Epiploic appendagitis, caused by inflammation of small adipose tissue on the colon wall, is a rare cause of acute abdominal pain in the pediatric population. It is nearly impossible to establish a specific diagnosis merely on the basis of clinical findings; thus, radiological evaluation is always necessary. In this report, we present the cases of three children with abdominal pain who were diagnosed with epiploic appendagitis. All cases were successfully treated with conservative management.

Objective: One of the methods that can be used to prevent ischaemia reperfusion (IR) injury is ischaemic preconditioning. The aim of this study was to evaluate and compare the effects of remote and direct ischaemic preconditioning (RIPC and DIPC) histopathologically in the rat renal IR injury model. Methods: After obtaining an approval from the Dokuz Eylul University School of Medicine Ethics Committee, 28 Wistar Albino male rats were divided into four groups. In Group I (Sham, n=7), laparotomy and left renal pedicle dissection were performed, but nothing else was done. In Group II (IR, n=7), after 45 minutes of left renal pedicle o . . .cclusion, reperfusion lasting 4 hours was performed. In Group III (DIPC+IR, n=7), after four cycles of ischaemic preconditioning applied to the left kidney, renal IR was performed. In Group IV (RIPC+IR, n=7), after three cycles of ischaemic preconditioning applied to the left hind leg, renal IR was performed. All rats were sacrificed, and the left kidney was processed for conventional histopathology. Results: The histopathological injury score of the kidney was significantly lower in the sham group compared with the other groups ( Daha fazlası Daha az

The Effects of Lidocaine with Epinephrine on Bupivacaine-Induced Cardiotoxicity

Gonca, Ersoz | Catli, Duygu


Objective: Bupivacaine, a local anaesthetic substance, is used as a regional-anaesthesia agent. Lidocaine, a sodium channel blocker, is used in combination with epinephrine for regional anaesthesia. We aimed to evaluate the effects of lidocaine with epinephrine (LE) at different doses on bupivacaine-induced cardiotoxicity in rats. Methods: In our study, 24 Wistar albino rats were divided into four groups: I) Control; II) LE, 1 mg kg(-1); III) LE, 3 mg kg(-1) and IV) LE, 6 mg kg(-1). Intravenous bupivacaine was administered at a dose of 3 mg kg(-1) min(-1) to the anaesthetized rats in all groups until cardiac asystole was achieved. L . . .E was administered at the doses of 1, 3 and 6 mg kg(-1) min(-1) using infusion, simultaneously with bupivacaine. The asystole time and 75% decrement time in mean arterial blood pressure (MABP) were determined. P-Q, Q-T and QRS intervals were measured using electrocardiography (ECG) recordings. Results: LE significantly increased the asystole time and 75% decrement time in MABP at the doses of 3 and 6 mg kg(-1) compared to the control group ( Daha fazlası Daha az

Introduction: Otitis media with effusion (OME) is one of the most common diseases in childhood. It is the most common reason of acquired hearing loss in pre-school childhood. We aimed to draw attention to the importance of diagnosing OME by otoscopic and tympanometric examination in early eras and to determine the risk factors in our cases. Methods: The present study was conducted in our hospital with a total of 31 OME children between the ages of 8 months and 6 years who were followed by the children's and otorhinolaryngology clinics between 2013 and 2014. The etiologic factors in patients who were detected with effusion by otoscop . . .ic and tympanometric examination were documented. Results: A total of 350 children were evaluated between the ages of 8 months and 6 years. Of the total, only 31 children (8.8%) were diagnosed with OME. The mean age of children was 27.1 +/- 16.9 months. Seventeen patients (54.8%) were males, and 14 patients (45%) were females. Twenty-nine had bilateral OME. Type B tympanogram curves were found in 54 (90%), and type C2 curves were found in 6 (10%) of all patients. The sensitivity of the skin prick test was found in 33.3% for one or more allergens. The skin prick test was positive in all cases in which eosinophil cationic protein levels were considered significantly positive. The adenoid tissue was larger than normal sizes in 13 (43.3%) patients. Conclusion: OME is a serious public health problem with leading conductive type hearing loss, retardation of speech, and developmental speech and language problems. Therefore, otoscopic examination is crucial in children in all hospital admissions for any reasons Daha fazlası Daha az

Malignancy, immunosuppressive drug use, and diabetes mellitus (DM) are defined as risk factors for herpes zoster. A 58-year-old male patient with the diagnosis of DM was admitted to the emergency room with the complaints of double vision. His neurological examination revealed under activity of the right lateral rectus muscle and hypoactive deep tendon reflexes. In this report, we discuss a rare case of isolated abducens nerve palsy that occurred after postviral infection in the patient.
