  • The Genetic Architecture of Chronic Mountain Sickness in Peru. [Journal Article]
    Front Genet 2019; 10:690Gazal S, Espinoza JR, … Gouya L
  • Chronic mountain sickness (CMS) is a pathological condition resulting from chronic exposure to high-altitude hypoxia. While its prevalence is high in native Andeans (>10%), little is known about the genetic architecture of this disease. Here, we performed the largest genome-wide association study (GWAS) of CMS (166 CMS patients and 146 controls living at 4,380 m in Peru) to detect genetic variant…
  • Swiss Mountain Guides: Medical Education, Knowledge, and Practice. [Journal Article]
    High Alt Med Biol 2019Métrailler P, Greiser J, … Sartori C
  • CONCLUSIONS: Swiss mountain guides' education in altitude medicine may be improved, in particular concerning the recognition and treatment of severe conditions such as HAPE and HACE. Better knowledge may be especially important for HA-guides. These data have induced experts in the field to adapt the guides teaching curriculum and medical kit.
  • Going to Altitude with a Preexisting Psychiatric Condition. [Journal Article]
    High Alt Med Biol 2019Hüfner K, Sperner-Unterweger B, Brugger H
  • Psychiatric disorders have a high lifetime prevalence affecting about 30% of the global population. Not much is known about high altitude (HA) sojourns in individuals living with a psychiatric condition. This lack of scientific evidence contrasts with the anticipated increase in numbers of individuals with preexisting psychiatric conditions seeking medical advice on HA exposure. Not only are ther…
  • Pediatric High Altitude Cerebral Edema in the Nepal Himalayas. [Journal Article]
    Wilderness Environ Med 2019Church BJ, Basnyat B, … Zafren K
  • High altitude cerebral edema (HACE) is a rare complication of ascent to altitudes of over 2500 m (8200 ft). We are not aware of a previously published case report of HACE in a patient under the age of 18 y. We report on 2 cases of suspected HACE in 2 patients, aged 12 and 16 y, who presented to the Manang Himalayan Rescue Association clinic at 3500 m. The 16-y-old patient presented with severe he…
