A successful attempt at percutaneous transluminanl coronary angioplasty (PTCA) to relieve stenosis of the mid-portion of the left anterior descending artery was achieved in a 6-year 9-month old boy who had multiple coronary aneurysms and stenosis due to Kawasaki disease. Despite the progression of coronary stenosis he had been well except for the perfusion(More)
It is unclear whether serum ALT levels or virological characteristics of hepatitis C virus(HCV) including HCV genotypes and HCV RNA titers, can reflect the degree of histological injury in chronic hepatitis C. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationships between the levels of histological damage and serum ALT levels, HCV genotypes or(More)
We present a typical case of Goodpasture's syndrome with massive pulmonary hemorrhage and acute deterioration of renal function. A 20-year-old male was admitted due to severe azotemia (blood urea nitrogen 214.7 mg/dL, serum creatinine 30.2 mg/dL) and was treated with emergency hemodialysis. On the 4th hospital day, a sudden onset of pulmonary hemorrhage(More)
Fibronectin (Fn) is a normal plasma and extracellular matrix glycoprotein that is involved in each phase of wound healing. For example, it is incorporated into both fibrin and collagen fibers; it opsonizes circulating tissue debris for removal by the reticuloendothelial system; it is used by macrophages, fibroblasts, and epithelial cells to move into the(More)
To investigate an association between surface electrocardiographic (ECG) parameters and sustained ventricular tachycardia (VT) in children after repair of congenital heart disease (CHD), data were obtained and analyzed in three groups (group I, 7 postoperative patients with episode of sustained VT (4 tetralogy of Fallot (TOF), 2 double outlet right(More)
Genetic changes between codons 2209 and 2248 of NS5A of genotype 1b hepatitis C virus (HCV-1b) have been reported to be associated with the sensitivity to interferon-alpha (IFN-alpha). The present study was performed to analyze such relationship in Korean patients with chronic hepatitis C and HCV-1b (n=19), including 12 chronic hepatitis C patients treated(More)
The case of a cyanotic infant with a rare combination of atypical pulmonary artery sling, imperforate anus, absence of the left kidney, interruption of the inferior vena cava, left side hemihypertrophy and diffuse-type pulmonary arteriovenous fistula is described. The clinical features were confusing, because of compounding abnormalities involving the(More)
An 11 year-old girl, whose condition was diagnosed as juvenile-type autosomal recessive polycystic kidney disease (ARPKD) at five years of age, presented with chest pain and dyspnea that had developed suddenly two months previously. Two-dimensional echocardiography, Doppler study and cardiac catheterization confirmed pulmonary hypertension. The underlying(More)
