Your baby will be assessed by an occupational therapist if there are any feeding difficulties. The prognosis is always guarded in the first stages of treatment as there are so many variables. There are several indirect signs that lead to diagnosis. If hernias develop, repairing the incisional hernias and using mesh in solid organ transplant recipients are safe methods in experienced hands. The risk is higher following larger abdominal transplant surgery, such as liver OLT or simultaneous pancreas kidney transplantation SPK. Unfortunately, most diaphragmatic hernia are diagnosed postmortem [7].

Note the thymus slightly hypoechogenic than lungs. The combination of CDH and an abdominal wall defect omphalocele or gastroschisis is rare; some babies with this combination have been reported to have a poor prognosis [ 23 ]. Fetuses with a portion of the liver in the chest have a more severe condition. Work has been done to correlate survival rates to ultrasound measurements of the lung volume as compared to the baby's head circumference. If hernias develop, repairing the incisional hernias and using mesh in solid organ transplant recipients are safe methods in experienced hands. Other treatments include inhaled nitric oxide and Heliox, an inhaled helium-oxygen mixture that improves removal of carbon dioxide and eases the work of breathing.

Most babies with CDH will need a breathing tube and may need help from a ventilator for many weeks. Pulmonary agenesis refers to partial or complete absence of lung tissue that is caused by failure of lung bud development. For babies with CDH, a pediatrician is also needed to coordinate care from multiple specialists. This report describes their clinical features, which are unlike those reported previously, and our surgical management.
