Different methods have been described for lung isolation in patients for thoracic surgery with tracheotomies. It is important to consider whether it is a fresh stoma or a chronic tracheostomy. We would like to describe the use of endobronchial blocker directed fibreoptically in a fresh tracheostomy as a simple and safe technique for one-lung ventilation without causing any trauma to the fresh stoma site.
