Pediatric Neurologic Examination Videos & Descriptions: Newborn > Normal Reflexes - Deep Tendon Reflexes Testing deep tendon reflexes is an important part of the newborn neurological exam. They can be technically difficult to do. The first thing is to use a reflex hammer, not a finger or a stethoscope. Ideally, the baby is in a quiet alert state with the head in the midline. Reposition the leg and try several times if you have trouble getting a knee jerk. Absence of deep tendon reflexes is a much more important finding than hyperreflexia in the newborn.

Chapter 33-Schwartz's Surgery for Pancreatic Surgery Welcome to LearningRadiology by Prof. (Univ. Cairo) Ahmed T Hadidi Onlay Island Flap The Onlay Island Flap is ideal for patients with proximal hypospadias without deep Chordee. According to the author experience, most patients with proximal hypospadias have deep chordee that necessitates excision. However, recently, many surgeons prefer to perform dorsal placation if the chordee is less than 30o after skin degloving and preserve the urethral plate. Operative steps The tip of the neo-meatus is identified. A subcoronal incision is made around the glans. The skin is degloved from distal to proximal close to the Buck's fascia preserving the arteries that constitute the pedicle to the preputial flap. A 1-cm wide onlay flap is prepared from the inner prepuce. The mobilized glans wings are rotated medially around the neo-urethra. Complications Fistula, wound disruption, rotation, recurrent curvature occurs in 10 - 20 % of patients.

With only 500 cases of Wilms diagnosed annually, a single institution or several combined institutions could not complete an investigation in a relatively short period of time as they would not have enough patients to make significant comparisons. Groups of investigators and institutions interested in improving treatment for Wilms tumor agreed to combine their efforts and contribute data to the newly formed NWTS. In addition to analyzing the results of the initial aims, NWTS researchers identified a variety of elements that at diagnosis would help physicians gauge each patients risk for untoward outcomes. From the beginning the NWTS overriding principle has been “Cure is not enough.” [Back to Top] NWTS-1 Aims Results Radiation therapy will not be given to patient with the low risk Group I diagnosis.
