OBJECTIVES: To assess whether better baseline pulmonary hemodynamics or positive acute vasoreactivity testing (AVT) during cardiac catheterization are associated with improved outcomes in infants with bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) and pulmonary hypertension (PH). STUDY DESIGN: This retrospective, single-center study included 26 premature neonates with BPD who underwent catheterization to evaluate PH. AVT was assessed with exposure to 100% fractional inspired oxygen with or without inhaled nitric oxide...

A comparison of 23 children with inflammatory bowel disease presenting with musculoskeletal symptoms and 46 children with arthritis of other causes yielded significantly higher rates in the inflammatory bowel disease group of sacroiliitis, arthralgia, additive and recurrent arthritis, microcytic anemia, elevated inflammatory markers, and hypoalbuminemia. Clinical awareness of these findings could expedite diagnosis and treatment.

OBJECTIVE: To determine patterns of respiratory medications used in neonatal intensive care unit graduates. STUDY DESIGN: The Prematurity Respiratory Outcomes Program enrolled 835 babies <29 weeks of gestation in the first week. Of 751 survivors, 738 (98%) completed at least 1, and 85% completed all 4, postdischarge medication usage in-person/telephone parental questionnaires requested at 3, 6, 9, and 12 months of corrected age. Respiratory drug usage over the first year of life after in neonatal intensive care unit discharge was analyzed...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the efficacy of a hospital-based intervention that transitions into existing community support, in enhancing developmental outcomes at 2 years of corrected age in infants born at less than 32 weeks. STUDY DESIGN: In total, 323 families of 384 infants born <32 weeks were randomized to receive intervention or care-as-usual. The intervention teaches parents coping skills, partner support, and effective parenting strategies over 4 hospital-based and 4 home-phone sessions...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the diagnostic and prognostic usefulness of the serum matrix metallopeptidase-7 (MMP-7) level for biliary atresia in infants with cholestasis after hepatoportoenterostomy. STUDY DESIGN: We enrolled 100 infants with cholestasis (age, 43.56 ± 1.97 days; 62 males) with a direct bilirubin level of >1 mg/dL, of whom 36 (36%) were diagnosed with biliary atresisa. The MMP-7 levels in serum samples collected during the cholestasis workup and 6 months after hepatoportoenterostomy were assessed by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay...

OBJECTIVE: To examine whether a primary care provider (PCP) follow-up visit after emergency department evaluation of concussion improved the children's likelihood of receiving academic support. STUDY DESIGN: This was a prospective cohort study. Concussed children, aged 8-18 years, presenting to a regional pediatric trauma center emergency department (n = 160) were contacted 7 and 30 days after injury to gather data on PCP follow-up, symptoms, quality of life, and receipt of academic support instituted after and because of the concussion...

The evolution of pulmonary arteriovenous malformations (PAVMs) over time in children with hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT) is not well-defined. Herein we demonstrate that, although new PAVMs did not evolve in children with HHT, existing PAVMs exhibit quantitative growth over time highlighting the need for ongoing follow-up throughout childhood.

OBJECTIVES: To develop a scale for the severity of mononucleosis. STUDY DESIGN: One to 5 percent of college students develop infectious mononucleosis annually, and about 10% meet criteria for chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) 6 months following infectious mononucleosis. We developed a severity of mononucleosis scale based on a review of the literature. College students were enrolled, generally when they were healthy. When the students developed infectious mononucleosis, an assessment was made as to the severity of their infectious mononucleosis independently by 2 physicians using the severity of mononucleosis scale...

Alveolar capillary dysplasia typically presents with neonatal pulmonary hypertension and early mortality. However, there is growing evidence for a subset of disease with atypical late onset and/or prolonged survival. Here, we present the variable clinical, genetic, and pathology findings of 4 such patients.
