Abstract

Variation in management characterizes treatment of infants with a congenital pulmonary airway malformation (CPAM). This review addresses six clinically applicable questions using available evidence to provide recommendations for the treatment of these patients. Questions regarding the management of a pediatric patient with a CPAM were generated. English language articles published between 1960 and 2014 were compiled after searching Medline and OvidSP. The articles were divided by subject area and by the question asked, then reviewed and included if they specifically addressed the proposed question. 1040 articles were identified on initial search. After screening abstracts per eligibility criteria, 130 articles were used to answer the proposed questions. Based on the available literature, resection of an asymptomatic CPAM is controversial, and when performed is usually completed within the first six months of life. Lobectomy remains the standard resection method for CPAM, and can be performed thoracoscopically or via thoracotomy. There is no consensus regarding a monitoring protocol for observing asymptomatic lesions, although at least one chest computerized tomogram (CT) should be performed postnatally for lesion characterization. An antenatally identified CPAM can be evaluated with MRI if fetal intervention is being considered, but is not required for the fetus with a lesion not at risk for hydrops. Prenatal consultation should be offered for infants with CPAM and encouraged for those infants in whom characteristics indicate risk of hydrops. Very few articles provided definitive recommendations for care of the patient with a CPAM and none reported Level I or II evidence. Based on available information, CPAMs are usually resected early in life if at all. A prenatally diagnosed congenital lung lesion should be evaluated postnatally with CT, and prenatal counseling should be undertaken in patients at risk for hydrops.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 4. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 25 January 2019.
All research outputs
#3,681,413
of 13,272,830 outputs
Outputs from Pediatric Surgery International
#67
of 741 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#87,942
of 267,786 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Pediatric Surgery International
#2
of 22 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 13,272,830 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 71st percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 741 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.1. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 90% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 267,786 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 66% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 22 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 90% of its contemporaries.
