Abstract: Intraoperative pneumothorax may complicate surgery by obscuring surgical view and cause cardiorespiratory instability during fundoplication with large hiatus hernia. Proactive intraoperative treatment may reduce conversion and drain insertion and facilitate timely completion of surgery. The authors present effective surgical and anesthetic measures to alleviate pneumothorax, which are helpful for hemodynamic stability and surgical visibility. Pneumothorax can complicate surgery by reducing surgical vision and causing cardiorespiratory instability. There is no requirement for laparoscopic or intercostal drainage. The authors provide various techniques to control intraoperative pneumothorax.
