Abstract

We report a case of congenital tracheooesophageal fistula repair in which the anaesthetic management was complicated by intraoperative hypoxaemia coinciding with the surgical step of separation of the parietal pleura from the chest wall. On retrospective evaluation, intraoperative accidental endofistular intubation secondary to the pressure transmitted during surgical manipulation was reasoned out to be the most likely cause.
