  • Palivizumab profilaksa RSV infekcije

    • Authors: Almira Ćosićkić, Jasminka Ibrahimović, Amela Čikarić
      Abstract: Introduction: Palivizumab is indicated for respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) prophylaxis in high-risk children. Material and methods: Observational study, in Tuzla Canton, Bosnia and Herzegovina (B&H), reports of infants at high risk for RSV who received at least 1 dose of palivizumab during the 2008-2016 RSV seasons. Results: Across 8 RSV seasons, from 2008/9 to 2016/17, 267 infants were enrolled (0.66% of livebirths population). Of all infants,147 (55.0%) were enrolled for prematurity only, 7 (2.6%) for bronchopulmonary dysplasia/ chronic lung disease (BPD/CLD), 115 (43.0% ) for congenital heart disease (CHD), and 5 (1.8%) for other reasons; 129 (46.3%) infants in total were born before 33 weeks. Average gestational age of preterm infants enrolled for prematurity only was 30.1±1.2 weeks; for preterm infants with BPD/CLD it was 30±1.3weeks. Overall average of palivizumab injections was 3.9±1.1. Hospitalization rate related to severe lower respiratory infections (LRI) during the period of protection by palivizumab was 3.3%. Respiratory infections which deserved medical attention were observed in 6.3% infants included in palivizumab prophylaxis. Conclusion: RSV prophylaxis in Tuzla Canton is provided systematically and successfully, following the national guidance established in 2009. with low hospitalization rate for severe LRI in prophylaxed infants..

  • Djeca rođena mala za gestacijsku dob (SGA)

    • Authors: Fahrija Skokić, Nešad Hotić, Alma Merić, Selma Muratović, Zlata Hajrić, Edita Alibegović
      Abstract: Abstract   We have examined the frequency of small for gestational age (SGA) newborns during years 2007- 2016 in the Tuzla Canton, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Methods: This study includes small for gestational age newborns, who were born in the University Clinical Center Tuzla, Clinic of Gynecology and Obstetrics for a ten- year- period. Results: In the period of ten years the total number of births was 41 475 newborns, of which 1008 (2.43) were small for gestational age. The birth weight ranged from 800 to 2500 grams, SD ± 221.2 and the coefficient of variation of 0.58. The average gestational age was 37.4 weeks of gestation, with SD ± 4.04 and very low coefficient of variation of 0.17. Most of newborns were born in the period 71.9% with significant statistical differences (p <.05) rate (P <.001 for preterm and postterm). The analysis by age is fairly uniform, except in the year 2008. The participation in early neonatal mortality is high, 48%. Conclusions: The incidence of small for gestational age newborns in the study is relatively low, but their representation in the early neonatal mortality rate was extremely high and requres further studies related to preventing the birth and death of the newborn.

  • Hipertrofično nedonošće

    • Authors: Nermina Dedić, Azra Feukić, Hazba Sejdin
      Abstract: Hypertrophy or excessive fetal growth denotes infant with birth weight greater than ninety percentile for gestational age or term newborns with birth weight greater than 4000 grams. In the overall perinatal population hypertrophic newborns accounts for about 10%, while the incidence of hypertrophic premature infants is 1.09%.The etiology of newbors hypertrophyis multifactorial. Risk factors are genetic predisposition, maternal age over30 years, male gender, diabetes of mothers, infants with Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome, fetal erythroblastosis, transposition of the great arteries and others. During vaginal delivery of hypertrophic newborns there is a greater risk for complications for the mother and the newborn like shoulder dystocia in the birth canal and brachial plexus injury and increased risk of bleeding after childbirth and disruption of soft parts of maternity channel.Perinatal morbidity ofhypertrophic newborns is twice higher compared toeutrophic newborns mostly because birth trauma or hypoglycemia which usually occurs 1-2 hours after birth due to fetal hyperinsulinemia present.In the hypertrophicinfantsperinatal asphyxia, caesarean section, meconium aspiration, hypocalcemia,hyperbilirubinemia, respiratory distress syndrome, dystocia shoulder are more common. The negative consequences of increased fetal growth are not limited only to the perinatal period. Compared with normal birth weight infants, hypertrophic newborns have increasedrisk of obesity, coronary heart disease, hypertension and diabetes mellitus type 2 in adolescence and adulthood.The aim is to highlight the importance of a multidisciplinary approach of gynecologist, anesthetist and neonatologist in providing of hypertrophy newborns in rder to reduce the morbidity and mortality of mothers and newborns.

  • Rani i kasni ishod nedonoščadi liječene u jedinici intenzivne terapije
           i njege u Tuzlanskom kantonu

    • Authors: Devleta Hadžić, Aida Mršić, Edin Husarić, Fahrija Skokić, Nermina Selimhodžić
      Abstract: Early and late preterm infants outcome is the greatest challenge of modern medical practice. It is a medically proven fact that the grounds of death (60 percent) in neonates occurs due to being underweight, especially the premature ones. The efforts are to avoid premature birth and give the best care to the ones that have been born already by finding all the components that are causing it. Very encouraging results have been achieved associated, planned and organized multidisciplinary activities of health professionals from different fields who take care of vulnerable pregnancy and vulnerable neonates. Thanks to modern medical technology it has become easier to deal with prenatal care and underweight babies but the most important factor to truly succeed in the hereafter is the human factor, nurses and doctors and possibly the mother of a child who with their knowledge, experience, dedication and conscience will continue to use medical technology for the benefit of healthy child.

  • Rizici kasnog prematuriteta novorođenčadi hospitalizirane u
           jedinici intenzivne njege

    • Authors: Lejla Dostović Hamidović, Aida Babović
      Abstract: Introduction: Late preterm newborn (earlier also known as "near term") are a special subset of neonates born between 34+0/7 and 36+6/7 weeks of gestation. Late prematurity accounts for approximately 74% of all preterm births and about 8% of total births. Late preterm neonates in their characteristics are similar to term neonates but because of its physiological and metabolic immaturity are prone to various complications. Aim: The aim of the study was to demonstrate the complications of late prematurity, morbidity structure, and the outcome of late preterm neonates who require hospitalization in the Intensive Care Units (ICU). Patients and Methods: In this retrospective study we have evaluated the health state of late preterm neonates admitted to ICU Clinic for Children's Diseases, University Clinical Center Tuzla, in the period between 01.01.2013. and 01.01.2017. Results and Discussion: In the Clinic of Gynecology and Obstetrics Clinical Center Tuzla in the four year period were 15,520 live-born infants, of whom 7,06% (1,097) were preterm. Late preterm infants accounted 72.47% (795). 18,61% (148) of them required continiu treatment in ICU. The most common reasons for admission to ICU were respiratory problems, intracranial hemorrhage, sepsis, hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy and perinatal asphyxia. More often are hospitalized the male infants, average gestation age amounted 34.9 gestation weeks and mostly belonged to the premature neonates of low birth weight. Almost one-quarter of hospitalized required ventilatory support. In our study group mortality was 8%. Conclusion: Late preterm infants are the majority of preterm neonates and the risk of medical complications and admission in ICU is several times higher than in term neonates. It points to the public health significance of this population which is increasing.

  • Oksigenoterapija u neonatologiji

    • Authors: Evlijana Zulić, Gordana Radoja, Nerma Bakić
      Abstract: Oxygen therapy is a way of treatment by the addition of oxygen to inhaled air. In neonatology is inevitable and an emergency procedure during resuscitation and further treatment of criticle ill newborn. Oxygen therapy prevent the emergence of primary hypoxemia, and hypoxia. The task of the oxygen therapy is to achieve a partial pressure of oxygen in arterial blood (PaO2)> 8 kPa with hemoglobin oxygen saturation> 90%. Ways of applications oxygen therapy are: diffuse, HOOD, via nasal cannula, and oxygenation with positive pressure. The future requires new clinical trials, which will monitor the application of oxygen therapy and create a new strategy for the treatment of infants with acute lung injury with ischemia reperfusion changes. The aim of this study was to present the importance and the methods of application of oxygen therapy in neonatology.

  • Prijevremeni porođaj

    • Authors: Gordana Grgić, Dženita Ljuca, Gordana Bogdanović, Elvedina Halilović, Mirela Hodžić, Irma Čolić, Haris Zukić, Jasenko Fatušić
      Abstract: Pretem labour continues to represent one of the most significant problem in perinatal medicine, primarily because of its high participation in the perinatal morbidity and mortality. Is defined as delivery prior to 37 weeks of gestation. The lower limit is usually taken 24 gestational weeks. The incidence in many countries around 7-10%. The causes of premature birth can be divided into: fetal, placental, uterine, maternal and other causes. Many microbiological and histopathological studies established that infection occurs in 25 to 40% of preterm labour. A preterm labour in most cases is result of preterm premature rupture of membranes. It occurs in about 40% of preterm births. Estrogen and progesterone play a major role in the endocrinology of pregnancy. Progesterone maintains the myometrium at rest, does not lead to creation of a "gap junction" inhibiting the formation and maturation of cervix. Estrogens contribute to the increase in contractility and excitability of the uterus as well as in induction of cervical ripening prior to the birth. The goal of tocolytic therapy is to stop the activity of the uterus and allow the extension of pregnancy and intrauterine fetal development, to improve perinatal outcome, without endangering the mother. Certain forms of tocolytic therapy can delay delivery for several days, allowing the full effect of corticosteroid therapy and transport the mother to a tertiary center. Inclusion corticosteroids to mother in the period 24-34 weeks of gestation leads to a reduction in perinatal morbidity and mortality. Keywords: prematurelabour, premature rupture of membranes, corticosteroids.

  • Perisivna hiperkapnija-strategija tretmana mehanički ventilirane
           nedonoščadi

    • Authors: Amela Selimović, Zlata Hajrić, Rasema Šiljegović, Meliha Ćurćić
      Abstract: Advanced in perinatal care such as surfacant, antenatal steroids, and improved ventilatory suport have markedly reduced mortality rates of premature infants, allowing the survival of many critically ill infants. But, the improved survival of these vulbnerable newbrns has increased the number of infants at risk for various forms of respiratory morbidities including brnochopulmonry displasia and lear leaks. There are physiological rationale and experimantal data that sugest permissive hypercapnia may be well tolerated and result in reduced lung injury in mehanical ventilated premature newborns. Permissive hypercapnia or controlled ventilation is a strategy that minimize baro/volutrauma by allowing relativly high level of arterial CO2, provided that arterial pH does not fall bellow a preset minimal value. Gradual small elevations in pCO2 are relatively safe as long as the pH stops above 7.20. Thus, in permissive hypercapnia priority is given to the prevention or limitation of overventilation rather than maintenace of normal blood gases and alveolar ventilation. Mild to moderate alveolar hyoventilation and respiratory acidosis may be well tolerated and my lead to prevention of pulmoray volutrauma in premature infants. There is need for futher research testing to determine the appropriate clinical application of permisive hypercapnia, the optimal level of hypercapnic acidosis, without an increased risk of impaired neurodevelopment or other adverse efects.

  • Kongenitalna diafragmalna hernija (CDH)

    • Authors: Emir Rahmanović, Edin Husarić, Elvira Konjić, Amir Halilbašić, Sani Suljendić
      Abstract: Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is inbred anomaly which is understood as inbred flaw of diaphragm followed by herniation of abdominal viscera into chest cavity and different level of lung hypoplasia. Incidence of it is 1: 5000 of live births and it makes 8% of all massive congenital anomalies. Originally, it was considered as primarily surgical problem but in past two decades, clarification of patophysiological importance of lung hypoplasia, progressive lung hypertension as well as persistent fetal circulation in CDH, previous doctrinaire approach for urgent operational care was rejected. Primary treatment of CDH is stabilization of of neonate and fighting progressive lung hypertension in neonate. “Gentle ventilation” principle with accurate values of parameters, high frequency oscillating ventilation (HFVO) and extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) increases survival rate up to 80%. Nowadays, surgical procedure is performed on stabile neonate as semielective procedure.

  • Retinopatija prematuriteta- savremeni koncepti skrininga i tretmana

    • Authors: Meliha Halilbašić, Mersiha Sinanović, Amra Mehmedinović
      Abstract: Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) is a vasoproliferative disorder of the retina occurring principally in new born preterm infants.According to World Health Organisation (WHO) it stands in third place of preventable causes of blindness.The exact etiology is not completely understood and many factors appear to contribute to the pathogenesis and progression of the disease. ROP is a two-phase disease, beginning with delayed retinal vascular growth after premature birth and phase II follows when phase I-induced hypoxia releases factors to stimulate new blood vessel growth. Essential in clinical approach to ROP is ophthalmological screening. Timely screening of ROP done by ophthalmologist within a few weeks after birth can prevent blindness. Good selection of infants at high risk for the occurrence of retinopathy of prematurity, as well as timely initiation of the screening, allow the proper implementation of prevention and treatment options. The responsibility of a pediatrician is to initiate screening done by ophthalmologist and ophthalmologist’s responsibility is to properly perform screening and choose treatment options. This article highlights the modern concept of the pathophysiology, screening and treatment options for ROP.

  • Matične ćelije iz pupčanika

    • Authors: Gordana Bogdanović, Dženita Ljuca, Gordana Grgić, Haris Zukić
      Abstract: Stem cells are basic cells of the human body; it builds human body, but also participate in the regeneration of damaged tissues and organs. They are undifferentiated that can differentiate into various types of cells in an organism, which is very important in terms of therapeutic applications. They differ in embryonic and adult stem cells. Adult cells are divided into pluripotent and unipotent. Pluripotent cells are found in the blood and in the tissue of the umbilical cord. Stem cells taking process is performed immediately after birth, sampling blood and cord tissue. Today, stem cells are used to treat more than 80 different diseases. The number of possible treatments increases every day, and treatment of stem cell becomes a special branch of medicine.

  • Bronhopulmonalna displazija

    • Authors: Amela Pašić, Aida Dropić
      Abstract: Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BDP) is a chronic lung disease which is defined as the need to apply oxygen therapy 28 days of postnatal life and the degree of severity of the disease is determined 36 weeks corrected gestational age (KGS). It is a chronic lung disease whose symptoms and signs are derived from the neonatal period and is one of the most severe consequences of preterm labor, leading to extended and fixed depending on the application and oxygen influences the mortality and morbidity in preterm infants. The pathological process in pulmonary hemorrhage and affects the airways and lung parenchyma and usually occurs in small premature infants with respiratory distress syndrome which leads to lung injury and inadequate reparations such damage. Frequency of GDP ranges from 4-53%. Risk factors for the development of bronchopulmonary dysplasia can be podlijediliti on prenatal and postnatal. The criteria for determining the severity of BPD vary for infants who are born before or after 32 gestational weeks. Given that the GDP chronic lung disease can last for weeks and months but they certainly need to be patient and not expect rapid improvement after therapy administered.

  • Kardiomiopatije u novorođenčkoj dobi

    • Authors: Dženana Ostrvica, Hidajeta Begić, Edin Ostrvica, Fahrija Skokić
      Abstract: Cardiomyopathies (CMP) are very rare disease in newborn with a very poor uotcome. Only isolated case reports and small case series have been reported. CMP is a disease that affects the myocardium and causes mechanical or electrical cardiac dysfunction. Even cumulatively, these conditions account for only approximately 1% of childhood cardiac disease. CMP presents a therapeutic challenge for the clinician, as evidenced by the fact that 10% of all pediatric cardiac deaths can be attributed to this condition. The estimated incidence of pediatric CMP was determined to be 1,13 cases per 100.000 children. Incidence varied according to sex, region and racial origin.We concluded that the best approach for evaluating a neonate who has a potential CMP is to identify the possible type of CMP and subsequently determine the potential cause wich leads terapeutic issue. Aetiology and clinical course are especially heterogeneous in infants. The most commonly identified aetiologies are genetic syndromes and metabolic diseases. A multidisciplinary approach is recommended for defining the aetiology and developing individual treatment strategies.
