BACKGROUND: It has been reported that folic acid supplementation before and/or during pregnancy could reduce the risk of congenital heart defects (CHDs). However, the results from limited epidemiologic studies have been inconclusive. We investigated the associations between maternal folic acid supplementation, dietary folate intake, and the risk of CHDs. METHODS: A birth cohort study was conducted in 2010-2012 at the Gansu Provincial Maternity & Child Care Hospital in Lanzhou, China...

The primary cilium is a key organelle in numerous physiological and developmental processes. Genetic defects in the formation of this non-motile structure, in its maintenance and function, underlie a wide array of ciliopathies in human, including craniofacial, brain and heart malformations, and retinal and hearing defects. We used exome sequencing to study the molecular basis of disease in an 11-year-old female patient who suffered from growth retardation, global developmental delay with absent speech acquisition, agenesis of corpus callosum and paucity of white matter, sensorineural deafness, retinitis pigmentosa, vertebral anomalies, patent ductus arteriosus, and facial dysmorphism reminiscent of STAR syndrome, a suspected ciliopathy...

REVIEW
Alejandro V Garcia, Jeffrey Lukish
A patent ductus arteriosus is a common condition, particularly in premature infants. Many spontaneously resolve but those that lead to clinical instability require closure. Conservative measures can be highly successful in selected groups. Surgical repair is effective and both open and minimally invasive approaches can be used. The minimally invasive approach may result in less long-term morbidity from a thoracotomy and may prove advantageous for these fragile infants, including less pain, shorter time on the ventilator, and shorter hospital stays...

OBJECTIVE Although endoscopic third ventriculostomy (ETV) with choroid plexus cauterization (CPC) has gained increasing prominence in the management of hydrocephalus caused by intraventricular hemorrhage of prematurity, the rates of long-term shunt independence remain low. Furthermore, limited evidence is available to identify infants who might benefit from the procedure. The authors tested the hypothesis that elevated venous pressure that results from comorbid cardiac disease might predispose patients to ETV/CPC failure and shunt dependence...

Nontraumatic hemopericardium is a potentially fatal pathology that is most commonly caused by myocardial wall rupture, ruptured aortic dissection, aortic aneurysm rupture, or a neoplastic process. A rare potential cause of hemopericardium is pulmonary artery dissection, with less than 100 reported cases in the literature. Pulmonary artery dissection is associated with pulmonary artery aneurysm, pulmonary artery hypertension, and congenital heart disease. We report a fatal case of nontraumatic hemopericardium caused by a ruptured dissecting pulmonary artery aneurysm in a 16-year-old girl with patent ductus arteriosus...

Percutaneous treatment of patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) in extreme premature infants is technically difficult, and therefore, often not consider as an alternative to surgery. The main objective of our work was to compare respiratory status prior and post ductal closure and morbi-mortality, in our series of preterm infants with percutaneous PDA closure versus surgical ligation in the same time-period. Retrospective review of all premature infants submitted to percutaneous and surgical PDA closure from January 2011 to December 2016...

BACKGROUND: Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a common event in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), especially in extremely-low-birth-weight (ELBW) infants. This cohort study investigated the incidence of and risk factors for AKI in ELBW infants and their overall survival at the postmenstrual age (PMA) of 36 weeks. METHODS: All ELBW infants admitted to our NICU between January 2010 and December 2013 were enrolled. Those who died prior to 72 hours of life, had congenital renal abnormality, or had only one datum of the serum creatinine (SCr) level after the first 24 hours of life were excluded...

AIM: Symptomatic patent ductus arteriosus may lead to serious complications in extremely preterm and extremely low birth weight infants and is often resistant to medication. We evaluated early intravenous paracetamol for pain prevention during respiratory therapy, in an attempt to understand the ductal treatment of such infants. METHODS: Our cohort were 295 extremely preterm or extremely low birth weight infants, born at less than 28 weeks or 1,000g, respectively, who were treated in the neonatal intensive care unit of Oulu University Hospital from 2002-2015, before and after intravenous paracetamol was introduced in June 2009...

Congenital heart disease (CHD) is the most common type of developmental abnormality in humans, and is a leading cause for substantially increased morbidity and mortality in affected individuals. Increasing studies demonstrates a pivotal role of genetic defects in the pathogenesis of CHD, and presently mutations in more than 60 genes have been associated with CHD. Nevertheless, CHD is of pronounced genetic heterogeneity, and the genetic basis underpinning CHD in a large proportion of patients remains unclear...

Congenital heart disease (CHD) increases the risk of infective endocarditis (IE), though the lesion-specific risk and mortality are poorly defined. Using the population-based Quebec CHD database, we sought to describe the predictors of IE and to evaluate if IE was associated with mortality among adult CHD (ACHD) patients without prior valve replacement surgery. We extracted data on ACHD patients with IE and assessed the lesion-specific incidence of IE, risk factors for IE acquisition, and all-cause 1-year mortality...

BACKGROUND: Intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH) is one of the most serious complications in preterm infants and is associated with neurological sequelae and mortality. Over the past few decades, the rate of IVH has decreased due to improved neonatal intensive care. However, up to 15-25% of very and extremely premature infants (<32 and <28weeks of pregnancy (WOP) respectively) still suffer from IVH. STUDY PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to perform an updated, multicenter analysis to identify ante-, peri, and postnatal factors other than gestational age/birth weight associated with IVH of any grade in a large cohort of very and extremely premature infants...

Branchio-oto-renal syndrome (BOR) is a rare autosomal dominant disorder. The features include branchial cysts, hearing loss, ear malformation, preauricular pits, retrognathia, congenital heart disease, and renal abnormalities. However, anesthetic management of these patients has seldom been reported. We report a case in which general anesthesia was performed for dental treatment in a patient with BOR. Airway management, renal function, and hemodynamic changes can be of critical concern during anesthetic management...
