SETTING Beyoğlu Eye Training and Research Hospital. DESIGN Prospective comparative case series. METHODS Sixty eyes from 30(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the effect of uncomplicated phacoemulsification surgery on macula by optical coherence tomography (OCT). METHODS A total of 110 eyes of 102 patients who underwent uncomplicated phacoemulsification and foldable intraocular lens implantation at Beyoglu Eye Research and Training Hospital between February and March 2005 and who were(More)
BACKGROUND Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is a rare neoplasm that comprises a substantial proportion of all leukemias in middle-aged persons and is the most common type among elderly persons. The major causes are not known nor is there a detailed understanding about how the elusive origin(s) may relate to clinical expression, basic biological(More)
Oxidative stress is an important pathophysiological mechanism in nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). To assess whether there are relationships between oxidative stress and antioxidant enzymes in the development of NASH, we investigated oxidative stress by measuring serum malondialdehyde (MDA) and nitric oxide (NO) and antioxidant status by measuring serum(More)

OBJECTIVE Adenosine deaminase (ADA) is involved in purine metabolism and plays a significant role in the mechanisms of the immune system. The aim of this study was to investigate the correlation between the activity of total ADA (tADA) and isoenzymes ADA1 and ADA2 and clinical activity in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). METHODS The study(More)
PURPOSE To compare the rates of lens epithelial cell (LEC) migration and posterior capsule opacification (PCO) 1 and 3 years after sutureless small incision phacoemulsification and in-the-bag implantation of 2 acrylic polymer intraocular lenses (IOLs)-the AcrySof and MemoryLens-in fellow eyes of patients. SETTING Eye Clinic, Beyoğlu Education and Research(More)
PURPOSE To compare effects of small-incision lenticule extraction (SMILE) and femtosecond laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (F-LASIK) on corneal sensation and dry eye parameters. METHODS In this prospective, randomized, contralateral-eye study, 28 patients with myopia or myopic astigmatism in both eyes were enrolled. One eye of each patient was(More)
