Reactive oxygen molecules (ROM) have been suggested to contribute to many pathological conditions including vasculitides and renal diseases. In the present study we measured the activity of superoxide dismutase (SOD) as an antioxidant enzyme in red blood cells and the level of malondialdehyde (MDA), which is a product and an indicator of lipid peroxidation,(More)
BACKGROUND Haemodialysis patients (HD) have been characterized by a high incidence and prevalence of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. Based on the traditional cardiovascular risk factors in this population, we cannot explain this high incidence and prevalence. One of the mechanisms contributing to cardiovascular risk in HD patients may be to uraemic(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)
AIM To evaluate the role of reactive oxygen molecules (ROMs) in the pathogenesis of Henoch-Schönlein purpura and the effect of vitamin E on oxidative damage. ROMs have been suggested to contribute in many pathological conditions including renal diseases and vasculitis. METHODS The activities of superoxide dismutase (SOD) and glutathione peroxidase(More)
PURPOSE To present the successful primary stenting of a superior mesenteric artery (SMA) occlusion following failed surgical embolectomy. CASE REPORT A 65-year-old woman with a history of atrial fibrillation underwent surgical embolectomy of an acute embolic occlusion of the superior mesenteric artery (SMA). The following day, symptom recurrence suggested(More)
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)
A 44-year-old woman with hypertension was admitted because of recent onset chest pain. Coronary angiography revealed an anomalous right coronary artery originating as a separate branch from the left anterior descending artery. Associated with the present case all published case reports were thoroughly investigated and presented as a review of the literature.
