KOL-Index: 9413 . Skeletal muscle contractility and myosin function decline following ovariectomy in mature female mice. In the present study we tested the hypothesis that estradiol replacement can reverse those declines. Four-month-old female C57BL/6 mice (n = 69) were ovariectomized (OVX) or sham operated. Some mice were treated immediately with placebo or 17beta-estradiol (OVX + E(2)) while other mice ...

KOL-Index: 8081 . The purpose of this study was to determine the extent to which hindlimb muscles of mdx mice adapt to a voluntary endurance type of exercise. mdx and C57BL mice engaged in 8 weeks of wheel running or maintained normal cage activities. Beneficial adaptations that occurred in mdx mice included changes in muscle mass, fiber size, and fiber types based on myosin heavy chain (MHC) isoform ...

KOL-Index: 8029 . BACKGROUND: Restorative proctocolectomy with IPAA improves quality of life in patients with medically refractory ulcerative colitis. Although bowel obstruction is common, pouch volvulus is rare and described only in case reports. Diagnosis can be challenging, resulting in delayed care and heightened morbidity. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to delineate the symptoms and ...

KOL-Index: 5518 . BACKGROUND: The management of intestinal rotational abnormalities (IRA) in heterotaxy syndrome (HS) remains inconsistent. Because of the high incidence of malrotation in HS, screening of asymptomatic patients is standard of care in some institutions. The Ladd procedure is the treatment for malrotation, and has been reported to have high complication rates in HS patients. METHODS: We ...

KOL-Index: 4870 . PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to identify factors associated with attaining fecal continence in children with anorectal malformations (ARM). METHODS: We performed a multi-institutional cohort study of children born with ARM in 2007-2011 who had spinal and sacral imaging. Questions from the Baylor Social Continence Scale were used to assess fecal continence at the age of ≥4 years. ...

KOL-Index: 4752 . BACKGROUND: Anastomotic stricture is the most common postoperative complication in infants undergoing repair of esophageal atresia with or without tracheoesophageal fistula (EA/TEF). Stricture indices (SIs) are used to predict infants at risk for stricture requiring dilation. We sought to determine the most accurate SI and optimal timing for predicting anastomotic dilation. MATERIALS AND ...

KOL-Index: 4506 . BACKGROUND: This study evaluates screening practices and the incidence of associated anomalies in infants with anorectal malformations (ARM). METHODS: We performed a multi-institutional retrospective cohort study of children born between 2007 and 2011 who underwent surgery for ARM at 10 children's hospitals. ARM type was classified based on the location of the distal rectum, and all ...

KOL-Index: 4049 . BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Elective preterm delivery (EPD) of a fetus with gastroschisis may prevent demise and ameliorate intestinal injury. While the literature on optimal timing of delivery varies, we hypothesize that a potential benefit may be found with EPD. METHODS: A meta-analysis of publications describing timing of delivery in gastroschisis from 1/1990 to 8/2016 was performed, including ...

KOL-Index: 3926 . INTRODUCTION: Isomerism, or heterotaxy syndrome, affects many organ systems anatomically and functionally. Intestinal malrotation is common in patients with isomerism. Despite a low reported risk of volvulus, some physicians perform routine screening and prophylactic Ladd procedures on asymptomatic patients with isomerism who are found to have intestinal malrotation. The primary aim of ...

KOL-Index: 3870 . PURPOSE: Comparative outcomes of enhanced percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) and laparoscopic gastrostomy (LG) have not been elucidated in infants. We describe the outcomes and procedural episodic expenditures of PEG versus LG in this high-risk population. METHODS: One hundred eighty-three gastrostomies in children under 1year were reviewed from our institution spanning ...

KOL-Index: 3712 . INTRODUCTION: Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is increasingly prevalent in injured children admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU). Few data exist to support VTE pharmacologic prophylaxis or ultrasound (US) surveillance in children with high bleeding risk. After implementation of screening US guidelines, we sought to describe our experience, hypothesizing that screening US of children at ...

KOL-Index: 3628 . PURPOSE: To report outcomes of sutured and sutureless closure for gastroschisis across a large multi-institutional cohort. METHODS: A retrospective study of infants with uncomplicated gastroschisis at 11 children's from 2014 to 2016 was performed. Outcomes of sutured and sutureless abdominal wall closure were compared. RESULTS: Among 315 neonates with uncomplicated gastroschisis, sutured ...

KOL-Index: 1023 . ObjectiveTo provide generalizable estimates for expected outcomes of simple gastroschisis (SG) and complex gastroschisis (CG) patients from a large multi-institutional cohort for use during counseling.Study designA retrospective study of 394 neonates with gastroschisis at 11 children’s hospitals from January 2013 to March 2017 was performed. Analysis by Fisher’s exact tests and Wilcoxon ...

KOL-Index: 1019 . BACKGROUND: Perioperative hypothermia decreases nutrient and oxygen delivery to tissues and, in adult studies, increases the risk of infectious complications (ICs). Gastroschisis (GS) places newborns at risk for hypothermia by nature of exposed viscera and excessive heat loss. Although hypothermia is a known cause of mortality in GS, the rate of ICs in this at-risk cohort has not yet been ...
