Skeletal Disproportion in Girls with Turner Syndrome

McVey L , Fletcher A , Murtaza M , Donaldson MD , Wong SC , Mason A

Background: Turner Syndrome (TS) is associated with short stature and skeletal disproportion. The impact of treatment with recombinant human growth hormone (rhGH) and oestrogen therapy on body proportions is unclear.Objectives: To evaluate sitting height (SH) and leg length (LL) in TS before growth promoting therapies and at adult height.Method: Retrospective study of height (Ht), SH and LL standard deviation score (SDS) in TS. Bod...

Fletcher A , McVey L , Guaragna-Filho G , Hunter L , Lemos-Marinia SHV , Santoro RI , Mason A , Wong SC

Background: Aortic sized index (ASI) defined as aortic root size/body surface area (BSA) is used to provide information on dissection risk in Turner Syndrome (TS). There are multiple equations for estimation of BSA. The impact of using a different BSA equation for calculation of ASI is unknown.Method: We calculated BSA of 114 TS girls from 2273 outpatient visits using Dubois, Mostellar, Haycock, Gehan, Boyd and Furqan formulae. BSA estimation with Dubois...

Iodine is an essential dietary micronutrient required for thyroid hormone synthesis and neurodevelopment in utero. Evidence of iodine insufficiency among British women is of particular concern in the context of pregnancy. The Mothers and Babies at Yorkhill (MABY) study is a Glasgow-based longitudinal cohort study assessing the iodine and thyroid status of pregnant women and their offspring.Pregnant women were recruited from antenatal clinics (20...
