INTRODUCTION: Thrombocytopenia is defined as platelet count less than 150×10(9)/L, it has a greater incidence in Intensive Care Units (ICUs) compared to wards and its most common cause is increased platelet consumption. AIMS: To investigate incidence of thrombocytopenia, platelet transfusions requirement, associated diseases and relationship between thrombocytopenia and mortality. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Eleven months hospital records between October 2013 and August 2014 of the PICU in a tertiary care teaching hospital was investigated retrospectively and 275 critically ill children formed the sample...

BACKGROUND: Elevated serum transaminases that are often observed in critically ill children are frequently attributed to liver injury. Indeed, hypoperfused or hypoxemic livers will produce sudden and marked elevations of alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and aspartate aminotransferase (AST). The aim of this study was to determine the frequency and consequences of elevated serum transaminases in children following cardiac surgery. METHODS: Charts of all children admitted to the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit following cardiac surgery over a 10-year period were retrospectively analyzed...

AIM: To investigate the prognostic relevance of hepatobiliary scintigraphy (HBS) in newborns suffering from biliary atresia (BA) for establishing the primary diagnosis and in the postoperative follow-up after portoenterostomy (Kasai). METHODS: Twenty newborns with direct hyperbilirubinemia and 6 children after operative treatment of BA (Kasai) underwent HBS with Tc-99m-DEIDA. In patients without intestinal drainage, hepatocellular extraction was estimated visually and calculated semiquantitatively by means of liver/heart-ratio 5 min p...

Long-term survival of biliary atresia patients after Kasai hepatoportoenterostomy is being increasingly reported. Favorable prognostic factors are: 1) Young age at operation (max. 60 days). 2) Few incidents of postoperative cholangitis. Jaundice-free long-term survival is achieved in one-fourth to one-third of patients undergoing Kasai hepatoportoenterostomy. Without treatment the average life span is 19 months. Twenty infants with biliary atresia were treated with the Kasai operation between 1976 and 1992...
