BACKGROUND Colistin (COL) has become the backbone of the treatment of infections due to extensively drug-resistant (XDR) Gram-negative bacteria. The most common restriction to its use is acute kidney injury (AKI). METHODS We conducted a retrospective cohort study to evaluate risk factors for new-onset AKI in patients receiving COL. The cohort consisted of(More)
BACKGROUND We compared the analgesic effects of intravenous (IV) paracetamol with that of dexketoprofen on postoperative pain and morphine consumption during the first 24 hour after a lumbar disk surgery. METHODS This prospective, placebo-controlled, double blind study investigated the analgesic effects of IV paracetamol and dexketoprofen on postoperative(More)
Mucopolysaccharidoses (MPSs) are a group of metabolic diseases transmitted in an autosomal recessive fashion. MPSs are due to deficiencies of the specific enzymes responsible for the catabolism of dermatan sulfate, heparin sulfate, and keratan sulfate, resulting in the accumulation of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs). MPSs have a chronic, progressive course with(More)
Friedreich's Ataxia (FA) is a rare autosomal recessive disease. FA is clinically characterized by progressive ataxia, especially loss of reflex and power in the lower extremities, spasticity and loss of proprioceptive sensory. There is an increased sensitivity to non-depolarizing muscle relaxants in neurodegenerative diseases. Care must be taken of(More)
Management of airway in patients who have Coffin-Siris syndrome (CSS) is often problematic because most of these patients have difficult airway. NTI via C-MAC VL is an useful alternative to direct laryngoscope for orotracheal intubation in airway and anesthetic management in a case of CSS. Alternative airway devices should be readily available.
Anesthesia management of preterm infants is challenging for the anesthesiologist. Because of the rudimentary build of the infants, many medical and physical problems have been observed in the treatment of the disease such as complications, airway problems, temperature disregulation and deficient drug metabolism. This retrospective study evaluates the(More)
Klippel Feil Syndrome (KFS) is a congenital malformation which has a failure of segmantation of cervical somites in the 8th weeks of gestation and fusion at least two cervical segments. It is described as the triad of short neck, low posterior hairline and decreased range of neck motions. Especially decreased range of neck motions lead many(More)
Epidermolysis bullosa (EB) is a rare disease characterised by vesiculobullous lesions with minimal trauma to the skin and mucous membranes. Bleeding, scar tissue, contractures, oedema and lesions that can spread throughout the body can cause a difficult airway and vascular access in patients with EB. Therefore, anaesthetic management in patients with EB is(More)
