The two most common syndromes under this "umbrella" are: Leopard syndrome (LS) and Noonan syndrome (NS).
Other members are Costello syndrome (CS), cardio-facio-cutaneous syndrome (CFC) and Neurofibromatosis type I (NF1). Recently, it has been observed that NCFC syndromes result from de novo germline mutations that alter the Ras/Raf/Mek signal transduction pathway. These are called RASopathies.
1 percent of autistic children have either a loss or duplication in a region of Chromosome 16 that encompasses the gene for ERK 1. Mutations within the ERK signal transduction pathway appears to be a common cause for NCFC syndromes. Some autistic children also have craniofacial and cardiac defects.
After the opening of the Portal de Usme in early 2001, the Autopista Norte line was opened. This station was added as a northerly expansion of that line, which was completed with the opening of the Portal del Norte later that year.
The station is named Cardio Infantil due to its proximity to the Hospital Cardio Infantil, located in Usaqun.

EACTS was founded as a European organisation. However, its membership is now spread all over the world in all continents representing some 70 countries. Since its foundation in 1986 more than 2000 members have been admitted, and the interest in applying for membership has grown considerably during the last few years.
The EACTS Annual Meeting is the largest cardio-thoracic meeting in the world focusing on scientific developments and research in the following specialities: Acquired Cardiac Disease, Congenital Heart Disease, Vascular Disease and Thoracic Disease.
