The impact of tubeless anesthesia versus intubated anesthesia on cerebral oxygen saturation and postoperative cognitive function in patients undergoing video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery: a randomized trial.



In video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS), intubated anesthesia may affect cerebral oxygen balance and postoperative cognitive dysfunction (POCD). To avoid complications associated with intubated anesthesia, tubeless strategies have been proposed in recent years, but its effect on cerebral oxygen balance and POCD is still unclear. This prospective study compared the cerebral oxygen saturation and the incidence of POCD in patients undergoing VATS anesthetized with tubeless anesthesia intubated anesthesia.
