PURPOSE The purpose of the study was to describe computed tomography (CT) and ultrasonography findings in superior mesenteric artery syndrome (SMAS). MATERIALS AND METHODS The study was performed on 89 CT examinations. Ultrasonography was performed on 32 and barium study was performed on four of these subjects. Group A consisted of cases with one or more(More)
BACKGROUND The wound is ischemic in nature. Chronic steroid administration impairs wound healing by changing enzymes in the glycolytic pathway. Carnitine supplementation may help to restore the energy deficiency caused by chronic steroid administration in the wound. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of carnitine on impaired wound healing. (More)
The HELLP-syndrome (haemolysis, elevated liver enzymes, low platelets) is associated with pre-eclampsia and may cause subcapsular liver haematomas. When hepatic rupture occurs the mortality of mother and unborn is high. Rupture remains a surgical emergency with control of bleeding based on trauma principles. We report a case and discuss the diagnosis and(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the effects of laparotomy, and insufflation of carbon dioxide and air, on the immune system in rats. DESIGN Randomised laboratory study. SETTING Teaching hospital, Turkey. ANIMALS 77 Wistar rats randomly allocated to 2 groups one of which was sensitised with dinitrofluorobenzene (DNFB, n = 43) and one of which was not (n = 34). (More)
PURPOSE There are many methods described for the treatment of sacrococcygeal pilonidal sinus disease, and none of them has been accepted as an optimal modality. Plastic procedures have some advantages, such as short duration of hospitalization, quick healing time, low risk of wound infection, and lower recurrence rates. Our choice is Limberg flap repair; we(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effects of laparotomy and CO2 insufflation on wound healing in a murine incisional wound healing model. METHODS Seventy-two male Swiss Albino mice were randomly allocated into three groups of control, laparotomy and CO2 insufflation. A transverse skin incision of 15 mm was made in the dorsum of(More)
Three cases of leiomyoma of the small bowel presenting with recurrent gastrointestinal bleeding diagnosed angiographically in the preoperative period, are discussed. Selective visceral angiography seems to be the most sensitive radiological examination. New types of enteroscopes are being developed.
Surgery induces release of neuroendocrine hormones (cortisol), cytokines (interleukin-6: IL-6, tumour necrosis factor-alpha: TNF-alpha), acute phase proteins (C-reactive protein: CRP, leptin). We studied the effects of general and spinal anaesthesia on stress response to haemorrhoidectomy. Patients were assigned to general and spinal anaesthesia groups (n =(More)
AIM To compare the effects of intratracheal general anesthesia (ITGA) and regional (saddle block) anesthesia on leptin, C-reactive protein (CRP), and cortisol blood concentrations during anorectal surgery. METHODS Fifty-eight patients suffering from hemorrhoidal disease, pilonidal sinus, anal fissure, or anal fistula were included the study. Patients were(More)
