STUDY OBJECTIVE To review our experience with specific characteristics, indications, and results of pulmonary resection in children with middle lobe/lingula syndrome. DESIGN Retrospective cohort study. SETTING Thoracic Surgery Department, Chest Diseases Hospital, Kuwait. PATIENTS AND INTERVENTION Thirteen children with middle lobe, lingula, or both syndromes were treated with pulmonary resection from January 1995 to December 1999. RESULTS The mean age was 7.5 years (range, 5 to 10 years… Expand
Ten years' experience in surgical treatment of right middle lobe syndrome.
TLDR
Lobectomy of right middle lobe is a good therapeutic option in these patients and due to high prevalence of tuberculosis and hydatid cyst in Middle Eastern countries these two must be considered as causes of middle lobe syndrome. Expand
Chronic atelectasis of the left lower lobe: a clinicopathological condition equivalent to middle lobe syndrome.
TLDR
Chronic atelectasis of the left lower lobe is a clinicopathological condition equivalent to middle lobe syndrome and surgical resection is indicated for bronchiectatic lobe or failure of 2-month intensive medical therapy to resolve lobar atElectasis. Expand
Middle lobe syndrome in children.
TLDR
A simple descriptive study on 11 patients admitted to Masih Daneshvari Hospital during 2000-2007 with the diagnosis of lingula or middle lobe atelectasis and / or recurrent consolidation of middle lobe syndrome finds the most common findings on pulmonary CT-scan were infiltrations and at electasis.

Thoracoscopic lobectomy as a treatment option for persistent middle lobe syndrome in children
TLDR
The aim of the present study was to analyze the minimally invasive approach for children suffering from middle lobe syndrome and report no reports focusing on thoracoscopic lobectomy formiddle lobe syndrome in children. Expand
The role of timely intervention in middle lobe syndrome in children.
TLDR
Timely medical intervention in patients with MLS that includes FOB with BAL prevents bronchiectasis that may be responsible for an ultimately unfavorable outcome. Expand
Infectious Causes of Right Middle Lobe Syndrome.
TLDR
Two case patients with RML syndrome are reported on, one due to infection with Mycobacterium avium complex followed by M asiaticum infection and the other due to allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis. Expand
Middle Lobe Syndrome: A Review of Clinicopathological Features, Diagnosis and Treatment
TLDR
The etiology of the nonobstructive MLS is not completely understood, but inefficient collateral ventilation, infection and inflammation in the middle lobe or lingula are thought to play a role, and bronchiectasis is the most common histological finding. Expand

January 2017, Vol. 24, No. 1 Summary: Right middle lobe (RML) syndrome is defined as recurrent or chronic obstruction or infection of the middle lobe of the right lung. Nonobstructive causes ofExpand
A Comparative Study of Video-Assisted Thoracic Surgery with Thoracotomy for Middle Lobe Syndrome
TLDR
VATS was a feasible and safe method for the surgical treatment of MLS in selected patients when no severe calcified lymph nodes surrounding hilus pulmonis was observed by preoperative chest CT scan. Expand

Outcome after right middle lobe syndrome.
TLDR
Pulmonary function tests, including mean and SEM for vital capacity (VC) and FEV1 and their ratio were significantly lower in patients with ongoing respiratory symptoms than in the control children and in patients without symptoms at follow-up. Expand
Middle lobe syndrome.
TLDR
It now appears that bronchoscopy and, if need be, bronchography should be undertaken to rule out an endobronchial lesion in the middle lobe of the syndrome, with early examination advocated for the older patient at high risk for lung cancer. Expand
Current strategy for surgical management of bronchiectasis.
TLDR
Patients with cylindrical bronchiectasis are good surgical candidates and chronic sinusitis is a risk factor for surgical resection, and complete resection should be done whenever possible. Expand
Middle lobe syndrome: diagnosis and management.
TLDR
The most common presenting symptoms were cough, dyspnea, fever, hemoptysis, and chest pain, and Diagnostic studies included chest roentgenogram, bronchoscopy, and bronchography. Expand
Surgery for bronchiectasis.
TLDR
Surgery of pulmonary bronchiectasis has few complications and markedly improves symptoms in the great majority of patients, especially when complete resection of the disease is achieved, and Pulmonary resection is achieved and does not alter respiratory function. Expand
Bronchiectasis: Causes and management
TLDR
Patients with advanced generalized bronchiectasis should be considered for lung transplantation and the role of surgical therapy has evolved from early curative resection for all patients to a more palliative approach. Expand
Clinical findings in middle lobe syndrome and other processes of pulmonary shrinkage in children (atelectasis syndrome).
TLDR
All cases shared common clinical and morphologic similarities: congenital malformations of the bronchial skeleton, compression, and chronic inflammation produce comparable pulmonary morphology that always includes atelectasis. Expand

TLDR
A segment by segment comparison of 259 segmental bronchi from 70 lobes of 27 lungs in 19 patients was performed and there was agreement between the two modalities in identifying the different types of bronchiectasis. Expand
