  Purpose

The purpose of this trial is to determine whether low tidal volume during intraoperative one-lung ventilation could decrease the incidence rate of postoperative acute lung injury compared to "normal" tidal volume.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • cytokines of bronchoalveolar lavage [ Time Frame: 10 minutes before surgery ,at the end of surgery immediately ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    TNF-a,IL-1b,IL-6,IL-8 of BAL will be measured with enzyme-linked immunoassay,all markers will be reported with a unit of pg/ml


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • postoperative hospital days [ Time Frame: after surgery up to the time when patient is discharged or dead,it is an average ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    duration of hospital stay after surgery

  • incidence rate of acute lung injury [ Time Frame: after surgery up to 28 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Diagnosis of acute lung injury is followed the consensus criteria for ALI/ARDS published in "Am J Respir Crit Care Med 1994, 149:818-824".

  • incidence rate of surgical complications [ Time Frame: after surgery up to 28 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    surgical complications include anastomotic fistula, postoperative infection and the patients will be followed until death or discharged

  • inhospital mortality [ Time Frame: after surgery up to 28 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    the number of death in the period of hospital stay

  • Oxygenation Index [ Time Frame: 10 minutes before surgery,at the end of surgery immediately,12h after surgery ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Oxygenation Index=PaO2/FiO2

  • CT scan of chest [ Time Frame: 12 hours after the surgery ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Severity of pulmonary edema will be evaluated by CT scan of chest

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: protective ventilation Other: protective ventilation
set tidal volume of 5ml/kg during one-lung ventilation
Other Name: low tidal volume ventilation
Active Comparator: conventional ventilation Other: conventional ventilation
keep tidal volume at 8ml/kg during one-lung ventilation
Other Name: normal tidal volume ventilation

Detailed Description:

Large tidal volume are known risk factor of acute lung injury.Mechanical ventilation with low tidal volume has been shown to attenuate lung injuries in critically ill patients.Esophagectomy surgery need a relatively long time of one-lung ventilation. A normal tidal volume of two-lung ventilation should be a large one when exerted to one lung. We hypothesized that low tidal volume ventilation during one-lung ventilation could decrease incidence rate of postoperative acute lung injury and mortality.
