Abdominal ultrasound examination showed an 8-cm-long intussuscepted intestinal segment with a target sign. There was a 26 × 28 × 23 mm nonperistaltic anechoic cystic mass suggestive of a duplication cyst. At laparotomy, the ileocecal(More)
We utilized a newborn rat model of hypoxia/reoxygenation (H/R) that resembles human necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) to investigate the effects of omeprazole and/or gentamicin on the formation of free oxygen radicals (FOR) and bowel histopathology. For H/R, 1-day-old rats were placed into a chamber of 100% CO2 for 5 min, then they were reoxygenized for the(More)
A case of an incomplete Currarino triad is reported. The baby underwent an emergency laparotomy due to a life-threatening intestinal obstruction caused by severe rectal stenosis. During the posterosagittal anorectoplasty (PSARP), a presacral teratoma was identified and resected. The tumor recurred three times; she initially responded to chemotherapy, but(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to compare the sleep quality in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS); and to evaluate the relationship between sleep quality and pain, fatigue, depression, and disease activity in patients with RA and FMS. METHODS Forty RA, 40 FMS and 40 healthy controls were enrolled in the study.(More)
Peritoneal drainage in children with uncomplicated perforated appendicitis (UPA) is still controversial. Many pediatric surgeons prefer not to drain the peritoneal cavity in such cases. However, there is no randomized controlled study performed in children. We aimed to study the effects of peritoneal drainage in children with UPA in a randomized prospective(More)
Management of caustic ingestion in children is still controversial. In this study, we evaluate a minimally invasive management consisting of flexible endoscopy, balloon dilatation and intralesional steroid injection in children, with a history of caustic ingestion. Between April 2002 and January 2009, 350 (206 males and 144 females) children with a history(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine whether the sympathetic nervous system plays a role in the contralateral testicular deterioration encountered in varicocele. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty male Sprague-Dawley albino rats (28 days old) were divided equally into four treatment groups, i.e. (1) sham operation, (2) with varicocele, (3) treated by chemical sympathectomy(More)
Plummer-Vinson syndrome presents as a classical triad of dysphagia, iron deficiency anemia and upper esophageal web(s). The syndrome usually occurs in adults, and is rare in childhood. We report a case of this syndrome occurring in a 15-year-old boy. He presented with dysphagia and anemia. Radiological examination showed the presence of webs at the cervical(More)

METHODS Fifty-four children with SB and parents were included. The Functional Measure for Children (WeeFIM), Beck Depression Inventory (BDI), and Family Assessment Device (FAD) were used. RESULTS(More)
BACKGROUND Necrotising enterocolitis (NEC) causes a significant life-threatening gastrointestinal system (GIS) disease with severe mortality and morbidity, particularly in premature infants. Nitric oxide (NO) has many functions in the GIS. Therefore, in the present study, we evaluated the effects of NO in experimentally induced NEC of newborn 1-day-old rats(More)
