Reports in the rehabilitation literature suggest that patients with trans-femoral amputation ambulate well after suitable prosthetic treatment. The effects of exercise protocols on function, however, have not been documented in this population. This study was conducted to compare the outcome of traditional and proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF)(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of the study was to investigate the putative neuroprotective effect of Nigella sativa oil (NSO) treatment against subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) in rats. METHODS To induce SAH, rats were injected with 0.3 ml blood into their cisterna magna. Male Wistar albino rats were divided as control, vehicle-treated SAH, and NSO-treated (0.2 ml/kg,(More)
AIM The purpose of this study was to determine the possible protective effects of captopril treatment against apoptosis in the brain induced by burn injury. MATERIAL AND METHODS Under ether anaesthesia, Wistar albino rats (200-250 g) were exposed to a 900C (burn) or 250C (sham) water bath for 10 s. The ACE group was treated with i.p. 10 mg/kg captopril(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the role of endogenous neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS) on brain injury after burn and the effects of the captopril. METHODS Wistar albino rats (200-250 g) were exposed on the dorsal surface to 90°C (burn) or 25°C (sham) water for 10 s. The ACE group was treated with intraperitoneal 10 mg/kg captopril immediately after burn(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to assess the possible protective effect of proanthocyanidin against cerulein-induced acute pancreatic inflammation (AP) and oxidative injury. METHODS Sprague-Dawley rats were pretreated with proanthocyanidine (100 mg/kg, orally) or saline 15 min before cerulein was given by 20 µg/kg subcutaneously at 1-h intervals(More)
The objective of this study was to examine the potential radioprotective properties of propylthiouracil (PTU)-induced hypothyroidism against oxidative organ damage induced by irradiation. Sprague-Dawley rats were pre-treated with saline or PTU (10 mg/kg i.p.) for 15 days, and were then exposed to whole-body irradiation (800 cGy). A group of rats were(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the degree of pelvic tilt in the three dimensions, the trunk muscle strength and effects on gait in trans-tibial amputated patients. This study comprised of 22 unilateral trans-tibial amputated patients who were seen at the authors' Prosthetics and Orthotics Laboratory for the purpose of prosthetic provision.(More)
