The radiological diagnosis of cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM) has to be made as soon as possible, since surgery performed in earlier stages during the course of CSM was reported to be more successful when compared with later stages. We hypothesized that diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) may detect CSM in earlier stages, before the appearance of signal(More)
The DRB, DQA, and DQB subregions of the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) were investigated by polymerase chain reaction and sequence-specific oligonucleotide probe hybridization (PCR/SSO) in 103 multiple sclerosis (MS) patients and 101 healthy controls from Turkey. Significant differences were detected between MS and control populations in the(More)
The routine use of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in adolescent idiopathic scoliosis remains controversial, and current indications for MRI in idiopathic scoliosis vary from study to study. The purpose of this study was to demonstrate the prevalence of neural axis malformations and the clinical relevance of routine MRI studies in the evaluation of(More)
Electrophysiological findings of 27 males with industrial n-hexane polyneuropathy (HPNP) are presented. The results of needle electromyography and nerve conduction studies were compatible with primarily axonal polyneuropathy with secondary segmental demyelination. Motor conduction velocities were the slowest in distal regions of the nerves. In the proximal(More)
