Three-Years Height Outcome During rhGH Therapy in Severe Short Subjects Affected by Skeletal Dysplasias

Massart F , Gnesi L , Baggiani A , Miccoli M

Background: Skeletal dysplasias comprise heterogeneous disorders often characterised by short stature with abnormalities of one or more of epiphysis, metaphysis or diaphysis. Over 200 types of skeletal dysplasias are identified, most of which are autosomal dominantly inherited. Actually, surgery has attempted to correct bone deformities but drug therapy for improving their severe short stature has been rarely attempted.Objective and hypotheses: Administr...

Unmet needs and challenges experienced by patients with growth disorders and their caregivers: A patient expert view.

Thomas Marc , Harvey Jamie , Kocabicak Sergül

Background: The diagnosis, treatment, and management of growth disorders can have a substantial burden on patients and caregivers. Research was conducted with patient experts to understand challenges experienced by patients with growth disorders and their caregivers, and identify opportunities to improve care.Methods: A mixed-methods approach was used to obtain insights from patient experts between October 2022-January 2...

Effect of serum TSH level on ovarian volume in prepubertal girls with subclinical hypothyroidism

Yigit Özgül , Sert Tugba , Ekinci Deniz , Kirankaya Aysegül , Kilinç Suna

Background and Objectives: Enlargement and cystic changes in ovaries of patients with longstanding overt hypothyroidism has been observed in numerous case reports. But there is limited data about the effect of subclinical hypothyroidism (SH) on ovarian volume and ovarian cyst formation. We evaluated the relationship between serum thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) level and ovarian volume and sonographic appearance in prepubertal girls with SH.<p class="abs...

Body Surface Area Estimation in Girls with Turner Syndrome: Implications for Interpretation of Aortic Sized Index

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...

Secondary Pseudohypoaldosteronism Type 1: the Role of a Urinary Steroid Profile

Grace M L , Murray D M , Joyce C , Taylor N F , Ghataore L , O'Connell S M

Background: Secondary pseudohypoaldosteronism (PHA) type 1 is an uncommon salt losing condition of infancy caused by transient resistance of the mineralocorticoid receptors (MR) of the renal tubule to aldosterone. This can be secondary to urinary tract infection (UTI), urinary tract malformation (UTM) or obstructive uropathy. Ninety percent of reported cases present before 3 months and nearly all are under 7 months of age.Objective and hypotheses: The co...

The Effect of Improved Metabolic Risk Factors and Metformin Therapy on Circulating Hepatokines in Obese, Insulin-Resistant Adolescents

Kilinç Suna , Kirankaya Aysegül , Atay Zeynep

Introduction: The molecular mechanisms underlying insulin resistance (IR) is complex and has not been fully elucidated yet. The experimental studies point out the role of liver-derived proteins, called hepatokines.Aims: To compare metabolic parameters and hepatokines levels in obese adolescents and healthy controls and to assess the effect of metformin therapy on plasma hepatokines levels in obese, insulin-resistant adol...

Chronic Bone Disease in Pediatric Sickle Cell Disease Including a Case of Successful Bisphosphonate Therapy

Grimbly Chelsey , Girgis Rose , Jaremko Jacob L , Bruce Aisha

Background: Avascular necrosis (AVN) is common in Sickle Cell Disease (SCD), frequently involving the femoral and humeral head and less commonly involving the spine. AVN leads to joint collapse, chronic pain and disability, and often requires joint replacement in early adulthood. There are no medical therapies for AVN in SCD despite the high burden of disease and there are no published reports of bisphosphonate therapy in this condition....

Evaluation of Vitamin D Status and Its Correlation with Gonadal Function in Children at Mini-puberty

Kılınc Suna , Atay Enver

Objective: Most recent evidence from conducted in human and animal studies suggests that vitamin D has a potential role in the physiology of reproductive function in both genders. We investigate the role of vitamin D in male and female gonadal function at mini-puberty period with particular emphasis on production of sex steroids and gonadal peptide hormones. Additionaly, this study evaluated serum levels of luteinizing hormone (LH), follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), estradio...

The Association between Insulin Resistance and Lower Extremity Muscle Strength, Static and Dynamic Standing Balances in Obese Adolescents

Akinci Aysehan , Ersoy Yuksel , Dundar Ismaıl

Background: Obesity is characterized by insulin resistance of target tissues, such as skeletal muscle, adipose tissue and liver. Skeletal muscle tissue is responsible for approximately 75% of whole body insulin-stimulated glucose uptake. Previously, it has been shown that skeletal muscle strength is significantly associated with insulin resistance in type-2 diabetics and non-diabetics.Objective and hypotheses: To examine the relationship between insulin ...
