This study aims to investigate whether preoperative L-carnitine supplementation affects the neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting surgery. The neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio is an inflammatory marker that has proven usefulness for predicting ...
Due to the rarity and large diversity of the primary retrorectal tumors (RTs), the diagnoses are often difficult and they can be misdiagnosed. We present our experience in light of scarce information available on the clinical manifestations of RTs. The retrospective study included 17 patients di...
The aim of this study was to compare the effectiveness and safety of intramuscular phloroglucinol and oral misoprostol for cervix pretreatment before diagnostic hysteroscopy. Several modalities for cervical priming and pain reduction have been adopted to reduce the complications related to cervi...
The aim of our study was to evaluate the relationship between neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and adenoma size in parathyroidectomized patients who underwent a parathyroidectomy. The neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio has recently become popular as a biomarker for malignant diseases or for esti...
The objective of this study was to present our experience with intrahepatic biliary cystadenomas and cystadenocarcinomas in 10 patients surgically managed in our department. Intrahepatic biliary cystadenomas and cystadenocarcinomas are rare cystic tumors that are often misdiagnosed preoperativel...
Adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) is a rare aggressive tumor. Renal vein and inferior vena cava (IVC) thrombi have been found as uncommon presentations of ACC; however, the implementation of comprehensive therapy has remained controversial in such cases. We report a case of a 46-year-old woman with...
This paper is designed to report the endoscopic treatment for a rare esophagopleural fistula after total gastrectomy. Esophagopleural fistula is a rare complication following total gastrectomy. Nonoperative treatment using endoscopic injection of tissue glue is a less invasive and effective opti...
Splenic artery aneurysms (SAAs) are the third most frequent intra-abdominal aneurysm, following abdominal aorta and iliac artery aneurysms. SAAs are classified according to their involvement of arterial wall layers: true aneurysms involve all 3 layers (intima, media, and adventitia), and pseudoa...
Mouse unilateral ureteral occlusion (UUO) is widely used as a model of renal experimental obstructive nephropathy with interstitial fibrosis. Microcomputed tomography (micro-CT) imaging has the potential to produce quantitative images. The aim of this study was to establish standard images of mi...
