Abstract submission

The call for abstracts is now closed. Thank you for your submissions!

As attempted in all the previous editions of the CDH International Symposium, the 2024 edition will adopt a global, longitudinal and transversal approach to diaphragmatic hernia, given that this rare but complex disease involves a wide variety of genetic, cellular and physiological mechanisms, and clinically requires the coordination and the joint expertise of several medical specialties, without forgetting the place of the patient and the family in the long, individual CDH journey.

To contribute to highlighting all of these multiple aspects and the latest work carried out in this field, we welcome abstracts of work related to CDH carried out as part of fundamental research, translational, observational, epidemiological and/or clinical studies, as well as in the humanities and social sciences.
All research (and types of research conducted) may relate to any stage of the disease: from onset/discovery, to management of the disease in the short medium or long term (from fetal to adulthood).

Here are the main themes that will constitute of the red thread of the 2024 edition of the conference:

  • Fetus with CDH
  • The diaphragm
  • The dysfunctional heart
  • The lungs
  • The brain
  • Nutrition and feeding
  • Non-isolated CDH
  • Personalized family support

If you wish to submit an abstract to present your work, you will be invited to indicate the theme among the above that best fits your work.
Note: As the purpose of the meeting is to share a broad spectrum of CDH-focused investigation, submission of previously presented work is acceptable. Further, work that is concomitantly being submitted to another meeting is acceptable. Work that is published (in print) at the time of abstract submission should NOT be submitted.

After this date, the scientific committee will review all submitted abstracts and select a few for inclusion in the plenary sessions of the conference program. The authors of the other submitted abstracts will be invited to make a short presentation during dedicated poster sessions.
