    Epidemiology, management and outcome of ultrashort bowel syndrome in infancy.
    Arch Dis Child Fetal Neonatal Ed 2017 Sep 2. Epub 2017 Sep 2.
    Department of Paediatric Gastroenterology, Southampton Children's Hospital, Southampton, UK.
    Ultrashort bowel syndrome (USBS) is a group of heterogeneous disorders where the length of small bowel is less than 10 cm or 10% of expected for the age. It is caused by massive loss of the gut which in the neonatal period can be a result of vanishing gastroschisis or surgical resection following mid-gut volvulus, jejunoileal atresia and/or extensive necrotising enterocolitis. The exact prevalence of USBS is not known although there is a clear trend towards increasing numbers because of increased incidence and improved survival. Read More

    Socioeconomic inequity in survival for deliveries at 22-24 weeks of gestation.
    Arch Dis Child Fetal Neonatal Ed 2017 Aug 28. Epub 2017 Aug 28.
    Department of Neonatal Medicine, Maternal and Perinatal Center, Tokyo Women's Medical University, Tokyo, Japan.
    Objective: Guidelines recommend individual decision making on resuscitating infants of 22-24 weeks' gestational age (GA) at birth. When the decision not to resuscitate is made, infants would likely die soon after delivery, and under some circumstances such neonatal deaths may be registered as stillbirths occurring during delivery (intrapartum stillbirth). Thus we assessed whether socioeconomic factors are associated with peridelivery deaths (during or within 1 hour of delivery) of infants delivered at 22-24 weeks' gestation. Read More

    How to feed a baby recovering from necrotising enterocolitis when maternal milk is not available.
    Arch Dis Child Fetal Neonatal Ed 2017 Aug 5. Epub 2017 Aug 5.
    Newcastle Neonatal Service, Newcastle Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust & Newcastle University, Newcastle upon Tyne, UK.
    Necrotising enterocolitis (NEC) is a devastating disease with significant mortality and serious adverse outcomes in at least 50% including short gut and poor neurodevelopment. Research and management are complicated by a lack of robust clinical markers, and without histological confirmation, there is a risk of both underdiagnosis and overdiagnosis. Interunit variations in the thresholds for surgical referral, laparotomy and postmortem rates mean the actual incidence is difficult to determine, especially because the histological term 'NEC' is used in practice to describe a heterogeneous clinical syndrome.
