We investigated prognostic importance of electrocardiographic (ECG) changes in ischaemic stroke patients without primary heart disease because of the limited evidence. This study consisted of 162 patients (92 male, age 64 +/- 14 years) with first ischaemic stroke presenting to hospital during 18 months. One-month mortality was analysed by means of(More)
To compare the efficacy of local steroid injection and open carpal tunnel release, a symptom and functional status questionnaire (Boston Questionnaire) and sensory and motor nerve conduction studies were performed in 90 patients with electrophysiologically proven idiopathic carpal tunnel syndrome, of whom 44 were treated surgically and 46 by two-dose(More)
A variety of experimental studies have demonstrated the neuroprotective effects of melatonin, based on its antioxidant activity. In a prospective randomized study, the effects of melatonin were investigated in experimental head trauma-induced oxidative stress in rabbits. The experimental study was performed on 30 rabbits. The animals were divided into three(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the therapeutic efficacy of caffeic acid phenethyl ester (CAPE) with an experimental traumatic brain injury (TBI) model in rats. Twenty-four adult male Sprague–Dawley rats were randomly divided into three groups of 8 rats each: control, TBI, and TBI + CAPE treatment. In TBI and TBI + CAPE treatment groups, a cranial(More)
Despite the high prevalence of lumbosacral transitional vertebra (LSTV), little is known about the biomechanics of this condition. In addition, as previous studies have focused solely on symptomatic and elderly LSTV patients, the relationship between LSTV and congenital or developmental spinal stenosis remains uncertain. In the present study, the spinal(More)
Echinococcus granulosus infrequently induces spinal hydatid cysts, and intradural hydatid cysts are extremely rare among these spinal hydatid cysts. We report a 30-year-old man with a history of progressive back pain caused by a previous back injury. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed a spinal intradural cystic lesion. After surgical removal,(More)
