    The death rate from human diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) ranges from 50 to 80%, mainly due to the associated lung hypoplasia. To prevent these irreversible pathological and physical defects, the question of intrauterine surgical intervention arises. The histological changes of the lung tissue after...

    Introduction: Hernia diaphragmatic dome (HCD) affects about one child born alive in 3000. A very early closure defect of the diaphragm by lack of closure of pleuroperitoneal canal is responsible for impaired lung development and physiology. Due to the different pressure between the thorax and...
