#3
REVIEW
Jay Bhatt, Jeremy D Prager
Stridor, a common presenting sign of respiratory distress in a newborn, has many systemic causes. It may arise from the larynx or the tracheobronchial airway. This article presents the most common pathologic conditions in this anatomic region, with highlights on management.

REVIEW
Jonathan Walsh, Jeffrey Rastatter
Neonatal and infant tracheostomies have been valuable in the care and survival of children over the past century. With the implementation of neonatal and pediatric intensive care units, more infants are surviving conditions that were considered fatal. Neonatal tracheostomy plays a vital role in many of these conditions, with significant implications and association with overall mortality, morbidity, and developmental outcomes. Although the technique has not changed much, there have been significant evolutions in indications, survival, complications, and technological advances...

#5
REVIEW
Alexander P Marston, David R White
The subglottis is a narrow region of the pediatric airway that is exquisitely susceptible to the development of airway stenosis. The incidence of acquired subglottic stenosis in the setting of prolonged intubation has significantly decreased because of improved endotracheal tube management protocols. Advances in otolaryngology interventions, such as balloon dilation and endoscopic cricoid split techniques, may allow the avoidance of tracheostomy in patients with mild to moderate subglottic stenosis. However, patients with severe subglottic stenosis are often tracheostomy dependent...

#6
REVIEW
Lourdes Quintanilla-Dieck, Edward B Penn
Congenital neck masses can be a developmental anomaly of cystic, solid, or vascular origin. They can also constitute neoplasms, including malignancies, although this is rare in the pediatric population. The history and examination can help quickly narrow the differential diagnosis. Imaging also plays an essential role in defining the characteristics and likely cause of neck masses. The most common neck masses in young children are thyroglossal duct cysts, branchial cleft anomalies, and dermoid cysts. Also important to consider in the differential diagnosis are solid tumors, such as teratomas, or vascular lesions, such as hemangiomas...

#7
REVIEW
Roy Rajan, David Eric Tunkel
Congenital nasal deformities can cause nasal obstruction with early respiratory distress. Choanal atresia is characterized by no communication between the nasal cavity and nasopharynx. Pyriform aperture stenosis involves more anterior nasal obstruction with limited intranasal space. Nasal masses such as encephaloceles, gliomas, and dermoids are thought to be related through a skull base defect in utero. Imaging with computed tomography and MRI are helpful in distinguishing lesions and identifying intracranial communication...

REVIEW
Adam B Johnson, Gresham T Richter
Classified by their most prominent vessel type, congenital vascular tumors and malformations are frequently evident neonatally. Although many are identified in the first month of life, management is often delayed due to their slow expansion. Urgent interventions may be necessary in fast-growing, obstructive, destructive, or bleeding anomalies. Treatment is based on the impact on vital structures, impending aesthetic outcome, or functional risks. Frequent and fast-growing hemangiomas and lymphatic malformations are the most commonly treated neonatally...

REVIEW
Louis F Insalaco, Andrew R Scott
Pierre Robin sequence (PRS) is a congenital condition characterized by the presence of micrognathia, glossoptosis, and cleft palate. PRS has varying effects on airway patency and feeding ability and thus has a broad range of management options. The purpose of this article is to describe the nature of the background of the condition and address the previous and current trends in diagnosis and management of PRS.

REVIEW
James D Vargo, Ayesha Hasan, Brian T Andrews
Neonatal skull and head shape anomalies are rare. The most common cranial malformations encountered include craniosynostosis, deformational plagiocephaly, cutis aplasia, and encephalocele. Improved prenatal imaging can diagnose morphologic changes as early as the second trimester. Prenatal identification also provides perinatologists and neonatologists with valuable information that helps to optimize care during and after delivery. Cranial anomalies require a multidisciplinary team approach and occasionally a lifetime of care...

#11
REVIEW
Larry D Hartzell, Sivakumar Chinnadurai
Infants may be born with external ear deformities or malformations that can present a diagnostic clue to an affiliated syndrome while also presenting the possibility of surgical intervention. Microtia is a malformation of the ear that is associated with other craniofacial or systemic anomalies in 50% of cases. Surgical correction of microtia and associated facial anomalies is complex and must be integrated thoughtfully into the overall care plan for children with complex medical needs. Familiarity with types of ear and facial anomalies and their association with more global concerns can allow perinatal practitioners to better serve their patients...

#12
REVIEW
Mitchell L Worley, Krishna G Patel, Lauren A Kilpatrick
Orofacial clefts are common congenital malformations with genetic and environmental risk factors. In the perinatal period, feeding and nutrition can be a challenge and the need for specialized feeders is common. Lip taping and nasoalveolar molding are early interventions that can be used to preoperatively modify cleft defects to enhance surgical outcomes. Multiple techniques are available for repair of orofacial clefts and choice of technique depends on cleft extent and surgeon preference. After definitive repair, children remain at increased risk for middle ear disease, velopharyngeal dysfunction, and malocclusion and require ongoing follow-up with a multidisciplinary team...

#13
REVIEW
Nikhila Raol, Thomas Schrepfer, Christopher Hartnick
Dysphagia and aspiration are commonly encountered problems in the neonatal population. It is often multifactorial in nature and management should be tailored to the individual patient. Multiple causes should be considered, including anatomic abnormalities, neurologic/developmental delay, cardiopulmonary disease/infection, and gastroesophageal reflux disease, in addition to those cases where a definitive reason may not be identified. Management should be multidisciplinary in nature and surgical intervention may be indicated in certain populations of patients...

REVIEW
Kavita Dedhia, Elise Graham, Albert Park
Hearing loss is the most common congenital defect. With early diagnosis and intervention, we are able to improve speech and language outcomes in this population. In this article, we discuss the implications of the newborn hearing screen, as well as diagnostic interventions, management, and intervention, and the increasing role of congenital cytomegalovirus screening.

REVIEW
Kara Prickett, Luv Javia
Congenital causes of airway obstruction once noted at birth are now diagnosed prenatally. The adoption of ex utero intrapartum treatment has allowed for planned airway stabilization on placental support, dramatically decreasing the incidence of hypoxic injury or peripartum demise related to neonatal airway obstruction. Airway access is gained either through laryngoscopy, bronchoscopy, or a surgical airway. In complete airway obstruction, primary resection of the obstructing lesion may be performed before completion of delivery...

REVIEW
Balaji Govindaswami, Priya Jegatheesan, Matthew Nudelman, Sudha Rani Narasimhan
Preterm birth (PTB) rate varies widely and has significant racial and ethnic disparities. Although causal mechanisms are ill understood, socioenvironment, phenotype, and genotype provide insight into pathways for preventing PTB. Data suggest varied response to current medical interventions is explicable Approved by underlying pharmacogenomics. Currently, prevention focuses on minimizing iatrogenic PTB and risk reduction especially in those with prior PTB using proven medical and public health strategies. In the future, preventive approaches will be based on better understanding of sociodemography, nutrition, lifestyles, and underlying individual genetic and epigenetic variation...

REVIEW
Wanda D Barfield
With advanced perinatal care and technology, survival among infants born very preterm (<32 weeks gestation) has improved dramatically over the last several decades. However, adverse medical and neurodevelopmental outcomes for those born very preterm remains high, particularly at the lowest gestational ages. Public health plays a critical role in providing data to assess population-based risks associated with very preterm birth, addressing disparities, and identifying opportunities for prevention, including improving the health of reproductive-age women, before, during, and after pregnancy...
