Background: The pathophysiology of atherosclerosis development in patients with diabetes mellitus (DM) is similar to that in nondiabetics. However, atherosclerosis develops earlier and runs a rapid course in patients with diabetes. Aortic stiffness, strain and distensibility are the parameters used to assess an increase in arterial stiffness and can be measured by invasive and non-invasive methods. Method: Aortic elastic properties were compared among patients with normal oral glucose tolerance test but impaired fasting glucose and healthy individuals. The study group consisted of 50 subjects with impaired fasting glucose who had no . . . known risk factors for atherosclerosis. The control group was composed of the same number of volunteers. Results: It was found that aortic strain and distensibility were reduced (8.78 +/- 4.3 vs. 10.65 +/- 2.6 Daha fazlası Daha az

Objectives: We aimed to present a case of Sheehan's syndrome associated with Glanzmann's thrombasthenia. Case Report: A 41-year-old-woman presented with hemorrhagic diathesis needed blood transfusions occasionally during her life-time. In the course of her second delivery, four units of whole blood transfusion were required to control profuse uterine bleeding and her hemodynamic status. During postpartum period, she was not able to lactate and her menstrual periods did not return. Her hormonal pro. le revealed gonadotropin, TSH and prolactin deficiencies. Conclusion: According to our knowledge, this is the first case report of hypop . . .ituitarism developed after delivery in association with Glanzmann's thromboasthenia-induced severe uterine hemorrhage Daha fazlası Daha az
