Although radiological findings of cerebral hemiatrophy (Dyke-Davidoff-Masson Syndrome) are well known, there is no systematic study about the gender and the affected side in this syndrome. Brain images in 26 patients (mean aged 11) with cerebral hemiatrophy were retrospectively reviewed. Nineteen patients (73.5%) were male and seven patients (26.5%) were(More)
The levels of blood lipid peroxidation, glutathione peroxidase, reduced glutathione, and vitamin C were used to follow the level of oxidative damage caused by 2.45 GHz electromagnetic radiation in rats. The possible protective effects of selenium and L-carnitine were also tested and compared to untreated controls. Thirty male Wistar Albino rats were equally(More)
Seasonal and weather influence on the incidence of cerebrovascular disease has been reported previously. The aim of this retrospective study was to determine whether the time of onset of ischemic strokes (IS) and intracerebral hemorrhages (ICH) were associated with the environmental temperature or the time, as a month or season, in our region. We analyzed(More)
Omental torsion is a rare disease. It can be difficult to identify if it is not clinically considered in the preoperative period, and this pathology may lead to an acute abdomen. We present the characteristic computed tomography findings and clinical particulars in a 34-year-old male patient with longstanding left inguinal hernia associated with an(More)
OBJECTIVE Purpose of this study is to assess sonographic changes and clinical response in different subgroups of Baker's cyst patients with knee osteoarthritis after a single session of ultrasound-guided percutaneous aspiration and corticosteroid injection. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty-two knee osteoarthritis patients (46-85 years, mean 58.97±9.88) with(More)
Diagnosis of liver infestation by alveolar echinococcosis (AE) is based on serologic, sonographic and computed tomography (CT) findings. Experience with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) demonstrates that features of this disease are limited. CT and MRI findings of 14 cases with hepatic AE were compared in this report. We have described the MRI appearance of(More)
BACKGROUND Pulmonary thromboembolism is a serious complication in patients with deep vein thrombosis (DVT). Previous studies have demonstrated that platelet activation occurs in patients with DVT. Mean platelet volume (MPV) is a simple and easy method of assessing platelet function. The aim of this study was to assess the MPV, an indicator of platelet(More)
Availability and utilization of computed tomography angiography has been increasing recently. We aimed to assess the effectiveness of low amount of contrast media and low kV value in order to reduce possible side effects of contrast media and to provide optimization of kV value in the evaluation of the carotid artery with multi-detector computed tomography(More)
Contrast media (CM)-induced nephropathy is a common cause of iatrogenic acute renal failure. The aim of the present review was to discuss the mechanisms and risk factors of CM, to summarize the controlled studies evaluating measures for prevention and to conclude with evidence-based strategies for prevention. A review of the relevant literature and results(More)
The cavernous hemangiomas of the liver are usually small sized and asymptomatic. Most of them are incidentally diagnosed and a very small portion requires therapy. Giant hemangioma can be symptomatic, and this condition is the indication for treatment. The striking complication of surgical treatment of (More)
