Aim: The prevalence of Down syndrome in infants with fetal ventriculomegaly is 5% to 10%; however, the converse, the prevalence of cerebral ventriculomegaly in live-born infants with Down syndrome, is not well established. Because cranial ultrasounds are performed on most very-low-birthweight (VLBW) infants (birthweight <1500g), our aim was to examine ultrasound abnormalities of VLBW infants to determine prevalence of ventriculomegaly and intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH) in VLBW infants with Down syndrome, and whether VLBW infants with Down syndrome are at higher risk for cranial ultrasound abnormalities, compared with the already elevated risk in other VLBW infants. Method: This study comprised retrospective analysis of data from Pediatrix BabySteps Clinical Data Warehouse. The study population consisted of 121 736 VLBW infants (61 869 males, 59 867 females), born between 1996 and 2013, of whom 441 had Down syndrome (233 males, 208 females; mean gestational age 30wks, standard deviation [SD] 2.8wks). Logistic regression was used to calculate odds of ventriculomegaly and IVH for Down syndrome. Results: Prevalence of ventriculomegaly in Down syndrome was 5.2% compared with 0.8% in other VLBW infants. Multivariate analysis indicated 5.8× odds (95% confidence interval [CI] 3.4-9.7) of ventriculomegaly in Down syndrome and 0.9× odds (95% CI 0.7-1.1) of IVH for Down syndrome. Interpretation: Very preterm infants with Down syndrome are at increased risk for ventriculomegaly (but not for IVH) compared with other infants born very preterm. © 2016 Mac Keith Press.

Objective: Assess extensor carpi ulnaris (ECU) tendon position in the ulnar groove, determine the frequency of tendon “dislocation” with the forearm prone, neutral, and supine, and determine if an association exists between ulnar groove morphology and tendon position in asymptomatic volunteers. Materials and methods: Axial proton density-weighted MR was performed through the distal radioulnar joint with the forearm prone, neutral, and supine in 38 asymptomatic wrists. The percentage of the tendon located beyond the ulnar-most border of the ulnar groove was recorded. Ulnar groove depth and length was measured and ECU tendon signal was assessed. Results: 15.8 % of tendons remained within the groove in all forearm positions. In 76.3 %, the tendon translated medially from prone to supine. The tendon “dislocated” in 0, 10.5, and 39.5 % with the forearm prone, neutral and supine, respectively. In 7.9 % prone, 5.3 % neutral, and 10.5 % supine exams, the tendon was 51–99 % beyond the ulnar border of the ulnar groove. Mean ulnar groove depth and length were 1.6 and 7.7 mm, respectively, with an overall trend towards greater degrees of tendon translation in shorter, shallower ulnar grooves. Conclusions: The ECU tendon shifts in a medial direction when the forearm is supine; however, tendon “dislocation” has not been previously documented in asymptomatic volunteers. The ECU tendon medially translated or frankly dislocated from the ulnar groove in the majority of our asymptomatic volunteers, particularly when the forearm is supine. Overall greater degrees of tendon translation were observed in shorter and shallower ulnar grooves. © 2016 ISS
