J Korean Pediatr Soc. 2003;46(1):17-23.   Published online January 15, 2003
Purpose : Cholestasis is a major complication in prolonged use of TPN, especially in the neonatal period, but there are few long-term reviews examining the clinical course in premature infants. Thus, in this study, we reviewed premature infants with TPN-associated cholestasis(TPNAC) to determine the incidence, clinical courses and possible risk factors. Methods : Retrospective review of 66 premature infants less than...

J Korean Pediatr Soc. 2003;46(1):37-41.   Published online January 15, 2003
Purpose : Although air enema reduction has been known as a good method of diagnosis and treatment of intussusception, it could develop colon perforation. However, there have been few studies about this complication. So we analyzed the risk factors of colon perforation during air enema reduction in patients with intussusception. Methods : We reviewed the charts of 12 colon perforation patients...

Purpose : The acute respiratory distress syndrome(ARDS), an acute form of severe alveolar-capillary injury evolving after a direct or indirect lung insult is thought to be a common cause of respiratory failure though not many clinical studies on the subject have been made yet. Methods : Between January 1992 and December 2001, we conducted a retrospective study on 33 children who...
Role of Transesophageal Pacing in Evaluation of Palpitation in Infants and Children

J Korean Pediatr Soc. 2003;46(1):51-55.   Published online January 15, 2003
Purpose : We intended to find out the role of transesophageal atrial pacing in evaluation of infants and children with palpitation of unknown origin. Methods : We tried transesophageal atrial pacing study in 69 infants and children with palpitation, in whom tachycardia wasn't documented in electrocardiogram and reviewed retrospectively the records of transesophageal pacing and medical records of theses patients to...
Repetition of Apoptosis Induced by Amiloride Derivatives in Human Umbilical Vein Endothelial Cells
Kyu Chang Park, Kyu Sang Park, Soo Jee Moon
J Korean Pediatr Soc. 2003;46(1):56-66.   Published online January 15, 2003
Purpose : Human umbilical vein endothelial cells(HUVECs) play an important role in regulating blood flow by releasing vasoactive substances. It has been reported that endothelial impairment and dysfunction might be a primary cause of placental vascular disease, which is manifested clinically as preeclampsia in mother and intrauterine growth restriction in fetus. Furthermore, the frequency of apoptotic changes is increased in...
Morphologic Changes of the Pulmonary Arteries after Stent Implantation on Branch Pulmonary Artery Stenosis - Impact of Pulmonary Insufficiency -
Me Jin Kim, Du Cheol Kang, Jae Young Choi, Jong Kyun Lee, Jun Hee Sul, Sung Kyu Lee
J Korean Pediatr Soc. 2003;46(1):67-75.   Published online January 15, 2003
Purpose : Intravascular stent implantation for the treatment of postoperative branch pulmonary artery(PA) stenosis has been used successfully. However, the cross sectional area of contralateral branch PA does not regress in spite of the successful dilation of the stenotic branch PA after stent implantation. We analyzed the morphologic and hemodynamic factors on the size of branch PA after successful...

J Korean Pediatr Soc. 2003;46(1):95-99.   Published online January 15, 2003
Krabbe disease is a rare autosomal recessive disorder clinically characterized by retardation in motor development, prominent spasticity, seizures, and optic atrophy. Pathologically, there are many globoid cells in the white matter, in addition to the lack of myelin and the presence of severe gliosis. Hence Krabbe disease is known as globoid cell leukodystrophy. Biochemically, the primary enzymatic deficiency in Krabbe...
