Abstract

Perioperative management of a large mediastinal mass poses a substantial clinical challenge, particularly during induction of general anesthesia. Critical airway compression with inability to ventilate is a significant threat. We discuss a patient undergoing resection of a complex mediastinal mass who upon induction and attempted intubation had insufficient oxygenation and ventilation. We initiated veno-venous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation allowing for a controlled resection of the complex tumor. She recovered successfully with no complication. Our case exemplifies the importance of multidisciplinary coordination in the perioperative management of the patient with a complex mediastinal mass.
