PMID:  11412295     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A 51-year-old man presented with a right upper lobe adenocarcinoma with carinal extension. He underwent a right sleeve pneumonectomy, which involved a carinal resection with anastomosis between the trachea and left main bronchus. This report describes the successful use of jet ventilation, administered via the lumen of the bronchial blocker of a Univent tube. During 15 min of carinal resection, oxygenation of his left lung was maintained with the bronchial blocker bridging the airway discontinuity.
