OBJECTIVE: This study aims to investigate the association between fluid intake in the first 4 days of life and the subsequent severity of bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) in very low-birth-weight infants (VLBWI). STUDY DESIGN: A retrospective chart review of 75 infants with a gestational age of less than 32 weeks and a birth weight of < 1,500 g was performed. Demographic, clinical data, associated maternal risk factors, and amount of fluid received in the first 4 days of life were analyzed...

OBJECTIVE: To measure the red cell distribution width (RDW) ranges at birth and to evaluate potential association with typical neonatal diseases: patent of the ductus arteriousus (PDA), bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD), and late-onset sepsis (LOS) mortality. METHODS: Forty-six full-term, 41 preterm, and 35 intrauterine growth restricted (IUGR) infants participated in this retrospective, observational study. RDW was measured before 3 days of life (T0) in all infants, and at first month of life (T1) in preterm/IURG patients...

BACKGROUND: As progress is made towards attaining Millennium Development Goal 4, further reductions in paediatric mortality will only be achieved by concentrating on the burden of non-communicable or neglected diseases. The literature relating to paediatric cardiac disease in sub-Saharan Africa is sparse. There are no published descriptions of paediatric cardiac disease from Malawi, making it impossible to estimate the contribution it makes to childhood morbidity and mortality. FINDINGS: In 2008, a paediatric cardiac clinic with echocardiogram scanning was established in Blantyre, southern Malawi...

Over the last few years, a vast variety of devices have been developed to close various septal defects through the transcatheter route. Haemolysis has been documented after Amplatzer device closure of patent ductus arteriousus, atrial septal defect, and ventricular septal defect. We report one patient with self-limiting haemolysis after implantation of an Amplatzer perimembranous VSD device.

Caffeine is a silver bullet in neonatology. This ubiquitous trimethylxanthine, pervasively used in the human diet and beverages, significantly impacts on major acute neonatal morbidities including apnea of prematurity, bronchopulmonary dysplasia, patent ductus arteriousus with or without surgical ligation and post-operative apnea. Potential uses in respiratory distress syndrome as suggested by improved lung function in primate models is supported by the decreased time on mechanical ventilation and need for oxygen therapy...

AIMS: To report our experience and strategies with transcatheter closure of residual patent ductus arteriousus (RPDA) in patients with previous surgical ligation. METHODS AND RESULTS: Transcatheter closure of residual patent ductus arteriousus after surgical ligation was attempted in 19 patients. In 13 patients the residual patent ductus arteriosus was closed with detachable coils, in four with Rashkind umbrella and in two with Amplatzer occluder. In order to cross the recanalised duct with the delivery system a vascular loop was required in six patients...

Indomethacin (IND) is the drug of choice for the closure of a patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) in neonates. This paper describes a simple, sensitive, accurate and precise microscale HPLC method suitable for the analysis of IND in plasma of premature neonates. Samples were prepared by plasma protein precipitation with acetonitrile containing the methyl ester of IND as the internal standard (IS). Chromatography was performed on a Hypersil C(18) column. The mobile phase of methanol, water and orthophosphoric acid (70:29...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: A longitudinal, retrospective, observational descriptive study was done at the National Institute of Pediatrics in Mexico City to determine the incidence, type of heart disease and clinical course in patients with Down syndrome (DS), and to compare the findings with data from other countries. Down syndrome is a disease caused by trisomy of chromosome 21. The frequency of presentation in one in 650 live births. Frequency in the general population is about 1%...

The rapidly expanding role of transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) in the management and treatment of congenital heart disease includes guidance of interventional cardiac catheterization procedures and monitoring of results. TEE is particularly helpful for assessing device position during device closure of atrial septal defects (ASD), ventricular septal defects, and perivalvar defects, especially when multiple or complex defects are present. It is also useful during balloon dilation of certain congenital and postoperative obstructions...

In utero, the ductus arteriosus shunts deoxygenated blood away from the pulmonary artery and towards the placental circulation where foetal gas exchange occurs. As a result of an intricately intertwined network of both physiological and biochemical changes, this vessel constricts rapidly after birth. Deoxygenated blood is diverted away from the placenta and through the lungs now vital for gas exchange. Premature closure of the ductus in utero can cause pulmonary hypertension and even death. Conversely, failure to close after birth can exacerbate respiratory distress, precipitate congestive heart failure and increase the risk of subsequent intestinal ischaemia leading to necrotising enterocolitis, bronchopulmonary dysplasia, renal hypoperfusion and/or cerebral ischaemia...

Aneurysmal dilatation of a patent ductus arteriosus is a rare condition. One hundred and fifty three cases have been reported, of which 59 (39%) were operated, with an operative mortality of 16%. The authors report a case detected in a premature neonate on chest X-ray showing a mass in the mid-mediastinal region. Surgical resection was undertaken by video-thoracoscopy. Peroperative analysis of the resected specimen suggested a vascular structure and this was confirmed by histological study, which showed spontaneous aneurysm of a thrombosed patent ductus arteriosus or cystic residue of a patent ductus arteriousus...

Congenital coronary artery fistulae are rare anomalies (0.27-0.4% of all congenital heart defects) and consist of a communication between a coronary artery and a cardiac chamber, a great artery or the superior vena cava. The association of these congenital anomalies with other congenital cardiovascular defects is unusual. The purpose of this paper is to report a case of congenital coronary fistula between the anterior descending coronary artery and the pulmonary artery associated with patent ductus arteriosus and to review the literature on the subject...

During a two-year period, 21 premature infants (weight at birth, 680 to 2,340 gm) had operative closure of patent ductus arteriosus (PDA). The first 6 infants had ligation performed in the operating room (OR); the subsequent 15 had ligation in the Newborn Intensive Care Unit. There were no immediate postoperative deaths. Two infants died from problems presnet preoperatively within 30 days postoperatively. There were no infections. Technique in the unit utilizes an open warmer with local anesthesia and a paralyzing agent...

Report of the case of a 50-year woman with a cyanotoc congential heart disease, relatively well tolerated up to the age of 49. The diagnosis was made at autopsy only. No case published in the literature till now had exceeded the age of 45 years, although the types of truncus arteriosus.
