Ju Young Jang, Hyo-Bin Kim, So Yeon Lee, Ja Hyung Kim, Seong Jong Park, Ji Hoon Shin, Soo-Jong Hong
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2005;48(5):512-517.   Published online May 15, 2005
Purpose : In adults, endoscopic tracheobronchial balloon dilatation and stenting have become valuable methods to establish and maintain an adequate airway lumen when tracheomalacia or neoplastic growth compromise the airways. But in children, only a few cases were reported due to technical problems. We report six children who were treated with stent implantation and describe the use and safety of...
Clinical Study of Children Using Home Mechanical Ventilation
Young Joon Ahn, Seung Hyeon Lee, Hyo-Bin Kim, Seong Jong Park, Tae Sung Ko, Soo-Jong Hong
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2005;48(4):401-405.   Published online April 15, 2005
Purpose : The use of mechanically-assisted ventilators at home reduces morbidity and improves the quality of life in children with chronic respiratory failure. But in Korea there is no clinical data of children with home mechanical ventilation. We investigated ventilator types, duration, the causes of failure or death, and the cost needed for care. Methods : We retrospectively analyzed the medical...
