Pai, Sher-Lu MD; Bailey, Joshua C. MD

Case Reports: Case Report

We describe the perioperative management of a patient requiring removal of a 56.7-kg ovarian cystadenoma, highlighting our techniques in managing the changes in the patient’s respiratory, vascular, renal, and gastrointestinal systems due to the large mass. An appreciation of the unique physiologic and anatomical changes in patients with large abdominal masses allows for appropriate precautions in the perioperative period.
