Clinical hyperthyroidism is found in approximately 5% of women with a hydatidiform mole, as human chorionic gonadotropin secreted by molar tissue is structurally similar to thyroid-stimulating hormone. A hydatidiform mole occasionally presents with a co-existing viable fetus. Surgical evacuation may be indicated for significant hemorrhage or preeclampsia.(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the anaesthetic and convulsive effects of sevoflurane/remifentanil versus propofol/remifentanil combination in electroconvulsive therapy (ECT). METHODS In this prospective, randomized double-blind study, patients diagnosed with treatment-resistant depression were included for ECT. Prior to treatment, 1 µg/kg remifentanil was(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to compare the effects of propofol and N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) on tourniquet-induced ischaemia-reperfusion injury by determining malonyldialdehyde, ischaemia-modified albumin, lactate, blood gas and haemodynamic levels in arthroscopic knee surgery. METHODS Sixty ASA I or II patients were randomized into(More)
OBJECTIVE Lung injury induced by one-lung ventilation is rare, but it is a condition that may result in high mortality. This study evaluates the effects of one-lung ventilation and occlusion time on collapsed and contralateral lungs. METHODS Sprague-Dawley rats were allocated randomly into 7 groups consisting of 6 animals each: sham; O1, 1 hour of(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE The insertion of skull pins into the periosteum induces not only a haemodynamic response but also an increase in stress hormones. We compared the effects of scalp-nerve block, infiltration anaesthesia, and routine anaesthesia during skull-pin insertion on haemodynamic and stress responses to craniotomy. METHODS Forty-five ASA I or(More)
PURPOSE This study was intended to investigate the effect of dexmedetomidine on oxidative stress response in pneumoperitoneum established in rats. METHODS Animals were randomized into three groups, group S: with no pneumoperitoneum, group P: with pneumoperitoneum established, and group D: given 100 mcg intraperitoneal dexmedetomidine 30 min before(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine the effects of dexmedetomidine on pneuomoperitoneum-related ischaemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury in rat ovarian tissue. STUDY DESIGN Animals were randomized into three groups: Group S (n=8), no pneumoperitoneum; Group C (n=8), pneumoperitoneum; and Group D (n=8), 100μg intraperitoneal dexmedetomidine 30min before pneumoperitoneum.(More)
Nerve damage may occur in the pharyngolaryngeal region during general anesthesia. The most frequently injured nerves are the hypoglossal, lingual and recurrent laryngeal. These injuries may arise in association with several factors, such as laryngoscopy, endotracheal intubation and tube insertion, cuff pressure, mask ventilation, the triple airway maneuver,(More)
PURPOSE This study examined the effectiveness of dexmedetomidine in preventing lung injury resulting from pneumoperitoneum in a ventilated rat model. METHODS Animals (n=18) were allocated randomly into 3 groups: control group, no pneumoperitoneum; sham group, pneumoperitoneum with intra-abdominal pressure of 12 mm Hg for 60 minutes; and dexmedetomidine(More)
