A newborn boy was admitted with a congenital rubella infection. Seven years previously his mother had been vaccinated against rubella; 3 years previously rubella immunity had been confirmed. Therefore, intrauterine transmission must have occurred after maternal reinfection during pregnancy. Prenatal diagnosis of rubella embryopathy with serological methods(More)
Background: Bacterial infections are considered to be a main factor for preterm birth. We analyzed the epidemiology of congenital bacterial infections on basis of data from three multicenter trials in VLBW-infants.Patients and Methods: Congenital bacterial infections were defined as clinical illness with positive blood culture (sepsis) or respiratory(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the effect of bovine surfactant (SF-RI 1, Alveofact) administered during the first hour following birth to very premature infants [gestational age (GA), 25-30 weeks] in a multicenter, controlled trial. HYPOTHESIS Survival without bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD; definition: ventilator dependency or FiO2 greater than 0.3 during(More)
We investigated the effects of a bovine surfactant (SF-RI 1, Alveofact) in very low birth weight infants (VLBW, b.w. 500-1500 g) with established respiratory distress syndrome (RDS; definition: FiO2 greater than or equal to 0.6 or peak inspiratory pressure greater than 22-28 cm H2O). Fifty mg/kg b.w. bovine surfactant was administered intratracheally as a(More)
Cor triatriatum and supracardiac anomalous pulmonary venous drainage as a combined heart lesion occurred in a 4 1/2 months old infant. The history of development is outlined and successful correction using cardio-pulmonary bypass described.
Der Fehlabgang der rechten Koronararterie aus der Arteria pulmonalis gehört zu den seltensten Koronaranomalien, bleibt häufig asymptomatisch bis ins hohe Alter, kann aber auch bereits im Säuglingsalter klinisch manifest werden und bis zum plötzlichen Herztod führen. Wir berichten über die Diagnostik und chirurgische Therapie bei einem 15 Monate alten(More)
Two ventilatory techniques were investigated prospectively for the production of extraalveolar air leakage (eal) in a collaborative study from 8 children's hospitals (eal: interstitial emphysema, pneumothorax, -mediastinum, -pericardium, -peritoneum). Ventilated four hours old neonates with normocapnia and an oxygen requirement of 40% or more were entered(More)
In a one-day-old male newborn with severe heart failure, the skin of the upper right thorax was pink, whereas the remaining areas were cyanotic. No peripheral pulses were palpable and the blood pressure could not be measured. On cardiac catheterization, systolic and diastolic pressures were elevated in the left ventricle (137/4/12 mmHg), but in the(More)
