  • A study on maternal-fetal attachment in pregnant women undergoing fetal
           echocardiography

    • Authors: Concetta Polizzi, Giovanna Perricone, Vincenzo Duca, Antonio Carollo, Mariangela Marceca, Valentina Fontana
      Abstract: Purpose: To investigate the possible effects of the fetal echocardiography experience on the prenatal attachment process. The predictive effect of specific women’s psychological variables will be explored as well.Design and methods: This between groups study involved 85 women with pregnancy at risk who underwent the fetal echocardiography, and 83 women who were about to undergo the morphological scan. The tools employed were: the Prenatal Attachment Inventory (P.A.I.) to explore the maternal-fetal attachment; the Maternity Social Support Scale to investigate the woman perception of being socially supported during pregnancy; both the Big Five Questionnaire and the FACES III to explore the personality traits of pregnant women and their perception of their couple relationship functioning.
      Findings: The outcomes of ANOVA do not show statistically significant differences between the two groups of the mothers-to-be with regard to the scores of the P.A.I. (F = .017; p = .897; η2 = .000), while the regression analysis of the possible effect of the maternal psychological variables on the mother-fetus relationship shows a statistically significant result only with regard to the “social support” variable (r2 = .061; df = 80; p = .025).
      Conclusions: It would seem that the process of the prenatal attachment develops independently whether the woman has to undergo a first level screening or a second level examination such as the fetal echocardiography.

  • Structural and cellular changes in fetal renal papilla during development

    • Authors: Laura Vinci, Annalisa Locci, Clara Gerosa, Melania Puddu, Giovanni Ottonello, Vassilios Fanos, Gavino Faa
      Abstract: The mature renal papilla is characterized by medullary collecting ducts, Henle’s loops, vasa recta and the interstitium. Cortical and medullary stromal cells are essential for the regulation of urine concentration and other specialized kidney functions. Mechanisms that direct the renal papilla development are not clearly understood. In recent years, the renal papilla has been identified as a niche for renal stem/progenitor cells in the adult mouse. Studies on experimental animals evidenced a probably common interstitial progenitor for the medullary and cortical stromal cells, characterized by the Foxd1+/PAX2- phenotype. Moreover, Hox10 and Hox11 expression is required for differentiation and patterning of the multiple subtypes of developing medullary interstitial cells. Given the scarcity of morphological and molecular studies on the human renal papilla, this work aimed to evidence morphological changes during human gestation, both in the architecture of the medullary interstitium and in cell types differentiating between the collecting tubules and the Henle’s loops. Future immunohistochemical studies are needed to better identify different interstitial cell types giving rise to the mature interstitium of the renal papilla.

  • Management of bowel intussusception in children: from diagnosis to
           treatment

    • Authors: Anna Maria Caruso, Alessandro Pane, Andrea Scanu, Alessandro Muscas, Roberto Garau, Franco Caddeo, Luigi Mascia
      Abstract: Introduction: Intussusception is the commonest cause of acute in­testinal obstruction in children. Failure of timely diagnosis and treatment results in a surgical emergency leading to fatal outcome. The classic triad of symptoms is seen in less than one-third of the children affected. Aim of this study was to evaluate the comprehensive management of intussusception in children, evaluating the outcome of conservative treatment with hydrostatic ultrasound reduction and surgery.Material and methods: A retrospective analysis was conducted including pediatric patients (up to 14 years old) with diagnosis of bowel intussusception. The management and treatment depended on the patients’ situation: for children in good general conditions initial hydrostatic reduction under continuous ultrasonographic monitoring was attempted; if severe dehydration and/or septic shock was observed, the conservative treatment was contraindicated and direct surgical treatment was performed.Result: A total of 44 pediatric patients were included in the study. The most frequent symptoms observed were paroxysmal abdominal pain (100% of cases) and vomiting (72%); only 29% of patients presented with the classic triad of symptoms (abdominal pain, palpable mass and blood stained stools). 28 patients (64%) were managed conservatively with ultrasound hydrostatic reduction. 10 patients (23%) required primary surgical intervention because of clinical conditions; 6 patients (14%) were operated after failure of conservative approach. The total percentage of operated patients was 36%, with lead points identified in 12 cases.Conclusion: Our data confirm that hydrostatic reduction is a simple, real time procedure, free of radiations, non invasive and safe. Age had no impact on the reducibility whereas bloody stool, a prolonged duration of symptoms and the presence of lead point were risk factors of failure.

  • Focusing on patient safety in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit environment

    • Authors: Ilias Chatziioannidis, George Mitsiakos, Fotis Vouzas
      Abstract: Patient safety in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) environment is an under-researched area, but recently seems to get high priority on the healthcare quality agenda worldwide. NICU, as a highly sensitive and technological driven environment, signals the importance for awareness in causation of mistakes and accidents. Adverse events and near misses that comprise the majority of human errors, cause morbidity often with devastating results, even death. Likewise in other organizations, errors causes are multiple and complex. Other high reliability organizations, such as air force and nuclear industry, offer examples of how standardized/homogenized work and removal of systems weaknesses can minimize errors. It is widely accepted that medical errors can be explained based on personal and/or system approach. The impact/effect of medical errors can be reduced when thorough/causative identification approach is followed by detailed analysis of consequences and prevention measures. NICU’s medical and nursing staff should be familiar with patient safety language, implement best practices, and support safety culture, maximizing efforts for reducing errors. Furthermore, top management commitment and support in developing patient safety culture is essential in order to assure the achievement of the desirable organizational safety outcomes. The aim of the paper is to review patient safety issues in the NICU environment, focusing on development and implementation of strategies, enhancing high quality standards for health care.

  • Olive oil: maternal and pediatric health

    • Authors: Gianfranco Trapani, Liliana Vagliano, Marzia Giribaldi, Laura Cavallarin, Alessandra Coscia
      Abstract: The new base of the pyramid that represents the Mediterranean Diet (MD) includes a balanced lifestyle, healthy cooking methods, traditional, local and eco-friendly products, conviviality, physical activity with an adequate amount of rest, as well as caloric restriction and food frugality. Moreover, it has been confirmed that the main source of MD fat is Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO). EVOO is considered a key feature of the healthy properties of the MD, due to its fatty acid, vitamin and polyphenol composition. However, these components need to be bioavailable to allow EVOO to exert its nutraceutical properties, which include antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, antimicrobial, antiviral and hypoglycemic properties, as well as protective effects on the heart and brain, and during pregnancy and breast feeding. The main phenolic components responsible for the nutraceutical properties of EVOO are hydroxytyrosol, tyrosol and oleuropein. The adopted oil production and extraction technologies, such as extraction at low oxidative stress, determine the final polyphenol content in virgin olive oil.
      Limited information on the epigenetic effects of olive polyphenols is presently available, although the epigenetic effects of many other plant polyphenols have been well documented. In this context, it has been found that, if mothers consume an adequate amount of olive oil during pregnancy, their children will be exposed to a lower risk of wheezing in the first period of their lives.
      In addition, EVOO, because of its oleochantal content, a natural anti-inflammatory substance, may have an effect on many inflammatory diseases, even in the early period of life.

  • Genetic surfactant dysfunction in newborn infants and children with acute
           and chronic lung disease

    • Authors: Marco Somaschini, Silvia Presi, Maurizio Ferrari, Barbara Vergani, Paola Carrera
      Abstract: Mutations in genes encoding surfactant protein B (SP-B), ATP-binding cassette transporter A3 (ABCA3) and surfactant protein C (SP-C) can result in neonatal and pediatric lung disease. We retrospectively reviewed 391 molecular analyses of genes encoding SP-B (SFTPB), SP-C (SFTPC) and ABCA3 (ABCA3) performed in our laboratory from 2000 to 2015 in term and preterm newborn infants with severe respiratory distress syndrome (RDS), infants and children with interstitial lung disease (ILD), chorionic villi for prenatal diagnosis, parents and siblings of affected infants. Direct sequencing of SFTPB, SFTPC and ABCA3 was performed on genomic DNA extracted from peripheral blood. Histopathologic, immunohistochemical and ultrastructural analyses were performed when lung tissue was available. Genetic variants in SFTPB, SFTPC, ABCA3 were identified in 71 of 181 (39%) term and preterm newborn infants tested for severe and unexplained RDS and in 38 of 74 (51%) infants and children with ILD. A higher mortality rate was recorded among term newborn infants with homozygous or compound heterozygous mutations in SFTPB and ABCA3. Light microscopy and immunohistochemical analysis of the lung tissue were performed in 11 infants and electron microscopy in 8. Prenatal diagnosis was performed in 8 women with a previous child who died because of ABCA3 deficiency; 2 fetuses affected, 5 carriers and 1 normal were identified. Surfactant dysfunction was identified in a significant number of newborn infants with severe unexplained respiratory failure and children with ILD, indicating the importance of genetic studies in infants and children with this phenotype. While actual treatment is primarily supportive, early identification is important to establish appropriate management and evaluation of treatment options and to offer genetic counselling and prenatal diagnosis.

  • A model of integrated lung and focused heart ultrasound as a new screening
           examination in infants at risk of respiratory or hemodynamic compromise

    • Authors: Yasser Elsayed, Mohamed Abdelmawla, Michael Narvey, Jens Wrogemann
      Abstract: Objective: This was a feasibility study to determine whether an edu­cational program conducted over 2 days followed by 25 performed studies under supervision equips physicians with the skills to accurately interpret and perform integrated lung ultrasound (LUS) and focused heart ultrasound (FHUS) as a screening exam in infants at risk of respiratory or hemodynamic compromise.Methods: We conducted a training course over 2 days (total of 16 hours) to teach fellows how to interpret a pre-designed model of LUS and FHUS, as a screening exam for infants at risk of respiratory or hemodynamic compromise. Then trainees performed 25 cases with different neonatal lung and functional heart issues. The screening model included only the basic views required to evaluate common lung parenchymal and functional neonatal heart conditions in sick infants. The accuracy of interpretation during the course was assessed by Kappa.Results: The inter-rater agreement between all trainees and instructor improved on the second day of the course to Kappa 0.86 (95% CI: 0.72-0.97) for LUS views and 0.78 (95% CI: 0.69-0.91) for FHUS views. The inter-rater agreement between trainees themselves improved from Kappa 0.64 (95% CI: 0.47-0.81) for LUS on day one to 0.89 (95% CI: 0.81-0.96) on day two. And from 0.58 (95% CI: 0.44-0.73) on day one to 0.75 (95% CI: 0.68-0.84) on day two.Conclusion: Bedside screening, using integrated LUS and FHUS can be a useful adjunct to clinical examination in infants at risk of respiratory or hemodynamic compromise.

  • Immune thrombocytopenia in the newborn

    • Authors: Murat Yurdakök
      Abstract: The leading cause of moderate or severe thrombocytopenia in otherwise healthy appearing neonates is immune thrombocytopenia. Immune thrombocytopenia in the fetus or newborn may result from platelet alloantibodies against paternal antigens inherited by the fetus (alloimmune thrombocytopenia) or platelet autoantibodies in the mother with immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP). Only 10% of human platelet antigen (HPA)-1a negative mothers who are exposed to HPA-1a positive fetal platelets during pregnancy develop HPA-1a alloantibodies, and 30% of fetuses/neonates will develop thrombocytopenia and 20% of these cases being severe. The most serious complication of severe fetal and neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia (FNAIT) is intracranial hemorrhage (ICH), which is detected in 10-20% of affected fetuses/neonates, with most cases occurring antenatally. ICH leads to neurological sequelae in 20%, and deaths in 5-10% cases. There is no evidence-based optimal treatment strategy. Platelet antibody titration in maternal plasma is not helpful for decision-making. The best indicator for current pregnancy is the outcome of the previous pregnancy. The risk of recurrence among subsequent HPA-positive sibling is close to 100% where the previous sibling was affected with antenatal intracranial ICH. The risk of ICH becomes higher with more severe and earlier onset in each subsequent pregnancy. Serial platelet counts should be obtained for the first 5-7 days of delivery to keep the platelet counts higher than 30,000/µL without active bleeding and higher that 50,000-100,000/µL with active bleeding. Intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) is not alternative to platelet transfusions, since platelet counts don’t rise before 24-48 h. In platelet- transfused patients, IVIG can be given to potentially prolong the survival of the incompatible platelets. ITP during pregnancy is not considered a serious risk of perinatal bleeding, but may cause a moderate thrombocytopenia in neonate. In mothers with ITP, the risk of thrombocytopenia is only 10%, with no more than 1% risk of in utero ICH.

  • New human milk fortifiers for the preterm infant

    • Authors: Enrico Bertino, Marzia Giribaldi, Elena Andrea Cester, Alessandra Coscia, Beatrice Maria Trapani, Chiara Peila, Sertac Arslanoglu, Guido Eugenio Moro, Laura Cavallarin
      Abstract: Given its unique nutritional and functional advantages, human milk (HM) should be considered as the first choice for the nutrition of all infants, including preterm newborns. Since its protein, mineral and energy contents are not suitable to meet the high needs of very-low-birth-weight (VLBW) infants, HM should be fortified for these components. Fortification of HM is an important nutritional intervention in order to provide appropriate nutritional intake and appropriate growth. The standard fortification strategy has yielded inadequate protein intakes, resulting in slower growth as compared to preterm formulas. Improvement of outcomes depends on new fortification strategies, considering the large variability of HM composition. Individualized fortification, either targeted or adjustable, has been shown to be effective and practical in attaining adequate protein intakes and growth.
      Most commercially available multi-nutrient fortifiers and protein concentrates are derived from bovine milk (BM), which has a protein composition very different from that of HM. The use of BM proteins has been recently questioned for possible association with intestinal inflammation in VLBW infants. Recently, one HM-based fortifier was shown to be associated with lower necrotizing enterocolitis rates and lower mortality in extremely premature infants, compared to BM-based products. Other milk sources are currently under evaluation: a randomized, controlled, single-blind clinical trial, coordinated by the Neonatal Unit of the University of Turin in collaboration with the Italian National Research Council of Turin and the University of Cagliari, is being carried out to evaluate the adequacy of fortifiers derived from donkey milk for the nutrition of preterm infants.

  • Periodontal microbiota of Sardinian children: comparing 200-year-old
           samples to present-day ones

    • Authors: Germano Orrù, Maria Paola Contu, Eleonora Casula, Cristina Demontis, Cornelio Blus, Serge Szmukler-Moncler, Gabriele Serreli, Carla Maserati, Giorgio Carlo Steri, Vassilios Fanos, Ferdinando Coghe, Gloria Denotti
      Abstract: Introduction: The microrganisms of the human oral cavity include more than 700 species or phenotypes of bacteria. Some “diseases of civilization” are strictly correlated to changes in the microbiome following the food revolution that occurred after WWII. For that reason, a precise recognition of the microbiome profile before and after this period should be useful to determine the health-compatible model of microbiome. The aim of this study was to compare the microbiome profiles (number of total cells, and pathogen types) of dental samples obtained from two distinct groups of children, a 200-year-old retrieved one and a present one.
      Methods: Two different groups of samples have been studied. The first group was a set of 50 recent subgingival plaque samples obtained from children of age 2-8 years, 14 males and 36 females. They were enrolled by the Department of Dental Disease Prevention (University of Cagliari, in Sardinia, Italy) during standard dental care procedures. None reported periodontal disease and none had been under antibiotic therapy during the previous 6 months. The second group was an old retrieved group that included 24 teeth from 6 different 6- to 8-year-old crania fragments; they were obtained from a 200-year-old charnel-house located in Villaputzu, a city close to Cagliari. Representative periodontal bacteria have been identified by a previously published real-time PCR procedure (Sokransky et al., 1998) in which P. gingivalis and T. forsythia (red complex), A. actinomycetemcomitans (green complex) and F. nucleatum (orange complex) were detected. In addition, the title of each pathogen was expressed as a percentage of the total bacteria (biofilm) in the sample.
      Results and discussion: The profile of periodontal microbiomes, between recent/ancient samples showed a significant difference relative to Sokransky’s red complex bacteria (p < 0.05). In all analyzed periodontal strains, the pathogenic bacteria P. gingivalis and T. forsythia showed the highest title in the recent group.
      Conclusions: Our hypothesis is that the transfer of “commensal-pathogen” as an absolute number on the oral biofilm might be linked to the distinct alimentary habits of the two populations. Some diet rich in reducing agents, such as processed meat-based foods, might be able to increase the average number of pathogen anaerobic bacteria in the oral microbiota. The outcome would be an increase of the oral systemic diseases reported with these pathogens. Our data suggest that the ancient Sardinian population was able to control the pathogen oral anaerobic biofilm by some diet rich in antioxidant compounds. Further investigations are required to focus on the genetic profile and the health status of this ancient population but it appears that molecular microbiology might be considered as the “time machine” in oral biology.

  • Zika virus from a neonatologist’s perspective

    • Authors: Anna Zylak, Sergio G. Golombek
      Abstract: Zika virus has been known for more than half a century. Its clinical significance was just recently discovered, after the epidemic of Zika virus emerged in South and Central America. A task force established in 2015 by the Brazil Ministry of Health investigated the possible association between congenital Zika infection and microcephaly in fetuses and newborns. Since then more and more evidence emerged, supporting this hypothesis. The objective of this article is to review and summarize the currently available literature regarding Zika virus from a neonatologist’s standpoint and provide some guidance to medical providers who may have to care for potentially exposed pregnant patients and their newborns.

  • Breast milk cell components and its beneficial effects on neonates: need
           for breast milk cell banking

    • Authors: Pankaj Kaingade, Indumathi Somasundaram, Amar Nikam, Padmanav Behera, Sachin Kulkarni, Jagdish Patel
      Abstract: Universal breastfeeding has been a stated policy of the American Academy of Pediatrics, the World Health Organization as well as UNICEF. Human milk is considered as the gold standard for infants owing to its colossal nutritional values. However, the presence of various cellular components of breast milk have been gaining more attention in recent years since the first discovery of mammary stem cells in 2007, thereby providing a ray of hope not only for growth and immunity of the neonate but also an insight into its regenerative applicability. In this relation, this article summarizes the cell components of breast milk that have been identified to date. It highlights the beneficial effects of these cells for term and preterm delivered infants along with the need for breast milk and its cell banking.

  • Manual ward reduction of gastroschisis without anesthesia, a safe
           procedure – 8 years experience

    • Authors: Kamal Nain Rattan, Pallavi Sonika, Richa Singh, Kuldeep Yadav, Dayanand Hota
      Abstract: Introduction: Gastroschisis is the most common type of abdominal wall defect at birth. Various modalities of treatment have been proposed ranging from primary closure to the staged closure using prosthetic materials under general anesthesia. One of the modalities is manual ward reduction with primary repair of gastroschisis without anesthesia. We are reporting our 8 years of experience with manual ward reduction of gastroschisis with primary repair without anesthesia.Materials and methods: It is a retrospective analysis of all patients of gastroschisis who presented in our institution from January 2008 to June 2016. The data were analyzed for antenatal diagnosis, sex, day of presentation, weight of baby, associated anomalies, management by manual reduction without anesthesia and post reduction morbidity and mortality.Results: Out of a total of 68 patients, 28 were females and 40 were males. Fifty-five cases (80.8%) were antenatally diagnosed. Fifty-nine patients (86.7%) presented within 24 hours of birth while the rest had delayed presentation. Preterms (< 37 weeks) were 18 (26.4%). Cases of simple gastroschisis were 22 while those complicated were 46. The average birth weight was 1.88 kg with the lowest weight of 1 kg who was a 27-week preterm. In 60 patients (88.2%), bedside manual reduction without anesthesia and primary closure was possible while in 8 patients it could not be done owing to delayed presentation and complications. The mortality in these patients was 40%.Conclusion: Manual reduction and primary closure of gastroschisis without anesthesia is a safe procedure. It requires no ventilator support and can be managed with antibiotics, total parenteral nutrition (TPN) and continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) in the post-reduction period.

  • Predictors of prognosis in neonates with congenital diaphragmatic hernia:
           experience of 12 years

    • Authors: Catarina Granjo Morais, Gustavo Rocha, Filipa Flor-de-Lima, Paulo Éden, Ana Catarina Fragoso, Hercília Guimarães
      Abstract: Introduction: Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is a severe malformation, displaying relevant mortality and morbidity rates in newborns.Aim: To characterize clinically and demographically all neonatal cases of CDH admitted to a level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit during a 12-year period and to evaluate the predictive value of baseline characteristics on mortality and morbidity at discharge.Methods: Maternal/infant clinical and electronic records were ret-
      rospectively reviewed. All neonates with posterolateral CDH admitted between January 2003 and December 2014 were included.Results: Fifty-three newborns were included. Overall mortality during hospitalization was 22/53 (41.5%). Clinical characteristics associated with mortality were the presence of intrathoracic liver (p = 0.005), intrathoracic stomach (p = 0.015), elevated arterial pCO2 or lower pH values at admission (respectively, p = 0.001 and p < 0.001), pre-ductal oxygen saturation < 85% at admission (p = 0.012) and surgical repair with prosthetic patch (p = 0.041). Morbidity at discharge was reported in 7 (22.6%) survivors. Stomach herniation and sepsis were associated with higher morbidity (respectively, p = 0.012 and p = 0.029). In a logistic regression, patch repair was the only variable with predictive value for death during hospitalization, with an odds ratio (OR) of 15 (95% CI 0.98-228.9), and intrathoracic stomach was a predictor of morbidity at discharge (OR = 15.7, 95% CI 1.4-174.2).Conclusion: Structural characteristics, namely defect size and presence of intrathoracic stomach, remain the primary determinants of neonatal prognosis in CDH. Although post-natal approaches have progressively proven their value in increasing survival and improving management of high-risk cases, future researches should continue focusing on the definition of foetal anatomical markers of severity and prenatal treatment of CDH.

  • Cholestasis in the newborn: experience of a level III Neonatal Intensive
           Care Unit during 19 years

    • Authors: Carolina Carneiro, Susana Pissarra, Filipa Flor-de-Lima, Sandra Costa, Hercília Guimarães
      Abstract: Introduction: Neonatal cholestasis is a rare and always pathological condition that must be distinguished from physiologic jaundice of the newborn. It is characterized by a conjugated hyperbilirubinemia with accumulation of biliary products due to multiple causes, some of which need prompt treatment. The objectives of this study are to characterize a population of neonates with neonatal cholestasis in a level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and to identify predictors of mortality.
      Materials and methods: All patients presenting cholestasis and admitted to “Centro Hospitalar São João” NICU from January 1996 to December 2014 were included.
      Results: A total of 83 newborns were included with a prevalence of prematurity of 78.3% and of major malformations of 30.1%. Sixty-seven newborns developed sepsis and 71 needed total parenteral nutrition for a median length of 32 days. A multifactorial etiology for cholestasis was found in 57.8%; extra- and intrahepatic diseases accounted for 19.3% and 22.9% of the cases, respectively. Maximum values for total bilirubin (TB) and direct bilirubin (DB) were significantly higher in newborns who died (TB: median 22.9 versus 13.5 mg/dl, p = 0.005; DB: median 15.0 versus 6.4 mg/dl, p = 0.009). The same was observed for minimum values of albumin and total proteins. Ursodeoxycholic acid (UDCA) was more often used in patients that survived than in those that died (50.9% versus 19.2%) and this difference was statistically significant (p = 0.007).
      Conclusions: Cholestasis in our NICU has a multifactorial etiology and a prevalence of 1%. TB and total proteins can be used as predictors of mortality in newborns with cholestasis. Higher levels of DB and lower levels of albumin were also associated with worse prognosis with a statistically significant difference between the groups. UDCA is a possible agent in this context and clinicians should be reminded of its utility.

  • The evolution of parental self-efficacy in knowledge and skill in the home
           care of preterm infants

    • Authors: Nicolette Anne Ribeiro, Jordan S. Kase
      Abstract: Background: The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends the consideration of the ability and confidence of a caregiver to take care of a preterm infant before discharge (D/C).Objective: To identify how parental self-efficacy as measured by the Infant Care Survey (ICS) evolves during their preterm child’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) admission, and to identify conditions associated with caregiver confidence.
      Methods: Prospective cohort study involving parents of infants ≤ 32 weeks gestation who were enrolled between 10-20 days of their infant’s life. Parent/infant demographic, pregnancy, NICU, and D/C data was collected. Parents responded to the ICS at enrollment and D/C. Enrollment and D/C ICS scores were compared to one another using a Paired Samples t-test to assess the change in scores over time. Further, conditions which are thought to affect self-efficacy were compared to enrollment, D/C, and the change in total ICS scores to assess for correlations.
      Results: Total ICS scores showed significant improvement from enrollment to D/C: (188.3 ± 60.5 vs. 235.9 ± 20.9). When comparing caregivers who did not have other children in the home to parents who did, caregivers without previous children had significantly lower ICS scores at enrollment (149.8 ± 64.0 vs. 221.7 ± 31.2); however, D/C ICS scores were similar (228.7 ± 23.1 vs. 242.1 ± 17.2). This was the result of a more profound improvement in self-efficacy amongst first time parents during their child’s NICU admission (79.0 ± 68.1 vs. 20.3 ± 35.2).
      Conclusion: Despite the stress and anxiety of having a child in the NICU, parental self-efficacy is likely to significantly improve during their child’s hospitalization. This was most evident amongst first time parents. We suspect that parental participation in their infant’s care and formal educational opportunities contribute to improvement in confidence over time.

  • The relationship between mental health and spiritual intelligence of
           parents of hospitalized premature neonates in the NICU

    • Authors: Naghmeh Razaghi, Akram Gazerani, Tahereh Sadeghi
      Abstract: Objective: To study the relationship between mental health and spiritual intelligence of parents of the premature neonates that are hospitalized in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU).
      Materials and methods: This descriptive, cross-sectional study included 152 fathers and mothers of premature neonates. A questionnaire was delivered containing demographic data and Goldberg’s Assessment of Mental Health. A score of 23 or higher suggested the presence of mental disorders and scores lower than 23 indicated mental health.
      Results: There was a significant direct relationship between mothers’ mental health and spiritual intelligence; that is, mothers with high spiritual intelligence had a higher level of mental health (p = 0.020, r = 0.225). The linear regression analysis of the mothers’ mental health and spiritual intelligence was significant.
      Conclusion: Mothers with higher spiritual intelligence had a higher level of mental health, while there was no significant direct correlation between spiritual intelligence and mental health of the fathers.

  • Allergic enterocolitis in a preterm newborn

    • Authors: Clara Preto, Dulce Oliveira, Ana Cristina Braga, Rosa Lima, Elisa Proença
      Abstract: We report the case of an infant born at 28 weeks of gestation with a history of intestinal dysmotility over the first week of life, which was solved with the introduction of erythromycin. The infant was fed with breast milk and sporadic doses of special formula for preterm newborns. On the 17th day of life, post conceptional age of 30 weeks, she presented an episode of necrotizing enterocolitis treated with antibiotics. On the 45th day of life, post conceptional age of 34 weeks, the infant presented episodes of apnea, hemodynamic instability, abdominal distension, vomiting and mucous and bloody stools. Owing to the suspicion of a new episode of necrotizing enterocolitis, feeding was stopped and antibiotic therapy was started. Hypereosinophilia was detected in peripheral blood and tests were positive for specific IgE antibodies to cow’s milk proteins. Antibiotics were stopped after negative sepsis workups and feeding with breastmilk and extensively hydrolyzed formula was resumed. The newborn presented with good tolerance.
      Diagnosing allergy to cow’s milk protein in a newborn infant requires a high degree of suspicion, as it presents with non-specific symptoms. In most cases it manifests as non-IgE-mediated proctocolitis and cases of enterocolitis with specific IgE antibodies to cow’s milk proteins are rare. Some authors argue that the development of cow’s milk protein allergy requires an immunological maturation level not present before a gestational age of 30-32 weeks. Therefore, in preterm newborns, there may be an asymptomatic period of life with subsequent development of an allergy. In the case described, the diagnosis of IgE-mediated cow’s milk protein allergy was confirmed at 34 weeks of post conceptional age. However, the question remains whether the previous digestive symptoms were related to the allergy subsequently diagnosed.

  • Childhood Morgagni hernia: report of two cases

    • Authors: Kamal Nain Rattan, Jasbir Singh, Poonam Dalal
      Abstract: Morgagni diaphragmatic hernia is a rare congenital anomaly to be seen in the pediatric age group. We are reporting two cases of Morgagni hernia, which presented with non-specific symptoms and posed a diagnostic dilemma. One of the patients was 10 years old and associated with asplenia and Down’s syndrome; the second case presented as isolated Morgagni hernia in an 8 month baby. The diagnosis was confirmed with radiography and computed chest tomography. Both cases were managed successfully with surgical repair of the diaphragmatic defect through trans-abdominal approach.

  • Congenital anomalies: 15 years of experience in a level III hospital

    • Authors: Carolina Félix, Filipa Flor-de-Lima, Susana Pissarra, Fátima Clemente, Paulo Soares, Manuela Rodrigues, Gustavo Rocha, Maria Beatriz Guedes, Carla Ramalho, Hercília Guimarães
      Abstract: Background: Congenital anomalies (CAs) are a leading cause of fetal and infant mortality and morbidity worldwide. They may be identified prenatally, at the moment of birth or later in life.Purpose: To describe the cases of CAs registered over the last 15 years at a level III hospital, comparing individuals who were detected through prenatal (preN) diagnosis with those detected through postnatal (postN) diagnosis.Methods: All records were collected from the Registo Nacional de Anomalias Congénitas (RENAC) online platform between 1st January 2000 to 31st December 2014, in a level III hospital, where cases of CAs were notified voluntarily (n = 1,222). We tested differences for selected variables between the years in study. A multivariate analysis was performed to identify potential factors associated to preN diagnosis.Results: We observed a total of 1,510 anomalies, being 493 (40.3%) circulatory, 252 (20.6%) chromosomal, 187 (15.3%) musculoskeletal, 138 (11.3%) digestive, 133 (10.9%) urinary, 117 (9.6%) nervous, 37 (3.0%) respiratory, 35 (2.9%) genital, 25 (2%) anomalies of the eye, ear, face and neck, 20 (1.6%) cleft lip/cleft palate and 73 (6.0%) others. Time of diagnosis was known for all subjects: 770 (63.0%) were diagnosed prenatally and 452 (37.0%) were diagnosed at birth or during the first month of life. We found statistically significant differences between groups for several variables. Assisted reproduction techniques (p = 0.023), maternal medications during the first trimester of pregnancy (p = 0.004) and the number of anomalies per individual (p ≤ 0.001) had a statistically significant impact on receiving preN diagnosis.Conclusion: Our data confirm the importance of both RENAC national database and preN diagnosis in improving perinatal healthcare. However, in order to determine the national prevalence of CAs and understand any involved factors, it is desirable to enhance the notification in the whole country, facilitating the adjustment of national protocols to achieve a better perinatal counseling and surveillance.

  • Retinopathy of prematurity: results from 10 years in a single neonatal
           intensive care unit

    • Authors: Inês Coutinho, Catarina Pedrosa, Mafalda Mota, Sofia Azeredo-Lopes, Cristina Santos, Graça Pires, Susana Teixeira, Manuel Cunha
      Abstract: Introduction: Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) is a vasoproliferative disorder of the retina of preterm newborns and is an important and preventable cause of visual impairment in childhood. This study aimed to assess the incidence and main risk factors associated with the development of ROP in the last 10 years at Hospital Prof. Doutor Fernando Fonseca in Lisbon, Portugal.Methods: Observational and retrospective study conducted between 2005 and 2014 at Hospital Prof. Doctor Fernando Fonseca. The study included newborns of gestational age < 32 weeks. We analyzed maternal, prenatal and neonatal factors associated with the development of ROP. Statistical analysis were performed with Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS®) software. Univariate and multivariate analyses were performed and a multiple logistic regression model was carried out with a significance level α = 0.05.Results: 527 premature infants with a gestational age < 32 weeks were studied, of which 165 developed ROP. 60 of these patients needed treatment. In the univariate analysis, the risk factors for the development of ROP were maternal infection in pregnancy, low birth weight, low gestational age, low Apgar score at 5 minutes, need for oxygen therapy until the 28th day of life, a high score on the CRIB and SNAPPE2 scales, use of surfactant, respiratory distress syndrome, persistence of patent ductus arteriosus, peri-intraventricular hemorrhage and neonatal sepsis. In the multiple logistic regression analysis, risk factors for ROP were the presence of neonatal sepsis, respiratory distress syndrome, persistence of patent ductus arteriosus and a high score on the neonatal SNAPPE2 scale.Conclusions: We found a ROP incidence rate of 31.3%, with risk factors similar to those observed in other studies.

  • The rabbit nephrogenic zone in culture: past, present and future as a
           model to investigate causes of impaired nephrogenesis

    • Authors: Will W. Minuth
      Abstract: In preterm infants, intrauterine as well as extrauterine influences are held responsible for causing prematurity of renal parenchyma and impaired nephrogenesis, leading to a high incidence of severe kidney diseases later in life. Although involved noxae and resulting molecular effects are quite different, all of them converge to the nephrogenic zone which is restricted to the outer cortex of a developing kidney. Covered by the organ capsule, it consists of aligned ureteric bud-derived collecting duct (CD) ampullae containing epithelial stem cells, nephrogenic mesenchymal stem cells, renal vesicles and S-shaped bodies.
      Owing to the complex composition of the nephrogenic zone and the different noxae, it is appropriate to investigate impaired nephrogenesis with an adequate in vitro system. In this case, isolation and culture of the nephrogenic zone from neonatal rabbit kidney is particularly well-suited. As compared to human specimens, it exhibits to a large extend a comparable microarchitecture. However, a decisive advantage is that it can be easily and quickly isolated in original composition with microsurgical techniques. Thus, pieces of the explant are available to a variety of advanced culture experiments. Formation of renal spheroids can be used for drug toxicity testing. Mounting in a tissue carrier makes it possible to register functional differentiation of the CD epithelium. Perfusion culture within an artificial interstitium enables investigation of spatial development of tubules. The present article has been written to inform about past and present results, recognized risks and future challenges.

  • Outcome of premature neonates born in a tertiary neonatal intensive care
           unit in Nairobi, Kenya

    • Authors: Atul Patel, Yogavijayan Kandasamy
      Abstract: In this retrospective review, premature neonates less than 34 weeks gestation admitted to a tertiary neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) in Nairobi, Kenya from February 2012 to October 2015 were identified from medical records and database. There were 88 neonates admitted to the neonatal unit, out of which 78 survived. There were 10 pairs of twins and 1 set of triplets. The gestational age ranged from 26 weeks to 33.7 weeks gestation, with a mean gestation of 30.3 (± 1.8) weeks, and a mean birth weight of 1,508 (± 381) g. The smallest neonate who survived weighed 800 g. Smaller babies needed mechanical ventilation for a longer duration and stayed longer in NICU. Less than half of the neonates in our cohort received antenatal dexamethasone. We plan to have further discussion with the obstetricians to increase antenatal steroid use. Ten babies died during this period. With improved perinatal care in Kenya, we anticipate better survival and outcome of these preterm babies.
