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)
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)
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)

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)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to demonstrate the neuroprotective effect of magnesium sulfate on ischemia-reperfusion-induced injury in fetal rat brain. METHODS Twenty-four, 19-days pregnant rats were randomly allocated into four groups. Fetal brain ischemia was induced by clamping the utero-ovarian artery bilaterally for 20 min and reperfusion was(More)
OBJECTIVES: With the widespread use of tension-free slings there seems to be no more place for colposuspension.We want to describe our indications and the experience with this procedure. METHODS: Since 1980 we have performed more than 3500 modified colposuspensions; perioperative complications and direct success,as well as followed-up patients were(More)
The efficacy and safety of misoprostol for cervical ripening and labor induction in patients with oligohydramnios was investigated. 57 pregnancies with oligohydramnios and 58 cases with a normal amniotic fluid volume (controls) were enrolled in this prospective trial. All patients received 50 microg of intravaginal misoprostol every 5 h. Primary outcomes(More)
