Management bronchopulmonary dysplasia

Kathleen A Kennedy, C Michael Cotten, Kristi L Watterberg, Waldemar A Carlo
Despite remarkable improvements in survival of extremely premature infants, the burden of BPD among survivors remains a frustrating problem for parents and caregivers. Advances, such as antenatal steroids and surfactant replacement, which have dramatically improved survival, have not reduced BPD among survivors. Other advances that have significantly improved the combined outcome of death or BPD, such as vitamin A and avoidance of mechanical ventilation, have had smaller magnitude effects on the outcome of BPD alone...

BACKGROUND: Intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR) is a major risk factor for perinatal mortality and morbidity. Thus, there is a compelling need to introduce sensitive measures to detect IUGR fetuses. Routine third trimester ultrasonography is increasingly used to detect IUGR. However, we lack evidence for its clinical effectiveness and cost-effectiveness and information on ethical considerations of additional third trimester ultrasonography. This nationwide stepped wedge cluster-randomized trial examines the (cost-)effectiveness of routine third trimester ultrasonography in reducing severe adverse perinatal outcome through subsequent protocolized management...

: Less invasive surfactant therapies (LIST) use surfactant instillation through a thin tracheal catheter in spontaneously breathing infants. This review and meta-analysis investigates respiratory outcomes for preterm infants with respiratory distress syndrome treated with LIST rather than administration of surfactant through an endotracheal tube. Randomised controlled trial (RCT) full texts provided outcome data for bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD), death or BPD, early CPAP failure, invasive ventilation requirements and usual neonatal morbidities...

Pulmonary hypertension (PH) secondary to bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) in infants remains a serious concern and continues to cause significant morbidity despite improvements in both quality of life and survival for patients. One of the potential agents that might help is sildenafil citrate, a phosphodiesterase-V inhibitor used a first line therapy for idiopathic PH. However, only limited evidence exists for its use as either monotherapy or part of a combination approach towards the management of PH in BPD...

Objective To assess trends in patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) management and examine concurrent changes in neonatal mortality and morbidities. Methods This retrospective observational study examined infants born at 23 to 32 weeks' gestational age with PDA and admitted to a neonatal unit during 2006 to 2012. Multivariable logistic regression assessed trends in yearly PDA treatment rates and compared a composite outcome of mortality or any severe morbidity (bronchopulmonary dysplasia, intraventricular hemorrhage, periventricular leukomalacia, retinopathy of prematurity, or necrotizing enterocolitis) between and within time periods and PDA treatments...

Despite notable advances in the survival and management of preterm infants in recent decades, chronic lung disease remains a common complication. Approximately one in three infants born preterm (< 32 weeks of gestation) are hospitalized with respiratory problems (mainly due to infections) in their first 2 years of life, and the risk of childhood wheezing is three times higher in this population. By comparison with infants born at term, there seems to be a higher incidence of respiratory morbidity in those born preterm, even in the absence of bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) and in late-preterm babies...

BACKGROUND: The substantial risk of iron overload is not routinely monitored in most of the neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) in Japan; however, blood transfusion is an essential strategy for successfully treating preterm low-birth-weight infants. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to investigate the iron status and clinical features of infants with a birth weight of <1,500 g, i.e. very-low-birth-weight infants (VLBWIs). METHODS: This prospective observational study enrolled 176 (82...

BACKGROUND: Noninvasive ventilation is being increasingly used on preterm infants to reduce ventilator lung injury and bronchopulmonary dysplasia. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of synchronized nasal intermittent positive pressure ventilation (SNIPPV) to prevent intubation in premature infants. METHODS: Prospective observational study of SNIPPV use on preterm infants of less than 32 weeks' gestation. All patients were managed using a prospective protocol intended to reduce invasive mechanical ventilation (iMV) use...

PURPOSE: To determine the feasibility of pulmonary magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of neonatal lung structures enabled by combining two novel technologies: first, a 3D radial ultrashort echo time (UTE) pulse sequence capable of high spatial resolution full-chest imaging in nonsedated quiet-breathing neonates; and second, a unique, small-footprint 1.5T MRI scanner design adapted for neonatal imaging and installed within the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Ten patients underwent MRI within the NICU, in accordance with an approved Institutional Review Board protocol...

BACKGROUND: Preterm birth and respiratory support with invasive mechanical ventilation frequently leads to bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD). A hallmark feature of BPD is alveolar simplification. For our preterm lamb model of BPD, invasive mechanical ventilation is associated with postnatal feeding intolerance (reduced nutrition) and sedation. In contrast, preterm lambs managed by non-invasive support (NIS) have normal alveolar formation, appropriate postnatal nutrition, and require little sedation...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Data from clinical trials support the use of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) for initial respiratory management in preterm infants, but there is concern regarding the potential failure of CPAP support. We aimed to examine the incidence and explore the outcomes of CPAP failure in Australian and New Zealand Neonatal Network data from 2007 to 2013. METHODS: Data from inborn preterm infants managed on CPAP from the outset were analyzed in 2 gestational age ranges (25-28 and 29-32 completed weeks)...

Background The clinical needs of infants with severe bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) that remain ventilator-dependent are complex, and management strategies that optimize survival and long-term outcomes controversial. We hypothesized that an interdisciplinary ventilator care program (VCP), committed to the care of this population will improve survival through standardized approaches to cardiopulmonary care and related comorbidities, enhanced communication, and continuity of care. Methods Retrospective chart reviews were performed on patients at Children's Hospital Colorado's neonatal intensive care unit, who underwent tracheostomy placement between 2000 and 2013...

BACKGROUND: To investigate strategies used for the management of respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) and bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) in extremely low birth weight (ELBW) infants. METHODS: A survey of neonatal specialists working in US academic institutions with fellowship training programs. RESULTS: Eighty percent (72/89) of the identified academic institutions had at least one physician who responded to the survey. Among respondents, 85% (171/201) agreed or strongly agreed to use continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) initially for the management of RDS, and the majority agreed or strongly agreed to use a fraction of inspired oxygen (FiO2) ≥0...

A noninvasive approach in the delivery room in place of intubation and mechanical ventilation can reduce rates of bronchopulmonary dysplasia and death. Nevertheless, the rate of nasal continuous positive airway pressure failure still remains high. In order to prevent lung injury and to enhance the success of continuous positive airway pressure, sustained inflation (administration by face mask or nasopharyngeal tube of a high peak pressure of 20-25 cm H2O, maintained for 10-15 s) has been recently proposed to establish an early and efficient functional residual capacity in the delivery room...

AIM: We assessed the outcomes of ventilated extremely premature infants treated with late postnatal corticosteroids from 2005-2008, according to permissive or restrictive policies in two centres. METHODS: This retrospective study included inborn infants below 27 weeks of gestational age who were ventilator dependent after 14 days. Centre P permitted postnatal corticosteroids but centre R restricted their use. The effects on infants were assessed in hospital and after two years using multivariable analysis...

While diagnoses of hypoxemic respiratory failure (HRF) and pulmonary hypertension (PH) in preterm infants may be based on criteria similar to those in term infants, management approaches often differ. In preterm infants, HRF can be classified as 'early' or 'late' based on an arbitrary threshold of 28 postnatal days. Among preterm infants with late HRF, the pulmonary vascular abnormalities associated with bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) represent a therapeutic challenge for clinicians. Surfactant, inhaled nitric oxide (iNO), sildenafil, prostacyclin and endothelin receptor blockers have been used to manage infants with both early and late HRF...

Recommendations based on current publications are presented for postnatal preterm nutrition, depending on birth weight: less 1000g, between 1000 and 1500g, and above 1500g, as well for the development periods: adaptation, stabilisation, and growth. A review is also presented on the nutritional management of morbidities that affect or may affect nutrition, such as: osteopenia, bronchopulmonary dysplasia, patent ductus arteriosus, red cell transfusion, and short bowel syndrome.
