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.
-A cystic mass which forms within the lung tissue.
- When the diaphragm does not form properly the contents of the abdomen develop inside the chest cavity, preventing the lungs from properly developing.
-A problem with the structure of the heart present at birth.
-When the left side of the heart is severely underdeveloped.
-When a structural problem occurs during lung development, causing a mass to form.
-A buildup of fluid in the chest that compresses the lungs.
