BACKGROUND The present study analyses the results of wide excision with primary closure (PC), wide excision with classical Limberg flap reconstruction (LF) and wide excision with modified Limberg flap reconstruction (MLF) in the surgical treatment of sacrococcygeal pilonidal disease. METHODS One hundred and sixty-two well-documented patients who were(More)
Mechanical outflow obstruction and leakage from the exit site of the catheter are two common complications of continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis. To lessen these complications and to achieve immediate use of the catheter, we developed a new laparoscopic technique for catheter placement. A total of 12 consecutive patients with end-stage renal failure(More)
BACKGROUND Postoperative fluid collection in the space left behind the dissected hernia sac in laparoscopic herniorraphy puts the surgeon in a dilemma as to whether it is a recurrence or a seroma, and it is not always easily judged only by physical examination (PE). Another important issue is what kind of seroma can be accepted as a complication of surgery.(More)
INTRODUCTION Resveratrol (RSV) is a natural polyphenolic compound found in grape skins and the red wine which improves histological reorganization of the regenerating tissue in dermal wound healing. Since anastomotic healing possesses paramount importance to prevent complications in colorectal surgery, the present study is aimed to evaluate the effect of(More)
Simvastatin is a 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A reductase inhibitor commonly known as a cholesterol-lowering drug with additional pleiotropic effects. Also, it is demonstrated that it prevents postoperative peritoneal adhesions in rat. This study was designed to assess its effects on the healing process of colonic anastomosis. Thirty-two male Wistar(More)
BACKGROUND Starting continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) immediately after insertion of a peritoneal dialysis catheter is essential in end-stage renal disease (ESRD). In relation to the insertion methods, various mechanical and infectious complications may arise. In this study, we aimed to compare early complications of the laparoscopic(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS This study was designed to determine whether there exists a difference between in vivo and in vitro measurements of bursting pressure (BP) of experimental intestinal anastomosis studied in Wistar-albino rats. METHODOLOGY In the first group (n=8), the BP was measured using in vivo method without detaching the adhesions around the(More)
Surgeon inexperience has been defined as a significant predictor of deleterious outcome in thyroid surgery; however, the safety of training programs in which residents are the primary surgeons is controversial. The objective of this prospective study was to compare the complication rates of total thyroidectomy (TT) performed by residents with those of TT(More)
In this retrospective study, we evaluated the results of 91 locally advanced breast cancer (LABC) patients (30 patients in stage IIIA - 33.0%, 61 patients in stage IIIB - 67.0%) who had been treated with different neoadjuvant chemotherapy regimens. Forty-three (47.3%) patients treated with FAC (5-Fluorouracil, doxorubicin, cyclophosphamide) or CA(More)
