Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Pulmonary sequestration is a relatively rare entity comprising a small portion of all congenital pulmonary malformations. Varying clinical techniques have been utilized to manage this disease process including abstaining from surgical intervention, endovascular procedures and operative approaches. We reviewed three case reports with varying presentations, each of which had a favorable outcome with definitive surgical treatment. In conclusion, we recommend that resection should continue to be the standard of care in both adolescent and adult patients with this disease process.
