BACKGROUND/AIMS: The aim of present study was to assess the protective effects of Shenfu injection (SI) on the intestinal mucosa and its regulation on the mucosal immune responses in rats with sepsis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly divided into the sham, model, low-dose SI (LSF), and high-dose SI (HSF) groups. Sham animals underwent laparotomy only, whereas sepsis was modeled by cecal ligation and puncture in the remaining groups. At 2 h post-surgery, the LSF and HSF groups were intraperitoneally administered 5 and 20 mL/kg SI, respectively, whereas other animals with saline...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Pediatric intestinal pseudo-obstruction (PIPO) is a severe disorder of gut motility. In this rare and difficult-to-manage disease, complex treatment method, such as intestinal transplantation, is sometimes needed. This study evaluated the management and follow-up results of patients with PIPO who received treatment at our center. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The cases of 13 patients with PIPO were reviewed retrospectively. Demographic data, clinical features, etiologies, pharmacological and surgical treatments, nutritional support, anthropometric findings, small bowel transplantation (SBT), and survival rates were assessed...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Recently, there has been an increasing interest in the effects of probiotics and prebiotics on ulcerative colitis (UC). In the present study, we aimed to evaluate the effect of synbiotic therapy on the clinical and endoscopic activities of the disease in patients with mild-to-moderately active UC. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Overall, 40 patients with mild-to-moderate UC activity were included in the study and were randomized to the synbiotic and control groups...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: This study aimed to determine the frequency of hypertriglyceridemia (HTG)-induced acute pancreatitis (AP) and assess different clinical and prognostic features in these patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The patients who were hospitalized with AP due to HTG (HTG-AP) between January 2005 and December 2014 were retrospectively evaluated in the clinic. The patients with AP due to non-HTG (non-HTG-AP) were also investigated during the same period. RESULTS: Of 635 patients with AP admitted to the clinic, 33 (5...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: As the most common liver disease in hemodialysis patients, chronic hepatitis C (CHC) can cause cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma, even increase in renal-related mortality. In Turkey, the frequency of anti-hepatitis C virus (HCV) antibodies in hemodialysis patients ranged from 31.4% to 51%. Until recently, the mainstay of the CHC treatment for these patients was pegylated interferon with potential toxicities and low sustained virological response. The 3D regimen, a combination of four drugs (ombitasvir, paritaprevir, dasabuvir, and ritonavir), has recently been used for patients with chronic kidney disease infected with genotype 1a and 1b HCV...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Suboptimal bowel function can negatively affect colon cleansing for colonoscopy after surgery. Very few studies have compared the relationship between the colorectal resection and the bowel preparation quality. We postulated that the colon cleansing quality in patients with a history of colorectal surgery might not be inferior to that of patients with no resection history. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Overall, 200 patients were enrolled in the study and distributed into two groups: the resection group (RG) and the control group...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Kefir is a kind of fermented probiotic dairy product. The objective of the present study was to investigate the effects of kefir consumption on the fecal microflora and symptoms of patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Kefir was serially diluted and inoculated into de Man, Rogosa, and Sharpe agar and incubated at 37°C for 48 to 72 h under anaerobic conditions. This was a single-center, prospective, open-label randomized controlled trial...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Insulin resistance (IR) is closely linked with chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) and its complications, particularly hepatic fibrosis. The aim of the present study was to investigate some biochemical markers that are potentially related to IR as predictors of esophageal varices (EV) in patients with compensated HCV cirrhosis who do not have diabetes or metabolic syndrome. MATERIALS AND METHODS: One hundred subjects without diabetes with compensated HCV-related cirrhosis who did not fulfill the diagnostic criteria of metabolic syndrome were subjected to clinical, laboratory, ultrasonographic, and endoscopic assessments...

The geographical location and differences in tumor biology significantly change the management of gastric cancer. The prevalence of gastric cancer ranks fifth and sixth among men and women, respectively, in Turkey. The international guidelines from the Eastern and Western countries fail to manage a considerable amount of inconclusive issues in the management of gastric cancer.The uncertainties lead to significant heterogeneities in clinical practice, lack of homogeneous data collection, and subsequently, diverse outcomes...
