Introduction Pediatric necrotizing fasciitis (NF) is a rare but severe, life-threatening infection. Early diagnosis is crucial to reduce morbidity and mortality, but initial symptoms are nonspecific. Little sound data exists on factors aiding clinicians to recognize NF in children. With a systematic literature review, we aimed to better characterize pediatric NF. We focused on triggers, symptoms, and laboratory and microbiological findings and differences between pediatric adult patients. Materials and Methods A literature research was conducted according to the guidance of the "Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses...

Introduction Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) are used as prophylaxis, guarding against anastomotic stricture (AS) in the aftermath of reconstructed esophageal atresia (EA). The incidence of stricture formation was studied in this setting, comparing outcomes of 3- and 12-month PPI prophylactic regimens. Patients and Methods Patient characteristics (gestational age, birth weight, prevalence of chromosomal aberrations, and other malformations), as well as rates of survival, AS formation, and required balloon dilation, were recorded in the following therapeutic subsets: (1) all infants undergoing primary surgical anastomosis for EA in years 2010-2014 and given postoperative PPI prophylaxis for 12 months and (2) all infants similarly treated for EA in years 2001-2009 but given postoperative PPI prophylaxis for 3 months only...

Introduction Hirschsprung disease (HD) is a congenital bowel innervation disorder that involves several clinical specialties. There is an increasing interest on the topic reflected by the number of annually published items. It is therefore difficult for a single scientist to survey all published items and to gauge their scientific importance or value. Thus, tremendous efforts were made to establish sustainable parameters to evaluate scientific work within the past decades. It was the birth of scientometrics...

Background The prosthesis commonly used for the treatment of congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) lacks elasticity to replace the diaphragm's mechanical properties and does not follow the natural growth of the child treated. Objective To determine the appropriate properties required for the prostheses, a CT study on healthy patients was conducted. Methods Two methods of diaphragmatic surface analysis are assessed: the diaphragmatic surface is either estimated using surface 2D estimations (method 1), or calculated using length measures on thoracoabdominal CT scans from children (method 2)...
