Clin Exp Pediatr. 2017;60(11):373-378.   Published online November 27, 2017
Purpose

The aim of this study was to investigate the statistical properties of four previously developed pediatric coronary artery z score models in healthy Korean children.

Methods

The study subjects were 181 healthy Korean children, whose age ranged from 1 month to 15 years. The diameter of each coronary artery was measured using 2-dimensional echocardiography and converted to the z score in the...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 2016;59(10):408-413.   Published online October 17, 2016
Purpose

This study investigated predictors of unresponsiveness to second-line intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) treatment for Kawasaki disease (KD).

Methods

This was a single-center analysis of the medical records of 588 patients with KD who had been admitted to Asan Medical Center between 2006 and 2014. Related clinical and laboratory data were analyzed by univariate and multivariate logistic regression analyses.

Results

Eighty (13.6%) of the 588 patients...

Diagnostic characteristics of supplemental laboratory criteria for incomplete Kawasaki disease in children with complete Kawasaki disease
Hyun Ok Jun, Jeong Jin Yu, So Yeon Kang, Chang Deok Seo, Jae Suk Baek, Young-Hwue Kim, Jae-Kon Ko
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2015;58(10):369-373.   Published online October 21, 2015
Purpose

In 2004, the American Heart Association (AHA) had published an algorithm for the diagnosis of incomplete Kawasaki disease (KD). The aim of the present study was to investigate characteristics of supplemental laboratory criteria in this algorithm.

Methods

We retrospectively examined the medical records of 355 patients with KD who were treated with intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) during the acute phase of the disease....

Detection rate and clinical impact of respiratory viruses in children with Kawasaki disease
Ja Hye Kim, Jeong Jin Yu, Jina Lee, Mi-Na Kim, Hong Ki Ko, Hyung Soon Choi, Young-Hwue Kim, Jae-Kon Ko
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2012;55(12):470-473.   Published online December 20, 2012
Purpose

The purpose of this prospective case-control study was to survey the detection rate of respiratory viruses in children with Kawasaki disease (KD) by using multiplex reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR), and to investigate the clinical implications of the prevalence of respiratory viruses during the acute phase of KD.

Methods

RT-PCR assays were carried out to screen for the presence of respiratory syncytial...

Pulmonary hypertension due to obstructive sleep apnea in a child with Rubinstein-Taybi syndrome
Hyung Soon Choi, Jeong Jin Yu, Young-Hwue Kim, Jae-Kon Ko, In-Sook Park
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2012;55(6):212-214.   Published online June 21, 2012

Rubinstein-Taybi syndrome (RTS) is characterized by peculiar facies, mental retardation, broad thumbs, and great toes. Approximately one-third of the affected individuals have a variety of congenital heart diseases. They can also have upper airway obstruction during sleep, due to hypotonia and the anatomy of the oropharynx and airway, which make these patients susceptible to obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). In our...

Log-transformed plasma level of brain natriuretic peptide during the acute phase of Kawasaki disease is quantitatively associated with myocardial dysfunction
Sunhee Bang, Jeong Jin Yu, Myung-Ki Han, Hong Ki Ko, Sail Chun, Hyung Soon Choi, Young-Hwue Kim, Jae-Kon Ko, In-Sook Park
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2011;54(8):340-344.   Published online August 31, 2011
Purpose

Brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) has been considered a biochemical marker for myocarditis in Kawasaki disease. We performed this study to determine its quantitative significance.

Methods

We attempted to correlate log-transformed BNP concentrations (log-BNP) and clinical, laboratory, and echocardiographic variables in 81 children with Kawasaki disease. Stepwise multiple linear regression analysis was used to determine the variables independently associated with log-BNP concentration.

Results

Serum C-reactive...

Case Report
The Management of Three Infants with Critical Valvular Aortic Stenosis by Transcarotid Balloon Aortic Balvuloplasty
Kie-Young Park, Young-Hwue Kim, Ji-Yeon Min, Jae-Kon Ko, In-Sook Park, Chang-Yee Hong, Tae-Jin Yun, Dong-Man Seo
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2000;43(6):820-827.   Published online June 15, 2000
Critical valvular aortic stenosis(AS) is a life threatening congenital heart anomaly in neonates or infants. The main cause of death is rapidly progressing left ventricular failure. The treatment goal of critical AS is to save left ventricular function early. Before the 1980s, the preferred treatment was surgical valvotomy, however, that operative method had a high mortality rate and risk of...

Developmental Morphology of the Atrial Venous Component in the iv/iv Mouse
Young-Hwue Kim, Yong-Soo Yun, Jeong-Wook Seo
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1998;41(7):931-940.   Published online July 15, 1998
Purpose : Developmental processes of atria in embryos or fetuses of the iv/iv mouse were studied to find the differences between right and left atrial chambers and to identify the characteristics of atrial isomerism in the abnormal laterality syndrome. Methods : Seventy-three embryos from SI/Col iv/iv mice(Jackson's laboratory, USA) or fetuses at the 10th-13th day were used. They were examined using...
Total Anomalous Pulmonary Venous Connection : The Results of 23 Consecutive Patients
Young-Hwue Kim, Jae-Kon Ko, In-Sook Park, Tae-Jin Yun, Dong-Man Seo, Chang-Yee Hong
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1998;41(3):346-353.   Published online March 15, 1998
Purpose : Surgical risk of total anomalous pulmonary venous connection(TAPVC) is high, especially in patients with early presentation resulting from pulmonary venous obstruction or with advanced pulmonary vascular obstructive disease(PVOD). We reviewed our experience of primary correction of TAPVC and examined the surgical outcome and risk factors. Methods : From June 1991 to Sept. 1996, 23 neonates or infants who were...
Unusual Presentation of Kawasaki Disease Complicated by Coronary Aneurysms
Young-Ah Lee, In-Sook Park, Young-Hwue Kim, Hyung-Nam Moon, Chang-Yee Hong
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1994;37(7):890-899.   Published online July 15, 1994
Patients with atypical or incomplete Kawasaki disease are at same risk for development of coronary artery complications as typical Kawasaki disease. In this communication we report six patients with unusual presentation of Kawasaki disease complicated by coronary artery aneurysms, in whom correct diagnosis were not made in time for proper treatment. One of these patients died from massive myocardial ischemia...
Comparative Value of Cardiac MRI and Echocardiography in the Assessment of Congenital Heart Lesions
Young-Hwue Kim, #NAME? Park, Chang-Yee Hong, Shi-Joon Yoo, Tae-Hwan Lim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1993;36(10):1343-1350.   Published online October 15, 1993
To examine the usefulness of cardiac MRI in assessing patients (pt) with congenital heart diseases (CHD), informations obtained from MRI and echocardiogrphy (echo) were compared in 91 consecutive pt with CHD and was correlated with findings at cardiac catheterization(53pt) and at surgery (71pt). Pt were studied with 1.5Tesla MRI unit and multiplanar images of the heart and great vessels were...
