The cytokine erythropoietin (EPO) possesses potent neuroprotective activity against a variety of potential brain injuries, including transient ischemia and reperfusion. It is currently unknown whether EPO will also ameliorate spinal cord injury. Immunocytochemistry performed using human spinal cord sections showed abundant EPO receptor immunoreactivity of(More)
An 18-year-old girl with an aortico-right atrial tunnel originating from the left sinus of Valsalva, in which the left anterior descending and circumflex coronary arteries arose independently from the different parts of the tunnel, was reported. In the differential diagnosis of continuous murmur, this type of tunnel should be taken into consideration.(More)
Although several operational codes are available for the prediction of plume dynamics of Hall thrusters and their interactions with spacecraft surfaces, their coverage of the range of physical phenomena involved and their ability to model complex geometries and material combinations has tended to be fairly restricted. We have initiated the development of a(More)
We read with great interest the recently published article by Tasdemir et al. (1) entitled 'Aspirin resistance in patients with type II diabetes mellitus'. In that well-described study, the authors (1) investigated the prevalence and predictors of aspirin resistance in diabetic patients. They found that presence of diabetes mellitus had no effect on aspirin(More)
BACKGROUND Assessing therapeutic efficacy and patient satisfaction objectively and quantitatively has always been a problem in patients with vasospastic disorders. We aimed to present the additive value of ultrasonographic assessment of peripheral arteries secondary to cold stimulation, as a test for treatment efficacy during follow-up. MATERIAL AND(More)
To the Editor, We greatly enjoyed reading the article by Roscani et al. (1) titled ''Congenital aneurysmal circumflex coronary artery fistula in a pregnant woman.'' In the article, the authors presented a case report of a congenital aneurysmal coronary artery fistula to the right ventricle in a pregnant woman and discussed the appropriate management. We(More)
Hall thrusters and other types of electric propulsion have become a tempting alternative to traditional chemical propulsion systems due to the high specific impulses they provide at relatively high efficiencies. Unlike conventional chemical propulsion systems, electric propulsion devices do not rely on the internal energy stored within their propellant.(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the use of the emergency department (ED) by elderly patients, their non-urgent visits and the prevalence of main disease for ED visits. METHODS This cross-sectional study was conducted on patients aged 65 years and over who visited the ED of a tertiary care university hospital in Turkey between January 2015 and January 2016(More)
Kaposi sarcoma (KS), a vascular tumor caused by infection with human herpesvirus 8 (HHV8), is a systemic disease that can present with cutaneous lesions with or without visceral involvement. Very few cases of KS, most of which were associated with AIDS, have been reported in the adrenal gland. Anaplastic transformation of KS is a rare clinical presentation(More)
Inhalation of toluene-based products is popular among young adults. It has been shown to have a variety of adverse effects on several organs and systems. Although the heart seems to be a sensitive target organ to toluene, cardiotoxicity has often been ignored, especially in cases of acute toluene abuse, with relatively low concentrations. Thereby, routine(More)
