Long-term tunneled central venous catheters (CVCs) are usually placed in children undergoing chemotherapy or hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) for underlying hemato–oncologic malignancies.
The authors of the present article considered the following topics noteworthy to be included in this review: pediatric cardiac care in the coronavirus disease 2019 era, the use of mechanical circulatory support in coronavirus disease 2019-related multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children, transfusion and coagulation management in children undergoing congenital heart surgery, and pulmonary vein stenosis.
To characterize the relationship between surgical volume and postoperative outcomes in congenital heart surgery, we used a national cohort to assess costs, readmissions and complications in children undergoing cardiac operations.
Simple Summary In children undergoing therapy for acute leukemia or after hematopoietic cell transplantation, the following iron metabolism parameters were analyzed in the context of iron overload: (1) parameters measuring functional and storage iron pools: non-transferrin-bound iron (NTBI) and labile plasma iron (LPI) levels, iron, transferrin, total iron-binding capacity, ferritin, ferritin heavy and light chains; (2) proteins regulating iron absorption and its release from tissue stores: hepcidin, soluble hemojuvelin, soluble ferroportin-1; (3) proteins regulating the erythropoietic activity of bone marrow: erythroferrone, erythropoietin, soluble transferrin receptor.
The aim of this study was to assess whether gender has an impact on the level of neuroendocrine response to surgical stress and intensity of postoperative pain in children undergoing inguinal hernia repair surgery, as well as satisfaction of their parents with preoperative and postoperative care.
We performed a systematic review of the literature to search for studies reporting the usefulness of novel urine, serum, and plasma biomarkers in the diagnosis and progression of AKI and their association with clinical outcomes in children undergoing pediatric cardiac surgery.
MATERIALS AND METHODS
All children undergoing emergency orthopedic surgery during lockdown (group 1) were prospectively included, then retrospectively compared to series operated on during the same period in the previous 3 years.
Our study further supports the role LMA has in reducing intraoperative times in addition to describing a novel method of reducing intraoperative time by operating on a transport stretcher for healthy children undergoing T&A.
Conclusions: Premedication with 2 μg kg−1 intranasal dexmedetomidine accompanied by cartoon video viewing can dramatically reduce emergence delirium in preschool children undergoing strabismus surgery, relieve preoperative anxiety and improve the parental satisfaction and the postoperative behavior changes during the first day after surgery.
We describe the technical procedure, intraoperative findings, and outcomes of 7 consecutive children undergoing 2-stage resective epilepsy surgery with invasive subdural grid monitoring between January 2017 and December 2019.
Caudal epidural anesthesia in pediatric patients was first described in 1933 as a replacement for general anesthesia in 83 children undergoing transurethral surgery, and since that time it has been shown to be useful in a variety of surgeries.
Methods Prospective, longitudinal study with 25 children undergoing adenotonsillectomy separated into 3 different groups: recurrent tonsillitis (RT), composed of 7 patients; recurrent hypertrophy tonsillitis (RTTH), with 8 patients; and the tonsillar hypertrophy (TH) group, with 10 patients.
