The “cut and push” method of removing percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy tube is not safe in paediatric patients
ConclusionOur study reports more severe complications that required complex surgical interventions compared to the previous studies. We believe that this method of removal is not safe in children and should be abandoned. Also, patients with Down syndrome might be at higher risk of retention and complications.

Risk factors for and developmental relation of delayed oral nutrition in infants with congenital diaphragmatic hernia
ConclusionIn patients with CDH, a large defect and ventilatory management over 9  days are independent risk factors for delayed oral nutrition, which is a potent predictor of developmental delay that requires active developmental care. (Source: Pediatric Surgery International)
