Damage which occurs following spinal traumas is often irreversible. During recent years free oxygen radicals formed due to the pathological changes following neural tissue ischemia have been identified as being responsible for the ethio-pathogenesis of such damage. In our experimental study, model lesions are formed in spinal cords of rats by standard… (More)
A series of 30 documented cases of intracranial hydatid cyst out of 33 pediatric and 45 total patients admitted to the Department of Neurosurgery of the School of Medicine at Istanbul University within the years 1952-1996 is presented. The pediatric population consisted of 73% of the series. Twenty patients (66%) are alive and well after a follow-up period… (More)
Intracranial extradural hydatid cysts are a rare occurrence with unclear pathogenesis. Three different cases are reported and the postoperative courses are discussed. Of the 11 cases found in the literature, all eight cases whose sex and age were reported are men, and seven of the eight are clustered in between the second and fourth decades.
Stroke occurs due to the interruption of blood flow to the brain and it is divided into ischemic and hemorrhagic. In the ischemic strokes, while the most commonly affected vessel is median cerebral artery (MCA), it is particularly affected bilateral posterior cerebral artery (PCA) is very rare condition. In this study, a case of sudden loss of vision and… (More)
The authors report 17 cases of intracranial hydatid cyst out of 500 brain tumors seen in 20 years, and analyze clinical, investigative, diagnostic, and operative findings.
OBJECTIVE In the first assessment of trauma patients with major vascular injuries, we need effective and rapid-acting homeostatic materials. In this study we compare the efficiencies of Ankaferd Blood Stopper® and a chitosan linear polymer (Celox®) in an experimental rat model with femoral artery bleeding. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty male Wistar albino… (More)
