The following are some of the conditions which impact the lungs and heart:
A piece of lung tissue that develops without being connected to the airways.
Congenital Cystic Adenomatoid Malformation (CCAM) / Congenital Pulmonary Airway Malformation (CPAM)
A cystic mass which forms within the lung tissue.
Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH)
When the diaphragm does not form properly the contents of the abdomen develop inside the chest cavity, preventing the lungs from properly developing.
When a structural problem occurs during lung development, causing a mass to form.
When there is an abnormal amount of fluid around the lungs
When the lungs are abnormally small, and do not have enough tissue and blood flow to allow the baby to breathe on his or her own.
