  2. Pre-measured length using landmarks on posteroanterior chest radiographs for placement of the tip of a central venous catheter in the superior vena cava.

    Journal of International Medical Research 38(1):134 (2010) PMID 20233522

    Central venous catheterization (CVC) is a common procedure but catheter misplacement is a frequent complication and can be lethal. Most CVCs are inserted at a recommended mean depth of 15 cm from the skin puncture site. Chest radiographs are used to confirm the positioning of CVCs, with the cari...

  5. Association of macrophage migration inhibitory factor gene promoter polymorphisms with multiple sclerosis in Turkish patients.

    Journal of International Medical Research 38(1):69 (2010) PMID 20233515

    Elevated levels of macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF) have been observed in the cerebrospinal fluid of patients with multiple sclerosis. This study was designed to determine if MIF gene polymorphisms are associated with multiple sclerosis and disease severity. In total, 120 relapsing-r...

  9. Ferrous chelator 2,2'-dipyridyl attenuates cerebral vasospasm after experimental subarachnoid haemorrhage in rabbits.

    Journal of International Medical Research 38(2):583 (2010) PMID 20515571

    The effect of 2,2'-dipyridyl (DP) on cerebral vasospasm was investigated in a double-injection rabbit model of subarachnoid haemorrhage (SAH). Thirty-six animals were divided between four groups: control (sham-operated), SAH (model alone), SAH + DP (the SAH model in which DP dissolved in dimethy...

  10. Effect of sperminated pullulans on drug permeation through isolated rabbit cornea and determination of ocular irritation.

    Journal of International Medical Research 38(2):526 (2010) PMID 20515566

    The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of two sperminated pullulans (SP) with a different number of amino groups (SP-L, amino group content 0.124 mmol/g polymer; and SP-H, amino group content 0.578 mmol/g polymer) on the permeation of drugs through isolated rabbit corneas. Determina...
