1. Traumatic diaphragmatic herniation presenting as a delayed tension faecopneumothorax.
Match Strength: 13.650
This article reports an unusual case of delayed presentation of a tension faecopneumothorax after traumatic injury to the diaphragm 5 years previously. Three important clinical lessons are highlighted: (a) for suspected tension pneumothorax, if a considerable quantity of serous fluid is drained in addition to air, a communication with the peritoneal cavity should be considered; (b) spontaneous tension pneumothorax is an extremely rare condition and other causes should be kept in mind; and (c) in the presence of a tension pneumothorax and diaphragmatic hernia, the contents of the visceral sac ...

2. Treatment evolution in high-risk congenital diaphragmatic hernia: ten years' experience with diaphragmatic agenesis.
Match Strength: 11.908
OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to evaluate the impact of newer therapies on the highest risk patients with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH), those with agenesis of the diaphragm. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: CDH remains a significant cause of neonatal mortality. Many novel therapeutic interventions have been used in these infants. Those children with large defects or agenesis of the diaphragm have the highest mortality and morbidity. METHODS: Twenty centers from 5 countries collected data prospectively on all liveborn infants with CDH over a 10-year period. The treatment and ... Read More »

3. Chest wall/diaphragmatic complications.
Match Strength: 11.399
This article discusses the prevention and management of chest wall and diaphragmatic complications after extrapleural pneumonectomy, the prevention of thoracoplasty scoliosis, the complications after chest wall resection, and the presentation, prevention, and management of chest wall hernia. Appropriate preoperative assessment and patient selection, meticulous attention to detail intraoperatively, and diligent postoperative observation and care are needed to prevent these events.

4. Abnormal vascular tone in infants and children with lung hypoplasia: Findings from cardiac catheterization and the response to chronic therapy.
Match Strength: 4.941
OBJECTIVE: We describe four cases of chronic pulmonary hypertension in infants and children with chronic lung disease and pulmonary hypoplasia due to severe congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) or congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation (CCAM). We report data from cardiac catheterization under various conditions: baseline respiratory support and room air, hyperoxic and inhaled nitric oxide challenge. We further report cardiac catheterization measures after chronic pulmonary vasodilator therapy with sildenafil alone or a combination of sildenafil and inhaled nitric oxide (three patients). ...
