We experienced one lung anesthesia using Fogarty embolectomy catheter as a bronchial blocker in an infant undergoing thoracotomy for foreign body removal. For the guidance of catheter placement in left mainstem bronchus, C-arm fluoroscopy was used. Size of catheter and its balloon was decided beforehand by measuring the diameter and length of bronchus based on the view obtained from computerized tomography. There was no accidental episode during anesthesia. C-arm fluoroscopy is safe and useful method to decide the position of Fogarty occlusion catheter in an infant.
Key Words: C-arm; Fogarty embolectomy catheter; infant; one lung ventilation
