Background Treatment decisions for the management of bronchiectasis include medical treatment, such as antibiotics, chest physiotherapy, and surgical procedures. Here, we aimed to review the effect of lung resection on longitudinal growth, clinical course of patients depending on annual exacerbation rates, and pulmonary function tests (PFTs) and compare them with the results of only medically treated children with non-cystic fibrosis (non-CF) bronchiectasis.
