Can clinical assessment detect 22q11.2 deletions in patients with cardiac malformations? A review

Research output: Contribution to journal/Conference contribution in journal/Contribution to newspaperJournal articleResearchpeer-review

No consensus exists regarding the ability to detect the 22q11 deletion syndrome based on clinical assessment. Traditionally, diagnosis depends on clinical referral. Thus, individuals with typical manifestations are easily identified, but when manifestations are atypical or subclinical, diagnosis may be delayed or even missed. The aim of the present literature review was to evaluate the validity of clinical assessment as a method of predicting 22q11.2 deletions in individuals with congenital cardiac malformations.
