Foregut Duplication Cysts
Foregut duplication cysts originate from the foetal foregut and can be oesophageal duplications or bronchogenic cyst. The majority of patients are diagnosed antenatally and are asymptomatic at birth. A postnatal CT scan will confirm the diagnosis. All foregut duplications should be removed as they will eventually cause symptoms. If the patient is asymptomatic, thoracic cysts are best excised thoracoscopically.
