Respiratory failure secondary to pulmonary hypoplasia is the main cause of death in congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH). Lung growth is regulated by growth factors (GFs), whose imbalances are reported in pathological conditions. We measured amniotic fluid levels of GFs, regulating lung development, in pregnancies with CDH and compared them with normal gestations.

Abstract

Respiratory failure secondary to pulmonary hypoplasia is the main cause of death in congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH). Lung growth is regulated by growth factors (GFs), whose imbalances are reported in pathological conditions. We measured amniotic fluid levels of GFs, regulating lung development, in pregnancies with CDH and compared them with normal gestations.
