A retrospective review of cases of necrotizing enterocolitis seen at the Children's Hospital National Medical Center during the past 5 years was performed to identify factors that indicate a need for surgical intervention. The study group consisted of 92 neonates. Persistent acidosis and hepatoportal venous gas were significantly more common in babies(More)
BACKGROUND/PURPOSE Telemedicine affords the opportunity to extend the presence of surgical evaluation to centers without an on-site pediatric surgeon. However, concern for cost, accuracy of diagnosis, and physician acceptance have limited its use. METHODS Using a low-cost, desktop computer-based system, this study was designed to test the effectiveness of(More)
The purpose of this study was to discover whether sensorineural hearing loss was a significant complication in survivors of persistent fetal circulation. Eleven patients were followed to 36 months. Hearing assessments were performed on at least two occasions using brain stem auditory evoked response testing and behavioral audiometry. Three of 11 babies had(More)
An unusual case of a newborn infant with four umbilical arteries is presented. Multiple catheterizations revealed that triplication of the right umbilical artery was responsible. There were no associated malformations, and follow-up at 9 months of age revealed age-appropriate growth and development. This case extends the spectrum of observable umbilical(More)
To test the hypothesis that increasing survival of infants at highest risk for long-term neurological sequelae has strengthened the associations between perinatal events and subsequent cerebral palsy (CP), we compared the prevalence rates for prematurity, low birthweight, congenital malformations, and perinatal asphyxia from a current population of children(More)
To determine the developmental outcome of premature infants weighing 1,750 gm or less at birth and who had grade III intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH), we followed up ten infants with IVH confirmed by computed tomography (CT) and ten CT-negative control infants until they were 12 months corrected age. The infants were evaluated at three-month intervals with(More)
