Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH) occurs when the diaphragm does not fully close during fetal development. This allows abdominal organs to move or herniate into the chest which then inhibits lung growth. Children with CDH are born with smaller than normal lungs and less blood vessels causing pulmonary hypertension. CDH requires specialized care, often including ECMO which is the highest form of life support. The cause of CDH is still unknown though it effects 1 in 2500 births and has a survival rate of approximately 70%.
