necrotising entercolitis

Per-Arne Lönnqvist
I would like to reply to the issues raised by the letter from Dr Barrington (1) on my Different View article on disability-free survival and number needed to suffer (2). However, first of all I would like to provide some important background on my interest in this area.First, I worked in NICU care for more than 10 years before focusing on paediatric anaesthesia and I am the proud father of premature triplets born at 31+4 weeks. As such, I have also been a parent who has witnessed NICU care three times for three months, including surfactant replacement, mechanical ventilation, surgical ductus ligation, sepsis and necrotising entercolitis treated by nil-by-mouth, total parenteral nutrition and antibiotics...

BACKGROUND: Necrotising enterocolitis (NEC) and late-onset sepsis (LOS) are the leading causes of death among preterm infants in the developed world. This study aimed to explore the serum proteome and metabolome longitudinally in preterm infants with NEC or LOS, matched to controls. METHODS: Nineteen patients (10 cases, 9 controls) were included. A sample 14 d prior to and following, as well as at disease diagnosis, was included for cases. Controls had serum matched at diagnosis for corresponding case...

OBJECTIVE: To compare mortality, short-term morbidity and long-term neurodevelopmental outcomes of <29 week premature infants with antenatal steroid exposure (none, incomplete and complete). PATIENTS AND METHODS: Multicentre retrospective cohort study, within a geographically defined area in Australia served by a network of 10 neonatal intensive care units (NICUs), of infants <29 weeks gestational age, admitted to NICUs between 1998 and 2004. Outcome measures included hospital survival, perinatal complications and functional disability at 2-3 years follow-up...

Soon after birth, the human gastrointestinal tract quickly becomes colonised by a variety of bacterial species. Throughout life the gastrointestinal tract continues to serve as host to a complex society of nonpathological bacteria. Microorganisms, such as probiotics, have the potential to modulate mucosal immune response and reduce gastrointestinal inflammation caused by a variety of infectious and allergic events. The most widely studied genera of probiotics are lactobacilli and bifidobacteria. Lactobacillus rhamnosis strain ATC53103 (LGG) can replenish gut flora during infectious diarrhoeal episodes...

In order to determine the outcome of infants with fulminant necrotising entercolitis (NEC), the records of 128 surgically-treated neonates were reviewed. Fifty-two were found to have severe, rapid-onset disease. The 30-day survival was determined and correlated with birth weight, gestational age, laboratory and radiological findings, and extent of disease. Seven patients did not respond to resuscitative measures and were treated by percutaneous drainage with a uniformly fatal outcome. For patients who could be made fit for surgery, the only absolute predictor of survival was extent of disease...

Respiratory distress and a total airway obstruction in an newborn was caused by a mobile tumour in the pharynx. Urgently it had to be fixed with holding suture under traction. Surgical resection revealed a bipartial hairy tumour based on the lateral pharyngeal side of the soft palate. The histologic examination showed: fat tissue, cornified epidermis and sebaceous glands, but no further signs of teratoma. Further complications as Pneumothorax and necrotising entercolitis could be managed.
