Balloon angioplasty for infant coarctation is associated with a high recurrence rate, making operative repair the gold standard for low-risk infants. Debate exists as to whether high-risk infants might be better served with primary angioplasty. We compared the outcome in high-risk versus low-risk infants over 20 years, in a center ...

Neonatal jaundice, especially breast feeding jaundice is the most common cause of neonatal re-admission within the first month of life. Good maternal support and closed follow-up of newborn infants can promote successful breast feeding without causing any complications. To determine the rate of significant weight loss and hypernatremia in infants ...

Teratoma is the leading neoplasm diagnosed in neonates and infants. Although over 99% of teratomas found in the fetus and newborn are histologically benign, those tumors may cause death if vital structures are involved or if the airway is compromised. We review the literature on antenatal intrapericardial teratomas and report ...

Although the classic extended end-to-end repair is the procedure of choice in most neonates and infants with coarctation of the aorta, there is a problem of distance despite extensive mobilization and impairment of growth of the arch because of scarring in some patients. Since December 1999, 15 neonates and infants ...
