OBJECTIVE To investigate the effect of misoprostol in the reduction of adhesion formation after gynecological surgery. STUDY DESIGN A double blind, randomized controlled experimental study was designed. Twenty-one female Wistar Hannover rats were divided into three groups as control, misoprostol and Hyalobarrier(®) groups. A uterine horn adhesion model(More)
Granular cell tumour (GCT), which is a rare benign soft tissue neoplasm, is mostly found in the skin and soft tissue but may develop anywhere in the body. There are less than 10 reported cases of mediastinal GCTs in the current literature. Furthermore, colonic GCTs have recently gained attention due to the increased public awareness on the importance of(More)
Hypophysitis is an inflammation of the pituitary gland and includes a heterogeneous group of diseases presenting with impaired pituitary gland function. Hundreds of cases have been reported after Goudie and Pinkerton's initial report on a young postpartum woman who died after progressive lymphocytic infiltration of the adenohypophysis in 1962. A 17-year-old(More)
The study aim is to evaluate the placental histopathological characteristics and maternal risk factors in preterm and term births according to their weeks of gestation. We designed a prospective study involving a patient population (n = 355) composed of pregnant women who delivered preterm (n = 216) and term neonates (n = 139). The preterm births were(More)
A retrospective study was conducted to identify the factors related to locoregional recurrence in patients who underwent curative resections for primary rectal cancer between January 1986 and April 1994 at Ankara Oncology Hospital in Turkey. A step-wise logistic regression analysis was applied for 116 patients who had complete follow-up. Age, sex,(More)
BACKGROUND Post-hepatectomy liver insufficiency is one of the most serious postoperative problems and its prevention is important after major hepatic resection, especially in the cirrhotic liver. Some growth factors and cytokines appear to play important roles in liver regeneration. In the present study we have investigated the effects of(More)
AIM To evaluate endoscopic and histopathologic aspects of acute gastric injury due to ingestion of high-dose acetaminophen and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) with respect to some risk factors and patient characteristics. METHODS The study group consists of 50 patients admitted to emergency department with high dose analgesic ingestion(More)
OBJECTIVE Eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) is diagnosed with the presence of characteristic esophageal symptoms and eosinophilic infiltration of the esophageal mucosa after other causes of eosinophilia are excluded. EoE has been reported to co-occur with some allergic diseases. In this study, we evaluated the co-existence of EoE in Ear-Nose-Throat (ENT)(More)
Our aim is to identify maternal risk factors and to determine placental histopathologies in preterm stillbirths. We designed a prospective study involving a patient population (n = 136) composed of singleton stillbirth (n = 40) and singleton live-born neonates (n = 96) between 23 0/7 and 36 6/7 weeks of gestation. We divided the stillbirths into groups of(More)
Hemangiopericytoma is an uncommon mesenchymal tumor originating from pericytes. We describe the clinical and morphologic features in a case of intrathoracic extrapulmonary giant hemangiopericytoma. The tumor was radically removed, and the microscopy report was benign hemangiopericytoma. Because of the high risk of local recurrence, long-term follow-up is(More)
