Patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) display enhanced genomic damage. DNA repair gene polymorphisms may affect DNA repair capacity and modulate susceptibility to ESRD. In this study, we aimed to determine the frequency of polymorphisms in two DNA repair enzyme genes, Xeroderma pigmentosum complementation group D (XPD) and X-ray cross-complementing(More)
AIM Peritonitis is one of the major comorbidities of peritoneal dialysis (PD) patients. The aim of this study was to concentrate on potential risk factors, including more recently studied ones among the classical ones for peritonitis, in PD patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS We analysed 109 patients (F/M = 42/67) followed up at least for 3 months in a single(More)
The goal of this study is to demonstrate the age-related changes in multimodality digit span under a research design in which level of education is controlled. Volunteer participants (n = 1183) were distributed over levels of age (13-98 years) and education (5-8, 9-11, and 12+ years). Digit span was measured through 11 scores of the Visual Aural Digit Span(More)
The posterior inferior cerebellar artery (PICA) is normally a branch of the vertebral artery. In this rare case, the unilateral left vertebral artery continued its course as the left PICA, and an extremely small caliber left vertebral artery joined the righ vertebral artery to form the basilar artery. This rare feature of the PICA is demonstrated and its(More)
AIMS/OBJECTIVES It has been previously recognized that the anatomy of arterial bifurcations influences blood flow and has a significant role in the development of vascular disease. MATERIAL AND METHODS In the present study, we measured the average diameters of the internal carotid (ICA), anterior cerebral (ACA), and middle cerebral arteries (MCA) in(More)
