Young Hwue Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2021;64(2):49-59.   Published online April 8, 2020
Since the initial International Society of Heart Lung Transplantation registry was published in 1982, the number of pediatric heart transplantations has increased markedly, reaching a steady state of 500–550 transplantation annually and occupying up to 10% of total heart transplantations. Heart transplantation is considered an established therapeutic option for patients with end-stage heart disease. The long-term outcomes of pediatric heart...

Case Report
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...

Immunologic Changes of Peripheral Blood Lymphocytes in Kawasaki Disease after Intravenous Gamma Globulin Therapy
Jung Yeon Shim, Kyung Mo Kim, Young Hwue Kim, Soo-Jong Hong
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1996;39(5):712-721.   Published online May 15, 1996
Purpose : Kawasaki disease(KD) is multi-systemic vasculitis and coronary artery abnormalities can develop up to 30 percent in untreated patients. Several observations suggest that immune activation and the secretion of cytokines from immune effector cells contribute to the pathogenesis of this disease. Though high dose intravenous gamma globulin(IVGG,>1 gm/kg) is effective in reducing the prevalence of coronary artery aneurysms in KD,...

The results were as follows; 1) There were total of 79 cases with hand, foot and mouth disease during this period. The aseptic meningitis was combined in 18cases(22.8%) 2)...
Treatment of Kawasaki Disease with Single High-dose Intravenous Gammaglobulin
Mi Koo Kang, Eun Young Cho, Young Hwue Kim, Ki Soo Kim, Young Seo Park, In Sook Park, Hyung Nam Moon, Chang Yee Hong
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1992;35(3):342-348.   Published online March 15, 1992
Kawasaki disease is an acute febrile illness of unknown origin and most frequently affects infants and children under 5 years of age. Coronary aneurysms are the most serious complications and 15-20% of patient develop coronary aneurysm. We studied 50 children who wre diagnosed as Kawasaki disease and treated simultaneously with single high-dose gammaglobulin (2 gm/kg/day) and aspirin at Asan Medical Canter...
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...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 1990;33(11):1540-1547.   Published online November 30, 1990
Primary cardiac tumor is very rare and has been a medical curiosity but is potentially curable by current management with improvements of the imaging apparatus and the surgical technique. Metastatic cardiac tumor is also very rare and is more difficult to diagnose than primary ones because of lack of specific symptoms. Twelve cases of cardiac tumor, collected from 1978 to 1989 at the Department...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 1989;32(8):1093-1097.   Published online August 31, 1989
To determine the incidence of cardiac arrhythmias of the school children, we have performed heart screening by the questionare and EKG and physical examination from September 1984 to October 1987 in Seoul. 1) The incidence of the cardiac arrhythmias was 1.27%. 2) There were 449 cases of heart diseases detected. Among these heart diseases there were congeni- tal heart diseases in 82 cases (0.31%), acquired heart diseases...

Ki Soo Kim, Young Hwue Kim, Chung Il Noh, Jung Yun Choi, Yong Soo Yoon, Chang Yee Hong
Clin Exp Pediatr. 1989;32(7):958-964.   Published online July 31, 1989
Ventricular tachycardia (VT) is uncommon, but is in increasing tendency probably due to better case detection and longer survival of the patients with complex congenital heart disease. Widespread use of 24 hour ECG has contributed a lot to better understanding of ventricular tachycardia. Fourteen cases of ventricular tachycardia diagnosed by 24 hour ECG at Seoul National Children’ s Hospital from Feb. 1986 to Sep....
