Post-operative complications can include:
- Ulnar Neuropathy (the ulnar nerve is exposed during procedures at the elbow, and so the most vulnerable to compression).
- Corneal Abrasions (excruciating pain with each blink of the eye).
- Myocardial infarction
- Exacerbation of existing airway problems.
- Laryngospasm (and, if untreated, negative pressure pulmonary edema)
