METHODS This study was conducted with 46 patients diagnosed with cervical(More)
Single agent gemcitabine was used in recurrent epithelial ovarian cancer patients after standard treatment with debulking surgery and platin-paclitaxel based chemotherapy. Response rates and toxicity results were evaluated retrospectively. Gemcitabine was given in 1000 mg/m2 intravenous infusion over 30 minutes at 1, 8, 15 days of every 28 days. Clinical(More)
AIMS This study was conducted to investigate whether insertion/deletion (I/D) polymorphism of angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) gene and polymorphisms in glutathione S-transferase (GST) M1 and T1 genes are associated with increased risk for preeclampsia. MATERIALS AND METHODS Sixty-three patients with hypertensive disorder of pregnancy and 85 controls(More)
BACKGROUND We sought to investigate the effects of tubal sterilization over menstrual parameters and determine the timing of the detected influences. MATERIAL/METHODS We questioned 97 voluntary patients among 301 women who had been subjected to tubal sterilization in our clinic between 1996-2006.

A case with three synchronous tumors is presented. A 52-year-old patient underwent a total abdominal hysterectomy with bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy, bilateral pelvic and paraaortic lymph node dissection, and partial omentectomy for endometrial carcinoma accompanied by an adnexal mass. She further underwent cholecystectomy for a perioperative incidental(More)
Nucleated red blood cells are commonly present in the blood of newborns. Our objective was to investigate the value of umbilical cord nucleated red blood cell (NRBC) count in predicting fetal asphyxia in pre-eclamptic women. NRBCs were counted in umbilical cord blood samples of neonates born to 43 pre-eclamptic and 25 healthy pregnant women. Pre-eclamptic(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate and compare the effectiveness of magnesium sulfate (MgSO(4)) and mannitol in the treatment of posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES) in eclamptic women. STUDY DESIGN This retrospective analysis includes 62 eclamptic women between 22 and 40 weeks of gestation who were diagnosed with PRES in a tertiary care center. To(More)
Sixty patients were randomized to low-dose and high-dose groups, receiving a maximum total dose 1400 g of misoprostol by the vaginal route to compare the efficacy of the protocols for second trimester termination of pregnancy. Outcome measures to be compared between the groups were success rates, time to termination, blood loss, complications and(More)
