BACKGROUND Bronchiectasis is usually caused by pulmonary infections and bronchial obstruction. It is still a serious problem in developing countries as our country. We reviewed the morbidity and mortality rates and outcome of surgical treatment for bronchiectasis. PATIENTS AND METHODS Between 1990 and 2000, 166 patients (92 female and 74 male patients)(More)
Authors present a rare case of bifocal schwannoma of thoracic wall showing metabolic activity on FDG PET images. A 43-year-old male with palpable mass on lateral chest wall was referred for F-18 FDG PET/CT imaging for differential diagnosis. His medical history and basic laboratory results were unremarkable. PET/CT images revealed a mild FDG uptake in the(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the expression of Bcl-2 gene and prognostic importance of Bcl-2 expression in paraffin embedded blocks of patients diagnosed with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). This study included the retrospective analysis of overall 46 patients diagnosed with NSCLC in our clinic between 1996 and 1999. In 16 (34.8%) patients,(More)
AIMS AND BACKGROUND Many prognostic factors have been evaluated both for SCLC and NSCLC. The prognostic significance of blood group antigen expression of tumor tissues has been studied particularly in NSCLC, yielding divergent results. The aim of the present study was to investigate the prognostic value of the tumoral expression of blood group antigens ABH(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS The success of I-131 therapy in geriatric patients who were referred to an endocrinology clinic with toxic nodular goiter and who lived in iodine-deficiency regions was studied. MATERIALS AND METHODS Patients older than 60 years who received I-131 therapy were included via retrospective data analyses. Fifty-nine patients between 60 and(More)
The staging of non-small cell lung cancer is the most important factor that affects the treatment form and prognosis. The management strategy includes serious variations according to clinical condition of the patient, preoperative, intraoperative and postoperative pathologic staging outcomes. Today, obtaining the histopathological diagnosis preoperatively(More)
OBJECTIVES The tumor size is an important prognostic factor in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). However, a criterion for tumor size has remained unchanged for the last 25 years in TNM classification. The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between tumor size and survival in patients with non-small cell lung cancer. METHOD Of 550(More)
There exists a rarely observed association between pulmonary histiocytosis X and bronchopulmonary cancer. However, the frequency of bronchopulmonary cancer in these patients is higher than in the general population. A 28-year-old patient who currently smokes ten packs of cigarettes a year came to our department of pneumology with complains of cough and(More)
OBJECTIVE Early changes in atherosclerosis can be diagnosed by the carotid artery intima-media thickness (CIMT) measurement. Normal range of CIMT in healthy subjects has not been studied yet in our country. Therefore, the aim of this study was to measure the CIMT in healthy individuals and investigate affecting parameters of CIMT. METHODS Overall, 2298(More)
Osteoma is a rare benign tumor, composed of bony tissues. It predominantly involves the skull but rarely the long bones. In this report we present a case of clavicular osteoma associated with bronchial osteomas. This association has not previously been reported. There was no evidence of Gardner’s syndrome.
