Robotic-assisted thoracoscopic surgeries have recently provided a technical advance for overcoming the many limitations of conventional thoracoscopic surgeries and have gained widespread popularity in a clinical setting. Carbon dioxide (CO2) insufflation to a unilateral thorax or bilateral thoraxes is frequently performed to gain a better operative field of view, although its intraoperative complications have not yet been discussed in detail. Here we report two cases of sudden onset of difficult ventilation due to a migrated double-lumen endotracheal tube (DLT) during robotic thymectomy. We highlight the difficulty in the readjustment of the migrated DLT during robotic thymectomy with continuing CO2 insufflation........
