BACKGROUND: The aim of the study was to analyse body composition of preterm infants fed with either breast milk or formula compared to a control group of full-term newborns. METHODS: Fifty-three newborns were enrolled: a group of 34 very low birth weight (VLBW) preterm newborns subdivided into a formula-fed (n = 23; group A) and breast milk-fed (n = 11; group B) group, and a control group of 19 full-term infants (group C). Their body composition was assessed by a bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) either at the estimated time of birth in the VLBW group or during the 1st week of life in the full-term group...

BACKGROUND: Video-assisted thoracoscopic bullectomy with pleurodesis is widely used to treat spontaneous pneumothorax. However, 1%-3% of patients experience postoperative complications that may require reoperation, such as bleeding or prolonged air leaks, and 3%-7% of patients require a repeat thoracoscopic bullectomy due to recurrence. Therefore, a modified procedure with improved outcomes is required. METHODS: Between January 1, 2011 and December 31, 2015, 196 patients with spontaneous pneumothorax underwent thoracoscopic bullectomy and pleurodesis with or without fixation of the lung apex to the chest wall...

BACKGROUND: Pediatric poisoning is a common emergency worldwide. Routine surveillance is required for public health authorities and physicians to update strategies for prevention and management of pediatric poisoning. This study investigated the epidemiology of poisoning among children admitted to an emergency department (ED). METHODS: This was a retrospective descriptive study. Data were collected from patients under 18 years old (y/o) presenting with poisoning at the largest ED in North Taiwan from 2011 to 2015...

BACKGROUND: Approximately 25% of congenital heart diseases (CHD) are estimated to be critical and require an intervention. In this study, we aimed to investigate the additional value of peripheral perfusion index (PPI) measurements to pulse oximetry screening for critical CHD (CCHD). METHODS: Infants born at Ege University Hospital between May 2013 and September 2015 were prospectively included in the study. In addition to physical examination, pre- and postductal oxygen saturations and PPI values were measured with a new generation pulse oximeter before discharge from the hospital...

BACKGROUND: Studies investigating reasons for the admission and the associated lengths of stay (LOSs) among cerebral palsy (CP) patients are limited. This study determined common reasons for acute hospitalizations and the LOSs among children, adolescents, and young adults with CP. METHODS: We performed a secondary analysis of data. CP patients aged 4-32.9 years were identified by CP registry in the catastrophic illness patient registry of the 2010 Taiwan National Health Insurance Research Database...

BACKGROUND: To determine vitamin D status in children with chronic liver disease (CLD) in a tropical country. METHODS: Cross-sectional study in Malaysian children with CLD. Factors affecting serum vitamin D level (definition: deficient < 30 nmol/L; insufficient 30-50 nmol/L; sufficient ≥ 50 nmol/L) was analyzed. RESULTS: Of the 59 children studied (males 32, 54%; median age 6.8 ± 5.3 years), the three most common causes were biliary atresia (n = 25), autoimmune hepatitis (n = 16) and sclerosing cholangitis (n = 6)...

BACKGROUND: To improve the objective assessment of continuous video-EEG (cEEG) monitoring of neonatal brain function, the aim was to relate automated derived amplitude and duration parameters of the suppressed periods in the EEG background (dynamic Interburst Interval= dIBIs) after neonatal hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE) to favourable or adverse neurodevelopmental outcome. METHODS: Nineteen neonates (gestational age 36-41 weeks) with HIE underwent therapeutic hypothermia and had cEEG-monitoring...

Kawasaki disease (KD) has become the most common form of pediatric systemic vasculitis. Although patients with KD received intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) therapy, coronary arterial lesions (CALs) still occurred in 5%-10% of these patients during the acute stage. CALs may persist and even progress to stenosis or obstruction. Therefore, CALs following KD are currently the leading cause of acquired heart diseases in children. The etiology of CALs remains unknown despite more than four decades of research. Two unsolved problems are IVIG unresponsiveness and the diagnosis of incomplete KD...

BACKGROUND: The factors affecting the safety and efficacy of aminophylline use in the treatment of apnea of prematurity (AOP) in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) are not clear. In this study, we aimed to evaluate the potential factors affecting the efficacy and safety of aminophylline in AOP treatment at standard doses and to determine appropriate patients for this therapy. METHODS: Over a 3-year period (January 2012 to December 2014), the medical records of 206 preterm infants with apnea who were admitted to the NICU of our hospital to receive aminophylline infusions were retrospectively reviewed...

BACKGROUND AND METHODS: Chromosome microarray analysis (CMA) is currently the first-tier diagnostic assay for the evaluation of developmental delay (DD) and intellectual disability (ID) with unknown etiology. Here, we present our clinical experience in implementing whole-genome high-resolution single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) arrays to investigate 489 patients with unexplained DD/ID in whom standard karyotyping analyses showed normal karyotypes. This study aimed to assess the usefulness of CMA for clinical diagnostic testing in the Chinese population...

BACKGROUND: The pathogenesis of allergic diseases in childhood may be attributed to influences of early environmental stimuli on fetal and neonatal immune regulation. Neonatal hyperbilirubinemia is common in the Asian population and up to 20% of infants require phototherapy. We examined the hypothesis that phototherapy for neonatal hyperbilirubinemia modulates the infant's risk of developing eczema, rhinitis and wheeze in the Growing Up in Singapore Towards healthy Outcomes (GUSTO) birth cohort...

INTRODUCTION: The aim of this study was to assess the role of TNF-α 308 G>A gene polymorphism in children's overweight risk so as to correlate this polymorphism with anthropometric and biochemical variables. MATERIALS AND METHOD: A cross-sectional study was carried out on 188 Romanian children ages 5-18 years, who were classified into controls (Group 1; n = 109) and overweight children (Group 2; n = 79). RESULTS: Higher values of MUAC and TST (p < 0...

BACKGROUND: Vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) is an important urologic anomaly that causes renal injury in children with febrile urinary tract infection (UTI). The present study aimed to evaluate the associations of abnormalities detected on technetium-99m-labeled dimercaptosuccinic acid (DMSA) scans, focusing on the association with VUR of the levels of relative decrease in kidney function and cortical defects after a first febrile UTI in children. METHODS: All 171 children underwent ultrasonography, DMSA scan and voiding cystourethrography (VCUG)...

AIM: Our study objectives were to evaluate umbilical cord blood acid-base balance in presence of nuchal cord at delivery, effects of nuchal cord at delivery on perinatal outcomes and incidence of nuchal cord in a racially diverse population. METHODS: Perinatal records of 2530 women (predominantly African American and Hispanic) who delivered in 2012 were examined. Perinatal outcomes of women who delivered a baby with nuchal cord were compared with those without nuchal cord...
