Spontaneous perforation of gastric cancer is a serious complication with a very high incidence of mortality. In order to evaluate the prognostic factors influencing mortality in patients with gastric tumour perforations and to clarify the optimal surgical treatment, the records of patients at one centre during a 5-year period were evaluated retrospectively.(More)
BACKGROUND Cyanoacrylates have been advocated as a protective seal in colonic anastomosis to prevent leakage. In order to assess the effects of n-butyl-2-cyanoacrylate on left colonic anastomosis it was compared to the sutured anastomosis in the rat. METHODS Forty male Wistar albino rats were divided into two groups of 20 each. On days 3 and 7, 10 animals(More)
Background: Elective laparoscopic cholecystectomy (LC) has a low risk for infective complications, but many surgeons still use prophylactic antibiotics. The use of prophylactic antibiotics for LC is inconsistent and varies widely among surgeons. Methods: We performed a prospective double-blind randomized study of prophylactic antibiotics in elective LC.(More)
Surgical resection remains the only potentially curative treatment of patients with gastric cancer. Evaluation of surgery and other treatments depends on accurate staging of the disease. The objective of the study was to compare staging laparoscopy with ultrasonography, endoscopic ultrasound, computed tomography, and histology for serosal infiltration,(More)
INTRODUCTION Involvement of regional lymph node is a critical sign in prognosis of gastric cancer. Radiological techniques are commonly used to evaluate the extension of gastric cancer. But their sensitivity and specificity are low especially in the early stage. Our aim was to assess the value of gastric lymphoscintigraphy in identifying regional lymph node(More)
A case of primary hydatid disease, a rare location, is presented. The patient was a 20 year old female who presented with complaining of painful mass in the right hypochondrium 2 months before presantation. This cyst was strongly adherent to the two layers of m.rectus abdominis fascias. It was completely removed. No other site of hydatid disease was found(More)
A case of primary hydatid disease of the thyroid, a rare location, is presented. The patient was a 50-year-old woman who presented with a neck mass at the thyroid region, which was noticed 2 months before her presentation. Although the clinical impression was of a neoplastic lesion (adenoma or carcinoma), a hydatid cyst was considered intraoperatively and(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the risk factor that influence mortality from perforated peptic ulcer. DESIGN Retrospective study. SETTING Ankara Numune Teaching and Research Hospital, Ankara, Turkey. SUBJECTS A total of 342 patients with perforated peptic ulcer disease were identified from April 1997 to January 2004. Data for the patients were extracted from the(More)
BACKGROUND Gastric cancer continues to be a significant health problem around the world. Surgical resection with a lymph node dissection remains the only potentially curative treatment with gastric cancer. Determination of the extent of lymph node dissection required on the basis of actual node involvement in patients with gastric cancer is important as(More)
Before being superseded by medical management, highly selective vagotomy (HSV) without drainage was the procedure of choice for uncomplicated duodenal ulcer. It is also justified for complications, including perforation and bleeding in selected cases. This prospective study evaluated the effects of HSV plus drainage on solid gastric emptying in 20 patients(More)
