Length Estimation Based on Clinical and Anthropometric Measures in Newborns

Beauregard-Paz Martha , Miranda-Lora America L. , Cruz-Hernandez Ana M. , Rivas-Rivas Rodolfo , Klunder-Klunder Miguel

Background and Aims: The hospitalized neonates requires specialized and multidisciplinary approach and the nutritional follow-up is an essential part of the care. The anthropometry is required to evaluate the nutritional status of patients over time. The main measurements to determine the nutritional status in infants are weight and length. These measures are used to evaluate indexes as length for age, weight for length and body mass index. According to the above, the measurem...

Pubertal Onset in Boys is Influenced by BMI and Genetic Variation of Fshb and Fshr: A Study in Two Population-Based Cohorts of Different Genetic Ancestry

Busch Alexander S. , Hagen Casper P. , Main Katharina M. , Almstrup Kristian , Pereira Anita , Corvalan Camila , Mericq Veronica , Juul Anders

Background: Age at onset of puberty exhibits a remarkable variation mirroring nutritional, environmental, socioeconomic and genetic factors. While large genome-wide association studies identified more than hundred genetic loci associated with age at menarche in girls, knowledge on loci associated with age at pubertal onset in boys is sparse. FSHB/FSHR genetic variants have been shown to affect pubertal timing in girls and reproductive parameters in men.<p class="a...

Tissue Engineered Collagen Based Tubular Scaffolds for Urethral Regeneration. A Novel Technology for the Surgical Treatment of VSD (Variation of Sex Development) Patients with Severe Hypospadias

Pinnagoda Kalitha , Larsson Hans M , Vythilingam Ganesh , Vardar Elif , Engelhardt Eva-Maria , Thambidorai Rajendrarao C , Hubbell Jeffrey A , Frey Peter

Background: Actual surgical procedures for the treatment of patients with VSD (Variation of Sex Development), in particular severe hypospadias, are associated with frequent post-operative complications.Objective and hypotheses: Tissue engineered collagen tubes are a promising alternative.Method: We elaborated a new, two layered, collagen based tube that can be sutured. Mechanical testing proved a better resistance of those tubes co...

A Novel MKRN3 Nonsense Mutation Causing Familial Central Precocious Puberty

Christoforidis Athanasios , Skordis Nicos , Fanis Pavlos , Dimitriadou Meropi , Sevastidou Maria , Phelan Marie M. , Neocleous Vassos , Phylactou Leonidas A.

Background: The onset of puberty is influenced by the interplay of stimulating and restraining factors, many of which have a genetic origin. Premature activation of the GnRH secretion in central precocious puberty (CPP) may arise either from gain-of-function mutations of the KISS1 and KISS1R genes or loss-of-function manner mutations of the MKRN3 gene leading to MKRN3 deficiency.Objective and hypotheses: Explore the genetic cau...

The International AGD Consortium: A Multi-center Study of 3939 Infants and Children with Anogenital Distance Measurements

Lindhardt Johansen Marie , Thankamony Ajay , Acerini Carlo , Kold Jensen Tina , Main Katharina M. , Holm Petersen Jorgen , Swan Shanna , Juul Anders

Background: The anogenital distance (AGD) is considered a valid marker of altered androgen action in utero. Recently, reduced AGD has been shown in males with hypospadias, cryptorchidism, reduced semen quality and infertility. It has also been proposed as a new marker to be used by clinicians when managing patients with Disorders of Sex Development. However, little normative data exist and measurement methods vary.Objective and hypotheses: We established...

Intensive Exercise Intervention for Long-term Adolescent and Young Adult Survivors of Oncology-Related Cranial Insult: A Pilot Study

Rath Shoshana , Long Treya M , Bear Natasha , Graham Kerrie , Atkinson Helen , Naylor Lousie , Cole Catherine , Gottardo Nick , Choong Catherine

Background: Survivors of childhood cancer are at increased risk of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality in later life. Although the brain is known to be involved in control of metabolic functions including appetite regulation and energy expenditure (1), little data are available relating to the risk of metabolic dysfunction secondary to cerebral injury. Several studies have attempted to investigate the impact of exercise on physical and psychosocial parameters in survivors o...

Recognition of the Fetal and Perinatal Features of the Prader-Willi Syndrome is Required to Avoid Delay in Diagnosis

Cizmecioglu Filiz Mine , Jones Jeremy Huw , Paterson Wendy Forsyth , Kherra Sakina , Kourime Mariam , Shaikh M Guftar , Donaldson Malcolm

Introduction: Prompt diagnosis in Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) is important for counselling the family and thus pre-empt the hyperphagic phase of the condition.Objectives: To determine the key diagnostic features of PWS during the perinatal period and hence recommend strategies to ensure early diagnosis.Study design: Retrospective case note review with prospective questionnaire survey of birth details for the affected child and heal...

Usefulness of Growth Hormone Transient Treatment Suspension in Prepubertal Children Treated with Growth Hormone

Martinez Barahona Maria , Cecenarro Laura , Murillo Valles Marta , Luisa Granada Ybern M. , Ropero Ramos Esther , Bel Comos Joan

Background: The primary goal of treatment is to achieve a final height within the normal range and avoid the physical and psychological consequences of short stature (SS). If after a time, treatment efficacy criteria are not achieved, it is necessary to revalue its usefulness. There is no consensus about which conduct should be adopted in these cases. An alternative, is the suspension of rhGH treatment and evaluate the clinical and biochemical results to decide to continue or ...

Is it Cautious to Wait for Serum Basal Calcitonin Levels Rise in Patients with Ret Codon C634 Mutation?

De Leon Esther Gonzalez Ruiz , Fernandez Maria Sanz , Sanchez Amparo Rodriguez , Palanca Javier Menarguez , Arnao M. Dolores Rodriguez

Background: 2015 ATA Guidelines for management of medullary thyroid cancer (MTC) include C634 RET codon mutation in ‘High risk’ group, recomendating prophylactic thryroidectomy before 5 years old based on serum basal calcitonin levels (SBCt).Objective and hypotheses: We present 14 pediatric patients with C634 RET codon mutation, who underwent prophylactic thyroidectomy in our center, their clinical and analytical features and anatomopathologica...
