1124 Figure 1 LS-neon 1124 that paracetamol could be used as an alternative for infants who are either ibuprofen-resistant or for whom ibuprofen is contraindicated. Further prospective randomized-controlled trials are needed to evaluate the efficacy of paracetamol for the closure of PDA. THE EFFECT OF HEPARIN INFUSION ON DEVELOPMENT OF THROMBOSİS SECONDARY(More)
OBJECTIVE Endothelins (ET) can be considered stress-responsive regulators working in paracrine and autocrine fashion. It has been suggested that elevated levels of ET may be responsible for the low coronary re-flow phenomena. Ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) was shown to stimulate ET release in rat heart; however, the mechanism(s) of this effect has not been(More)
The relationship between Behçet's disease (BD) and platelet aggregation has not sufficiently been investigated yet. Mean platelet volume (MPV) is a marker of platelet function, and the increase in MPV has been identified as an independent risk factor of recurrent vascular events. BD is characterized by a relapsing vasculitis of the venous as well as(More)
BACKGROUND Slow coronary flow (SCF) in a normal coronary angiogram is a well-recognized clinical entity, but its etiopathogenesis remains unclear. DESIGN The aim of the study was to determine endothelial function in patients with SCF using a flow-mediated dilatation (FMD) technique in the brachial artery. METHODS Coronary flow was quantified using the(More)
Although we found lack of a decrease in nocturnal blood pressure, impaired heart rate variability, and diastolic dysfunction in patients with Behcet's disease, we could not demonstrate whether or not this finding has a prognostic value in patients with this disease.
OBJECTIVE Hepatic steatosis is a common companion of obesity. Moreover, the measurement of epicardial adipose tissue (EAT) has been reported to be related with both obesity and insulin resistance. Therefore, we aimed to evaluate the relationship between hepatic steatosis, EAT and insulin resistance in obese patients. METHODS Sixty-three obese subjects(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to investigate any changes in mean platelet volume (MPV) in patients with neonatal sepsis (NS). METHODS Subjects were stratified into two groups: proven sepsis (Group 1a) and clinical sepsis (Group 1b). The control group (Group 2) consisted of healthy newborns matched for gestational age and birth weight. RESULTS A(More)
AIMS The aim of this study was to evaluate the left ventricular (LV) systolic strain by speckle tracking echocardiography (STE) in order to provide the early detection of myocardial dysfunction in patients with Behcet's disease (BD). We also aimed to examine the relationship between LV systolic strain and N-terminal pro-B type natriuretic peptide(More)
BACKGROUND Colchicine poisoning is potentially life-threatening. Deaths generally result from hypovolemic shock and cardiovascular collapse or secondary to rapidly progressive multiorgan failure. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study is to discuss the clinical effects, treatments and outcomes of pediatric colchicine poisoning and highlight the possible(More)
BACKGROUND/AIM To determine whether there is an association between platelet counts and patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) incidence and/or closure in preterm newborns. STUDY DESIGN AND SUBJECTS Premature infants with hemodynamically significant PDA (n=154) and a control group without PDA (n=207) who were hospitalized in the NICU were retrospectively(More)
