[Suicidality during perinatal period].
Abstract Suicide is one of the leading causes of maternal mortality. Mental disorders, especially mood disorders, have been identified in most perinatal suicide cases. Maternal suicidality has a negative impact on the mother-baby relationship and child development. Systematic screening for psychiatric conditions in the perinatal period is a priority. For women suffering from an acute psychiatric disorder, or a history of mental illness, multidisciplinary management should be implemented.

[Pulmonary revalvulation and rhythmologenic risks in patients with repaired tetralogy of Fallot].
Abstract Tetralogy of Fallot is a frequent congenital heart disease that has been repaired since the mid-1950s. The follow-up after repair is good despite a persistent risk of sudden death. The risk factors in long-term follow-up are advanced age at repair, hemodynamic status of the right ventricle, QRS duration≥180ms, left ventricular dysfunction, and existence of sustained or not ventricular tachycardia. In the presence of significant pulmonary regurgitation, it is necessary to perform revalvulation either by classic surgery or cardiac catheterization. To correct the risk of ventricular arrhythmia, some have ...

[Genetics of congenital heart diseases].
Abstract Developmental genetics of congenital heart diseases has evolved from analysis of serial slices in embryos towards molecular genetics of cardiac morphogenesis with a dynamic view of cardiac development. Genetics of congenital heart diseases has also changed from formal genetic analysis of familial recurrences or population-based analysis to screening for mutations in candidates genes identified in animal models. Close cooperation between molecular embryologists, pathologists involved in heart development and pediatric cardiologists is crucial for further increase of knowledge in the field of cardiac morpho...

Thinning of the lamina dura, maxillary or mandibular brown tumors, giant cell epulis are the most emblematic signs of the primary hyperparathyroidism. Other expressions are related to genetic factors such as fibrous tumors of the jaw in conjunction with mutations in the gene coding for parafibromin. PMID: 28579010 [PubMed - as supplie...

Abstract Infective endocarditis can negatively impact prognosis of congenital heart disease and has a 10-15% incidence of mortality. New guidelines recommend prophylaxis of infective endocarditis only for high-risk group (cyanotic congenital heart disease, valvular prosthesis, previous endocarditis) and for some specific invasive dental procedures. New guidelines are focused mainly on oral and cutaneous hygiene. Native shunts and valvular disease are no more targets for prophylaxis. More than half of the physicians do not follow the new guidelines. High-velocity shunts like ventricular septal defect should be incl...

The treatment of the pulmonary and extrapulmonary manifestations of cystic fibrosis.
Abstract Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a complex multisystem disease with considerable between patient variability in its manifestations and severity. In the past several decades, the range of treatments and the evidence to support their use for the pulmonary and extrapulmonary manifestations of CF have increased dramatically, contributing to the improved median survival of patients. As therapy for CF has evolved, new challenges including treatment adherence, medication intolerance and allergy, medical complications and coping with the burden of disease in the context of having a family and managing employment have aris...

The diagnosis of cystic fibrosis.
Abstract Establishing the diagnosis of cystic fibrosis (CF) is straight forward in the majority of patients: they present with a clear clinical picture (most frequently chronic respiratory symptoms plus malabsorption), the sweat chloride value is>60mmol/L and two known disease causing CFTR mutations are identified. In less than 5% of subjects, mainly those with a milder or limited phenotype, the diagnostic process is more complex, because initial diagnostic test results are inconclusive: sweat chloride concentration in the intermediate range, less than 2 CF causing mutations identified or both. These patients s...

The changing epidemiology and demography of cystic fibrosis.
Abstract Once considered a pediatric disease with a poor prognosis, individuals born with cystic fibrosis (CF) today can expect to live well into adulthood. The implementation of multidisciplinary care, novel treatments and newborn screening has resulted in the rapid evolution in the demographics of the CF population. The purpose of this review is to highlight the evolving epidemiology and demographics of the CF population internationally.

Current and emerging comorbidities in cystic fibrosis.
Abstract Cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) is expressed ubiquitously throughout the body. Thus, while respiratory manifestations dominate much of cystic fibrosis (CF) care, there are prominent multi-organ manifestations and comorbidities. In the general population, the number of comorbidities increases with aging. Few illnesses have experienced such a dramatic improvement in survival as CF, which has been transformed from an illness of childhood death to one of adult survival. Hence, as longevity increases in CF, it is paralleled by an increasing number of patients with multicomplex comorb...

Common clinical features of CF (respiratory disease and exocrine pancreatic insufficiency).
Abstract First described as a disease of the pancreas, cystic fibrosis is a genetically inherited progressive disease affecting multiple organ systems. Pulmonary and pancreatic involvement is common in individuals with cystic fibrosis, and the former is attributable to most of the mortality that occurs with the condition. This chapter provides an overview of a clinical approach to the pulmonary and pancreatic manifestations of cystic fibrosis.

New treatments targeting the basic defects in cystic fibrosis.
Abstract Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a monogenic autosomal recessive disorder affecting around 75,000 individuals worldwide. It is a multi-system disease but the main morbidity and mortality is caused by chronic lung disease. Due to newborn screening, a multidisciplinary approach to care and intensive symptomatic treatment, the prognosis has dramatically improved over the last decades and there are currently more adults than children in many countries. However, CF is still a very severe disease with a current median age of life expectancy in the fourth decade of life. The disease is caused by mutations in the cystic f...

Abstract Testicular tumor of adrenogenital syndrome is a rare and benign anomaly usually presenting as bilateral testicular masses. It is the most important cause of infertility in adult male congenital adrenal hyperplasia. Distinction between testicular tumors of adrenogenital syndrome and Leydig cell tumors can be problematic; it is based on clinical, histopathologic, immunohistochemical and endocrine features. Biopsy is advised in cases of longstanding tumors in infertile patients and when surgery is indicated. Fertility preservation is a key management goal in testicular tumor of adrenogenital syndrome.

[The successful saga of percutaneous pulmonary valvulation in congenital heart diseases].
Abstract With new surgical techniques, more and more complex congenital heart defects are treated requiring sometimes right ventricle to pulmonary artery conduit implantation. In order to extend RV to PA conduit lifespan, 15 years ago a valved stent was developed. The implantation technique was progressively standardized to decrease risks of procedural complications. Medium and long-term hemodynamic results of the stent were so good that indications were broadened to native or complex right ventricular outflow tracts. Currently, 2 types of stents are implanted routinely: the Melody valve(®) (Medtronic, Minneap...

The detection rate of the mp-MRI for significant cancers of small volume (0.5-1cm(3)) with a Gleason score≥7 is>85 %. The prostate mp-MRI optimizes the management of cancers classified as low risk of progression by providing aggressive criteria for misclassified lesions, which require an active treatment and enhance the clinicopathological criteria of indolence for subclinical lesions, which can justify of ...

DISCUSSION: Consensual situations, in which the general practitioners may be able to stop anticoagulation themselves, are isolated distal DVT without cancer and proximal DVT caused by a major reversible risk factor. Situations justifying a vascular medical advice were unprovoked DVT, DVT in a context of pregnancy, postpartum, cancer and proximal DVT in a context of hormonal therapy.
