Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has been known to possess an efficacy in tissue regeneration. The aim of this study was to determine the role of PRP on post-operative adhesion formation in an experimental rat study. Thirty Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly divided into control, hyaluronic acid, and PRP treatment groups and operated on for uterine horn adhesion(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the effectiveness of topical lidocaine spray compared to a placebo for relieving pain during colposcopic cervical biopsies and endocervical curettage. METHODS This randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind study included patients with abnormal cervical cytologic results requiring colposcopy and directed cervical punch biopsy with(More)
Awareness of HPV by the target population is an important determinant of vaccine acceptance. The aim of this study is to evaluate the awareness of HPV infection and acceptability of the HPV vaccines among Turkish college students. College students aged 18–30 who were attending a large public university in Ankara participated in this study. The participants(More)
INTRODUCTION Malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumors (MPNSTs) are rare, up to one half of the MPNSTs occur in patients with neurofibromatosis type-1 (NF-1), while the rest are sporadic. Here, we present a 52-year-old woman with MPNST of the vulva without NF-1. We will discuss basics of the disease, treatment options and follow-up strategies. PRESENTATION(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the risk factors for appendiceal involvement in women with epithelial ovarian cancer (EOC) who underwent appendectomy at the time of initial surgery. MATERIAL AND METHODS Patients with a final diagnosis of EOC who underwent appendectomy at the time of initial surgery were evaluated retrospectively. Risk factors related to the(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the optimal cone size to achieve a reliable sensitivity and specificity for clear surgical margins after cold knife conization (CKC). MATERIAL AND METHODS The medical reports of patients who had high-grade cervical intraepithelial lesions, carcinoma in situ, or stage 1A1 microinvasive carcinoma in their CKC specimens between June(More)
AIM To determine utility of the frozen section (FS) in the operative management of endometrial pre-malignant lesions. MATERIALS AND METHODS We retrospectively analyzed patients who underwent abdominal hysterectomy with preoperative diagnosis of complex atypical endometrial hyperplasia (CAEH) and simple endometrial hyperplasia (SEH) between May 2007 and(More)
BACKGROUND The study aims to determine the detrimental effects of 7.5 mg/kg/day isotretinoin treatment on the anti-Mullerian hormone (AMH) levels in an experimental study to see whether the effects on ovarian reserve are reversible. METHODS Blood was sampled in 16 Sprague-Dawley albinos before any treatment to see baseline AMH levels. Then, the rats were(More)
Thank you for your interest in our experimental study entitled ‘‘A randomized controlled experimental study of the efficacy of platelet-rich plasma and hyaluronic acid for the prevention of adhesion formation in a rat uterine horn model’’ [1]. We read your comments on the article with great interest. We preferred to use the term ‘‘Round per minute (RPM)’’(More)
