The purpose of this study was to evaluate the feasibility of multislice computed tomographic (MSCT) angiography as a noninvasive method for detecting ostial, proximal, and middle segment coronary stenosis or occlusion and anatomy in patients with transposition of the great arteries who had undergone arterial switch operation (ASO). Sixteen-detector-row MSCT(More)
To measure the median nerve (MN) stiffness by quantitative shear wave elastography (SWE) at the carpal tunnel inlet and to determine whether SWE can be used in the diagnosis of carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). The study included 37 consecutive patients (60 wrists) with a definitive diagnosis of CTS and 18 healthy volunteers (36 wrists). The MN cross-sectional(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was to present the long term results of primary tenodesis in the treatment of distal biceps tendon rupture. METHODS Patients previously treated for distal tendon rupture were evaluated. In all cases anatomical reattachment with a single-incision through the anterior approach was performed with either a screw and washer(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine the frequency of elevated systolic pulmonary artery pressure (sPAP) estimated by echocardiography in Behçet's syndrome (BS) patients with pulmonary artery involvement (PAI), in healthy controls and in diseased controls with systemic sclerosis (SSc), as well as in BS patients without PAI. METHODS We studied 3 groups of patients with(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to present an alternative technique for the pre-operative localisation of solely MRI-detected suspicious breast lesions using a computer-assisted MRI-guided radio-guided occult lesion localisation (ROLL) technique. METHODS Between January 2009 and June 2010, 25 females with a total of 25 suspicious breast lesions(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether the relative proportions of stromal to cellular components of pleomorphic adenomas have an effect on the shear elastic modulus determined by shear wave elastography (SWE). METHODS This study was approved by the Ethics Committee of our institution and performed between September 2011 and December(More)
Computed tomography-guided percutaneous transthoracic fine-needle aspiration biopsy of lung lesions is a well known diagnostic technique. Nevertheless, it has some complications; such as pneumothorax, intraparenchymal hemorrhage and hemoptysis, which are not rare. Air embolism is one of the rare but potentially fetal complications of this procedure. Herein,(More)
CONTEXT Cystic-cavernous lymphangioma is a rare cystic tumor especially for adults and pancreas. CASE REPORT We reported a case of a 33-year-old woman who presented with a visible and palpable abdominal mass found to be a huge lymphangioma of the pancreas. An abdominal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed a multiloculated, lobulated T1 hypo/hyper, T2(More)
