Abstract

We reviewed the radiographs of 131 infants with congenital diaphragmatic hernia and report that the umbilical venous catheter usually deviates to the ipsilateral and the endotracheal tube to the contralateral side of the defect. The trachea and the umbilical vein, however, can be found on either side of the midline.
