The cerebral vessels are innervated by sympathetic, parasympathetic, and sensory nerves. A sensory innervation of the cerebral vessels originating in the trigeminal ganglion has been described in a number of species by several investigations. It has been shown that the electrical stimulation of the trigeminal ganglion causes an increase of cerebral cortical(More)
BACKGROUND In many tumors including ovarian cancer, cell proliferation and apoptosis are important in pathogenesis and there are many alterations in most of the genes related to the cell cycle. This study was designed to evaluate immunohistochemistry with apoptotic-antiapoptotic proteins (p53, p21, bax, and bcl-2), c-kit, telomerase, and metallothionein as(More)
OBJECTIVE We wanted to compare the efficacies of 95% ethanol and 20% hypertonic saline (HS) sclerotherapies that were performed in a single session under CT guidance for the management of simple renal cysts. MATERIALS AND METHODS A prospective series of 74 consecutive patients (average age: 57.6 +/- 8.1 years) with simple renal cysts were enrolled in this(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the habituation rates of the sympathetic skin response (SSR) in sedentary subjects and trained sportsmen. A total of 52 voluntary male students (30 sedentary subjects and 22 trained sportsmen) participated in the experiment. SSR was recorded with the contralateral electrical stimulation of the ulnar nerve (of(More)
We designed a randomized, double-blinded study to determine the efficacy and safety of 0.5 mg/kg intravenous ephedrine for the prevention of hypotension during spinal anesthesia for cesarean delivery. Patients were randomly allocated into two groups: ephedrine group (n=21) and control group (n=21). Intravenous preload of 15 mL/kg lactated Ringer's solution(More)
BACKGROUND We presented abdominal liposarcoma cases diagnosed and managed in a tertiary care center and also conducted a literature review on main features of this tumor. METHODS Chart reviews of eight cases were conducted, and clinical, surgical, histopathological, and follow-up data were recorded. RESULTS Overall, complete surgical resection was(More)
BACKGROUND We investigated the changes in the values of carotid intima-media thickness (IMT) and Doppler index measurements in the autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD), peritoneal dialysis (PD), and hemodialysis (HD) patients. MATERIAL AND METHODS Twenty outpatients on HD (mean age 46.1 ± 16.4), 27 outpatients on PD (mean age 45 ± 12.4),(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the effect age-related changes on the MRI-based parameters related to several measurement of temporal lobe in the lifespan of adult persons. MRI scans of head (n=236) were reviewed retrospectively to identify abnormalities of temporal lobe, third ventricle, and temporal horn of lateral ventricle. Patients were divided(More)
BACKGROUND During embryonal period, complete obliteration of the urachus at the umbilicus and incomplete closure at the bladder level are the cause of vesicourachal diverticulum. This abnormality is a rare finding that is usually discovered incidentally during radiological evaluation. Occasionally, stones have been detected within the diverticulum. CASE(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to evaluate the association of maternal serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D, paraoxonase 1, and neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio in women having early spontaneous preterm birth without clinical chorioamnionitis. MATERIAL AND METHODS This study was prospectively administered in women referred to our obstetrics service with preterm(More)
