Pituitary Stalk Interruption Syndrome from Infancy to Adulthood: Clinical, Hormonal, and Radiological Assessment According to the Initial Presentation
TLDR
The progressive worsening of endocrine impairment throughout childhood justifies periodic follow-up to check for additional hormonal deficiencies in patients with PSIS.
Necdin Plays a Role in the Serotonergic Modulation of the Mouse Respiratory Network: Implication for Prader-Willi Syndrome
TLDR
It is proposed that the lack of Necdin expression induces perinatal serotonergic alterations that affect the maturation and function of the respiratory network, inducing breathing deficits in mice and probably in Prader-Willi patients.
Hyperghrelinemia precedes obesity in Prader-Willi syndrome.
TLDR
Plasma ghrelin levels in children with PWS are elevated at any age, including during the first years of life, thus preceding the development of obesity.
Oxytocin may be useful to increase trust in others and decrease disruptive behaviours in patients with Prader-Willi syndrome: a randomised placebo-controlled trial in 24 patients
TLDR
Patients with PWS who received a single intranasal administration of OT displayed significantly increased trust in others and decreased sadness tendencies with less disruptive behaviour in the two days following administration than did patients who received placebo.
Long-Term Evolution of Endocrine Disorders and Effect of GH Therapy in 35 Patients with Pituitary Stalk Interruption Syndrome
TLDR
Long-term evolution of endocrine functions and the results of GH treatment in 35 patients with pituitary stalk interruption are reported, finding height gain was significantly higher in patients who started GH treatment before 4 years (p = 0.002).
Early Diagnosis and Multidisciplinary Care Reduce the Hospitalization Time and Duration of Tube Feeding and Prevent Early Obesity in PWS Infants
TLDR
Early diagnosis combined with multidisciplinary care decreases the hospitalization time, duration of gastric tube feeding and prevents early obesity in PWS infants.
Complications of Scoliosis Surgery in Prader-Willi Syndrome
TLDR
Scoliosis surgery is frequently necessary in PWS and is associated with high rate of complications, often related to specific features of this syndrome the surgeon should recognize and consider.
Review of 64 cases of death in children with Prader–Willi syndrome (PWS)
TLDR
The analysis shows the high frequency of respiratory infections in both GH‐treated and ‐untreated PWS children, and the first 9 months of GH treatment seems to be a high‐risk period emphasizing the need for comprehensive care before and during GH treatment.
Early diagnosis and care is achieved but should be improved in infants with Prader-Willi syndrome
TLDR
This study is the first to assess the birth incidence of PWS in France, at 1/21,000 births, and underscores the need to optimize neonatal care of infants with PWS.
Scoliosis in Patients With Prader-Willi Syndrome
TLDR
A statistical association between kyphotic deformity and the need for surgical treatment and the role of growth-hormone treatment on the natural history of scoliosis could be determined, and careful monitoring during treatment is recommended.
