Unpredictable trancutaneous absorption of topically administered drugs and potential teratogenicity and toxicity of systemic drugs would make it mandatory to innovate more efficacious and less toxic drugs for the treatment of ichthyosis, which is not a fully curable disease in the neonatal period. In this article the clinical efficacy of 10%(More)
The neuroprotective effects of propofol have been confirmed. However, it remains unclear whether intrathecal administration of propofol exhibits neuroprotective effects on spinal cord ischemia. At 1 hour prior to spinal cord ischemia, propofol (100 and 300 µg) was intrathecally administered in rats with spinal cord ischemia. Propofol pre-treatment greatly(More)
In a dissection performed in our department, we observed multiple variations of the greater omentum. The unusual attachments of the greater omentum were identified. While the right upper part combined with ligamentum teres hepatis, the left upper part had connection with the anterolateral abdominal wall. In addition, the free lower margin of the greater(More)
In this study, it is aimed to model a dc motor which will be able to achieve panel movement in solar panels and realize position control using artificial neural networks method in LabView. Position control of DC motors is possible with position sensors integrated to motors or external position sensors. The most popular of these sensors are encoder and(More)
The aim of this study is to investigate the effects of the sonographic characteristics of the nodule, demographic features of patient, and nodule size and needle size used for sampling, on obtaining adequate cytological material (CM) in thyroid fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB). We performed 270 FNAB between September 2010 and June 2012. Size,(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Most hemodialysis patients show hemoglobin fluctuations between low-normal and high levels. This hemoglobin variability may cause left ventricle hypertrophy and may increase mortality as well. Recently, many studies were designed to evaluate the effect of hemoglobin variability on mortality but results were conflicting. We aimed to(More)
Transesophageal electrophysiologic study (TEEPS) is a semi-invasive method widely used for evaluation of symptoms related to arrhythmia. In this study, we aimed to determine the accuracy of TEEPS in the diagnosis and differentiation of mechanisms of supraventricular tachycardias (SVTs) by comparing results of transesophageal and intracardiac(More)
BACKGROUND Monitoring for late adverse events is crucial in long-term management of childhood cancer survivors. A case-control study to evaluate long-term cardiovascular status of childhood Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) using tissue Doppler imaging (TDI) was performed. PATIENTS AND METHODS Patients diagnosed with HL before age of 18 that completed therapy and(More)
This paper presents the use of multiclass support vector machines (SVMs) for diagnosis of spirometric patterns (normal, restrictive, obstructive). The SVM decisions were fused using the error correcting output codes (ECOC). The multiclass SVM with the ECOC was trained on three spirometric parameters (forced expiratory volume in 1s—FEV1, forced vital(More)
