ABSTRACT

Early tracheal extubation has been safely performed after large operative procedures, questioning the need for routine postoperative ventilation. Because immediate postoperative tracheal extubation of liver transplanted patients has not been previously reported in Greece, we announce the first case report. We describe the anesthetic technique and the criteria we applied for early extubation, referring to the literature. Finally we conclude that immediate postoperative tracheal extubation is safe for selected liver transplanted patients.
