UNLABELLED A synchronous relationship between the menstrual cycle and lunar rhythm was confirmed by: Investigative data: Among the 826 female volunteers with a normal menstrual cycle, aged between 16 and 25 years, a large proportion of menstruations occurred around the new moon (28.3%), while at other times during the lunar month the proportion of(More)
OBJECTIVES The goal of this study was to delineate outcomes of children weighing <10 kg supported with the Berlin Heart EXCOR Pediatric Ventricular Assist Device (EXCOR Pediatric, Berlin Heart Inc., The Woodlands, Texas) and to identify factors that increased the risk of all-cause mortality in this population. BACKGROUND Ventricular assist devices have(More)
BACKGROUND Heart transplantation remains a resource-intensive therapy for children. However, data regarding change in costs over time are scarce. We tested the hypothesis that hospital charges for pediatric heart transplant hospitalizations would increase from 1997 to 2006 and assessed factors associated with hospital charges. METHODS A retrospective(More)
BACKGROUND Although evidence links HLA allele mismatching to worse outcomes in pediatric heart transplantation, no studies to our knowledge have applied the quantification of structural HLA differences between donor and recipient to risk evaluation. We examine the association between molecular-level HLA mismatching and long-term graft loss in pediatric(More)
Thoracoscopic mobilization of the esophagus for pharyngolaryngoesophagectomy allows dissection under direct vision, and therefore it potentially results in fewer complications than conventional transhiatal mobilization. In this article we report our experience with this approach. It was also hypothesized that a learning curve existed and that results have(More)
BACKGROUND Allograft rejection and long-term immunosuppression remain significant challenges in pediatric heart transplantation. Pediatric recipients are known to have fewer rejection episodes and to develop more allergic conditions than adults. A T-helper 2 cell dominant phenotype, manifested clinically by allergies and an elevated eosinophil count, may be(More)
An infant with Down's syndrome was noted to have hypoxemia and tachypnea at birth. The clinical examination, electrocardiogram (ECG) and the chest X-ray findings suggested a specific diagnosis that is not usually associated with Down's syndrome. Despite the extremely rare association of Ebstein's anomaly with Down's syndrome, this diagnosis was highly(More)
The effect of donor-recipient sex matching on long-term survival in pediatric heart transplantation is not well known. Adult data have shown worse survival when male recipients receive a sex-mismatched heart, with conflicting results in female recipients. We analyzed 5795 heart transplant recipients ≤ 18 yr in the Scientific Registry of Transplant(More)
