Expereinces w/cystic hygromas

  1. Wanted to hear experiences with these kids since we send
    them out. What have you seen as far as survival? Do you think the biggest challenge is the airway or hydrops?

    I have never seen or had the opportunity to take care of a baby with this problem. I've read about it though.

    I've only seen it once, and the baby did well. It was diagnosed prenatally, and mom delivered at a tertiary care center. Hydrops was not an issue with this baby, and he did well following surgery.
