The purpose of the study is to investigate the impact of unilateral or bilateral diaphragm plication in a prospective randomised controlled way on symptoms, pulmonary function including gas exchange, respiratory muscle strength, exercise capacity and breathing during sleep in patients with proven uni- or bilateral phrenic nerve paralysis present for at least 1 year without any evidence of spontaneous recovery.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Placebo Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Diaphragm dysfunction is found in 10 to 90% of patients following heart surgery. In current practice diaphragm dysfunction is evaluated by 2D ultrasonography. Tissue Doppler is a validate...
This study aims to assess whether the electrical signal of the diaphragm (diaphragm electromyogram) and the ratio of that to tidal volume (amount of air breathed in and out of the lungs) c...

Inability to prevent a clinical deterioration resulting from a complication of an underlying medical condition or a complication of medical care. It implies that common risk factors for such a complication were not recognized in a timely manner or treated appropriately.
A state of unconsciousness as a complication of diabetes mellitus. It occurs in cases of extreme HYPERGLYCEMIA or extreme HYPOGLYCEMIA as a complication of INSULIN therapy.
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.
The musculofibrous partition that separates the THORACIC CAVITY from the ABDOMINAL CAVITY. Contraction of the diaphragm increases the volume of the thoracic cavity aiding INHALATION.
Soft tissue formed mainly by the pelvic diaphragm, which is composed of the two levator ani and two coccygeus muscles. The pelvic diaphragm lies just below the pelvic aperture (outlet) and separates the pelvic cavity from the PERINEUM. It extends between the PUBIC BONE anteriorly and the COCCYX posteriorly.
