  1. 1. Long QT syndrome in Sweden : founder effects and associated cardiac phenotypes

    Author : Annika Winbo; Annika Rydberg; Eric Schulze-Bahr; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Long QT Syndrome; Jervell and Lange-Nielsen Syndrome; inherited arrhythmia; founder effects; clinical genetics; haplotype analysis; mutation age; founder mutation; clinical phenotype; life-threatening cardiac events; mutation-specific; KCNQ1 gene; modifier genes; sequence variants; risk stratification; risk factor; gender; Pediatrics; pediatrik;

    Abstract : Background: We aimed to increase the knowledge regarding the familial arrhythmogenic disorder Long QT Syndrome (LQTS) and its recessive variant Jervell and Lange-Nielsen Syndrome (JLNS) in Sweden, including prevalences and clinical phenotypes. A specific focus was directed towards two KCNQ1 mutations –p.Y111C and p. READ MORE

  2. 2. Heart rate variability and pacemaker treatment in children with Fontan circulation

    Author : Jenny Alenius Dahlqvist; Annika Rydberg; Urban Wiklund; Jaana Pihkala; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Congenital heart disease; Fontan circulation; heart rate variability; pacemaker; sinus node dysfunction; pediatrik; Pediatrics; kardiologi; Cardiology;

    Abstract : Background: Fontan surgery is performed in children with univentricular heart defects. Arrhythmias are frequent complications, occasionally requiring pacemaker treatment. Previous data regarding indications and risk factors for pacemaker treatment in Fontan patients is limited and conflicting. READ MORE

  3. 3. Psychosocial aspects of living with congenital heart disease : child, family, and professional perspectives

    Author : Anna-Lena Birkeland; Annika Rydberg; Bruno Hägglöf; Lennart Köhler; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; breaking bad news; children adolescents; congenital heart disease; communication; content analyse; coping; counselling; interprofessional team; medical education; patient relationships; paediatric cardiology; professional role; psychosocial inventory method; qualitative method; quantitative method stress; teamwork;

    Abstract : Background: The vast majority of infants born with congenital heart disease (CHD) reach adulthood because of the developments in cardiology in recent decades. This thesis aims to describe the psychosocial situation of child/adolescent cardiac patients and their families, investigate the situation faced by parents and siblings initially and over time, investigate the approaches paediatric cardiologists use in encountering the family, and describe the teamwork occurring in paediatric cardiology teams (PCTs) in Sweden.

  4. 4. Long QT syndrome : studies of diagnostic methods

    Author : Ulla-Britt Diamant; Steen M Jensen; Annika Rydberg; Thomas Gilljam; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cardiology; kardiologi;

    Abstract : Background: The Long QT Syndrome (LQTS) is a hereditary heart disease with risk of malignant ventricular arrhythmia and sudden cardiac death. Despite our increased knowledge about genotype and phenotype correlation we still rely on the 12-lead ECG for assessment of the QT interval and the T-wave morphology for diagnosis and risk stratification.

  5. 5. When the paediatric heart is affected : impact on nutrition, growth and body composition from infancy to adolescence

    Author : Lena Hansson; Annika Rydberg; Inger Öhlund; Torbjörn Lind; Tanis Fenton; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : Congenital heart disease; Patent ductus arteriosus; Preterm infant; Infant growth; Energy intake; Dietary fatty acid; Micronutrient intake; Vitamin D; Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry DXA ; Fontan circulation.; pediatrik; Pediatrics; Food and Nutrition; kostvetenskap; kardiologi; Cardiology;

    Abstract : BackgroundChildren with complex congenital heart disease (CHD) and very low birth weight (VLBW) infants with a patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) are two distinct groups of patients with different clinical care needs. Irrespective of the type of heart condition, nutritional intake and growth is largely affected in these individuals during infancy. READ MORE
