The aim of the study was to classify different types of hepatic hydatid cysts (HHCs) by measuring the mean apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) using diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (DWI). This prospective study comprised 44 patients. The 44 HHCs were classified using Gharbi ultrasonographic classification (GUC) and then T2WIs and DWIs were(More)
Subclinical hypothyroidism is a frequent disorder in populations and has been shown to be a risk factor for coronary heart disease (CHD). Less is known about the contribution of lipoprotein (a) [Lp(a)] to the development of CHD in this disorder. Therefore this study was designed to evaluate Lp(a) and other lipoprotein concentrations before and after L-T4(More)
A comparison was made of the effects of dexfenfluramine (DF, 3-10 mg kg-1) on intake of and conditioning with glucose solutions varying in orostimulant properties (taste) and post-ingestive actions (calories), in rats. First, sham-feeding, using gastric-fistulated rats, was performed to assess the orostimulant properties of the solutions. Then, two(More)
The effect of L-carnitine (LC) on brain stem auditory evoked potentials (BAEP), was examined in alloxan-diabetic rats. LC (200 mg kg-1, i.p., once daily) was given to diabetic rats starting from the third week after the induction of diabetes, lasting for 4 weeks. Age-matched non-diabetic rats served as controls. The latency of wave I and interpeak latency(More)
The effects of aminoguanidine (AG) and L-carnitine (LC) on somatosensorial evoked potential (SEP) latency and neural levels of thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARS), products of lipid peroxidation, were compared in alloxan-diabetic rats. AG and LC were given to diabetic rats starting from the 3rd week after the induction of diabetes and lasting(More)
Although increased plasma fibronectin (PF) levels have been found in diabetic patients with microalbuminuria, there is still controversy about its clinical implication for detecting early diabetic nephropathy. To evaluate the PF concentration as a possible marker for early diabetic nephropathy, three groups of sex-and age-matched patients were studied I) 22(More)
We investigated the role of MR imaging for evaluation of the functional status of the neurohypophyseal system in both idiopathic central diabetes insipidus (DI) and familial autosomal dominant neurohypophyseal DI. The patients and family with DI were analyzed retrospectively for the presence or absence of posterior pituitary gland hyperintense signal on MR(More)
OBJECTIVE The role of Ghrelin, also known as the appetite hormone, is not fully explained in the development of morbid obesity. Plasma Ghrelin level is low in obese and high in slim subjects. Ghrelin-expressing cells were investigated histopathologically in the stomach of morbid obese patients in this study. Tissue Ghrelin expression was also compared with(More)
To investigate how the visit-to-visit variation in serum lipids measurements affects the decision making concerning treatment according to the National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP) guidelines in patients with clinically well controlled non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) we have measured the biological variation (CVb) in serum total(More)
OBJECTIVE To report a case of Noonan's syndrome in a patient with numerous cardiac abnormalities. METHODS We present a case report of a patient with Noonan's syndrome, including clinical, laboratory, and radiologic findings, and discuss the characteristic features of this condition. RESULTS A 19-year-old male patient had most of the typical clinical(More)
