Abstract

Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT), also called Osler-Weber-Rendu syndrome, is an autosomal dominant genetic disease that affects the vasculature of numerous organs. The prevalence of HHT is estimated to be between 1.5 and 2 persons per 10,000. While there is still much to learn about this condition, there is an increasing understanding its underlying pathophysiology, genetic basis, presentations, and management. Recognizing that the clinical manifestations of HHT can involve a number of organ systems will provide clinicians with a higher index of suspicion for the disease. This early diagnosis and genotyping can greatly reduce mortality for a patient with HHT through appropriate screening for complications. This review will focus on the gastrointestinal manifestations of HHT and how these can dictate treatment and prognosis.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 25 August 2017.
All research outputs
#10,336,854
of 11,655,615 outputs
Outputs from Digestive Diseases & Sciences
#1,934
of 2,271 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#222,196
of 263,067 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Digestive Diseases & Sciences
#30
of 38 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 11,655,615 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 2,271 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.3. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 263,067 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 38 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
