This condition can be caused by significant negative intrathoracic pressure generated by large inspiratory effort against acute upper airway obstruction. Postoperative NPPE is rare but potentially life-threatening if not recognized and treated promptly. This article describes a patient who developed postoperative NPPE following a laparoscopic appendectomy.
