In patients with chronic renal failure, mechanical and hemodynamic changes could occur in the lungs without obvious pulmonary symptoms and findings and their effects could pave the way to pulmonary functional disorders. In this study, pulmonary functional disorders and especially alveolocapillary defects, which are frequently seen in uremia, were determined(More)
BACKGROUND Long-term consequences of kidney donation are not well known. Most of the studies published were focused on renal risk. In this prospective study, we investigated the changes in cardiovascular function after kidney donation. METHODS Thirty-eight living kidney donors were included. In addition to 24-hr ambulatory blood pressure monitoring, serum(More)
In this study, we retrospectively evaluated all attacks of diarrhoea in our renal transplant recipients that came to our medical attention between 1985 and 2000. Also, the clinical features of patients with diarrhoea were compared with the features of recipients without diarrhoea. We diagnosed 41 attacks of diarrhoea in 39 (12.6%) of 308 renal transplant(More)
This study was performed to determine risk factors associated with osteoporosis that develops after renal transplantation. Sixty-five kidney graft recipients were included in this study. They were divided into four groups according to the time since transplantation: Group 1 (< 1 year; n = 26), group 2 (1-3 years; n = 16), group 3 (3-5 years; n = 12) and(More)
We sought to compare the treatment modalities of alendronate, alfacalcidol, and alendronate combined with alfacalcidol in renal transplant recipients with low bone mineral density. Sixty-four kidney graft recipients (22 women, 42 men) were recruited to this study. Of these 64 patients, 9 served as the control group with T scores more than -1. The remaining(More)
OBJECTIVE Obstructive jaundice develops after occlusion of the common bile duct. Direct hyperbilirubinaemia, which occurs secondary to the condition, causes various life-threatening pathologies. Cytoprotective effects of Ganoderma lucidum (GL) have previously been shown. In this study, the effects of GL on oxidative stress and oxidant DNA damage in(More)
Chylous effusions and lymphatic leaks occur after trauma, malignant disease, primary lymphatic disorders, and parasitosis, and rarely after abdominal surgery. Chylous ascites after orthotopic liver transplantation is a rare complication. We report a case of chylous ascites occurring after hepatic transplantation with a mesentero-portal venous jump graft,(More)
HYPOTHESIS Tumor implantation (TI) development at the surgical wound following cancer surgery is still an unresolved concern. Trocar site recurrence, which is likely a form of TI, has become one of the most controversial topics and, with the widespread acceptance of laparoscopic surgery, has caused renewed interest in questions about TI. Honey has positive(More)
BACKGROUND In the presence of decreased glomerular filtration rate (GFR), the risk of morbidity and mortality caused by cardiovascular disease (CVD) is increased markedly. Increased coronary artery calcification (CAC) is proposed as a pathogenetic link between CVD and chronic kidney disease. We examined the frequency and severity of CAC in living kidney(More)
BACKGROUND AND RESULTS By the end 2000, 22224 patients were on renal replacement therapy (RRT) in Turkey. We investigated the cost of RRT in three medical faculties and one private dialysis centre. Yearly expenses were US dollars 22759 for haemodialysis (HD), US dollars 22350 for continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD), and US dollars 23393 and US(More)
