Sedation With Midazolam After Cardiac Surgery in Children With and Without Down Syndrome: A Pharmacokinetic-Pharmacodynamic Study
Conclusions: The majority of children with and without Down syndrome required additional sedation after cardiac surgery. This pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic analysis does not provide evidence for different dosing of midazolam in children with Down syndrome after cardiac surgery.
We report that electrical stimulation (ES) stimulation of post-stroke aged rats led to an improved functional recovery of spatial long-term memory (T-maze), but not on the rotating pole or the inclined plane, both tests requiring complex sensorimotor skills. Surprisingly, ES had a detrimental effect on the asymmetric sensorimotor deficit. Histologically, there was a robust increase in the number of doublecortin-positive cells in the dentate gyrus and SVZ of the infarcted hemisphere and the presence of a considerable number of neurons expressing tubulin beta III in the infarcted area. Among the genes that were unique...

Authors: Pramono LA, Yuwono A Abstract Congenital hypothyroidism is the most treatable cause of mental retardation. It is also the most prevalent congenital endocrine disorder in childhood. A dramatic improvement can be made by early detection, diagnosis, and adequate treatment of levothyroxine in patients with congenital hypothyroidism. Severe cognitive impairment is associated with persistent disease in patients who have delayed or no treatment at all. In a modern era with complete healthcare facilities in a big city like Jakarta, the prevalence late-diagnosed congenital hypothyroidism is supposed to be very low....
Conclusions: In this case, intraocular E-PRP was a promising, apparently safe, and effective treatment option in management of corneal hydrops, in which conventional approaches failed. This is the first case in the literature to describe OCT appearance of corneal hydrops and intracameral use of E-PRP for the resolution of DM rupture in acute corneal hydrops.

B-acute lymphoblastic leukemia (B-ALL) in patients with Down syndrome (DS) has a worse prognosis than non-DS B-ALL. However, associated cytogenetic alterations may alter the prognosis. Here we discuss a 13-year-old female with DS presenting with leg pain, fevers, white blood cell count 12.8 k/ul, hemoglobin 7.7 g/dL, platelets 31 k/ul, and 60.9% blasts on differential. Flow cytometry identified B-lymphoblasts (positive for CD19, cytoCD79a, cytoCD22, CD34, CD10, TdT, and CD45 (dim)) and bone marrow biopsy demonstrated sheets of B-lymphoblasts.
