    Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is a congenital disorder, complicated by pulmonary hypoplasia (PH) and pulmonary hypertension. Hypoplastic lungs have fewer and smaller airspaces than normal, with thicker interalveolar septa; the adventitia and media of pulmonary arteries are thickened, and...

    Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is associated with high mortality and morbidity due to pulmonary hypoplasia (PH) and persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPH). Bilateral CDH is extremely rare with poor prognosis. It is usually accepted that PH in CDH is due to the herniation of abdominal...
