Congenital diaphragmatic hernia is a severe birth defect, with a prevalence of 1:2000 to 1:3000 live births where a defect in the diaphragm results in, herniation of the abdominal contents...
The objective of this study is to evaluate the use of 2 different types of biosynthetic material for the repair of congenital diaphragmatic hernia. The research question is: what is the be...
The purpose of this study is to generate information about the hereditary basis of Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH) and abnormal lung development. Our long-term goal, is to identify w...
Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is a congenital anomaly associated with a high risk of mortality and need for life-saving interventions such as extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (E...
The primary objective of this study is to determine the medical and neurodevelopmental outcomes of congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) survivors at school-age (4-6 years) follow-up. It ...
We report a case of late presentation of congenital diaphragmatic hernia in a child who presented to the emergency department with abdominal pain and respiratory distress. The usual and unusual presen...
Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is a defect in diaphragm which usually presents with severe respiratory distress in neonatal period.
The objective of this study was to examine laterality as a predictor of outcomes among fetuses with prenatally diagnosed congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH).
The timing of surgical repair in patients with congenital diaphragmatic hernia has been a controversial topic over the years, and there is still no agreement as to whether immediate repair or late sur...
Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is an important contributor of morbidity and mortality in infants with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH). Treatment options are limited, but sildenafil might improve ox...
A HERNIA due to an imperfect closure or weakness of the umbilical ring. It appears as a skin-covered protrusion at the UMBILICUS during crying, coughing, or straining. The hernia generally consists of OMENTUM or SMALL INTESTINE. The vast majority of umbilical hernias are congenital but can be acquired due to severe abdominal distention.
The type of DIAPHRAGMATIC HERNIA caused by TRAUMA or injury, usually to the ABDOMEN.
Blood of the fetus. Exchange of nutrients and waste between the fetal and maternal blood occurs via the PLACENTA. The cord blood is blood contained in the umbilical vessels (UMBILICAL CORD) at the time of delivery.
A syndrome of multiple defects characterized primarily by umbilical hernia (HERNIA, UMBILICAL); MACROGLOSSIA; and GIGANTISM; and secondarily by visceromegaly; HYPOGLYCEMIA; and ear abnormalities.
Venous vessels in the umbilical cord. They carry oxygenated, nutrient-rich blood from the mother to the FETUS via the PLACENTA. In humans, there is normally one umbilical vein.
