RESEARCH: “Prognostic value of the oxygenation index to predict survival and timing of surgery in infants with congenital diaphragmatic hernia.”

AIMS: To compare the mean oxygenation index on day1 (MOId1) with the best OI on day1 (BOId1) in predicting 30-day mortality in congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH). In addition, to determine …


RESEARCH: “Development of the Pediatric Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation Prediction Model for Risk-Adjusting Mortality.”

OBJECTIVES: To develop a prognostic model for predicting mortality at time of extracorporeal membrane oxygenation initiation for children which is important for determining center-specific risk-adjusted outcomes. DESIGN: Multivariable logistic regression …


RESEARCH: “Long tail balloon as a new approach for fetoscopic tracheal occlusion for a treatment of severe congenital diaphragmatic hernia.”

Severe congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) remains a significant challenge for neonatal specialists. In order to reduce complications during extraction of the surgical balloon after fetoscopic tracheal occlusion (FETO) CDH, we …
