Anesthesia for pediatric patients undergoing thoracic surgery continues to be distinctive due to differing anatomical and physiological characteristics compared to adults. Adequate preoperative preparation, appropriate tool selection for providing one-lung ventilation, perioperative pain management, and a multidisciplinary approach can ensure higher quality postoperative care. In this review, the perioperative anesthesia management for pediatric patients undergoing thoracic surgery will be discussed, starting from the preoperative preparation phase. Additionally, the issues related to the application and management of one-lung ventilation will also be assessed.
