BACKGROUND Mesh fixation is a critical step in TAPP laparoscopic hernia repair because tackers used for this purpose are associated with possible neuralgia. METHODS For the present study, 70 patients referred with unilateral inguinal or femoral hernia were divided in two groups for hernia repair. In first group mesh was fixed with titanium tacker. In the(More)
Anaphylactic reaction is a known complication of cystic hydatid disease, a parasitic infestation caused by the larval/cyst stage of Echinococcus granulosus that usually happens after trauma or during interventions. Nontraumatic leakage of cyst contents into the blood circulation is an uncommon triggering factor for anaphylaxis, which is rarely reported in(More)
BACKGROUND The optimal management of hemodynamically stable asymptomatic patients with anterior abdominal stab wounds (AASWs) remains controversial. The goal is to identify and treat injuries in a safe cost-effective manner. Common evaluation strategies are local wound exploration (LWE), diagnostic peritoneal lavage (DPL), serial clinical assessment (SCAs)(More)
Identifying noninvasive biomarkers of kidney disease is valuable for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes. Hypoxia inducible factor 1 (HIF-1) expression is known to be elevated in the kidneys in several renal disease pathologies. We hypothesized that the urinary HIF-1a mRNA level may be a suitable biomarker for expression of this protein in chronic kidney(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of vitamin A and C, as the agents that improve wound healing, on the adhesion formation process. MATERIALS AND METHODS Sixty male Wistar rats were used. They underwent midline laparotomy, for repair of a peritoneal injury, and were then assigned to four groups. Group 1 (Vitamin A) received 2000(More)
Adenosine receptor family especially A1 type is expressed in breast cancer cells in which P53 and caspase genes are wild-type. The aim of this study was to investigate the correlation between A1 receptor and either cell apoptosis or proliferation and also to recognize the relationship between this receptor and P53 and the expression of caspases 3, 8 and 9(More)
BACKGROUND Obesity is a known prevalent major health issue. The aim of this study is to assay Iranian patients' problems with obesity and their expectations of bariatric surgery.
