The aim was to evaluate the clinical findings of patients who admitted to the hospital with the diagnosis of grayanotoxin/mad honey poisoning. Thirty-three patients were included in this study. Three patients were female (9%) and the others male (91%). Median age of patients was 52 (42-68). The most frequently observed findings were sinus bradycardia (91%),(More)
Glanzmann's thrombasthenia is a rare autosomal recessive disease characterized by potentially major mucocutaneous complications and nose bleeds. It is considered hazardous for these surgical patients to conceive, with a high risk of urgent surgery. The treatment of bleeding or prevention of hemorrhage for surgery or invasive procedures is based on platelet(More)
Reversal of neuromuscular blockage induced by steroidal neuromuscular blocking agents such as rocuronium can be achieved using normal dose of sugammadex, which has been shown to be very effective for such reversal. In this study, we determined the effects of sugammadex on calcineurin immunoreactivity by examining the histopathological and histochemical(More)
BACKGROUND This study investigated the effect of injection of rocuronium or sugammadex alone and rocuronium + sugammadex on urea, creatinine, electrolyte levels, and histopathological findings in rats. METHODS Thirty-six Sprague-Dawley male rats were divided to receive intravenously 16 or 96 mg/kg sugammadex, 1 mg/kg rocuronium, 1 mg/kg rocuronium + 16(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the long-term and high-dose application of ketamine on the liver by employing histologic and biochemical methods. A total of 30 male rats were randomly assigned to control and four treatment groups (n: 6). Saline for control group and different doses of ketamine for four treatment groups (40, 60, 80 and 100 mg(More)
Rocuronium has been associated with muscle weakness when administered in prolonged infusions. The effect of sugammadex and rocuronium together on muscle is unknown. In this study, we examined the effects of rocuronium and sugammadex, and the complex formed by these agents, on cardiac and diaphragmatic muscle cells. Forty-two Sprague–Dawley male rats were(More)
We investigated the effect of rocuronium- and sugammadex-induced mast cell increase and degranulation in rat portal triads. Forty-two rats, in six groups, received either rocuronium 1 mg.kg(-1); sugammadex 15 mg.kg(-1); sugammadex 100 mg.kg(-1); rocuronium 1 mg.kg(-1) and 5 min later, sugammadex 15 mg.kg(-1); rocuronium 1 mg.kg(-1) and 5 min later,(More)
We hypothesized that cooling hyperbaric bupivacaine from 23 to 5 °C may limit the intrathecal spread of bupivacaine and therefore increase the success rate of unilateral spinal anesthesia and decrease the rate of hemodynamic complications. A hundred patients scheduled for elective unilateral inguinal hernia surgery were randomly allocated to receive 1.8 ml(More)
OBJECTIVE To report a successful vaginal delivery using slow infusion of epidural analgesia in a patient with both severe aortic stenosis and insufficiency. CLINICAL PRESENTATION AND INTERVENTION A 26-year-old primigravid patient presented to our hospital for delivery. She had aortic stenosis and insufficiency due to rheumatic fever. Although the(More)
