Risks to the offspring of patients with some common congenital heart defects

Journal of Medical Genetics 18(1): 8-16

Risks to the offspring of patients with some common congenital heart defects

The families of 424 adult index patients with ventricular septal defect, right ventricular outflow tract obstruction, or combinations of these two abnormalities, were visited and interviewed, and whenever possible the children of index patients were examined clinically. Congenital heart defects were present in 9 of 308 children, 8 of 899 sibs, 4 of 840 parents, and 4 of 731 nephews and nieces of the index patients. The last three figures are likely to be underestimates owing to the design of the study. Comparison of pairs of affected relatives suggests that the group of lesions studied may have genetic determinants in common.

Epidemiologic studies have reported conflicting results regarding maternal alcohol consumption before and during pregnancy, and the risk of congenital heart defects (CHDs).

To explore the association between maternal alcohol consumption and/or binge drinking and congenital heart defects (CHDs), we conducted a meta-analysis for more sufficient evidence on this issue. We searched Medline, EMBASE, and the Cochrane Libra...

Background: Congenital heart defects (CHDs) occur in approximately 1% of all live births. Although most CHDs are of unknown etiology, a family history of CHDs is a known risk factor, and offspring of individuals with CHDs are at a higher risk of h...

Epidemiologic literature suggests that exposure to air pollutants is associated with fetal development. We investigated maternal exposures to air pollutants during weeks 2-8 of pregnancy and their associations with congenital heart defects. Mother...

There is evidence in experimental model systems that exposure to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) results in congenital heart defects (CHDs); however, to our knowledge, this relationship has not been examined in humans. Therefore, we conduc...
