Prediabetes has been associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease and mortality. Soluble P-selectin (sP-selectin) is an index of platelet activation and also a risk factor for future vascular events. sP-selectin levels were investigated in prediabetic subjects who had no confounding factors such as hypertension, obesity or dyslipidaemia.(More)
BACKGROUND Frontal sinuses are 2 irregular cavities, placed between 2 lamina of frontal bone. Expansion continues during childhood and reaches full size after puberty. Persistent metopic suture is one of the factors that are related to abnormal frontal sinus development. In this study, we want to discuss about the coexistence of persistent metopic suture(More)
AIM To evaluate the neuroprotective activity of systemically administered edaravone in early and late stage of experimental glaucoma in rats. METHODS In this study, 60 Wistar albino rats were used. Experimental glaucoma model was created by injecting hyaluronic acid to the anterior chamber once a week for 6wk in 46 of 60 subjects. Fourteen subjects(More)
To investigate the short-term effect of single intravitreal aflibercept injection on retrobulbar blood flow in patients with neovascular age-related macular degeneration (nAMD). Twenty eyes of 20 patients with nAMD scheduled for single intravitreal aflibercept (Eylea®) injection and 20 fellow eyes (uninjected) were enrolled in this prospective(More)
Subcutaneous emphysema is a very rare and good-natured complication after transurethral resection of prostate (TURP). It has been reported as colon perforation, diverticulitis, and bladder perforation associated complication previously. We report the first case of a wide subcutaneous emphysema due to microperforations of prostatic capsule, without a bladder(More)
BACKGROUND The foramen magnum provides a transition between fossa cranii posterior and canalis vertebralis. Medulla oblongata, arteria vertebralis and nervus accessorius spinal part pass through the foramen magnum. In this study, we aimed to make the morphometric measurements of the foramen magnum on CT and to determine the feasibility of sex determination(More)
AIM Iatrogenic vascular injuries due to spinal surgeries are rare but serious complications. Surgical management of these injuries is challenging with high morbidity rates. In this study we aim to present the results of endovascular management of iatrogenic vascular injuries due to spinal surgeries. MATERIAL AND METHODS We retrospectively reviewed 11(More)
A 14-year-old boy presented with nausea and left-sided abdominal pain of 2 days’ duration and had elevated white blood cells. Abdominal CT with contrast agent shows a 4× 4×3.7-cm well-defined, hypodense structure in the splenic hilumwith surrounding fat stranding and free fluid (Fig. 1). It was not a simple cyst and did not show significant enhancement.(More)
Central retinal artery occlusion (CRAO) is one of the serious ophthalmological emergencies with poor visual prognosis. Iloprost is a stable prostacyclin analogue and has prominent anti-edema, anti-inflammatory, vasodilatory, and antiagregant effects. The main objective of this work was to investigate iloprost as an alternative agent versus hyperbaric oxygen(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) thickness, ganglion cell-inner plexiform layer (GCL+) thickness, and macular choroidal thickness (mCT) in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) using spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). METHODS A total of 79 COPD patients and 71 age- and sex-matched healthy(More)
