Endothelial caveolin-1 loss is an important feature of pulmonary hypertension (PH); the rescue of caveolin-1 abrogates experimental PH. Recent studies in human PH suggest that the endothelial caveolin-1 loss is followed by an enhanced expression of caveolin-1 in smooth muscle cells (SMC) with subsequent neointima formation. In order to evaluate caveolin-1(More)
OBJECTIVE To explore possible spinal cord dysfunction in clinically unaffected newborns emerging from fetal distress, using H-Reflex. METHODS This cross-sectional study comprised 48 full-term newborn infants investigated between 8h and 10 days after birth. Twenty-one (21) had fetal distress defined by late-decelerations in fetal heart rate, out of which(More)
Inborn errors of fatty acid metabolism are important causes of reversible cardiomyopathy in infancy. Disorders in long chain fatty acid oxidation can lead to cardiomyopathy, as fatty acid beta oxidation is the major source of myocardial energy after birth. We present 2 cases of such disorders with cardiac manifestations during infancy, which responded well(More)
Closure of a systemic to pulmonary shunt in premature infants with bronchopulmonary dysplasia may be beneficial, but in the presence of pulmonary hypertension is controversial. Here, we discuss two premature infants with pulmonary hypertension who developed acute pulmonary hypertensive crisis after closure of these shunts and hence advise caution.
OBJECTIVE To demonstrate the accelerated postnatal maturation/myelination in growth retarded babies compensating the deficit suffered by them during intrauterine life. METHODS We studied 16 babies within the first 3 days of birth. These included 6 full term appropriate for gestational age babies (FT AGA) and 10 full term intrauterine growth retarded (FT(More)
Breast milk feeding has advantages over formula feeding in premature infants, but its use in them is low. We initiated measures in our inner-city hospital such as starting a dedicated lactation service, counseling the mothers prenatally and postnatally, educating hospital staff, and advocating with our state's Medicaid insurance to provide free home breast(More)
Objectives Trisomy 18 is presumed to be a lethal chromosomal abnormality; medical management of infants with this aneuploidy is controversial. Our objective was to describe our approach and experience with trisomy 18 infants. Study Design We reviewed the initial hospital course, management, and factors predicting discharge from the hospital from two large(More)
Rhabdomyomas are the most common cardiac tumours in children. They sometimes cause significant obstruction of the ventricular out flow tracts. We report a series of 3 neonates diagnosed antenatally with multiple rhabdomyomas, who developed significant obstruction of the ventricular outflow tracts following birth. They underwent surgical resection in the(More)
