Abstract

In an 8 yr review of congenital diaphragmatic defects in children, the various forms of these defects, their main clinical and diagnostic features and data on frequency, site and sex are discussed. The problem of mortality is examined in connection with the onset of symptoms and the main causes. The highest rate of mortality is seen in newborns, with symptoms arising in the first 24 hr of life. Clinical recognition and emergency management are discussed, and the importance of adequate pre and postoperative care is stressed.
