Abstract

The management of congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is undergoing continual change and refinement, fuelled by recent advances in this field. Although many studies have documented the benefits of these recent advances but definite recommendations are lacking. Also, injudicious use of some of these strategies may be counterproductive, underscoring the importance of evidence based treatment strategy. This article discusses the utility of the recent advances in the management of CDH.
