Abstract

Acute airway obstruction in the postoperative period following cervical spine fusion using BMP is a complication of its use. Due to the degree of obstruction and difficulty with intubation postoperatively, a clinical awareness is necessary to effectively manage these patients. Collaborative efforts between the spine surgeon, anesthesia and the otolaryngologist are required for management of the complications that occur after surgery.
