PURPOSE To retrospectively evaluate the accuracy of the absolute fetal lung volume (FLV) measured at magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and seven formulas for calculating relative FLV to predict neonatal survival and the need for extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) in fetuses with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH). MATERIALS AND METHODS This(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the prognostic accuracy of a new MRI-based relative lung-to-head ratio in regard to neonatal survival and need for extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) in the care of fetuses with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) and to compare it with the previously described sonographic relative lung-to-head(More)
PURPOSE To prospectively assess the results of logistic regression analysis that were based on magnetic resonance (MR) image fetal lung volume (FLV) measurements to predict survival and the corresponding need for extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) therapy in fetuses with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) before and after 30 weeks gestation.

BACKGROUND Despite the ultrasound (US) based lung-to-head ratio (LHR) and first results of fetal lung volume (FLV) determination in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), there is no reliable prenatal parameter for the clinical course and outcome of fetuses with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH), in particular for the need of extracorporeal membrane(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of our study was to prospectively assess, using MRI and MR angiography, the cerebral and vascular status of 2-year-old children with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) in whom carotid artery reconstruction was performed after neonatal extra-corporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) therapy and to compare the neurologic development of(More)
Die Ergebnisse nach operativ behandelten dislozierten, distalen Radiusfrakturen sind begrenzt. Dabei korrelieren die radiographischen Ergebnisse nicht gut mit den funktionellen Ergebnissen. Diese Tatsache legt die Vermutung nahe, dass radiographisch nicht darstellbare, zusätzliche karpale Primärläsionen dafür verantwortlich sind. Die vorliegende Studie soll(More)
PURPOSE To prospectively assess the reliability of magnetic resonance (MR) image volume measurement in fetuses with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) and the reliability and validity of measurements in in vitro lung models. MATERIALS AND METHODS This study was approved by the ethics committee, and informed consent was obtained. MR fetal lung volume(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to use logistic regression analysis of prenatal MRI fetal lung volume measurements to calculate mortality and the need for extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) therapy among fetuses with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH). SUBJECTS AND METHODS The fetal lung volume measurements of 65 fetuses with CDH were(More)
PURPOSE To assess whether chronic lung disease (CLD) in surviving infants with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is associated with lung hypoplasia on the basis of the results of antenatal observed-to-expected fetal lung volume (FLV) ratio measurement at magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study received approval from the(More)
BACKGROUND Systemic Candidia infections are of major concern in neonates, especially in those with risk factors such as longer use of broad spectrum antibiotics. Recent studies showed that also term babies with underlying gastrointestinal or urinary tract abnormalities are much more prone to systemic Candida infection. We report a very rare case of(More)
