Cardiovascular instability in preterm infants during the early postnatal period correlates with the development of intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH). Due to the correlation between hypotension and fluctuation of blood pressure, treatment especially aimed at hypotension has been attempted to prevent IVH. However, these attempts have seemed to result in failure. Recently, several novel perfusion markers have been found to be correlated with the development of IVH, and they are of current interest in cardiovascular management...

OBJECTIVES: The Berlin Heart EXCOR ® (EXCOR) paediatric ventricular assist device is used worldwide for mechanical support of infants and small children with end-stage heart failure. A clinically important gap between the smallest EXCOR blood pump (10 ml) and the next larger size (25 ml) limited the choice of pump size in patients with a body surface area (BSA) between 0.33 and 0.5 m 2 . We present the first clinical experience from the early product surveillance (EPS) of the new EXCOR 15-ml blood pump...

Context: Early-onset obesity, characteristic for disorders affecting the leptin-melanocortin pathway, is also observed in pseudohypoparathyroidism type Ia (PHP1A), a disorder caused by maternal GNAS mutations that disrupt expression or function of the stimulatory G protein (Gsα). Mutations and/or epigenetic abnormalities at the same genetic locus are also the cause of pseudohypoparathyroidism type Ib (PHP1B). However, although equivalent biochemical and radiographic findings can be encountered in these related disorders caused by GNAS abnormalities they are considered distinct clinical entities...

Rising pertussis incidence has prompted a number of countries to implement maternally-targeted vaccination to protect vulnerable infants, but questions remain about optimal design of such vaccination strategies. We simulated pertussis transmission within an individual based model parameterized to match Australian conditions, explicitly linking infants and their mothers to estimate the effectiveness of alternative maternally-targeted vaccination strategies (antenatal versus postnatal delivery) and the benefit of revaccination over multiple pregnancies...

Cardiac rhabdomyoma, a type of benign myocardial tumor, is regarded as the most common fetal cardiac tumor. Rhabdomyomas are usually found before birth or during the first year of life. It is widely accepted that rhabdomyomas are strongly associated with tuberous sclerosis, and tend to regress spontaneously without surgical excision. However, if the tumor has caused significant obstruction or refractory arrhythmias, the surgery should be advocated. Most of the surgeries for pediatric cardiac tumors are performed under cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) with cardioplegia...

BACKGROUND: We have previously shown that maternal cow's milk (CM) elimination results in down-regulation of CM-specific IgA antibody levels in BM, but not in serum, suggesting that an entero-mammary link may exist for food-specific antibody-secreting cells. OBJECTIVE: We sought to investigate whether food-specific IgA epitope profiles differ intra-individually between mother's serum and BM. We also examined how infants' food epitope-specific IgA develops in early infancy and the relationship of IgA epitope recognition with development of cow's milk allergy (CMA)...

Rapid growth in infancy has been shown to adversely affect iron status up to 1 year; however the effect of growth on iron status in the second year of life has been largely unexplored. We aimed to investigate the impact of growth and body size in the first 2 years on iron status at 2 years. In the prospective, maternal-infant Cork BASELINE Birth Cohort Study, infant weight and length were measured at birth, 2, 6, 12, and 24 months and absolute weight (kg) and length (cm) gain from 0 to 2, 0 to 6, 0 to 12, 6 to 12, 12 to 24, and 0 to 24 months were calculated...

Premastication of infant food by caregivers is common in Laos. Premastication is hypothesized to have both positive and negative implications for children, but the net effect of premastication on child health and nutrition is largely unknown because of a lack of research. This study quantitatively describes premastication in 5 provinces of Laos and examines the associations between premastication and the length of young children. We analyzed cross-sectional data from the Laos 2015 Food and Nutrition Security Survey to characterize premastication among children under 2 years of age (n = 1,661) and to test associations between premastication and child length-for-age z-score...

The quality of father-child interactions has become a focus of increasing research in the field of child development. We examined the potential contribution of father-child interactions at both 3 months and 24 months to children's cognitive development at 24 months. Observational measures of father-child interactions at 3 and 24 months were used to assess the quality of fathers' parenting (n = 192). At 24 months, the Mental Developmental Index (MDI) of the Bayley Scales of Infant Development, Second Edition (N...

The present study examined the effect of meals varying in amount, size, and hardness of food pieces on the development of the chewing capabilities of 8-month-old infants. The study also examined changes in shivering, gagging, coughing, choking, and their ability to eat from a spoon. In an in-home setting two groups were given commercially available infant meals and fruits, purees with either less, smaller and softer or more, larger and harder pieces. Both groups were given these foods for 4 weeks and were monitored several times during this period...

INTRODUCTION: Among women with a fetus in non-cephalic presentation, external cephalic version (ECV) has been shown to reduce the rate of breech presentation at birth and cesarean birth. Compared to ECV at term, beginning ECV prior to 37 weeks gestation decreases the number of infants in a non-cephalic presentation at birth. The purpose of this secondary analysis was to investigate factors associated with a successful ECV procedure and to present this in a clinically useful format. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Data were collected as part of the Early ECV Pilot and Early ECV2 Trials, which randomised 1,776 women with a fetus in breech presentation to either early ECV (34 to 36 weeks gestation) or delayed ECV (at or after 37 weeks)...

Racial disparities in cardiovascular disease mortality in the United States remain substantial. However, the childhood roots of these disparities are not well understood. In the current study, we examined racial differences in blood pressure trajectories across early childhood in a sample of African-American and European-American low-birth-weight preterm infants. Family and neighborhood socioeconomic status (SES), measured at baseline, were also examined as explanations for subsequent group disparities. Analyses focused on 407 African-American and 264 European-American children who participated in the Infant Health and Development Program, a US longitudinal study of preterm children born in 1985...

BACKGROUND: Maternal cannabis use in pregnancy is linked with long-term adverse behavioral outcomes in offspring. Epigenetic processes established in utero that affect dopaminergic (reward) signaling may mediate risks. Associations between cannabis use and offspring DNA methylation have not been investigated; however, maternal tobacco smoking in pregnancy is associated with distinct patterns of DNA methylation at birth and beyond. OBJECTIVES: To determine whether maternal cannabis use is associated with methylation of the dopamine receptor gene DRD4 promoter in infants...

INTRODUCTION: The suspected diagnosis of a Toddler's fracture can often be complicated by an unclear history, the lack of specific clinical findings and the absence of obvious changes in the initial radiographs. We present the case of an infant of 3 years and 7 months old with a history of falling from her own height with a rotation mechanism of the left pelvic limb. The purpose of this paper is to describe the etiopathology, diagnosis and therapeutic management of these fractures. DISCUSSION: The clinical history, physical examination and the use of imaging studies help identify Toddler's fractures, pathology that must be known to medical specialists for an ideal treatment...
