BACKGROUND We hypothesized that the use of inhaled budesonide (BUD) would alter somatic growth by increasing energy expenditure (EE) in premature infants with chronic lung disease (CLD). METHODS A prospective study was conducted of the effect of BUD on EE, growth and salivary cortisol excretion in infants with CLD who required supplemental oxygen and were(More)
OBJECTIVE A prospective study was designed to evaluate the effects of high volume intake of mother's milk fortified (FMM) with an individualized supplementation of minerals and protein on tolerance, short-term somatic growth, serum concentrations of calcium, phosphorus, alkaline phosphatase, and total plasma protein in healthy preterm infants below 28 weeks(More)
BACKGROUND Infantile haemangiomas are benign vascular neoplasms that occur frequently in premature infants. The authors hypothesised that in addition to gestational age and birth weight, erythropoietin therapy may influence the incidence of these soft tissue tumours in preterm infants. METHODS 2563 infants born prematurely and admitted to the Division of(More)
A large ductus arteriosus aneurysm can lead to potentially serious and life-threatening complications. We report a case of aneurysmal dilatation of the ductus arteriosus in a premature infant that was successfully treated with indomethacin. Thus, surgical intervention with general anesthesia could be avoided.
Background: Recent studies indicate a strong functional relevance of the canonical inflammatory interleukin 6 signaling pathway in coronary artery disease (CAD). A genetic association of this signaling pathway with CAD has not been shown yet. We aimed to assess novel single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) from genes of the Interleukin 6 signaling pathway.(More)
