Homocysteine (HMC) is a sulfur containing amino acid, which plays a role in methionine metabolism. Folic acid (FA) and vitamin B12 (B12) are essential for remethylization of HMC to methionine. HMC level increases in the deficiency of these vitamins. Hyperhomocysteinemia causes vascular endothelial damage, which causes atherosclerosis. The aim of this study(More)
Oxidative stress after traumatic brain injury may contribute to many of the pathophysiologic changes. Resveratrol, naturally present at high concentration in grape skin, seeds, and red wine, has significant antioxidant properties in a variety of in vitro and in vivo models. In this study, we investigate the effect of resveratrol on oxidative stress after(More)
This experimental study was designed to determine the effects of melatonin on the levels of malondialdehyde (MDA), reduced glutathione (GSH), xanthine oxidase (XO) after adnexial torsion/detorsion (ischemia/reperfusion, I/R) of the ovaries of in rats. Forty adult albino rats were divided into five groups: sham operation, torsion, I/R plus saline, I/R plus(More)
The objective of the present study was to investigate the possible neuroprotective effect of resveratrol against streptozotocin-induced hyperglycaemia in the rat brain and medulla spinalis. Thirty adult male Wistar rats were divided into three groups as follows: control group, streptozotocin-induced diabetic-untreated group, and streptozotocin-induced(More)
PURPOSE To prospectively evaluate diffusion-weighted (DW) magnetic resonance (MR) imaging for differentiation of postobstructive consolidation from centrally located lung carcinomas by using apparent diffusion coefficients (ADCs). MATERIALS AND METHODS An institutional review board approved this study; informed consent was obtained from patients.(More)
AIM To investigate the diagnostic value of ultrasonography in mild and moderate idiopathic carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). MATERIALS AND METHODS Cross-sectional areas (CSA), flattening ratios at three different levels, swelling ratio, and palmar displacement were analysed in 26 patients (14 with bilateral and 12 with unilateral disease, 40 wrists in total)(More)
OBJECTIVE This experimental study was designed to determine the changes in tissue levels of malondialdehyde, end-product of lipid peroxidation (MDA), reduced glutathione (GSH) and xanthine oxidase (XO) and the effect of caffeic acid (3,4-dihydroxycinnamic acid) phenethyl ester (CAPE) on these metabolite levels after adnexal torsion-detorsion model in rats.(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the alteration in anterior chamber parameters with the progression of keratoconus using a rotating Scheimpflug camera. SETTING Inonu University, Turgut Ozal Medical Center, Ophthalmology Department, Malatya, Turkey. METHODS Two hundred sixteen eyes of 123 patients diagnosed with keratoconus and 224 eyes of 112 normal subjects were(More)
BACKGROUND The clinical presentation and the preoperative and postoperative complications associated with pulmonary hydatid cysts depend on whether the cyst is intact or ruptured. The aim of this study was to review the problems encountered in treating ruptured pulmonary hydatid cysts and to highlight the risks associated with chemotherapy and the delay of(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate and compare the therapeutic effect of three different combinations in the conservative treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) by means of clinical and electrophysiological studies. The combinations included tendon- and nerve-gliding exercises in combination with splinting, ultrasound treatment in combination with(More)
