The omohyoid muscle is important in radical neck dissection, as it is a landmark for this operation. Because it divides the anterior and posterior cervical triangles into smaller triangles and its particular relationship to the large cervical vessels, the presence of an anatomical variation of the omohyoid muscle is important. An unfamiliar muscle was found(More)
The corpus callosum (CC) is a major anatomical and functional commissure linking the two cerebral hemispheres. With MR imaging in the sagittal plane, the corpus callosum can be depicted in great detail. Mid-sagittal magnetic resonance images of 80 normal individuals were analyzed to assess whether or not the morphology of the corpus callosum and its parts(More)
The incidence of Bochdalek and Morgagni hernias among adults is very rare. The purpose of this study was to determine retrospectively the prevalence and characteristics of adult Bochdalek and Morgagni hernias in a decade. Consequently, we demonstrated 12 patients with Bochdalek and 8 patients with Morgagni hernias. We presented plain radiography, operation(More)
Lumbar disc degeneration is characterised radiologically by the presence of osteophytes, endplate sclerosis, and disc space narrowing. Our study was designed to assess anterior lumbar osteophytes, disc space narrowing, end plate sclerosis, and bone mineral density (BMD) in the lumbar vertebrae and femoral neck of elderly men. A total of 1000 men, aged(More)
This study was designed to determine the effect of L-arginine on hypoxia inducible factor alpha (HIF-1 alpha) and Sonic hedgehog (Shh) levels considered to be involved in the development of ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury. Unilaterally nephrectomized Sprague-Dawley rats were subjected to 60 minutes of left renal ischemia followed by 45 minutes of(More)
We report the case of 44-year-old woman with a left-sided Bochdalek hernia (BH) with concomitant partial situs inversus. The patient was presented from the outpatient clinic with lower chest discomfort. She had suffered from abdominal pain for one year, with no history of trauma, previous surgery, or extreme physical exertion. Chest radiograph revealed a(More)
The present study was undertaken to determine histopathologic differences in the ribs of Wistar-albino rat fetuses prenatally exposed to valproic acid (VPA), folic acid (FA) and vitamin E (Vit E), and to compare their differential developmental susceptibility and morphological association with skeletal anomalies. VPA (300 mg/ kg), FA (300mg/kg) and Vit E(More)
This study was designed to determine the effect of molsidomine (MO), a precursor of nitric oxide (NO) donor, on hypoxia inducible factor alpha (HIF-1α) and Sonic hedgehog (Shh) levels considered to be involved in the development of testes ischemia/reperfusion (I-R) injury. Torsions were created by rotating ipsilateral testes 720° in a clockwise direction(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the effects of recombinant human interleukin-4 (rhIL-4) on hypoxia-induced lung injury in immature rats. The study was performed on 1-day-old Sprague Dawley rat pups. Group 1 (n=7) served as nonhypoxic controls. Group 2 (untreated, n=7) rats were subjected to hypoxia–reoxygenation (H/O) and were then returned to their(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of L-arginine (L-Arg) on neurological function, histopathology, and expression of hypoxia-inducible factor-1 alpha (HIF-1alpha) following spinal cord ischemia in rats, and the interaction between therapy with the nitric oxide donor L-Arg and up-regulation of the expression of HIF-1alpha. Thirty Wistar(More)
