Abstract

With the development of minimally invasive thoracoscopic and anesthesia control techniques, intravenous anesthesia with spontaneous ventilation video-assisted thoracic surgery (SV-VATS) has been increasingly employed in management of pleural effusion, bullectomy for pneumothorax, mediastinal biopsy, thymectomy and thymomectomy, wedge lung resections, anatomical lung resections for radical treatment of lung cancer and even more complex surgical procedures including tracheal resection and sleeve lobectomy (1-7) This changes in surgical strategies have been applied in the believe that SV-VATS can avoid adverse effects of mechanical ventilation and the residual effects of muscle relaxants, can achieve a faster recovery of respiratory muscle function and lower operative morbidity (7,8).
