ConclusionThere is no association between early initiation of adjuvant chemotherapy and post-operative complications including wound healing. Early initiation of chemotherapy ( ≤ 7 days) is feasible in unilateral WT or high-risk neuroblastoma patients who are otherwise doing well without resulting in a preponderance of wound healing complications.

AbstractPurposeWe aimed to clarify the frequency and the clinical significance of deviation of the uterus in female pediatric inguinal hernia.MethodsWe retrospectively evaluated the data of 94 female pediatric inguinal hernia cases that were treated by laparoscopic percutaneous extraperitoneal closure. We assessed for correlations between uterine deviation and age, body weight, the size of the hernia orifice, and the presence of contralateral processus vaginalis (PV) patency.ResultsEighty-four of 94 cases were diagnosed with unilateral inguinal hernia. A total of 62 (73.8%) of these had uterine deviation to the hernia side...

ConclusionsSymptomatic intestinal malrotation in extremely premature infants has a relatively high prevalence. It may present with marked abdominal distension without bilious vomiting, demanding a high index of suspicion. An atypical presentation, potential alternative abdominal pathologies, coexisting  comorbidities, and concerns about survival in these fragile babies may deter the surgeon despite the opportunity of a good outcome.

ConclusionThere were no differences in short or long-term mortality between four university hospitals in Finland. However, some inter-hospital variation in postoperative outcomes was present.Level of evidenceLevel III.

ConclusionO/E LHR is a well-validated standard for predicting outcomes and guiding prenatal counseling in CDH. We provide evidence that fetal MRI measurements of the contralateral lung volume corrected for gestational age were more accurate in predicting the need for ECMO and survival. Future prospective studies validating O/E CLV regarding outcomes and ECMO utilization are warranted.Level of evidenceLevel III, retrospective comparative study.

ConclusionMultipoint biopsy should be performed when the biopsy results are inconsistent with clinical manifestations. Intraoperative laparoscopic identification of the transition zone may be necessary when TCA is suspected. Multisegment biopsy is needed to as a preventative measure for SS-HSCR if TCA is indicated during surgery. Further study is required to determine the optimal length and method of retention of segments.

Purpose of review The mucosal barrier serves as a primary interface between the environment and host. In daily life, superficial injury to the gastric or duodenal mucosa occurs regularly but heals rapidly by a process called ‘restitution’. Persistent injury to the gastroduodenal mucosa also occurs but initiates a regenerative lesion with specific wound healing mechanisms that attempt to repair barrier function. If not healed, these lesions can be the site of neoplasia development in a chronic inflammatory setting. This review summarizes the past year of advances in understanding mucosal repair in the gastro...
