In an attempt to determine the best route to puncture and access the kidney collecting system we studied 62, 3-dimensional polyester resin endocasts of the pelvicaliceal system together with the intrarenal vessels. A retrograde pyelogram was obtained, and the arterial and venous trees were injected with red and blue resins, respectively. When the resin was(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to analyze the type and frequency of cranial computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging anomalies in patients with idiopathic growth hormone deficiency, and also to investigate the possible relationship between neuroradiological images and the presence of isolated growth hormone or multiple pituitary hormone(More)
BACKGROUND To investigate the effects of low-intensity exercise on bone healing during a short time. MATERIAL/METHODS We made a surgical 1-mm perforation in the upper third medial cortical of the right tibia of 45 male Wistar rats (3 months old; mean weight, 282+/-34 g). Animals were randomly assigned to a swimming exercise group (SWIM, n=15), a running(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to develop and validate a multivariate prediction model, guided by palpation and personal information, for locating the seventh cervical spinous process (C7SP). METHODS A single-blinded, cross-sectional study at a primary to tertiary health care center was conducted for model development and temporal validation.(More)
Overgrowth syndromes comprise a heterogeneous group of diseases that are characterized by excessive tissue development. Some of these syndromes may be associated with dysfunction in the receptor tyrosine kinase (RTK)/PI3K/AKT pathway, which results in an increased expression of the insulin receptor. In the current review, four overgrowth syndromes were(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to assess the thorax-rib static method (TRSM), a palpation method for locating the seventh cervical spinous process (C7SP), and to report clinical data on the accuracy of this method and that of the neck flexion-extension method (FEM), using radiography as the gold standard. METHODS A single-blinded, cross-sectional(More)
BACKGROUND Evidence on the diagnostic performance of palpatory methods and possible confounding factors is scarce. OBJECTIVES To examine the sensitivity of palpatory methods for location of lumbopelvic landmarks and to assess its association with personal characteristics. METHODS Eighty-three participants (41 men, 55.6 (16.5) years, 25.9 (4.8) kg/m2(More)
