Pediatric general and subspecialty care requires continuous effort to maintain knowledge and competencies in clinical practice. Equally important are efforts by investigators and educators to maintain knowledge and competencies in the conduct of research and training. The Association of Medical School Pediatric Department Chairs initiated a survey in ...

To the Editor The literature shows that the use of a predominately human milk diet (≥ 98%) in very low-birth-weight infants supports appropriate growth and development, decreases rates of necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC), decreases overall patient care costs, allows for earlier discharge, reduces patient risk of readmittance, and increases ...

To the Editor Understanding the effect of exposure to bovine-based formulas and fortifiers is an important area of research for optimizing outcomes and feeding protocols for very low-birth-weight infants. In their article studying the effect of supplementing with donor milk vs preterm formula in the first 10 days ...

To the Editor The benefits of feeding very low-birth-weight infants raw own mother’s milk as opposed to formula are well established, particularly in its capacity to reduce the incidence of serious infections and necrotizing entercolitis.1,2 What the critical amount of formula is that increases the ...

Sergio Verd, MD

To the Editor Corpeleijn et al1 demonstrate that the use of donor milk as a supplement to a median intake of 89% of mother’s own milk during the first 10 days of life was not associated with decreased occurrence of severe infection or mortality in very low-birth-weight ...

Together, state Medicaid programs and children’s hospitals disproportionately contribute to care for children whose health is most vulnerable. Children’s hospitals look to Medicaid to provide coverage for an age group that does not enjoy an entitlement as broad as Medicare for seniors. Medicaid relies on children’s hospitals to ...

Importance  Acute kidney injury (AKI) after pediatric cardiac surgery is associated with high short-term morbidity and mortality; however, the long-term kidney outcomes are unclear.

Objective  To assess long-term kidney outcomes after pediatric cardiac surgery and to determine if perioperative AKI is associated with worse long-term kidney ...

Importance  Medicaid payments tend to be less than the cost of care. Federal Disproportionate Share Hospital (DSH) payments help hospitals recover such uncompensated costs of Medicaid-insured and uninsured patients. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act reduces DSH payments in anticipation of fewer uninsured patients and therefore ...

To the Editor I hate to disagree with my learned colleague Dr Peter Hotez,1 but I believe some of the analogies he presents in his JAMA Pediatrics article “What Does Zika Virus Mean for the Children of the Americas?” are exaggerated and misleading.1

Comment & Response 
Peter J. Hotez, MD, PhD

In Reply It’s always good to hear from my friend, respected colleague, and former Yale University mentor Ben Katz. However, I disagree with some of his assessments. While it’s true that in adults there is no comparison between the disease severity of Zika and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)/AIDS, ...
