Abstract: Correct selection of indications, careful preoperative preparation with eradication of infection, meticulous performance of surgical and anesthetic techniques, early detection and management of complications, and long-term follow-up including pulmonary rehabilitation are essential parameters to reduce morbidity and mortality rates in childhood pneumonectomy. Better compensatory lung growth and improvement in development after the operation will facilitate better health and improved life quality in children.

“…This study included various etiology of destroyed lung and concluded that the morbidity and mortality rates of pneumonectomy are acceptable for selected and well-prepared children [ 4 ]. In another evaluation, a study of pre- and postoperative characteristics of 20 children who underwent pneumonectomy for different etiologies showed that correct selection of indications, intensive preoperative rehabilitation with eradication of infection, careful execution of anesthetic and surgical procedures, early management of complications, and long-term support including pulmonary physiotherapy are essential conditions to decrease morbidity and mortality rates of pneumonectomy in child [ 9 ]. These risk factors for mortality in children following pneumonectomy were evaluated by Verónica Giubergia et al.…”

“…No cases of pneumonectomy for pulmonary lymphangiectasia have been previously reported in a newborn. Yalcin et al (20) recently reported their experience of pneumonectomies of childhood involved a case of congenital pulmonary lymphangiectasia. But their patients were 8 yr old (0.5 to 17 yr) on a median age.…”
