INTRODUCTION:  Prematurity, formula feeding, and early weaning strongly influence enterocyte differentiation. Intestinal alkaline phosphatase (IAP), an endogenous protein expressed in the intestines, is one enzyme that is affected by these factors. IAP supplementation decreases the severity of necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) injury. We, therefore, hypothesized that prematurity predisposes this population to NEC due to IAP deficiency and investigated IAP expression and function in a neonatal rat model...

INTRODUCTION:  Congenital malformations are associated with substantial neonatal morbidity and mortality. Furthermore, only sparse data are available on the modalities of care provided to and the associated clinical outcomes in affected neonates. In this study, we focused on five malformations that require surgery during the neonatal period: duodenal stenosis and atresia (DA), gastroschisis (GA), omphalocele (OM), congenital diaphragmatic herniation (CDH), and esophageal atresia (EA)...

Stem cells possess the ability of self-renewal and the potency to differentiate into multiple cell lineages. Somatic stem cells are present in adult tissues, but they usually exhibit limited differentiation capacity and life span. On the other hand, somatic cells from adult tissues can be reprogrammed into induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) that retain a full differentiation capacity with unlimited self-renewal ability. Autologous origin of iPSCs makes them an ideal source of cells for regenerative medicine to replenish the missing or damaged cells in the patients...

BACKGROUND:  Pediatric inguinal hernia, hydrocele, and cryptorchidism are common congenital anomalies affecting children, and require surgical intervention in some cases. The association between surgical treatment of these conditions and acquired inguinal hernia later in life is poorly understood. The aim of this cohort study was to examine the effect of groin surgery during childhood on the incidence and surgical outcome of inguinal hernia repair in adult life. MATERIALS AND METHODS:  Data from the Swedish Inpatient Register and the Swedish Hernia Register were cross-linked using the patient personal identity numbers...

PURPOSE:  Dynamic graciloplasty (DGP) has been used to treat severe fecal incontinence since the 1980s. Previous studies have shown an inferior outcome in patients with anorectal malformations (ARMs). Our experience has been that DGP has been appreciated by ARM -patients. The objective of the study was to evaluate the long-term outcome of DGP in our patients with ARM compared with patients with other underlying conditions. MATERIALS AND METHODS:  Twenty-three patients operated with DGP at our institution from 1996 to 2010 were sent validated bowel function and quality of life questionnaires...

Annie Hsiao, Ashwin Pimpalwar
INTRODUCTION:  External angular dermoid cysts, or epidermoid inclusion cysts, are a common subcutaneous tumor of the head and neck. For the majority of these lesions, excision is relatively simple and performed through an incision immediately overlying the mass. Facial lesions in pediatric patients present a unique challenge in that a direct approach carries the potential for visible scar formation. OBJECTIVE:  This article aims to detail our experience with subcutaneoscopic excision of external angular dermoid cysts in pediatric patients using endoscopic instrumentation...

BACKGROUND:  Surgical treatment of pediatric tibia shaft fractures has gained popularity despite closed reduction and cast-immobilization providing good long-term results. There is no consensus about optimal methods and satisfactory quality of treatment. MATERIALS AND METHODS:  During 2010 to 2014, 226 pediatric patients were treated under anesthesia for tibia shaft fractures in Finland's five university hospitals. A total of 164 (73%) patients had closed fractures of the tibia or both tibia and fibula without other injuries (62 tibia only and 102 both tibia and fibula)...

AIM:  Regular anal dilatations are commonly recommended in the postoperative management following posterior sagittal anorectoplasty (PSARP) in anorectal malformations (ARM). We hypothesized that routine postoperative dilatations may not affect surgical outcomes following PSARP. We compare surgical outcomes of routine postoperative dilatations versus no routine postoperative dilatations from two United Kingdom tertiary pediatric surgical centers. METHODS:  This is retrospective records review of patients undergoing definitive surgery for ARM in two tertiary surgical centers in the UK over 5 years...

Necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) is a devastating condition that mainly affects premature infants. Advanced cases of NEC require surgical treatment, which in up to 70% of infants is associated with significant perioperative morbidity including anastomosis- or enterostomy-related complications, sepsis, peritonitis, and wound infections. Moreover, the perioperative complications may compromise the long-term gastrointestinal and neurodevelopmental outcome of patients requiring surgery for NEC.

Current survival rate of infants with esophageal atresia with/without tracheoesophageal fistula (EA/TEF) exceeds 90% and great interest is dedicated to the long-term outcomes and complications. However, perioperative complications represent a significant burden to the EA/TEF infants and a technical challenge for the surgeon. In this review, we will focus on the most frequent perioperative complications specific of EA/TEF to describe their predisposing factors, possible preventive measures, and treatment options...

Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) has gained broad acceptance among pediatric surgeons. Today, VATS can be regarded as a routine approach for various conditions in neonates and infants. However, there is a lack of information concerning the complications of thoracoscopic pulmonary surgery in neonates and infants. We aimed to review the available data. A systematic review of the literature was performed using PubMed. All publications reporting on VATS for pulmonary procedures in neonates and infants up to the age of 1 year were included...

Biliary atresia (BA) and congenital choledochal malformations (CCM) are rare. Both pathologies must (BA) or may (CCM) be operated during the neonatal period or early infancy. We briefly describe the classical operative techniques for both pathologies, followed by the most common and severe perioperative complications encountered during and up to 30 days after surgery in children operated for BA and CCM early in life. For patients with BA, intestinal complications represent the most common and hazardous perioperative surgical complications...

REVIEW
Arun Kelay, Nigel J Hall
Pyloromyotomy is the tried and tested surgical procedure for successful operative treatment of pyloric stenosis. Over time, the operative approach has evolved to take advantage of cosmetically superior incisions and more recently minimally invasive surgery. During and following surgery, complications are uncommon. The specific complications of an inadequate pyloromyotomy requiring repeated procedure and mucosal perforation during an overzealous pyloromyotomy represent the ends of a spectrum within which sits the perfect procedure...

REVIEW
Mikko Pakarinen
Transanal pull-through is currently one of the most commonly used operation to treat Hirschsprung's disease (HD) worldwide. It has undergone some technical modifications during the last decades and still contains variable surgical practices. As high quality comparative studies between different surgical approaches are missing, debate over the optimal operation for HD still continues. Transanal pull-through is associated with multiple potential complications, which may result in permanently impaired functional outcome, life-long morbidity, and significant social restrictions...

REVIEW
Catarina Barroso, Jorge Correia-Pinto
Although improvements have been made, the management of congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) remains a major challenge for perinatologists and neonatal surgeons. Many aspects of the disease remain unknown and, being a rare entity, evidence-based data are hard to find. Surgical morbidity is considerable and affects long-term quality of life. Perioperative complications have been reviewed focusing on thoracoscopic repair. Intraoperative acidosis was more severe during thoracoscopy when compared with open surgery (OS), though it is possible that later neurodevelopment was not affected...
