Preterm birth and the role of neuroprotection

Preterm birth remains a common complication of pregnancy and causes substantial neonatal morbidity and mortality. As improvements in the care of preterm neonates have outpaced efforts to prevent preterm birth, the numbers of survivors with neurologic sequelae that affect quality of life have increased. The main strategies to reduce the impact of neurologic complications of prematurity include prevention of preterm birth and protection of the developing fetal brain through antenatal administration of drugs. These strategies rely on a basic understanding of the intertwined pathophysiology of spontaneous preterm labor and perinatal brain injury, which will be reviewed here. The review will outline current methods for the prevention of prematurity and neuroprotection. The use of magnesium sulfate as a neuroprotective compound will be discussed, including concerns over its association with increased pediatric mortality and abnormalities in bone density.

Why is Hirschsprung's disease associated with a contracted aganglionic segment rather than relaxed dilated?

My understanding of Hirschsprung's disease is as follows. It occurs in the aganglionic region of the sigmoid colon. It causes an increase in acetylcholinesterase activity in the parasympathetic nerves in that region. The parasympathetic nerves are stimulatory to the region, which means they causes contraction. Hirschsprung's disease causes increased spasticity, i.e. continual contraction of the region. The acetylcholinesterase inactivates acetylcholine preventing any further transmission. Firstly, is all that correct? Presuming it is, if acetylcholinesterase is high in the parasympathetic nerves, which causes a reduction in active acetylcholine, therefore reducing nerve transmission from the stimulatorary parasympathetic nerves, why is the sigmoid colon is not constantly relaxed and dilated, as opposed to constantly contracted? Can anyone help make this a bit clearer please? Thank you!

How does a patent Foramen Ovale increase the risk of stroke?

I heard yesterday that a patent Foramen Ovale (PFO) increases the risk of stroke - why would it? Is it that the turbulence from the PFO or possible damage on the endocardium causes small emboli to come off from here or is it that clots pass through the PFO. Also, I hadn't heard this before so is it actually true and / or a risk factor. Any help would be great.

Are steroids useful in bronchopulmonary dysplasia?

I'm aware steroids are given antenatally where preterm birth is expected to encourage development of the lungs. However, there seems to be some debate about whether postnatal dexamethasone is effective in treating bronchopulmonary dysplasia in premature infants. Is there any evidence that it works, and is it prescibed routinely?
