The spectrum of congenital heart diseases in down syndrome. A retrospective study from Northwest Saudi Arabia.
CONCLUSION: The frequency of CHD in our DS cohort is comparable with Europe, Asia ,and other KSA regions. However its pattern appears to be different from some areas in KSA. PMID: 27381537 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSION: Current data imply that PCI for CCS does not improve outcomes in a large percentage of cases. A symptomatic benefit exists only in patients with frequent angina pectoris. The selection of CCS patients for PCI needs to be more strictly bound to the recommendations of current guidelines, particularly in Germany. PMID: 32234189 [PubMed - in process]
Down syndrome (DS) is one of the most common chromosomal abnormalities. The incidence of DS at birth in developed countries has remained relatively stable over the last 20 years, at approximately 1 per 1000 live births. DS is associated with a number of congenital defects and is also at increased risk of conditions that may develop later in life, and thus requires multidisciplinary care and close surveillance. Congenital heart disease (CHD) is present in 35%–50% of patients and is haemodynamically significant in two-thirds.1 Early diagnosis and treatment in expert centres are essential for improving short-term a...
CONCLUSION: Our study confirmed that the profile and type of CHD in DS in the Moroccan setting exhibited slight differences in the distribution of these CHDs compared with European neighbours and other Western countries. Further studies are needed to determine which variables have an impact on these differences. PMID: 27805241 [PubMed - in process]
