BACKGROUND Congenital anomalies of the coronary arteries are rarely encountered in patients undergoing cardiac catheterization. In patients undergoing coronary angioplasty or cardiac surgery, angiographic recognition of coronary anomalies is important for the proper management of these patients. METHOD We retrospectively reviewed the records of 12,844(More)
Pilonidal sinus can not be mentioned as a minor surgery procedure because of high recurrence rate, high morbidity and long disability period. In our clinic between the years of 1988-1991, 92 pilonidal sinus cases were treated primarily with Limberg's flap technique. Only in two cases, late wound healing was detected, no other complications and no(More)
BACKGROUND Syndrome X is defined as typical angina pectoris, positive treadmill exercise test, negative intravenous ergonovine test, and angiographically normal coronary arteries. HYPOTHESIS In the present study, we investigated the anti-ischemic and antianginal effects of nisoldipine and ramipril in patients with syndrome X. METHODS After 2 weeks of(More)
BACKGROUND Inferior acute myocardial infarctions (AMI) have better in-hospital prognosis than do anterior AMI. Authors of several studies reported that patients with inferior AMI complicated by atrioventricular block, concomitant precordial ST-segment depression and involvement of right ventricle have larger infarctions and a worse prognoses than do(More)
BACKGROUND Advanced atrioventricular block is a frequent complication in patients with inferior acute myocardial infarction (AMI); in patients in hospital, it often occurs concurrently with other complications and is associated with high mortality. Very little information is available about early and late advanced atrioventricular block in inferior AMI. We(More)
The aim of this study was to use transthoracic Doppler echocardiographic (TTE) imaging methods to identify cardiac dysfunction, an indicator of subclinical atherosclerosis in asymptomatic systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) patients in terms of cardiac effects. This study involved 80 patients: a study group (n = 50) and control group (n = 30). They were(More)
BACKGROUND Gastric tonometry is a minimally invasive device by which the adequacy of splanchnic blood flow is assessed indirectly. Patients undergoing major abdominal surgery are under the risk of developing splanchnic ischemia. The aim of this study was to compare gastric intramucosal pH and hemodynamic effects between sevoflurane and TIVA achieved by(More)
AIM Myocardial performance index (MPI) is a well known prognostic parameter in acute myocardial infarction (AMI) patients, which has been used to assess global cardiac functions. In this study, we aimed to evaluate the corelation between the MPI levels obtained by PW doppler and Tissue doppler ultrasonography with reperfusion in AMI patients. METHODS(More)
