Abstract
Pulmonary embolism is a fatal complication of major operation. But early detection of pulmonary thromboembolism during general anesthesia is not easy because clinical manifestations of pulmonary thromboembolism are nonspecific during general anesthesia. So the prevention of pulmonary thromboembolism is important for the high risk patients. We experienced a case of pulmonary thromboembolism which occurred in an old female patient with femur fracture immediately after leg elevation following induction of general anesthesia.
Key Words: general anesthesia, orthopedic, pulmonary thromboembolism
