Abstract
Although shoulder arthroscopy has provided a major advantage in the diagnosis and treatment of shoulder injuries, it is not free of complications. Several clinical reports have described patients who suffered life-threatening airway obstruction during arthroscopic shoulder surgery performed under regional or general anesthesia. We report a case of severe neck edema threatening airway after shoulder arthroscopy under general anesthesia.
Key Words: airway obstruction, edema, general anesthesia, shoulder arthroscopy
