Continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) has emerged as the modality of choice for the management of high-risk neonates with acute kidney injury (AKI), inborn errors of metabolism and multi-organ dysfunction. The aim of this study was to evaluate fluid overload (FO) and investigate the factors associated with outcomes in neonates undergoing CRRT. We(More)
PURPOSE Although microalbuminuria is known as a predictor of clinical nephropathy and cardiomyopathy, few studies have investigated the incidence and reference range of microalbuminuria in healthy children. This study aimed to establish a reference range and to study the age-related trend for spot urine microalbumin/creatinine ratio in a Korean pediatric(More)

AIM The incidence of pediatric urolithiasis has increased over the last century because of dietary changes, metabolic abnormalities, climate change, and genitourinary abnormalities. Data on pediatric urolithiasis in non-endemic countries are limited. The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical findings and metabolic etiology of urolithiasis in Korean(More)
Anti-neutrophil cytoplasmic antibodies (ANCA) are associated with systemic vasculitis. The pathophysiology of ANCA-associated vasculitis (AAV) has not been clearly proven, and drug-induced ANCA-associated vasculitis has been reported. Wilson's disease is an inborn error of copper metabolism caused by a mutation in the copper transporting gene ATP7B, and(More)
BACKGROUND Cyclosporine A and tacrolimus (TAC) are often used as a second-line treatment for children with refractory nephrotic syndrome (NS). This study was undertaken to investigate the efficacy and safety of Tacrobell®, a locally produced generic form of TAC. METHODS This study was a one-year prospective, open-label, single-arm, multicenter trial.(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate advantages and disadvantages of identical implants with internal or external connections. MATERIALS AND METHODS Two hundred patients with any type of edentulism (single tooth, partial and total edentulism) requiring one implant-supported prosthesis were randomly allocated in two equal groups to receive either implants with an external(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate advantages and disadvantages of identical implants with internal or external connections. MATERIALS AND METHODS One hundred and twenty patients with any type of edentulism (single tooth, partial and total edentulism), requiring one implant-supported prosthesis were randomly allocated in two equal groups to receive either implants with(More)
Bartter syndrome (BS) is an inherited renal tubular disorder characterized by low or normal blood pressure, hypokalemic metabolic alkalosis, and hyperreninemic hyperaldosteronism. Type III BS is caused by loss-of-function mutations in CLCNKB encoding basolateral ClC-Kb. The clinical phenotype of patients with CLCNKB mutations has been known to be highly(More)
Takayasu arteritis (TA) is a chronic inflammatory disease of unknown etiology that affects mainly the aorta, main aortic branches, and pulmonary arteries.
