This study aimed to investigate homogeneity disorders of ventricular repolarization and atrial conduction via QT dispersion and P-wave dispersion in children with congenital heart disease (CHD) and pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). Three groups of 20 each were generated and involved in this study. The first group included 20 children with both CHD and(More)
BACKGROUND The measurements of left and right ventricular functions change after birth due to the influence of several hemodynamic changes upon the immature myocardium. AIM The aim of this study was to investigate the changes in left (LV) and right ventricular (RV) functions of healthy term newborns using conventional and Doppler echocardiography during a(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study is to evaluate the cardiac functions of term small for gestational age (SGA) babies with mild growth retardation by echocardiography during the postnatal period. METHODS AND RESULTS Thirty term SGA (2271±207 g/38-41 weeks (mean 39.5 weeks)) and 30 term AGA (3298±338 g/38-41 weeks (mean 39 weeks)) newborns as the control(More)
BACKGROUND Syncope is defined as transient loss of consciousness and muscle tone, usually of short duration. Noncardiac causes of syncope are classified as orthostatic intolerance syndromes (OIS). QT and QTc (corrected QT) dispersions are the measurements of myocardial instability and show predisposition to arrhythmias. In this study; clinical findings, QT(More)
The authors review the cases of 95 patients with extradural hematoma managed at Gazi Hospital in the last 4 years. The common factors in craniocerebral traumas, the time interval between admittance and trauma, the interval between admittance and operation, and the location of hematomas are determined. The arterial origins demonstrated at operation in(More)
OBJECTIVE Type 1 diabetes in children predicts a broad range of later health problems including an increased risk of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. This study aimed to evaluate whether nocturnal hypertension and impaired nocturnal dipping affect atherosclerosis in children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes and to investigate the relationship(More)
Central Nervous System (CNS) involvement during the course of Brucella infection is a rare clinical condition. In this article, a patient with a progressive paraparesis syndrome with spasticity, who was treated by medical methods and surgical intervention is analysed. This patient suffered from spinal cord compression in the thoracal region caused by a(More)
OBJECTIVES Obesity and hypertension are associated with structural and functional cardiac change in children and adults. The aim of the study is to evaluate the effect of hypertension and obesity on left ventricular geometric patterns and cardiac functions assessed by conventional and Doppler echocardiography. METHODS Four hundred and thirty obese(More)
