Abstract

Mortality associated with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is high, and the role of prenatal management continues to evolve. We report a case of a right-sided CDH complicated by fetal hydrops successfully managed with thoracoamniotic shunt placement. Subsequent ultrasounds indicated resolution of hydrops. Despite preterm premature rupture of membrane and preterm delivery at 32 3/7 weeks gestation, the infant survived to hospital discharge at 2.5 months of life. This is the first case of a hydropic right-sided CDH successfully treated with a thoracoamniotic shunt.
