OBJECTIVES To determine the association of atherogenic index of plasma (AIP), the logarithm of molar ratio of triglyceridemia to high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (TG/HDL-cholesterol) with cardiometabolic disorders was investigated in a sample of the Turkish population. METHODS A total of 2676 middle-aged adults were prospectively evaluated with a(More)
OBJECTIVES We tested the hypothesis that metabolic disturbances in people with schizophrenia exist as a part of the schizophrenic syndrome, even when the antipsychotic drug effect is eliminated. We aimed to determine the prevalence of metabolic syndrome among patients with schizophrenia who were antipsychotic drug-naive or drug-free and their siblings for(More)
Alpha thalassemia (α-thal) is one of the most common genetic disorders in the world. It is characterized by the absence or reduced expression of α-globin genes. The frequency of α-thal mutations in the province of Hatay in South Turkey is unknown. Therefore, in the present study, we aimed to investigate the spectrum of α-thal mutations in this province.(More)
PURPOSE We aimed to demonstrate the success and reliability of a novel puncture, aspiration, injection, and reaspiration (PAIR) technique in liver hydatid cysts. METHODS Percutaneous treatment with ultrasonographic guidance was performed in 493 hepatic hydatid cysts in 374 patients. Patients were treated with a new PAIR technique by single puncture method(More)
The aim of this study is to investigate the association between neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and severity of coronary atherosclerosis. A total of 172 patients undergoing coronary angiography were included in the study. Control group consisted of patients with normal coronary arteries. Patients with coronary stenosis were divided into 2 groups by use(More)
Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) is characterized by recurrent attacks of fever and serositis. Typical attacks of FMF last 3 to 5 days. Fever and myalgia are not always improved by colchicine therapy and sometimes require steroid therapy. We present two cases of severe prolonged febrile myalgia where steroid therapy was needed.
The aim of the study was to assess the factors associated with the anticoagulation treatment in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). A total of 2242 consecutive patients who had been admitted with AF on their electrocardiogram were included in the study. After excluding valvular AF, 1745 patients with nonvalvular AF were analyzed. Mean CHA2DS2-VASc score(More)
OBJECTIVES Two-dimensional (2D) echocardiographic approaches are not sufficient to determine the origin of paravalvular leak (PVL) that occurs after prosthetic mitral valve replacement (MVR). In this study, we investigated the role of real-time three-dimensional transesophageal echocardiography (RT-3D TEE) in detecting the origin and size of PVL occurring(More)
OBJECTIVE In this study, we aimed to explore the association between platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio (PLR) and the severity of atherosclerosis in coronary artery disease (CAD). METHODS Clinical and laboratory data of 388 patients who underwent coronary angiography were evaluated retrospectively. Gensini score, which indicates the severity of atherosclerosis,(More)
BACKGROUND Transfusion-dependent patients are more prone to acquiring various transfusion-transmitted infections such as hepatitis B (HBV), hepatitis C (HCV) and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). The aim of the study was to investigate the prevalence of these infections in patients with thalassemia and with sickle cell anemia (SCA) receiving multiple(More)
