Abstract:   (10660 Views)
Pulmonary alveolar proteinosis (PÂP) is a rare pulmonary disease and is rarer in children in which abnormal accumulation of surfactant in alveoli, causes pulmonary signs and symptoms which gradually progresses to pulmonary fibrosis and respiratory insufficiency. There are some modalities for treatment of PÂP but its only effective treatment method, is whole lung lavage (WLL) under general Ânesthesia and one lung ventilation. Because of some technical difficulties, it is some times impossible to do one lung ventilation in children to perform WLL hence in these situations the only preffered way for WLL is doing it under cardio pulmonary Bypass (ÇPB). Ïn this report we present 2 pediatric cases with PÂP in whom WLL was done successfully under ÇPB for the first time in ÏRÂN.
