Congenital heart malformations represent a public health problem, holding a significant percentage of the total of heart diseases. Beside the elevated frequency of the malformations, we also notice their occurrence in newborn babies with low birth weight, increasing, thus, the risk of complications and late therapeutic : Alina-Costina Luca, Andreea-Simona Holoc, C. Iordache. EPIDEMIOLOGY Major congenital malformations are abnormalities that have medical, surgical, or cosmetic significance (see 'Major' below). They occur in approximately 2 to 4 percent of livebirths [ ] and are more common in stillborn spontaneous miscarriages.

The Complete Reference for Scimitar Syndrome: Anatomy, Epidemiology, Diagnosis and Treatment gives the complete picture of this rare syndrome that is usually treated with tactics such as imaging. The book goes beyond imaging, providing a pathological and clinical description of this rare cturer: Academic Press. Introduction: Undescended testis is a genital pathology of pediatric age. But it is not rare that the diagnosis of this pathology is made in adults, especially in low income countries with management problems as Benin Republic. The purpose of this study was to describe the epidemiology and therapeutic aspects of this congenital malformation in adults, in HKM University Teaching .

Editor, Daniel Bergsma. [New York, National Foundation] (OCoLC) Document Type: Book: All Authors / Contributors: Walter Phillips Kennedy; National Foundation. Congenital Malformations is a comprehensive, practical text that highlights key perspectives on the medical management of infants with malformations.

With its convenient system-based organization and evidence-based approach, this clinically-focused guide is designed to optimize the utilization of limited diagnostic resources/5(3).

Epidemiologic Aspect of Congenital Vascular Malformation. Abstract. It is difficult to get exact epidemiologic data of congenital vascular malformation (CVM) due to confusing nomenclatures and definition of the CVMs in times past. Epidemiologic data available in the literatures often misguide the true incidence and prevalence of the by: 1.

Its original concerns, as of epidemiology generally, were “the distribution and determinants of health-related states or events in defined populations” (Last ); which in the context of malformations refers to determining whether and how specific abnormalities may Author: Harold Kalter.

Keywords:Congenital malformation, teratogen, drug use, risk factor, prevalence. Abstract. Scimitar syndrome is a rare congenital heart malformation occurring in one to three perlive births. The physiopathological mechanisms of scimitar syndrome are supported by the complex anatomical components of the disease including the abnormal drainage of one or more right pulmonary vein(s), the presence of anomalous aortopulmonary collaterals, and the.

The dysmorphology approach to congenital anomalies divides defects into one of three sequences, which are defined as problems that lead to a cascade of events: In a malformation sequence, poor formation of tissue within the fetus initiates the chain of defects, which may range from minimal to severe.

Anorectal Malformations in Children represents an international consensus in understanding and treating anorectal malformations.

Interesting new topics include tethered cord, vaginal reconstruction, continent catherizable channels, and the impact on family studies by parents' organizations.

Thus, this study supports us to understand the. There have been amazing advances in embryology, teratology, reproductive biology, genetics, and epidemiology in the past 50 years that have provided scientists and clinicians with a better perspective on the causes of congenital malformations.
