Postoperative pneumomediastinum and pneumothorax following orthognathic surgery.
J Oral Maxillofac Surg. 1986 Feb; 44(2):137-41.JO

Abstract

Pneumomediastinum and pneumothorax are rare complications in the postoperative oral and maxillofacial surgery patient. Review of the sequence of events relating to these two life-threatening conditions emphasizes the importance of awareness of the clinical presentation and pathophysiology of these conditions as well as the need for judicious pulmonary physiotherapy in the intubated patient.
