We studied the complications related to the use of 53 multipurpose silastic catheters (MSC) placed in 46 pediatric cancer patients over a 1-year period. We documented the longest duration of catheter placement in the pediatric oncology literature. There were 7,650 Broviac days (range, 9 to 365 days; mean, 163 days) with 255 patient months of catheter use(More)
We studied five pediatric solid tumor patients (age 13-72 mo.),(3 Wilms and 2 Rhabdomyosarcomas) treated with Vincristine and ACT-D (15 mcg/kg × 5 days) with or without Cyclophosphamide or Adriamycin. All five patients developed significant early thrombocytopenia (TCP) while on VAC.There was no significant difference in Absolute Granulocyte Count on day 5(More)
Isoimmune neonatal thrombocytopenia purpura (INTP) is a disease caused by platelet destruction by maternally derived antibody. Six patients were investigated. Maternal derived platelet transfusions in two patients resulted in posttransfusion platelet counts of greater than 85,000/microliter, a normal platelet survival of 7 to 10 days, and an early discharge(More)
Glucocorticoids are widely used in children as anti-inflammatory and cytoxic agents, controversially in acute respiratory distress syndrome and shock states. Their anti-inflammatory mechansim of action and the associated risk of infection is thought to be possibly secondary to PMN dysfunction. We comprehensively evaluated three anti-inflanmatory(More)
