INTRODUCTION Endothelial damage caused by high pressure applied for spasm relaxation during graft preparation is one of the most plausible theories explaining early graft failure. AIM OF THE STUDY We aimed to demonstrate the extent of endothelial damage in saphenous vein grafts distended to different pressure levels by using immunohistochemical methods(More)
This study investigated the role of systemic inflammation in the development of atrial fibrillation (AF) after coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). CABG was performed using cardiopulmonary bypass in 77 patients. Pre-operative AF was present in six patients (7.8%) and postoperative AF developed in 13 (18.3%) of the 71 patients with pre-operative sinus(More)
BACKGROUND Vascular complications of cardiac catheterization have increased in line with increasing number of percutaneous interventions. Open repair is the standard method of treatment for true and false aneurysms of femoral artery. We report results of patients operated due to femoral artery pseudoaneurysm after cardiac catheterization. METHODS Data(More)
BACKGROUND We aimed to compare patient-controlled thoracic or lumbar epidural analgesia methods after thoracotomy operations. METHODS One hundred and twenty patients were prospectively randomized to receive either thoracic epidural analgesia (TEA group) or lumbar epidural analgesia (LEA group). In both groups, epidural catheters were administered.(More)
Background Neurohumoral and hemodynamic mechanisms have an effect on cardiac activity. C-type natriuretic peptide (CNP) is accessible in the cardiovascular system. The aim of this study was to determine whether CNP concentrations in pericardial fluid and blood are related to cardiac dysfunction in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass graft surgery.(More)
OBJECTIVES Ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) damage of the lung is a frequently encountered complication following aortic surgery. The aim of the present study is to investigate the histopathological effects of Iloprost on pulmonary damage developed after I/R. DESIGN Twenty-four Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly divided into 3 groups. In the control group,(More)
Background: To evaluate the presence of C. pneumoniae DNA in the tissues and C. pneumoniae DNA antibodies in the blood samples of patients who underwent CABG surgery. Material and Methods: Fifty-one patients <50 years of age were included in the study, and analyzed in two groups according to the intimal thickness of aorta. C. pneumoniae DNA was evaluated in(More)
Objective We evaluated the effect of surgeon experience on complication and mortality rates of carotid endarterectomy operation. Methods Fifty-nine consecutive patients who underwent carotid endarterectomy between January 2013 and February 2016 were divided into two groups. Patients who had been operated by surgeons performing carotid endarterectomy for(More)
