BACKGROUND: Childhood cancer survivors (CCSs) and their family members continue to live in fear even after treatment is concluded due to concerns about late effects and recurrences. The consequent long-term psychological burden requires long-term follow-up suited to the anxieties and needs of CCSs, which is why we have conducted the present survey. METHODS: We conducted a questionnaire survey at medical facilities in the Chugoku and Shikoku regions of Japan with CCSs who had survived for at least 5 years following treatment, and their family members...

BACKGROUND: The diagnosis of biliary atresia (BA) is still challenging. The aim of this study was to analyze the clinical features and parameters that contribute to a diagnosis of BA. METHODS: From January 2000 to December 2013, 37 patients who underwent operative cholangiography were evaluated retrospectively. The patients were divided into two groups: a BA group, and a group with other cholestatic diseases (non-BA group). The demographic data and preoperative liver function test results were analyzed...

AIM: To analyse the relationship between creativity and physical fitness in elementary school children. METHOD: Data were collected from 308 primary school students in southern Spain, ranging in age from 8 to 12 years (M=9.72, SD=1.25). They performed a fitness test battery and the PIC-N questionnaire test was used to analyse creativity. RESULTS: Significant differences were found between sexes. Boys showed better physical fitness but there were no sex differences on creativity...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the frequency of central nervous system comorbidities in children with neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1). METHODS: We performed a nationwide survey to investigate neurological comorbidities in 3-15-year-old children with NF1 in Japan by sending questionnaires to pediatricians and pediatric neurologists. A secondary questionnaire was sent to the parents of identified NF1 patients to assess neurological comorbidities including headache, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)-Rating Scale (RS), and the Social Responsiveness Scale -2...

PATIENTS AND METHODS: We examined 458 strains of S. pneumoniae obtained from 22 pediatric institutions throughout Japan from January to June 2010 (immediately after the introduction of PCV-7) and 370 strains obtained from 19 institutions from January to June 2012 (after PCV-7 became widely used). The samples were collected from children aged 0-14 years with conditions such as respiratory tract infections (upper airway inflammation, bronchitis, and pneumonia), meningitis, and sepsis RESULTS: The most frequent serotype in the 2010 strains was 19F (17...

BACKGROUND: Very few studies about Adrenal insufficiency (AI) have been published in patients with non-transfusion-dependent thalassemia (NTDT), and none of those studies were in α-thalassemia patients. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of AI in patients with non-transfusion-dependent (NTD) alpha (α)-thalassemia, and to identify factors that predict the development of AI in this thalassemia subpopulation. METHODS: This cross-sectional descriptive study was conducted in NTD α-thalassemic children at 3 referral hospitals in Thailand during the 2015 to 2016 study period...

BACKGROUND: The combination of fludarabine (Flu), high dose cytarabine (Ara-C) and granulocyte-colony stimulating factor (G-CSF) called "FLAG" with anthracyclines has become a standard chemotherapy for refractory acute myeloid leukemia (AML) in European children and adults. To clarify the efficacy and the safety of FLAG-idarubicin (IDA) for children prospectively, we planned a multicenter phase II study (AML-R11) by Japanese Pediatric Leukemia/Lymphoma Study Group. METHODS: Patients with AML at the age between 2 and 20 years old, who had the first bone marrow (BM) relapse or induction failure, were enrolled...

BACKGROUND: Appropriate device selection is crucial for endobronchial foreign body removal using a bronchoscope. In pediatric patients, bronchoscopy requires the use of a thin device due to the narrow access to the airway, limiting the range of useful endobronchial devices. We herein review our experience in endobronchial foreign body removal with a focus on the type of bronchoscope and the instruments used in comparison with the previously published literature and investigate the utility of mini grasping basket forceps (FG-55D, Olympus(®) and Zero Tip(™) Airway Retrieval Basket, Boston Scientific(®) )...

BACKGROUND: The burden of post-neonatal mortality remains considerably high in Nigeria. This study examines the rural-urban differences in post-neonatal mortality rates (PNMR) and associated factors in Nigeria. METHODS: Dataset from the 2013 Nigeria demographic and health survey, disaggregated by rural-urban residence, was analyzed. PNMR was reported using frequency tabulation, whereas, factors associated were first evaluated using Chi-Square test and further examined using multivariable logistic regression analysis...

BACKGROUND: We measured changes in the blood levels of high mobility group box-1 (HMGB-1) at 24-hour intervals in neonates treated with brain/body hypothermia (BHT) for hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE), to evaluate the usefulness of HMGB-1 levels for determining outcomes. METHODS: We studied 15 neonates with HIE who underwent BHT (BHT (+) group) and 6 neonates with HIE who did not (BHT (-) group). We recorded HMGB-1 changes at 24-hour intervals, creatinine phosphokinase (CK), and the resistance index of the anterior cerebral artery (ACA-RI)...

BACKGROUND: Young children undergoing magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) require sedation. In June 2013, Tokyo Metropolitan Ohtsuka Hospital (TMOH) introduced an oral sedation protocol for young children undergoing MRI; the protocol included instructions on fasting before sedation, and recommended a shorter duration of sleep the night before MRI. We compared the MRI success rate before and after the introduction of this protocol. METHODS: The eligible subjects were children under 3 years old who underwent MRI by appointment at TMOH between October 2012 and March 2014, under sedation with triclofos sodium...

BACKGROUND: The use of neonatal 3-lead electrocardiograms (Neo-ECG) is suggested as a method for the assessment of heart rate (HR) in neonatal resuscitation, but primary childbirth facilities (i.e., maternity clinics or maternity homes) are not sufficiently equipped for this. The objective of this study was to confirm the potential of using a handheld fetal Doppler device (FDD), widely used to assess HR in labor room resuscitation, and to compare its equivalency to Neo-ECG. METHODS: In low-risk full-term infants, HR was measured 5 times/minute in minutes 1-5 postpartum using the FDD and Neo-ECG, and their equivalence was compared...

BACKGROUND: Decline in neurocognitive function is a reported complication in children with chronic illness. Concerns have been increasing that exposure to a major surgery or trauma may negatively impact cognitive performance in children. This study has evaluated cognitive function in 43 Korean children who received organ transplantation, and sought to identify associated clinical factors. METHODS: Pediatric recipients of kidney (KT) or liver transplantation (LT) from years 1999 to 2011 were recruited for cognitive tests...
