BACKGROUND Although primary malignant CNS tumors are registered in the national cancer registry (NCR) of Iran, there are no available data on the incidence of the primary malignant or benign CNS tumors and their common histopathologies in the country. This study analyzed the 10-year data of the Iranian NCR from March 21, 2000 to March 20, 2010, including a(More)
BACKGROUND CNS tumors are the leading cause of cancer related deaths among children and adolescents. Nonetheless, the incidence of pediatric CNS tumors in developing countries is poorly understood. We aimed to provide epidemiologic features of primary malignant CNS tumors in Iranian children 0-19 years of age using National Cancer Registry (NCR) data bank.(More)
BACKGROUND We aimed to determine factors associated with mortality rates in patients with traumatic brain injury (TBI). METHODS Registered data of a national trauma project conducted in eight major cities in Iran during a five-year period were used. Patients with a TBI were identified and both univariate and multivariate analyses were performed. RESULTS(More)
BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVE To determine the prevalence of traumatic spinal cord injury (SCI) in Tehran, Iran. METHODS A population-based study was performed. In a random cluster sampling, 100 addresses were selected as the starting point of the survey for each cluster consisting of 25 households. To expand the geographic dimension of each cluster, the(More)
Estrogen is established to influence lipoprotein metabolism and inflammatory markers. Alternations in estrogen receptor alpha (ESR1) expression and function may affect the role of estrogen in this regard. The aim of this study was to determine whether ESR1 PvuII and XbaI gene polymorphisms have effects on lipoprotein (a) as well as inflammatory variables in(More)
BACKGROUND In patients aged 1-34 years, injury is the leading cause of mortality, disability and health care costs. Two to 3% of Level I trauma patients have peripheral nerve injury (PNI). METHODS Data were collected from the Iran National Trauma Registry database, compiled according to the International Classification of Diseases, 9th revision (ICD9)(More)
BACKGROUND Road traffic injuries (RTIs) are a substantial cause of mortality and disability globally. There is little published information regarding healthcare resource utilization following RTIs, especially in low and middle-income countries (LMICs). The aim of this study was to assess total hospital charges and length of stay (LOS) associated with RTIs(More)

DESIGN AND SETTING Cross-sectional study of trauma patients treated at six general hospitals in Tehran. (More)
Despite the vast improvements of cell therapy in spinal cord injury treatment, no optimum protocol has been developed for application of neural stem/progenitor cells. In this regard, the present meta-analysis showed that the efficacy of the neural stem/progenitor cell (NSPC) transplantation depends mainly on injury model, intervention phase, transplanted(More)
