AbstractAnorectal malformation (ARM) is classified as low, intermediate, or high; accurate diagnosis of the type during the early neonatal period is important to determine the appropriate initial surgical approach. This review assesses the role of ultrasound examination in the classification of ARM during the neonatal period, with a focus on landmarks on the sonogram, the approach used for sonography, and the optimal examination timing. The following three factors on the sonogram are used for the classification: location of the fistula, the distance between the distal rectal pouch and the anal dimple (perineum) (P –P...

CONCLUSION: Provision of implant-supported prostheses improves chewing and quality of life for patients with movement disorders and should be considered as an option in the treatment planning for tooth loss in this group of patients. However, straightforward designs that lend themselves to easier long-term maintenance should be adopted. PMID: 30109299 [PubMed - in process]

Diagnostic tech developer Masimo (NSDQ:MASI) and rival Dominion have settled a suit over blood monitoring patents, according to recently released court documents. The two companies said they reached a settlement deal over a suit brought against Masimo by Dominion claiming it infringed on patents related to noninvasive blood monitoring technology. The agreement does not include payments from either company, and leaves both sides to pay for their own legal costs, according to court documents. The settlement deal was signed by US District Judge Beth Freeman on Tuesday. Earlier this week, Masimo released results from a st...

Abstract Health surveillance of children with Down's syndrome may be inadequate. We aimed to assess adherence to health management guidelines at the main paediatric hospital in Jamaica. Ours was a retrospective descriptive study over a five-year period. Data on demographics, co-morbidities, investigations, referrals and interventions were recorded. Of 41 children included in the study, 85% were diagnosed in the neonatal period. Congenital heart disease in 29 (76%) and ophthalmological disorders in 13/24 (54%) were the most common co-morbidities. Evaluations in accordance with the American Academy of Pediatrics gui...

Masimo (NSDQ:MASI) yesterday released results from a study exploring home pulse oximetry monitoring’s ability to serve as an initial screening method to determine which children with Down syndrome should be recommended to undergo sleep studies to diagnose obstructive sleep apnea. The Irvine, Calif.-based company said that children with Down syndrome are at high risk of obstructive sleep apnea, which can only be reliably diagnosed using multichannel sleep studies, which are expensive and time-consuming. A total of 161 children with DS between 0.5 and 6 years old were selected for the trial, 25 of which were separ...

Conclusions: Critical gaps in the literature are highlighted. Research in this area is especially limited for Down syndrome and fragile X syndrome. Future directions for taking learning theories into account in interventions for children with intellectual disability are discussed, with a focus on the importance of language input.

This randomized trial compares the effects of maternal Down syndrome screening using plasma cell-free DNA (cfDNA) measures vs invasive screening on miscarriage rates among pregnant women at high risk of trisomy 21 based on first-trimester combined screening.

In this study, a total of 240 DNA samples from patients were analyzed including 100 patients with CHD only, 110 patients having CHD along with DS and 30 patients with isolated DS. A cardiovascular gene panel consisting of probes for 406 genes was used to screen DNA samples of all 240 patients for mutation identification. All variants were annotated and common variants were obtained. Briefly, 28 common variants (variants common in two or more than two individuals) were obtained in a group of samples containing DNA from DS patients having CHD as well, 63 variants were found to be unique to DS group of samples and 73 variants...
