OBJECTIVES To determine the prevalence and risk factors of urinary incontinence (UI), and to assess its impact on quality of life (QOL) in Turkish women. METHODS In this cross-sectional study, 1012 women aged over 18 years were interviewed through a questionnaire including 'International Consultation on Incontinence Questionnaire Short Form'.

Medium-chain acyl-CoA dehydrogenase (MCAD) deficiency, is an autosomal recessive inborn error of metabolism associated with various clinical presentations, including sudden unexplained death in young children. We have determined the Scottish frequency of the common G985 mutation found in Caucasians and in samples from Scottish patients with sudden infant(More)
A gut model has been used to examine the speciation of three dietary available elements, Cu, Zn and Fe and their complexation with fibre and multivitamins. The analytical system consisted of an FI-ICP-MS interface for the determination of soluble and insoluble elemental distributions in samples. Solubility of elements was found to increase in the gut(More)
AIM To investigate the relationship between germ cell degeneration and apoptosis in cryptorchid rats. METHODS Thirteen 21-day-old Wistar rats were made unilaterally cryptorchid by closing the left inguinal canal. At day 30 (Group 1, n=6) and day 60 (Group 2, n=7) after operation, the testes were removed for histopathological examination. The controls(More)
Cigarette smoking is an important risk factor for renal damage due to its effects on small interlobular arteries. We investigated the effects of long-term passive smoking on renal vascular structures in healthy rats exposed to smoke soon after birth. Forty-two Sprague-Dawley rats (21 males and 21 females) exposed to passive smoking comprised the(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the effects of estrogen replacement therapy (ERT) on vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) expression in choroidal and retinal vasculature in experimental rat model. METHODS Forty female Wistar rats were randomized in 4 groups in the study. Subcutaneous ERT (17beta-estradiol, 10 microg/kg/day) was administered for three months(More)
PURPOSE To prospectively compare the diagnostic capabilities of quantitative susceptibility mapping (QSM) with those of phase images of susceptibility-weighted imaging (SWI) in the detection and differentiation of intracranial calcification and hemorrhage in pediatric patients. METHOD Sixteen pediatric patients (9 girls, 7 boys) with a mean age of 9.4±6.3(More)
AIM To investigate the effect of a new mechanically induced cryptorchidism model on rat epididymal histology. METHODS Eighteen 21-day-old Sprague Dawley rats were randomly divided into 3 groups of 6 animals each. Animals of Groups 1 and 2 were made unilaterally cryptorchid by closing the left inguinal canal, while Group 3 (controls), sham operated. At Day(More)
