Сardiac arrhythmia in children with connective tissue dysplasia: clinical and hemodynamic characteristics

[CTD in pediatrics]
Marina Galaktionova; Dmitry Maiseenko;

The clinical and instrumental examination of 336 children with congenital minor heart abnormalities on the background of connective tissue dysplasia (stigmatization – 9–11 stigmas) was conducted. The control group consisted of 54 children of the similar age with no more than 5 stigmas and without heart pathology. It was shown that the cardiovascular system in children with heart connective tissue dysplasia functions tensely even at rest.
High frequency of arrhythmias, the tendency towards an increase of the atria electrical systole and prolongation of the impulse conduction from sinus node to AV node make these children endangered by the cardiovascular pathology in the adulthood.
