Gastrointestinal duplications.
TLDR
Prenatal diagnosis should lead to expeditious postnatal investigation and treatment before the onset of symptoms or complications of gastrointestinal duplication in patients with atypical Crohn's disease or when the diagnosis of an intraabdominal mass is unclear. Expand
Asymptomatic congenital lung malformations.
TLDR
The management of small noncommunicating extralobar sequestrations is more controversial; it is known that these lesions can remain asymptomatic throughout life but complications may develop and they are sometimes difficult to differentiate from neuroblastoma. Expand
Outcome of the Prenatally Diagnosed Congenital Cystic Adenomatoid Lung Malformation: A Canadian Experience
TLDR
CCAM can lead to fetal or neonatal demise from hydrops, lung hypoplasia, prematurity or severe associated malformations, but has a good prognosis in the majority of cases. Expand
Ten years of experience with third and fourth branchial remnants.
TLDR
The diagnosis and management of pyriform sinus anomalies are challenging and the portion of thyroid involved in the fistula must be excised en bloc with the inflammatory mass, and the tract should be ligated at the level of the pharynx to minimize recurrence. Expand
Primary fetal hydrothorax: natural history and management.
TLDR
Primary fetal hydrothorax may resolve or progress to hydrops, necessitating close follow-up with ultrasound, and the fetus with large effusions and hydrops has a poor prognosis, and thoracic decompression with a thoracoamniotic shunt may prove life saving. Expand
Management and outcome of patients with combined vaginal septum, bifid uterus, and ipsilateral renal agenesis (Herlyn-Werner-Wunderlich syndrome).
TLDR
One of the largest reviews of HWWS in pediatric patients to date finds good long-term outcome occurs after vaginal septectomy, and this diagnosis should be suspected in females with a pelvic mass and ipsilateral renal agenesis. Expand
The management of asymptomatic congenital lung malformations.
TLDR
Since lung resection will be required sooner or later for CPAM and ILS, it is best not to wait for complications to occur, and recommend surgery at 3 to 6 months of life at the latest, to allow compensatory lung growth to occur. Expand
The multiple facets of pulmonary sequestration.
TLDR
The proportion of sequestrations that were atypical or associated with other entities, such as congenital cystic adenomatoid malformations, communicating bronchopulmonary foregut malformation, bronchogenic cyst, and scimitar syndrome, was identified. Expand
A new prognostic classification for esophageal atresia.
TLDR
This new "Montreal classification" can simplify and improve the stratification of patients with esophageal atresia and reflects the more favorable outcome of low birth weight neonates. Expand
Foregut duplications: is there an advantage to thoracoscopic resection?
TLDR
Foregut duplications may present in a variety of ways and locations and Thoracoscopy is advantageous for isolated intrathoracic FDs. Expand
