The purpose of this study was to assess outcomes of urological complications after kidney transplantation operation. Nine-hundred and sixty-five patients received a kidney transplant between 2000 and 2006. In total, 58 (6.01%) developed urological complications, including urinary leakage (n = 15, 1.55%), stenosis (n = 29, 3%), vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) (n(More)
OBJECTIVES We sought to evaluate the safety and efficacy of higher energy synchronized cardioversion in patients with atrial fibrillation refractory to standard energy direct current (DC) cardioversion. BACKGROUND Standard external electrical cardioversion fails to restore sinus rhythm in 5% to 30% of patients with atrial fibrillation. METHODS Patients(More)
A 47-year-old patient presented with syncope and recurrent episodes of polymorphic ventricular tachycardia. She had evidence of prolonged QT interval by ECG and had been taking cesium as a dietary supplement. Correction of the hypokalemia and discontinuation of the cesium resulted in normalization of the QT interval during follow-up with no further(More)
BACKGROUND We aimed to investigate the correlation between ECG QRS voltage changes, N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) levels and clinical improvement in decompensated heart failure (DHF). METHODS AND RESULTS DHF patients (n=56) with a mean age of 67.5±12.6 years showed limb QRS amplitude increase and NT-proBNP level decrease with(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe the first-year results of the first human uterus transplantation case from a multiorgan donor. DESIGN Case study. SETTING University hospital. PATIENT(S) A 21-year-old woman with complete müllerian agenesis who had been previously operated on for vaginal reconstruction. INTERVENTION(S) Uterus transplantation procedure(More)
The relation between fibronectin and coronary artery disease (CAD) according to previous study results is controversial. The aim of the present study is to investigate the predictive value of fibronectin in determining the presence and severity of CAD. Patients with stable angina (n=62) who had angiographically documented CAD, and control patients (n=31)(More)
The current trends in high performance integrated circuits are towards faster and more powerful circuits in the giga-hertz range and even further. As the more complex Integrated Circuits (IC) such as microprocessors have been entering the giga-hertz operating frequency range, various speed related roadblocks have become increasingly difficult to overcome.(More)
