To prevent the severe prognosis of pulmonary hypoplasia in congenital diaphragmatic hernia, the authors developed a new method of ventilation, using a modulated mixture of helium and oxygen. Associated with a leptanalgesia (Chlorpromazine-Morphine), the authors observed with this method two good results. Efficiency of this technique has been confirmed by X-rays and successive pulmonary scintigraphies (Xenon 133).
