Coexisting urogenital anomaly and duodenal atresia in two atypical Holt-Oram syndrome
We report two cases with HOS, first associated with renal agenesis, coronal hypospadias, urethral duplication and second associated with duodenal atresia and horseshoe kidney that have not been reported in English literature.
Conclusions: The study ’s findings support the efficacy of tube weaning based on the published “Graz model of tube weaning” for children born with EA/TEF and indicate the necessity of specialized tube weaning programs for these patients.What is Known:• Children with esophageal atresia/tracheoesophageal fistula often suffer from feeding problems and tube dependency.• Different tube weaning programs and outcomes have been published, but not specifically for children with EA.What is New:• Evaluation of a large sample of children referred for tube weaning after EA repair.• Most children wi...

Conclusion Parentally observed feeding difficulties were commonly reported during early childhood, although prevalence decreases in older age groups. Several congenital and surgical factors were identified as independent predictors of complicated nutritional intake patterns.

ConclusionPatients with CSA/CSS may develop different kinds of SVT. Electrophysiological procedures for such patients are feasible and effective. An individualized mapping strategy based on the three types of CS drainage will be helpful.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
This study evaluated compliance with a multi-institutional quality improvement management protocol for Type-C esophageal atresia with distal tracheoesophageal fistula (EA/TEF).
Biliary atresia (BA) is a fibro-obliterative cholangiopathy that involves both extrahepatic and intrahepatic bile ducts in infants. Cholangiocyte apoptosis has an influence on the fibrogenesis process of bile ducts and the progression of liver fibrosis in BA. Human amniotic fluid stem cells (hAFSCs) are multipotent cells that have ability to inhibit cell apoptosis. We aimed to investigate whether hAFSCs have the potential to attenuate cholangiocyte apoptosis and injury induced fibrogenic response in our ex vivo bile duct injury model of liver ductal organoids.
Preclinical studies demonstrate that tissue engineering and patient-derived stem cells can regenerate tissue. The goal of this study was to determine whether stem cells from esophageal atresia patients (EA) could be utilized for this purpose.
CONCLUSIONS: Fibrosis in BA progresses rapidly and is significantly correlated with BDP. Assessment of targeting BDP as an adjuvant medical therapy is recommended. PMID: 33007429 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
