      Abstract: Abstract Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a leading killer of children in the developed and developing world. Despite evidence-based guidelines and several recent clinical trials, the progress in developing best practices for children with severe TBI has been slow. This article describes (i) the burden of the disease, (ii) the inadequacies of the evidence-based guidelines, (iii) the failure of the largest clinical trials to prove their primary hypotheses, and (iv) possible advances from an observational cohort study called the Approaches and Decisions for Acute Pediatric TBI (ADAPT) Trial that has recently completed enrollment.

  • When in doubt, sit it out! Pediatric concussion—an update
    • Authors: Julia Morrow Kerrigan; Christopher C. Giza
      Pages: 1669 - 1675
      Abstract: Abstract Concussion is a major public health issue that has received much publicity in recent years. Reported concussions are increasing across all ages, including the highest rates in pediatric age ranges. Due to the age-related physiological responses and differential recovery of symptoms after concussion, special consideration must be given to youth concussions. Concussion can affect each child differently and likely affects children differently than adults. Until the past decade, there has been a scarcity of scientifically rigorous studies examining concussions in children. This increasing amount of research and consensus has begun to influence the definition, evaluation, management, return to school and play recommendations, prevention, and education relating to pediatric concussion. The purpose of this article is a review of relevant research published in the last few years (2015–2017) with highlights of these updates summarized for clinical use.

  • Challenges in minor TBI and indications for head CT in pediatric
           TBI—an update
    • Authors: Navneet Singh; Ash Singhal
      Pages: 1677 - 1681
      Abstract: Introduction Pediatric head trauma is one of the commonest presentations to emergency departments. Over 90% of such head injuries are considered mild, but still present risk acute clinical deterioration and longer term morbidity. Identifying which children are at risk of clinically important brain injuries remains challenging and much of the data on minor head injuries is based on the adult population. Challenges in pediatrics Children, however, are different, both anatomically and in terms of mechanism of injury, to adults and, even within the pediatric group, there are differences with age and stage of development. Imaging CT scans have added to the repertoire of clinicians in the assessment of pediatric head injury population, but judicious use is required given radiation exposure, malignancy risk, and resource constraints. Guidelines and head injury rules have been developed, for adults and children, to support decision-making in the emergency department though whether their use is applicable to all population groups is debatable. Further challenges in mild pediatric head trauma also include appropriate recommendations for school attendance and physical activity after discharge. Further developments Concern remains for second-impact syndrome and, in the longer term, for post-concussive syndrome and further research in both is still needed. Furthermore, the development of clinical decision rules raises further questions on the purpose of admitting children with minor head injuries and answering this question may aid the evolution of clinical decision guidelines. Conclusions The next generation of catheter with homogeneous flow patterns based on parametric designs may represent a step forward for the treatment of hydrocephalus, by possibly broadening their lifespan.

  • Glucose metabolism in pediatric traumatic brain injury
    • Authors: Mayumi L. Prins
      Pages: 1711 - 1718
      Abstract: Abstract Traumatic brain injury is the number one cause of death and disability among the pediatric population in the USA. The heterogeneity of the pediatric population is reflected by both the normal cerebral maturation and the age differences in the causes of TBI, which generate unique age-related pathophysiology responses and recovery profiles. This review will address the normal changes in cerebral glucose metabolism throughout developmental phases and how TBI alters glucose metabolism. Evidence has shown that TBI disrupts the biochemical processing of glucose to energy. This brings to question, “What is the optimal substrate to manage a pediatric TBI patient'” Issues related to glycemic control and alternative substrate metabolism are addressed specifically in regard to pediatric TBI. Research into pediatric glucose metabolism after TBI is limited, and understanding these age-related differences within the pediatric population have great potential to improve support for the injured younger brain.

  • Decompressive craniectomy for traumatic intracranial hypertension:
           application in children
    • Authors: Adam M. H. Young; Angelos G. Kolias; Peter J. Hutchinson
      Pages: 1745 - 1750
      Abstract: Abstract Traumatic brain injury remains prevalent in children, particularly within the adolescent age group. In severe injury, the priority of treatment is to stabilise the patient initially and prevent the evolution of brain swelling and secondary ischaemia using tiers of medical therapy. The final stage of intervention for such patients is a decompressive craniectomy. Here in, we identify the current evidence for performing decompressive crainectomy in children including the results from the RESCUEicp study.

  • Problems of reconstructive cranioplasty after traumatic brain injury in
    • Authors: Paolo Frassanito; Gianpiero Tamburrini; Luca Massimi; Simone Peraio; Massimo Caldarelli; Concezio Di Rocco
      Pages: 1759 - 1768
      Abstract: Abstract Cranial repair after traumatic brain injury in children is still burdened by unsolved problems and controversial issues, mainly due to the high rate of resorption of autologous bone as well as the absence of valid alternative material to replace the autologous bone. Indeed, inert biomaterials are associated to satisfactory results in the short period but bear the continuous risk of complications related to the lack of osteointegration capacity. Biomimetic materials claiming osteoconductive properties that could balance their mechanical limits seem to allow good cranial bone reconstruction. However, these results should be confirmed in the long term and in larger series. Further complicating factors that may affect cranial reconstruction after head injury should be identified in the possible associated alterations of CSF dynamics and in difficulties to manage the traumatic skin lesion and the surgical wound, which also might impact on the cranioplasty outcome. All the abovementioned considerations should be taken into account when dealing with the cranial reconstruction after decompressive craniectomy in children.

  • A survey on pediatric brain death and on organ transplantation: how did
           the law amendment change the awareness of pediatric healthcare
    • Authors: Takashi Araki; Hiroyuki Yokota; Koutaro Ichikawa
      Pages: 1769 - 1774
      Abstract: Objectives In Japanese society taking a cautious attitude towards organ transplantation, we investigate how amendment of the Organ Transplant Law which legalized brain death (BD) determination criteria changed the awareness concerning BD and organ transplantation of pediatric healthcare providers. Methods The questionnaire survey adopted the bearer method and was sent to members of the Japanese Society of Emergency Pediatrics (JSEP). In both the surveys of 2008 and 2016, the same item “Questionnaire survey on BD and organ transplant” was disseminated. We compared the responses of the two surveys. Statistical analysis was performed using chi-square test. Significance was observed when p value was less than 0.05. Results Comparison of the results of the two surveys in this study showed a change in awareness of BD/organ transplantation held by pediatric healthcare providers in Japan. It was suggested that Japanese pediatric healthcare providers tend to explain to the family that it is BD with incomplete diagnosis of BD. In the 2016 survey, there is an increase in the response “There is experience of children diagnosed with BD” and it might be due to the effect of the amendment of the law (p = 0.0038). Conclusion In July 2010, the “Amendment of the Organ Transplant Law” became effective, and it became possible to provide organs with family member consent even if the intention of the patient to provide organs was unknown. Since this amendment made it possible to provide children under 15 years of age with BD donors, we assumed that there was a change in awareness concerning BD determination and organ transplantation for pediatric healthcare providers.

  • A clinical scoring system to predict the development of intraventricular
           hemorrhage (IVH) in premature infants
    • Authors: Yesim Coskun; Semra Isik; Tevfik Bayram; Kamran Urgun; Sibel Sakarya; Ipek Akman
      Abstract: Objectıve The aim of this study is to develop a scoring system for the prediction of intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH) in preterm infants in the first 7 days of life. Methods A prospective, clinical study was conducted in Bahcesehir University, Medical Park Goztepe Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, with the enrollment of 144 preterm infants with gestational age between 24 and 34 weeks. All preterms were followed up for IVH after birth until the 4th week of life. The demographic characteristics and clinical risk factors were noted. Risk factors were analyzed. The score was established after logistic regression analysis, considering the impact of each variable on the occurrence of IVH within the first 7 days of life. The IVH scores were further applied prospectively to 89 preterm infants as validation cohort. Results Low gestational age (GA), low Apgar score, and having bleeding diathesis were the most important risk factors for IVH. According to these risk factors, a scoring system was developed for IVH ranged from 0 to 5. According to the risk ratios (RR) obtained from the logistic regression model, low GA (≤ 28 gestational week), presence of bleeding diathesis within 7 days, and low Apgar score increased the risk of IVH (RR = 3.32 for GA ≤ 28 gestational week, RR = 6.7 for presence of bleeding diathesis in 7th day, RR = 3 for having low Apgar score). The score was validated successfully in 89 infants. The area under ROC curve was 0.85 for derivation cohort and 0.807 for validation cohort. The predictive ability of the IVH score for derivation and validation cohort was calculated. The negative predictive values of a score less than 4 were 96.4 and 59.1%. Conclusıon Concerning IVH-related sequelae which continue to be a major public health problem, we have developed a feasible predictive model for evaluating the risk for developing IVH for preterm infants in the first 7 days of life.

      Abstract: Purpose Spina bifida is a common congenital anomaly of the nervous system. It is frequently associated with significant morbidity and sometimes mortality in affected children. In this paper, we review the clinico-epidemiological pattern, peculiarities, and therapeutic challenges of this condition in our practice setting. Methods This is a retrospective study of all cases of spina bifida managed from July 2000 to March 2016 at a tertiary health facility located in the southwest region of Nigeria. Relevant information was retrieved from the medical records. The data was collected using a pro forma and analyzed with SPSS version 22. Results Data from 148 patients was reviewed and analyzed. There were 78 males and 70 females. Only 5.8% of these children were delivered at the health institution. A fifth (20%) of the patients were first born of their mothers. The mean maternal age was 29 years. Few (10.1%) mothers use folate medication prior to conception and only 58% of the mothers use folate during antenatal care. Mean duration of pregnancy was 38 weeks. The most common anatomical site was lumbosacral region (74.3%) while the most common pathology was myelomeningocele 80.4%. Mean age at surgery was 88.68 h. Mean duration of surgery was 92.8 min. Mean follow-up duration was 46.8 weeks. As many as 59% of the patients had some neurologic improvement noticed during follow-up clinic visits. Conclusion Spina bifida occurs frequently in our environment. Low socio-economic status and poor antenatal clinic visits contributes significantly to its occurrence.

  • Treatment of abdominal pseudocysts and associated ventricuoperitoneal
           shunt failure
    • Authors: Emily Dzongowski; Kamary Coriolano; Sandrine de Ribaupierre; Sarah A. Jones
      Abstract: Purpose The purpose of this study was to determine whether drainage and revision are an effective treatment for abdominal pseudocyst associated ventriculoperitoneal (VP) shunt failure by estimating the total rate of secondary shunt failure. Methods We performed a retrospective review of children with hydrocephalus diagnosed with and treated for an abdominal pseudocyst at the Children’s Hospital, London Health Sciences Centre (LHSC) between January 1, 2000 and May 31, 2016 (ethics approval # 108136). Patients with a VP shunt were included if (i) the development of an abdominal pseudocyst at age 2 to 18 years was identified, (ii) treatment of the pseudocyst by either interventional radiology (IR) or surgical drainage, and (iii) revision of the VP shunt. Demographic data and details of pseudocyst formation/ treatment as well as subsequent failures were identified. Results Twelve patients who had a VP shunt developed abdominal pseudocyst and met inclusion criteria. A 91% shunt failure rate after drainage and shunt revision was identified. Three patients had the pseudocyst drained in interventional radiology and then externalized due to shunt infection. Nine patients were treated by surgical revision. Ten patients experienced recurrent shunt failure following initial drainage of the pseudocyst: pseudocyst reoccurrence (n = 3), distal obstruction from adhesions (n = 1), and uncleared infection (n = 6). Conclusion The results suggest that pseudocyst drainage and shunt revision is ineffective in providing long-term resolution of shunt problems.

  • Severe gyration and migration disorder in fetofetal transfusion syndrome:
           two case reports and a review of the literature on the neurological
           outcome of children with lesions on neuroimaging
    • Authors: Rudolf Ascherl; Ina Sorge; Ulrich Thome; Franz Wolfgang Hirsch; Annett Bläser; Wieland Kiess; Andreas Merkenschlager
      Abstract: Introduction Fetofetal transfusion syndrome is a dreaded cause of morbidity and mortality in monochorionic pregnancies. Case reports We present two pairs of twins one of which we have followed for more than 6 years. The donors suffer from cerebral palsy, orofacial, and motor problems, and both are significantly smaller than their recipient twins. Interestingly, cranial MRI revealed medial frontal lobe polymicrogyria, ventriculomegaly, and decreased thickness in both parietal lobes in both donors. We suggest this as a possible feature of fetofetal transfusion syndrome. Review A minireview of the literature on neuroimaging and neurodevelopmental outcome in fetofetal transfusion syndrome is presented. Conclusion While the close resemblance of the imaging features of both cases is likely incidental further study of a connection between migration and gyration disorders and fetofetal transfusion syndrome is warranted.
