Purpose : This study investigated the clinical course and prognostic factor of very low birth weight infants (VLBWI) with hemodynamically significant congenital heart defects (CHDs). Methods : Medical records of 1,098 VLBWI with birth weight <1,500 g who had been admitted to the neonatal intensive care unit of Samsung Medical Center from October 1994 to December 2007 were reviewed retrospectively. The...
Changes in the Outcomes of Very Low Birth Weight Infants
Shung Shin Kim, Moon Hee Kim, Jae Won Shin, Sun Young Ko, Eun Kyung Lee, Yun Sil Chang, I Seok Kang, Won Soon Park, Mun Hyang Lee, Sang Il Lee, Heung Jae Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2002;45(7):828-835.   Published online July 15, 2002
Purpose : The outcomes of infants weighing less than 1,500 gm(very low birth weight infant : VLBWI) reflect recent progress in neonatal intensive care. In this study, we analyzed changes over time in survival rate and morbidity of VLBWIs during the past seven years. Methods : A retrospective review of medical records was analyzed for VLBWIs admitted to the neonatal intensive...
Ten Cases of Severe Adenoviral Pneumonia in the Spring 1995
Jeong Hee Kim, Sang Il Lee, Mun Hyang Lee, I Seok Kang, Heung Jae Lee, Bo Kyung Kim, Yeon-Lim Suh
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1996;39(9):1247-1253.   Published online September 15, 1996
Purpose : In the Spring 1995, there was an outbreak of adenoviral infection, which caused four death out of ten patients with adenoviral pneumonia in our hospital. Clinical courses of ten patients with severe pneumonia were similar each other, and two were confirmed as adenoviral pneumonia by postmortem autopsy. Although not proven, we believe eight patients had adenoviral pneumonia. Therefore, we report clinical features...
Atrial Flutter Conversion in Infants and Children Using Transesophageal Atrial Pacing
Jae Kon Ko, Seoug Ho Kim, Eun Jung Bae, I Seok Kang, Heung Jae Lee
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1994;37(7):969-975.   Published online July 15, 1994
Atrial flutter is an infrequent, but potentially unstable tachyarrythmia that occurs in pediatric ages. Transesophageal atrial pacing was used for treatment of 10 episodes of atrial flutter in 7 patients. At the time of atrial flutter conversion, patients were 6 days to 14 years old. 6 patients had associated with congenital heart disease. The atrial cycle length of atrial flutter ranged from...
Quantitative Assessment of the Diameters of Tricuspid Valve, Mitral Valve and Great Arteries in the Normal Human Fetus -Cross Sectional Echocardiographic Study-
Jung Yun Choi, Kyung Hee Park, Chung Il Noh, Yong Soo Yun, I Seok Kang, Eun Sook Han
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1992;35(11):1566-1572.   Published online November 15, 1992
In order to assess the growth of the mitral valve, tricuspid valve, and the aortic and pulmonary pathways in the normal human fetus, 181 fetal echocardiograms taken from 127 pregnant women (some women had repeated examinations) were analysed. Diameters were measured from cross sectional images and were correlated with gestational period. The diameter ratios of tricuspid valve/mitral valve, aorta/main pulmonary artery,...
Dimension of Normal Coronary Arteries Determined by Cross-Sectional Echocardiograph
Jung Yun Choi, Yong Soo Yun, Chung Il Noh, Jong Un Choi, I Seok Kang
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1992;35(10):1336-1342.   Published online October 15, 1992
In order to determine the normal values of coronary arterial dimensions in children, eighty eight children without any cardiovascular diseases were studied with cross-sectional echocardiography. Age ranged from 1 day to 15 years. Four sites (proximal right coronary artery, left main, left anterior descending, and left circumflex coronary artery) were selected to measure the dimensions. The right coronary artery was measured...
The Comparison of Coronary Arterial Dimensions Measured by Cross-sectional Echocardiography with Values Obtained by Coronary Angiography in Kawasaki Disease
Mi Jin Jung, Jung Yun Choi, Shung Il Noh, Yong Soo Yun, I Seok Kang
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1992;35(8):1102-1106.   Published online August 15, 1992
In order to assess accuracy of cross-sectional echocardiographic measurements of coronary arterial dimension, measured values of coronary arterial dimensions by cross-sectional echocardiography were compared with the angiographic results. Twenty eight patients with Kawasaki diseas (male: female= 3:1, age range, 7 months-8 years) were studied by both coronary arteriography and crossleft anterior descending coronary artery, and left circumflex coronary artery) were...
Permanent Epicardial Pacing in Pediatric Patients

Clin Exp Pediatr. 1992;35(7):933-941.   Published online July 15, 1992
From September 1982 to July 1991, 40 infants and children aged 3 days to 13 years(mean 3.1 years) underwent implantation of 45 cardiac pacemakers using epicardial leads(40 primary implants, 5 re-implants). Nineteen patients required pacing for surgically acquired heart block, 1 for surgically acquired sinus node dysfunction, 11 for congenital complete atrio-ventricular(AV) block, 7 for nonsurgical sinus node dysfunction, and...
Cytomegalovirus Infection in Children: The Significance of CMV Specific IgM Antibody Test and Virus Isolation in the Urine
Dong Wook Kim, Hyun Kwack, Seong Hee Jang, I Seok Kang, Hoan Jong Lee, Jung-Hwan Choi, Jeong Kee Seo, Chong Ku Yun
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1992;35(7):890-901.   Published online July 15, 1992
The clinical pictures of 44 children with IgM antibody to CMV (cytomegalovirus) by ELISA(enzyme linked immunosorbent assay) were reviewed retrospectively, and the significance of serum CMV specific IgM antibody and virus isolation in the urine was analyzed. Age of the patients with IgM antibody to CMV ranged from 23 days to 8 years 7 months, and median age was 2 months....
Color Doppler Echocardiographic Evaluation of Residual Ductal Flow After Surgical Ligation
I Seok Kang, Hyun Kwack, Chung Il Noh, Jung Yun Choi, Yong Soo Yun
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1992;35(5):602-606.   Published online May 15, 1992
We evaluated the incidence of residual ductal flow with color Doppler echocardiography and associated clinical findings in 63 patients who had undergone surgical ligation for isolated PDA, The interval between surgery and color Doppler echocardiographic evaluation ranged from 2 days to6.6 years(mean 7 months). In 40 patients, color Doppler echocardiographic studies were done within 1month after surgery. In 8 of...
