Abstract

We used inhaled epoprostenol (with intravenous phenylephrine) during one-lung ventilation to improve oxygenation in a patient with severe interstitial lung disease undergoing video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery. The pharmacologic manipulation of pulmonary blood flow remains an underused strategy for the management of hypoxemia during one-lung ventilation. 2010 The Society of Thoracic Surgeons.
