BACKGROUND The mean platelet volume (MPV) is the most commonly used measure of platelet size and is a potential marker of platelet reactivity. In this study, we aimed to explore the relationship between hepatic histopathology in viral hepatitis and MPV levels, which are associated with platelet count and activity. MATERIALS AND METHODS We performed a(More)
Eosinophilic gastroenteritis (EGE) is a rare disease characterized by eosinophilic infiltration and peripheral eosinophilia. It can be seen anywhere in the gastrointestinal tract. It is diagnosed in the biopsies taken during endoscopic examination to the patients with abdominal pain and chronic diarrhea. A 40-year-old woman was admitted with abdominal pain(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Magnetic compression anastomosis is a rescue technique for recanalization of complete biliary strictures. Here, we present magnetic compression anastomosis with novel through-the-scope magnets in patients with complete duct-to-duct anastomosis obstruction after liver transplantation. METHODS The magnets were 2 and 2.4 mm in diameter,(More)
A 70-year-old man was admitted to our clinic with complaints of fever, jaundice, dyspnea, and generalized rash after 3 months of allopurinol treatment for gout. On physical examination, he was found to have fever (38.5°C), jaundice, and generalized maculopapular rash. Leukocytosis, eosinophilia, elevation of liver enzymes, and hyperbilirubinemia were(More)
BACKGROUND Fully covered-self expandable metal stents (Fc-SEMSs) have a challenging use in the treatment of anastomosis strictures (ASs) after live donor liver transplantation (LDLT) because they can occlude secondary branch biliary ducts when placed above the biliary bifurcation. In this study we evaluated the technical feasibility and safety of combining(More)
Biliary complications develop in 10–40 % of patients following liver transplantation. Biliary strictures, leaks, and stone are the most common type of complications. In this study, we focused on the endoscopic treatment of biliary stones. Among 142 patients with liver transplantation [22 deceased donor related (DDLT), 120 live donor related liver(More)
