OBJECTIVE To determine whether early versus late treatment with porcine surfactant (Curosurf) reduces the requirement of mechanical ventilation in very preterm infants primarily supported by nasal continuous positive airway pressure (nasal CPAP). DESIGN Multicenter randomized, controlled trial. PATIENTS The study population comprised 60 infants <30(More)
AIM The aim of this study was to estimate the incidence and identify independent risk factors for nosocomial infections in a Danish Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and to compare these findings with international results. METHODS The study was performed prospectively from January 1, 2005 to December 31, 2005 in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at(More)
INTRODUCTION Intensive care of infants below one year of age has been centralized in a paediatric intensive care unit (PICU) related to the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) at Rigshospitalet, the University Hospital in Copenhagen in eastern Denmark (approximately 2.5 million inhabitants) since 2002. The aim of this paper was to evaluate the experiences(More)
AIM To develop a rapid method for diagnosing lung maturity at birth with the purpose of administering surfactant early to infants with immature lungs and to spare infants with mature lungs from this treatment. METHODS Lamellar body counts (LBC) on gastric aspirates from 191 newborns were counted in the platelet window in automatic blood cell counters. A(More)
BACKGROUND We have developed a rapid method, based on lamellar body counts (LBC) on gastric aspirate, for identifying newborns who will develop respiratory distress syndrome with a need for surfactant supplementation. OBJECTIVE We set out to test whether it was possible to improve the outcome when used in a clinical trial. METHODS We randomly assigned(More)
Patients with periodontitis juvenilis and patients with periodontitis were tissue typed. In the juvenile group, frequencies of tissue type specificities HLA-A9, HLA-A28, and HLA-BW15 were significantly increased as compared to the findings in the general population. In the periodontitis groups, no significant tissue type deviations were found.
Serological and clinical data were collected in 59 cases of suspected neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia (NAIT) and in 24 thrombocytopenic newborn of mothers with presumed autoimmune thrombocytopenic purpura (AITP). In the NAIT group, the anti-HPA-la (anti-Zw(a), anti-Pl(AI)) and the anti-HPA-5b (anti-Br(a)) account for about 68% and 11% respectively of(More)
Twin anaemia-polycythaemia sequence (TAPS) is a rare form of feto-fetal transfusion between monochorionic twins. It occurs spontaneously or after laser surgery for twin-twin transfusion syndrome. TAPS is characterized by a large inter-twin haemoglobin difference and can be detected both ante- and postnatally. This is a case report of TAPS, detected(More)
