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...

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...

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...
