BACKGROUND: More than 20 million patients worldwide undergo groin hernia repair annually. Every year more than 800,000 inguinal hernia repairs are performed in the United States alone. Since the first report by Ger et al. in 1990, laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair has gained wide acceptance due to its many advantages with more than 20% of inguinal hernias treated by this approach. The aim of our study is to estimate the number of cases needed over the course of a trainee's learning curve period to achieve stabilization of operating time and intra and post-operative complication rates when performing laparoscopic transabdominal preperitoneal hernia repair (TAPP)...

PURPOSE: To measure the projection of the most anterior line of the spinal canal on lateral radiographs of the vertebra (C3-L5) and evaluate the efficacy of the safety line (SL) in preventing intraspinal cement leakage in percutaneous kyphoplasty (PKP) and percutaneous vertebroplasty (PVP). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Fifteen adult dry-bone spine specimens were analyzed. The projection of the SL was viewed on lateral radiographs. The distance between the SL and the posterior vertebral body line (PVBL) was measured...

STUDY OBJECTIVE: We investigated the effect of bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (BMMSCs) and chicken embryo extract (CEE), alone and in combination, on tissue viability of skin flaps, and mast cells (MCs), in an experimental random skin flap (RSF) rat model. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A 30 mm × 80 mm RSF was made on the dorsum of each of the forty rats, which were then divided into four groups. One group did not receive any treatment and served as the control, the second group received BMMSCs, the third group received CEE + BMMSCs, and the fourth group received CEE...

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of our experiment was to determine whether morroniside can improve the survival of ischemic skin flaps in rats. METHODOLOGY: A total of 40 male Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly divided into two groups (control group and treatment group). Modified McFarlane flaps were performed (causally based, 9 cm × 3 cm). The percentage of survival of each flap was calculated. Flap blood flows were measured by Laser-Doppler flowmeter. Flap vasculature was assessed by angiography after Lead oxide-gelatin injection...

PURPOSE: Despite refinements in surgical techniques for liver resection, evaluation of hepatic reserve disparity remains one of the most common problems in liver surgery, especially for hepatic malignancies such as hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Portal venous pressure (PVP) is regarded one of the important factors in selecting treatment strategy, although its measurement can be invasive and complex. METHODS: To establish a formula for calculating PVP preoperatively, intraoperative directly measured PVP was used in 177 patients with preoperative factors and liver function tests such as age, sex, virus status, platelet count, prothrombin time, albumin, total bilirubin, alanine aminotransferase (ALT), Child-Pugh grade, liver damage defined by the Liver Cancer Study Group of Japan, indocyanine green retention rate at 15 min (ICG-R15), and the aspartate transaminase (AST)-platelet ratio index (APRI)...

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to assess the clinical effects of treating thoracolumbar fractures with posterior limited long-segment pedicle instrumentation (LLSPI). METHODS: A total of 58 thoracolumbar fracture patients were retrospectively analyzed, including 31 cases that were fixed by skipping the fractured vertebra with 6 screws using LLSPI and 27 cases that were fixed by skipping the fractured vertebra with 4 screws using short-segment pedicle instrumentation (SSPI)...

AIM: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of Hypericum perforatum (HP) oil on wound-healing process in rabbit palatal mucosa. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Thirty-six New Zealand albino rabbits were randomly allocated to following groups; (1) HP oil (test, n = 18) and (2) olive oil (control, n = 18). Palatinal excisional wounds were created and the oils were topically applied (0.1 ml, 30 s, twice a day). Gingival biopsies were excised, and analyzed for re-epithelialization (RE) and granulation tissue maturation (GTM) on days 3, 7, and 14 after surgery...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the expression of toll-like receptors (TLRs) in the liver of septic mouse model. MATERIALS AND METHODS: For this study seventy-two C57BL/6J mice were utilized. Sepsis was induced by cecal ligation and puncture (CLP) in the mice of the three septic (S) groups (euthanized at 24 hours, 48 hours and 72 hours). Sham (laparotomy)- operated mice constituted the control (C) groups (euthanized at 24, 48 and 72 hours). Blood samples were drawn and liver tissues were extracted and examined histologically...

BACKGROUND: Liver regeneration is a complex procedure in which insulin metabolism has been implicated. The aim of this experimental study was to evaluate the role of insulin in rat hepatic regeneration following major hepatectomy (70%), employing an isolated perfused rat liver (IPRL) model to assess the extraction of insulin from the regenerating liver. METHODS: Eighty-six male rats were randomized in 9 groups. A group of rats was studied at postoperative day (POD) 1 having a sham operation while control rats had no operation...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Invasive micropapillary carcinoma (IMPC) of the breast is a rare and aggressive variant of invasive ductal carcinoma characterized by high-grade lymphovascular invasion and high rates of nodal metastasis. The prognostic significance of the micropapillary component (MC) ratio that constitutes this aggressive variation is controversial. In this study, we aimed to investigate the effect of the MC ratio on the prognosis of these patients. METHODS: The data of 47 patients with IMPC were retrospectively reviewed...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of acellular amniotic membrane matrix patch on healing cut surface after sleeve gastrectomy in rats. METHODS: Thirty male Wistar albino rats were divided into three groups: control (n = 10), Experiment-1 (n = 10), and Experiment-2 (n = 10) groups. Control group rats underwent only sleeve gastrectomy with primary gastrorrhaphy. Experiment-1 group rats underwent sleeve gastrectomy, primary gastrorrhaphy and covered with acellular amniotic membrane matrix patch...

PURPOSE: Evaluate the efficacy of hydroxytyrosol in the local treatment of inflammatory colitis. Currently, the existing treatments for inflammatory bowel diseases does not cure the disease and it is associated with high rates of side effects and complications. Hydroxytyrosol is a phenyl-ethyl-alcohol derived from the hydrolysis of oleuropein and present in olive oil, previous studies have demonstrated the anti-inflammatory effect of dietary hydroxytyrosol supplement, with no toxicity...
