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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
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)
X-ray radiation is detrimental to human cells and may lead to development of life-threatening diseases. Cigarette smoke contains about 500 chemicals that include organic and oxidant compounds whereas vitamin C and E (VCE) have scavenger effects on the compounds. We investigated effects of VCE administration on X-ray-induced oxidative toxicity in blood of(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)
X-ray radiation is detrimental to human cells and may lead to development of life-threatening diseases. Cigarette paper and cigarette smoke contain toxic elements, whereas vitamins C and E (VCE) may have regulator effects on the elements. We investigated effects of VCE administration on X-ray-induced element changes in blood of smoker and nonsmoker X-ray(More)
