Triplegic stroke following air embolism from bronchogenic cyst secondary to barotrauma.

Ann Thorac Surg 2021 Mar 20. Epub 2021 Mar 20.

Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery, Heart and Lung Centre, New Cross Hospital, Wolverhampton, UK.

Emergency medical assistance is rare when concerning air travel. Pulmonary barotrauma during air travel can occur in asymptomatic patients who have underlying intra-parenchymal pulmonary pathology such as bullae or bronchogenic cysts. During aircraft travel, the resultant decrease in pressure during the ascent can lead to expansion of the cyst volume culminating in tears and leakage of air into the surrounding vasculature and thus potential for air embolism.
