As per available reports about 12 relevant Journals, 15 Conferences, 9 National symposiums are presently dedicated exclusively to heterotaxy syndrome and about 55 articles are being published Heterotaxy syndrome.
Cardio-oncology refers to a clinical subspecialty that is focused on understanding, managing, and treating the possible cardiac side effects—known as cardio toxicity—of cancer treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Over the past few years, cardio-oncology clinics have sprung up in major medical centers across the nation to provide integrated and interdisciplinary care to cancer patients with cardiovascular risks. Most cardio-oncologists are cardiologists who have a special interest and often special training in the cardiac effects of cancer treatments.

Scope and importance:
In heterotaxy syndrome, paired organs, such as the lungs or kidneys, are often mirror images of one another instead of having the unique characteristics of right and left that are normally present.There are different forms of heterotaxy syndrome . All usually involve heart defects, of varying type and severity. In addition, organs such as the stomach, intestines, liver and lungs may be in abnormal places in the chest and abdomen.
The intestines may have malrotation, which is when the loops of bowel are lined up incorrectly. With this problem the bowel can twist on itself (volvulus). Many children with malrotation need abdominal surgery to correct it. Some children with heterotaxy syndrome can have a very serious condition of the liver called biliary atresia. This also may require surgical intervention. There may also be irregularities with the skeleton, central nervous system and urinary tract. In some cases of heterotaxy syndrome , the spleen may not work correctly or may be missing entirely. This can cause many problems, because the spleen helps the body fight infections. When the spleen is missing or doesn’t work correctly, patients have a more difficult time recovering from surgeries or infections (patients with heterotaxy may require multiple surgeries). In some cases, there may be a functioning spleen, but it may be divided into several smaller spleens (polysplenia).Sometimes children with heterotaxy syndrome have dextrocardia syndrome. This means the heart is in the right chest instead of the left chest. The exact cause of Heterotaxy is not known, but the symptoms result from the way that the internal organs turn into position during fetal development. This rotation can be affected by many different factors including: infection, genetics, or exposures to certain chemicals. There are a few reports of families having several members with Heterotaxy, but the exact cause has not been identified yet.
Making the diagnosis of Heterotaxy syndrome involves an ultrasound of the heart (echocardiogram) that will allow a pediatric cardiologist to best see the structures of your child's heart. An (EKG) electrocardiogram is usually done to ensure there are no heart rhythm problems. An x-ray can help to evaluate the heart size and look for what side the abdominal organs and heart are on. The intestines can also be twisted incorrectly and an upper gastrointestinal series should be done to look for this. A liver-spleen scan should also be done to check for a functioning spleen. Finally, a cardiac catheterization procedure may be needed for a more detailed view of the child's heart structures in preparation for corrective surgery.
Collectively, there are approximately 30 million people living with a rare disease in the US and another 3.5 million in the UK. In the PSP group, 12 (13%) patients were elected for termination of pregnancy, 5 (6%) had fetal death (4 with bradyarrhythmia), and 76 of 81 (94%) continued pregnancies were live born. The Global cardiac biomarker market is segmented based on type, application, location of testing and geography. Based on cardiac biomarker type, the market is segmented into Creatine Kinase (CK-MB), Troponins T and I, myoglobin, BNPs, IMA and others. Troponins I and T are the highest revenue-generating segment in the overall cardiac biomarker market due to its prodigious specificity and its ability to accurately detect the cardiac events of Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS).
