5 Possible Causes for Lung Hypoplasia in Those with Diaphragmatic Hernia

  • Tricuspid Valve Disease

    The degrees of pulmonary hypoplasia and pulmonary artery muscularization were assessed and were compared with those in lungs from four controls and four patients with diaphragmatic[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] hernias.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Lung and body weight ratios and radial alveolar counts, which reflect pulmonary hypoplasia and immaturity, were significantly decreased only in patients with diaphragmatic[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Mediastinal Hernia
