RESEARCH: “Fetal tracheal occlusion in mice: a novel transuterine method”

Fetal tracheal occlusion (TO) is an emerging surgical therapy in congenital diaphragmatic hernia that improves the fetal lung growth. Different animal models of congenital diaphragmatic hernia and TO present advantages and disadvantages regarding ethical issues, cost, surgical difficulty, size, survival rates, and available genetic tools. We developed a minimally invasive murine transuterine TO model, which will be useful in defining how TO impacts lung molecular biology, cellular processes, and overall lung physiology.
