Kyung Jin Ahn, Ja Kyoung Yoon, Gi Beom Kim, Bo Sang Kwon, Jung Min Go, Jin Su Moon, Eun Jung Bae, Chung Il Noh
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2015;58(10):392-397.   Published online October 21, 2015
Purpose

Alagille syndrome is a complex hereditary disorder that is associated with cardiac, hepatic, skeletal, ocular, and facial abnormalities. Mutations in the Notch signaling pathway, such as in JAG1 and NOTCH2, play a key role in embryonic development. A cardiac or hepatic presentation is a critical factor for determining the prognosis.

Methods

We conducted a retrospective study of 41 patients with Alagille syndrome...

Cardiovascular risk factors of early atherosclerosis in school-aged children after Kawasaki disease
Hyun Jeong Cho, Soo In Yang, Kyung Hee Kim, Jee Na Kim, Hong Ryang Kil
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2014;57(5):217-221.   Published online May 31, 2014
Purpose

The aim of this study was to determine whether school-aged children with Kawasaki disease (KD) have an increased risk for early atherosclerosis.

Methods

The study included 98 children. The children were divided into the following groups: group A (n=19), KD with coronary arterial lesions that persisted or regressed; group B (n=49), KD without coronary arterial lesions; and group C (n=30), healthy children....

Pulse wave velocity and ankle brachial index in obese adolescents
Ji Hye Kim, Hee Sun Koo, Young Mi Hong
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2007;50(11):1078-1084.   Published online November 15, 2007
Purpose : The prevalence of childhood obesity has doubled over the last 30 years. Obesity-associated sequelae in the vasculature begins in the early stages of life. The purpose of this study was to investigate how pulse wave velocity (PWV) and ankle brachial index (ABI) change with height, weight and body mass index (BMI) in obese adolescents. Methods : Seventy-nine obese...

Ja-Hyeong Kim, So-Yeon Lee, Hyo-Bin Kim, So-Eun Koo, Sung-Jong Park, Young-Hui Kim, In-Suk Park, Jae-Kon Ko, Dong-Man Seo, Soo-Jong Hong
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2005;48(7):737-744.   Published online July 15, 2005
Purpose : Infants and children with cardiovascular diseases often present with respiratory symptoms. However, missed or delayed evaluation for potential airway problem may complicate overall prognosis. The aim of this study is to determine the clinical characteristics of these patients and explore the cause of airway problem. Methods : We reviewed the medical records of 64 patients(M : F=33:31, mean...
Diagnostic Method of Congenital Cardiovascular Diseases Using Spiral Computed Tomography and Three Dimensional Reconstruction
Hye Kyung Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1998;41(10):1389-1396.   Published online October 15, 1998
Purpose : One of the new methods for diagnosing congenital cardiovascular diseases is the spiral CT and three-dimensional image reconstruction. The spiral CT allows continuous data collection while the subject is advanced through the CT gantry, it provides an uninterrupted volume of data that can be reconstructed to produce a three-dimensional representation of CT information and also this method has...
