Congenital Diaphragmatic hernia management is challenging in any country, but even more so in developing countries. Recently, in many pediatric surgical centers, introduction of minimal invasive surgeries like laparoscopic and thoracoscopic as new and safe procedures, are happening. These methods are used in pediatric surgeries less than in adult surgeries due to risks and benefits of the methods.
