11:30 Closing Remarks
1. Anthropometric Measures and Brain Weight in
Relation to Brain Pathology in Autopsied Very Low
Birth Weight Infants
Walliam N.Monte, Nigel S . Paneth, and Raoul D . Rudklh',
New York, N Y
We examined anthropometric measures at birth and death in
83 very low birth weight (VLBW) infants (mean birth weight
899 gm, mean gestational age 27.2 wk) derived from a prospective population-based study of neonatal brain hemorrhage in infants under 2,000 gm. At birth, birth weight
(BW), crown-heel length (CHL), and head circumference
(HC) were obtained on all subjects, and at death, these measurements plus fresh brain weight, biparietal diameter, occipitofrontal diameter, frontofontanel diameter, crown-rump
length, knee-ankle length, elbow-wrist length, and foot
length were obtained on 54 to 75 subjects. These measures
were assessed for their relationship to the presence of the
following neuropathological entities: germinal matrix hemorrhage (GMH), intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH), choroid
plexus hemorrhage (CPH), cerebellar hemorrhage (CH), and
white matter necrosis (WMN). Birth anthropometric measurements were not statistically associated with any specific
brain lesion. Brain weight was analyzed controlling for body
weight at death, because the two measures were closely correlated (32). We noted that: (1) brain weight, when controlled for body weight, was not related to the presence of
any specific neuropathological entity; (2) HC at death correlated well with brain weight (.78), but in 58 infants who
died in the first 5 days, change in H C was not associated with
any specific neuropathological entity; (3) infants with WMN
died at significantly ( p < .001) more advanced ages (mean
25.5 days) than did infants without this lesion (mean 2.5
days). These findings fail to confirm the hypotheses of
DeCourten and Rabinowicz (Dev Med Child Neurol 1981;
23:287) and Coulter et al (Pediatr Res 1985;19:1322) that
IVH is related to changes in brain weight postnatally. CPH
was not seen to occur preferentially in larger babies, but
WMN was increasingly likely the longer the baby survived.
2. Effects of Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation on
Cerebral Blood Flow in the Newborn Infant
David H . Bqdz, Abraham C. Kuruvilla, and
Allen M . Kapkan, Phoenix, A 2
Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) may adversely influence cerebral blood flow (CBF) because of ligadon of the right carotid artery and internal jugular vein and
institution of nonpulsatile partial cardiopulmonary bypass.
Four newborn infants with a mean birth weight of 3,275 2
880 gm, 1-minute Apgar score of 5.1 2 2.7, and 5-minute
Apgar score of 7.1 -+ 1.4 had serial bedside CBF measurements before, during, and after ECMO, using intravenous
xenon 133 and 2 detectors placed in parallel fashion over
each hemisphere. CBF15 was derived as the mean CBF of
the fast- and slow-clearing compartments. All infants were
conventionally ventilated and hemodynamically stable during
the studies. Cranial ultrasounds before and after ECMO
were normal in all children. All survived neurologically intact. Six-month follow-up revealed normal growth and development.
