Diaphragmatic hernia detected in fetal life carries a high risk for postnatal demise due to lung underdevelopment. Clinical experience from prospective controlled non-randomized case serie...
Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) occurs when the diaphragm fails to fully fuse and leaves a portal through which abdominal structures can migrate into the thorax. In the more severe c...
Left diaphragmatic hernia detected during fetal life carries a high risk for postnatal lung failure due to lung underdevelopment and pulmonary hypertension. In severe cases, extracorporeal...
Subjects to be enrolled in this study are pregnant women whose unborn baby has been diagnosed with severe congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH). CDH is a birth defect occurring early in pr...
Congenital diaphragmatic hernia is an anatomically simple birth defect in which contents of the fetal abdomen migrate into the chest due to incomplete formation of the diaphragm. Herniatio...
Fetal endoscopic tracheal occlusion (FETO) is offered to fetuses with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) and severe lung hypoplasia to promote lung growth and may secondarily affect left heart grow...
: Minimally invasive fetal therapeutic procedures reduce the morbidity and mortality in monochorionic (MC) twins and in fetuses with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH). MC pregnancies share their b...
Tracheobronchomalacia (TBM) refers to the weakening trachea or the trachea loss of structural integrity of airway cartilaginous structures. It causes tracheal stenosis, resulting in significantly high...
Tracheal bronchus is an ectopic bronchus almost arising from the right side of the tracheal wall above the carina. The incidence of a tracheal bronchus is reported as 0.1 to 3%. We experienced a patie...
Fetal tracheal occlusion (TO) is currently an experimental approach to drive accelerated lung growth. It is stimulated by mechanotransduction that results in increased cellular proliferation and growt...
An inflatable device implanted in the stomach as an adjunct to therapy of morbid obesity. Specific types include the silicone Garren-Edwards Gastric Bubble (GEGB), approved by the FDA in 1985, and the Ballobes Balloon.
The use of balloon CATHETERS to remove emboli by retraction of the balloon that is inflated behind the EMBOLUS.
A balloon-assisted enteroscopy utilizing a flexible endoscope with one overtube balloon control unit.
Widening of a stenosed HEART VALVE by the insertion of a balloon CATHETER into the valve and inflation of the balloon.
