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...
In case of CDH, the incomplete development of a part of the diaphragm allows abdominal viscera to herniate into thorax cavity during fetal development and impaired lung and heart developme...
The rationale for fetal therapy in severe congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is to restore adequate lung growth for neonatal survival.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether drainage after prosthetic repair of incisional abdominal hernias increases or decreases complications such as infection, seromas and hema...
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...
Repair of large congenital diaphragmatic hernias (CDHs) is challenging. As primary repair is not always feasible, patches are commonly used. An alternative treatment is split abdominal wall muscle ...
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the impact of congenital heart disease (CHD) on infants with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH).
Congenital diaphragmatic eventration (CDE) is defined as the abnormal elevation of the diaphragm, due to incomplete muscularization of the diaphragm with a thin membranous sheet replacing normal diaph...
Pulmonary hypoplasia, characterized by incomplete alveolar development, remains a major cause of mortality and morbidity in congenital diaphragmatic hernia. Recently demonstrated to differentiate from...
Acquired diaphragmatic hernias are most commonly associated with traumatic thoracic injury and rarely heal spontaneously. Conditions that promote peritoneal seeding, such as endometriosis, are associa...
Protrusion of abdominal structures into the THORAX as a result of embryologic defects in the DIAPHRAGM often present in the neonatal period. It can be isolated, syndromic, nonsyndromic or be a part of chromosome abnormality. Associated pulmonary hypoplasia and PULMONARY HYPERTENSION can further complicate stabilization and surgical intervention.
A congenital abnormality characterized by the elevation of the DIAPHRAGM dome. It is the result of a thinned diaphragmatic muscle and injured PHRENIC NERVE, allowing the intra-abdominal viscera to push the diaphragm upward against the LUNG.
Treatment of diseases with biological materials or biological response modifiers, such as the use of GENES; CELLS; TISSUES; organs; SERUM; VACCINES; and humoral agents.
Protrusion of abdominal structures into the THORAX as a result of congenital or traumatic defects in the respiratory DIAPHRAGM.
The type of DIAPHRAGMATIC HERNIA caused by TRAUMA or injury, usually to the ABDOMEN.
