OBJECTIVES: Periampullary region tumors (PRTs) are the fifth highest cause of cancer-related deaths worldwide. Although recent studies have highlighted the prognostic value of the long noncoding RNA HomeoboxA transcript at the distal tip (HOTTIP) in patients with pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma, the relationship between HOTTIP and clinical outcome of all PRTs remains obscure. The aim of this study was to clarify the prognostic significance of HOTTIP in patients with all PRTs related to KRAS mutational status...

Laryngotracheoesophageal clefts (LTECs) are rare congenital defects that are often accompanied by additional anomalies. The major issues in the treatment of these patients are intraoperative exposure insufficiency, technical difficulty of the operation, and anesthesia problems originating from the respiratory tract. Problems originating from mechanical ventilation and respiratory tract, eating disorders and relapse of fistula are among the problems encountered following surgery. Most of the time, concomitant additional anomalies also worsen the clinical picture...

Alzheimer disease (AD) is the most prevalent neurodegenerative disorder in elderly people. Patients with AD appear to be particularly at risk for cognitive deterioration following anesthesia. Some in vitro studies suggest that exposure to general anesthesia (GA) promotes the AD process. On the other hand, there are no clinical studies that clearly demonstrate that GA is a cause of cognitive dysfunction in patients with probable AD. The aim of this research was to discuss the relation between postoperative cognitive dysfunction (POCD) and AD according to the literature...

Pituitary adenomas are the third most common intracranial tumors. Invasive adenomas account for only 0.1-0.2% of pituitary tumors. SPARC is a matrix glycoprotein that plays a role in progression and invasiveness of neoplasms. In this study, we examined the potential role of SPARC in invasive pituitary adenomas. Forty pituitary adenomas have been examined with histopathological and immunohistochemical techniques. The cohort has been classified into two groups as invasive (n = 25) and non-invasive (n = 15) utilizing the Hardy classification...

Central sleep apnea (CSA) results from a reduction in lack of output from the central respiratory generator in the brainstem, manifesting as apneas and hypopneas without discernible efforts. CSA can lead to hypercarbia, arrhythmias, pulmonary hypertension, and heart failure. Indeed, the patient may develop a disturbed breathing during sedation procedures. We report a patient who was diagnosed with CSA and had been on continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy for 5 years. He was referred for multiple tooth extractions under sedation owing to severe gag reflex and phobic anxiety disorder...

Wernicke's syndrome, caused by thiamine deficiency, is most commonly associated with alcoholism but can also occur in patients who are malnourished or have malabsorption of nutrients for other reasons. Since the classic triad of encephalopathy, nystagmus and ataxia occurs simultaneously in only 10-33% of cases, a high index of suspicion is needed in any patient with confusion and memory loss. In this case report, we present a 56-year-old female patient with metastatic colon cancer complicated with enterocutaneous fistula...
