BACKGROUND Experimental models of traumatic brain injury (TBI), using a variety of techniques and species, have been devised with the aim of producing repeatable lesions resembling those found in head injuries. There are various TBI models mentioned in the literature. In experimental head trauma models, emphasis has been placed on the severe head injuries.(More)
Ectopic intrathyroidal thymus tissue that may be present as a thyroid nodule is rarely reported. We present a case of a 4-year-old boy with a solitary thyroid nodule. Real-time thyroid ultrasound showed a calcified nodule in the right lobe. Complete blood count, serum calcitonin, and thyroglobulin concentration were normal and antithyroid antibodies were(More)
Epitheloide Hämangioendotheliome (EHE) sind seltene Gefäßtumore, die im Allgemeinen im Weichteilgewebe entstehen. Primäre Knochen EHEs, besonders solche im Wirbelsäulenbereich, sind sehr selten. Wir präsentieren den Fall eines 30-jährigen Mannes, der mit lumbalen Schmerzen, Gehproblemen, Harninkontinenz und einem tauben Gefühl in der kaudalen Region(More)
AIM Effective anti-Helicobacter pylori therapies with few side-effects are needed. We studied the effectiveness of a low-dose combination of metronidazole, amoxycillin and omeprazole for treatment of ulcer patients in Seoul, Korea. METHODS Patients with gastric or duodenal ulcer received metronidazole (125 mg b.d.), amoxycillin (500 mg b.d.) and(More)
subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (sspe), chronic progressive inflammatory disorder of the central nervous system, is associated with the presence of persistent and aberrant measles virus infection. The diagnosis is based on characteristic clinical features, periodic electroencephalographic complexes, and elevated measles antibody titer in cerebrospinal(More)
BACKGROUND A large variety of endoscopic biopsy forceps are commercially available. However, little is known regarding the influence of forceps characteristics such as disposability, size, shape, and presence of a needle on the adequacy of the specimens for histologic diagnosis. Our aim was to analyze in a prospective, randomized, pathologist-blinded study(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of environmental light-dark changes on the outcome of mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI) using an experimental rodent model. The functions of endogenous and exogenous melatonin on the outcome of injury were also investigated METHODS Mild traumatic brain injury was experimentally induced in 56(More)
AIM To investigate the effects of amifostine, a cytoprotective agent, on pathophysiological changes in vasogenic brain edema induced by an experimental cold injury model and to compare these changes with dexamethasone. MATERIAL AND METHODS A total of 138 rats divided into 6 groups. Brain water content (BWC), malondialdehyde (MDA) concentration and(More)
