Association of platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio with silent brain infarcts in patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation
Objectives: In this study, we aimed to evaluate whether the inflammation as measured by increased platelet to lymphocyte ratio (PLR) predispose to silent infarcts in patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (PAF).
Comparison of Chondrocytes Produced from Adipose Tissue-Derived Stem Cells and Cartilage Tissue
Objective: Spontaneous cartilage regeneration is poor after a cartilage defect occurs by trauma, surgical, and other reasons. Importance of producing chondrocytes from stem cells and using tissues to repair a defect is ...
Diffusion tensor imaging findings of the brainstem in subjects with tonsillar ectopia
We aimed to evaluate the differences between apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC), fractional anisotropy (FA), axial diffusivity (AD), and radial diffusivity (RD) values obtained from different cranial sites in subjects ...
Biomechanical Comparison of 2 Different Femoral Stems in the Shortening Osteotomy of the High-Riding Hip
Background: We hypothesized that a rectangular cross-sectional femoral stem may produce more initial stability of the transverse subtrochanteric femoral shortening osteotomy rather than a circular cross-sectional stem.
Microperimetric Changes After Photodynamic Therapy for Central Serous Chorioretinopathy
PURPOSE: To evaluate the effect of half-dose verteporfin photodynamic therapy (PDT) on macular function in cases of central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC).
Helicobacter Pylory infection in patients with esophageal squamous cell carcinoma
Objective:: Esophageal squamous cell carcinoma is one of the most common esophageal diseases in the developing world, but the relationship between esophageal squamous cell carcinoma and Helicobacter pylori infection remains ...
