An abdominal hernia with an external bulge in the GROIN region. It can be classified by the location of herniation. Indirect inguinal hernias occur through the internal inguinal ring. Direct inguinal hernias occur through defects in the ABDOMINAL WALL (transversalis fascia) in Hesselbach's triangle. The former type is commonly seen in children and young adults; the latter in adults.

Prenatal sonographic features of spondylocostal dysostosis and diaphragmatic hernia in the first trimester. (1/457)

Spondylocostal dysostosis is a congenital disorder characterized by multiple malformations of the vertebrae and ribs. We describe the sonographic features of an affected fetus at 12 and 14 weeks of gestation. The fetus had thoracic scoliosis, multiple vertebral and rib malformations and a grossly dilated stomach that had herniated into the chest through a left-sided diaphragmatic hernia. The stomach spanned the whole length of the fetal trunk.  (+info)

Enhanced expression of vascular endothelial growth factor in lungs of newborn infants with congenital diaphragmatic hernia and pulmonary hypertension. (2/457)

BACKGROUND: Pulmonary hypoplasia accompanied by pulmonary hypertension resistant to treatment is an important feature of congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH). The pathogenesis of the pulmonary vascular abnormalities in CDH remains to be elucidated at the molecular level. Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), an endothelial cell specific mitogen, is known to play a role in pulmonary angiogenesis and vascular remodelling but there are no data on VEGF expression in patients with CDH. METHODS: Necroscopic lung specimens from 21 patients with CDH with lung hypoplasia and from seven age matched control newborn infants without lung hypoplasia were processed for immunohistochemical analysis using affinity purified anti-human VEGF antibodies. All the cases of CDH had pulmonary hypoplasia, indicated by a lung/body weight index of 200 microm) and small (<200 microm) pulmonary arteries, the most intense staining being in the medial smooth muscle cells of the small pulmonary arteries. Endothelial cells were positive for VEGF staining in patients with CDH but not in controls. CONCLUSIONS: This is the first study of VEGF expression in newborn infants with CDH. Increased levels of VEGF, especially in the small, pressure regulating pulmonary arteries, point to a potential role in vascular remodelling. This may reflect an unsuccessful attempt by the developing fetus to increase the pulmonary vascular bed in the hypoplastic lungs to alleviate the associated pulmonary hypertension.  (+info)

Vitamin A decreases the incidence and severity of nitrofen-induced congenital diaphragmatic hernia in rats. (3/457)

Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is a major cause of refractory respiratory failure in the newborn. Pulmonary hypoplasia often limits survival. Vitamin A (Vit A) is an important signal for lung growth. We hypothesized that antenatal treatment with Vit A would stimulate lung growth and decrease mortality in experimental CDH induced in rats by ingestion of the herbicide nitrofen (2, 4-dichlorophenyl-p-nitrophenyl ether). Nitrofen was administered to pregnant rats on day 12 of gestation (term 22 days). Rats were assigned to five groups: three groups received one dose of oral antenatal Vit A (15,000 IU) before (day 10), concomitant with (day 12), or after (day 14) nitrofen administration; one group received only nitrofen; and a control group received vehicle (olive oil). The incidence of CDH was markedly lower in all groups receiving Vit A (day 10, 44%; day 12, 20%; and day 14, 40%) compared with the nitrofen-treated group (84%; P < 0.05). The 72-h survival was higher in all 3 Vit A-treated groups (day 10, 40%; day 12, 58%; and day 14, 70%) compared with the nitrofen-treated group (16%; P < 0.05). Lung-to-body weight ratio and radial saccular count were significantly increased by Vit A. Antenatal treatment with Vit A lowers the incidence and severity of experimental CDH and increases lung growth and maturation.  (+info)

Fetal tracheal occlusion in the rat model of nitrofen-induced congenital diaphragmatic hernia. (4/457)

Prenatal tracheal occlusion (TO) consistently accelerates lung growth in the sheep model of congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH). However, significant variability in lung growth has been observed in early clinical trials of TO. We hypothesized that lung hypoplasia created at relatively late stages of lung development may not be equivalent to human CDH-induced lung hypoplasia, which begins early in gestation. To test this hypothesis, we performed TO in the rat model of nitrofen-induced CDH. Left-sided CDH was induced by administering 100 mg of nitrofen to timed pregnant rats on day 9 of gestation. On day 19 of gestation, four to five fetuses per dam underwent surgical ligation of the trachea. At death (day 21.5), lungs from non-CDH (non-CDH group), left-CDH (CDH group), and trachea-occluded left-CDH fetuses (CDH-TO group) were harvested and compared by weight, DNA and protein content, and stereological morphometry. Wet and dry lung weight-to-body weight ratio, total lung DNA and protein contents, the volume of lung parenchyma, and the total saccular surface area of the CDH-TO group were significantly increased relative to the CDH group and were either greater than or comparable to the non-CDH controls. We conclude that TO accelerates lung growth and increases lung parenchyma in an early-onset model of CDH-induced lung hypoplasia.  (+info)

Detrimental effects of standard medical therapy in congenital diaphragmatic hernia. (5/457)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the impact of a nonstandard ventilation strategy on survival in congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH). BACKGROUND: Despite recent advances, including nitric oxide, CDH remains an unsolved problem with a mortality rate of 35% to 50%. Hyperventilation and alkalization remain common therapies. METHODS: In 1992, the authors prospectively abandoned hyperventilation and alkalization. Patients are lightly sedated and ventilated with the lowest pressure providing adequate chest movement, and the rate is set to patient comfort. Nitric oxide and extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) are reserved for life-threatening instability. Surgical repair is delayed 1 to 5 days. Sixty consecutive patients are compared with 29 previous patients treated with hyperventilation and alkalization, 13 before and 16 after the availability of ECMO. RESULTS: Overall, 47 of 60 patients (78%) in study era 3 survived compared with 2 of 13 (15%) in the hyperventilation era and 7 of 16 (44%) in the hyperventilation/ECMO era (p < 0.0001). The disease severity and the incidence of associated anomalies did not differ between groups. To compare management strategies, patients who had treatment withheld because of lethal associated conditions were then removed from analysis. Peak inspiratory pressure and arterial pH were lower (p < 0.0001) and Paco2 was higher (p < 0.05) in era 3 than in the previous eras. The rate of pneumothorax (1.9%) decreased (p < 0.0001). In era 3, survival was 47 of 53 (89%) treated patients, and 23 of 25 inborn patients with isolated CDH survived (92%). CONCLUSIONS: Nonstandard ventilatory support of patients with CDH has led to significantly improved survival rates. This study sets a survival benchmark and strongly suggests the negative effects of hyperventilation and alkalization.  (+info)

Congenital diaphragmatic hernia: ultrasonic measurement of fetal lungs to predict pulmonary hypoplasia. (6/457)

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to assess the value of biometric lung measurements for the prediction of severe fetal pulmonary hypoplasia in congenital diaphragmatic hernia and to determine whether a correlation between lung measurements and autopsy findings or neonatal outcome could be established. DESIGN: Prospective study, between 1991 and 1997. SUBJECTS: Nineteen fetuses with congenital diaphragmatic hernia. METHODS: In addition to standard biometry, sonographic measurement of the transverse thoracic diameter, sagittal thoracic diameter, fetal lung diameters at the level of the four-chamber view and lung/thoracic circumference ratio were performed. These were compared with the standard curves defined by Merz and colleagues. Autopsy examinations were performed to determine lung weight, lung weight/body weight ratio and radial alveolar count. RESULTS: Five fetuses (26%) were terminated before 24 weeks of gestation. All of these fetuses had lung measurement values below the 5th centile. Eleven of 14 fetuses (78.6%) with pulmonary hypoplasia diagnosed after 24 weeks of gestation died postnatally. The mortality rate was 70% (7/10) in the fetuses without associated anomalies. The sonographic diagnosis of fetal pulmonary hypoplasia was made in all fetuses who died postnatally. All fetuses with a lung diameter/thoracic circumference ratio below 0.09 died. Three fetuses, which had values within the normal range, survived. In contrast, measurements of the bony thorax (transverse and sagittal thoracic diameters, thoracic circumference) did not provide an indication of the presence of fetal pulmonary hypoplasia. Pulmonary hypoplasia was confirmed at autopsy in all fetuses on the basis of lung weight, lung/body weight ratio or radial alveolar count. Concomitant with pulmonary hypoplasia was polyhydramnios in ten fetuses (71.4%), mediastinal shift in 11 fetuses (78.6%), intrathoracic herniated stomach in six fetuses (42.9%) and associated malformations in four fetuses (28.6%). Postnatal mortality for these conditions was 80%, 78.6%, 100% and 100%, respectively. Postnatal mortality was 75%, 70% and 100% in the fetuses with an isolated diaphragmatic hernia. CONCLUSION: The results of this investigation suggest that the assessment of fetal lung diameter and the use of the lung diameter/thoracic circumference ratio are further useful prognostic parameters in the management of congenital diaphragmatic hernia.  (+info)

Dual-hit hypothesis explains pulmonary hypoplasia in the nitrofen model of congenital diaphragmatic hernia. (8/457)

Pulmonary hypoplasia associated with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) remains a major therapeutic problem. Moreover, the pathogenesis of pulmonary hypoplasia in case of CDH is controversial. In particular, little is known about early lung development in this anomaly. To investigate lung development separate from diaphragm development we used an in vitro modification of the 2, 4-dichlorophenyl-p-nitrophenylether (Nitrofen) animal model for CDH. This enabled us to investigate the direct effects of Nitrofen on early lung development and branching morphogenesis in an organotypic explant system without the influence of impaired diaphragm development. Epithelial cell differentiation of the lung explants was assessed using surfactant protein-C and Clara cell secretory protein-10 mRNA expression as markers. Furthermore, cell proliferation and apoptosis were investigated. Our results indicate that Nitrofen negatively influences branching morphogenesis of the lung. Initial lung anlage formation is not affected. In addition, epithelial cell differentiation and cell proliferation are attenuated in lungs exposed to Nitrofen. These data indicate that Nitrofen interferes with early lung development before and separate from (aberrant) diaphragm development. Therefore, we postulate the dual-hit hypothesis, which explains pulmonary hypoplasia in CDH by two insults, one affecting both lungs before diaphragm development and one affecting the ipsilateral lung after defective diaphragm development.  (+info)

Discussion. The diaphragm develops at weeks 4-12 in embryogenesis and consists of four parts, namely the pleuroperitoneal folds, the transverse septum, the oesophageal mesentery and the muscular body wall. A posterior (Bochdalek) hernia represents a developmental defect in the pleuroperitoneal folds or failure of fusion between the pleuroperitoneal folds and the transverse septum.1 It was first described by Victor Alexander Bochdalek in 1867 and is the most common type of congenital diaphragmatic hernia.2 Left-sided Bochdalek hernias are more common than right-sided Bochdalek hernias, although patients may also present with bilateral Bochdalek hernias (which are very rare).3. Bochdalek hernias are usually detected in the neonatal period as the hernia causes compression of the lung parenchyma, which may cause respiratory distress and cyanosis.4 Bochdalek hernias were found to be asymptomatic in 14% of patients (usually in females with right-sided hernias) in a review conducted by Brown et al.3 ...
A Bochdalek hernia is one of two forms of a congenital diaphragmatic hernia, the other form being Morgagni hernia. A Bochdalek hernia is a congenital abnormality in which an opening exists in the infants diaphragm, allowing normally intra-abdominal organs (particularly the stomach and intestines) to protrude into the thoracic cavity. In the majority of patients, the affected lung will be deformed, and the resulting lung compression can be life-threatening. Bochdalek hernias occur more commonly on the posterior left side (85%, versus right side 15%). This type of hernia was first studied and documented by the Czech Anatomist and Pathologist, Vincenz Alexander Bochdalek (1801-1883). In normal Bochdalek hernia cases, the symptoms are often observable simultaneously with the babys birth. A few of the symptoms of a Bochdalek Hernia include difficulty breathing, fast respiration and increased heart rate. Also, if the baby appears to have cyanosis (blue-tinted skin) this can also be a sign. Another ...

Intrapericardial diaphragmatic hernias are reported very rarely. Those of congenital origin are most often diagnosed in neonates, and those caused by indirect blunt trauma occur chiefly in adults. The latter type can be asymptomatic; however, the results of a computed tomographic scan can yield a definitive diagnosis. Once discovered, these hernias should be corrected to avoid severe sequelae such as bowel strangulation and necrosis, peritonitis, mediastinitis, and cardiac tamponade.. We report the case of a 78-year-old woman who presented for elective ascending aortic aneurysm repair. Computed tomographic angiograms incidentally revealed a large intrapericardial diaphragmatic hernia, which had probably developed years earlier, after a traffic accident. The patient underwent a median sternotomy and repair of the intrapericardial diaphragmatic hernia with use of a bovine pericardial patch, followed by ascending aortic and hemiarch repair, aortic valve repair, and aorto-right coronary artery ...

At 31 weeks of gestation, the fetus had significant ascites and high-pressure intrathoracic fluid accumulation, hydrops fetalis, deviation of the mediastinum, and tamponade-like physiology that compromised cardiac function. Ultrasound-guided fetal thoracoamniotic and peritoneal amniotic shunt placement markedly improved the fetal cardiac function and resolved the hydrops. The patient delivered ...

AU - Oguma, Eiji. AU - Omata, Kanako. AU - Kawashima, Hiroshi. AU - Yamada, Yoshitake. PY - 2019/6. Y1 - 2019/6. N2 - Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is one of the most common major congenital anomalies. The presence of a hernia sac is associated with additional benefits in terms of improved neonatal survival. Here, we report a case of CDH with a hernia sac detected via postnatal ultrasonography. Our literature search did not find other cases where CDH with hernia sac was found by postnatal ultrasound in neonates. In prenatal imaging, the diagnosis of CDH with a hernia sac is challenging. In our case, the meniscus of the thymus was clearly noted, and smooth convexity between the hernia contents and thymus was detected. Although evaluation of the presence of a hernia sac with postnatal ultrasonography might ...
A few of the symptoms of a Bochdalek Hernia include difficulty breathing, fast respiration and increased heart rate. Also, if the baby appears to have cyanosis blue-tinted skin this can also be a sign. If the baby has a Bochdalek Hernia it may appear that one side of the chest cavity is larger than the other and or the abdomen seems to be scaphoid caved in.. During fetal development, the diaphragm is formed between the seventh and tenth week. Also, during this time, the esophagus, stomach, and intestines are formed.. Therefore, a Bochdalek hernia forms either from malformation of the diaphragm, or the intestines become locked into the chest cavity during the construction of the diaphragm. Although these are some factors that contribute to a Bochdalek hernia, it does not take all variables into account.. Bochdalek hernias, along with Morgagni hernias, are both multifactor conditions, meaning that there are many reasons and multiple variables that contribute to the malformations.. For example, in ...
BACKGROUND:. Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is a rare congenital anomaly with a mortality of ~27%. The Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Study Group (CDHSG) developed a simple postnatal clinical prediction rule to predict mortality in newborns with CDH. Our aim for this study is to externally validate the CDHSG rule in the European population and to improve its prediction of mortality by adding prenatal variables.. METHODS:. We performed a European multicenter retrospective cohort study and included all newborns diagnosed with unilateral CDH who were born between 2008 and 2015. Newborns born from November 2011 onward were included for the external validation of the rule (n = 343). To improve the prediction rule, we included all patients born between 2008 and 2015 (n = 620) with prenatally diagnosed CDH and collected pre- and postnatal variables. We build a logistic regression model and performed bootstrap resampling and computed calibration plots.. RESULTS:. With our validation data set, ...

However, there has been little standardization of these practices or of the physiologic limits that define GV. We sought to ...
No clear evidence about when to perform surgery to correct congenital diaphragmatic hernia. Congenital diaphragmatic hernia is a rare but often fatal condition. It occurs when a newborn babys diaphragm has a defect in it that allows abdominal organs (such as the stomach or liver) to enter the chest and displace the lung and heart. Surgery can correct the defect, but damage to the lung may be so severe that the baby still cannot survive. It has been thought that correcting the defect was so urgent that emergency surgery should be performed within the first 24 hours following birth, but more recent thinking suggests that a period of stabilization before surgery could help the lung develop. Only two trials have been done, and these provide no clear evidence to support delayed surgery over emergency surgery.. ...

Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is associated high mortality and morbidity, mainly in those cases with severe forms where there are extremely reduced lung volumes, liver herniation and decreased abnormal pulmonary vascularization. Fetal endoscopic tracheal occlusion performed between 26 and 30 weeks (standard FETO) has been shown to increase fetal pulmonary size and vascularity, and to improve infant survival in isolated severe CDH. Fetal pulmonary response followed FETO can be used to predict outcome and is dependent on the size of the fetal lung prior to the procedure.. We hypothesize that performing an earlier FETO, between 22-24 weeks, fetuses with severe form of CDH will have a better fetal pulmonary response and higher chance of surviving. ...

David A Santos, MD, Nina N Bowman, DO, Clifford C Eke, MD, FACS. Kaiser Permanente Southern California Fontana/Ontario Medical Center.. Background:. Bochdalek hernias are rare entities in adults and usually present as bowel obstruction. Asymptomatic hernias, as diagnosed on computed tomography, have an incidence of 0.17% in the general population. The optimal repair of a symptomatic hernia is unknown, however primary suture repair and mesh repair with biologic and synthetic mesh have all been described. Given the rarity of symptomatic hernias, long term data on recurrent Bochdalek hernias is scarce.. Methods:. The patient presented is a 22 year old man who presented with symptoms of large bowel obstruction. Computed tomography was utilized in diagnosing incarcerated colon in the thoracic cavity. Techniques for positioning and exposure similar to laparoscopic splenectomy were utilized. Advanced laparoscopic techniques barrowed from hiatal hernia repair and ventral hernia repair were adapted. ...
BACKGROUND/PURPOSE:The aim of this study was to determine the gene and protein levels of atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) in the heart of nitrofen-induced congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) in rats and to evaluate the effect of antenatal dexamethazone (Dex) treatment. METHODS: CDH model was induced in pregnant rats after administration of 100 mg of nitrofen on day 9.5 of gestation (term, day 22). Dexamethazone (Dex, 0.25 mg/kg) was given by intraperitoneal injection on days 18.5 and 19.5 of gestation. Cesarean section was performed on day 21 of gestation. The fetuses were divided into 3 groups: group I, control (n = 10); group II, nitrofen-induced CDH (n = 10); group III, nitrofen-induced CDH with antenatal Dex treatment (n = 10). ANP protein was measured using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) technique. Reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) was performed to evaluate the relative amount of atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) mRNA expression. RESULTS: There was a ...

PURPOSE: The aim of the study was to determine clinical indications for performing minimally invasive surgery (MIS) with acceptable results by reviewing our experience in congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) repair and comparing outcomes of MIS with open surgery. METHODS: Medical records of patients who underwent CDH repair were reviewed retrospectively between January 2008 and December 2012, and outcomes were compared between MIS and open repair of CDH. RESULTS: From 2008 to 2012, 35 patients were operated on for CDH. Among these patients, 20 patients underwent open surgery, and 15 patients underwent MIS. Patients with delayed presentations (60.0% [9/15] in the MIS group vs. 20.0% [4/20] in the open surgery group; P = 0.015) and small diaphragmatic defect less than 3 cm (80.0% [12/15] in the MIS group vs. 0.0% [0/20] in the open surgery group; P < 0.001) were more frequently in the MIS group than the open surgery group.

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this article is to review the current options of prenatal diagnosis in congential diaphragmatic hernia (CDH). SUBJECT: Systematic review. SETTING: Institute for the Care of Mother and Child, 3rd Medical Faculty, Prague. SUBJECT AND METHOD: Review of recent published data. CONCLUSION: The basic method for prenatal diagnosis of congenital diaphragmatic hernia is 2D ultrasonography: measurement of lung-to-head ratio (LHR), observed to expected lung to head ratio (observed to expected LHR - O/E LHR), localization of diaphragmatic defect, assessment of liver position and presence of associated anomalies (negative prognostic factors ...
A veterinarian might suspect that a pet has a diaphragmatic hernia based on its history, clinical signs, hearing muffled lung and heart sounds through a stethoscope, and feeling a somewhat empty abdomen on palpation; but if the hernia is mild, the patient may appear to be normal. X-rays and sometimes an ultrasound are necessary to make a definitive diagnosis.. Serious hernias require surgical repair, and this is often no easy task. Many general practitioners will rightfully refer these cases to surgical specialists after the patients condition has stabilized. If the cost of surgery is prohibitive and the pet is minimally affected by the hernia, taking a wait and see approach is sometimes a viable option. Cats, in particular, are remarkably adaptable. In fact, Ive diagnosed diaphragmatic hernias in cats years after the likely causative trauma occurred. Im usually taking X-rays for a completely unrelated problem when I discover it.. Because diaphragmatic hernias can be so unobtrusive (and for ...

The clinical course of patients with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is often complicated by lung hypoplasia and pulmonary hypertension. The implementation of gentle forms of ventilation and extracorporal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) led to improved survival rates, but patients with CDH are still at risk of developing pulmonary sequelae including chronic lung disease (CLD).. We performed a retrospective analysis of all neonates with CDH treated at our institution between 2002 and 2007. CLD was defined as the need for supplemental oxygen or mechanical ventilation for at least 28 days after birth, and its severity was graded according to the respiratory support after 56 day postnatal age or discharge.. 9.3% of all 259 neonates with CDH presented with severe concomitant disease or ongoing asphyxia, did not receive maximum therapy and died within the first days of life.. 123 of the remaining 235 patients did not need ECMO therapy. All 123 patients survived and 44 developed CLD (35.8%).. 112 ...
Most congenital diaphragmatic hernias occur through the posterolateral diaphragm (Bochdalek). Bochdalek hernias are thought to arise from malformation of the pleuroperitoneal fold or failure or delay of the pleuroperitoneal fold and septum transversum to fuse properly with intercostal muscles. Most congenital diaphragmatic hernias are diagnosed at antenatally by US but some are not diagnosed until birth or later with respiratory distress. Most Bochdalek hernias occur on the left side.. CDH is associated with respiratory distress. Although most believe that herniation of abdominal viscera causes pulmonary hypoplasia due to compression during a critical period of lung development, abnormal pulmonary vasculature with a hypermuscular vessel wall and increased vasoreactivity resulting in pulmonary hypertension also contributes.. Associated anomalies are seen in up to half of patients with CDH. These include cardiac defects (VSD, ASD, and Tetrolgy of Fallot), limb anomalies, genetic defects (Trisomy ...

A retrospective review of 44 cases of congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) treated at the Cardiothoracic Surgical Unit, University College Hospital (UCH), Ibadan, between August 1976 and May 1999, was carried out. Thirty (68.2 per cent) of the 44 were males and 14 (13.8 per cent) were females. The patients were analysed in three groups: 31 patients who underwent surgery were analysed as two groups: inborn (born within UCH), 10 patients, and outborn (born elsewhere), 21 patients; the third group consisted of 13 patients who were not operated upon. All the inborn patients and 18 (85.7 per cent) of the outborn had left-sided defects; the remaining three of the outborn had right-sided defects. Eleven (84.6 per cent) of those who didnt undergo surgery, had left-sided defects while the remaining 15.4 per cent had bilateral defects. The three groups had comparable gestational ages (inborn vs outborn, p, 0.05; inborn vs unoperated, p, 0.05; outborn vs unoperated, p,0.05) and birth weights ( inborn vs ...

Sliding hiatus hernia This is the most common type of hernia and accounts for eight out of ten hiatus hernia cases. It gets its name from the fact that this type of hernia slides in and out of the chest area.. The top part of the stomach and the oesophageal sphincter (ring-shaped muscle) pushes up through the hiatus into the chest. The problem with this is that it prevents the sphincter muscle from closing properly which then allows stomach acid to flow up through the oesophagus.. Rolling hiatus hernia This is less common than the sliding hiatus hernia and only affects around two out of ten hiatus hernia cases. Part of the stomach pushes up into the chest via the hiatus (opening in the diaphragm) but the oesophageal sphincter remains below the diaphragm. Another name for this is a para-oesophageal hernia.. ...

Traumatic diaphragmatic injuries in infants and children are uncommon. Late presentation of such an injury is well recognised in adults but is exceptionally rare in children. Because of the increased compliance of the thoracic cage in children, rupture of the diaphragm can occur without signs of external injury. Morbidity and mortality can be minimized by a high index of suspicion, prompt recognition, and surgical repair of even the smallest diaphragmatic injury. We present a case of delayed presentation of traumatic diagphragmatic hernia in a boy of 10 months. ...
Researchers from The Johns Hopkins Center for Fetal Therapy report new evidence that fetuses with severe congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH), a rare but life-threatening, lung-damaging condition, experience a significantly high rate of success for the fetal treatment known as FETO, if they and their mothers receive coordinated and highly experienced care in the same expert setting.. A report on the findings was published online, on Feb. 6, in the journal Obstetrics & Gynecology.. FETO - fetoscopic tracheal balloon occlusion - is a minimally invasive procedure in which a fetoscope is inserted through the abdominal wall into the uterus and then into the mouth of the fetus to place an inflatable balloon, to temporarily block the fetal trachea. The blockage allows lung fluids to build up behind the balloon, encouraging expansion of the airways and lung growth. The procedure improves the odds that fetuses with severe CDH acquire sufficient lung function after birth to lead a normal life.. The ...
Meaning: Vascular access devices may be more difficult to place in obese patients, and may be one of the contributing factors to the reduced number of devices. Patients with obesity, especially those in increased BMI categories, although less likely to have a more permanent device placed, were more likely to keep those devices in place upon discharge. This may be due to concerns about being able to regain access should the patient return to the PICU. Obese patients may also have had increased complications because their total device time was also longer..

What types of hernias do pets get? Diaphragmatic - Can occur in any age of pet; some pets are born with these types of hernias, others develop them after an injury. With Diaphragmatic hernias, the internal organs enter the chest cavity making breathing difficult. Hiatal - Occurs when part of the stomach forces itself into the diaphragm at the point where the esophagus meets the stomach. Hiatal hernias can be caused by trauma or can be congenital. Inguinal - These happen when a pets inner rear leg fixes to the body wall, near the groin area. Depending on the size of the hernia, segments of the bladder, intestine, and uterus have been known to get caught, creating a life-threatening problem. Inguinal hernias are congenital and usually affect female pets, namely those pregnant and middle-aged. These are usually surgically fixed immediately. Perineal - Usually occurs when pelvic muscles tear, allowing abdominal muscles to enter the area bordering the anus. While it is merely believed that some ...

Lobar Emphysema 1 (Differential Diagnosis RDS). Repeated chest radiographs in a newborn with progressive respiratory distress syndrome. Left picture: 3rd day of life. The upper right hemithorax is larger than its left counterpart. Notice the large intervals between the ribs. Center picture: 10th day of life. The difference between left and right becomes more pronounced; an absent lung structure in the right upper and middle hemithorax is recognizable. Right picture: 21st day of life: There is no heart shadow in the right hemithorax; an increase of the zone with absent lung structure is obvious and partially so in the left hemithorax, too. In contrast to the sudden onset of respiratory distress syndrome in most patients with congenital diaphragmatic hernia, respiratory distress syndrome or the signs of the respiratory system appear slowly during the neonatal period in many of the pathologies with a valve mechanism. In this case the pathology is a lobar emphysema of the right upper lobe. The lobe ...
BACKGROUND This study reports our 28 months experience with minimal access surgery (MAS) in children. MATERIALS AND METHODS This was a review of all children who underwent MAS between December 2004 and March 2007 at the Departments of Paediatric Surgery, Seth Gordhandas Sunderdas Medical College (GSMC) and King Edward the VII Memorial (KEM) Hospital, India. Results and observations were tabulated and analysed, comparing with observations by various other authors regarding variety of indications such as, operative time, hospital stay, conversion rate, complications, safety, and feasibility of MAS in neonates, in the appropriate operative groups. RESULTS A total of 199 procedures were performed in 193 children aged between 10 days and 12 years (average age: 5.7 years).

Surgical Conditions. Newer hernia repair techniques involve the use of a minimal access incision and placement a mesh plug to achieve the best outcomes for hernia repairs in the long term. Recovery from these repairs is rapid and offers advantages over laparoscopic repairs. Laparoscopic repairs can be undertaken for other abdominal hernias with excellent outcomes.. A hernia is a weakness or defect in the abdominal wall. It may be present from birth, or develop over a period of time. If the defect is large enough, abdominal contents such as the bowels, may protrude through the defect causing a lump or bulge felt by the patient. Hernias develop at certain sites which have a natural tendency to be weak; the groin, umbilicus (belly button), and previous surgical incisions. Signs and Symptoms. ...
A hernia occurs when one part of your body or part of an organ protrudes through a gap or opening into another part of the body. Many types of hernias occur in the abdominal area. Hiatal hernias, also known as diaphragmatic hernias, form at the opening (hiatus) in the diaphragm where the food tube (esophagus) joins the stomach.

One more critical complication that can occur from hiatal hernias is deserving of special mention due to its life threatening possibilities. Although it is rare, occasionally a fixed hiatal hernia can cause a part of the stomach to be cut off from the blood supply and become very painful and potentially deadly. This condition is called a strangulated hiatal hernia. Symptoms that may tip you off to this complication include severe chest pain, difficulty swallowing and breathing, and obstruction of the esophagus. If you have a strangulated hiatal hernia, it is a true medical emergency and you should seek immediate care. Symptoms are often mistaken for those of a heart attack.. What Treatments Are Available for Hiatal Hernias?. First a word about the drugs that are usually passed out to help with the symptoms of hiatal hernia or GERD. While they may provide temporary relief to some degree, they have some serious side effects including making the acid reflux WORSE in the long run by stimulating ...

Tetrasomy for the short arm of chromosome 12 (Pallister-Killian syndrome) is an uncommon mosaic aneuploidy, which may present in the prenatal period with an ultrasonographically detected fetal abnormalities or following karyotyping for maternal age and other causes. In this syndrome the chromosome abnormalities, isochromosome is present in amniocyte with a much greater percentage than fetal lymphocyte. The most consistent reported prenatal ultrasound findings for tetrasomy 12p include polyhydramnios with short femurs and a diaphragmatic hernia.

Hiatus hernia. Illustration of a sectioned view through the stomach (bottom), diaphragm (band across centre), and the lower part of the oesophagus (gullet, upper left), in a case of a hiatus hernia. This is where the upper portion of the stomach protrudes from the abdominal cavity into the chest cavity through the existing hole in the diaphragm where the oesophagus connects to the stomach. This type of hernia is relatively common. Surgery is only required in severe cases or where complications develop. Complications include gastro-oesophageal reflux of gastric acid into the oesophagus, causing inflammation and ulceration of the oesophagus. - Stock Image C029/0652
In a healthy individual, the esophagus should pass through the diaphragm (the flat, dome-shaped muscle that separates the chest from the contents of the abdomen) and into the stomach. The opening leading from the diaphragm to the esophagus is known as a hiatus, which gives this syndrome its name.. Many factors may contribute to hiatal hernia, including injury, obesity, thyroid dysfunction, and age. In some people, a congenital shortening of the GI tract may be a causative variable. In such cases, hiatal hernia may develop later in life as the result of a stressor such as pregnancy or extreme physical exertion. Many cases of hiatal hernia go undiagnosed or are wrongly diagnosed as heartburn. If the symptoms are worse when lying down or after eating certain foods like peppermint and chocolate, the issue is most likely a hiatal hernia, and should be diagnosed by a gastroenterologist.. ...

Well, to make a long story short, this time we found more patients waiting than we could possibly care for in the time at hand. However, things went smoothly and by the Lords enabling we were able to operate on 120 patients, about 50 of whom had double or triple operations, this time in 16 working days. This time also there was one death, a very old man who got along well after an operation for double hernia and elephantiasis but about two weeks later developed dysentery, which proved too much for him. A larger proportion of the hernias this time were comparatively early than at previous times, but a few that we turned down were so large that they contained more of the abdominal contents than the abdomen itself. One woman carried her hernia in a cloth that was slung around her neck and shoulder, somewhat as they would carry a baby, the kind that one book speaks of as having forfeited its right of domicile. The largest elephantiasis (scrotal tumor) this time weighed 78 pounds after removal and ...
A 57-year old woman who presented with a six-hour history of severe epigastic pain radiating through to the back, associated with nausea and a desire to vomit - she was unable to vomit. The plain chest radiograph showed a massive air bubble in the chest and a diagnosis was made of a gastric volvulus. A nasogastric tube was passed. This lead to the passage of a large volume of air and immediate symptomatic relief. A contrast study showed that most of the stomach was in the right chest and the nasogastric tube could not be passsed below the diaphragm.. The patient underwent an attempted laparoscopic reduction and repair of the volvulus. Whilst the stomach could be pulled back into the abdominal cavity laparoscopically, repair of the diaphragmatic defect was not possible because the large left lobe of the liver prohibited an adequate display of the esophageal hiatus. The patient was obese and had a lot of fatty infiltration of the liver. The procedure was completed by open surgery. The esophageal ...
Hiatal hernia (also called hiatus hernia and paraesophageal hernia) occurs when part of the stomach protrudes into the thoracic cavity through the esophageal hiatus of the diaphragm. Embryologic development of the diaphragm is a complex process; a number of defects result in a variety of possible congenital hernias through the diaphragm.
TY - JOUR. T1 - [Progress in and outcomes of neonatal surgery over the past 50 years]. AU - Taguchi, Tomoaki. AU - Nagata, Kouji. AU - Kinoshita, Yoshiaki. AU - Esumi, Genshiro. PY - 2014/11/1. Y1 - 2014/11/1. N2 - The Japanese Society of Pediatric Surgeons has performed a nationwide survey of neonatal surgery every 5 years during the 50 years since its foundation. The number of neonatal surgical cases has increased 5-fold during those 50 years, while the mortality rate has decreased from 60% to 15% for the main life-threatening diseases (such as esophageal atresia, diaphragmatic hernia, omphalocele, and gastroschisis). Currently, most neonatal patients who undergo surgery for severe cardiac or chromosomal anomalies survive. Therefore, pediatric surgeons are aware of the need for cosmetic considerations. Endoscopic surgical procedures and incisions using natural skin creases have been developed to achieve good cosmetic results and improve patients quality of life. On the other hand, severe ...
