The posterior inferior cerebellar artery (PICA) is normally a branch of the vertebral artery. In this rare case, the unilateral left vertebral artery continued its course as the left PICA, and an extremely small caliber left vertebral artery joined the righ vertebral artery to form the basilar artery. This rare feature of the PICA is demonstrated and its(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effect of chronically ethanol treatment on insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) synthesis in various adult brain regions using immunocytochemistry. METHODS We performed this study at the Faculty of Medicine, Kocaeli University, Kocaeli, Turkey from March 2006 to October 2007. The vascular perfusion was utilized to fix the adult(More)
OBJECTIVES The internal thoracic artery (ITA) is the preferred conduit for coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery. The authors investigated whether thoracic epidural anesthesia (TEA) as an adjunct to general anesthesia (GA) can increase the blood flow of the ITA. DESIGN A prospective randomized study. SETTING A university hospital. PARTICIPANTS(More)
We described a fetus who is delivered at 32.weeks of gestation by elective cesarian because of the fetal anhydria and unilateral hydronephrosis.A breech coming,1950 gr, 44 cm a newborn was delivered with multiple malformations and postpartum he didn't cry and siyanosis was appeared. After first interventions the newborns respiration didn't start and(More)
AIM The aim of the paper was to investigate whether thoracic epidural anesthesia (TEA) together with general anaesthesia (GA) play a role on apoptosis in humans before cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB), before aortic cross clamp (ACC) and at 15 min after ACC release (after ischemia and reperfusion). METHODS Eighty patients scheduled for elective CABG were(More)
In a dissection performed in our department, we observed multiple variations of the azygos venous system. The hemiazygos vein was absent. The posterior 8th, 9th, and 10th intercostal veins united and their common trunk crossed the vertebral column obliquely lying anterior to the aorta and posterior to the esophagus and opening into the azygos vein at the(More)
BACKGROUND Optimization of saphenous vein patency for myocardial revascularization. OBJECTIVE The goal of this study was to present the no-touch technique of saphenous vein preparation. This technique consists of harvesting the vein with a pedicle of surrounding tissue, which protects the vein from distension pressure. METHODS We performed a(More)
Disseminated candidiasis is relatively common in immunocompromised patients. The treatment protocol of these patients usually includes broad-spectrum antibiotics and also emprical antifungals initiated due to unresponsiveness to antibiotics. In this study the efficacies of caspofungin and meropenem - separately and together - in mice with disseminated(More)
