Effects of Low-Dose Radiation on the Survival of Lung Cancer Patients
Objective: Some previous studies have shown that low-dose radiotherapy (RT) can increase tumor invasion and metastasis. Multiple RT fields are usually used to prevent the damage to the organs at risk. We performed a clinical ...
Relationships Among Markers of Inflammation, Neutrophil-to-Lymphocyte Ratio, and Syntax Severity Score in the Early Phase of Acute Coronary Syndrome
Objective: The aim of the present study was to examine a possible association between inflammation, as indicated by High-sensitivity C-reactive protein (HsCRP) and neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio (NLR), and the complexity and ...
Association between etiology and lesion site in ischemic brainstem infarcts: a retrospective observational study.
Background and purpose: To assess the anatomical distribution of the ischemic strokes of the brainstem, the effect of anatomical distribution on clinical features and prognosis, and the association between etiology and ...
Comparison of Weight Loss, Ghrelin, and Leptin Hormones After Ligation of Left Gastric Artery and Sleeve Gastrectomy in a Rat Model.
BACKGROUND Ligation of the left gastric artery (LLGA), which supplies the fundus of the stomach, may reduce the appetite hormone ghrelin, resulting in weight control. The aim of this study was to compare LLGA and sleeve ...
Safe thyroidectomy with intraoperative methylene blue spraying.
Background: We aimed to minimalize operative complications by spraying of methylene blue stain on thyroid glands and the perithyroidal area. Material and methods: The intra-operative methylene blue spraying technique was ...
Corneal sensitivity and subjective complaints of ocular pain in patients with fibromyalgia
Purpose Fibromyalgia (FM) is a chronic pain disorder associated with pain and hypersensitivity in various parts of the body. The aim of this study was to understand whether changes in corneal sensitivity were associated ...

Embedding Exposed Subcutaneous Venous Ports in the Pectoral Muscle: A Practical and Stable Technique for Coverage
Objective: The aim of this study was to present our experience in embedding exposed subcutaneous venous ports in the pectoral muscle.
Protective effect of ischemic preconditioning on myocardium against remote tissue injury following transient focal cerebral ischemia in diabetic rats Efeito protetor do pré-condicionamento isquêmico no Miocárdio contra lesão remota de tecidos após isquemia cerebral focal transitória em ratos diabéticos
Background: Remote ischemic preconditioning (IPreC) could provide tissue-protective effect at a remote site by anti-inflammatory, neuronal, and humoral signaling pathways. Objectives: The aim of the study was to investigate ...
