    Abstract

    The results of lobar resection to treat severe localised bronchiectasis in six children with cystic fibrosis are described. Sustained clinical improvements occurred in children undergoing this surgical approach to treatment. Detailed assessment and intensive preoperative and postoperative medical treatment are essential to a favourable outcome in carefully selected patients.
