Cardiac function associated with home ventilator care in Duchenne muscular dystrophy
Sangheun Lee, Heeyoung Lee, Lucy Youngmin Eun, Seung Woong Gang
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2018;61(2):59-63.   Published online February 28, 2018
Purpose

Cardiomyopathy is becoming the leading cause of death in patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy because mechanically assisted lung ventilation and assisted coughing have helped resolve respiratory complications. To clarify cardiopulmonary function, we compared cardiac function between the home ventilator-assisted and non-ventilator-assisted groups.

Methods

We retrospectively reviewed patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy from January 2010 to March 2016 at Gangnam Severance Hospital. Demographic...

The evolution of electrocardiographic changes in patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophies
Woo Hyun Yoo, Min-Jung Cho, Peter Chun, Kwang Hun Kim, Je Sang Lee, Yong Beom Shin
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2017;60(6):196-201.   Published online June 22, 2017
Purpose

Myocardial dysfunction and dysrhythmias are inevitable consequences of Duchenne muscular dystrophy. We aimed to evaluate specific trends of electrocardiographic changes that reflect the progress of cardiomyopathy in patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

Methods

Fifty electrocardiograms (ECGs) of 30 patients (ages 1 to 27 years) who had not been prescribed medications for heart failure treatment at the time of examination were retrospectively analyzed...

Myocardial atrophy in children with mitochondrial disease and Duchenne muscular dystrophy
Tae Ho Lee, Lucy Youngmin Eun, Jae Young Choi, Hye Eun Kwon, Young-Mock Lee, Heung Dong Kim, Seong-Woong Kang
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2014;57(5):232-239.   Published online May 31, 2014
Purpose

Mitochondrial disease (MD) and Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) are often associated with cardiomyopathy, but the myocardial variability has not been isolated to a specific characteristic. We evaluated the left ventricular (LV) mass by echocardiography to identify the general distribution and functional changes of the myocardium in patients with MD or DMD.

Methods

We retrospectively evaluated the echocardiographic data of 90 children with...

A Case of Xp21 Contiguous Gene Deletion Syndrome with Hyperglycerolemia, Congenital Adrenal Hypoplasia and Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy
Dae-Won Shin, Jun Huh, Hong-Jin Lee, Won-Ill Park, Kyung-Ja Lee, Yoon-Sook Shin, D.R. Sjarif, B.T. Poll-The
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2001;44(1):83-88.   Published online January 15, 2001
On Xp21 region several genes such as adrenal hypoplasia congenita(AHC) gene, glycerol kinase (GK) gene and Duchenne muscular dystrophy(DMD) gene are located contiguously. If there is a long deletion in that region, various combination of genetic defect can be occurred from one kind of genetic defect to all three kinds of genetic defect simultaneously. In case of more than two...
A Clinical Study on Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy
Moon Sun Yang, Su Ahn Chae, Ki Joong Kim, Yong Seung Hwang
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1992;35(5):652-658.   Published online May 15, 1992
Twenty-five cases of Duchenne muscular dystrophy(DMD) who were diagnosed in the department of pediatrics, Seoul national university hospital (from Jan. 1985 to June 1991) were reviewed. The results were as follows. 1) All of the patients were male. 2) The onset of symptoms was between two and eight years of age. The peak incidence was at four years of age. 3) Chief complaints...
A Clinical Study on Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy in Childhood.
Chung Il Noh, Yong Seung Hwang
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1985;28(6):581-586.   Published online June 30, 1985
Twenty-six cases of Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) who were diagnosed in the Department of Pediatrics, Seoul National University Hospital from Jan. 1976 till Jan. 1985 were reviewed. The onset of symptoms was between two and eleven years of age. The peak incidence was at 3 years of age. Both extremities were involved in 14 cases. The degree of involvement was...
