AIMS The incidence of complications associated with cerebrovascular diseases in patients who receive hemodialysis for a long-term period is higher than that of other complications. It is known that mortality due to cerebral hemorrhage is two times higher compared to non-dialysis patients. Anti-coagulants used for hemodialysis are essential. Accordingly, in(More)
Gestational trophoblastic disease describes a number of gynaecological tumours that originate in the trophoblast layer, including hydatidiform mole (complete or partial), placental site trophoblastic tumour, choriocarcinoma and gestational trophoblastic neoplasia (GTN). Invasive moles are responsible for most cases of localized GTN. Two cases of GTN(More)
Arteriovenous graft for hemodialysis vascular access is a widely used technique with many advantages. However, it has crucial complications with graft thrombosis and infection. We recently experienced an unusual case of arteriovenous graft complication involving graft thrombosis related to fistula formation between the graft and the natural vein with(More)
AIMS The purpose of this study was to determine the sensitivity, specificity and predictive values of previously reported thresholds of proximal translation and sagittal rotation of cementless acetabular components used for revision total hip arthroplasty (THA) at various times during early follow-up. PATIENTS AND METHODS Migration of cementless(More)
AIMS This study aimed to determine the diagnostic performance of radiographic criteria to detect aseptic acetabular loosening after revision total hip arthroplasty (THA). Secondary aims were to determine the predictive values of different thresholds of migration and to determine the predictive values of radiolucency criteria. PATIENTS AND METHODS(More)
AIMS Urinary cystatin C has been suggested as a useful biomarker for diagnosis of acute kidney injury (AKI). Multiple myeloma is often complicated by AKI. Therefore, we investigated whether the urinary cystatin C was available for diagnosis of AKI in multiple myeloma. MATERIALS AND METHODS This study included 39 patients with monoclonal gammopathy of(More)
