Objective: Leptospirosis is one of the most common zoonotic diseases worldwide. Transmission to humans usually occurs by mucosal inoculation of the bacteria or exposure of non-intact skin via contact with water or soil contaminated with urine or feces of rodents. Occupational groups such as farmers, rice plant workers, sewer workers, miners, hunters, military personnel, mariners, shepherds, milkers, slaughterhouse workers, veterinarians and laboratory personnel are under risk for leptospirosis. In this study, we aimed to determine the seroprevalence of leptospirosis in coal miners in Zonguldak region. Methods: Blood samples were obt . . .ained from total 185 volunteer coal miners, who worked in 5 coal mines of Turkish Hard Coal Authority in Zonguldak and Bartin provinces, during June and July 2013. Serum samples were stored at -80 degrees C. Additionally, we conducted an interview with each miner about demographical and epidemiological data such as age, location, duration of mining, other occupations, observing rodent or rodent excreta in the mine, noticing rodent contact with personal belongings or drinks or food in mine and hand hygiene compliance. Microscopic agglutination test (MAT), the reference diagnostic test for seroepidemiological studies of leptospirosis, was conducted in Spirochetal Diseases Diagnostic Laboratory, Veterinary Control Central Research Institute, Etlik, Ankara in June 2014. Anti-Leptospira antibody levels for 8 serotypes (Leptospira grippotyphosa Moskva V, L. australis Bratislava Jez Bratislava, L. canicola Hund Utrech IV, L. hardjo Hardjoprajitno, L. pomona Pomona, L. icterohaemorrhagiae Ictero 1, L. hebdomadis Hebdomadis ve L. patoc Patoc 1) was investigated with MAT. Results: All the miners were male and the mean age was 36 +/- 6. The mean duration of working in underground part of the mine was 11 +/- 6 years, the mean working hours was 44 +/- 6 hours a week on average. Distribution of the miners according to inhabiting location was 18.5% village, 50.3% county and 30.8% city. In addition to mining, some of the miners were also occupied with farming (7%), hunting (2.7%), seafaring (0.5%) and livestock raising (0.5%). 82.7% of the miners confirmed seeing rodents in the mine every day and 35.7% of the miners confirmed seeing rodent excreta in the mine. 68.1% reported observing sign of rodent bite on their clothes or food saving box. 91.9% of the miners reported that they saved their food in plastic or paper bags up to meal time. Hand washing rate in the mine was 76.2% among the miners and 94.3% of those were washing their hands without soap. Although, a risky environment for leptospirosis was defined, no seropositivity was detected in any of the serum samples of the miners. Conclusions: Miners reported risky environmental conditions and risky behavioral models for transmission of leptospirosis. However, no seropositivity was detected in any of the serum samples obtained from 185 miners in Zonguldak region Daha fazlası Daha az

Article | 2015 | ISTANBUL MEDICAL JOURNAL16 ( 4 ) , pp.133 - 136

Objective: Smoking in pregnancy and postpartum period causes serious healthy risks for fetuses, newborns, and children. The purpose of this study was to determine the prevalence of smoking and associated socio-demographic factors and knowledge, attitude levels, and behaviors of pregnant smokers. Methods: A descriptive study was performed on 335 pregnant women who were admitted to our clinic between March 1 and April 30, 2014. A questionnaire prepared by researchers comprising 24 questions was applied to eligible women. Statistical analysis was performed using SPSS 19 software program. Descriptive statistical data are presented as fr . . .equencies, and measurements are presented as mean +/- standard deviation. Chi-square test was used for comparison between categorical variables. Mann-Whitney U test and Kruskal-Wallis analysis of variance were used for comparisons between paired groups. Results: A total of 20.5% of pregnant women smoked throughout pregnancy. Education and income status of pregnant women did not have a significant association with smoking during pregnancy (p=0.172 and p=0.203, respectively). Smoking status was compared with pregnancy, breastfeeding, and total knowledge scores. While a significant difference did not exist between pregnancy and total knowledge scores (p=0.126, p=0.051), knowledge scores of breastfeeding was significantly lower in smoking women (p=0.031). Education status and knowledge scores were compared. Each of the three knowledge scores was higher in women with higher education levels (p=0.003, p=0.000, and p=0.001). Conclusion: Smoking during pregnancy is a major health problem. Control frequency should be increased for pregnant smokers and for their babies as well as to aid in the early diagnosis of potential problems. Doctors, nurses, and midwives should remind patients who quit smoking during pregnancy that they should take professional help to not start smoking again in the postpartum period Daha fazlası Daha az

Ozturk, Mesut | Aslan, Serdar | Saglam, Dilek | Bekci, Tumay | Bilgici, Meltem Ceyhan

Article | 2018 | EURASIAN JOURNAL OF MEDICINE50 ( 1 ) , pp.56 - 58

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.

Trisomy 3q is a very rarely reported chromosomal disorder. Duplication of part of the long arm of human chromosome 3 causes a distinct and severe syndrome that leads to multiple congenital abnormalities. A 27 year-old pregnant woman was admitted to our clinic at 17 weeks of gestation. Prenatal sonography identified a fetus with an omphalocele that contained the liver and bowel, mild ventriculomegaly and polyhydramnios. Amniocentesis revealed the karyotype of 46, XY, der (3) (3qter›3q21

Sarikaya, Selda | Tur, Birkan Sonel | Kurtais, Yesim | Karapolat, Hale Uzumcugil | Soyupek, Feray | Hafiz, Meliha | Sarp, Umit


Objective: Cardiopulmonary (CPR) programs were developed to improve and stabilize the physical, psychological, social, mental, professional, and economic conditions of patients with cardiovascular and pulmonary diseases. Although it is known that CPR reduces mortality and morbidity, it is not widely implemented as it is in Turkey. In this study, we aimed to determine the level of CPR awareness among physicians and allied health professionals. Material and Methods: This was a multi-center, cross-sectional survey study. The study included physicians, nurses, physiotherapists, and other allied health professionals who were informed abo . . .ut the survey and provided written consent to participate. Results: A total of 727 volunteers from 12 different centers were included in the study. Of the participants, 59.5% were physicians, 31.4% were nurses, 5.9% were physiotherapists, and 3.2% were other allied health professionals; 79.3% participants answered the question on if they have had any idea about CPR. Participants indicated that patients should be referred to cardiac pulmonary rehabilitation after a coronary artery bypass (83.8%), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (83.2%), and cardiac valve surgery (38.9%). Only 40.1% of the survey participants provided information about CPR to patients, while 20.5% did not provide any information about CPR. Conclusion: This survey study determined that in centers where CPR could be implemented, health professionals have knowledge about CPR. If the study were conducted nationwide, the level of awareness might be even lower. Although it is an idea of CPR, the level of knowledge for this issue is not adequate. As the number of the CPR centers will increase, the knowledge of doctors and allied health professionals will advance Daha fazlası Daha az

Background: Blood loss and replacement is still a controversial issue in major orthopaedic surgery. Allogenic blood transfusion may cause legal problems and concerns regarding the transmission of transfusion-related diseases. Cellsaver Systems (CSS) were developed as an alternative to allogenic transfusion but CSS transfusion may cause coagulation, infection and haemodynamic instability. Aims: Our aim was to analyse the efficiency and cost analysis of a cell saver auto-transfusion system in the total knee arthroplasty procedure. Study Design: Retrospective comparative study. Methods: Those patients who were operated on by unilateral . . ., cemented total knee arthroplasty (TKA) were retrospectively evaluated. Group 1 included 37 patients who were treated using the cell saver system, and Group 2 involved 39 patients who were treated by allogenic blood transfusion. The groups were compared in terms of preoperative haemoglobin and haematocrit levels, blood loss and transfusion amount, whether allogenic transfusion was made, degree of deformity, body mass index and cost. Results: No significant results could be obtained in the statistical comparisons made in terms of the demographic properties, deformity properties, preoperative laboratory values, transfusion amount and length of hospital stay of the groups. Average blood loss was calculated to be less in Group 1 ( Daha fazlası Daha az

Objective: A debate is open on the effects of lipid-lowering drugs on sexual function. We aimed to investigate the effect of atorvastatin use on penile intracavernosal pressure (ICP) and cavernosal morphology. Material and methods: Fourteen mature male Sprague-Dawley-rats were randomly assigned to either the control group (which received standard food and water ad libitum) or the atorvastatin group (which received standard food, water, and statin) for twelwe weeks. At the end of the study, ICPs were measured with cavernosometry. Penectomy specimens were histologically examined. Results: The following mean values were obtained for th . . .e control and atorvastatin groups, respectively: pre-study body weights (350±16.9 g and 331.4±24.9 g); post-study body weights (356±18 g and 368±22.5 g (p>0.05); ICPs at 5 V (5.96±5.16 mmHg and 2.11±1.22 mmHg (p=0.07)); ICPs at 10 V (18.28±14.1 mmHg and 5.56±5.58 mmHg) (p=0.09); testosterone (1.23±0.78 and 0.78±0.58 mmol/dL) (p=0.39); blood glucose (151±22 mg/dL and 168.6±16.2 mg/dL) (p=0.12); triglyceride (93.4±19.8 mg/dL and 52.1±18.6 mg/ dL) (p=0.01); total cholesterol (50.2±7.2 mg/dL and 47.7±6.6 mg/dL) (p=0.51); and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol (10.0±4.4 mg/dL and 3.5±2.1 mg/dL) (p=0.01). The mean collagen thickness was similar (p=0.09); but the mean elastin thickness increased in the atorvastatin group (p=0.01). Conclusion: The present study showed that the use of atorvastatin reduced the intracavernosal pressure in 10 V stimulation, and minimally decreased testosterone levels in rats, within a short period of time. When statin treatment is considered for its protective properties on cardiovascular system or for its lipid-lowering effect. It should be kept in mind that atorvastatin may also adversely contribute to erectile dysfunction. © 2019 by Turkish Association of Urology Daha fazlası Daha az

Yildirim, Fatma | Ocal, Serpil | Ersoy, Ebru Ortac | Rollas, Kazim | Aydogan, Burcu Basarik

Review | 2017 | EURASIAN JOURNAL OF PULMONOLOGY19 ( 2 ) , pp.54 - 64

High-flow nasal oxygen (HFNO) therapy has several physiological advantages over traditional oxygen therapy devices, including decreased nasopharyngeal resistance, washing out of the nasopharyngeal dead space, generation of positive pressure in the pharynx, increasing alveolar recruitment in the lungs, humidification of the airways, increased fraction of inspired oxygen and improved mucociliary clearance. Recently, the use of HFNO in treating adult critical illness patients has significantly increased, and it is now being used in many patients with a range of different disease conditions. However, there are no established guidelines . . .to direct the safe and effective use of HFNO for critical patients. This review summarizes the positive physiological effects, mechanisms of action, and the clinical applications of HFNO with available published literatures Daha fazlası Daha az
