22q11.2 deletion syndrome (22q11.2DS) has a wide range of clinical features including endocrine abnormalities. We aimed to characterize growth patterns, hypoparathyroidism, and thyroid dysfunction of individuals with 22q11.2DS. Anthropometric and laboratory measurements were obtained from the charts of 48 individuals (males=28, 8.0±6.8 visits/participant) followed at a national 22q11.2DS clinic between 2009 and 2016. Age at diagnosis was 4.3±4.9 years and age at last evaluation 11.2±7.2 years. Median height-SDS was negative at all ages...

INTRODUCTION: When a young person grows up, they evolve from an independent child to an empowered adult. If an individual has a chronic condition, this additional burden may hamper adequate development and independence. Transition programmes for young persons with chronic disorders aim to provide the necessary skills for self-management and participation in care. However, strong evidence on the effects of these interventions is lacking. Therefore, as part of the STEPSTONES project (Swedish Transition Effects Project Supporting Teenagers with chrONic mEdical conditionS), we propose a trial to assess the effectiveness of a structured, person-centred transition programme to empower adolescents with congenital heart disease in the transition to adulthood...

Postural tachycardia syndrome (POTS) represents a common form of orthostatic intolerance that disproportionately affects young women from puberty through adulthood. Patients with POTS have day-to-day orthostatic symptoms with the hallmark feature of an excessive, sustained, and symptomatic rise in heart rate during orthostatic testing. Although considerable overlap exists, three subtypes of POTS have been described: neuropathic, hyperadrenergic, and hypovolemic forms. The wide spectrum of symptoms and comorbidities can make treatment particularly challenging...

Since the beginning of United Network of Organ Sharing data collection in 1987, a total of 8,333 pediatric patients have received a heart transplant in the United States. Because these patients now have longer graft success with improved care and immunosuppression, many of them are entering adolescence and young adulthood. Primary care pediatric nurse practitioners need to be alert to the prevalence of noncompliance with treatment in heart transplant patients, which continues to be highest in adolescence. Low compliance in adolescence increases morbidity, contributes to decreasing quality of life, and is the leading reason for graft failure and mortality in this age group...

Investigating heterogeneity in antisocial behavior early in life is essential for understanding the etiology, development, prognosis, and treatment of these problems. Data from the longitudinal National Institute of Child Health and Development (NICHD) study of Early Child Care were used to identify homogeneous groups of young antisocial children differentiated on externalizing problems, internalizing problems, and callous-unemotional (CU) traits using latent profile analysis (LPA). We examined how identified subgroups were differentiated on adolescent social, biological, cognitive, and environmental outcomes, controlling for dispositional and contextual antecedents during the first 2 years of life...

Advances in prenatal diagnosis, perioperative management, and postoperative care have dramatically increased the population of survivors of neonatal and infant heart surgery. The high survival rate of these patients into adulthood has exposed the alarming prevalence of long-term neuropsychological and psychiatric morbidities. Dextro-transposition of the great arteries (d-TGA) is one of the most extensively studied cyanotic congenital heart defect (CHD) with regard to neurodevelopmental outcomes. Landmark studies have described a common neurodevelopmental and behavioral phenotype associated with d-TGA...

BACKGROUND: Resistin is a hormone, mainly produced in macrophages and monocytes, believed to play an important role in the inflammatory response. It has been linked to several chronic diseases such as heart failure, inflammatory bowel disease, and insulin resistance. Pediatric reference levels are needed for the risk stratification and interpretation of individual serum resistin concentrations. METHODS: A total of 1191 healthy, non-obese Danish schoolchildren (727 girls) aged 6-18years (median 11...

Reactivity patterns to acute stress are important indicators of physical and mental health. However, the relationships between emotion socialization and stress responses are not well understood. This study aimed to examine whether parental responses to negative emotions predicted physiological and psychological responses to acute stress in late adolescence and emerging adulthood, and whether these relationships varied by gender and ethnicity. Participants were 973 individuals (mean age=19.20years; 50% male; 63% African American, 34% European American) who reported on parental emotion socialization...

In adults with structurally normal hearts, the early repolarization pattern (ERP) on electrocardiogram (ECG) may be associated with an increased risk of sudden cardiac death. The prevalence and significance of the ERP in children is unknown. This study examines the prevalence of the ERP, the population in which it is found, and whether there exists any correlation with increased LV mass or family history of significant cardiac events. This was a secondary review of data obtained from healthy adolescents undergoing a limited ECG and transthoracic echocardiogram (TTE) as part of a cardiac screening study...

BACKGROUND: According to Organ Procurement Transplant Network policy, hearts from donors age <18 years are offered to pediatric recipients before being offered to adults of the same health status. We aimed to analyze differences in the use of adolescent donor hearts between adult and pediatric candidates and also to analyze the outcomes of pediatric candidates in which an adolescent donor heart was refused and later used in an adult recipient. METHODS: All adolescent donors (age 12-17 years) for 2000 to 2015 were identified using the standard United Network of Organ Sharing dataset and matched against the Potential Transplant Recipient dataset...

BACKGROUND: Autonomic dysfunction is common in children with Rett syndrome. They usually manifest with agitation, persistent screaming, constipation, gastroesophageal reflux, aerophagia, hyperventilation, and breath-holding episodes. Cardiovascular autonomic dysfunction may result in fatal a arrhythmia. Many of these events are mistaken for seizures and treated with antiepileptics. METHODS: The present study was conducted in a tertiary care teaching hospital in north India for more than a six month period...

BACKGROUND: In middle-aged and elderly populations, circulating natriuretic peptide concentrations are negatively associated with several components of the metabolic syndrome. Whether these negative associations are also present in healthy adolescents and young adults from the general population are unknown. METHODS: In a cross-sectional setting, we measured plasma concentrations of mid-regional proatrial natriuretic peptide (MR-proANP) in 343 adolescents (age 14-16 years) and 616 young adults (age 20-28 years) from the Danish site of the European Youth Heart Study, which is a population-based study of cardiovascular disease risk factors in children, adolescents and young adults...
