BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Oxidative stress is believed to play a role in the development of preeclampsia (PE). It is known that an increased cystatin C level is also associated with PE. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between oxidative stress parameters and cystatin C levels in patients with severe PE. MATERIAL AND METHODS(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of our study was to compare propofol with propofol-ketamine combination for sedation and also to compare related complications in children undergoing auditory brainstem response (ABR) testing. METHODS Sixty ASA I-II patients aged between 1 and 13 years of age were sedated for ABR testing. Propofol 1.5mg/kg was used in group P (n=30), and(More)
BACKGROUND Anesthetic agents might considerably influence maternal-fetal oxidative stress and antioxidants during cesarean section (CS). The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of desflurane and sevoflurane on oxidative stress parameters both in mothers and newborns undergoing elective CS. MATERIALS AND METHODS Eighty ASA physical status(More)
PURPOSE Propofol and ketamine have become progressively popular in electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) anesthesia, although propofol shortened seizure duration and ketamine might cause cardiotoxicity, psychotic episodes, and delayed recovery. Ketofol is a combination of ketamine and propofol, and the current study was designed to evaluate the effect of(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Adding novel adjunctive drugs like gabapentinoids to multimodal analgesic regimen might be reasonable for lessening postoperative pain scores, total opioid consumption and side effects after percutaneous nephrolithotomy. We aimed to evaluate the effect of pregabalin on postoperative pain scores, analgesic consumption and renal(More)
BACKGROUND Hydatid cyst secretes numerous immunomodulatory molecules to the host, and the host reacts these molecules by activating immune response. It is also known that, immune cells generally produce more oxidative products. AIM In this study, we aimed to evaluate the antioxidant enzyme using catalase (CAT) and oxidant enzyme using lipid hydroperoxide(More)
