This study was an investigation of a possible correlation between either the gestational age (GA) and type of brain injury or between the gestational age and type, distribution and severity of cerebral palsy (CP). Four hundred sixty-one children with a birthweight > or = 1250 g and GA > or = 30 weeks with a complicated neonatal period and/or brain injury on(More)
The aim of this review is to determine the relationship between gestational age (GA) and prevalence, type, distribution, and severity of cerebral palsy (CP). Epidemiological studies with cohorts expressed by GA were assessed. A comprehensive meta-analysis and meta-regression was performed on four fetal age categories. Studies of children with CP as a target(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze trends in the incidence and pathogen distribution of healthcare-associated bloodstream infections (HABSIs) over a 20-year period (1992-2011). DESIGN Historical cohort study. SETTING Thirty-two-bed neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) in a tertiary referral hospital. PATIENTS Neonates with HABSIs defined according to the criteria of(More)
We report three siblings, two of whom had a neuropathological study, with a new subtype of congenital ponto-cerebellar atrophy (PCH). In addition to the brain stem and cerebellar anomalies common to all types of this heterogeneous condition, there were unique developmental defects in the telencephalon: absence of the claustrum, diffuse cortical changes(More)
From the history of 15 personal patients--8 reported here in extenso--and from 63 patients in the literature with the diagnosis of posterior fossa subdural haemorrhage during life, we discuss the possibility of detecting tentorial damage on computed tomography (CT) and ultrasound (US) scan. The association of a (peri)cerebellar haemorrhage with(More)
Congenital high airway obstruction syndrome (CHAOS) is a rare prenatal diagnosis consisting of a typical fetal triad of large hyperechogenic lungs, flattened or inverted diaphragms and ascites. Most cases are sporadic with unknown incidence. Before attempts of fetoscopic fetal salvage or ex utero intrapartum treatment (EXIT) are considered, additional(More)
INTRODUCTION In neonates and small infants, early diagnosis of central diabetes insipidus (CDI) and treatment with desmopressin in low doses (avoiding severe hypo- or hypernatremia) are important to prevent associated high morbidity and mortality in this particular age group. CASE PRESENTATION We described pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic results of(More)
