Depending on the type of cancer and how early the patient is referred before chemotherapy, there may nor may not be sufficient time to wait for the menstrual period to initiate ovarian stimulation for embryo or oocyte freezing. We have previously reported a “Random Start Controlled Ovarian Stimulation”(RSCOH) protocol where females with breast cancer were(More)
The aim of this article was to evaluate the clinical, endocrine, and cardiovascular disease risk profile differences among main polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) phenotypes. One hundred and thirty-nine consecutive women were included in the study. Body mass index (BMI), serum follicle stimulating hormone (FSH), luteinizing hormone (LH), progesterone,(More)
PURPOSE To compare the 24-h IOP reductions induced by latanoprost, travoprost, and bimatoprost in eyes with exfoliation syndrome (XFS) associated with ocular hypertension (OH). METHODS This was a prospective, randomized, single masked, and parallel design study with 15 patients in each treatment group. After washout of any previous medications, each(More)
The aim of this study is to evaluate the fibrocystic breast disease rates and its association with different clinical, endocrine and metabolic parameters between main polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) phenotypes. One hundred thirty two consecutive women were included in the study. Body mass index, serum follicle-stimulating hormone, luteinizing hormone (LH),(More)
Subchorionic haemorrhage in the 1st trimester of pregnancy can be seen in some patients and the significance of it is controversial. In this study, subchorionic haemorrhage was found to be significantly associated with increased risk of miscarriage and IUGR. On the other hand, we did not see a significant relation between pre-term labour and subchorionic(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical features and health quality profile differences between infertile women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) phenotypes and women with unexplained infertility. MATERIAL AND METHODS The WHOQOL-BREF were administered in a cross-sectional survey to 132 women diagnosed with PCOS (study group) and(More)
OBJECTIVES To report our experience with different management approaches to treat postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) due to uterine atony with reference to need for hysterectomy. METHODS A retrospective study of data of all women who delivered in Dr. Sami Ulus Medical and Research Hospital between April 2010 and April 2013 was collected from the department's(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine whether postmenopausal women with vasomotor symptoms have a lower bone mineral density (BMD) and a higher carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT) than those without vasomotor symptoms. METHODS Postmenopausal women with (n=87) or without (n=117) vasomotor symptoms who did not receive hormone therapy were included. The CIMT and BMD were(More)
AIM It is unknown which phenotype of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) has a greater metabolic risk and how to detect this risk. The aim of this study was therefore to compare the incidence of metabolic syndrome (MetS) and metabolic risk profile (MRP) for different phenotypes. METHODS A total of 100 consecutive newly diagnosed PCOS women in a tertiary(More)
AIM To determine the utility of elastosonography (ES) combined to cervical length measurement to predict preterm labor. METHODS One hundred twenty-seven women with pregnancies between 21 to 36 weeks of gestation without any risk factor for preterm labor were included in the study. All subjects underwent sonographic evaluation including fetal biometry,(More)
