BACKGROUND Ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury induces an inflammatory response and production of reactive oxygen species (ROS), which affects the organs remote to the sites of I/R. The aim was to assess the hepatic changes after renal I/R injury. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty mice were subjected to either sham operation or varying degrees of renal I/R(More)
Shoulder pain (SP) is frequently mentioned in recent literature following laparoscopic operations. In the literature, many causes have been declared to explain shoulder pain after CO2 insufflation, such as direct peritoneal irritation of the CO2 gas, excessive traction of the triangular ligament, and overstretching of the diaphragmatic muscle fibers due to(More)
OBJECTIVE Gallbladder is one of the most commonly encountered specimen in a pathology laboratory. A diverse spectrum of diseases affect the biliary system, often presenting with similar clinical signs and symptoms. We aimed to define the profile of gallbladder diseases in our region, and to determine potential correlations between histopathologic features(More)
BACKGROUND Free radicals induced by several diseases can trigger oxidative stress, leading to the production of malondialdehyde (MDA) and protein carbonyl content (CB). Volatile agents are able to increase the extent of oxidative status. However, the effects of these agents together with pneumoperitonium (Pp) have not been reported. We aimed to investigate(More)
BACKGROUND To investigate the relationship between oxidative stress and pro-inflammatory response of the renal tissue at different ischemia times in I/R mice. METHODS Twenty-four male Swiss dormice were subjected to 30, 45 or 60 minutes of ischemia and then 60 minutes of reperfusion (Group 1 I 30/R60, Group 2, .I45/R60, and Group 3, I 60/R60(More)
Idiopathic granulomatous mastitis (IGM) is a rare, benign, and chronic disease of the breast. Despite the various treatment approaches described for this disease, a gold standard treatment modality has not yet been defined. In this study, the effect of topical steroids was reviewed and assessed in patients with IGM. The records of patients with IGM who were(More)
We carried out an experimental study in dogs to evaluate the outcome of large bowel anastomosis with 6 stitches (Group C, n : 6) in a septic environment with protection by a polyglycolic acid (PGA) mesh (Group M, n : 12) or peritoneal graft (Group P, n : 12). Thirty dogs were used to compare the techniques. Two dogs in each group were re-operated after 3,(More)
Thyroidectomy is one of the most common operations performed for thyroid diseases throughout the world and has an extremely low morbidity rate. Although the technique of thyroidectomy has changed little for several years, different techniques have been developed for haemostasis in addition to the conventional methods. The vessel sealing system (Ligasure) is(More)
Background: Despite the reduced rate of occurrence, the hydatidosis of the liver is still taking an important place in surgical practice in Asia Minor and the Middle East. Traditional techniques for performing liver cyst surgery seem to be comparatively traumatic. In this clinical study, we present our experience with laparoscopic treatment of hydatid cyst(More)
Can J Surg, Vol. 50, No. 4, August 2007 301 H hydatid cysts (HCs), especially those that are superficial and those in vital anatomic locations, are prone to abdominal trauma and rupture. Surgery has been the mainstay of therapy for large HCs. We report on a patient with a 32-cm diameter HC who presented with an abdominal mass originating from the right lobe(More)
