BACKGROUND Although the administration of levothyroxine sodium (LT4) to premature infants had been considered safe, several cases of late-onset circulatory collapse (LCC) following the administration of LT4 in very-low-birth-weight (VLBW) infants have been reported in Japan since 2008. This study was performed to investigate the incidence of LCC associated(More)
We report a patient with a neonatal seizure in whom diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) at 8 days of age revealed high-intensity areas in the genu and splenium of the corpus callosum. The patient was a 2-day-old girl born at 39 weeks of gestational age. No apparent signs of asphyxia were found at birth. Clinically, she had a clonic seizure of the left(More)
Fetal growth restriction (FGR) remains a cause of perinatal brain injury, sometimes leading to neurological and intellectual impairment. Although the mechanisms and pathophysiology of CNS injuries have not been elucidated completely, it is possible carbohydrate and energy metabolism may have an important role in the FGR brain. In this study, FGR was induced(More)
BACKGROUND During the last decade, new supportive modalities and new therapeutic strategies to treat congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) have been introduced. In Japan, the large number of hospitals prevents centralizing infants with CDH in tertiary centers. The aim of this study was to evaluate the correlations between the number of CDH patients,(More)
This study aimed to investigate whether the administration of mononuclear cells derived from human umbilical cord blood cells (UCBCs) could ameliorate hypoxic-ischemic brain injury in a neonatal rat model. The left carotid arteries of 7-day-old rats were ligated, and the rats were then exposed to 8% oxygen for 60 min. Mononuclear cells derived from UCBCs(More)
Many children with trisomy 18 have apneas from the neonatal period. It has been reported that some children with trisomy 18 have epilepsy, including epileptic apneas. However, no previous report has described epileptic apneas in trisomy 18 neonates. We retrospectively reviewed the clinical records of neonates with trisomy 18 who were born at Anjo Kosei(More)
Isolated hypoaldosteronism is a rare and occasionally life-threatening cause of salt wasting in infancy. A 2-month-old Japanese boy of unrelated parents was examined for failure to thrive and poor weight gain. Laboratory findings were hyponatremia, hyperkalemia, high plasma renin and low aldosterone levels. Spot urine analysis by gas chromatography-mass(More)
This paper presents a proposal to reconstruct some specific towns which were attacked and destroyed by Huge Tsunami, for example, in Tohoku region of Japan on the 11th of March, 2011. A collaborative approach has been employed to provide some trial proposal to reconstruct such damaged towns by means of Internet Community as follows. (1) Providing a proposal(More)
