Surfactant phosphatidylcholine metabolism in neonates with meconium aspiration syndrome.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Because meconium directly inhibits surfactant function, we sought to determine the effect of meconium on endogenous surfactant synthesis and clearance. STUDY DESIGN We studied surfactant phosphatidylcholine kinetics with the use of stable isotopes in 11 newborn infants with meconium aspiration syndrome (MAS) who required extracorporeal membrane… (More)
