  author={Inayatullah Khan and Taj Muhammad},
  journal={Gomal Journal of Medical Sciences},
Background: Patients with Down’s syndrome are prone to have congenital heart defects. This study was conducted to evaluate the frequency of various congenital heart defects in children with Down’s syndrome in Khyber Pukhtunkhwa province. Material & Methods: This descriptive study was conducted at Department of Pediatrics, Lady Reading Hospital Peshawar, from July 2011 to June 2012. Fifty-five phenotypically Down’s syndrome children born in Khyber Pukhtunkhwa province, age 2 days to 13 years…

AVSD is the commonest CHD in the series, which is similar to previous reports, and increased access to definitive intervention is advocated since surgical outcome in such patients may be favorable.

Avoidance of passive maternal smoking and consanguineous marriage together with maternal folic acid supplementation could contribute to further reduction of CHD in children with DS.

Early recognition, diagnosis of the problem and prompt referral of children with suspicion of CHD is mandatory for better management and if possible get corrective surgery done till establishment of pediatric cardiac center in Yemen.

Functional analysis of a CASZ1/CHD5 interaction in cardiac development and disease

To further understand the mechanisms by which CASTOR (CASZ1) regulates cardiac development, a yeast two-hybrid screen was performed to identify putative interacting partners and established protocols to further validate the putative interactions.



Prevalence of congenital heart defects in patients with Down syndrome in the municipality of Pelotas, Brazil.

The prevalence of Down syndrome and congenital heart defects in patients with Down syndrome in Pelotas, Brazil is similar to the rates found by other authors; therefore, the importance of diagnostic suspicion and early referral by pediatricians to cardiac evaluation is highlighted.

Congenital cardiac disease in children with Down's syndrome in Guatemala

The high frequency of patency of the arterial duct, and the differential distribution of the cardiac malformations associated with Down's syndrome among Guatemalan children, differ from what has been reported in the United States of America, Europe, and Asia.

Congenital cardiovascular malformations in Chinese children with Down's syndrome.

The most common lesion was ventricular septal defect which was present in 43.6%, a higher frequency than that reported in Caucasians, and patent ductus arteriosus was the most frequent coexisting lesion.

The most common CHD in DS is VSD and the most common noncardiac anomaly is gastrointestinal, and Down syndrome patients should be screened by echocardiography early in life to avoid OPVD.

Population-based study of congenital heart defects in Down syndrome.

This report is unique in that it contains the largest number of trisomy 21 infants ascertained in a population-based study where modern techniques for diagnosing cardiac abnormalities predominate.

Congenital heart disease in Down's syndrome.

Eighty cases of Down's syndrome were found among 1504 children with congenital heart disease under the age of 15 years; this seemed to appear at an earlier age in mongoloid children than in other children with ventricular septal defect.

Consanguinity and pattern of congenital heart defects in Down syndrome in Kashmir, India

Consanguinity is more common and severe among DS children who are products of consanguineous marriage, and CHD is more frequently seen in female DS children.

Cardiac abnormalities of Sudanese patients with Down’s syndrome and their short-term outcome

The pattern of CHD in Sudanese patients with DS was comparable with that in the literature, including the rare occurrence of AVSD with intact atrial septum, and an unreported association with right atrioventricular valve malformation was described.

[Incidence of Down syndrome at a University Hospital Maternity of Chile. A 25-year record: 1972-1997].

A higher prevalence rate of Down syndrome than in previous periods in the same maternity, was found in the period 1990-1197 and the influence of maternal age on this prevalence was clearly established.
