Mi-Jin Jung
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2004;47(6):665-671.   Published online June 15, 2004
Purpose : The purpose of this investigation was to identify the impaired myocardial function and improvement with immune globulin in Kawasaki disease. Methods : The myocardial performance and diastolic function were evaluated in 52 patients. M-mode and Doppler echocardiography were performed before(pre) and after immune globulin treatment : two to nine days(pre), five to 15 days(period one), 14 to 35...
