Surgical intestinal disorders (SID), such as necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC), focal intestinal perforation (FIP), and meconium-related ileus (MRI), are serious morbidities in extremely low birth weight (ELBW, birth weight <1000 g) infants. From 2010, we performed enteral antifungal prophylaxis (EAP) in ELBWI to prevent for SID. The aim of this study was to(More)
We present a case of afferent loop syndrome (ALS) occurring after pancreaticoduodenectomy (PD) in a patient who had previously undergone total gastrectomy (TG), and review the English-language literature concerning reconstruction procedures following PD in patients who had undergone TG. The patient was a 69-year-old man who had undergone TG reconstruction(More)
We investigated the developmental changes in the unaffected contralateral lungs of patients with isolated left-sided congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) using signal intensity ratios on prenatal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and determined whether these changes correlated with clinical outcomes. We performed 47 fetal MRI screens on 30 patients with(More)
Introduction: Portomesenteric venous thrombosis (PMVT) is a rare and often fatal disease that is difficult to diagnose. The symptoms are nonspecific, and diagnosis and initial treatment tend to be delayed. The initial treatment strategy for PMVT has recently tended toward the use of conservative methods before surgical intervention, and most patients can be(More)
Reports of cow's milk allergy (CMA) after neonatal gastrointestinal surgery have recently increased. In recent years it has been suggested that the development of CMA after gastrointestinal surgery in newborn infants is due to an immune function. In addition, the development of CMA might be synergistically exacerbated by congenital abnormalities of the(More)
BACKGROUND The use of laparoscopic percutaneous extraperitoneal closure (LPEC) for pediatric inguinal hernia has recently been increasing. Recurrence and contralateral metachronous inguinal hernia (CMIH) are important problems for LPEC. This study analyzed the risk factors for recurrence and CMIH. METHODS This study included 1530 patients. The mean(More)
This study investigated risk factors for developmental disorders after the repair of esophageal atresia with tracheoesophageal fistula (EA/TEF). The clinical charts of all infants with EA/TEF (gross type C) treated at our institution between 1993 and 2013 were analyzed. Patients with chromosomal aberrations were excluded. Forty-seven patients were divided(More)
