In this study, in 131 men aged 20–75 years, we investigated correlations between bone mineral density (BMD) in the lumbar spine and femoral neck and endogenous factors (age, body mass index) as well as exogenous factors (calcium intake, physical activity, smoking, caffeine, socioeconomic and educational levels). The age had a negative effect on femoral neck(More)
AIM The aim of the study was the electrophysiological evaluation of the cremasteric reflex after experimental testicular torsion. MATERIAL AND METHODS Ten male Wistar rats were enrolled into the study. Genitofemoral nerve (GFN) motor conduction and cremasteric reflex (CR) responses were evaluated electrophysiologically after being subjected to anesthesia(More)
Anticoagulant drugs are used to reduce the incidence of thromboembolic events in patients at risk. However, minor and major bleeding complications may occur during anticoagulation therapy. Femoral neuropathy secondary to retroperitoneal hematoma is a well known complication of anticoagulant drugs. However, treatment of these patients is still controversial,(More)
The association of familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) or ankylosing spondylitis (AS), most commonly with negative HLA-B27 antigen, was described in several previous reports, although the pathogenic mechanism of this association still remains unknown. Herein we report an uncommon association of FMF with HLA-B27(More)
AIM Genitofemoral nerve (GFN) injury may occur because of chronic pressure of hernia sac or surgical intervention. A prospective study was performed to evaluate GFN electrophysiologically in children with inguinal hernia repair. METHODS Children with inguinal hernia were evaluated for GFN electrophysiologically before and after (3-6 months(More)
PURPOSE This study aimed to evaluate the effect of platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) on peripheral nerve regeneration on the sciatic nerve of rats by using functional, histopathologic, and electrophysiologic analyses. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty female Wistar rats were divided randomly into 3 experimental groups. In group 1 (G1), which was the control group,(More)
AIM Absent cremasteric reflex (CR) is a well known but not reliable sign of testicular torsion. We hypothesized that CR can also be altered in other causes of acute scrotum in children. An experimental study was performed to evaluate the clinical and electrophysiological features of CR in orchitis. METHOD Eighteen Wistar albino rats were allocated into(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM The aim of this study was to electrophysiologically evaluate the effect of increased intraabdominal pressure (IAP) on genitofemoral nerve (GFN) motor conduction. MATERIALS AND METHODS Seven Wistar albino rats were included. After anesthetization, latency and duration of GFN conduction was recorded with a needle-probe at rest. IAP was(More)
