  1. L-Carnitine Supplementation Reduces Short-Term Neutrophil-Lymphocyte Ratio in Patients Undergoing Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting.

    International surgery 100(7-8):1160 (2015) PMID 25951165

    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 ...
  2. Retrorectal Tumors in Adults: A 10-Year Retrospective Study.

    International surgery 100(7-8):1177 (2015) PMID 26595490

    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...
  3. A Prospective, Randomized Comparison of Intramuscular Phloroglucinol Versus Oral Misoprostol for Cervix Pretreatment Before Diagnostic Hysteroscopy.

    International surgery 100(7-8):1207 (2015) PMID 25956954

    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...
  4. Relationship Between the Neutrophil to Lymphocyte Ratio and Parathyroid Adenoma Size in Patients With Primary Hyperparathyroidism.

    International surgery 100(7-8):1185 (2015) PMID 26595491

    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...
  5. Courageous Dedicated Research.

    International surgery 100(7-8):1159 (2015) PMID 26595488

  6. Diagnostic and Therapeutic Challenges of Intrahepatic Biliary Cystadenoma and Cystadenocarcinoma: A Report of 10 Cases and Review of the Literature.

    International surgery 100(7-8):1212 (2015) PMID 26595495

    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...
  7. Adrenocortical Carcinoma With Renal Vein Thrombus Extended to Inferior Vena Cava: A Case Report.

    International surgery 100(7-8):1190 (2015) PMID 26595492

    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...
  8. Endoscopic Treatment of Esophago-Pleural Fistula Following Total Gastrectomy: A Case Report.

    International surgery 100(7-8):1225 (2015) PMID 26595497

    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...
  9. Giant Splenic Artery Pseudoaneurysm: A Case Report and Literature Review.

    International surgery 100(7-8):1244 (2015) PMID 26595501

    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...
  10. Noninvasive Monitoring and Evaluation of the Renal Structure and Function in a Mouse Model of Unilateral Ureteral Occlusion Using Microcomputed Tomography.

    International surgery 100(7-8):1237 (2015) PMID 26595500

    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...
