Abstract

Thoracoscopic excision of a Type 0 congenital pulmonary airway malformations (CPAM) is rarely described in literature. A 1-day-old female neonate presented with prenatal diagnosis of right lung CPAM. Mother had undergone fetoscopic thoracoamniotic shunt placement which led to radiographic resolution of large CPAM cyst. Soon after delivery, the patient developed multiple premature ventricular contractions (PVCs) that were thought to be secondary to retained shunts. Thoracoscopic excision of CPAM performed.
