Hypocalcemia is the principal factor that determines length of hospital stay after thyroid surgery. Seventy-nine patients who underwent thyroidectomy were prospectively evaluated in order to define risk factors for postoperative hypocalcemia. Serum samples were taken postoperatively at 8, 14, 24, and 48 hours to measure total calcium levels. The slope of(More)
Whey is a dairy product containing milk serum proteins with diverse biological effects. In this study, the effect of dietary whey supplementation on wound healing was investigated. Rats were fed a standard or whey-supplemented diet for three weeks. Wound healing parameters, glutathione, and lipid peroxide levels were determined three days after the(More)
Paraduodenal hernias are rare congenital malformations consisting of incomplete rotation of the midgut, which may lead to intestinal obstruction or simply be detected as an incidental finding at autopsy or laparotomy. We report a case of left paraduodenal hernia diagnosed preoperatively by computed tomography and operated on in an emergency setting for(More)
We investigated the gastric response to an ulcerogenic irritant and the change in gastric functions in an experimental rat model of obstructive jaundice, with or without biliary drainage. After biliary obstruction for 14 days, rats with ligated bile duct (BDL) were randomly divided into three groups: BDL group without biliary drainage, BDL followed by(More)
Laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) has the advantages of early return to full daily activity, early return to work, and better cosmetic result, as well as quickly resolving pain. Yet how this information about the procedure influences a patient’s attitude toward laparocopy is not known. In this study we analyzed the factors that play role in the(More)
As an advanced surgical procedure, laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (LRYGB) is associated with considerable morbidity, especially in the learning curve period. The aim of this study was to evaluate the role of endoscopy during LRYGB surgery in assessing the gastric pouch and anastomosis for air leak, bleeding, and structure at the beginning of a(More)
OBJECTIVE Even though, laparoscopy is not accepted as the current gold standard in colorectal surgery, it can be performed as safely as open surgery. It is also widely accepted that the technique has many advantages. In this study, we evaluated the results of 33 patients with laparoscopic colorectal resection. MATERIAL AND METHODS Thirty-three patients(More)
In order to investigate the effect of bile acids on gastrointestinal inflammations, bile duct ligated rats (BDL) were treated with GCA (25 mM/ml, oral or colonic) or saline 1 h before ethanol challenge and twice daily for 3 days in the ileitis group, while GCA was given twice daily for 3 days in the colitis group. BDL reduced the macroscopic and microscopic(More)
