Fragmented QRS (fQRS) on 12-lead electrocardiography reflects conduction delay caused by myocardial fibrosis and dysfunction. Ventricular fibrosis detected by late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) is reportedly correlated with worse clinical outcomes in adults with repaired tetralogy of Fallot (TOF). The aim of this study was to(More)
Hunter syndrome (mucopolysaccharidosis II, MPS II) is a rare, X-linked disorder of glycosaminoglycan (GAG) catabolism caused by a deficiency in the activity of the lysosomal enzyme, iduronate-2-sulfatase (I2S). In this study, the medical records of 75 Korean patients with Hunter syndrome (74 males, 1 female) were retrospectively reviewed to investigate the(More)
In a recent paper, the first author proved the log-concavity of the coefficients of the characteristic polynomial of a matroid realizable over a field of characteristic 0, answering a long-standing conjecture of Read in graph theory. We extend the proof to all realizable matroids, making progress towards a more general conjecture of Rota–Heron–Welsh. Our(More)
PURPOSE The aims of this study were to determine the factors affecting the outcome of patent ductus arteriosus ligation in very low birth weight infants (VLBWI) and demonstrate the safety of PDA ligation in VLBWI performed in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). MATERIALS AND METHODS From October 1994 to July 2006, medical records of 94 VLBWI weighing(More)
We show that the maximum likelihood degree of a smooth very affine variety is equal to the signed topological Euler characteristic. This generalizes Orlik and Terao’s solution to Varchenko’s conjecture on complements of hyperplane arrangements to smooth very affine varieties. For very affine varieties satisfying a genericity condition at infinity, the(More)
We report the fabrication of ultradense circular nanolines of block copolymer (BCP) microdomains over macroscopic areas. These lines were generated by the directed self-assembly (DSA) of BCPs on the topographically patterned substrates, where the trenches with circular shape are patterned on a flat substrate. The width of the trench and the distance between(More)
The CoaguChek XS international normalized ratio (INR) assay was compared to INR assay by a standard laboratory method in children with heart disease on anticoagulant therapy. The data comprised 120 pairs of INR values for 42 patients (age <16 yr) who attended a cardiology clinic between 1 May 2007 and 30 January 2008. Parallel INR assays by the CoaguChek XS(More)
PURPOSE Some patients with neurally mediated reflex syncope may be misdiagnosed as epilepsy because myoclonic jerky movements are observed during syncope. The seizure-like activities during the head-up tilt test (HUT) have been rarely reported. The purpose of this study was to assess the characteristics of these seizure-like activities and evaluate whether(More)
