Impact of Noncardiac Congenital and Genetic Abnormalities on Outcomes in Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome
Survival in hypoplastic left heart syndrome is strongly influenced by the presence of noncardiac abnormalities. Strategies to improve mortality in infants with noncardiac abnormalities should be explored. Presence of chromosomal defects, especially Turner syndrome, should enter decision-management o...

We report two patients considered to have an atypical presentation of Hallerman-Streiff syndrome (HSS) associated with laterality and cardiac defects. Clinical features include typical facial gestalt, atrophy of the skin, and hypotrichosis. Ophthalmologic abnormalities, normally present in HSS, are...
[Development genes encoding transcription factors and dysmorphology].
Studies of children with developmental abnormalities of genetic origin are necessary for accurate diagnosis, prognostication, patient management, and genetic counseling. Such studies can also help to identify genes involved in normal and abnormal morphogenesis, which often act as patterning genes an...

Is rapid aneuploidy screening used alone acceptable in prenatal diagnosis? An evaluation of the possible role of ultrasound examination.
Advanced maternal age and increased Down's risk with maternal serum marker were the most common indications. Chromosome abnormalities were detected in 3.64% of the pregnancies tested, and unexpected structural anomalies in 0.63% (n = 36). Translocations were more likely to be reciprocal, balanced an...
Fetal pathology in second-trimester miscarriages.
Malformation could be identified in 13.05% of all cases. In almost one third of the patients there was a positive history. In the cases having a malformation, expressed dominance of male fetuses could be observed. Among the fetopathologically identified malformations, 49 were isolated. The most comm...
The frequency of consanguineous marriage in eastern Turkey.
Of all families, 224 (34.4%) had CM, and 168 (75%) had first-degree consanguinity. A lower CM rate was found in mothers who graduated from secondary school or upgrading (p < 0.01). However, no relationship was found between CM and fathers' education level. While a low CM rate was found in families w...
