Persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn (PPHN) is the most common neonatal form and mostly reversible after a few days with improvement of the underlying pulmonary condition. When pulmonary hypertension (PH) persists despite adequate treatment, the severity of parenchymal lung disease should be assessed by chest CT. Pulmonary vein stenosis may need to be ruled out by cardiac catheterisation and lung biopsy, and genetic workup is necessary when alveolar capillary dysplasia is suspected. In PPHN, optimisation of the cardiopulmonary situation including surfactant therapy should aim for preductal SpO2between 91% and 95% and severe cases without post-tricuspid-unrestrictive shunt may receive prostaglandin E1 to maintain ductal patency in right heart failure...

BACKGROUND: Congenital obstructive anomalies of the trachea present unique challenges in reconstruction and perioperative airway management. Complications include anastomotic breakdown, leak and granulation formation related to the complexity of the repair, and difficulties with perioperative airway management. We describe our technique of elective intraoperative and postoperative extracorporeal support to improve surgical exposure and postoperative healing. METHODS: We have performed complex tracheal reconstructions in 4 newborns (2...
