Gastroschisis (GS) is a full-thickness abdominal wall defect in which fetal intestine herniates alongside the umbilical cord into the intrauterine cavity, resulting in an intestinal injury of variable severity. An increased prevalence of gastroschisis has been observed across several continents and is a focus of epidemiologic study. Prenatal diagnosis of GS is common and allows for delivery planning and treatment in neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) by collaborative interdisciplinary teams (...

OBJECTIVE In infants with gastroschisis, outcomes were compared between those where operative reduction and fascial closure were attempted ≤24 hours of age (PC), and those who underwent planned closure of their defect >24 hours of age following reduction with a pre-formed silo (SR). SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Inadequate evidence exists to determine how best to treat infants with gastroschisis. METHODS A secondary analysis was conducted of data collected 2006-2008 using the British Association of...

Background One of the controversies in the management of twin gestations relates to mode of delivery, especially when the second twin is in a nonvertex presentation (Vertex/nonVertex pairs) and birth is imminent at extremely low gestation. Objective We hypothesized that, for Vertex/nonVertex twins born before 28 weeks’ gestation, cesarean delivery would be associated with a lower risk of adverse neonatal outcomes than trial of vaginal delivery. Our aim was to test this hypothesis by comparing th...

Objectives To examine rates and determinants of mother’s own milk (MOM) feeding at hospital discharge in a cohort of infants born very preterm within the Canadian Neonatal Network (CNN). Study design This was a population-based cohort study of infants born at Results Among the 6404 infants born very preterm and discharged home during the study period, 4457 (70%) received MOM or MOM supplemented with formula. Rates of MOM feeding at discharge varied from 49% to 87% across NICUs. Determinants asso...

Germ cell tumors in infants are most frequently extragonadal, benign and amenable to surgical resection. An unusual feature of germ cell tumors is the potential coexistence of malignant with benign disease which makes it possible for patients with an incompletely resected tumors to experience either a benign or malignant recurrence. A challenge to postoperative surveillance is the interpretation of serum alpha fetoprotein (AFP), a marker of malignancy, that is physiologically elevated during the...

Objective To develop and validate an itemized costing algorithm for in-patient neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) costs for infants born prematurely that can be used for quality improvement and health economic analyses. Study design We sourced patient resource use data from the Canadian Neonatal Network database, with records from infants admitted to 30 tertiary NICUs in Canada. We sourced unit cost inputs from Ontario hospitals, schedules of benefits, and administrative sources. Costing estima...

OBJECTIVE: To develop an international Core Outcome Set (COS), a minimal collection of outcomes that should be measured and reported in all future clinical trials evaluating treatments of acute simple appendicitis in children. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA A previous systematic review identified 115 outcomes in 60 trials and systematic reviews evaluating treatments for children with appendicitis, suggesting the need for a COS. METHODS The development process consisted of four phases: (1) an updated sy...

Abstract Identifying pulmonary nodules for resection that are small or are deep within the lung parenchyma is a frequently encountered challenge during video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS). Several image-guided localizing techniques have been described; however, there is limited literature on using these techniques in pediatric patients. We assessed the feasibility of using a commercially available ethylene-vinyl alcohol polymer (EVOH) as an alternative technique for lung nodule localizat...
