Brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) has been considered a biochemical marker for myocarditis in Kawasaki disease. We performed this study to determine its quantitative significance.


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.

Variation of parameters according to cardiac cycle length, evaluated by TDI in children
Chang-Hyun Lee, Jae-Kwang Kim, Hyun-Seung Jin, Kie-Young Park, Bong-Seong Kim, Myung-Ki Han
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2009;52(3):339-345.   Published online March 15, 2009
Purpose : This study aimed to determine the variation in parameters according to cardiac cycle length (CL; time interval between the QRS peaks on ECG) in children by using the conventional pulsed Doppler and tissue Doppler imaging echocardiography. Methods : Eighteen children with an anatomically normal heart were enrolled for the study. All children were examined by conventional and pulsed...

목 적 : 소아를 대상으로 고식적인 심초음파와 도플러 초음파를 이용하여 서로 다른 두 방법으로 측정한 심근 수행 지수의 차이를 알아보는 것이다. 방 법 : 2005년 12월부터 2006년 2월까지 강릉 아산 병원을 방문한 정상 심장을 가진 27명의 소아를 대상으로 하였다. 우선 심첨 4방 단면도에서 승모판 유입 혈류 도플러로부터 a1간격을 측정하고, 심첨 5방 단면도에서 ET1을 측정하였다. 그런 연후, MPI1, ICT1 그리고 IRT1을 계산하였다....
Immune responses of hepatitis B vaccination among very low birth weight infant
Young-Deuk Kim, Myung-Ki Han, Ai-Rhan E. Kim, Ki-Soo Kim, Soo-Young Pi
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2006;49(8):857-863.   Published online August 15, 2006
Purpose : To evaluate the immunogenicity of hepatitis B vaccine among very low birth weight infants(VLBWI) who were vaccinated at 0, 1, 6 months of chronological age and to determine the factors associated with antibody formations. Methods : A total of 243 VLBWI admitted to Seoul and Gangneung Asan Medical Center neonatal intensive care units from 1997 to 2004 were...
