What are Some of the Causes of SGA?
Discussion Intrauterine growth retardation or fetal growth retardation is due to a pathological process that causes decelerated fetal growth velocity. Small-for-gestational age (SGA) is an infant with growth parameters below the normal range for gestational age. More commonly, SGA is defined as a birth weight
ConclusionNo significant difference was found in the clinical manifestations, mortality, and complication between children and adults but children tended to have lesser chance of using alternative antibiotics, methylprednisolone and inhaled NO. The chance of associated cytomegalovirus (CMV) disease was also significantly lower in children.
In this work, the four optimum azimuthal angles are determined for a full-Stokes scanning polarimeter comprising a rectangular prism, quarter-wave plate, and four linear polarizers. The determinant and condition numbers of the measurement matrix are used as objective functions in an optimization ...

CONCLUSION: Increasing on-time percent does not improve efficiency under torsional long-pulse US. There is no significant change in chatter with increasing on-time percent. Increasing power increases efficiency despite chatter increase. Long-pulse US does not appear to influence torsional action in a clinically meaningful way. PMID: 31109482 [PubMed - in process]
Abstract OBJECTIVE: To review visual and anatomic outcomes after cataract surgery with complications in a teaching institution. METHODS: Consecutive case series. A chart review was conducted of patients who underwent phacoemulsification with intraoperative or postoperative complications, performed by ophthalmology residents under direct supervision of experienced ophthalmology attending physicians. Best corrected visual acuity (BCVA), OCT parameters, and postoperative treatments were reviewed at 1, 3, 6, and 12 months postoperatively. RESULTS: One hundred thirty-three eyes were analyzed. Mean BCVA was 50...
Abstract OBJECTIVE: To determine the use of home care services in those with and without visual impairment in Canada. DESIGN: Population-based cross-sectional study. PARTICIPANTS: Participants came from the baseline examination of the Canadian Longitudinal Study on Aging Comprehensive Cohort. Inclusion criteria included age between 45 and 85 years, community dwelling, and living near one of the 11 data collection sites across 7 Canadian provinces. People were excluded if they were in an institution, were living on a First Nations reserve, were full-time members of the Canadian Armed Forces, did not speak...
CONCLUSION: The FFCEs generated at the hospital service corridor by an urban community DR screening teleophthalmology project did not impact negatively on its services; moreover, the service corridor was exempted from providing FFCEs to 87.4% of the diabetic population it serves. This study may help provide cost-efficiency indications for a screening protocol that would include OCT availability at the imaging site and measure its positive effects. While DR of which DME was the main cause of referral for FFCE, incidental significant sight-threatening findings were significant and approached DR as a cause of referral; this s...
CONCLUSIONS: The prevalence of ocular hypertension and glaucoma based on suspect optic nerves in our sample population was high, indicating a strong need for access to ophthalmologic care in the Haitian population. PMID: 31109474 [PubMed - in process]
