BACKGROUND: The cause of infantile hypertrophic pyloric stenosis (IHPS) is poorly understood. This descriptive study of IHPS focuses on the effect of maternal nativity, maternal Hispanic ethnicity, subtypes of maternal Asian ethnicity, and the timing of the infant's surgery, that is,...
Electronic data linkage is increasingly being used by researchers and health professionals in the birth defects field as a tool for enhancing both research and service/care. However, in many cases, a common pre‐existing ID number does not exist across different datasets, and common identifiers,...
BACKGROUND: Investigations of clusters of birth defects have been challenging endeavors that have had only modest success identifying causes or risk factors. Some of the challenges to individual cluster investigations have been small sample size and limited data collection. We describe a novel...

BACKGROUND: As part of the surveillance program to monitor the occurrence of birth defects in the metropolitan Atlanta area, we developed a record linkage software tool that provides latitude in the choice of linkage parameters, allows for efficient and accurate linkages, and enables objective...
BACKGROUND: Surveillance of stillbirths using fetal death reports (FDRs) has been challenging because of under‐reporting of fetal deaths and missing data on the FDRs. Using active case finding and chart abstraction within the infrastructure of established birth defect surveillance programs...
