PURPOSE PCNL (percutaneous nephrolithotripsy) is usually performed in the prone position. The supine position has potential advantages comparing with the prone position. Our objective is comparison between the outcome of PCNL in the complete supine position and the standard prone position. MATERIAL AND METHODS A total of 80 patients who underwent PCNL(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of sperm DNA damage and protamine deficiency on fertilization and embryo development post-intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI), and also to assess the effect of protamine deficiency on DNA damage. Semen samples were collected from 28 patients participating in the ICSI programme. Following sperm preparation(More)
BACKGROUND The failure of regeneration after spinal cord injury (SCI) has been attributed to axonal demyelination and neuronal death. Cellular replacement and white matter regeneration are both necessary for SCI repair. In this study, we evaluated the co-transplantation of olfactory ensheathing cells (OEC) and embryonic stem (ES) cell-derived motor neurons(More)
Detailed soil surveys involve costly and time-consuming work and require expert knowledge. Since soil surveys provide information to meet a wide range of needs, new methods are necessary to map soils quickly and accurately. In this study, multilayer perceptron artificial neural networks (ANNs) were developed to map soil units using digital elevation model(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe the possible effects of cryotop vitrification on maturation rate and ultrastructural morphology of human in vitro matured germinal vesicle (GV) oocytes. STUDY DESIGN A total of 301surplus immature GV oocytes obtained from infertile patients were allocated into two groups: (i) GV oocytes (n=150) matured in vitro (fIVM), and (ii) GV(More)
To associate glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PDH) activity in goat oocytes with intracellular glutathione (GSH) content, meiotic competence, developmental potential, and relative abundance of Bax and Bcl-2 genes transcripts. Goat oocytes were exposed to brilliant cresyl blue (BCB) staining test and categorized into BCB+ (blue-cytoplasm), and BCB−(More)
Activated protein C (APC) is a serine protease with anticoagulant, anti-inflammatory, and cytoprotective properties. Using recombinant APC, we identified a class of single-stranded DNA aptamers (HS02) that selectively bind to APC with high affinity. Interaction of HS02 with APC modulates the protease activity in a way such that the anticoagulant functions(More)
INTRODUCTION Our aim was to investigate the diagnostic accuracy of C-reactive protein (CRP) and erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) in patients with acute scrotum. MATERIALS AND METHODS One hundred and twenty patients with acute scrotum were evaluated and divided into 3 groups: 46 with acute epididymitis (group 1), 23 with spermatic cord torsion (group(More)
The purpose of this study was to fabricate a conductive aligned nanofibrous substrate and evaluate its suitability and cytocompatibility with neural cells for nerve tissue engineering purposes. In order to reach these goals, we first used electrospinning to fabricate single-walled carbon-nanotube (SWCNT) incorporated poly(L-lactic acid) (PLLA) nanofibrous(More)
