OBJECTIVE: To evaluate whether exposure to CC for ovulation induction is associated with either overall major malformations or specific fetal anomalies. DESIGN: We conducted a population-based retrospective cohort. Exposure was defined as CC dispension from two months before conception through the first month of pregnancy. SETTINGS: Four databases were combined: medication, birth, hospitalization and pregnancy terminations. POPULATION: The study included all women in southern Israel who gave birth or underwent pregnancy termination at Soroka Medical Center from 1998 to 2009...

Persistent left superior vena cava (PLSVC) is a common cardiac anomaly associated with congenital heart diseases. A diagnosis of PLSVC usually warrants a detailed fetal echocardiography. Lesser known associations are the extra cardiac anomalies notably the upper airway and the gastrointestinal tract anomalies. We highlight here the importance of detailed fetal assessment for extra cardiac anomalies in addition to fetal echocardiography in fetuses diagnosed with PLSVC. We hereby present a preterm infant who presented with a triad of PLSVC, laryngeal atresia, and esophageal atresia...

AIM: Airway aspiration is a common problem in children with esophageal atresia (EA). Pediatric Eating Assessment Tool-10 (pEAT-10) is a self-administered questionnaire to evaluate dysphagia symptoms in children. A prospective study was performed to evaluate the validity of pEAT-10 to predict aspiration in children with EA. METHODS: Patients with EA were evaluated for age, sex, type of atresia, presence of associated anomalies, type of esophageal repair, time of definitive treatment, and the beginning of oral feeding...

Aim The aim of this study was to evaluate the results of Swallowing Rehabilitation Protocol (SRP) on swallowing function (SF) of esophageal atresia and tracheoesophageal fistula (EA-TEF) patients with pharyngeal swallowing disorder. Materials and Methods In this study, 24 children with EA-TEF who had deglutitive and respiratory problems were grouped into either study (n = 12) or control group (n = 12) by basic randomization. Study group received the SRP including neuromuscular electrical stimulation, thermal tactile stimulation, and hyolaryngeal mobilization...

BACKGROUND: The antenatal diagnosis of a combined esophageal atresia without tracheoesophageal fistula and duodenal atresia with or without gastric perforation is a rare occurrence. These diagnoses are difficult and can be suspected on ultrasound by nonspecific findings including a small stomach and polyhydramnios. Fetal magnetic resonance imaging adds significant anatomical detail and can aid in the diagnosis of these complicated cases. Upon an extensive literature review, there are no reports documenting these combined findings in a twin pregnancy...

RATIONALE: Communicating bronchopulmonary foregut malformation (CBPFM) is a rare congenital malformation involving both the digestive and respiratory systems. To our best knowledge, most cases of CBPFM reported in the literature were in infancy or adulthood and CBPFM in infantile is even rarer with a high case-fatality rate partly due to misdiagnosis. PATIENT CONCERNS: We presented 2 cases of neonatal CBPFM. A 11-hour male newborn was admitted because of moaning for 7 hours, and a 1-day male newborn was referred to us with profuse foams, choking on breast-milk feeding and facial cyanosis...

This case report describes a patient with a 22q11.2 duplication. His features, which include VACTERL association with an esophageal atresia/tracheo-esophageal fistula and a vascular ring, expand the previously described phenotype for this duplication.

Introduction The aim of this study was to stratify anastomotic strictures (AS) following esophageal atresia (EA) repair and to establish predictors for the need of dilations. Material and Methods A retrospective study on children operated on for EA between 2004 and 2014 was conducted. The stricture index (SI) was measured both radiologically (SIXR) and endoscopically (SIEND). A correlation analysis between the SI and the number of dilations was performed using Spearman's test and linear regression analysis...

Objective: To investigate the clinical value of acoustic radiation force impulse (ARFI)technique in predicting esophageal and gastric varices in patients with biliary atresia after Kasai portoenterostomy. Methods: A total of 42 patients with biliary atresia after Kasai portoenterostomy were collected from September 2015 to May 2016 in Tianjin First Central Hospital.ARFI technique was used to measure the stiffness of liver and spleen, and 28 healthy children as control.According to the result of CT examination , patients with biliary atresia were divided into two groups , twenty-three patients with esophageal and gastric varices(A group) and nineteen patients without esophageal and gastric varices (B group), Comparing the difference of liver and spleen stiffness between the two groups...

OBJECTIVES: Patients with esophageal atresia/tracheo-esophageal fistula (EA-TEF) can develop Barrett's esophagus as a long-term consequence of their condition. Intestinal metaplasia (IM), a risk factor for developing adenocarcinoma of the esophagus, has not been well characterized in the pediatric population. METHODS: Retrospective review of EA-TEF patients followed at three academic pediatric centers between the years 1997 and 2014. RESULTS: Among 542 children and adolescents, 1...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Data on long-term outcome of exercise capacity in school-aged children with esophageal atresia (EA) are scarce. We evaluated maximal exercise capacity and its relation to lung function. Moreover, we studied other possible determinants of exercise capacity and lung function. METHODS: Exercise capacity of 63 children with EA born 1999-2007 was evaluated at the age of 8 years with the Bruce-protocol. Dynamic and static lung volumes, bronchodilator response and diffusion capacity were measured...
