One-lung ventilation (OLV) is increasingly performed in thoracic surgeries to prevent soiling from the contralateral lung and provides the surgeon with a better view. Double-lumen endobronchial tubes (DLTs), bronchial blockers (BBs), and single-lumen endobronchial tubes, which have been increasingly used in recent years, are standard methods for lung isolation procedures. However, the size and weight of DLTs can cause trauma to the tracheostomy stoma in patients with tracheostomy; thus, BBs and Fogarty catheters are considered as better options for these patients. In this case study, a new method was used when two separate small-sized tubes were inserted by using a fiberoptic bronchoscope........
