Pulmonary complications significantly promote perioperative morbidity. Both regional analgesia, and techniques that minimize surgical trauma, may ameliorate postoperative abnormalities in pulmonary mechanics. However, it remains to be seen whether the beneficial effects on mechanics achieved by such techniques significantly reduce the incidence of pulmonary complications, and improve patient outcome.
