Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) is the most inherited common autoinflammatory disease (AID) with mutations in the MEFV (MEditerraneanFeVer) gene.The Mor- and Pras-Score modified for children and C-reactive protein (CRP) were used to assess FMF disease severity in Germany. We evaluate the applicability of the 2 severity scores and the correlations between(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze the prevalence of juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) and diabetes end points in pediatric patients with type 1 diabetes. STUDY DESIGN Patients with type 1 diabetes, recorded from 1995 up to September 2013 in the Diabetes Patienten Verlaufsdokumentation database (n = 54,911, <16 years of age, 47% girls), were analyzed. The patients'(More)
BACKGROUND A recent trial has demonstrated short-term benefits of a new minimal invasive procedure of surfactant administration in spontaneously breathing preterm infants ≥ 26 weeks (less invasive surfactant administration, LISA). AIM To assess safety as well as short- and long-term outcomes of the LISA procedure in preterm infants between 23-28 weeks of(More)
High circulating levels of asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA) and low circulating levels of homoarginine (hArg) are known cardiovascular risk factors in adults. While in adults with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) circulating ADMA is significantly elevated, in children and adolescents the reported ADMA data are contradictory. In 102 children with T1DM and(More)
Adult subjects with growth hormone (GH) deficiency (GHD) are known to have reduced life expectancy due to increased cardiovascular and cerebrovascular events. In adults, these events are associated with elevated circulating concentrations of asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA) which is an endogenous inhibitor of l-arginine (Arg)-derived nitric oxide (NO).(More)
BACKGROUND Insulin pump therapy is well established in the treatment of children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes. Most studies focus on outcome parameters like hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c), hypoglycemia, and quality of life, whereas few reports address patients who discontinue pump therapy. OBJECTIVE This survey focuses on the discontinuation rate of(More)
OBJECTIVE The prevalence of cystic fibrosis-related diabetes (CFRD) has increased with improved life expectancy of patients. Clinical and care characteristics were compared with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) in a multicenter analysis of pediatric data. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS Auxological and treatment data from 47,227 patients aged younger than 21(More)
BACKGROUND In type 1 diabetes (T1D), the use of continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion (CSII) has increased steadily in the last years. Compared with conventional insulin injection regimes, major advantages might be a nearly physiological insulin secretion, lower rates of hypoglycemia, higher flexibility in daily life, and increased quality of life. Data(More)
BACKGROUND In Germany/Austria, data on medical care for cystic fibrosis-related diabetes (CFRD) is limited. METHODS Anonymized data from 659 CFRD patients were analyzed and compared to the latest ADA/CFF guidelines. RESULTS Specialized diabetes clinics were attended less frequently than recommended (3.1 vs. 4.0 times yearly). 7.9% of patients had a(More)
Comparison of conventional radiographs (CR) of distal tibial growth plate fractures [Salter–Harris (SH) fracture types I–V/triplane fractures I–III] with computed tomography (CT) as the reference standard and assessment of diagnostic benefit of CT imaging in the affected patients. We retrospectively evaluated all growth plate injuries of the distal tibia(More)
