23 y after left-sided lobectomy in order to illustrate the salient anesthetic considerations of this scenario.
