Abstract

Background Purpose: Surgical treatment of childhood bronchiectasis has not been discussed extensively because of decline in prevalence and experience with this disease. It remains controversial as to which children would benefit from surgery and surgical points that may affect the outcome. Therefore, a retrospective series was prepared to evaluate the results of surgical treatment of bronchiectasis in children.
