Tip 22a: congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH)

Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) occurs in 1: 3 – 4,000 live births. Nearly 70% are diagnosed antenatally and about 30% of total cases die antenatally as a result of miscarriage or termination.

85% of congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is left-sided.
