Hepatoportal sclerosis (HPS) is a clinical disorder of obscure pathogenesis with a variable clinical profile. The aim of the study was to summarize the clinical features of Turkish patients with HPS and to measure the serum levels of interleukin (IL)-6 and interferon (IFN)-γ to determine the T helper cell profile in the pathogenesis. The study was conducted(More)
The magnetic compression anastomotic (MCA) method was introduced in 1998 by Yamanouchi et al. for the rescue treatment of bile duct obstructions. To date, it has been reported in a few cases and small case series. Herein we report the use of a novel magnet for the treatment of an anastomotic biliary obstruction after living donor related liver(More)
An aberrant right posterior hepatic duct is present in 4.8-8.4% of the population. It is one of the causes of bile duct injury during laparascopic cholecystectomy. Herein we present a patient with complete transection of the common hepatic duct during laparascopic cholecystectomy (Stewart-Way class 3). Interestingly, the patient had an intact aberrant right(More)
Endoscopic treatment is effective in the treatment of patients with bile duct injury after cholecystectomy. We aimed to investigate the long-term results of endoscopic treatment, factors predicting the recurrence of the stricture, and to determine the optimal endoscopic treatment. The study was a retrospective cohort analysis and conducted at a tertiary(More)
Up to 20% of patients, or even more, will fail to obtain eradication after a standard triple therapy. The aim of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of moxifloxacine-containing regimens in the first-line treatment of Helicobacter pylori. One hundred and twenty H. pylori-positive patients were randomized into four groups to receive one of the following(More)
A 51-year-old woman with an 8-month history of recurrent episodes of abdominal pain, mild bloody diarrhea, andweight loss (6kg in 3 months) was referred to our unit for evaluation of suspected Crohn’s disease. She had carried a diagnosis of type 1 neurofibromatosis for 30 years. Physical examination revealed multiple café-au-lait spots and multiple(More)
pin-hole aperture. The suture was held endoscopically (Fig. 3) and subsequently re-grasped and externalized with the Endoclose on the opposite side of the GCF. These steps were repeated to insert two further sutures across the GCF. Three surgical knots were then tied externally after surgical “freshening” of the fistulous tract (Fig. 4). Some proposed(More)
BACKGROUND Colonoscopy is currently considered to be the gold standard method for detecting and removing adenomatous polyps. However, tandem colonoscopy studies reveal a pooled polyp miss rate of 22%. OBJECTIVE A prospective randomized trial was conducted to assess whether alteration of patient position during colonoscopy withdrawal increases the adenoma(More)
