The condition requires a comprehensive evaluation as both medical and psychosocial problems may (...) ://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12043359?tool=bestpractice.com However, the definition varies between different healthcare providers, and the criteria used to diagnose the condition must be specified. FTT can be a pejorative term. Under-nutrition is a descriptive term for poor growth and is preferred because it is more specific than FTT; it does not compound the possible failure parents may feel due to their infant's poor growth.

Prediction of uncuffed tracheal tube sizes in children and infants using age/weight-based formulae: A retrospective cross-sectional study. The age-based formula is commonly used to predict tracheal tube (TT) sizes although its inaccuracy has been reported to reach as high as 60%. We aim to determine a practical formula using age in months and weight in kilograms to predict uncuffed tracheal tube (TT) size in children and infants.A retrospective cross-sectional study was conducted on data

Developmental delay and failure to thrive in a 7-month-old baby boy with spontaneous transient Graves’ thyrotoxicosis: a case report Thyroid dysfunction can induce developmental delay and failure to thrive in infancy. Congenital hypothyroidism is one of the common causes of these symptoms in infancy. By contrast, hyperthyroidism is a rare cause of these symptoms in infancy.A 7-month-old Japanese baby boy was examined for developmental delay and failure to thrive. Blood tests were performed (...) , which showed low levels of thyroid-stimulating hormone (<0.01 μU/mL) and high levels of free thyroxine (2.14 pg/mL). He was referred to our hospital at 8 months of age. His height was 64 cm (-2.7 standard deviation) and his weight was 6085 g (-2.5 standard deviation). No goiter was detected on examination. His thyrotropin receptor antibody was slightly high (3.9 IU/L), whereas thyroid stimulating antibody, anti-thyroglobulin antibody, and thyroid peroxidase antibody were within normal range

admissions for major cancer surgery among elderly patients (ie, age ≥ 65 years) and a referent group age 55 to 64 years. From these observations, we identified geriatric events that included delirium, dehydration, falls and fractures, failure to thrive, and pressure ulcers. We then estimated the collective prevalence of these events according to age, comorbidity, and cancer site and further explored their relationship with other hospital-based outcomes.Within a weighted sample of 939,150 patients, we (...) Burden of Geriatric Events Among Older Adults Undergoing Major Cancer Surgery. Most malignancies are diagnosed in older adults who are potentially susceptible to aging-related health conditions; however, the manifestation of geriatric syndromes during surgical cancer treatment is not well quantified. Accordingly, we sought to assess the prevalence and ramifications of geriatric events during major surgery for cancer.Using Nationwide Inpatient Sample data from 2009 to 2011, we examined hospital

Effects of zinc supplementation on catch-up growth in children with failure to thrive Although globally the numbers of children diagnosed with failure to thrive (FTT) have decreased, FTT is still a serious pediatric problem. We aimed to investigate the effects of zinc supplementation for 6 months on growth parameters of infants and children with FTT.In this retrospective study, of the 114 participants aged between 4 months and 6 years, 89 were included in the zinc supplementation group and were (...) provided with nutrition counseling plus an oral zinc supplement for 6 months. The caregivers of the 25 participants in the control group received nutrition counseling alone. Medical data of these children, including sex, age, height, weight, serum zinc level, and serum insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF1) level were analyzed.Zinc supplementation for 6 months increased weight-for-age Z-score and serum zinc levels (5.5%) in the zinc supplementation group of underweight category children.
