There is little consensus on optimal management for congenital diaphragmatic hernia extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (CDH ECMO) patients. Meaningful comparisons of the various approaches have been limited due to the low number of cases in institutions. In addition, the multidisciplinary reliance and rigid institutional framework of ECMO serve to further limit exposure to alternative practices. The goal of this study is to survey the international pediatric surgery community to describe the current practice trends.
