The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) has issued full guidance to the NHS in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland on Thoracoscopic repair of congenital diaphragmatic hernia in neonates.

  • Description

    Congenital diaphragmatic hernia is a life-threatening condition caused by failure of the diaphragm to form properly during a baby’s development in the womb. This results in the baby’s abdominal organs moving up into the chest cavity, compressing its lungs and heart. In thoracoscopic repair, small incisions are made in the chest to insert surgical instruments, which are then used to move the abdominal organs out of the chest and repair the diaphragm.
