Research: “Follow-up of fetuses with congenital diaphragmatic hernia: the Quantitative Lung Index”

Objective

To assess the longitudinal behavior of Quantitative Lung Index (QLI) for the follow-up of fetuses with congenital diaphragmatic hernia.

Study design

Retrospective study of fetuses with isolated left congenital diaphragmatic hernia. The fetuses were assessed by ultrasound at different gestational ages and QLI was retrospectively calculated by means of previous lung-to-head ratio measurements. We used a random effects model (mixed model with repeated measurements) to compare the performance of the QLI in operated and non-operated fetuses throughout pregnancy.
