Transitional fetal hemodynamics and gas exchange in premature postpartum adaptation: immediate vs. delayed cord clamping.

Matern Health Neonatol Perinatol 2019 12;5. Epub 2019 Apr 12.

5Department of Mechanical Engineering, Koç Univeresity, Istanbul, Turkey.

Background: Recent studies suggest that delayed cord clamping (DCC) is advantageous for achieving hemodynamic stability and improving oxygenation compared to the immediate cord clamping (ICC) during fetal-to-neonatal transition yet there is no quantitative information on hemodynamics and respiration, particularly for pre-term babies and fetal disease states. Therefore, the objective of this study is to investigate the effects of ICC and DCC on hemodynamics and respiration of the newborn preterm infants in the presence of common vascular pathologies.

Methods: A computational lumped parameter model (LPM) of the placental and respiratory system of a fetus is developed to predict blood pressure, flow rates and oxygen saturation. Read More

Prostaglandin Infusion in Neonate With Severe Coarctation of the Aorta With Closed Ductus Arteriosus-A Case Report and Review of the Literature.

World J Pediatr Congenit Heart Surg 2019 Apr 22:2150135118799635. Epub 2019 Apr 22.

1 Division of Cardiology, Carman and Ann Adams Department of Pediatrics, Children's Hospital of Michigan, Wayne State University School of Medicine, Detroit, MI, USA.

We report the case of a premature newborn diagnosed with coarctation of the aorta after spontaneous closure of ductus arteriosus who was successfully managed with prostaglandin E infusion until surgical repair could be performed. This case, together with a review of the literature, suggests an important role for prostaglandin in the management of coarctation even in the absence of a patent ductus arteriosus. The putative mechanism for the utility of prostaglandin infusion is that it may relieve the obstruction in neonates with severe coarctation by not only opening of the ductus but, in select cases, relaxing the ductal tissue encircling the aortic isthmus region.

Practice for Preterm Patent Ductus Arteriosus; Focusing on the Hemodynamic Significance and the Impact on the Neonatal Outcomes.

Authors:
Jin A Lee

Korean J Pediatr 2019 Apr 8. Epub 2019 Apr 8.

Division of Neonatology, Department of Pediatrics, Seoul National University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea.

Hemodynamically significant preterm patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) has been known to affect mortality, morbidities such as necrotizing enterocolitis, intra-ventricular hemorrhage, bronchopulmonary dysplasia, and adverse long-term neurodevelopmental outcomes in preterm infants, especially in very low birth weight infants. However, recent researches indicate that there is no consensus about the causal relationship between the PDA and neonatal outcomes, the benefit or lack of treatment, the factors guiding the need to treat, and about the optimal treatment strategies. Such uncertainty made the practice about preterm PDA vary between units, regions, and nations widely. Read More

Differences in Cost of Care by Palliation Strategy for Infants With Ductal-Dependent Pulmonary Blood Flow.

Circ Cardiovasc Interv 2019 Apr;12(4):e007232

The Cardiac Center at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine (M.L.O., D.D., H.M.G., C.E.M., A.C.G.).

Background: In infants with ductal-dependent pulmonary blood flow, initial palliation with patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) stent or modified Blalock-Taussig (BT) shunt have comparable mortality but discrepant length of stay, procedural complication rates and reintervention burdens, which may influence cost. The relative economic impact of these palliation strategies is unknown.

Methods And Results: Retrospective study of infants with ductal-dependent pulmonary blood flow palliated with PDA stent (n=104) or BT shunt (n=251) from 2008 to 2015 at 4 centers of the Congenital Catheterization Research Collaborative. Read More

Microdeletion in Xq28 with a polymorphic inversion in a patient with FLNA-associated progressive lung disease.

Respir Investig 2019 Apr 12. Epub 2019 Apr 12.

Department of Pediatrics, Tokyo Women's Medical University, Tokyo, Japan. Electronic address:

Lung phenotype was reported as a novel phenotype in patients with mutations in the filamin A gene (FLNA) in 2011. FLNA mutations can result in pulmonary hyperinflation during the neonatal period or early infancy with progressive respiratory failure, culminating in a diagnosis of FLNA-associated progressive lung disease, particularly if the patient has periventricular nodular heterotopia and cardiac complications, such as patent ductus arteriosus, atrial septal defect, and pulmonary hypertension. We report the first Japanese case of FLNA-associated progressive lung disease caused by a microdeletion in Xq28 encompassing the FLNA gene with a polymorphic inversion. Read More

Radboud Institute for Health Sciences, Amalia Children's Hospital, Division of Neonatology, Department of Pediatrics, Radboud university medical center, Geert Grooteplein zuid 10, Postal code 804, 6525 GA, Nijmegen, The Netherlands.

The ductus arteriosus (DA) is probably the most intriguing vessel in postnatal hemodynamic transition. DA patency in utero is an active state, in which prostaglandin E (PGE) and nitric monoxide (NO), play an important role. Since the DA gets programmed for postnatal closure as gestation advances, in preterm infants the DA frequently remains patent (PDA). Read More

Nutr Hosp 2019 Apr;36(2):261-266

Hospital Universitario Vall d'Hebron.

Introduction: Background and objective: hemodynamically significant patent ductus arteriosus (HS-PDA) is associated with an increased risk of necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) and worse enteral tolerance in preterm newborns (PN). An association has been demonstrated between brain natriuretic propeptide (proBNP) and HS-PDA. Our objective was to analyze the relationship between proBNP levels and enteral tolerance, NEC risk and weight gain in PN. Read More

NTproBNP is a useful early biomarker of bronchopulmonary dysplasia in very low birth weight infants.

Eur J Pediatr 2019 May 28;178(5):755-761. Epub 2019 Feb 28.

Department of Neonatology, Puerta del Mar University Hospital, Avenida Ana de Viya 21, 11009, Cádiz, Spain.

Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) is a severe complication of prematurity that impacts survival and neurodevelopment. Currently, no early marker exists which could help clinicians identify which preterm infants will develop BPD. Given the evidence that NTproBNP is elevated in children with BPD, we hypothesized that it could be used as an early marker of BPD development. Read More
