Total Parenteral Nutrition-associated Cholestasis in Premature Infants
Kyung Pil Park, Se Young Kim, Heng Mi Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2003;46(1):17-23.   Published online January 15, 2003
Purpose : Cholestasis is a major complication in prolonged use of TPN, especially in the neonatal period, but there are few long-term reviews examining the clinical course in premature infants. Thus, in this study, we reviewed premature infants with TPN-associated cholestasis(TPNAC) to determine the incidence, clinical courses and possible risk factors.

Usefulness of Serum Prealbumin Concentration as a Marker for Nutritional Adequacy in Premature Infants
Soo Jin Lee, Eun Ae Park, Jeong Wan Seo
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2001;44(8):867-874.   Published online August 15, 2001
Purpose : Serum prealbumin concentration has been proposed as a useful nutritional marker that responds rapidly and sensitively to calory and protein intake. But the reports of prealbumin in premature infants are not sufficient and variable. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the usefulness of serum prealbumin concentration as a marker for nutritional adequacy in premature infants. Methods...

Su Kyeong Oh, Young Hye Jeong, Youn Jee Choi, Soon Ok Byun, Ji Sub Oh
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2001;44(4):460-463.   Published online April 15, 2001
We experienced a case of isolated fetal pleural effusion diagnosed by antenatal ultrasonogram in the 33th week of gestational age. Chest PA at birth showed massive pleural effusion in both lungs. The serous pleural fluid changed to a milky nature after feeding so we diagnosed it as congenital chylothorax. The infant was managed by chest tube drainage, NPO & TPN...

The Study of Transplacental Transfer of Immunoglobulin G in Premature Infants
Sung Soo Moon, Yoon Ki Kang, Soo Chul Cho, Jung Soo Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1998;41(6):747-753.   Published online June 15, 1998
Purpose : Premature infants have low serum immunoglobulin G(IgG) levels because IgG is transplacentally acquired, primarily after 32-34 weeks of gestational age. We studied the transplacental transfer of serum IgG in preterm infants. Methods : The IgG levels in the sera were measured by radial immunodiffusion method(Behring nephelometer, Germany). Results : There was a significant difference between IgG concentration and gestational age; the IgG concentration increased...

Neonatal genital prolapse is very rare and is usually associated with meningomyelocele or other anomalies of the central nervous system. Synonyms of genital prolapse are sacropubic hernia, pelvic relaxation, and pelvic organ prolapse. There are two types of genital prolapse including vaginal prolapse and uterovaginal prolapse. We experienced a case of uterovaginal prolapse in a 30 day-old premature infant, which...

Dug Ha Kim, Jung Hwan Choi, Chong Ku Yun
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1991;34(10):1381-1390.   Published online October 31, 1991
Patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) is a common disease that occurred in 20 〜 40 percent of premature infants. The incidence of PDA is inversely related to the gestational age and birth weight. Hemodynamically significant PDA increases the morbidity and mortality of premature infants. So, the management of PDA is one of the major problems in neonatal intensive care unit. Based on experimental animal studies,...

Eun Ae Park, Gyoung Hee Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1991;34(9):1286-1293.   Published online September 30, 1991
Systemic infection with Candida albicans in very premature infants is frequently fatal or associated with significant morbidity in survivors. Several common practices in newborn intensive care units, such as insertion of indwelling catheters, provision of parenteral nutrition, and prolonged administra- tion of broad-spectrum antibiotics or aminophylline, are associated with an increased risk of systemic disease. We have experienced a case of systemic candidiasis in 1/365...
