Discordant prenatal ultrasound and fetal MRI in CDH: wherein lies the truth?

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.

CONCLUSION: Morgagni hernias are amenable to minimally invasive repair with this simple technique. With large defects, synthetic patches should be used. Recurrences are rare, and morbidity is low. PMID: 31926567 [PubMed - in process]

We report a case of Fryns Syndrome who was incidentally found to have Edward Syndrome as well. Such an extremely rare combination is yet to be reported in medical literature.Also with updated genetic studies, better diagnostics and treatment options coming up in future, there are chances to improve the survivability of these babies. It is prudent to document all such cases to aid in better understanding of the disease process.

To determine: 1) the prevalence of persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPH) and its impact on postnatal outcome in infants with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) undergoing standardized management; 2) correlations between pre- and postnatal indicators and the presence of (refractory) PPH early in life.

Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH) associated with Omphalocele is a rare condition, and only a few case reports are available in the literature. Both conditions are associated with some degree of pulmonary hypoplasia. We hypothesize that the combination of CDH with Omphalocele might be associated with poorer outcomes.

This study was the first to show that the miR-130a-5p/Foxa2 axis played a crucial role in CDH-associated pulmonary hypoplasia. These findings may provide relevant insights into the prenatal diagnosis and prenatal therapy of CDH.

We describe a newborn with fetal aberrant ductus venosus with progressive right ventricular dilation prompting early delivery. Post-natally, the baby had frequent episodes of cyanosis. Echocardiogram during distress showed compression of the inferior vena cava and of the right heart, with significant right to left shunt through patent foramen ovale. Infant underwent successful laparoscopic diaphragmatic hernia repair with resolution in her episodes of cyanosis.
