    Asian J Endosc Surg 2019Okata Y, Bitoh Y, … Tomioka Y
  • This is the first case report describing a laparoscopic fundoplication in a child with an intrathecal Baclofen pump which was inserted because of severe spasticity secondary to cerebral palsy. The child had symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux with recurrent episodes of aspiration pneumonia. These were managed with a gastrostomy and conservative therapy with no success.

  • Routine monitoring of gastric residual for prevention of necrotising enterocolitis in preterm infants. [Review]
    Cochrane Database Syst Rev 2019; 7:CD012937Abiramalatha T, Thanigainathan S, Ninan B
  • CONCLUSIONS: Review authors found insufficient evidence as to whether routine monitoring of gastric residual reduces the incidence of necrotising enterocolitis because trial results are imprecise. Low-quality evidence suggests that routine monitoring of gastric residual increases the risk of feed interruption episodes, increases the time taken to reach full enteral feeds and to regain birth weight, and increases the number of total parenteral nutrition (TPN) days.Available data are insufficient to comment on other major outcomes such as incidence of invasive infection, parenteral nutrition-associated liver disease, mortality before discharge, extrauterine growth restriction at discharge, number of CVL days, and duration of hospital stay. Further randomised controlled trials are warranted to provide more precise estimates of the effects of routine monitoring of gastric residual on important outcomes, especially necrotising enterocolitis, in preterm infants.
