PURPOSE This study aimed at comparing short-term outcomes of patients who underwent robotic-assisted laparoscopic myomectomy and laparoscopic myomectomy. METHODS From January 2008 to August 2010, prospective data including 15 consecutive patients who underwent robotic-assisted myomectomy (RALM) with the da Vinci surgical system were recorded. These cases(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the long-term effectiveness of percutaneous treatment of liver hydatid cysts. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-one patients (19 female patients and 12 male patients; age range, 8-78 years; mean age, 41 years) with 57 liver hydatid cysts underwent percutaneous treatment. The cysts were treated with hypertonic saline (15% NaCl) and/or(More)
Ovulation returns soon after abortion, with half of the women ovulating by 21 days after the procedure. Immediate post-abortion insertion provides immediate contraceptive protection. Clinicians have feared that rates of uterine perforation due to intrauterine devices (IUDs) and expulsion of IUDs may be higher in the post-abortal uterus due to its softness(More)
PURPOSE To compare the results of patients on whom staging was applied by robotic-assisted laparoscopic surgery and laparotomy for endometrial cancer. METHOD The study included 10 patients who had undergone robotic-assisted endometrial staging (group 1) and 12 patients staged by open surgery (group 2). Demographical characteristics and operative outcomes(More)
Conjoined twinning is a rare abnormality and cephalopagus is a very rare form of conjoined twins. We report a case of cephalopagus conjoined twins with encephalocele and omphalocele which diagnosed by ultrasonography and ultrafast magnetic resonance (MR) imaging at 24 weeks of the gestation. Ultrafast MR imaging can provide image quality superior to two(More)
The objective of this trial was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of early oral feeding after Caesarean delivery performed under general anaesthesia. During a 1-year period, 182 pregnant women undergoing Caesarean section under general anaesthesia were enrolled in a controlled trial of early compared with traditional post-operative oral feeding. Patients(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the conservative laparoscopic approach to adnexal torsion during reproductive age. METHODS We present 18 patients with adnexal torsion between January 1997 and December 2005. Patients treated conservatively were controlled by ultrasonography during the postoperative period. RESULTS Of 18 patients with adnexal torsion, 12 patients(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the feasibility and surgical outcome of laparoscopy-assisted surgery for large adnexal cysts. METHODS From January 1998 to October 2007, 46 women underwent laparoscopy-assisted surgery for large adnexal cysts whose maximum diameter were between 10 and 20 cm, radiologic and laboratory features suggestive of benign disease. All the(More)
A 24-year-old single woman was referred to our department due to intermittent abdominal pain. Because her serum CA 125 concentration was extremely elevated an ovarian malignancy was suspected. At the laparoscopic examination, it was determined to be a ruptured endometrioma and serum CA 125 concentrations rapidly decreased after surgery.
PURPOSE To present the outcomes of the first 25 robotic-assisted hysterectomies from Turkey. METHOD A total of 25 patients who underwent robotic-assisted hysterectomy (RAH) for benign conditions were included in the study. Patients' demographics, surgical procedures, operative and postoperative complications, hospital stay, conversion to laparotomy, time(More)
