STUDY OBJECTIVES To measure the tracheal diameters (TDs) [transverse (Tr) TD, and anteroposterior (AP) TD] and left main bronchus diameters (LBDs) [Tr and AP] using multiplane CT scan reconstructions with a tridimensional correction of the declination. To evaluate the relationship between clinical variables and CT scan diameters of the tracheobronchial tree. To aid in the selection of a double-lumen tube of appropriate size. DESIGN Prospective observational study. SETTING Private and… CONTINUE READING
