Survivorship of patients with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) has created a unique cohort of children, adolescents and adults with complex medical and surgical needs. Morbidities specific to this disease benefit from multi-specialty care, and the long term follow up of these patients offers a tremendous opportunity for research and collaboration. Herein we aim to offer an overview of the challenges that modern CDH survivors face, and include a risk-stratified algorithm as a general guideline for a multi-specialty follow up program.
