Outcome of Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia: A Single Center Experience
Keywords:Congenital diaphragmatic hernia, Newborn, Outcome, Factors, Survival, Developing country
Background: Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is a complex malformation with a challenging perioperative care. The outcome is still not very impressive in developing countries despite its remarkable improvement in developed countries.
Methods: We analyzed outcomes, and factors associated with morbidity and mortality of 120 newborns with CDH, managed at our institution.
Results: The overall survival was 73.4%. Chromosomal aberrations, pneumothorax within 24 hours, left ventricular hypoplasia, biventricular dysfunction, fetal lung to head ratio (LHR)
Conclusion: This is the largest series of a retrospective cohort study of CDH reported in India. We have briefly reviewed the topic and the management guidelines along with prognostic markers derived from this study.
