BACKGROUND The objective of the study is to evaluate the reliability of mean platelet volume (MPV) for predicting ischemic stroke (cerebrovascular event [CVE]) among patients with different degrees of carotid stenosis. METHODS Fifty-two patients with CVEs, 136 patients with carotid artery disease (CAD), and 40 healthy volunteers were enrolled in this(More)
In this study, we evaluated 85 patients who presented to our Emergency Department with organophosphate (OP) poisoning and discuss their associated electrocardiographic (ECG) abnormalities. Over a period of 3 years, 85 patients with OP poisoning were included in this retrospective study. ECG analysis included the rate, rhythm, ST-T abnormalities, conduction(More)

METHODS Pregnant women who are at term and met the inclusion criteria were included the study. Maternal echocardiography, electrocardiography, arterial blood pressure monitoring, CK-MB, serum heart type fatty acid binding protein(More)
AIM Conservative treatment is a frequently used treatment modality for traumatic thoracolumbar fractures. However, not many studies evaluating radiological and clinical results of conservative treatment are found. The aim of this study was to determine the risk factors, and compression and kyphosis rates after 1 year in patients with AO type A thoracic,(More)
Objective: The surgical outcomes of anterior circle of Willis aneurysms were evaluated. Material and Methods: Between March 2015 and December 2016, 38 patients were operated and followed up for aneurysms. There were 15 female and 23 male patients with a mean age of 47 years (range: 17-78). Of the patients, 35 were diagnosed with subarachnoid hemorrhage(More)
Objective: To report a case with sudden-onset tetraparesis during taking magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Case report: A 73-year-old man was referred with complaints of paresis of his arms and legs. His tetraparesis had developed suddenly while an MRI was performed 10 days before. He had a severe tetraparesis with 0/5 motor strength in his legs and 2/5(More)
BACKGROUND Our aim was to compare the routine training (RT) method with the intensive training (IT) method, described for the first time by our group, for preventing pre-analytical errors in induced hemolysis. METHODS At two months, either RT or IT methods were introduced, and data collected in the second two months were compared with the initial two(More)
AIM To determine whether the serum level of glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP), an important indicator of neuron damage, correlates with the extent of tissue damage in the rat with induced head trauma and to obtain data in order to avoid unnecessary cranial computed tomography analyses. MATERIAL AND METHODS Three-month-old male Sprague-Dawley rats(More)
A 38-year-old man who had a history of percutaneous coronary artery coil occlusion was admitted to our hospital with chest pain and shortness of breath. His complaint was chest pain, which is typical. ST depressions were observed during the treadmill exercise stress test. Coronary angiography demonstrated the persistence of a coronary arteriovenous fistula(More)
