This study investigated correlations between mortality, stroke subtype and stroke severity with serum osteoprotegerin (OPG) and S-100 protein levels prior to the treatment of patients admitted to the emergency department and diagnosed with ischaemic stroke. Pretreatment serum samples were collected from patients (n = 90) to determine OPG and S-100 protein(More)
The electrocardiogram (ECG) is a biological signal that contains important information about the cardiac activities of heart. ECG signal plays a very important role in the diagnosis and analysis of heart diseases. ECG signal is corrupted by various types of noise such as electrode movement, strong electromagnetic effect and muscle noise. Noisy ECG signal(More)
Neuroleptic malignant syndrome (NMS) is a life-threatening medical complication that occurs as a result of dopaminergic receptor blockage in nigrostriatal pathways. This syndrome is mainly accepted to be an idiosyncratic reaction for antipsychotic medications. Incidence of NMS induced by olanzapine - an atypical antipsychotic - is extremely rare. However,(More)
BACKGROUND As in the rest of the world, the prevalence of obesity in Turkey has been increasing in recent years and has become a major public health issue. Although many trials have been conducted to study the effects of obesity on internal diseases, there are few studies investigating the effects of obesity on prognosis of trauma patients. The present(More)
Agenesis of paranasal sinuses is an uncommon finding mainly seen in the frontal and maxillary sinuses. Agenesis of sphenoid sinuses is an extremely rare condition. In this article, we present an 18-year-old female patient suffering from headache and nasal obstruction without any skeletal or cranial anomalies.

SONUÇ Ultrasonografi incelemesinde pelvik sıvı varlığında solid organ yaralanma olasılığı daha düşük iken, pelvis dışı int-raperitoneal sıvı varlığında solid organ yaralanma olasılı-ğı daha yüksektir.
This study aims to investigate the acute protective effect of montelukast sodium in hepatic injury secondary to acetaminophen (APAP) intoxication. This study used 60 rats. The rats were grouped into 6 groups. The control group was administered oral distilled water 10 ml/kg, the APAP group oral APAP 1 g/kg, the montelukast sodium (MK) group oral MK 30 mg/kg,(More)
The Electrocardiogram (ECG) signal is a biological non-stationary signal which contains important information about rhythms of heart. ECG signals can be buried by various types of noise. These types can be electrode movement, strong electromagnetic effect and muscle noise. Noisy ECG signal has been denoised using signal processing. This paper presents a(More)
