    Psychometric properties of the Turkish version of the Yale Food Addiction Scale among bariatric surgery patients
    Objective: The aim of this study was to examine validity and reliability of Turkish version of Yale Food Addiction Scale (YFAS) among Turkish bariatric surgery patients. Methods: The YFAS scale was administered to obese patients (n=171) who were seeking or underwent bariatric surgery. Construct validity of the scale was evaluated with factor analysis and reliability was evaluated with item-total score correlation and repeatability were tested by intraclass correlation (ICC) analysis between test-retest results. Results: Internal concistency was found adequate Kuder-Richardson Formula 20 coefficient (KR-20) 0.822, and Cronbach-s alpha 0.859 for the entire 25-item YFAS. As Bartlett-s Test of Sphericity was significant, the factor model developed in the present study was decided appropriate. Factor analysis extracted six factor in Turkish YFAS that explained for 67.51% of the total variance. Item total correlation coefficients of scale ranged from 0.214-0.666. Conclusion: Our findings support the use of the Turkish YFAS as a reliable measure of food addiction among bariatric surgery patients.

    (2016-01-01T00:00:00Z) BOZKURT, SÜLEYMAN; Atak, Tuba; COŞKUN, Halil; BOZKURT, SÜLEYMAN; COŞKUN, HALIL
    Pyometra is defined as pooling of purulent material in the uterine cavity. We report a perforated pyometra presented with acute abdomen who was initially diagnosed as gastrointestinal perforation. A 68 year old woman was admitted as an emergency having developed sudden lower abdominal pain. Plain abdominal X-ray revealed free air in the peritoneal cavity. At laparotomy, enlarged perforated uterus of 12x7x4 cm in size was revealed. Hysterectomy and bilateral salpingooophorectomy was performed. Postoperative period was uneventful. Patient was discharged at thirteenth day. Although rare, perforation of pyometra should be considered in the differential diagnosis in an elderly woman with an acute abdomen.

    Comparison of Results of Laparoscopic Gastric Banding and Consecutive Intragastric Balloon Application at 18 Months: A Clinical Prospective Study
    (2011-07-01T00:00:00Z) Peker, Yasin; COŞKUN, Halil; BOZKURT, SÜLEYMAN; Cin, Necat; Atak, Tuba; Genc, Hudai; COŞKUN, HALIL; BOZKURT, SÜLEYMAN
    Background: Obesity is a serious health problem that leads to serious physical and psychological problems. The methods used in treating obesity include diet and behavioral changes, pharmacotherapy, and surgery. Laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding (LAGB) and intragastric balloon (IGB) applications are two of the methods used to treat obesity. The aim of this study was to compare the effects of LAGB with those of two consecutive IGB applications in weight loss management of obese patients.
