  Purpose

The neonatal mortality rate in cases with severe isolated congenital diaphragmatic hernia is higher than 90% due to severe pulmonary hypoplasia. Many studies have suggested that fetal tracheal occlusion may increase lung volumes and therefore reducing the risk for severe pulmonary hypoplasia and by consequence the risk for neonatal death.

The main objective of the present study is to evaluate if fetal tracheal occlusion improves survival rate in those cases that are followed in our hospital, by conducing a randomized trial.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Survival rate [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

    Noenatal survival rate which includes percentage of newborns that survive up to 30 days of life.

    Infant survival rate which includes percentage of newborns that survive up to one year of life. Outcome measurement will be assessed up to one year after birth.



Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Postnatal pulmonary arterial hypertension [ Time Frame: 30 days of life ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Postnatal pulmonary arterial hypertension will be assessed up to 30 days of life according to the echocardiographic findings.


Estimated Enrollment: 36
Study Start Date: May 2008
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2011
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2011 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Fetal intervention
Composed of fetuses that undergo to fetal tracheal occlusion at 26-28 weeks.
Procedure: Fetal tracheal occlusion
Insertion of a detachable balloon inside fetal trachea by percutaneous fetoscopy
Other Name: FETO, TO
No Intervention: Control
Composed of fetuses that do not undergo fetal intervention

Detailed Description:

Fetuses will be randomly allocated in two groups: 1. for fetal tracheal occlusion at 26-28 weeks (FETO group) or 2. Postnatal therapy only (Control)

Main outcome: Survival rate in both groups Second outcomes: Postnatal diagnosis of severe pulmonary arterial hypertension, percentage of newborns in each group that will have clinical conditions for neonatal surgical repair of the diaphragmatic defect, fetal lung responses (increase of fetal lung size), maternal and obstetrical complications (prematurity, preterm rupture of the membranes, maternal hemorrhage and infection).
