Identification of newborn babies with fetal growth restriction remains a problem both from the multi-factorial aspect of fetal growth and from statistical definition. Besides the usual terms: "Small for gestational age" (SGA) and intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR), often used synonymously, the term "fetal growth retardation" was recently introduced in(More)
This study was carried out to build statistical models for defining FGR (Fetal Growth Restriction) in weight and/or length after taking growth potential of an infant into account. From a cohort of pregnant women having given birth to 47,733 infants in 141 French maternity units, two statistical models gave individualized limits of birth weight and birth(More)
There are some evidence to suggest that careful antenatal monitoring, scheduled preterm delivery and immediate abdominal wall closure may reduce gastroschisis morbidity. We hypothesised that the advantages of a scheduled preterm delivery balance possible complications related to prematurity. A retrospective study was performed including all cases of(More)
Currently, congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation of the lung (CCAM) is often diagnosed antenatally by ultrasound, allowing prompt and appropriate medical and surgical management after birth. The authors report 21 cases of CCAM admitted from 1988 to 1997 to a neonatal intensive care unit and treated by high-frequency oscillation (HFO) and early surgery.(More)
UNLABELLED We conducted a pilot study to assess the prevalence of hypovitaminosis D among Iranian women and their newborns. Blood samples were taken from 50 mothers (age 16-40 yr) and their neonates at term delivery in the largest Tehran hospital. The results showed that 80% of the women had 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25-OHD) concentrations of less than 25(More)
BACKGROUND Fetal growth restriction (FGR) followed by rapid weight gain during early life has been suggested to be the initial sequence promoting central adiposity and insulin resistance. However, the link between fetal and early postnatal growth and the associated anthropometric and metabolic changes have been poorly studied. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL(More)
OBJECTIVE Few accurate data are available on the outcome of septic shock in the neonatal period. The objective was to describe outcome and to determine variables associated with death or adverse outcome in neonates with septic shock. DESIGN Retrospective cohort study. SETTING A tertiary neonatal intensive care unit in a university hospital. PATIENTS(More)
BACKGROUND Coagulase-negative staphylococci, mainly Staphylococcus epidermidis, are the most frequent cause of late-onset sepsis (LOS) in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) setting. However, recent reports indicate that methicillin-resistant, vancomycin-heteroresistant Staphylococcus capitis could emerge as a significant pathogen in the NICU. We(More)
The body composition of 70 appropriate for gestational age newborn infants whose gestational age ranged from 32 to 41 weeks was determined by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry during the first 48 h of life. The evolution of the bone mineral content, fat and lean mass was well correlated with gestational age (r = 0.66, r = 0.66 and r = 0.82, respectively) but(More)
