BACKGROUND/AIM This study was conducted to provide sonographic measurements of the abdominal esophagus length in neonates and infants with and without gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and to investigate its diagnostic value. GERD severity was also evaluated and correlated with esophageal length. It is a prospective case-control study. MATERIALS AND(More)
Objective: To see the effects of magnesium sulphate in newborn with persistent pulmonary hypertension of newborn (PPHN) who did not respond to mechanical hyperventilation and are candidate for Extra Corporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO). Methodology: Ten newborn who were admitted to Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) with profound hypoxia and respiratory(More)
OBJECTIVE The incidence of Transient Tachypnea of Newborn (TTN) is higher in infants born by cesarean section than with  vaginal delivery. Treatment of transient tachypnea of newborn is supportive. The purpose of this study was to assess the effect of restricted fluid volume intake on the course of respiratory distress in patients with TTN. METHODS This(More)
BACKGROUND In addition to surfactant deficiency, increase of lung fluid content and secretion of fluid derived from the blood participate in the pathogenesis of RDS in newborns. We hypothesized that the administration of salbutamol (β-agonist) to increase lung fluid absorption would decrease the INSURE failure rate in newborns with respiratory distress(More)
BACKGROUND This study aimed to evaluate the radiation dose received by premature neonates using diagnostic radiographies. METHODS This cross-sectional study was conducted on 116 premature neonates with gestational age from 25 to 37 weeks; with the diagnosis of neonatal respiratory distress syndrome (NRDS) and tachypnea, they were admitted to a neonatal(More)
INTRODUCTION The pathogenesis of congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is not clear. Risk factors including environmental factors have been implicated in the pathogenesis of few congenital anomalies. We aimed to assess the effect of season on the incidence of CDH and mortality rate in the southwest of Iran. MATERIAL AND METHODS In this retrospective(More)
Objective: To investigate the outcomes of macrosomia and compare the risk factors associated with neonatal and maternal complications between mothers with gestational diabetes (GDM) and Non-GDM mothers, and determine whether it is important to screen for GDM before birth. Methodology: We sampled the venous blood of the mothers of 120 macrosomic neonates in(More)
Background: Neonatal jaundice is the most common complaint in the early days of birth that can potentially results in important and irreversible effects. The aim of this study was to evaluate the severity and outcome of jaundice in newborns with ABO and Rhesus (Rh) incompatibility and glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency. Methods: Data of(More)
Introduction: The elevated Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin Concentration (MCHC) were reported in neonates with hereditary spherocytosis. Aims: The aim of this study was to assess the reliability of elevated MCHC as a screening test for the diagnosis of hereditary spherocytosis in newborns. Methods and Material: We revised records of 1301 neonates with diagnosis(More)
