2-year-old with spina bifida now running after taking inspiring first steps
A little boy from Kansas, born with a rare condition, has become an inspiration around the world. Video captured the moments Roman Dinkel defied the odds and walked for the first time. Now, he's running. "CBS Evening News" anchor Jeff Glor explains.
Two-week-old Elouise Simpson is home after "foetal repair" surgery following a spina bifida diagnosis.
CONCLUSIONS: Findings revealed that there are few sex-based differences. Additionally, the need for thorough assessment of disordered eating behaviors in this population is warranted, including those with a lower body mass index who might be overlooked for assessment of unhealthy attempts to lose or maintain their weight. Implications for rehabilitation Adolescents and young adults with spina bifida are often advised to lose weight without clear guidelines on how to do so, putting them at risk for disordered eating. Professionals should expect variable body mass indices in this population, with some health behaviors fallin...

A 2-year-old boy was presented with ectopic scrotum, low lesion imperforate anus, spina bifida and pubic diastasis since birth. There are various surgical methods available to be discussed in the management of ES. We performed correction of the ectopic scrotum and concomitant bilateral orchidopexy in one sta...
CONCLUSIONS: We have described the use of a new first trimester sonographic marker for the diagnosis of spina bifida. Our results suggest that the crash sign may be a useful tool in the first trimester detection of spina bifida. Prospective evaluation of the crash sign would be beneficial, ideally in a routine clinical screening ultrasound setting. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

AbstractRecurrent emesis (i.e., vomiting) during mealtime is often a great concern of caregivers of children with pediatric feeding disorders.

Emesis may result from various factors, some of which include volume sensitivity, inadequate oral motor skills, and environmental factors related to food novelty and texture. This case study describes a 6-year-old boy with spina bifida who was dependent upon gastrointestinal-tube feedings due to frequent emesis when fed orally. Upon admission to ...

Conclusions: The prediction model shows promising results; however, further validation using the same protocol is warranted before implementation in clinical practice.
