Family-centered music therapy-Empowering premature infants and their primary caregivers through music: Results of a pilot study.

PLoS One 2021 14;16(5):e0250071. Epub 2021 May 14.

Department of Neonatology, University Children's Hospital, Heidelberg, Germany.

Background: In Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICUs) premature infants are exposed to various acoustic, environmental and emotional stressors which have a negative impact on their development and the mental health of their parents. Family-centred music therapy bears the potential to positively influence these stressors. The few existing studies indicate that interactive live-improvised music therapy interventions both reduce parental stress factors and support preterm infants' development. Read More

The Role of Humidity in the Management of Premature Neonates in a Rural Incubator.

Cureus 2021 Apr 10;13(4):e14411. Epub 2021 Apr 10.

Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Divya Hospital, Thirpur, IND.

Background While growing inside the uterus, the human fetus floats in amniotic fluid, and the mother maintains a stable temperature of 37 °C and a humidity of 100%. In most neonatal incubators, a stable temperature is maintained but not the humidity. We hypothesised that maintaining a humidity of 70% and a temperature of 32 °C in incubator rooms might improve the outcomes related to low birth weight (LBW) neonates. Read More

Endoscopic pyloromyotomy in minimally invasive esophagectomy: a novel approach.

Surg Endosc 2021 May 4. Epub 2021 May 4.

Division of Thoracic and Upper Gastrointestinal Surgery, McGill University Health Centre, Montreal, QC, Canada.

Background: Pyloric drainage procedures, namely pyloromyotomy or pyloroplasty, have long been considered an integral aspect of esophagectomy. However, the requirement of pyloric drainage in the era of minimally invasive esophagectomy (MIE) has been brought into question. This is in part because of the technical challenges of performing the pyloric drainage laparoscopically, leading many surgical teams to explore other options or to abandon this procedure entirely.

Case Report: Late-Presenting Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia With Tension Gastrothorax.

Front Pediatr 2021 14;9:618596. Epub 2021 Apr 14.

Train and Help Babies Organization, Dallas, TX, United States.

A congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) occurs when the abdominal contents protrude into the thoracic cavity through an opening in the diaphragm. The main pathology lies in the maldevelopment or defective fusion of the pleuroperitoneal membranes. Delayed diagnosis in later childhood as in the index case reported here can lead to life-threatening complications such as tension gastrothorax and gastric volvulus. Read More

Nasogastric Tube Feeding in Older Patients: A Review of Current Practice and Challenges Faced.

Curr Gerontol Geriatr Res 2021 21;2021:6650675. Epub 2021 Jan 21.

Cutrale Perioperative and Ageing Group, Imperial College London, London, UK.

Nasogastric tube feeding is an essential way of delivering enteral nutrition when the oral route is insufficient or unsafe. Malnutrition is recognised as a reversible factor for sarcopenia and frailty. It is therefore crucial that malnutrition is treated in older inpatients who have dysphagia and require enteral nutrition. Read More

Indian J Psychiatry 2020 Nov-Dec;62(6):732-733. Epub 2020 Dec 12.

Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, University of Malaya, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

A case of persistent aphagia in frontal lobe syndrome after traumatic brain injury (TBI) with successful use of olanzapine to improve the eating disorder is presented. A 20-year-old man suffered a severe TBI with right frontal intracerebral haemorrhage At four-month post-TBI, he had agitation, concurrent apathy with constant refusal for oral swallow despite gustatory sensory stimulation, hence the needs for nasogastric tube (NGT) feeding. He was diagnosed with frontal lobe syndrome and prescribed olanzapine 5mg daily that was optimised to 10mg due to worsened aggression. Read More

Early enteral feeding is beneficial for patients after pelvic exenteration surgery: A randomized controlled trial.

JPEN J Parenter Enteral Nutr 2021 Apr 21. Epub 2021 Apr 21.

Department of Nutrition and Dietetics, Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

Background: Postoperative feeding practices vary after pelvic exenteration surgery because of the lack of nutrition research in this specific surgical area. Postoperative ileus (POI) is common after pelvic exenteration surgery, and early enteral feeding is often avoided because of the lack of evidence and the belief that this may induce POI in this patient cohort. The aim of this study was to determine the effects of early enteral feeding after pelvic exenteration surgery on return of bowel movement and POI. Read More

Chin Med Sci J 2021 Mar;36(1):72-77

Department of Geriatrics,Air Force Medical Center, Beijing 100142, China.

A 90-year-old man was diagnosed with primary gastric diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (PGDLBL) by PET/CT examination, gastroscopy, biopsy and histopathological analysis at a regular physical check in April, 2016. The patient received R-CO chemotherapy (rituximab, cyclophosphamide, and vincristine) and radiotherapy subsequently, with enteral nutritional treatment through 3-cavity nasogastric tube due to development of pyloric obstruction. To satisfy patient's strong desire of eating by himself, we performed surgery of exploratory laparotomy and Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RGB) to relieve pylorus obstruction. Read More
