Measurement properties of instruments for assessment of cervical spine function in infants with torticollis: a systematic review.

Eur J Pediatr 2019 May 18;178(5):657-671. Epub 2019 Feb 18.

Department of Physiotherapy, Trinity College, Dublin University, Dublin 2, Ireland.

The aim of this study was to systematically review the measurement properties of instruments which assess cervical spine function in infants with torticollis. Electronic searches were performed in MEDLINE, CINAHL, Embase, Web of Science and the Cochrane Library, combining three constructs ('torticollis', 'cervical spine assessment' and 'measurement properties'). Two reviewers independently rated the methodological quality and the quality of measurement properties of identified articles, using both the COSMIN (COnsensus-based Standards for the selection of health status Measurement INstruments) checklist and quality criteria for measurement properties.

Energy drinks in children and adolescents: demographic data and immediate effects.

Eur J Pediatr 2019 May 15;178(5):649-656. Epub 2019 Feb 15.

Pediatric Department, Saint Vincent De Paul Hospital, Faculty of Medicine, Bar-Ilan University, PO box 50294, 16102, Nazareth, Israel.

Energy drinks consumption has become increasingly common in the last few years, despite evidence associating these products with vast adverse health effects. This led us to explore the phenomenon of energy drinks consumption in adolescents in the Israeli Arab population of the Nazareth area (Northern Israel), examining their awareness of risks associated with consumption of energy drinks, investigating their immediate effects on the body. Our study revealed that the consumption of energy drinks is very common in adolescents of both sexes, though more common in boys. Read More

Growth impairment and limited range of joint motion in children should raise suspicion of an attenuated form of mucopolysaccharidosis: expert opinion.

Eur J Pediatr 2019 Apr 11;178(4):593-603. Epub 2019 Feb 11.

Groupe de Pédiatrie Générale - Société Française de Pédiatrie, Boulogne-Billancourt, Department of Pediatrics and Pediatric Emergency, Ambroise-Paré Hospital, Boulogne-Billancourt, France.

Growth impairment together with bone and joint involvement is common to most patients with mucopolysaccharidosis (MPS) disorders. The genetic basis for these metabolic disorders involves various enzyme deficiencies responsible for the catabolism of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs). The incomplete degradation and subsequent accumulation of GAGs result in progressive tissue damage throughout the body. Read More
