Operation required for Congenital Cystic Adenomatoid Malformation of The Lung

If an operation is needed, the exact timing of the operation depends on how badly the baby is affected and how difficult the breathing is. The more difficulty there is with breathing, the quicker the operation is done.

In some cases this results in the operation being performed in the first 24 - 48 hours of life, and in others the operation is deferred for 2 - 3 weeks or more. In these cases the baby will have no symptoms and can be cared for usually at home for some weeks before planned surgery is undertaken. At present, even if the baby has no symptoms, we would recommend removal of the cyst as infections can occur as the baby grows causing the baby to become quite unwell.
