We utilized a newborn rat model of hypoxia/reoxygenation (H/R) that resembles human necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) to investigate the effects of omeprazole and/or gentamicin on the formation of free oxygen radicals (FOR) and bowel histopathology. For H/R, 1-day-old rats were placed into a chamber of 100% CO2 for 5 min, then they were reoxygenized for the(More)
Management of caustic ingestion in children is still controversial. In this study, we evaluate a minimally invasive management consisting of flexible endoscopy, balloon dilatation and intralesional steroid injection in children, with a history of caustic ingestion. Between April 2002 and January 2009, 350 (206 males and 144 females) children with a history(More)
A child with a superior lumbar hernia associated with the lumbocostovertebral syndrome is described. Congenital lumbar hernias are uncommon, with only 34 reported cases. Because of the difficulty of finding adequate tissue to repair these defects, we performed a prosthetic repair with a polytetrafluoroethylene (Gore-Tex) patch.
METHODS We presented 8 children with traumatic diaphragmatic ruptures who were admitted to our department within a 13 year period after the incident. Relevant information about clinical and radiological findings herniated organs into the thorax, type of injury and applied surgical intervention and outcome of patients were evaluated so as to draw important(More)
