PURPOSE This study aimed at comparing short-term outcomes of patients who underwent robotic-assisted laparoscopic myomectomy and laparoscopic myomectomy. METHODS 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(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)
PURPOSE To compare the results of patients on whom staging was applied by robotic-assisted laparoscopic surgery and laparotomy for endometrial cancer. METHOD 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(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the feasibility and surgical outcome of laparoscopy-assisted surgery for large adnexal cysts. METHODS 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(More)
PURPOSE To present the outcomes of the first 25 robotic-assisted hysterectomies from Turkey. METHOD 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(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)
OBJECTIVES Metabolic syndrome (MetS) is associated with increased cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. There is evidence of platelet activation in MetS. Mean platelet volume (MPV), a determinant of platelet activation, is a newly emerging risk factor for atherothrombosis. Therefore, we investigated the possible association between subclinical(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)
OBJECTIVE To assess surgical outcomes for robot-assisted tubal reanastomosis in a single institution. MATERIALS AND METHODS Between March 2009 and January 2010, 10 patients underwent robot-assisted tubal ligation reversal (TLR) with a da Vinci S surgical system. Patient demographic data, including operative times, operative and postoperative(More)
