BACKGROUND Postoperative pulmonary complications (PPCs) are common and result in prolonged hospital stays, higher costs and increased mortality. However, data on the incidence and predictors of PPCs after major oral and maxillofacial surgery with microvascular reconstruction are rare. This retrospective analysis identifies perioperative risk factors for postoperative pulmonary complications (PPCs) after major oral and maxillofacial surgery with microvascular reconstruction.
