INTRODUCTION: Although pain facial assessment is routinely performed in term and preterm newborns by the use of facial expression-based tools such as the Neonatal Facial Coding System, the assessment of pain during the intrauterine life has not been extensively explored. OBJECTIVE: Describe for the first time,...

Persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPH) is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in newborns with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH). PPH is characterized by increased vascular resistance and smooth muscle cell (SMC) proliferation, leading to obstructive changes in the pulmonary vasculature. Nitric oxide (NO), generated by...

Objective: To evaluate longitudinal changes in lung size and intrapulmonary artery (IPa) Doppler in fetuses with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) and assess their contribution in predicting neonatal survival. Methods: The observed/expected lung‐to‐head ratio (O/E‐LHR) and IPa‐Pulsatility Index (PI) and Peak Early Diastolic Reversed Flow (PEDRF) were...

Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation procedure (ECMO) has been established in the therapy of respiratory insufficient infants with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH). In CDH newborns, a delay in transfer to an ECMO center is associated with a sharp increase in mortality. Predictive factors for ECMO support are...

Infants with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) are at increased risk of respiratory morbidity from recurrent respiratory tract infections including those from respiratory syncytial virus (RSV). Data from prospective studies on RSV prophylaxis in CDH infants are limited. The objective was to determine the risk of...

The Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Study Group (CDHSG) registry is a multi-institutional tool to track outcomes of patients with CDH. The CDHSG asks surgeons to categorize diaphragmatic defect sizes as type A-D based on published guidelines. The reported size of the defect has been correlated with...
