Giant uterine leiomyomas are extremely rare neoplasms and are challenging both diagnostically and therapeutically. A 49-year-old premenopausal female presented at our Department complaining of abdominal pain and distention for several years. Ultrasound (US), color Doppler US, abdominal computed tomography imaging after administration of contrast material,(More)
A new and portable electronic device called the "Digital Phagometer" is described for the time based counting of spontaneous swallowing. This device is composed of a piezoelectric sensor and a digital event counter/ recorder which can be downloaded to any IBM-compatible PC. The sensor of Digital Phagometer is placed and fixed on the coniotomy region between(More)
In the past 15 yrs, a number of investigators have applied spectral analysis to respiratory sounds recorded from the chest wall or the trachea in order to objectively characterize them and to relate them with different pulmonary diseases. In the present study, we have applied multivariate linear discriminant analysis to the spectral features of respiratory(More)
BACKGROUND Cytomegalovirus (CMV) infections are the leading cause of infectious hearing loss and central nervous system disease among children worldwide. In this study, we aimed to determine the birth prevalence of congenital CMV infection in live-born infants in Turkey. METHODS In total, 944 consecutive live-born infants born from 926 pregnant women were(More)
BACKGROUND Neonatal sepsis is an important cause of neonatal morbidity and mortality in the neonatal intensive care unit. Soluble triggering receptor expressed on myeloid cells-1 (sTREM-1) has been evaluated in sepsis and septic shock, and it was found to be valuable in distinguishing septic cases from nonseptic cases. Endocan is constitutively expressed by(More)
We aimed to investigate the extent to which measurements of flow volume (FV) with colour flow duplex ultrasonography (CDU) could predict tissue perfusion. A 68 year-old male patient was admitted to our clinic complaining of intermittent claudication in the right leg. Digital subtraction angiography showed total occlusion of the right femoral artery. The(More)
AIM In this study, we aimed to investigate the arterial and venous flow volume rate (FV) in order to determine the tissue perfusion using duplex ultrasonography (DU). We hypothesized that FV provides reliable information regarding tissue perfusion in patients with peripheral arterial disease (PAD). MATERIAL AND METHODS The study comprised 38 patients (72(More)
We report on the conventional and diffusion-weighted (DWI) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings of a partially thrombosed torcular Herophili dural sinus malformation. DWI confirmed the intralesional partial thrombosis/blood clot characterized by restricted diffusion. In addition, focal or global intracerebral complications were excluded by fetal DWI.(More)
BACKGROUND Renal cell carcinoma is an interesting tumor due to its unpredictable behavior. Common metastatic sites of renal cell carcinoma are the lungs, lymph nodes, bones and liver. Concurrent thyroid metastasis of clear cell carcinoma is uncommon but it can appear as a rapidly growing cervical, painless nodular mass. CASE REPORT We report a case of a(More)
