The spectrum of congenital malformations of the lung at a rural hospital
Keywords:CPAM (Congenital pulmonary airway malformation), Pulmonary sequestration, Lobectomy, CLE (Congenital lobar emphysema) , Lung resection, bronchogenic cyst, CCAM (Congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation), CTM (Congenital thoracic malformations) , Extra-lobar, Intra-lobar, Posterolateral thoracotomy, lobectomy
Background: Congenital malformations of lung, such as congenital lobar emphysema, cystic adenomatoid malformation, bronchial cyst, pulmonary sequestration are of rare occurrence. However, our hospital being in a rural area attracts a large number of patients with complex malformations.
Method: This retrospective analysis is done to evaluate diagnostic accuracy, safety and efficacy and outcomes of open lung resections at a rural hospital.
Results: 16 children with congenital lung malformation underwent open resection in a rural hospital, with no mortality and minimal morbidity, no complications and more than 24 months follow-up.
Conclusion: Open lung resections are found to be safe, effective in a rural setting also.
