We speculated that prophylactic ligation of the ductus arteriosus would reduce mortality and morbidity in very-low-birth-weight infants. To test this hypothesis, we randomly assigned 84 babies who weighed 1000 g or less at birth and required supplemental oxygen either to receive standard treatment (n = 44) or to undergo prophylactic surgical ligation of the(More)
BACKGROUND Previously we demonstrated the safety and patency of a magnetic compression anastomosis (magnamosis). We present the further development of this technique, with specific focus on optimizing device design for minimally invasive magnamosis. STUDY DESIGN The magnamosis device was designed to incorporate 3 features: 2 convex-concave radially(More)
PURPOSE The purposes of this investigation were to 1) measure success of a primary tooth pulpotomy technique that applies formocresol in the sub-base without the common five-minute application of a formocresol impregnated cotton pellet; and 2) compare success rates of the pulpotomy procedure using traditional criteria found throughout the literature with(More)

The authors present data supporting the conclusion that the transcutaneous bilirubin index may be a valuable tool to help distinguish term babies with a total serum bilirubin value less than 13 mg/dl from those with higher levels and that it serves as a valuable screening device to decrease the number of unnecessary total serum bilirubin tests.

Uncertainty exists whether the acute perioperative blood pressure changes associated with surgical closure of a PDA may cause or worsen IVH. Twenty infants undergoing PDA ligation had pre- and postoperative intracranial ultrasound studies performed within 24h of each other. The studies were read and graded (Papile classification) by one author (G.M.) who(More)
