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 ...
The aim is to obtain normal newborn umbilical cord diameters for use it in the evaluation of congenital umbilical hernia.
We reviewed the radiographs of 131 infants with congenital diaphragmatic hernia and report that the umbilical venous catheter usually deviates to the ipsilateral and the endotracheal tube to the contr...
Many infants with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) show brain abnormality on postnatal brain MRI related to severity of CDH, degree of lung hypoplasia, intrathoracic liver, right diaphragmatic he...
The presence of a hernia sac in congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) has been reported to be associated with higher lung volumes and better postnatal outcomes.
Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) occurred in one of the twins is rarely seen. This study aims to describe the clinical features and outcomes of this special CDH.
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.
