AIM To assess the outcome of deep vein thrombosis in patients with malignancy after 6 months of oral anticoagulant therapy, and to compare it with international normalized ratio (INR). METHOD Thirty-one patients with malignancy (13 with hematological and 18 with solid tumors) and deep vein thrombosis (29 leg thrombosis and 2 upper extremity thrombosis)(More)
AIM To review the results of the management of chronic post-traumatic osteomyelitis and infected non-union with bone defects of femur using the Ilizarov technique with a modified apparatus assembly. PATIENTS AND METHODS Thirty patients treated by the Ilizarov method because of chronic fistulous osteomyelitis and infected pseudoarthroses of the femur were(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Despite recent advances in surgical techniques and intensive care management, infectious complications and sepsis remain significant problem after abdominal surgery. Therefore, inflammatory parameters were looked for that could help achieve an early and more reliable diagnosis of postoperative infections. C-reactive protein (CRP) is a(More)
AIM To explore the correlation between perforating vein incompetence and the extent of great saphenous vein insufficiency according to Hach. METHODS Duplex ultrasound was used to determine the number of incompetent perforators and diameter of perforating veins, and the level of great saphenous vein reflux and the presence or absence of deep reflux in 118(More)
BACKGROUND This study was undertaken to assess the reliability of duplex scanning, as compared with digital subtraction angiography, in diagnosing peripheral arterial disease of the lower limbs. PATIENTS AND METHODS 60 legs were studied. Each leg was divided in 5 arterial segments, from aortoiliac to popliteal. Duplex scanning and digital subtraction(More)
UNLABELLED Hemodynamic and oxygen transport variables were evaluated in 34 patients with septic shock during fluid repletion and infusion of vasoconstricting and inotropic catecholamines (dopamine, dobutamine). Hypovolemia, increased cardiac output (CO), low pulmonary and systemic vascular resistance dominated in initial hypotensive status. Oxygen(More)
AIM To determine whether sequential change in coagulation parameters such as activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT), prothrombin time (PT), platelets count and fibrinogen level may predict the outcome of patients in sepsis. STUDY DESIGN Cohort longitudinal study. PATIENTS AND METHODS Patients with positive two or more clinical criteria for sepsis(More)
The authors compare, in this prospective study, the accuracy of their own clinical assessment of hemodynamic parameters and severity of disease with the findings obtained by right heart catheterization in 50 patients with septic shock. The purpose of the study was to determine whether Swan-Ganz catheter insertion was necessary in all patients with septic(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of risk factors for deep vein thrombosis (DVT) on thrombus sizes in lower extremities. The size and extent of thrombus was scored according to International Consensus Committee for venous disease classification. After the diagnosis of DVT was established and its size scored, predominant risk factors for DVT(More)
