Sung Min Choi, Sang Bum Lee, Doo Hong Ahn, Yong Joo Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1991;34(3):311-316.   Published online March 31, 1991
Congenital pulmonary valvular stenosis was relieved by percutaneous balloon valvuloplasty during cardiac catheterization on 8 children aged 14 months to 8 years. Before dilatation, the transpulmonary systolic pressure gradients ranged from 33 mmHg to 79 mmHg (Mean:52.00 ± 18.16 mmHg). There were significant reduction in the transpulmonic systolic pressure gradients immediate after balloon dilatation (Mean:17.38±11.16mmHg). In follow up 4 patients, this decreased pressure gradients have...
Serum ionized Ca measured with new ion-selected electrode and Q-oTc interval in newborn infants.
Beom Joo Kim, Chang Hee Han, Heng Mi Kim, Doo Hong Ahn
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1991;34(3):303-310.   Published online March 31, 1991
The reliability of electrocardiographic detection of serum ionized Ca level was studied in 13 preterm and 32 full term infants. The concentration of ionized Ca was measured with a new ion-selected electrode, NOVA SP4 (NOVA Biomedical, Waltham, MA USA). The Q-oTc interval correlated with total Ca (r=o.553, p<0.01) and ionized Ca (r= -0.435, p< 0.01) but the Q-Tc interval did not correlate with total and...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 1990;33(7):915-922.   Published online July 31, 1990
A clinical trial was conducted to determine the effect of low-dosage recombinant a-interferon therapy in children with HBs Ag and HBe Ag positive chronic active hepatitis. Studied patients consist of 7 biopsy-proven children (aged 6.5-11.5 yr). After 16 weeks of therapy, following results were obtained. Out of 7 HBe Ag positive cases, 5 cases (71.4%) were converted to HBe Ag negative state. One of two...

Ki Ho Kim, Kun Soo Lee, Haeng Mi Kim, Doo Hong Ahn
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1990;33(1):81-87.   Published online January 31, 1990
The following results were obtained from eight cases of hereditary spherocytosis (HS) who were admitted at the Department of Pediatrics, Kyung-pook National University Hospital from July 1984 to January 1989. The percentage of HS among the pediatric hematology patients during the same period was 2.6%. Male amd female were one and seven respectively. The mean age at the diagnosis and at onset of symptom was...
Blood Level of Phenobarbital in Treatment of Seizure After Neonatal Asphyxia.
Ji Yean Lee, Heng Mi Kim, Doo Hong Ahn
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1989;32(9):1265-1272.   Published online September 30, 1989
In this study, we attempted to determine an optimal first dose of phenobarbital for the treatment of seizures in the asphyxiated full term neonates. Blood samples were obtained 2 to 48 hours after the administration of final effective loading dose and plasma levels were determined by the EMIT system. Four groups of neonates were studied. Six neonates (Group 1) received an intravenous loading dose of...
Noninvasive Estimation of Pulmonary Artery Pressure with Doppler Echocardiogrphy.
Ji Yean Lee, Soon Hak Kwon, Sang Bum Lee, Doo Hong Ahn
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1989;32(1):20-26.   Published online January 31, 1989
This study determined the accuracy of Doppler echocardiography for predicting the pulmonary artery pressure from right ventricular systolic time intervals in 25 pediatric patients with various congenital cardiovascular diseases undergoing cardiac catheterization. Either estimated pulmonary artery systolic pressure (PASP) using Burstin nomogram and pulmo- nary artery diastolic pressure (PADP) using Riggs equation (PADP= 151· RPEP / RVET ·20.7) correlated well with the pressures at...
