From: DMBT1 expression and neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio during necrotizing enterocolitis are influenced by impaired perfusion due to cardiac anomalies

Fig. 2

DMBT1 expression in infants with necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) depending on cardiac status. Representative illustration of high DMBT1-expression levels in NEC infants with intraoperative bacteria detection with normal cardiac status (a) and with CHD/PDA (b and c, respectively). df Infants with PDA/CHD (e and f, respectively) show significantly more DMBT1-positive macrophages (arrows) in comparison to preterm infants with normal cardiac status (d). Insert in e: higher magnification of DMBT1-positive macrophages. g/h DMBT1-expression of serosa (arrows) was higher in NEC infants with fulminant course (h) in comparison to infants with non-fulminant course (g). i The invasion of leukocytes into the intestinal wall (arrows) in an infant with CHD and NEC. k DMBT1 expression in endothelial cells in some neutrophils
