Breast Feeding: A Neurobiologic Perspective
Jan Winberg
J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1996;39(1):36-41.   Published online January 15, 1996
Breast-feeding(BF) failures are common in industrialized societies and can only partly be explained by social, psychologic, culturaland cognitive factors. The more profound causes remain unknown. This annotation presents clinical observations suggesting that several nursing care rituals in delivery rooms and maternity wards interfere with innate behavioural programs and consequently may disturb the unfolding feeding behaviour. Mother-infant interaction including BF depend on the activation of acomplex network...

J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1996;39(1):72-77.   Published online January 15, 1996
Purpose : We report the results of a policy of primary surgical closure of large ventricular septal defects(VSDs) applied over the past 3 years to all symptomatic infants regardless of patient weight, location or number of VSDs. To analyze the early postoperative mortality and other surgical complications in young infants, comparison of preoperative and outcome variables were made between infants...
Evaluation of Abnormal Coronary Artery Flow in Anomalous Coronary Artery Connections by Pulsed and Color Doppler Echocardiography
Young Mi Hong
J Korean Pediatr Soc. 1996;39(1):78-87.   Published online January 15, 1996
Purpose : Anomalous connection of coronary artery can result in damage of myocardial perfusion, myocardial infarction, or congestive heart failure. Echocardiography has been used to demonstrate coronary artery anomalies such as coronary artery fistula, anomalous origin of the left coronary artery from the pulmonary artery, and aneurysm of the coronary arteries in Kawasaki disease. Definitive diagnosis relies on cardiac catheterization The...

Mycoplasma pneumoniae has been shown to be of etiologic importance in cases of upper-and lower-respiratory tract infections, especially in children and young adults. It may cause a variety of extrapulmonary manifestations in multiple organ systems, most commonly the central nervous system. The extrapulmonary syndromes include meningitis, cerebral infarction, acute transverse myelitis, psychosis, cerebellar ataxia, Guillain-Barré syndrome and Reye syndrome. Cerebral...
