A double-blind, randomized trial with placebo control was planned to evaluate the effects of corticosteroids (betamethasone, dexamethasone, methylprednisolone) in approximately equivalent doses (8 mg dexamethasone/day), and to compare their effects with that of tenoxicam, an antiinflammatory drug, on both the edema and ecchymosis in open rhinoplasty with(More)
BACKGROUND Although some studies about the effects of steroids on surgical trauma in closed or combined (closed and open together) rhinoplasty have been reported in the literature, still more information is needed in order to enlighten rhinoplasty surgeons. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the anti-inflammatory activity of steroids administered in(More)
INTRODUCTION Ciprofloxacin and meropenem have effects on intestinal bacteria that are responsible for pancreatic infection, and on the basis of recent data it has been argued that probiotics, especially those used in the food industry, could improve efforts to prevent and treat secondary pancreatic infections by inhibiting bacterial translocation. AIMS To(More)
BACKGROUND Reperfusion injury is a phenomenon that occurs when tissues are subjected to ischaemia for a variable period of time, after which they are reperfused. Many factors have been implicated in the cause of reperfusion injury including free radicals and neutrophils. Caffeic acid (3,4-dihydroxycinnamic acid) phenethyl ester (CAPE) is an active component(More)
In this study, a web-based 3D virtual environment well known the Second Life (SL) that people can be connected from all over the world, has been introduced and investigated the benefits on the distance education (DE). In the SL 3D virtual environment, a hydroelectric power plant has been built to understand how to produce electricity, and also students can(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the triggering micro-organisms and the clinical as well as laboratory differences between Chlamydial and non-chlamydial reactive arthritis (ReA) in a prospective study on 98 patients with acute/subacute arthritis. An inciting organism was found in 42 patients. Eighteen of these were chlamydial. Fifty-seven percent of(More)
INTRODUCTION Translocation of bacteria from the gut is one of the most important factors in the development of septic complications and mortality in acute pancreatitis. AIMS To investigate whether S-methylisothiourea (SMT), taurine (TAU), and meropenem (MER) could effect bacterial translocation and the course of acute necrotizing pancreatitis. (More)
Inadequate blood perfusion and ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury in the surgical skin flap are believed to be the major factors that cause harmful changes within the tissue and vasculature, resulting in flap necrosis. Reactive oxygen radical species (ROS), in part, are believed to play an important role in this injury. Melatonin, in many physiological(More)
Tissue expansion is indicated in the reconstruction of various scalp defects when there is inadequate adjacent tissue to allow either primary closure of the defect or repair with a local flap. It is the most important armamentarium for aesthetic hair-bearing scalp reconstruction in cases of congenital or required defects. This technique was used(More)
