    An imperforate anus or anorectal malformations (ARMs) are birth defects in which the rectum is malformed. ARMs are a spectrum of different congenital anomalies which vary from fairly minor lesions to complex anomalies. The cause of ARMs is unknown; the genetic basis of these anomalies is very complex because of their anatomical lty: Medical genetics.

Epidemiologic Aspect of Congenital Vascular Malformation. Abstract.

Its original concerns, as of epidemiology generally, were “the distribution and determinants of health-related states or events in defined populations” (Last ); which in the context of malformations refers to determining whether and how specific abnormalities may Author: Harold Kalter.

The physiopathological mechanisms of scimitar syndrome are supported by the complex anatomical components of the disease including the abnormal drainage of one or more right pulmonary vein(s), the presence of anomalous aortopulmonary collaterals, and the.

Genetic Epidemiology and Congenital Malformations Article Literature Review in Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine (4) May. The dysmorphology approach to congenital anomalies divides defects into one of three sequences, which are defined as problems that lead to a cascade of events: In a malformation sequence, poor formation of tissue within the fetus initiates the chain of defects, which may range from minimal to severe.

Anorectal Malformations in Children represents an international consensus in understanding and treating anorectal malformations. Interesting new topics include tethered cord, vaginal reconstruction, continent catherizable channels, and the impact on family studies by parents' organizations.

Thus, this study supports us to understand the. There have been amazing advances in embryology, teratology, reproductive biology, genetics, and epidemiology in the past 50 years that have provided scientists and clinicians with a better perspective on the causes of congenital malformations.
