OBJECTIVE We evaluated the efficacy of local nitroglycerin application in preventing and treating flap complications after modified radical mastectomy in a large patient cohort. PATIENTS AND METHODS Between 1993 and 2008, 6426 patients undergoing surgery for stage II breast cancer were enrolled in this prospective study. Patients were randomised into(More)
This paper describes the synthesis and characterization of a composite constituted by an antiarthritic agent (AA) intercalated into a layered double hydroxide (LDH) supported on magnesium ferrite. Core-shell nanocomposites were prepared by depositing Mg-Al-NO(3)-LDH on a MgFe(2)O(4) core prepared by calcination of a nonstoichiometric Mg-Fe-CO(3)-LDH.(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Our aim is to investigate the anxiety status of the patient before elective cholecystectomy and to analyze the relation between the level of anxiety for a given operation type (laparoscopic and open cholecystectomy) and the corresponding demographic and social data. METHODS A total of 333 patients undergoing cholecystectomy due(More)
Strangulated femoral hernia is a common surgical emergency. The contents of the hernial sac commonly include omentum and small bowel, but, occasionally, strangulation of other organs such as Meckel's diverticulum, stomach, ovary, or appendix may occur, resulting in unusual clinical presentations. We report of a case with strangulated femoral hernia(More)
We report the synthesis, characterization and in vitro release behavior of anti-cancer drug carrying iron oxide@layered double hydroxide core-shell nanocomposites with sizes ranging from 40 to 300 nm, good drug loading capacities and soft ferromagnetic properties. HRTEM analyses verified that nearly spherical isotropic carriers were obtained by coating(More)
The relative activities of neutral, cationic, and anionic chromium ascorbate complexes toward isolated human mitochondrial and genomic DNA were investigated at physiologically relevant conditions by agarose gel electrophoresis. A direct relationship between the charge of the Cr(III) species and their DNA-damaging properties was found. The cationic species(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS The aim of this trial was to study the role of glucagon-like peptide-2 in reducing bacterial translocation by virtue of its anti-inflammatory effects and ability to decrease intestinal permeability in rat models of inflammatory bowel diseases. On the basis of our results and those of other recent studies, we suggest a new treatment modality(More)
In the title Co(II) complex, [Co(C(5)H(3)N(2)O(4))(2)(H(2)O)(4)]·2H(2)O, the Co(II) ion is located on an inversion center and is coordinated by two orotate (2,6-dioxo-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyrimidine-4-carboxylate) anions and four water mol-ecules in a slightly distorted octa-hedral geometry. The dihedral angle between the carboxyl-ate group and the attached(More)
Carborane-intercalated layered double hydroxide nanohybrids (CB-LDH) and a magnesium ferrite (MF) supported-CB-LDH core-shell nanocomposite (CB-LDH@MF) are reported. The preparation of nanohybrids were carried out by exchanging the interlayer nitrate groups of Mg-Al-NO3-LDH with monothiol-o-carborane (SCB), 1-methyl-2-carboxyl-o-carborane (MeCB),(More)
