UNLABELLED Hypernatremia in the donor organ is one of the most dangerous risk factors that may cause primary graft loss after orthotopic liver transplantation (OLT). However, the viability of donor grafts from acute hypernatremic donors, which is likely to occur during resuscitation of trauma patients with hypertonic saline solution, has not been studied(More)
Partial hepatectomy is a major upper abdominal operation associated with certain stress to the patient. Successful adaptation to such stress is a prerequisite for survival. Donor hepatectomy with maximal safety is a principal concern during living donor liver transplantation. The purpose of the study was to compare the stress response by assessing cytokines(More)
Cellular schwannoma is a variant of classical schwannoma that is characterized by high cellularity. As it is accompanied by mitotic figures, it is easily mistaken for a malignant neoplasm. However, hyalinized thick-walled blood vessels, an alternating growth pattern of spindle-shaped neoplastic cells, and even Verocay bodies can be found. It is most(More)
