Purpose of review Pneumonectomy has the highest perioperative risk among common pulmonary resections. The purpose of this review is to update clinicians on the importance of anesthetic management for these patients. Recent findings Two complications associated with increased perioperative mortality are relevant to anesthetic management: postoperative arrhythmias and acute lung injury. The geriatric population is particularly at risk for arrhythmias. Adequate preoperative cardiac assessment and… 
Perioperative management of carinal pneumonectomy: a retrospective review of 13 patients
TLDR
The routine anesthetic and respiratory management strategy in patients undergoing carinal pneumonectomy enables positive surgical outcomes and the 30-day mortality rate was 0 %.
Transesophageal echocardiography for perioperative management in thoracic surgery
TLDR
Perioperative transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) is most often employed during cardiac surgery, but is frequently used during lung transplantation and pulmonary thromboendarterectomy.
Airway obstruction during pneumonectomy using a single lumen tube
TLDR
This case led to the conclusion that a DLT should be used for safety when carrying out thoracic surgery, and a rare case of an airway obstruction using a SLT during pneumonectomy is reported.
Anesthesia for Open Pulmonary Resection: A Systems Approach
TLDR
Clinical care pathways manage iatrogenic risk, while perioperative strategies that allow identification and optimal management of high-risk patients manage patient-attributed risk will improve outcomes and reduce hospital costs.

TLDR
Changes in right ventricular anatomy and function can occur at several stages of lung resection, starting after induction of general anesthesia and positioning, followed by one lung ventilation and surgical dissection, and can present with severe hemodynamic compromise or respiratory symptoms.
Evaluación preoperatoria y predictores de morbimortalidad en resección de cáncer de pulmón
TLDR
A narrative review of perioperative risk assessment in lung cancer resection finds that cardiovascular risk assessment should be the first step before a potential lung resection, considering that most of these patients are old, smokers and have atherosclerosis.

TLDR
The specific application of perioperative ultrasound imaging that would benefit thoracic anesthesia is identified and intraoperative transesophageal echocardiography is the ideal monitoring tool in complex surgical procedures and rescue scenarios.
Anesthesia for Lung Resection and Pleural Surgery
TLDR
Advancement in surgical techniques and instrumentation has led to increased interest in thoracoscopic especially VATS procedures, which has gained popularity in lung resection and pleural surgeries as well.

Intraoperative Tidal Volume as a Risk Factor for Respiratory Failure after Pneumonectomy
TLDR
Mechanical ventilation with large intraoperative VT is associated with increased risk of postpneumonectomy respiratory failure and the interaction between larger VT and fluid administration was significant.

Risk Factors for Acute Lung Injury After Thoracic Surgery for Lung Cancer
TLDR
Two clinical forms of postthoracotomy ALI are described: 1) delayed-onset ALI triggered by intercurrent complications and 2) an early form of ALI amenable to risk-reducing strategies, including preoperative alcohol abstinence, lung-protective ventilatory modes, and limited fluid intake.
Surgery of non-small cell lung cancer in the elderly
TLDR
Implementing preoperative cardiologic studies and redefining selective respiratory criteria specifically could dramatically improve results in elderly patients affected by non-small cell lung cancer, due to the aging of the general population.
