Natural radioactive materials under certain conditions can reach hazardous radiological levels. The natural radionuclide (238U, 232Th, 40K) contents of rock samples at various locations in the North Tushki area were investigated using gamma-spectrometric analysis. Estimates of the measured radionuclide content have been made for the absorbed dose rate of(More)
PURPOSE To determine the value of diffusion-weighted MRI for the diagnosis of acute appendicitis in children. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty-five consecutive patients with a clinical diagnosis of acute appendicitis underwent abdominal MRI; 39 were operated on for acute appendicitis. First, the diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) alone was reviewed, followed by(More)
Contralateral testicular perfusion during unilateral testicular torsion was evaluated using simultaneous blood flow and O2 content determinations. Two groups, each consisting of 7 rats, were studied. Sham operation or 720 degrees clockwise twisting was performed on the left testes, and blood flow, O2 content and temperatures were monitored in the right(More)
Undifferentiated embryonic liver sarcoma (UELS) is a rare highly malignant neoplasm that predominantly occurs in children between 5 and 10 years of age. The typical radiologic appearance on ultrasound and computed tomography of UELS shows a large septated mass having combined cystic and solid components. These radiographic features, however, are not(More)
The aim of this study was to compare the complication rates of the single flap and double flaps versus flapless procedure in the tubularized incised plate urethroplasty. One hundred and seventy-two patients with any type of hypospadias underwent surgical repair by tubularized incised plate (TIP) urethroplasty between April 2002 and July 2009 in the two(More)
A retrospective clinical study to evaluate the effects of paralyzing vermifuges on the course of intestinal obstructions complicating ascariasis was performed. Forty-two patients, 26 patients with partial and 16 patients with complete intestinal obstructions, were treated over 7 years. Although 24 patients have not received any medications two patients with(More)
OBJECTIVE To reveal the effects of montelukast as an antioxidant and tissue protective agent and study the biochemical and histopathologic changes in experimental ischemia and ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury in rat ovaries. DESIGN Experimental study. SETTING Experimental surgery laboratory in a university department. ANIMAL(S) Forty-eight rats with(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether obesity has a negative impact on the ultrasound (US) visualization of the appendix in children clinically diagnosed with appendicitis. METHODS The medical records and US examinations of 122 children who underwent surgery due to acute or perforated appendicitis between February 2007 and January 2010(More)
BACKGROUND The VACTERL association (VA) is the non-random co-occurrence of vertebral anomalies, anal atresia, cardiovascular malformations, tracheoesophageal fistula and/or esophageal atresia, renal anomalies, and/or limb anomalies, and is referred to by the first letters of its components. Studies investigating the clinical characteristics of VA patients(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effects of growth hormone (GH) as an antioxidant and tissue-protective agent and analyse the biochemical and histopathological changes in rat ovaries due to experimental ischemia and ischemia/reperfusion injury. STUDY DESIGN Forty-eight adult female rats were randomly divided into eight groups. In Group 1, a period of bilateral(More)
