BACKGROUND The aim of this study was toreport our experience regarding the use of three different methods for intramedullary nailing in the treatment of intertrochanteric fractures. METHODS Patients with A2 and A3 type fractures operated on for unstable trochanteric fractures were included into this retrospective cohort study. Patients were divided into(More)
OBJECTIVE Timing of surgery in hip fracture patients using antiplatelet agents is a controversial issue. Clopidogrel is an antiplatelet drug widely used in the treatment of many diseases. In this study, we aimed to investigate the outcomes of early surgery in hip fracture patients using clopidogrel. METHODS Elderly patients with femoral neck fractures who(More)
This prospective randomized pilot study reports our institutional experience and early results using Sonoma Wrx (Sonoma Orthopedic Products, Santa Rosa, CA) in the treatment of extra-articular and simple intra-articular distal radius fractures. A total of 64 patients, were enrolled in the study. They were considered eligible if they had; unstable(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the midterm effects of transradial coronary angiography (TRCAG) on the radial and brachial artery diameter, the vasodilator characteristics, as well as to assess the factors determining functional recovery. This study included 136 consecutive patients who underwent TRCAG. The radial artery was evaluated with(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM The objective of this study was to assess the potential role of mitral regurgitation (MR) in the release of copeptin in heart failure patients with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF). METHODS The study included 63 patients of whom 33 had functional mild MR (Group 1) and 30 had functional severe MR (Group 2). The functional class of both(More)
Spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD) remains a rare cause of acute coronary syndrome. SCAD has been observed in three groups of patients: those with coronary atherosclerosis, women in the peripartum period, and an idiopathic group. SCAD may also be associated with some other conditions. Herein, we present a 57 year-old man who developed SCAD(More)
BACKGROUND Atrial fibrillation is the most common clinically significant arrhythmia. It is now established that atrial high-rate episodes are highly correlated with atrial fibrillation. AIMS To investigate the relation between diastolic electrocardiographic parameters and subclinical atrial fibrillation detected by cardiac implantable electronic devices.(More)
Drug-induced torsades de pointes (TdP) is a rare but potentially fatal adverse effect of commonly prescribed medications including cardiac and noncardiac drugs. Importantly, many drugs have been reported to cause the characteristic Brugada syndrome-linked electrocardiography (ECG) abnormalities and/or (fatal) ventricular tachyarrhythmias.
