OBJECTIVE We wanted to compare the efficacies of 95% ethanol and 20% hypertonic saline (HS) sclerotherapies that were performed in a single session under CT guidance for the management of simple renal cysts. MATERIALS AND METHODS A prospective series of 74 consecutive patients (average age: 57.6 +/- 8.1 years) with simple renal cysts were enrolled in this(More)
Introduction Vaccine manufacturers evaluate the efficiency of their vaccine according to the method which is defined in the European Pharmacopoeia. Regarding foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) vaccine there are some difficulties to find animals for potency tests in the countries like Turkey where FMD is endemic and vaccine campaigns are carried out. In addition,(More)
Hypermethylated genomic DNA is a common feature in tumoral tissues, although the prevalence of this modification remains poorly understood. We aimed to determine the frequency of five tumor suppressor (TS) genes in prostate cancer and the correlation between promoter hypermethylation of these genes and low and high grade of prostate carcinomas. A total of(More)
BACKGROUND Dexmedetomidine, because it has both sedative and analgesic properties, may be suitable for conscious sedation during painful procedures. Extracorporeal shockwave lithotripsy (ESWL) is a minimal to mildly painful procedure that requires conscious sedation. We thus evaluated the utility of dexmedetomidine compared with propofol during an ESWL(More)
Prostate cancer is a common malignancy that develops by structural mutation(s) and/or other genetic alterations in specific genes.The G to T transversions in codon 12 and C to T transitions in codon 13 of KRAS proto-oncogene are predominant point mutations that occur in about 20% of different cancers in human. In the current study it was aimed to(More)
In this experimental study, our aim was to determine whether angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibition and angiotensin II type 1 (AT1) receptor blockade affect the apoptotic changes in contralateral testis following unilateral testicular torsion (UTT). Study groups consisted of 30 adult male Wistar rats. The rats were randomly separated into five(More)
A 13-y-old male patient presented with acute urinary retention and bilateral lumbar pain. The routine laboratory tests were normal. Casoni's skin test and indirect haemagglutination assay (1/160) were positive. Evidence of hydatid disease was found during surgery. Histopathological examination confirmed hydatid disease in the surgical specimens.
OBJECTIVE To assess the effect of antimuscarinic treatment with tolterodine combined with behavioural modification as a first-line treatment, before invasive investigation, in children with non-neurogenic voiding dysfunction but no obvious anatomical or neurogenic cause. PATIENTS AND METHODS The study comprised 44 children presenting with voiding(More)
BACKGROUND Percutaneous nephrostomy (PCN) has been established as an effective technique for urinary decompression or diversion. This procedure may be performed with the guidance of fluoroscopy, ultrasonography, a combination of fluoroscopy and ultrasonography, computed tomography (CT), or magnetic resonance imaging. PURPOSE To retrospectively review(More)
OBJECTIVES To clarify the pharmacological effects of adrenomedullin, a potent vasodilator and hypotensive peptide isolated from human phaeochromocytoma cells, on corpus cavernosal smooth muscle in vitro, as the intracavernosal injection of adrenomedullin induces penile erection in the anaesthetized cat. MATERIALS AND METHODS The effects of adrenomedullin(More)
