Abstract

Hypoplastic left heart sequence (HLHS) encompasses obstructive lesions of the left side of the heart accompanied by varying degrees of underdevelopment of the mitral valve, either atresia or stenosis, left ventricle, aortic valve, and ascending aorta. HLHS has an incidence of 0.016-0.036% live births and can occur as an isolated defect or several different chromosome abnormalities. In particular, about 20% of patients with monosomy X, have HLHS, suggesting a relationship between this form of aneuploidy and this congenital heart defect (CHD). Somatic mutations restricted to the cardiac affected structure have been considered a mechanism of CHD. The aim of this study was to evaluate if monosomy X restricted to the left ventricle causes isolated HLHS. Formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded cardiac tissue obtained from 19 patients with HLHS (10 males and 9 females) without extra cardiac anomalies and with a normal constitutional karyotype, were investigated by FISH analysis, using X/Y/18 centromeric probes. The results of this analysis were compared with those obtained by examining the heart specimens of 15 chromosomally normal pediatric patients affected by either restrictive or dilated cardiomyopathy, which were used as negative contr...Continue Reading

Birth Defects

Birth defects encompass structural and functional alterations that occur during embryonic or fetal development and are present since birth. The cause may be genetic, environmental or unknown and can result in physical and/or mental impairment. Here is the latest research on birth defects.

Cardiomyopathy

Cardiomyopathy is a disease of the heart muscle, that can lead to muscular or electrical dysfunction of the heart. It is often an irreversible disease that is associated with a poor prognosis. There are different causes and classifications of cardiomyopathies. Here are the latest discoveries pertaining to this disease.

Blood And Marrow Transplantation

The use of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation or blood and marrow transplantation (bmt) is on the increase worldwide. BMT is used to replace damaged or destroyed bone marrow with healthy bone marrow stem cells. Here is the latest research on bone and marrow transplantation.
