Background. Glucocorticoids have been used successfully in the amelioration of chronic lung disease (CLD). Unfortunately, higher risk of adverse neurological outcome has been reported in newborns treated with systemic steroids. The ideal treatment of CLD would be a topical steroid with a low absorption given directly to the alveoli so improving clinical(More)
Extremely-low-birth-weight infants (ELBW) should be given nutrients to enable them to grow at the same rate as foetuses of the same gestational age, and lean body components, particularly the brain, are dependent on protein intake. Fortified human milk remains the best food for these preterms. Two groups of preterm infants weighing 580-1250 g and with a(More)
Introduction: several neuropathological studies have documented brain damage following hypoglycaemia. In a few cases damage has been reported in vivo using CT, MRI and US. Here we report a functional and anatomic study of the brain in a case of transient symptomatic hypoglycaemia.Case report: term newborn, AS 9–10, LGA, of a non-diabetic primigravida was(More)
Introduction. Prediction of outcome in HIE could be very useful in counselling parents and selecting patients for possible therapeutic intervention. To compare the predictive performance of various diagnostic tools for identifying infants at risk of developing neurological sequelae we are performing a prospective follow-up study in newborns with(More)
Preterm newborns frequently have a slow postnatal growth and a close relationship between growth and both energy and protein intake has been demonstrated. The evaluation of the protein content of breast milk after a preterm delivery, using a quick and simple method, could be very useful to decide how to reach preterm nutritional needs. To evaluate the(More)
