The association between isolated congenital heart defects and consanguinity was examined in 759 Lebanese patients with different types of congenital heart malformations. The subjects were patients of the Children's Cardiac Registry Center (CCRC) at the American University of Beirut Medical Center. The proportion of first‐cousin marriages among cardiac subjects was compared to that of the National Collaborative Perinatal Neonatal Network (NCPNN), after adjusting for the subjects' geographic… Expand
Parental consanguinity increases congenital heart diseases in South India
TLDR
For every incidence of parental consanguinity, the risk of birth of a child with CHD increases, and the important role played by segregation of recessive genes in the offspring resulting in the causation of CHDs is emphasized. Expand
Consanguineous marriage and congenital heart defects: A case‐control study in the neonatal period
TLDR
A familial factor in the multifactorial etiology of CHDs is suggested, and additional epidemiologic and family‐based genetic studies are needed to understand the complex cause of CHD. Expand
Congenital cardiac disease and inbreeding: specific defects escape higher risk due to parental consanguinity
TLDR
Only some types of congenitally malformed hearts have an increased percentage of parental Consanguinity, suggesting that those types with no increased risk due to parental consanguinity are determined by genetic factors that are X-linked or exclusively autosomal dominant. Expand
Association of consanguinity with congenital heart diseases in a teaching hospital in Western Iraq.
TLDR
Consanguinity was found a significant risk factor, more affecting the VSD and ASD than ToF subtypes, while parental age and infant gender were not found as risk factors. Expand
The Frequency of Congenital Heart Disorders among Children Issued from Consanguineous Marriages in Khorasan Province, Northeast of Iran
TLDR
The data revealed that the risk of CHD increases with parental inbreeding, but there was no significant relationship between parents inbreeding and the type ofCHD. Expand
Consanguinity and the risk of congenital heart disease
TLDR
The results suggest that the risk for congenital heart disease is increased in consanguineous unions in the studied populations, principally at first‐cousin level and closer, a factor that should be considered in empiric risk estimates in genetic counseling. Expand
Parental consanguinity in Hong Kong.
TLDR
It is essential that information on the increased risks associated with parental consanguinity is included in genetic counselling for consanguineous couples, so that they can make informed decisions. Expand
Perinatal outcome of congenital heart disease in a population with high consanguinity
TLDR
The perinatal pattern and outcome of fetuses with congenital heart disease in consanguineous marriages and joint FE clinics detect most CHD with high accuracy are reported, suggesting consanguinity contributes to a higher prevalence of fetal cardiac and non-cardiac malformations. Expand
Pattern of congenital heart disease among Egyptian children: a 3-year retrospective study
TLDR
Establishment of a national medical birth registry containing all information about all births in Egypt is needed for adequate surveillance and monitoring of perinatal health problems and congenital birth defects so that preventive measures can be early implemented. Expand
Consanguinity and Birth Defects in the Jerusalem Perinatal Study Cohort
TLDR
A strong association of consanguinity with poverty and low education points to the need to avoid exposure to environmental hazards in these families. Expand

TLDR
In a population with a high degree of inbreeding, consanguinity may exacerbate underlying genetic risk factors, particularly in the offspring of first cousins, supporting a hypothesis of autosomal recessive gene involvement in congenital heart disease. Expand

TLDR
This study shows that the genetic influence is an important factor in the etiology of such malformations and differences in CHD frequencies were found to be statistically significant. Expand

TLDR
The present study suggests a genetic influence and also casts doubt on the applicability of a polygenic threshold model to all forms of cardiac malformation. Expand

In conclusion, consanguinity did not result in reproductive wastage, but was found to be an important factor in the causation of specific illnesses in offspring. Expand
Marked parental consanguinity as a cause for increased major malformations in an Israeli Arab community.
TLDR
The study demonstrates a marked high rate of consanguineous marriages, whose effect leads to a marked increase in major malformations and thus a prominent public health problem in such villages, and requires a unique genetic counseling approach. Expand

TLDR
The importance of genetic factors in various congenital malformations, such as neural tube defects and cleft lip/palate or in various forms of infertility, was confirmed by the observation of a significantly higher consanguinity rate in the parents of these patients than is observed in the general population.

TLDR
The highest prevalence of parental consanguinity was in Pakistani Muslims (69%), whereas in Muslims from other countries it was 23%, and it was less than 1% in non-Muslims and in the majority of consanguineous Muslim pedigrees the degree of inbreeding was greater than that for first cousin parents.
