Altered morphologic properties of large arteries in children with chronic renal failure and after renal transplantation.
Increased intima-media thickness of the carotid arteries (cIMT) has been found in young adults with childhood-onset chronic kidney disease (CKD). The disease stage at which these patients firstExpand

Distribution of 24-h ambulatory blood pressure in children: normalized reference values and role of body dimensions
Background Twenty-four-hour ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) is an essential tool in the diagnosis and therapeutic monitoring of arterial hypertension in children. The statistical use ofExpand

Prevalence of mutations in renal developmental genes in children with renal hypodysplasia: results of the ESCAPE study.
Renal hypodysplasia (RHD) is characterized by a reduced nephron number, small kidney size, and disorganized renal tissue. A hereditary basis has been established for a subset of affected patients,Expand

Normative values for intima–media thickness and distensibility of large arteries in healthy adolescents
Objective Sonographic evaluation of arterial wall morphology and elasticity is increasingly accepted as a non-invasive tool in cardiovascular assessment. Several studies suggest that intima–mediaExpand

Human laminin beta2 deficiency causes congenital nephrosis with mesangial sclerosis and distinct eye abnormalities.
Congenital nephrotic syndrome (CNS) is clinically and genetically heterogeneous, with mutations in WT1, NPHS1 and NPHS2 accounting for part of cases. We recently delineated a new autosomal recessiveExpand

Nephropathic cystinosis: an international consensus document.
Cystinosis is caused by mutations in the CTNS gene (17p13.2), which encodes for a lysosomal cystine/proton symporter termed cystinosin. It is the most common cause of inherited renal Fanconi syndromeExpand

Determinants of Blood Pressure in Preschool Children: The Role of Parental Smoking
Background— Hypertension is the leading risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Although accumulating evidence suggests tracking of blood pressure from childhood into adult life, there is littleExpand

Strict blood-pressure control and progression of renal failure in children.
BACKGROUND Although inhibition of the renin-angiotensin system delays the progression of renal failure in adults with chronic kidney disease, the blood-pressure target for optimal renal protection isExpand
