OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to use a scoring system for high-resolution CT in the evaluation of radiologic findings in young people born extremely preterm and to examine the reproducibility of this scoring system. SUBJECTS AND METHODS High-resolution CT of the lungs was assessed in 72 children born at a gestational age of < or = 28 weeks or(More)
OBJECTIVE We conducted a blinded, randomized, controlled trial to examine whether mildly dysplastic but stable or instable hips would benefit from early treatment, as compared with watchful waiting.

Purpose: The natural history of antenatally detected asymptomatic lung malformations is unknown. We present our experience of conservative management. Materials and Methods: Review of pre and postnatal course of all congenital lung malformations referred to a tertiary level fetal medicine unit from January 1995 to September 2006. Results: 52 patients were(More)
