Dr. Parvesh Mohan Garg and Peers’ Pioneering Work: Improving Outcomes for Preterm Infants

Nurturing Hope: The Journey of Preterm Infants in the NICU

When it comes to establishing the credibility and legitimacy of any foundation or organization, the individuals behind the mission play a pivotal role. At the Sriniver Foundation, we take immense pride in our founder, Dr. Parvesh Mohan Garg, and his dedicated team of peers. Together, they have been at the forefront of groundbreaking research that directly impacts the lives of less fortunate children. One such study, published in the National Library of Medicine, underscores their collective commitment to making a difference.

The study in question, titled “Postoperative Growth and Brain Injury Outcomes in Spontaneous Intestinal Perforation vs Surgical Necrotizing Enterocolitis in Preterm Infants,” delves into a critical aspect of neonatal care. It aims to compare clinical outcomes in preterm infants who have undergone surgical necrotizing enterocolitis (sNEC) with those who have experienced spontaneous intestinal perforation (SIP).

Here are some key takeaways from this significant research conducted by Dr. Garg and his esteemed colleagues:

1. Collaborative Endeavor: This study was a result of the collective efforts of Parvesh Mohan Garg, Katheryn Lett, Md Abu Yusuf Ansari, Isabella Pittman, Robin Riddick, Neha Varshney, Michael Morris, David Sawaya, Charlotte Taylor, Kartik Reddy, Peter Porcelli, and William Hillegass, who brought their expertise and passion to the table.

2. Comparative Analysis: The research involved a meticulous retrospective comparison of clinical data from preterm infants with sNEC and SIP admitted between January 2013 and December 2018.

3. Crucial Findings: The study scrutinized a range of clinical outcomes, including postoperative complications and brain injuries detected through magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

4. Valuable Insights: The research revealed intriguing insights, such as infants with SIP having a lower median gestational age, an earlier onset of the disease, and different maternal chorioamnionitis rates compared to those with sNEC.

5. Implications for Care: Importantly, the study indicates that preterm infants with SIP and sNEC did not exhibit significant differences in postoperative morbidity and brain MRI abnormalities at term equivalent age. However, there were distinctions in discharge weight z scores.

Dr. Parvesh Mohan Garg and his dedicated team’s involvement in this research not only reflects their dedication to advancing medical knowledge but also their commitment to improving the lives of preterm infants. Such pioneering work adds tremendous value to the Sriniver Foundation’s mission of empowering children through education, healthcare, and community development.
