Karolinska Institutet.ORCID iD: 0000-0002-8987-9909
2008 (English)In: Journal of Pediatric Surgery, ISSN 0022-3468, E-ISSN 1531-5037, Vol. 43, no 10, 1928-1931 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Increased pulmonary vascular resistance causing pulmonary artery hypertension is a major problem in the treatment of congenital diaphragmatic hernia with a strong association to mortality. We here report a patient with intractable pulmonary hypertension at 4 weeks of age unresponsive to conventional treatment. After administration of the platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) receptor antagonist imatinib, pulmonary artery pressure gradually decreased to acceptable levels and the patient's clinical condition gradually improved.
