AbstractPurposeThis retrospective cohort study compares the natural history of patients with extralobar sequestrations (ELS) who do not undergo intervention with those who undergo resection to assess the safety of non-operative management.Methods126 patients with pulmonary sequestrations or congenital pulmonary airway malformations born between 1999 and 2016 were identified. 49 patients had ELS on postnatal imaging, but two were excluded for associated congenital diaphragmatic hernia. Demographic and clinical data were retrospectively reviewed, with phone follow-up for non-operative patients with no records for> &thinsp...

In conclusion, thorough pulmonary auscultation to detect bowel sounds in the thorax increases clinical suspicion of cardiac dextroposition.RésuméNous vous présentons le cas d'une femme de 75 ans présentant une dextroposition cardiaque ayant consulté pour subir une évaluation cardiaque préopératoire en raison d'une dyspnée à l'effort. À l'examen, les bruits du cœur étaient plus facilement audibles à droite, et des bruits intestinaux étaient audibles dans l'hémithorax gauche. L'électrocardiographie a ré...
