Abstract
Results of management of the neonatal surgical emergencies were
analyzed and compared between 460 infants treated during the 1979-85 period (prechildrens
hospital) and 471 infants treated during the 1986-92 period (post-childrens
hospital). No statistical difference was noted in patients population, and average mortality
rate in the pediatric surgical department which has already been functioning as
an independent unit since 1978. Other surgical departments have experienced 2-3 fold
increases in number of patients. Patient's age at admissionl delay in transfer} was not
significantly improved. However, significant improvement in survival was noted in
patients who required respiratory support such as gastroschisis, and esophageal atresia
with tracheo-esophageal atresia. Changes in the general management plan are discussed.
