  • Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia. The Post-Neonatal Period (Part II)

    Rocha, G.   Bianchi, R.   Azevedo, I.   Correia-Pinto, J.   Guimar?es, H.  

    Purpose: The aim of this study was to describe the long-term functional impact of congenital diaphragmatic hernia repair on the survivors of a cohort of newborns. Methods: We analysed the multidisciplinary follow-up medical charts of 26 congenital diaphragmatic hernia survivors, treated at the Hospital de Sao Joao neonatal intensive care unit from January 1997 to December 2006. Results: The median age at follow-up was 51 (14-141) months. One (4%) patient had died by the age of three months old. Thirteen (50%) patients presented with at least one sequelae, six (23%) presented with two or more. Gastrointestinal problems were the most prevalent, with 6 (23%) children below the fifth percentile for weight and 3 (12%) with gastro-oesophageal reflux. Respiratory morbidity was present in 4 (15%) patients. Four (15%) patients exhibited neurological problems. No case of sensorineural hearing loss was diagnosed. Other findings included musculoskeletal anomalies (12%), recurrence of hernia (8%) and patch rejection (4%). Conclusion: Congenital diaphragmatic hernia survivors present with ongoing morbidities and mortality during infancy and childhood. They constitute a group of patients who require long-term regular follow-up in a multidisciplinary setting to provide adequate support and improve their quality of life.

  • Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia – The Neonatal Period (Part I)

    Rocha, G.   Bianchi, R.   Severo, M.   Rodrigues, M.   Baptista, M.   Correia-Pinto, J.   Guimar?es, H.  

    Aim: The aim of the Study was to review Our experience in the management of newborns with congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH). Methods: A retrospective study including all infants with CDH at the Hospital de Sao Joao, a center that does not provide ECMO support, for the period from 1997 to 2006. Since 2003, a new treatment protocol has been used. Results: There were 61 newborns (30 male/31 female) with a birth weight of 2800 g (880-3770), and a gestational age of 38 weeks (28 - 41); 46 (75%) were inborn and 42 (69%) had a prenatal diagnosis of CDH. There were 2 (3%) chromosomal anomalies, 3 (5%) with other congenital anomalies and 1 (2%) with nonimmune hydrops fetalis. The diaphragmatic defect was left sided in 55 (90%) cases. Corrective surgery was performed in 43 (70%) patients. New therapies were used: HFOV 13% (n = 8): inhaled nitric oxide 13% (n = 8); and sildenafil 7% (n = 4). We found that systemic arterial hypotension (p = 0.001), the severity of pulmonary hypertension (p = 0.001), prenatal diagnosis (p = 0.006), birth weight (p = 0.022), female gender (p = 0.029), inborn birth (p = 0.030), arterial pH < 7.35 at admission (p = 0.030), right-sided defect (p = 0.033) and pneumothorax (p = 0.033) to be predictive of mortality. The overall survival rate was 43% (n = 26), and since 2003 this rate has improved to 61% for term neonates Without other congenital or chromosomal anomalies. Conclusions: Our Survival rate for infants with CDH has improved over the last ten years, and this improvement is associated with the use of new therapies such as HFOV, inhaled nitric oxide and sildenafil.

  • New constraints on varying α

    Rocha, G.   Trotta, R.   Martins, C.J.A.P.   Melchiorri, A.   Avelino, P.P.   Viana, P.T.P.  

    We present a summary of recent constraints on the value of the fine-structure constant at the epoch of decoupling from the recent observations made by the Wilkinson microwave anisotropy probe (WMAP) satellite. Within the set of models considered, a variation of the value of α at decoupling with respect to the present-day value is now bounded to be smaller than 2%(6%) at 95%confidence level. We point out that the existence of an early reionization epoch as suggested by the above measurements will, when more accurate cosmic microwave background polarization data are available, lead to considerably tighter constraints. We find that the tightest possible constraint on α is about 0.1%using CMB data alone – tighter constraints will require further (non-CMB) priors.
