Assessment of arrhythmia risk due to hypoglycemia with continuous glucose monitoring device and 24-hour holter monitoring

Sahin Mustafa , Keskin Caglar , Cinel Murat , Bahceci Begum , Corapcioglu Demet

Previous studies have shown increased hypoglycemia-associated cardiac arrhythmia and mortality in patients with type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.In this study, we aimed to evaluate the response of gastrointestinal hormones and glucoregulatory hormones to the oral glucose tolerance test in patients who were diagnosed with reactive hypoglycemia and to evaluate the risk of arrhythmia with long-holter ECG measurements in patients with a diagnosis o...

Surgical outcome of thyroid nodules with atypia of undetermined significance in fine needle aspiration biopsy

Karaoglan Murat , Emral Rifat , Ceyhan Koray , Cinel Murat , Bahcecioglu Adile Begum , Corapcioglu Demet

Thyroid nodules have 3–7% freuquency in general population. FNA biopsy is an important diagnostic tool for patients with thyroid nodules. There are many reporting systems for FNA biopsy and Bethesda system is the most common one. The aim of this retrospective study, detect the atypia of undetermined significance (AUS) rates in the patients who performed FNA biopsy and evaluate the concomittant biopsy results of this patients and malignancy rates in the patients who were c...

Canlar Sule , Cinel Murat , Mutlu Adile Begum Bahcecioglu , Emral Rifat , Bayram Dilek , Metinarikan Nuran , Yurdakul Birgul , Demir Ozgur , Corapcioglu Demet

Introduction: Diabetic foot is one of the important and destructive complications of diabetes. During the life time of a diabetic patient, the risk of developing foot ulcers is around 5–15%, and about 20–25% of the causes of hospitalization in diabetic patients are due to foot ulcers. 40–80% of foot ulcers can be infected and resulted in osteomyelitis. Hospitalization due to osteomyelitis is 12 times more in diabetic patients than in non-diabetic population....

Is there a role of immunohistochemical expression of pituitary hormones and proliferative marker ki-67 on long-term outcome in our acromegalic patients?

Sahin Mustafa , Keskin Caglar , Kiremitci Saba , Erden Esra , Canpolat Asena , Cinel Murat , Canlar Sule , Demir Ozgur , Gullu Sevim , Emral Rifat , Erdogan Murat Faik , Gedik Vedia , Baskal Nilgun , Corapcioglu Demet

Expression of hormones other than GH may affect the prognosis in acromegalic patients. Generally, Ki-67 is a well-known proliferative index used to predict remission in pituitary adenomas. We aimed to evaluate the relationship of immunohistochemical expression pituitary hormones, ki-67 and remission. Also we evaluated the role of pre, post-operative clinical and laboratory values, pathological characteristics on long-term remission. We included 64 acromegaly patients that were...
