A Case of Disseminated Lymphangiomatosis Involving Mediastinum, Bone, Spleen and Retroperitoneum in an Asymptomatic Healthy Child
Kyung Hee Yoon, Seung Ju Ha, In Sook Park, Hyun Woo Goo, Jong Hyun Yoon
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2001;44(11):1326-1329.   Published online November 15, 2001
Lymphangiomatosis, a benign tumor consisting of a cluster of dilated lymphatic channels, is very unusual. Most lymphangiomatoses are found in the neck and head area. Less than 5% are diagnosed intraabdominally and they are very infrequently encountered in the retroperitoneal area. Herein, we report a rare case of asymptomatic lymphangiomatosis of a 13 year-old boy during a routine chest...

QT Dispersion after Chemotherapy with Anthracyclines in Children
Jae Kon Ko, Young Hwee Kim, In Sook Park, Jong Jin Seo, Hyung Nam Moon
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2001;44(8):908-915.   Published online August 15, 2001
Purpose : Anthracycline induced cardiotoxicity is well known and its pathology is characterized by localized myocardial cell necrosis and myocardial fibrosis. The variability in QT interval duration amongst the different leads of the standard 12-lead ECG(QT dispersion) is considered to reflect inhomogenous repolarization of the myocardium. The aim of this study was to assess the effects of anthracycline on cardiac...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 1999;42(11):1535-1541.   Published online November 15, 1999
Purpose : Histologic studies have revealed ectopic location and hypoplasia of sinus nodal tissue in left atrial isomerism. The purpose of this study is to characterize the atrial rhythms corresponding to these histologic abnormalities in left atrial isomerism. Electrocardiograms in left atrial isomerism are characterized by multiple atrial rhythms with abnormal P-wave axes, but the complex nature of atrial rhythms...

Four Cases of Pulmonary Artery Sling with Bridging Bronchus
Seung A Lee, Jung Yeon Shim, Young Hwue Kim, Jae Kon Ko, In Sook Park, Soo-Jong Hong, Chang Yee Hong
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1997;40(5):709-715.   Published online May 15, 1997
Pulmonary artery sling with bridging bronchus is not only rare but also difficult to diagnose unless specially sought. When young infant suffers from prolonged or recurrent wheezing, possibility of underlying anomalies of the tracheobronchial trees or great vessels should be considered, even though bronchiolitis and gastroesophageal reflux are the most common causes. We experienced four cases of pulmonary artery sling with...

Catheter Ablation of Atrial Flutter Using Radiofrequency Energy in a Child :A Case Report
Jae Kon Ko, In Sook Park, Young Hwee Kim, Chang Yee Hong, Jae Joong Kim, You Ho Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1996;39(10):1455-1460.   Published online October 15, 1996
Atrial flutter is a potentially life threatening complication of repair or palliation of congenital heart disease and is frequently drug resistant. Recent studies in human have demonstrated that common type atrial flutter is due to macro-reentry in the right atrium and that the reentrant circuit may involve slow conduction in the low posteroseptal area of the right atrium. Catheter ablation of atrial flutter has...

Blade atrial septostomy in infants with cyanotic congenital heart diseases.
In Sook Park, Young Hwue Kim, Chang Yee Hong
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1991;34(12):1655-1663.   Published online December 31, 1991
In patients with certain types of congenital heart malformations, an adequate interatrial communi- cation is essential for survival and balloon atrial septostomy (BAS) is a life saving procedure in these infants. However, BAS alone is not successful in older infants and children with thickened atrial septum, and blade septostomy is indicated in these situations. This procedure so far has not been reported in Korean literature...

In Sook Park, Ki Soo Kim, Chang Yee Hong, Shi Joon Yoo
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1991;34(9):1294-1298.   Published online September 30, 1991
Balloon atrial septostomy is accepted as the best initial palliative treatment in infants with certain types of cyanotic congenital heart disease and the importance of prompt creation of atrial communi- cation can not be overemphasized in these patients. Balloon atrial septostomy is performed through femoral vein using percutaneous technique in most cases and is rarely done by cut down approach. However, percutaneous femoral vein...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 1991;34(8):1139-1145.   Published online August 31, 1991
Clinical, echocardiographic and angiographic findings of a very rare case of cardiac malformation is presented. The main features were tricuspid atresia, coronary sinus septal defect, and double orifice mitral valve. These defects were correctly diagnosed by echocardiography and were confirmed by angiocardiography. This patient was palliated successfully with blade balloon atrial septostomy and bidirectional cavopulmonary shunt. To the best of our knowledge, this is the...
