PURPOSE This study was designed to determine the tissue levels of reactive oxygen radicals in caustic esophageal burns in a rat model. METHODS Forty rats were divided into four groups of 10 animals each. The control rats were uninjured in group A, and the others were injured rats in groups B, C, and D. Through a median laparatomy incision, a 1.5-cm(More)
To investigate the efficacy of antioxidant therapy on collagen synthesis in corrosive esophageal burns, 110 Sprague-Dawley rats were divided into five groups of 22 animals each. A standard esophageal caustic burn was produced by 1 ml of 10% sodium hydroxide solution for the rats in groups B to E; group A was instilled only with 0.9% saline after preparation(More)
Lesions of the groin include hernia, hydrocele, spermatic cord cyst, undescended testes, lymphadenopathy, and abscess. Hydatid cysts are endemic in certain regions of the world. They are usually located in the liver, lung, spleen, brain, and kidney. Although many uncommon locations have been reported, hydatid disease has been reported 3 times in the(More)
The present study was designed to establish the safety and efficacy of ultrasound-guided percutaneous drainage in the treatment of hepatic hydatid cysts in children. A total of 14 cysts in eight patients were drained under aseptic conditions and continuous ultrasound guidance. An 18-G needle was used for puncture and silver nitrate solution as the(More)
The metabolic response to surgical stress is a nonspecific increase in hepatic synthesis of some specialized acute-phase proteins and a decrease in plasma concentrations of visceral proteins following surgical trauma. This study was undertaken determine which specific proteins were the better clinical indices in monitoring the metabolic response to surgical(More)
Currently, no serum marker has proved helpful in diagnosing intestinal ischemia and reperfusion (I/R) injury. An experimental study was conducted to determine the value of serum D-lactate in detecting intestinal I/R injury. Thirty New Zealand White rabbits were divided into three groups of 10 animals each: sham-operation controls (S); I/R; and I/R plus(More)
PURPOSE This study aimed to determine the histopathologic changes in ureteral walls (UWs) in children with vesicoureteral reflux (VUR). METHODS Twenty ureteral specimens taken from children were divided into 2 groups, refluxing (R) and control (C) groups, each containing 10 specimens. Wall thickness of the ureter, tunica muscularis of the ureter, mucosal(More)
Recurrent abdominal pain (RAP) is a significant problem in the pediatric population, and there has been much recent interest in the role that Helicobacter pylori (Hp) might play in this disorder. In this case control study, the authors aimed to determine whether Hp is an agent responsible for RAP, and to assess fasting gastrin concentrations in children(More)
Potatoes were irrigated at three growth stages: (1) planting-stolon initiation. (2) stolon initiation-tuber bulking, and (3) tuber bulking, when available soil water dropped to 25%, 50% and 75%, bringing it up to field capacity; and irrigation ceased 0, 10 and 20 days before maturity. Significant increases in specific gravity, dry matter, starch content,(More)
This study examined the differential diagnosis of inguinoscrotal masses and true hermaphroditism as well as incarcerated inguinal hernia in the differential diagnosis of abnormal inguinoscrotal masses. Inguinoscrotal masses are a rare presentation of true hermaphroditism. A child with an inguinoscrotal mass of the right groin and penoscrotal hypospadias was(More)
