OBJECTIVE: To examine the medical assessment and triage of pediatric patients with anorexia nervosa (AN) initially seen in primary care. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study was conducted for all pediatric patients with AN who had eating/weight concerns and initially identified symptoms in primary care in a single health care system between January 1, 2010, and December 31, 2016. Information on presenting concern, medical assessment/laboratory tests, clinical diagnoses, treatment recommendations, and referrals were abstracted from the medical record...

OBJECTIVES: We performed preclinical validation of intraoperative fiber-optic confocal microscopy (FCM) and assessed its safety and efficacy in an ovine model of the pediatric heart. METHODS: Intraoperative imaging was performed using an FCM system (Cellvizio, Mauna Kea Technology, Paris, France) with specialized imaging miniprobe (GastroFlex UHD, Mauna Kea Technologies). Before imaging, we applied an extracellular fluorophore, sodium fluorescein, to fluorescently label extracellular space...

BACKGROUND: The use of coronary computed tomography (CT) angiography in children with coronary artery anomalies is increasing. However, it remains technically demanding and the need to adapt acquisition parameters to a patient's cardiac characteristics has not yet been addressed. The aim of the study was to prospectively assess the feasibility of personalized multiphasic coronary CT angiography for pediatric patients. METHODS: Fifty pediatric patients (mean age 6...

Mucopolysaccharidosis type III (MPS III; Sanfilippo disease) is primarily characterized by neurocognitive decline with limited somatic disease. Only few reports addressed cardiac disease (CD) in MPS III. We investigated the prevalence of CD in a relatively large cohort of patients. In this cross-sectional study, extensive echocardiographic studies were performed in 30 MPS III patients (16 patients <18 years), all without clinical symptoms of CD. Results were compared to data from matched controls. The mean global longitudinal strain on speckle-tracking echocardiography (STE) was impaired in both pediatric and adult patients vs controls (resp...

INTRODUCTION: Clenbuterol hydrochloride is a selective beta-2 adrenergic agonist with uses in both humans and animals. Ingestions occurring within the United States are generally due to incidental ingestion of a veterinary product, use as a cutting agent for illicit substances, or illegal use for performance-enhancing purposes. CASE REPORT: A four-and-a-half year-old male presented approximately two-and-a-half hours after an accidental ingestion of an unknown quantity of clenbuterol...

OBJECTIVES: To raise awareness among pediatric intensive care specialists of catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia; an uncommon cause of polymorphic ventricular tachycardia and ventricular fibrillation arrest in children and young adults where epinephrine (adrenaline), even when given according to international protocols, can be counter-productive and life-threatening. We review three cases of cardiac arrest in children, later proven to be catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia related, where delay in recognition of this condition resulted in significantly longer resuscitation efforts, more interventions, and a longer time to return of spontaneous circulation...

Background: The beneficial effects of atrial septal defect (ASD) device closure on electrical cardiac remodeling are well established. The timing at which these effects starts to take place has yet to be determined. Objectives: To determine the immediate and short term effects of ASD device closure on cardiac electric remodeling in children. Methods: 30 pediatric patients were subjected to 12 lead Electrocardiogram immediately before ASD device closure, 24 h post procedure, 1 and 6 months after...

INTRODUCTION: Loperamide is a readily accessible nonprescription medication that is increasingly being used surreptitiously as an opioid substitute to alleviate the symptoms of acute opioid withdrawal. The objective of this study was to determine the clinical characteristics of patients with loperamide misuse and toxicity. METHODS: The ToxIC registry, a nationwide, prospectively collected cohort of patients evaluated by medical toxicologists was searched from November 2011-December 2016 for patients with loperamide exposure...

OBJECTIVES: To assess the impact of participation in an educational presentation on electrocardiogram (ECG) interpretation in children on pediatric practitioners' ability to accurately interpret ECGs. STUDY DESIGN: Pediatric healthcare providers at a pediatric clinic with >65 000 visits/year were eligible to participate. A 1-hour ECG educational module that provided a systematic approach to ECG interpretation was presented to 8 providers who consented (6 pediatricians, 2 pediatric nurse practitioners)...

The original version of this article unfortunately contained three mistakes. In Table 1, the last line under "Key Inclusion Criteria" should read "Normal or clinically acceptable ECGs at screening and at day - 1." In addition, the abbreviation "IP" in the legend to Table 1 stands for "investigational product."

Andersen-Tawil syndrome (ATS) is a disorder that causes episodes of muscle weakness (periodic paralysis), changes in heart rhythm, and developmental abnormalities. QT prolongation and ventricular arrhythmias, including bidirectional ventricular tachycardia (VT) and polymorphic VT, may occur. About 60% of all cases of the disorder arecaused by mutations in the KCNJ2 gene. A 13-year-old female patient was referred for frequent premature ventricular contractions. Suspicion of ATS due to dysmorphic findings, electrocardiogram changes, and periodic muscle weakness was genetically confirmed...

We aimed to determine the frequency of blood glucose and electrocardiogram (EKG) abnormalities in previously healthy children who present to an emergency department (ED) with a diagnosis of benign syncope. Chart review of consecutive children aged 5 to 18 years presenting to the pediatric ED from 2004 to 2014 with a discharge diagnosis of benign syncope was done. Of 969 patients, hypoglycemia (serum glucose <60 mg/dL) was present in only 3 cases (0.3%). Of 754 patients with EKG performed, only 4 cases (0...

INTRODUCTION: In the pediatric Appropriate Use Criteria (AUC), abnormal electrocardiogram (ECG) in an asymptomatic patient has been rated as an "Appropriate" indication for transthoracic echocardiogram (TTE). We hypothesized that the yield of abnormal findings on TTE for this indication will be low. METHODS: All asymptomatic patients (≤ 18 years) from January 1, 2015 to December 31, 2017 who underwent initial outpatient evaluation at our center and had a TTE ordered for an abnormal ECG, were included...
