Abstract

This report suggests that stabilization of the intrauterine to extrauterine transitional circulation combined with a respiratory care strategy that avoids pulmonary overdistension, takes advantage of inherent biological cardiorespiratory mechanics, and very delayed surgery for congenital diaphragmatic hernia results in improved survival and decreases the need for extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). This retrospective review of a 10-year experience in which the respiratory care strategy, ECMO availability, and technique of surgical repair remained essentially constant describes the evolution of this method of management of congenital diaphragmatic hernia.
