Towards no more NEC

Lezing

This webinar aims to give an overview of where we are with NEC today, and where to go in the near future. What do we know about NEC pathophysiology, which reliable predictive factors are or will be available, how can we best prevent or treat NEC and what are the long term consequences for the child and its parents.

  • Doelgroep

    Pediatric surgeons, neonatologists, researchers and AIOS from the aforementioned fields and other healthcare professionals)

  • Programma

    Necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) can be a devastating disease, mainly occurring in preterm born infants. Infants suffering from NEC have a high mortality risk. Survivors potentially experience detrimental long term effects, both regarding gastrointestinal function and neurodevelopmental outcome. This has inspired many physicians and researchers to investigate the pathophysiology of NEC and to find effective preventive and treatment interventions.  And even though we now know that NEC is a multifactorial disease, involving an immature intestinal barrier combined with a dysbiosis of bowel microbes, we are still unable to predict which child will develop NEC and how to fully prevent this. Just as we still are unsure about when to proceed to surgery, and what to do exactly when we do operate.
