Bronchopulmonary dysplasia: how can we improve its outcomes?
Tae-Jung Sung
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2019;62(10):367-373.   Published online May 17, 2019
Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) is a chronic lung disease of preterm infants with multiple factors affected from prenatal to postnatal periods. Despite significant advances in neonatal care over almost 50 years, BPD rates have not decreased; in fact, they may have even increased. Since more preterm infants, even at periviable gestational age, survive today, different stages of lung development affect the...

Ureaplasma infections in pre-term infants: Recent information regarding the role of Ureaplasma species as neonatal pathogens
Tae-Jung Sung
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2010;53(12):989-993.   Published online December 31, 2010

Although numerous clinical observational studies have been conducted over a period of over 30 years, the clinical significance of Ureaplasma infection is still under debate. The Ureaplasma speices. is a commensal in the female genital tract and considered to have of low virulence; however, Ureaplasma colonization has been associated with infertility, stillbirth, preterm delivery, histologic chorioamnionitis, and neonatal morbidities, including...

Association of ionized magnesium, total magnesium, gestational age, and intraventricular hemorrhage in preterm babies
Tae-Yeon Kim, Hyun-Hee Lee, Tae-Jung Sung
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2009;52(10):1140-1146.   Published online October 15, 2009
Purpose : The pathophysiology of magnesium, the second highest common compound in humans, is still unclear, especially in preterm babies. We accessed the association between total magnesium (tMg), ionized Mg (iMg), and gestational age (GA) and that between serum magnesium (sMg) and intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH) in preterm babies. Methods : In all, 119 inborn preterm infants admitted between July 2006...
Changes in the outcomes of neonatal intensive care unit at a single center over 12 years
Hyun-Hee Lee, Tae-Yeon Kim, Seon-Hee Shin, Tae-Jung Sung
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2009;52(8):881-887.   Published online August 15, 2009

Purpose:The survival rate of very low birth weight infant (VLBWI) had increased as a result of advances in neonatal intensive care. We evaluated the changes in outcomes of VLBWI who admitted to the neonatal care unit of Hallym University Kangnam Sacred Heart Hospital. Methods:Retrospective review of 339 VLBWI who were born from 1st January 1997 to 31th December 2008 were performed. Outcomes including survival...
Case Report
Small bowel obstruction caused by an anomalous congenital band in an infant
Tae-Jung Sung, Ji-Woong Cho
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2008;51(2):219-221.   Published online February 15, 2008
Intestinal obstruction is not uncommon in infants. The common causes of intestinal obstruction in the neonatal period are Hirschsprung disease, intestinal atresia, meconium ileus, and intussusception. However, small bowel obstruction caused by a congenital band is very rare. We report a 27-day-old baby who was admitted with abdominal distension and fever. The abdominal X-ray revealed massive bowel dilatation and the...
