Quantative computerized tomography assessment of lung density as a predictor of postoperative pulmonary morbidity in patients with lung cancer
Background: The aim of this study was to evaluate the pulmonary reserve of the patients via preoperativequantitative computerized tomography (CT) and to determine if these preoperative quantitativemeasurements could predict ...
Effectiveness of the biophysical barriers on the peridural fibrosis of a postlaminectomy rat model: An experimental research
Purpose: Long term results after surgical treatment of disc herniation have shown that epidural and/or peridural fibrosis formed during the healing process after surgical intervention. We conducted this experimental study ...
A novel structural risk index for primary spontaneous pneumothorax: Ankara Numune Risk Index
Summary Background: In this study, we aimed to reveal a novel risk index as a structural risk marker for primary spontanoeus pneumothorax using body mass index and chest height, structural risk factors for pneumothorax ...
Epicardial adipose tissue thickness is associated with myocardial infarction and impaired coronary perfusion
Objective: Epicardial adipose tissue (EAT) is associated with the presence, severity and extent of atherosclerotic coronary artery disease (CAD) in addition to subclinical atherosclerosis. We investigated if EAT thickness ...

Evaluation of the neurotoxicity of dmso infused into the carotid artery of rat
Introduction: Despite the explanations put forth in many studies regarding histopathological evidence of the inflammatory stage related with the infusion of dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) in the vessel wall and its lumen, ...
Do C-reactive protein level, white blood cell count, and pain location guide the selection of patients for computed tomography imaging in non-traumatic acute abdomen?
The value of abdominal computed tomography in non-traumatic abdominal pain has been well established. On the other hand, to manage computed tomography, appropriateness has become more of an issue as a result of the ...
Arterial stiffness and central arterial wave reflection are associated with serum uric acid, total bilirubin, and neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio in patients with coronary artery disease
Objective: Total bilirubin (TB) was recently recognized as an endogenous anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant molecule. Uric acid (UA) takes part in cardiovascular diseases by inducing oxidative stress, inflammation, and ...
