OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the impact of cervical length and cervical pessary application in congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) treated by the fetoscopic endotracheal occlusion (FETO) procedure. METHODS: The study group consisted of 80 patients with severe CDH treated by FETO. Cervical length measurement was performed by transvaginal ultrasound in...

To study pulmonary hypoplasia (PH) associated with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH), investigators have been employing a fetal rat model based on nitrofen administration to dams. Herein, we aimed to: (1) investigate the validity of the model, and (2) synthesize the main biological pathways implicated in...

Pulmonary hypoplasia secondary to congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is characterized by impaired epithelial homeostasis. Recently, amniotic fluid stem cells (AFSCs) have been shown to promote growth in hypoplastic lungs of rat fetuses with CDH. Herein, we investigated whether CDH hypoplastic lungs mount an endoplasmic reticulum...

Fetal imaging is a burgeoning topic. New advancements in both magnetic resonance imaging and (3D) ultrasound currently allow doctors to diagnose fetal structural abnormalities such as those involved in twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome, gestational diabetes mellitus, pulmonary sequestration and hypoplasia, congenital heart disease, diaphragmatic hernia, ventriculomegaly,...
