Proanthocyanidins are potent natural antioxidants which belong to a class of polyphenols. Proanthocyanidin-rich extracts are prepared from grape seeds. The effect of grape seed proanthocyanidin extract (GSPE) on the viability of abdominal skin flaps exposed to warm ischaemia and subsequent reperfusion were studied in 40 male Wistar rats. In the control(More)
Calcinosis cutis, deposition of insoluble calcium salts in cutaneous tissues, is an uncommon disorder. This condition can be classified as metastatic, dystrophic, idiopathic, and iatrogenic based on the pathogenesis of the deposition. Whereas dystrophic calcinosis cutis is a fairly common condition, idiopathic cases are very rare. Distinct cutaneous(More)
Multiple myeloma is a systemic malignant disease and is associated with a poor prognosis. It is characterized by neoplastic proliferation of plasma cells involved in the production and secretion of monoclonal immunoglobulins (M proteins). It is generally a disseminated disease involving many bones. Systemic symptoms include bone pain, pathologic fracture,(More)
BACKGROUND Although several different methods were described in the literature, closure of large meningomyelocele defects presents a challenging problem. Wound dehiscence may lead to devastating complications. In this paper, the efficacy of the bilateral modified V-Y advancement flap procedure was investigated in terms of simplicity, donor-site morbidity,(More)
Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common form of cancer in Caucasians. This study was undertaken to define clinical features of BCC treated by surgical excision in Turkish patients. One-hundred and ninety-eight patients with 216 BCC, all treated by surgical excision, were studied prospectively. Age and sex distribution, personal and family history,(More)
Currently, various alloplastic materials are being used for reconstruction of three-dimensional structures, and high-density porous polyethylene is so far the best and the most commonly used material. Various indications for high-density porous polyethylene have been defined for closure of craniofacial defects, correction of congenital anomalies, and(More)
Sildenafil is a cyclic guanosine-specific phosphodiesterase type 5 (PD-5) inhibitor that is widely used for erectile dysfunction. Potent and competitive inhibition of PD-5 enhances levels of cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP). Fibrin glue-apart from tissue fixation-has been used for slow release of drugs. In this study, local delivery of Sildenafil(More)
Numerous autogenous and alloplastic materials have been used for restoration of contour deformities of the face. Alloplastic materials have come into use to replace autogeneous bone grafts because bone grafts are associated with donor site morbidity, resorption and difficulty in shaping. Porous high-density polyethylene (HDPPE) is a commercial product which(More)
BACKGROUND All kinds of bees, wasps, and hornets are members of the hymenoptera order. Local hypersensitivity reactions after bee stings are very common and well studied. However, tissue necroses following untreated bee stings are extremely rare and they are not well documented. OBJECTIVE Two extremely rare cases of extensive skin and soft tissue necrosis(More)
BACKGROUND The achievement of the kinetic functions of a finger in full range of motion after the injury and the repair of the flexor tendon has been a challenging issue in hand surgery. Several current studies emphasize the importance of the tendon sheath for the healing of the tendon and for the prevention of the adhesive bands and advise primary repair(More)
