Abstract

Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is the most common indication for extra-corporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) for neonatal respiratory failure. CDH management is evolving with advanced prenatal diagnostic imaging modalities. The risk profiles of infants receiving ECMO for CDH are shifting towards higher risk. Many clinicians are developing and following clinical practice guidelines to standardize and optimize the care of CDH neonates. Despite these efforts, there are significant differences in the practice patterns among ECMO centers as to how and when they choose to initiate ECMO for CDH, when they believe repair is safe, as well as many other nuances that are based on center experience or style. The purpose of this report is to summarize our current understanding of the new and recent developments regarding management of infants with CDH managed with ECMO.
