Our objectives were to determine clinical characteristics and outcome of severely head-injured children admitted to the pediatric intensive care unit (PICU) of a pediatric third-level university hospital and to evaluate the(More)
OBJECT The authors evaluated the initial intracranial pressure (ICP) and cerebral perfusion pressure (CPP) as prognostic factors in severe head injury in children and tried to determine the optimal CPP range. METHODS The authors performed a 9-year retrospective review of all patients with severe traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) who required invasive ICP(More)

In 2015, the WHO reported 1 million cases of paediatric TB and 169,000(More)
Zidovudine (ZDV) has been associated with risk of haematological toxicity. Safety data from clinical trials is generally limited to 48 weeks. We assessed the short- and mid-term toxicity of ZDV/lamivudine (3TC) fixed-dose combination scored tablets in HIV-infected children followed in the European Pregnancy and Paediatric HIV Cohort Collaboration (EPPICC)(More)
