Paediatric Thoracic Conditions and Treatments

Involves diseases or injuries to the area of the body between the neck and the abdomen


  • Lung infection (pneumonia) causing collection of fluid or pus in the chest (parapneumonic effusion and empyema) may require Video assisted Thoracoscopic surgery to clear the pus and inflammatory tissues
  • Congenital lung anomaly:
  • CCAM (congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation)
  • Congenital Emphysema
  • Bronchogenic cysts
  • Pulmonary sequestration
  • These abnormalities will most likely require surgery to remove the effected part of lung to enable the “good lung” to expand and to grow, this is performed by the keyhole, thoracoscopic, technique
  • Gastrostomy placement for feeding problems, this can be laparoscopic or endoscopic, and conversion to a button gastrostomy later
  • Hyperhydrosis or sweaty palms – if there is failure of simple measures to control the excessive sweating, and if causes much distress, a quick thoracoscopic surgery is all that is required to completely cure this condition
  • Oesophageal abnormalities such as strictures, duplication etc., need to be assessed and appropriate management undertaken. This may involve surgery
  • Chest wall deformity (pectus excervatum, pectus carinatum), these conditions will need thorough assessment and rarely will require surgery
  • Gastro oesophageal reflux disease (GORD or GERD)- failure of medical management of the reflux or if there was recurrent chest infection or if there were blue or life threatening episodes, a laparoscopic fundoplication is required
  • Bleeding from intestine (heamatemesis, vomiting blood or Per rectal bleeding) – often requires endoscopy
