Acute ghrelin administration reduces insulin secretion, whereas insulin infusion has been shown to decrease ghrelin levels. Whether ghrelin has any effect on glucose utilization in humans is unknown. OBJECTIVE Our objective was to reveal the effect of ghrelin on(More)

The authors have analyzed a group of 90 patients (105 operations) that have underwent stapes surgery over three years period. First group of 40 patients (45 operations) have been operated on by a classic stapedotomy from 2006 to 2007 and the second group of 50 patients (60 operations) by inverse stapedotomy in 2007. Manual perforator has been used in all of(More)
Congenital pseudoarthrosis (CPT) of the lower leg is still a considerable therapeutic problem. There are many surgical and other procedures to manage pseudoarthrosis, but the results are not always satisfactory, unfortunately, and are accompanied by a big number of complications, even limb amputation in some cases. The most complicated surgical procedure is(More)
Scintiscanning and laboratory and clinical examinations in most cases lead to accurate preoperative hydatid cyst diagnosis and reveal the localization of the cyst in the liver. Selecting the adequate operative procedure and taking all precautions to prevent contamination during surgery, ensure good results and minimize the incidence of postoperative(More)
In the period between 1 January 1978 and 1 January 2004, 85 patients with hypopharyngeal squamocellular carcinoma were admitted at the Department of Esophagogastric Surgery in Belgrade. Among them, only 46 patients (54.1%) had radical surgical en-block resection and functional neck dissection, and they were included into an historical cohort study. In 40(More)
OBJECTIVE There have been rare conflicting results reported concerning possible higher frequency of hearing loss in acromegalic patients. Our goal was to determine whether there is higher frequency of conductive hearing loss in acromegalics and what may cause it if there is any. STUDY DESIGN Prospective study. SETTING Tertiary referral center. (More)
