Scimitar syndrome is a form of a partially or totally right pulmonary venous return to the inferior vena cava, which may associate variably right lung hypoplasia, right pulmonary artery hypoplasia, pulmonary sequestration together with the presence of aortopulmonary collaterals from the descending aorta towards the...

Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is a severe birth defect that is often accompanied by other congenital anomalies. Previous exome sequencing studies for CDH have supported a role of de novo damaging variants but did not identify any recurrently mutated genes. To investigate further the genetics of CDH,...

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...
