    Background: Preclinical data and adult studies have showed an endogenous regeneration process following brain damage that involves mobilization of progenitor cells. This process is not well described in preterm neonates. The present study aims to investigate the mobilization of Circulating...

    Background: The burden of global injury-related deaths predominantly affects developing countries, which have little infrastructure to evaluate these disparities. We describe injury-related mortality patterns in Kampala, Uganda and compare them with data from the United States and San Francisco...

    Morbidity attributable to hypoxic-ischaemic injury (HIE) in the perinatal period remains problematic, and timely and accurate assessment of the degree of injury is required for clinical management and prognosis. Conventional MR sequences typically appear normal in the first 48 h post HIE. While...

    Neonatal encephalopathy is a neurological emergency with heterogeneous etiologies and several management challenges. Neonatal encephalopathy of hypoxic-ischemic origin is associated with high rate of neonatal morbidity and mortality, and the long-term neurodevelopmental outcome of survivors with...

    Cardiac surgery for congenital heart disease is performed increasingly earlier in infancy, including in the neonatal period. With increased survival of infants, there is growing concern about the long-term neurological sequelae of hypoxic-ischemic injury due to congenital heart disease itself...

    OBJECTIVES: To compare the age of onset of the pattern orientation reversal visual evoked potential (OR-VEP) in a group of very low birthweight (VLBW) premature infants with term infants matched for postconceptual age at testing. The OR-VEP measure is used as an indicator of visual cortical...

    Objective To determine the frequency and pattern of cerebellar haemorrhage (CBH) on routine cranial ultrasound (cUS) imaging in infants of =32 weeks gestation, and to investigate how extremely preterm infants with CBH differ from those with severe intraventricular haemorrhage (IVH). Methods 672...
