BACKGROUND/PURPOSE Adnexal torsion is a condition that may result in serious morbidity including adnexal removal. However, conservative management with preserving the torsed adnexa is not justified, and long-term outcomes remain unclear. METHODS The records of 14 girls with ovarian torsion whose adnexal structures were preserved after detorsion were(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the levels of serum cortisol, dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate (DHEA-S), nitric oxide (NO) and adrenomedullin (AM) in schizophrenic patients. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Sixty-six male patients with chronic schizophrenia and 28 normal male subjects participated in this study. The duration of disease was 145 +/- 120 (mean +/- SD) months.(More)
This study outlines the incidence of acquired clinical inguinal manifestations (CIM) in infants undergoing ventriculoperitoneal (VP) shunt procedures, and the possible underlying mechanisms in the development of these pathologies. The charts of children who had undergone VP shunt procedures for hydrocephalus between 1992 and 2002 were reviewed. All patients(More)
Osteoporosis is a major problem in contemporary society. However, there is not enough data on multiparity and osteoporosis from developing and/or undeveloped countries on a large scale. Selection of participants in this study was aimed at the detection of bone status in healthy (normal bone mineral density) postmenopausal (n = 46, 55.3 +/- 6.7 years) and(More)
The current report describes a 13-month-old boy with primary pulmonary rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) that originated within a congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation (CCAM). To the best of our knowledge, he is the youngest patient of all primary pulmonary RMS cases reported in the English-language literature. The tumor, localized in left upper lobe, was removed(More)
BACKGROUND/PURPOSE Helicobacter pylori is a microorganism known to colonize in gastric type of mucosa and is associated with gastritis and peptic ulceration. The aim of the study was to determine whether colonization of H pylori in heterotopic gastric mucosa plays a role in bleeding of Meckel's diverticulum. METHODS Histopathologic slides of patients who(More)
Atherosclerosis is the main underlying pathology of coronary artery disease (CAD), which is the leading cause of mortality worldwide. Lectin-like oxidized low-density lipoprotein receptor-1 (LOX-1) is involved in multiple phases of vascular dysfunction, including endothelial dysfunction, atherosclerotic plaque formation, and destabilization. The purpose of(More)
AIM The radiation can induce vessel injury. The result of this injury can be severe and life-threatening. There are a few studies demonstrating an increase in intima-media thickness (IMT) of the common carotid artery (CCA) after radiotherapy, especially in head and neck cancers. We evaluated the effect of I-131 to the IMT of the CCA in the patients who were(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was to compare the effectiveness of point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) with direct radiography in diagnosis and management of the patients with distal radius fractures (DRFs). METHODS In this study, patients between ages 5 and 55 years admitted to the emergency department with low energy upper extremity trauma with suspected(More)
Percutaneous coronary intervention-related periprocedural myocardial infarction (PCI-RPMI) has now been definitively linked in large data sets to long-term adverse outcomes. It is more likely that the relationship is caused by the underlying predisposing factors that led to the PCI-RPMI, such as plaque vulnerability. Lectin-like oxidized low-density(More)
