The administration of a single intravenous injection of indomethacin was followed by a major constrictive effect on the ductus in 36 of 42 very-low-birth-weight (less than or equal to 1000 gm) infants with symptomatic patent ductus arteriosus (PDA). In 26 of the 36 responders, the effect was sustained; symptomatic PDA recurred in the remaining 10. Infants(More)
CONTEXT The Lhx3 LIM-homeodomain transcription factor gene is required for development of the pituitary and motoneurons in mice. Human LHX3 gene mutations have been reported in five subjects with a phenotype consisting of GH, prolactin, TSH, LH, and FSH deficiency; abnormal pituitary morphology; and limited neck rotation. OBJECTIVE The objective of the(More)
To determine if vascular abnormalities in preterm neonates might be related to vasoactive prostaglandins, stable prostacyclin (6-KPGF1 alpha) and thromboxane A2 (T X B2) metabolites in arterial blood were measured at less than or equal to 6 hours after birth and at 24, 48, and 72 hours using a radioimmunoassay. Neonates of less than 32 weeks gestation (N =(More)
One hundred and ten singleton breech infants with a birth-weight less than 2 500 g have been delivered at Huddinge University Hospital during the years 1972-78. The cesarean section rate was 30.1 per cent. Vaginal and abdominal deliveries were compared with regard to perinatal mortality and asphyxial morbidity at birth. All infants born with reduced Apgar(More)
The effects of pretreatment with methylprednisolone on the reaction to a toxin isolated from group B beta-hemolytic streptococci, type III, were studied in seven sheep instrumented for chronic measurements of pulmonary lymph flow and pulmonary artery and left atrial pressure. Each sheep was infused with toxin alone on one day and with methylprednisolone(More)
Three hundred and sixty-six consecutive singleton breech presentations were analyzed for clinical factors associated with fetal complications related to vaginal delivery, and for the impact of different cesarean section rates on the incidence of fetal complications. The condition at birth of the vaginally delivered (243 cases) infants was found to correlate(More)
