Emergency surgery due to diaphragmatic hernia: case series and review
Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is a congenital abnormality, rare in adults with a frequency of 0.17 –6%. Diaphragmatic rupture is an infrequent consequence of trauma, occurring in about 5% of severe clos...
Prenatal risk assessment of congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) relies on prenatal ultrasound (U/S) and fetal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). When the modalities differ in prognosis, it is unclear which is more reliable.
Conclusions: we propose the description of large sample of pediatric patients with congenital bronchopulmonary malformations, followed from one Center. Chest CT and LTBS are important investigation in congenital airway anomalies.
We sought to determine whether TRASCET could impact congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH).
Conclusion A history of CDH is associated with higher rates of inhaled bronchodilator prescriptions, inhaled steroid prescriptions, and asthma-related physician visits from 0 to 5 years of age compared with age-matched controls. However, this difference resolves by 5 to 10 years of age. [...] Georg Thieme Verlag KG Stuttgart · New YorkArticle in Thieme eJournals: Table of contents | Abstract | Full text
CONCLUSIONS: Considering the severity of this condition, accurate diagnosis and timely surgical treatment is mandatory to reducing morbidity and mortality. KEY WORDS: Bochdalek hernia, Gastric volvulus. PMID: 31702578 [PubMed - in process]
AbstractPurposeThis retrospective cohort study compares the natural history of patients with extralobar sequestrations (ELS) who do not undergo intervention with those who undergo resection to assess the safety of non-operative management.Methods126 patients with pulmonary sequestrations or congenital pulmonary airway malformations born between 1999 and 2016 were identified. 49 patients had ELS on postnatal imaging, but two were excluded for associated congenital diaphragmatic hernia. Demographic and clinical data were retrospectively reviewed, with phone follow-up for non-operative patients with no records for> &thinsp...
Recurrence of congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) was retrospectively evaluated after correction with or without a patch in an institution where tension-free repair is advocated.
Hepatopulmonary fusion (HPF), a rare anomaly associated with right congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH), is characterized by a fibrovascular fusion between herniated liver and lung parenchyma. We aimed to clarify patient characteristics, management strategies, and outcomes in HPF.
ConclusionsCDH survivors frequently have various issues with feeding, which may not be adequately supported or discussed clinically. It is desirable to assist the patients to reliable resources of long-term support, including multidisciplinary team (MDT) approach.
In conclusion, thorough pulmonary auscultation to detect bowel sounds in the thorax increases clinical suspicion of cardiac dextroposition.RésuméNous vous présentons le cas d'une femme de 75 ans présentant une dextroposition cardiaque ayant consulté pour subir une évaluation cardiaque préopératoire en raison d'une dyspnée à l'effort. À l'examen, les bruits du cœur étaient plus facilement audibles à droite, et des bruits intestinaux étaient audibles dans l'hémithorax gauche. L'électrocardiographie a ré...
