We aimed to evaluate the effects of ovulation induction on Ki67 expression and dysplasia scores of female rat ovaries. Twenty female Wistar rats were randomized either to receive 150 IU/kg human menopausal gonadotropin on estrous day 2 and 75 IU/kg human chorionic gonadotropin on the day of preestrous (induction group, n= 10) or saline as placebo on the(More)
Glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) is used as a marker of astrocyte response to various central nervous system injuries. In the present study, the effects of chronic ethanol administration on GFAP immunoreactivity were evaluated in astrocytes of the adult optic nerve head. The results demonstrated that ethanol exposure significantly and dramatically(More)
Many cases of intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR) are the result of placental and fetal tissue insufficiency. Insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) is known to play a role in placental and fetal growth. An immunocytochemical study was performed to localize IGF-I peptides in human placenta and umbilical cords of normal (n = 3) and IUGR (n = 3) fetuses. The(More)
AIM The cardioprotective effects of thoracal epidural anesthesia (TEA) are induced by the expression of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and inducible nitric oxide synthase (i-NOS) in cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) surgery. When general anaesthesia (GA) is combined with TEA during coronary artery bypass graft, we investigated whether TEA together(More)
In a dissection performed in our department, we observed multiple variations of the azygos venous system. The hemiazygos vein was absent. The posterior 8th, 9th, and 10th intercostal veins united and their common trunk crossed the vertebral column obliquely lying anterior to the aorta and posterior to the esophagus and opening into the azygos vein at the(More)
In the present study, the effects of chronic ethanol (ETOH) treatment on the glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) immunoreactivity was investigated in adult rat brains. ETOH were administered as increasing concentrations of 2.4%-7.2% (v/v) gradually for 21 days. Immunocytochemistry revealed that chronic-ETOH treatment increased synthesis of GFAP. The(More)
AIM The aim of the paper was to investigate whether thoracic epidural anesthesia (TEA) together with general anaesthesia (GA) play a role on apoptosis in humans before cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB), before aortic cross clamp (ACC) and at 15 min after ACC release (after ischemia and reperfusion). METHODS Eighty patients scheduled for elective CABG were(More)
Cell-cell and cell-matrix adhesion molecules play an important role in morphogenesis, cell signaling and are involved in cell proliferation, cell death, cell polarization and differentiation. In the present study, we investigated N-CAM and pan-cadherin expression in small intestine of intrauterine growth-retarded (IUGR) newborn rats after maternal protein(More)
BACKGROUND Optimization of saphenous vein patency for myocardial revascularization. OBJECTIVE The goal of this study was to present the no-touch technique of saphenous vein preparation. This technique consists of harvesting the vein with a pedicle of surrounding tissue, which protects the vein from distension pressure. METHODS We performed a(More)
