This experiment was carried out to evaluate the ground Rosa canina seed at various levels (0%, 5%, and 15%) in barley–soybean-based concentrates offered to Morkaraman male lambs at approximately 8 months of age, on fattening performance, carcass, and meat quality characteristics. The lambs were divided into three treatment groups including R1 (concentrate(More)
OBJECTIVES The neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR) has been investigated as a new predictor for cardiovascular risk. Admission NLR would be predictive of adverse outcomes after primary angioplasty for ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). METHODS A total of 2410 patients with STEMI undergoing primary angioplasty were retrospectively(More)
OBJECTIVES We investigated the prevalence, distribution, risk factors, and prognosis of coronary artery ectasia (CAE) in patients undergoing coronary angiography for suspected coronary artery disease (CAD). STUDY DESIGN Of 4,119 patients undergoing elective coronary angiography between 2003 and 2005, 173 patients (139 males, 34 females; mean age 61+/-11(More)
OBJECTIVES Although atrial fibrillation (AF) is one of the most common rhythm disorders observed in clinical practice, a multicenter epidemiological study has not been conducted in our country. This study aimed to assess our clinical approach to AF based upon the records of the first multicenter prospective Atrial Fibrillation in Turkey: Epidemiologic(More)
Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) is an alternative therapy to surgical aortic valve replacement (AVR) in inoperable patients with severe aortic stenosis (AS). Currently, new valve systems are being developed, and we experienced TAVI with the Boston Scientific Lotus Valve System (Marlborough, Massachusetts, USA) with two patients for the first(More)
BACKGROUND Isolated systolic hypertension (ISHT) is a subtype of hypertension (HT) that often exhibits wide pulse pressure, and pulse pressure has a strong predictive value for future adverse cardiovascular events. Previous studies have shown the effects of leukocyte count on the prognosis of ischaemic heart disease and HT. AIM Thus, in this(More)
OBJECTIVES We aimed to examine in-hospital and long-term outcomes of red blood cell (RBC) transfusions in patients undergoing a primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). METHODS Overall, 2537 consecutive STEMI patients (mean age 56.2 ± 11.7 years, 2111 men, 426 women) undergoing primary(More)
OBJECTIVES The iso-osmolar contrast agent iodixanol may be associated with fewer contrast-induced acute kidney injuries when compared with low-osmolar contrast agents. The aim of this study is to compare iodixanol and iopamidol in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) who are currently undergoing coronary angiography. STUDY DESIGN Two hundred and(More)
ing next 12 years (1). However, some defects due to the design of the valve such as unacceptable transvalvular gradient in smaller sizes, absence of central flow causing higher transvalvular gradients especially in aortic position and thromboembolic complications associated with the strut clothes had never been solved (2). The incidence of complications(More)
