Özet

As a basic skill, endotracheal intubation, performed throughout the world by health care professionals is a relatively safe and effective maneuver. However, this technique is not risk free and could lead to many serious complications. We wanted to report that in a patient with double lumen tube intubation, airway trauma can cause late symptoms. We thought that such complications must be published to share experiences.
