Research: Current Practices in the Management of CDH Patients Requiring Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation: Results of an International Survey of Pediatric Surgeons

There is little consensus on optimal management for congenital diaphragmatic hernia extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (CDH ECMO) patients.
