Lung cancer, which is mainly affected by environmental factors, is a lethal malignancy. It is also important to investigate the effect of genetic factors on lung cancer aetiology. In this study, we aimed to investigate the distribution of CYP1A1*2C, GSTT1 and GSTM1 polymorphisms in Turkish lung cancer patients to determine whether any promoting effect of(More)
Human hepatocyte growth factor (hHGF) is the most potent mitogen identified for alveolar type II cells, and may have other important functions in the repair of the alveolar epithelium and compensatory lung growth. A study was conducted to evaluate the changes of serum hHGF levels in patients who underwent thoracic surgical procedures. The patients comprised(More)
BACKGROUND Lymph node metastases are significant prognostic factors in localized non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Nodal micrometastases may not be detected using current histological methods. AIM To determine the accuracy and role of sentinel lymph nodes (SLNs) in patients with NSCLC. METHODS Intraoperative technetium-99m (Tc) sulphur colloid SLN(More)
BACKGROUND Tracheal stenosis and dehiscence of anastomosis due to excessive tension are well-known problems after long-segment tracheal resections. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of the W-plasty technique to prevent these two complications. METHODS Animals were divided into a study and a control group. Each group consisted of 6(More)
BACKGROUND Pleurodesis is used in the treatment of spontaneous pneumothorax or refractory pleural effusions of different etiologies. Several agents have been employed, but many questions remain unanswered about their effectiveness and toxicity. Use of autologous blood pleurodesis in clinical practice has been described in the literature without any clear(More)
OBJECTIVES Patients diagnosed with axillary hyperhidrosis can face psychosocial issues that can ultimately hinder their quality of life both privately and socially. The routine treatment for axillary hyperhidrosis is T3-T4 sympathectomy, but compensatory sweating is a serious side effect that is commonly seen with this approach. This study was designed to(More)
OBJECTIVES Although the transaxillary route appears to be the optimal approach in patients with thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS), the effect of clinical features on surgical outcome remains unclear. We conducted a study to determine the clinical predictors of surgical outcome in patients with TOS. METHODS We examined the data charts of patients with TOS who(More)
OBJECTIVES Pulmonary hydatid disease is a parasitic disease with a high prevalence in low-middle income countries. We report four patients who were treated surgically using video-assisted thoracoscopy (VATS). METHODS All patients were diagnosed with clinical and radiological findings on chest X-ray and computed tomography. Complete thoracoscopic removal(More)

Hydatid disease is a common parasitic disease in areas where sheep and cattle are raised and is currently endemic in the eastern and southwestern parts of Turkey. Patients with hydatid cysts typically present with cough, chest pain, dyspnea, hemoptysis, or allergic reactions. When ruptured, these cysts may cause hemoptysis, dyspnea, and hydatid thorax.(More)
