We present the case of a full term infant affected by diffuse persistent interstitial pulmonary emphysema (PIPE), who was treated with partial liquid ventilation (PLV) after the failure of conventional management. PIPE is a lethal chronic lung disease of unclear pathogenesis. Clinical history,...
Cancers in pregnancy are uncommon but do occur with an average frequency of 1 in 1,000 births. This gives rise to opposing emotional reactions in these women: they are happy they are pregnant, but usually devastated when they hear they have cancer. The major reasons for suspecting that pregnancy...
Doppler recordings of fetal venous blood flow seem to be superior to arterial velocimetry and CTG concerning the prediction of fetal outcome and optimal time of delivery in pregnancies with fetal growth retardation and AREDV. An improvement of arterial Doppler flow velocities has been described....
We counted nucleated red blood cells (NRBC) per 100 white blood cells (WBC) in the umbilical cord blood from 98 twins born to 49 women with uncomplicated twin pregnancies at ≥ 34 weeks of gestation to better characterize NRBC in twins. Twelve women with monochorionic (MC) placentas and 37 with...
Objective: The 70 kilo Dalton heat shock protein is upregulated when cells are under physiological stress. It prevents protein denaturation and incorrect polypeptide assembly, and inhibits apoptosis as well as the transcription of genes coding for pro-inflammatory cytokines. To evaluate if...
Positive end expiratory pressure is routinely used when ventilating preterm infants. Elevation of PEEP increases lung volume, as does surfactant treatment. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of various levels of PEEP within the range of 0.2 to 0.4 kPa on lung volume,...
Objective : To compare the incidence of twin births and their birth weight characteristics in mothers aged ≥ 40 years with those of mothers aged 35–39 years. Methods: We used a population-based cohort of Israeli twins delivered between 1993–98 to compare birth weight characteristics of 510...
Introduction: Recent studies in sheep have shown that repeated maternal injections of betamethasone are associated with adverse effects within the nervous system. Repeated fetal injections of betamethasone achieve serial improvements in preterm lung function in sheep and are a possible...
