Perturbed sympatho-vagal balance in Turner syndrome: relation to phenotype and aortic dilation

Trolle Christian , Mortensen Kristian Havmand , Hjerrild Britta , Andersen Niels Holmark , Gravholt Claus Hojbjerg

Objective: The risk of aortic dissection is 100-fold increased in Turner syndrome (TS). Increased blood pressure (BP) and heart rate is present as well as an increased risk of ischemic heart disease and diabetes. This study aimed to prospectively assess heart rate variability (HRV) in TS and its relation to aortic dimensions.Methods: Adults with TS (n=91, aged 37.4±10.4 years) recruited through the Danish National Society of Turner Syndrome...

Ascending aortic dilatation in Turner syndrome: the natural history

Mortensen Kristian , Hjerrild Britta , Stochholm Kirstine , Andersen Niels , Soerensen Keld , Lundorf Erik , Christiansen Jens , Gravholt Claus

Background: Aortic dissection causes excess mortality in Turner syndrome, and this increased risk is associated with aortic dilation, congenital cardiovascular abnormalities, karyotype, and blood pressure. But risk factor identification is inadequate, and the natural course of aortopathy in Turner syndrome is poorly investigated.Design and methods: Prospective follow-up study in women with Turner syndrome (n=102, examined twice) and healthy age-ma...

Study objective: To study blood pressure (BP) levels and aortic dimensions in women with Turner syndrome (TS).Materials and methods: 102 women with TS (mean age 37.7 years; 18–62 years). 24 hour ambulatory BP measurement and echocardiography was performed on participants.Results: Mean BP systolic (sys) and diastolic (dia) values were (±SD): sysBPday 128.0±15.3; diaBPday 81.6±11.8; sysBPnight 110.4...
