In this study, in 131 men aged 20–75 years, we investigated correlations between bone mineral density (BMD) in the lumbar spine and femoral neck and endogenous factors (age, body mass index) as well as exogenous factors (calcium intake, physical activity, smoking, caffeine, socioeconomic and educational levels). The age had a negative effect on femoral neck(More)
OBJECTIVE We present our experience with the various sonographic and CT findings observed in patients with hydatid disease involving the kidney. The imaging characteristics of various echinococcal cysts were evaluated comparatively to offer a diagnostically better explanation for the radiologic images and to assist the urologist in defining the nature of(More)
OBJECTIVE It is known that increased sympathetic activity and decreased parasympathetic activity are present in patients with fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS). This study aims to investigate the correlations of autonomic dysfunction and differences in autonomic circadian activity with arrhythmia prevalence in women with FMS. METHODS Fifty female patients with(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study is to investigate the effects of ovariectomy on bone mineral density (BMD) and oxidative state in rats, and the alterations in these effects that vitamin C supplementation may produce. MATERIALS AND METHODS TWENTY FEMALE WISTAR ALBINO RATS WERE RANDOMLY DIVIDED INTO THREE GROUPS: control (C, n=6); ovariectomy (O, n=7); and(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of sonographically guided percutaneous drainage and irrigation of hepatic hydatid cysts. METHODS Sixty-one patients with 84 hepatic hydatid cysts were treated using the puncture, aspiration, injection, and reaspiration (PAIR) technique under sonographic guidance. Patients with cysts(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to investigate the presence of autonomic dysfunction in patients with osteoporosis. DESIGN This is a prospective controlled trial. Sixteen postmenopausal female patients with osteoporosis and 10 age-matched postmenopausal nonosteoporotic controls were included in the study. Participants were divided into the(More)
AIM Inguinoscrotal pathologies are commonly seen in childhood. The genitofemoral nerve (GFN) is responsible for sensitive innervations of scrotal region and the motor innervations of cremasteric muscle. GFN also innervates the afferent and efferent pathways of cremasteric reflex. A prospective study was performed to evaluate the possible relation between(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate the possible variations in antioxidant enzymes, lipid peroxidation and erythrocyte deformability in experimentally induced osteoporosis in female rats and to assess the effects of vitamin C supplementation on those variations. MATERIAL A total of 20 female Wistar Albino Rats were randomized into the three(More)
UNLABELLED The objective of the study was to investigate the effect of two different breakfasts on the pharmacokinetics of nelfinavir under steady state conditions. METHODS Twenty-four healthy male volunteers were evaluated in a 17 days open labeled one sequence crossover study evaluating the effect of a 'light' breakfast (350 kcal) compared to a standard(More)
