Abstract

Pulmonary hypoplasia in the neonate is frequently fatal. This article reports two neonates with a clinical diagnosis of pulmonary hypoplasia complicated by persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPHN). Though both infants were progressively worsening while receiving conventional mechanical ventilatory support, they survived when treated with high-frequency jet ventilation.
