We report on four cases of neonatal-onset hyperammonemia due to metabolic disorders treated with continuous hemodiafiltration (CHDF). CHDF accomplished prompt removal of serum ammonia under very stable circulation. To overcome the various difficulties of blood purification procedures to the neonate, we used: (1) a 7-Fr double lumen catheter from the(More)
BACKGROUND There is no information on heart failure (HF) with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF, EF >50%) in children. METHODS AND RESULTS Through a retrospective review of 3,907 pediatric patients with cardiovascular disease, we examined the characteristics of pediatric HFpEF over a 10-year period.
