PURPOSE Traumas are among important causes of morbidity and mortality in the pediatric group. Our aim was to evaluate the predicting effects of general trauma scores on mortality and morbidity rates. METHODS The files of 74 patients, who were admitted to our hospital with trauma between the years 2006 and 2008, were retrospectively investigated. Patients'(More)
The number of reported coexistences of ordinary lipoma and spindle cell lipoma is very limited in the literature. We present a patient with neighboring large spindle cell lipoma and ordinary lipoma in the posterior neck. Clinical, radiologic, and histologic findings of the case are presented with distinguished figures. Complete surgical removal confirmed(More)

METHODS Computer records of 399 patients (207 men and 192 women) referred for high-resolution CT examinations were evaluated for presence, shape, width, and distance from the nasion. (More)

Furthermore, IRF-1(More)
Due to its unique composition, the reconstruction of scrotal skin defects is a major clinical challenge. This study was designed to evaluate the effects of scrotal reconstruction, using skin grafts and skin flaps, on spermatogenesis. In Group 1, the rats did not undergo surgery and were used as controls. In Group 2, after removal of all of the scrotal skin(More)
This study was performed to experimentally evaluate the viability and coverage of diced cartilage grafts for cranial defects. Biparietal bone defects were prepared in each of 20 rabbits. Otogenous bone grafts were fixed to one side, whereas cartilage grafts taken from the right ear, diced, and wrapped with oxidized regenerated cellulose (Surgicel) were(More)
