Triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) is an aggressive type of breast cancer characterized by the absence of defined molecular targets, including estrogen receptor (ER), progesterone receptor (PR), human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) and is associated with high rates of relapse and distant metastasis despite surgery and adjuvant chemotherapy. The lack of effective targeted therapies for TNBC represents an unmet therapeutic challenge. Eukaryotic elongation factor 2 kinase (eEF2K) is an atypical calcium/calmodulin-dependent serine/threonine kinase that promotes TNBC tumorigenesis, progression, and drug resistance, representing a potential novel molecular target...

Therapeutic access to the biliary system is generally limited to endoscopic or percutaneous approaches. A variety of percutaneous transhepatic biliary interventions are applicable for the diagnosis and treatment of biliary system pathologies, the majority of which may be performed in conjunction with one another. The backbone of nearly all of these interventions is percutaneous transhepatic cholangiography for opacification of the biliary tree, after which any number of therapeutic or diagnostic modalities may be pursued...

BACKGROUND: Based on the angiogenetic and stimulating effects of bone healing and formation of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), the present study was designed to assess the efficacy of VEGF gene application in the management of experimentally induced osteomyelitis. METHODS: Thirty-two male Sprague Dawley rats were divided into 4 groups, and osteomyelitis was induced in the left tibial bones. Group 1 (n=8) was designated as a control group, and, after the induction of osteomyelitis, no treatment was applied for a period of 4 weeks...

The aim of this study was to evaluate N-terminal pro brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) concentrations and PAP values in children with allergic rhinitis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Sixty-six patients with allergic rhinitis and 22 healthy children were prospectively enrolled in this study. Plasma NT-proBNP levels were measured at first admission and after treatment...

BACKGROUND/AIM: Although common bile duct stones are generally treated endoscopically, surgery is required if endoscopic removal is impossible. The aim of this study was to compare the surgical options in such patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 282 patients with common bile duct stones underwent open choledochotomy; primary closure was applied in 48 (17.0%), primary closure with T-tube drainage in 81 (28.7%), and choledochoduodenostomy in 153 (54.3%) patients...

AIM: The objective of our study was to investigate nerve conduction in normoglycemic obese children. METHODS: A total of 60 children with obesity (30 female and 30 male) and 30 healthy children (15 female and 15 male) were enrolled in the study. Insulin resistance (IR) and other metabolic disturbances were investigated and nerve conduction was measured in all participants. Obese children were divided into groups according to the presence of IR. All results were compared between these subgroups...

Peripheral vascular disease (PVD) is a devastating medical problem that may lead to significant life alterations for patients, from simply limiting their daily activities to potential loss of limbs and eventual demise. Superficial femoral and popliteal arteries are significantly common locations for PVD sequelae to present itself, and owing to their length and mobile nature, treatment of these segments are quite challenging. Indications for PVD treatment include lifestyle-limiting claudication that is not responding to medical management, ischemic rest pain, nonhealing ulcers, and lower extremity gangrene...

Nicolau syndrome (NS) is a dermatological adverse reaction of intramuscular injections and is caused by several mechanisms. The etiopathogenesis remains unclear, and several hypotheses have suggested a vascular origin. Rhabdomyolysis (RM) is the destruction of striated muscle, with the subsequent release of muscle cell contents into circulation. NS and RM diagnoses may overlap. Herein, we present the autopsy findings of a 40-year-old female with NS complicated with RM. On clinical follow-up, creatine kinase (CK) was 7146 IU/L, and urea and creatinine levels were elevated on the third day after intramuscular diclofenac injection...

PURPOSE: The SCN1A gene is one of the most commonly mutated human epilepsy genes associated with a spectrum of phenotypes with variable degrees of severity. Despite over 1200 distinct mutations reported, it is still hard to draw clear genotype-phenotype relationships, since genetic and environmental modifiers contribute to the development of a particular disease caused by an SCN1A mutation. We aimed to initiate mutational screening of the SCN1A gene in Turkey and advance further our understanding of the relationship between the SCN1A sequence alterations and disease phenotypes such as GEFS+, DS and related epileptic encephalopathies...

We report the case of a 34-year-old woman who developed delayed retrograde ascending aortic dissection after previous endovascular repair of her descending thoracic aorta. Preoperative computed tomography imaging specifically highlights the interaction of endograft springs with the dissection flap and surrounding aortic tissues. Intraoperative findings are presented for comparison and further discussion.

BACKGROUND: The use of power morcellation (PM) in abdominal and pelvic surgery has been discouraged and even banned in some institutions because of the risk of spreading malignant cells, although some authorities maintain that PM can be an appropriate tool for selected patients deemed to be at low risk of malignancy. CASE: A 42-year-old woman developed parasitic myomas and an adenomyoma obstructing the right ureter after laparoscopic excision of multiple myomas and deep infiltrating endometriosis using PM...

BACKGROUND: Intravenous lipid emulsion eliminates the toxicity-related symptoms of several drugs. We hypothesized that intravenous lipid emulsion prolongs the survival time in digoxin-intoxicated rats. METHODS: Electrocardiograms of 14 anesthesized Wistar rats were monitored. All of the rats received digoxin infusion at a rate of 12 mL/h (0.25 mg/mL). Five minutes after the start of digoxin infusion, animals were treated either with 12.4 mL/kg intravenous lipid emulsion (group L) or saline (group C)...
