Assessment of systemic - pulmonary collateral arteries in children with cyanotic congenital heart disease using multidetector - row computed tomography: Comparison with conventional angiography.
Cyanotic congenital heart disease occurs in 9.5% of all congenital cardiac defects, and 62% of these patients are women.
focused on patients, who were born with cyanotic congenital heart disease and went on to develop adrenal gland or related tumors called pheochromocytomas or paragangliomas.
Tetralogy of Fallot is estimated to occur in as many as 1 in 3600 live births, making it the most common cyanotic congenital heart disease [3].
In a recent letter to editor of New England Journal of Medicine Vaidya and colleagues report the identification of gain-of-function somatic mutations of EPAS1, which encodes for HIF-2[alpha], in pheochromocytomas and paragangliomas in four of five patients who presented with cyanotic congenital heart disease. The authors concluded that the EPAS1 mutations endow chromaffin cells exposed to chronic hypoxia amplified the ability of development of the oncogenic properties of HIF-2[alpha] [11].
