BACKGROUND: Laparoscopic partial nephrectomy, minimizing renal function loss due to its nephron sparing nature, has become a standard technique among many experienced centers worldwide in the surgical treatment of localized kidney tumors. Although partial nephrectomy will remain the gold standard, we need to improve perioperative management and surgical method to prevent postoperative acute kidney injury. AIMS: We aimed to demonstrate the frequency of the development of postoperative acute kidney injury following laparoscopic partial nephrectomy in patients with healthy contralateral kidney and the early predictive effects of serum neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin in ischemia reperfusion injury and its association with the warm ischemia time...

BACKGROUND: Although water pipe smoking is a great public health problem, data regarding the acute and chronic effects and the degree of toxin exposure are limited. While water pipe-related malignancy, pulmonary, infectious, cardiac effects, infertility and biological effects have been described in a meta-analysis, there are no studies in the literature about its neurologic effects. AIMS: The aim was to evaluate water pipe-related acute neurological effects and cerebral blood flow through transcranial doppler ultrasonography and serum s100b protein level measurements...

BACKGROUND: Although postoperative complications occurs after periodontal plastic surgeries, an ideal treatment has not been found to overcome. AIMS: The aim of this study was evaluated the effects of topically applied Oral-norm gel on the healing of excisional wounds. STUDY DESIGN: Animal experimentation.

AIMS: Although there have been many studies about lomber and cervical ablation procedures, very few studies have been performed on the thoracic region. This is a study to evaluate the clinical results of percutaneous disc decompression device in patients with radicular symptoms and/or dorsal pain due to thoracic disc herniation. METHODS: Eleven patients with thoracic disc herniation and/or degenerative discs (all in T10-T11, or T11-T12 levels) who did not respond to conservative treatments were undergo ablation and compression procedure...

This report produces a bibliographic study of psychophysical tests proposed clinical assessments of retronasal olfaction. We review how these tests can be utilized and discuss their methodological properties. We undertook a systematic literature review investigating the retronasal olfaction test methods. PubMed, the free online MEDLINE database on biomedical sciences, was searched for the period from 1984 to 2015 using the following relevant key phrases: "retronasal olfaction", "orthonasal olfaction", "olfaction disorders", and "olfaction test"...

With increasing characterization of disease associated molecular markers, it is becoming challenging to perform multiple single-gene molecular assays. Specific molecular markers are helpful for diagnostic, prognostic evaluation and management of hematologic malignancies. Introduction and rapid progress on next generation sequencing has led to extensive modifications and offers a novel way to integrate concurrent assessment of multiple target genes in routine laboratory analysis especially in view of increasing clinical demands for testing of multiple genetic aberrations...

BACKGROUND: Lynch syndrome (LS), which is an inherited cancer disorder, has an increased lifetime risk for various cancers. Endometrial cancer (EC) is the most common extra-colonic cancer in LS. Guidelines recommend that patients with EC diagnosed under 50 years of age should be evaluated for LS. Molecular analysis of mismatch repair (MMR) genes and EPCAM gene is required for a definitive diagnosis of LS. AIMS: The purpose of this study was to report the mutation analysis of MMR genes using targeted next generation sequencing (NGS) in patients having EC diagnosed <50 years of age as the first study from Turkey, to our knowledge...

BACKGROUND: Scoring systems (SS) are useful to inform the patients about the success and complication rates of the operation prior the surgery. AIMS: We aimed to determine the applicability of the popular SS (Guy's, S.T.O.N.E and CROES) by means of examining preoperative data of patients treated with percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PNL). STUDY DESIGN: Cross sectional. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed files of the patients who had undergone PNL in our center between 2011 and 2015...
