Neonatal Cholestasis: Updates on Diagnostics, Therapeutics, and Prevention
Cholestatic jaundice is a common presenting feature of hepatobiliary and/or metabolic dysfunction in the newborn and young infant. Timely detection of cholestasis, followed by rapid step-wise evaluation to determine the etiology, is crucial to identify those causes that are amenable to medical or surgical intervention and to optimize outcomes for all infants. In the past 2 decades, genetic etiologies have been elucidated for many cholestatic diseases, and next-generation sequencing, whole-exome sequencing, and whole-genome sequencing now allow for relatively rapid and cost-effective diagnosis of conditions not previously i...

Multifetal Gestations and Associated Perinatal Risks
Along with the rise of assisted reproductive technology, multifetal gestations increased dramatically. Twin pregnancies account for 97% of multifetal pregnancies and 3% of all births in the United States. Twins and higher-order multiples carry increased risks of obstetric, perinatal, and maternal complications; these risks increase with increasing fetal number. Neonatal morbidity and mortality in multifetal gestations is driven primarily by prematurity. Both spontaneous and indicated preterm births are increased in multifetal gestations, and only a limited number of strategies are available to mitigate this risk. No single...

Placenta accreta spectrum (PAS) refers to the range of pathologic adherence of the placenta to the uterine myometrium, including the placenta accreta, increta, and percreta. The incidence of PAS is rising primarily because of an increase in related risk factors, such as the rate of cesarean deliveries and pregnancies resulting from assisted reproductive technology. The maternal risks associated with PAS are significant, including hemorrhage, hysterectomy, and death. Fetal and neonatal risks are primarily the result of premature delivery.

What Causes Irritability?
Discussion Child abuse or non-accidental trauma is a clinical diagnosis. It is the constellation of history, physical examination, radiographic evaluation, laboratory testing and investigation that determines if child abuse has occurred. Irritability caused by fractures or other trauma can be a presenting symptom of abuse. Fractures can be a presentation but they are also common problems not associated with abuse. Femoral shaft fractures are estimated to account for only 1.6% of all fractures in children, therefore they are potentially more suspicious for child abuse. A review of femur fractures can be found here. A review...
