Retrograde flow in the aortic arch identifies inadequate cardiac output in neonates with congenital heart disease. We present a left congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) infant with retrograde flow in the arch that normalized after CDH repair. We hypothesize transient inadequacy of the left heart; prostaglandins might play a pivotal role.
