The patients were reevaluated 3 months, 6 months and yearly postoperatively. Coexisting preoperative symptoms of pelvic pain, urgency, nocturia and 'obstructed' micturition feeling were(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)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the association between nonreassuring fetal heart rate patterns during labor and umbilical cord nucleated red blood cell counts. Nucleated red blood cell data was collected prospectively from 41 singleton term neonates presented with nonreassuring fetal heart rate patterns and/or meconium stained amniotic fluid during(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of our study was to evaluate lipid peroxidation products and antioxidant enzyme activity in placental tissue and umbilical cord blood, as a marker for fetal hypoxia in patients in labor with nonreassuring fetal status. STUDY DESIGN Umbilical cord arterial blood and placental tissue samples were collected from 24 patients with term(More)
A Turkish family is described with two members suffering from familial amyloidotic polyneuropathy. Their transthyretin genes were examined using the polymerase chain reaction, and both patients possessed the met30 mutation in both of their transthyretin genes. In this family, only individuals who are homozygous for the met30 mutation have developed symptoms.
The aim of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and the tolerability of three classic antimuscarinic drugs used in the treatment of over active bladder syndrome using clinical data and quality of life tests, and to evaluate the parameters affecting the success of these drugs. A total of 90 patients with urge urinary incontinence were randomly allocated(More)
We report a case of ovarian cystic teratoma with an important growth during pregnancy and the sonographic appearance of intracystic multiple, mobile, polygonal structures called intracystic "fat balls." Due to the rapid growth of the lesion, which exceeded 15 cm in diameter, a right oophorectomy was performed. Histopathologic diagnosis confirmed the mature(More)
We report three maternal deaths which might be in possible association with the use of intravaginal dinoprostone for cervical ripening and induction of labor. All cases occurred at our institution between January 2006 and December 2007. Uterine atony and profuse bleeding followed by disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC), characterized by severe(More)
This study was conducted to determine the incidence and risk factors of fetal loss in threatened abortion after ultrasonographic detection of fetal cardiac activity in a low socioeconomic population. A total of 202 women with singleton pregnancies who presented with vaginal bleeding in which fetal heart activity was ultrasonographically demonstrated between(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of our study was to determine lipid peroxidation products and antioxidant enzyme activity in umbilical cord blood of small for gestational age (SGA) neonates. MATERIALS AND METHODS Umbilical cord arterial blood samples were collected from 21-term singleton SGA newborn infants and 21 age- and sex-matched appropriate for gestational age(More)
