Analgesic techniques after c-section must be effective producing early mobilisation to enable mothers to care effort their babies. In this study, the comparison of ropivacaine 0.2% alone, with ropivacaine 0.2%+sufentanil 0.75 microg mL-1 for patient controlled epidural analgesia (PCEA) was aimed. Fifty women (ASA-I) were enrolled in the study. All patients(More)
BACKGROUND We aimed to investigate the impact of C-reactive protein (CRP), interleukin (IL)-6, leptin, cortisol, and caspase-3 on the decision of terminating planned abdominal repair in secondary peritonitis. METHODS Fifteen patients with peritonitis were enrolled into the study. Serum CRP, IL-6, leptin, cortisol, and peritoneal caspase-3 activities were(More)
BACKGROUND This study aimed to evaluate the role of alfa-2 agonist infusion, with dexmedetomidine or midazolam, on hemodynamic and respiratory parameters while titrating the sedation level with the bispectral index (BIS) during cataract surgery. METHODS Ninety consenting ASA class I-III patients who were electively undergoing cataract surgery were(More)
Antley-Bixler syndrome is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by multiple bone and cartilaginous abnormalities.

BACKGROUND Postoperative pain relief after major surgery cannot be achieved with opioids alone in all patients without respiratory depression or other significant drawbacks. Modern medical practice, therefore, dictates the use of alternative analgesic agents as an adjunct or substitute to minimize the deleterious effects and to facilitate an earlier return(More)
OBJECTIVES This study was undertaken to evaluate whether the surgeons' oxygen saturation of hemoglobin was affected by the surgical mask or not during major operations. METHODS Repeated measures, longitudinal and prospective observational study was performed on 53 surgeons using a pulse oximeter pre and postoperatively. RESULTS Our study revealed a(More)
In the present study, it is aimed to investigate oxidant/antioxidant status of plasma and erythrocytes from atherosclerotic patients and to establish the possible role of oxidant stress in the formation and progression of atherosclerosis. Antioxidant potential (AOP) values and malondialdehyde (MDA) levels were studied in erythrocyte and plasma samples from(More)
