Diagnosis of bronchiectasis and airway wall thickening in children with cystic fibrosis: Objective airway-artery quantification

Objectives To quantify airway and artery (AA)-dimensions in cystic fibrosis (CF) and control patients for objective CT diagnosis of bronchiectasis and airway wall thickness (AWT). Methods Spirometer-guided inspiratory and expiratory CTs of 11 CF and 12 control patients were collected retrospectively. Airway pathways were annotated semi-automatically to reconstruct three...

Altered skeletal muscle (mitochondrial) properties in patients with mitochondrial DNA single deletion myopathy

Background Mitochondrial myopathy severely affects skeletal muscle structure and function resulting in defective oxidative phosphorylation. However, the major pathomechanisms and therewith effective treatment approaches remain elusive. Therefore, the aim of the present study was to investigate disease-related impairments in skeletal muscle properties in patients with...

Dysferlinopathy in Switzerland: clinical phenotypes and potential founder effects

Background Dysferlin is reduced in patients with limb girdle muscular dystrophy type 2B, Miyoshi myopathy, distal anterior compartment myopathy, and in certain Ethnic clusters. Methods We evaluated clinical and genetic patient data from three different Swiss Neuromuscular Centers. Results Thirteen patients from 6 non-related families were included. Age of onset was 18.8 ± 4.3...
