BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to investigate the correlation between plasma and tissue oxidative stress and the antioxidative response, by measuring malon dialdehyde (MDA) and glutathione (GSH) in late sepsis induced by cecal ligation and perforation. MATERIALS AND METHODS A prospective, randomized, controlled experimental study in rats was done.(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of the present study was to investigate the effects of the stress response on plasma insulin, cortisol, glucose, and urinary vanilmandelic acid during weaning and after extubation, using pressure support (PS), continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) and T-piece modes. METHODS Sixty patients were randomly divided into three groups(More)
BACKGROUND This study was devised to compare the effects of sevoflurane and desflurane anaesthesia on the cytokine response. METHODS Sixty ASA I-II patients, scheduled for tympanoplasty, were randomly allocated to be anaesthetized with either sevoflurane or desflurane at maintenance inspiratory concentrations of 1-1.5 MAC of either agent. Blood samples(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)
Gastrointestinal bleeding is a life-threatening manifestation of intestinal tuberculosis that is generally attributed to oozing of blood from the mucosal ulcers. We report a case of intestinal tuberculosis presenting with massive upper gastrointestinal bleeding from jejunal artery pseudoaneurysm diagnosed with angiography and successfully embolizated by(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE To compare the effects of sevoflurane and desflurane anaesthesia on lipid peroxidation. METHODS We studied 40 healthy patients undergoing elective laparoscopic cholecystectomy. Patients were randomly allocated to be anaesthetized either with sevoflurane (n = 20) or desflurane (n = 20). Anaesthesia was maintained with inspiratory(More)
Mucopolysaccharidoses (MPSs) are a group of metabolic diseases transmitted in an autosomal recessive fashion. MPSs are due to deficiencies of the specific enzymes responsible for the catabolism of dermatan sulfate, heparin sulfate, and keratan sulfate, resulting in the accumulation of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs). MPSs have a chronic, progressive course with(More)
INTRODUCTION Chronic reflux of gastric content to the esophagus causes retrosternal burning, pain, and regurgitation, and results in histopathologic changes that may culminate in adenocarcinoma. Insufficiency of the lower esophageal sphincter and hiatal hernia are the two principal causative factors. In this paper, we present the early results of a new(More)
