To evaluate the feasibility and surgical outcome of laparoscopy-assisted surgery for large adnexal cysts. From January 1998 to October 2007, 46 women underwent laparoscopy-assisted surgery for large adnexal cysts whose maximum diameter were between 10 and 20 cm, radiologic and laboratory features suggestive of benign disease. All the patients had a(More)
This study aimed at comparing short-term outcomes of patients who underwent robotic-assisted laparoscopic myomectomy and laparoscopic myomectomy. From January 2008 to August 2010, prospective data including 15 consecutive patients who underwent robotic-assisted myomectomy (RALM) with the da Vinci surgical system were recorded. These cases were compared with(More)
To present the outcomes of the first 25 robotic-assisted hysterectomies from Turkey. A total of 25 patients who underwent robotic-assisted hysterectomy (RAH) for benign conditions were included in the study. Patients’ demographics, surgical procedures, operative and postoperative complications, hospital stay, conversion to laparotomy, time data including(More)
To compare the results of patients on whom staging was applied by robotic-assisted laparoscopic surgery and laparotomy for endometrial cancer. The study included 10 patients who had undergone robotic-assisted endometrial staging (group 1) and 12 patients staged by open surgery (group 2). Demographical characteristics and operative outcomes of all patients(More)
We evaluated the results of patients who had undergone robotic-assisted radical hysterectomy or open radical hysterectomy for cervical cancer. The study included eight patients who had undergone robotic-assisted radical hysterectomy (group 1) and seven patients who had undergone radical hysterectomy (group 2). Demographic characteristics and operative(More)
To present the short-term surgical outcomes of robotic-assisted sacrocolpopexy and sacrocervicopexy. Between January 2009 and September 2010, 12 patients underwent robotic-assisted pelvic organ prolapse repair including six sacrocolpopexy and six sacrocervicopexy. Patients’ demographics, surgical procedures, operative and postoperative complications,(More)
It is difficult to conduct studies with larger series in rarely observed diseases. We report our experience in managing cesarean scar endometriosis (CSE) and emphasize the diagnosis and treatment options. The objective of our study is to review the clinical characteristics of CSE and to evaluate our surgical outcomes. We have collected and documented a case(More)
BACKGROUND The objective of the study was to compare the short-term outcomes of robot-assisted hysterectomy with laparoscopic hysterectomy. METHODS This study compared 60 patients who underwent robot-assisted hysterectomy (RAH) with 60 patients who underwent laparoscopic hysterectomy (LH). RESULTS The mean ages of the patients in the RAH and LH groups(More)
In this study, we aimed to investigate the association of the neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) with Global Registry of Acute Coronary Events (GRACE) risk score in patients with ST-segment elevated myocardial infarction (STEMI). We analyzed 101 consecutive patients with STEMI. Patients were divided into 3 groups by use of GRACE risk score. The(More)
The input impedance of the lung (Zin) at high frequencies (> 100 Hz) is a complex function of the airway geometry and the mechanical properties of the airway walls. To investigate how the purely geometrical factors influence Zin, we measured Zin between 16 and 1,520 Hz in six dried dog lungs with the forced oscillation technique. In each of the lungs we(More)
