BACKGROUND Calcium dobesilate (CaD) is a member of the synthetic veno-active drug family. Only a small number of reports are available that describe the micro-angiogenic effects of CaD in the current literature. MATERIAL AND METHODS The antiangiogenic potential of CaD was compared with bevacizumab (Bb), which is a potent angiogenesis inhibitor, in a chick(More)
Ischemia reperfusion injuries can be threatening to end organ viability and can progress, with mortal and morbid outcomes. In particular, neural tissues are highly sensitive to hypoxia and reperfusion stress. This study aimed to determine the neuroprotective effects of rosuvastatin on spinal cord ischemia reperfusion injury. Forty male Sprague- Dawley rats(More)
Chronic venous insufficiency may cause stasis ulcers that significantly impact on the quality of life. Many methods have been described for preventing or treating these ulcers. However, stasis ulcers often recur as a result of continuing venous insufficiency. Here we report a 30-year-old male patient with chronic venous insufficiency. He was admitted to the(More)
BACKGROUND Various adverse effects of homologous blood transfusion detected particularly in open heart surgery, in which it is frequently used, lead researchers to study on autologous blood use and to evaluate the patient's blood better. Due to the complications of homologous blood transfusion, development of techniques that utilize less transfusion has(More)
Takayasu's arteritis (TA) is a chronic inflammatory granulomatous vasculitis which affects large and medium arterial vessels. The disease involves especially subclavian arteries and aortic branches but it can consist of any arteries. The major pathology is granulomatous panarteritis with intima proliferation and defects of the elastic lamina of the vessels.(More)
OBJECTIVE Mesenteric arteries release C-type natriuretic peptide (CNP), which hyperpolarises vascular smooth muscle. We measured the levels of this peptide after inducing mesenteric ischaemia over a series of time intervals, so as to determine its predictive value in demonstrating the severity of ischaemia in a rat model. METHODS A total of 32 rats were(More)
OBJECTIVES Biochemical markers are important for the timely diagnosis and follow-up of ischemic events. Most of the markers have been previously studied in the context of cardiac ischemia. However, research on markers of non-cardiac events has been insufficient. Therefore, we investigated the relationship between troponin and myoglobin which are commonly(More)
BACKGROUND Ventricular shunts are used to drain cerebrospinal fluid into extra-cranial spaces. Ventriculoatrial (VA) shunts are provided to transfer cerebrospinal fluid from the cerebral ventricle into the right atrium of the heart. A single center experience of indications, procedure, and clinical outcomes in VA shunt was presented in current study. (More)
