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)
Non-ionic contrast media (CM) can induce tissue kidney injury via activation of phagocytosis and oxidative stress, although the mechanisms of injury via neutrophils are not clear. We investigated the effects of CM on oxidative stress and Ca2+ concentrations in serum and neutrophils of humans. Ten migraine patients were used in the study. Serum and(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)
BACKGROUND Eagle syndrome is a condition caused by an elongated styloid process. Unilateral face, neck and ear pain, stinging pain, foreign body sensation and dysphagia can be observed with this syndrome. Rarely, the elongated styloid process may cause pain by compressing the cervical segment of the internal carotid and the surrounding sympathetic plexus,(More)
BACKGROUND To investigate the transthoracic computed tomography (CT)-guided lung nodule biopsy complications and risk factors associated with the development of these complications. METHODS We retrospectively evaluated a total of 41 CT-guided transthoracic biopsy complications. Data was analyzed by chi-square and independent sample t-tests. RESULTS(More)
BACKGROUND Our purpose was to evaluate the effectiveness of different kilovolt (kV) uses in computed tomography pulmonary angiography (CTPA) in the diagnosis of pulmonary thromboembolism (PTE). We also aimed to establish the optimal kV value and investigate the possibility of obtaining appropriate imaging quality with minimal radiation dose. MATERIAL AND(More)
We describe herein the use of MR fluoroscopic guidance in the drainage of abscess cavities. We percutaneously drained 12 brain abscesses in 11 patients. A 0.3T open MR imaging system was used. Sixteen drainages were performed in 12 abscesses. Repeat drainage was needed in three recurrences and one residual lesion. No serious complications were seen. MR(More)
