AlshammariAbstractA 19-month-old male infant had presented to a paediatric orthopaedic clinic at the age of 6 months with meningomyelocele and bilateral feet deformity. The patient was admitted to the neonatal intensive care unit because of multiple congenital anomalies. These anomalies included meningomyelocele, right clubfoot, left vertical talus, imperforated anus, and an indirect hernia. Radiographs confirmed the diagnosis of right clubfo...

Eur J Pediatr Surg DOI: 10.1055/s-0039-1698768 Introduction We aimed to establish and validate a risk score for fetuses with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) using only prenatal ultrasound findings. Material and Methods Derivation (2011–2016, n = 350) and validation (2006–2010, n = 270) cohorts were obtained from a Japanese CDH study group database. Using a logistic regression analysis, we created a prediction model and weighted scoring system from the derivation dataset and calculated the odds ratio of an unsatisfactory prognosis (death within 90 days of life or...

ConclusionsThe degree of accidental BI during inguinal hernia repair was severe in in the majority of reported cases in the literature. Surgeons should be aware of the high prevalence of “bladder ears” in infants to prevent injury to the urinary tract.

Abstract BACKGROUND: Inguinal hernia is one of the most common surgical diseases, and surgical residents perform inguinal hernia repairs during pediatric surgery rotation. The aims of this study were to examine the clinical outcomes of pediatric inguinal herniorrhaphy performed by surgical residents and to assess the suitability for surgical training. METHODS: We extracted data on elective unilateral inguinal hernia repairs performed in children between 2014 and 2018. All eligible cases were divided into surgical resident and attending surgeon groups according to the operator. We reviewed medical records retr...

Authors: Tamura T, Kaneko K, Yokota S, Kitao T, Ando M, Kubo Y, Nishiwaki K Abstract This randomized, observer-blinded prospective study aimed to compare the postoperative analgesic effects of ultrasound-guided rectus sheath block with those of local anesthetic infiltration of the surgical field in children undergoing inguinal hernia repair. Children aged 2 to 14 years, scheduled for elective single-incision laparoscopic percutaneous extraperitoneal closure, were randomly allocated to receive ultrasound-guided rectus sheath block (group R) or local anesthetic infiltration of the surgical field (group L). In group R...

In Reply We read with interest the comments submitted by Kohler et al in response to our analysis exploring the influence of sociodemographic factors on timing of asymptomatic umbilical hernia repair in children. In their commentary, they propose that the disparities in care characterized in the analysis may be owing to practice variation arising from a lack of well-established consensus guidelines. While we agree that marked practice variation exists in the timing of umbilical hernia repair across children ’s hospitals, we would disagree with the notion that a lack of (or compliance with) recommendations is inherent...

Klin Padiatr DOI: 10.1055/a-1009-6671 Background The mortality of neonates with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) ranges between 20 and 40% even in specialized high-volume centers. The Score for Neonatal Acute Physiology-II (SNAP-II Score) could facilitate the decision about supportive therapies in CDH newborns. Methods The SNAP-II score consists of the variables arterial blood pressure, pH, PaO2:FiO2, body temperature, diuresis, and seizure activity and was calculated at an age of 12 h. Results 101 CDH newborns treated in our institution between 2009 and 2017 were included in the study. A SNAP-II score ≥ 28 ...

ConclusionWe successfully adapted BaseScope ™ to detect circRNAs in rat biofluids: serum and amniotic fluid. We detected signal from probes targeted to circRNAs that are dysregulated in rat CDH. This work establishes the preliminary feasibility of circRNA detection in prenatal diagnostics.
