Percutaneous Balloon Angioplasty in Children with Pulmonary Valvular Stenosis.
Yong Soo Yun, Chang Yee Hong
J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1987;30(12):1355-1362.   Published online December 31, 1987
Pulmonary valve stenosis was relieved by balloon dilatation during cardiac catheterization on 58 children aged 8 months to 15 years, mean 6.2 years. Pulmonary valve diameter was estimated by two-dimensional echocardiogrphy to assist in the choice of balloon size. Before dilatation the transpulmonary systolic pressure gradients ranged from 15 mmHg to 250 mmHg. There were significant reduction in the transpulmonary systolic pressure gradients immediately after...
Two-Dimensional Echocardiographic Diagnosis of Cornary Aneurysms in Children with the Mucocutaneous Lymphnode Syndrome.
Jun Hee Sul, Sung Kyu Lee, Dong Shik Chin
J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1987;30(12):1363-1367.   Published online December 31, 1987
The two dimensional echocardiographic technique for detecting coronary artery aneurysms was performed in 62 cases with mucocutaneous lymphnode syndrome. Of 62 patients with MCLS, coronary artery aneurysms were detected as large echo-free space in 8 patients. It was found that coronary artery aneurysms usually developed during the acute stage of the illness, and regressed gradually thereafter. Most aneurysms disappeared in 6 months. Therefore, Echocardiography is...

J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1987;30(12):1387-1400.   Published online December 31, 1987
Auditory Brainstem Response(ABR) has been found to be useful for evaluating objective assessment of hearing thresholds, maturation of the brainstem and neurological disorders in the brainstem. Therefore it is essential to define normal ranges and accurate changes in the wave form of the ABR in children. This study was undertaken with the analysis of 243 ABR in children with normal otological, developmental, neurological...

Isoimmune thrombocytopenic purpura is an uncommon cause of purpura in the newborn infant, caused by fetal-maternal platelet incompatibility. The maternal isoantibodies against fetal platelet antigens, which are lacked in mother’s platelets, cross placenta and cause destructions of baby’s platelet. A bady bom with IITP was diagnosed in the first day of life and treated successfully with platelet concentrate of mother’s blood.
