Abstract

Pulmonary complications following esophageal cancer surgery are still important problems, even though much progress has been made recently in perioperative managements. Many institutions perform postoperative artificial respiration, namely mechanical ventilatory support, as the most effective measure against pulmonary complications. The present report describes the necessity, the effect and the new system for prophylactic mechanical ventilation.
