Article | 2011 | European Journal of General Medicine8 ( 4 ) , pp.273 - 279

Amaç: Bu çalışmanın amacı obstrüktif uyku apne sendromu (OUAS) olan hastalarda insülin rezistansı ve serum leptin seviyelerini incelemek ve OUAS olan hastaların vücut kitle indeksini (VCİ) kontrol grubuyla karşılaştırmaktır. Metod: Apne hipopne indeksi (AHİ)?5 olan 28 hasta çalışmaya dahil edildi. Sağlıklı 32 birey kontrol grubu olarak kullanıldı. Çalışmaya katılan bireylerden glukoz, insülin ve leptin seviyelerini ölçmek için açlık durumunda venöz kan elde edildi. İnsülin rezistans indeksinde, hemostaz modeli analiz methodu (HOMA-IR) temel alındı. Bulgular: OUAS grubu ile kontrol grubu arasında serum leptin seviyeleri (kontrol grub . . .u, 32.88 ± 24.22 ng/ml, OUAS grubu, 24.93 ± 25.84 ng/ml) ve HOMA-IR (kontrol grubu, 3.01 ± 1.81, OUAS grubu, 2.58 ± 1.21) açısından anlamlı bir fark yoktu. OUAS olan hastalarda insülin rezistansı ve plazma leptin konsantrasyonları AHİ’den bağımsızdı ve kontrol grubundan farklı değildi. Sonuç: İnsülin rezistansı ve plazma leptin konsantrasyonları sıklıkla VKİ ve obesitenin derecesiyle ilişkili olduğunu düşünüyoruz. Bu parametreler OUAS olan hastalarda AHİ ile ilişkili olmadığı gözükmektedr. Aim: The aim of this study was to assess the insulin resistance and serum leptin levels in patients with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS), and to compare body mass indexes (BMI) of OSAS patients with matched controls without OSAS. Method: Twenty eight patients having apnea-hypopnea index (AHI)≥5 included in the study. Thirty two healthy subjects assumed as a control group. Venous blood was obtained in the fasting state for the measurement of glucose, insulin and leptin levels. Insulin resistance index was based on the homeostasis model assesment method (HOMA-IR). Result: There was no significant difference in the serum leptin levels (control group, 32.88±24.22 ng/ml, OSAS group, 24.93±25.84 ng/ml) and HOMA-IR (control group, 3.01±1.81, OSAS group, 2.58±1.21) between control group and OSAS patients. Insulin resistance and circulating plasma leptin concentrations in OSAS patients were independent of the AHI and were not different from the control group. Conclusion: We concluded that insulin resistance and plasma leptin concentrations are mostly associated with the degree of obesity and BMI. Those parameters seem not to be related with the AHI in OSAS patients Daha fazlası Daha az

Aim: This study was designed to investigate the effects of gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonist (GnRHa) on the ovulation rate, the oocyte number and maturation in mice superovulated with equine chorionic gonadotropin (eCG) and human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG). Methods: Thirty female mice, aging 3 months and weighing between 25-30 g, were assigned to the three experimental groups of control, superovulated and GnRHa treated, each containing 10 animals. Control mice were received only the intraperitoneal (i.p.) injection of 0.1 ml 0.9% NaCl. Superovulated mice were given an i.p. injection of 5 IU of eCG followed 48 hr later by 5 IU . . . of hCG injection (i.p.). The GnRHa treated mice were received an intramuscular (i.m.) injection of a 20 mg/kg GnRHa (buserelin) 24 hr before the superovulation with eCG -hCG. Thirteen hr after hCG administration, mice were sacrificed by cervical dislocation. The ovaries and the fallopian tubes were also harvested for counting the corpora lutea and cumulus-enclosed oocytes. Results: The oocyte number and the maturation, ovulation rate, and the corpus luteum number were higher in GnRHa treated mice than controls and superovulated mice. Conclusion: It is concluded that an i.m. injection of the GnRHa 24 hr before the superovulation with eCG-hCG increases the oocyte number and maturation, and ovulation rate, thus, could be used for in vivo and in vitro fertilizations Daha fazlası Daha az

It has been shown that Long Term Oxygen Therapy (LTOT) improves polycythemia secondary to hypoxemia and right heart failure, decreases pulmonary hypertension, improves quality of life and increases life expectancy in COPD patients. In our study we aimed to evaluate clinical data, mortality, patient's adherence and efciency of the therapy in COPD patients receiving LTOT. Mean age was 70.5%±9.7 and 57% of the participiants were male. It was shown that one year hospital admission count after LTOT (0.56±0.79) was decreased according to one year hospital admission count before LTOT (1.14±1.64). When arterial blood gas values after LTOT c . . .ompared to the values at the time prescription PaO2 was increased (47.9±4, 53.4±9) and PaCO2 was decreased (56.1±11, 50.5±11). Although there was no signifcant diference in pulmonary artery pressure after LTOT, a signifcant increase was determined in hematocrit (38.37±6, 40.14±6). 41.1% of the patients had at least once device maintanence, and after LTOT only 38.4% had a clinical control due to COPD. The most common reason for irregular use was lack of necessity. Mean daily oxygen usage was 13.88±4.35 hours/day and 68.8% of the patients were using 15 hours or more. Mean follow-up of the patients were 17.85±14.53 (1-55) months and mortality rate in this period was 67%. Mortality was higher in LTOT with 15hours/day or more compared to less than 15 hours (respectively 54.6%, 12.5%). In conclusion, all patients with an indication for LTOT should be followed by national registry system and monitored in terms of technical services. Patients adherence and routine controls should be provided. Key words: COPD, mortality, concentrator, oxygen, LTOT © 2015, TIP ARASTIRMALARI DERNEGI. All rights reserved Daha fazlası Daha az

Article | 2015 | European Journal of General Medicine12 ( 4 ) , pp.344 - 349

Aim of this study is to determine the left and right ventricle functions by echocardiography in patients with newly diagnosed obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and to investigate whether there is a relationship between the apelin levels and systolic and diastolic functions of the right and left ventricles. Study included 44 patients (30 males, 14 females; mean age 49.8±11.5 years) diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea according to polysomnographically determined apnea hypopnea index, and 30 control subjects (25 males, 5 females; mean age 43.03±10.89 years) diagnosed with simple snoring. Apelin levels of all the study subjects are measu . . .red. Systolic and diastolic functions of both ventricles were evaluated with the help of conventional and tissue Doppler methods. Results: Systolic and diastolic blood pressure levels of the OSA group were significantly higher compared to those of the AHI control group. Lateral inferior and anterior E’ were significantly lower whereas E/E’ was significantly higher in the OSA group compared to the control group (8.40±3.24 vs. 10.80±3.24; p=0.001, 7.50±2.60 vs 9.00±2.51; p=0.009, 7.90±2.68 vs. 8.90±2.73; p=0.006, 7.57±3.20 vs. 6.44±1.55; p=0.023, respectively). Although the apelin levels were higher in the OSA group compared to the control group, this difference did not reach statistical significance. Age, AHI, and echocardiographic indices were not correlated with the apelin levels. There was no relationship between the severity of OSA and the apelin levels, either. This study showed diastolic functions may be impaired in patinets with newly diagnosed OSA. Apelin levels which has been shown to play an important role in cardiovascular hemodynamics, had no significant correlation with OSA severity. Moreover, there was no significant correlation between the apelin levels and echocardiographically assessed systolic and diastolic functions of both ventricles. © 2015, TIP ARASTIRMALARI DERNEGI.
