Summary of "Diagnosis and treatment of congenital myopaties."

Important advances have been made in the field of congenital myopathies in recent years, forcing clinicians to constantly review and update this group of diseases. The increasing identification of new genes and phenotypes associated with already known genes has been possible to a great extent thanks to the development accomplished in next generation sequencing techniques, which are increasingly accessible. Knowing better the phenotypic spectrum of these entities allows to establish a phenotype/genotype correlation in some subgroups. The best understanding of the pathophysiology and natural history of these diseases are fundamental to design new therapies. The first clinical trials in the field of gene therapy are already a reality and are showing positive results, creating a new expectation for patients, families and specialists, which will be reflected in the need to adapt the protocols of care, diagnosis and treatment of some of these entities. It is essential that pediatric neurologists, pediatricians, physiotherapists and other professionals involved in the care of these patients are informed and updated on the advances in this group of diseases.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Methods to determine in patients the nature of a disease or disorder at its early stage of progression. Generally, early diagnosis improves PROGNOSIS and TREATMENT OUTCOME.

A system for classifying patient care by relating common characteristics such as diagnosis, treatment, and age to an expected consumption of hospital resources and length of stay. Its purpose is to provide a framework for specifying case mix and to reduce hospital costs and reimbursements and it forms the cornerstone of the prospective payment system.
