In the present study, the effects of dexmedetomidine on secondary lung and kidney injuries were studied in the rat model of intra-abdominal sepsis by immunohistological and biochemical examinations. We measured serum creatinine, kidney tissue malondialdehide and plasma neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin levels. In order to evaluate tissue injury we(More)
Sepsis and septic shock are are among the major causes of mortality in intensive care units. The lung and kidney are the organs most affected by sepsis. Evidence exists that lipid peroxidation and apoptosis may be responsible for the high mortality due to sepsis. Ischemic preconditioning (IP) is a method for the protection of tissues and organs against(More)
BACKGROUND It is known that hypoxic pulmonary vasoconstriction increases as a result of intermittent regional hypoxic challenges. The aim of this study was to compare the effects of sevoflurane and propofol on oxygenation and shunt fraction during one-lung ventilation in a novel model of hypoxic preconditioning before one-lung ventilation. METHODS Sixteen(More)
We studied the article by Yeganeh Mogadam et al. (1) with great interest, " comparison of analgesic effect between gabapentin and diclofenac on Post-Operative Pain in Patients Undergoing Tonsillectomy ". The authors had demonstrated that administration of preoperative ga-bapentin and diclofenac significantly reduced postop-erative pain, and the amount of(More)
The mechanisms of aluminum (Al) neurotoxicity is of increasing interest. Al compounds are known to produce neurological and behavioral abnormalities in some mammalian species. The present study was designed to determine the effects of Al chloride on the skilled motor performance in mice on the rota-rod treadmill. Al chloride, depending on the duration of(More)
