  1. Survival of children with down syndrome in Italy.

    Article - En anglais

    A cohort of 917 Down syndrome (DS) children born in Italy between 1978 and 1984 was studied for survival through the age of 8 years.

    The highest mortality occurred in the first month of life (7.9%); survival was about 80% at 1 year, 78% at 2 years, and 76% at 5 years, with small decreases thereafter.

    At the univariate analysis, survival was lower for subjects with congenital heart disease (CHD), birth weight <2,500 g, parity of 3 or plus, maternal age >=35 years, and for those born in Southern Italy compared with Northern Italy.
