AbstractThis lecture will discuss the risks that are associated with the management of patients with anterior mediastinal masses. A plan for risk stratification and preoperative evaluation of such patients will be developed. The indications and available options for anaesthetic management will also be reviewed. Myths about the perioperative management of such patients will be highlighted, specifically flow-volume spirometry and standby cardiopulmonary bypass.
