BACKGROUND Ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury of tissues is a common problem that cardiovascular surgeons are faced with. Suppression of inflammation, which plays an important role in the pathogenesis of I/R injury, may reduce this damage. The aim of this study is to investigate the protective effects of methylprednisolone (MP)--a potent anti-inflammatory(More)
Infundibular stenosis may develop secondary to ventricular septal defect, and transannular patch plasty can affect mortality and morbidity rates. Therefore, dextroposition of the aorta has been investigated in order to eliminate discrepancies in the literature. Figures and illustrations from the selected references have been investigated and "actual(More)
Background Anticoagulant treatment is recently being replaced by more aggressive endovascular modalities in the management of acute deep vein thrombosis (DVT). These techniques have been promoted to improve thrombus removal, prolong venous patency, prevent venous insufficiency, and reduce post thrombotic syndrome. The aim of the present study is to overview(More)
OBJECTIVE Complex surgical exposures to upper extremity injuries required for conventional surgery correlate with a high morbidity and mortality. We present our results with conventional surgery following injuries of the subclavian and axillary vessels. METHODS Between November 2007 and March 2012, 29 cases with subclavian-axillary vascular injury were(More)
