    Using pentraxin-3 for diagnosing acute appendicitis and predicting perforation: A prospective comparative methodological study.
    (2020-01-01T00:00:00Z) Gul, VO; Destek, SABAHATTİN; DESTEK, SABAHATTİN
    BACKGROUND: In this study, we aimed to investigate the diagnostic performance of pentraxin-3 for acute appendicitis, and the predictive performance for perforation in patients with acute appendicitis, compared with white blood cell count, high-sensitivity C-reactive protein and interleukin-6 (IL-6). METHODS: This study was a prospective methodological study, in which we studied the accuracies of the serum levels of pentraxin-3, white blood cell count, interleukin-6 and high-sensitivity C-reactive protein in estimating acute appendicitis, and in estimating perforation in patients with acute appendicitis. We designed the control group with the patients diagnosed inguinal hernia and admitted for elective surgery. Receiver operating characteristics analysis was used to compare the diagnostic accuracies and predictive performances. RESULTS: Receiver operating characteristics analysis revealed that the Pentraxin-3 level >3.67 ng/mL showed the sensitivity of 95.5% and specificity of 100.0% for diagnosing acute appendicitis, with an area under the curve of 0.993 (95% CI 0.967–1.000). Also, the Pentraxin-3 level >9.56 ng/mL showed the sensitivity of 92.9%, and the specificity of 87.1% for the prediction of the perforation, with an area under the curve of 0.820 (95% CI 0.736–0.886). CONCLUSION: The diagnostic performance of Pentraxin-3 for acute appendicitis and the predictive performance for perforation were higher than white blood cell count, high-sensitivity C-reactive protein and interleukin-6.

    Hereditary Thrombophilia Risk Factors In Patients With Venous Thromboembolism
    (2020-01-01T00:00:00Z) Destek, Sabahattin; Gül, Vahit Onur; DESTEK, SABAHATTİN
    Venous thromboembolic disease (VTD) is a serious cause of mortality and morbidity with an incidence of 0.1% per year. The etiology of VTD is multifactorial and associated with acquired and hereditary conditions. The aim of our study was to investigate the presence of rare genetic mutations in VTD patients and to evaluate their distribution according to thrombosis sites.The study group consisted of 107 patients who underwent genetic testing for thrombophilia due to VTD between 2015 and 2017. Patients with VTD who underwent thrombophilic genetic examination by polymerase chain reaction method were included in the study. Antithrombin III, protein C and protein S deficiency patients diagnosed with biochemical tests were excluded from the study. The demographic characteristics and clinical results of the patients were obtained from the hospital archive. The control group consisted of 112 healthy individuals randomly selected from the community. The patient group and the control group were compared.The mean age of the patients was 39.6 years. The female/male ratio was 1.7. Advanced age and female gender were statistically significantly more frequent in the patient group (In both, p=0.0001). Factor V G1691A and B-Fibrinogen-455 genetic defects were statistically significantly higher in the patient group (Respectively; p=0.008, p=0.049). The most frequent (54.2%) PAI-4G&5G heterozygous gene defect was found in the patients. Deep venous thrombosis was detected in 54.2%, intraabdominal VTD in 4.7%, pulmonary embolism in 27.1%, and cerebral venous thrombosis in 30.8% of the VTD patients.Thrombophilic genetic mutations are not uncommon in patients with VTD. Thrombophilic genetic mutations in VTD etiology and in selected patients should be investigated. In patients without known thrombophilia mutations, rare thrombophilic mutations should be examined.

    Clinical and Pathological Evaluation of Benign Skin Lesions
    (2019-12-01T00:00:00Z) Destek, Sabahattin; Gül, Vahit Onur; DESTEK, SABAHATTİN
    Skin lesions are commonly benign in nature. The present study aims to evaluate the prevalence and clinicopathological characteristics of a large series of benign skin lesions (BSLs) excised in our clinic. Patients with skin lesions who underwent total excisional biopsy at the general surgery clinic between 2012 and 2016 were reviewed. A total of 551 patients with BSLs were included in the study. Of these, 43.7% were females and 56.7% were males. The age range was between 2 and 98 years with a mean of 39.7 years. The most commonly occurring group of BSLs was of the appendageal tumors (33.3%), and this finding was statistically significant. The most common keratinocytic BSL (13.6%) was verruca vulgaris. In the present study, various types of BSLs and their occurrences were evaluated. Benign skin tumors can turn into malignant types. A biopsy should be performed to establish the exact diagnosis. We performed an excisional biopsy to confirm the diagnosis.

    Brunner-s Gland Hyperplasias and Hamartomas in Association with Helicobacter pylori
    (2019-01-01T00:00:00Z) DESTEK, SABAHATTİN; Gul, Vahit Onur; DESTEK, SABAHATTİN
    Background. The proliferative lesions of the Brunner-s glands (BGs) are hyperplasia and hamartomas, and they are usually asymptomatic and very rarely diagnosed. The aetiology of these lesions is not yet clear. The aim of this study is to evaluate the clinical presentations of patients with BG hyperplasia and hamartomas and to assess the pathological features of these lesions in association with Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori). Methods. Our retrospective study included patients who underwent upper gastrointestinal system endoscopy between 2010 and 2015. The hospital records of 18 patients diagnosed with hyperplasia or hamartoma of BG were reviewed for the clinical and pathological findings. Data from patients with BG lesion were compared with 37 patients who had nonspecific duodenitis as the control group. Results. Female/male ratio in our study sample was 1/1. The age range was between 16 and 85 years with a mean age of 48.61. BG hyperplasia and hamartomas were found in 72.22 and 27.78% of the patients, respectively. The rate of H. pylori in gastric mucosa was 43.2% in the control group and 66.7% in the BG lesion group. In the BG lesion group, the rate of H. pylori was higher. H. pylori was identified in 60% of BG hamartomas and in 69.2% of hyperplastic BGs. Conclusion. Our study demonstrated that H. pylori may play an important role in the development of BG hyperplasia and hamartomas in association with chronic gastritis and duodenitis. This is probably due to chronic irritation.

    S100A4 May Be a Good Prognostic Marker and a Therapeutic Target for Colon Cancer
    (2018-01-01T00:00:00Z) DESTEK, SABAHATTİN; Gul, Vahit Onur; DESTEK, SABAHATTİN
    Background. Globally, the colorectal cancers rank the third in terms of cancer incidence and rank the fourth in cancer-associated deaths. S100A4, an important member of the S100 protein family, serves to promote tumor progression and metastasis. By conducting this study, we aim to examine the role of S100A4 in the prognosis of colon cancer and to demonstrate its prognostic significance. Methods. Tissue samples of colon cancer from 148 patients who underwent colon resection due to colon cancer were analyzed by immunohistochemical staining to determine the protein expression levels of S100A4. The protein expression levels of S100A4 in tumor tissue werematched with the clinicopathologic factors including patient survival. Results. Cytoplasmic expression of S100A4 protein was demonstrated in the tumor tissue of 132 patients (89.2%) out of a total of 148 study patients. Statistically, the expression levels of the cytoplasmic S100A4 protein correlated significantly with the TNM stages and patient survival. The distribution of the S100A4 protein staining in the tumor tissue was associated with the age groups, tumor localization, TNMstaging, and patient survival with statistical significance. The levels of S100A4 protein expressionwere found to be an independent prognostic factor for TNM staging and poor survival. Conclusion. Expression of the S100A4 protein in colon cancers may be an indicator of tumor progression and lymph node metastasis and may be useful for predicting the overall survival of the patients with colon cancer. In patients with colon cancer, it may be used as an indicator of poor prognosis.

    Analysis of Appendiceal Neoplasms on 3544 Appendectomy Specimens for Acute Appendicitis: Retrospective Cohort Study of a Single Institution
    (2018-06-27) Destek, Sebahattin; Bektasoglu, HÜSEYİN KAZIM; Unver, NURCAN; Aydogan, CEYHUN; Timocin, GİZEM; KUNDUZ, ENVER; BEKTAŞOĞLU, HÜSEYİN KAZIM; ÜNVER, NURCAN; AYDOĞAN, CEYHUN; TİMOÇİN, GİZEM; DESTEK, SABAHATTİN
    BACKGROUND Appendiceal neoplasms are rare and generally determined in appendectomy specimens for acute appendicitis. Depending on a tumor's histopathology and size, appendectomy or right hemicolectomy are the surgical treatment options. Adenocarcinomas, mucinous neoplasms, goblet cell carcinoids and neuroendocrine tumors are the types of the primary appendiceal neoplasm histopathology. In this study, we aimed to determine the incidence of appendiceal neoplasms in an acute appendicitis cohort. Also, histopathological distributions, demographic data, preoperative radiological diagnosis, and intraoperative findings were revealed for analysis, retrospectively. MATERIAL AND METHODS Between October 2011 and September 2017, 3554 appendectomies were performed for acute appendicitis in Bezmialem University Hospital, Istanbul Turkey. The medical records of these consecutive 3554 patients were evaluated retrospectively. After the histopathological analysis of the appendectomy specimens, a total of 28 patients were detected as having appendiceal neoplasm including appendiceal adenocarcinoma, low grade mucinous neoplasia, and appendiceal neuroendocrine tumors. RESULTS Appendiceal neoplasms were determined in 28 out of 3554 acute appendicitis patients with an incidence of 0.78%. According to the histopathological types, 3 of the cases (10.7%) were appendiceal adenocarcinoma, 8 of the cases (28.5%) were low grade mucinous neoplasia, and 17 of the cases (60.8%) were neuroendocrine tumors. The overall incidence of the appendiceal neuroendocrine tumors was 0.48%. CONCLUSIONS The information obtained from our study suggests that pathological examination of the specimen may not be necessary if there is no doubt according to preoperative radiological diagnosis and/or intraoperative findings of the surgeon.
