BACKGROUND In this study, our aim is to examine the role of the neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR) in the predictions of recurrence under long-term follow-up in patients whose sinus rhythms (SRs) were restored with amiodarone in acute atrial fibrillation (AF). METHODS Retrospectively, patients with acute AF, which successfully converted to the SR with(More)
PURPOSE We aimed to investigate the effect of controlled and limited volume change by the blood donation model to the right ventricular (RV) function via different echocardiographic parameters in healthy adults. METHODS Study population was composed of 71 healthy subjects who were volunteers for blood donation and evaluated before and after 450 mL blood(More)
AIM To evaluate kyphoscoliosis patients with chronic hypercapnic respiratory failure (CHRF) using the six minute walk test (6MWT) distance (6MWD) and cardio-pulmonary function tests. METHOD This prospective cross-sectional study was carried out in a tertiary training and research hospital in Turkey. Kyphoscoliosis patients with CHRF on home mechanical(More)
OBJECTIVES Several studies have shown that psychosocial risk factors such as stress and depression make substantial contribution to the pathogenesis of coronary artery disease. This study aimed to investigate acute stress factors prior to acute myocardial infarction (AMI), and stress, depression, and anxiety levels during the subacute period in AMI patients(More)
The current study describes the fibrinolytic treatment of a patient exhibiting an acute massive pulmonary thromboembolism, who was also receiving a bevacizumab-based combination regimen for metastatic colon cancer. The administration of bevacizumab has been associated with an increased risk of venous thromboembolic events and bleeding in cancer patients.(More)
PURPOSE Mindin was associated with diabetic nephropathy, podocyte injury, colitis, allergic asthma, liver ischaemia and reperpusion injury and ischaemic brain injury. On the other hand, it was reported as a protective factor against obesity, cardiac hypertrophy, fibrosis and remodelling. Fragmented QRS complexes (fQRS) are markers of altered ventricular(More)
OBJECTIVE There is no study about hypertensive response to exercise (HRE), which is a marker of unborn hypertension (HT), and red cell distribution width (RDW) association, in diabetic normotensive patients. So, we aimed to investigate any correlation among RDW and HRE in normotensive type 2 diabetic patients. METHODS Consecutive type 2 diabetic patients(More)
AIM Diastolic dysfunction (DD) is common in hemodialysis (HD) patients. Because diabetes mellitus (DM) and hypertension (HT) are also common in this patient group, the exact reason for DD in HD patients is not clear. The present study evaluated left ventricular (LV) diastolic function in HD patients without DM and HT. METHODS Fifty patients on HD and 34(More)
