Abstract
Minimally invasive parathyroidectomy, a new technique for the surgical management of parathyroid disease, is gaining popularity. The smaller incision in the neck results in better cosmetic results and patient satisfaction. Despite a low incidence of complications, the anesthesiologist should be aware and prepared to manage life saving situations. We describe a case of bilateral tension pneumothoraces during minimally invasive parathyroidectomy.
Key Words: Minimally invasive surgery; Parathyroidectomy; Pneumothorax
