Is migraine related to medial meningeal artery and spinous foramen caliber?

Aim: Although migraine is one of the headache disorders for which people most often consult a doctor, it still does not have a specific diagnostic laboratory or radiologic test. Vasodilation of the medial meningeal artery is widely believed to cause migraines. However, some current hypotheses decrease the role of the vasodilation. If the medial meningeal artery dilates during attacks, in…

Surgical management of 3 and 4-part proximal humerus fractures with locking plates in elderly

Aim: Proximal humeral fractures are approximately 5% of all fractures and, %15-20 is displaced and unstable. By the introduction of locking plates there used to be a substantial rise in the osteosynthesis of the 3 and 4-part proximal humeral fractures. But there is still a lack of consensus for the optimal treatment of these complex fractures. In this retrospective study,…

The importance of CD56 and CD98 levels in patients with recurrent implantation failure

Aim: Despite major advances in assisted reproductive techniques, clinical pregnancy rates remain around 31% with fresh embryo transfer and around 41% with oocyte donations. We also know that the implantation process itself and the window period defined as the ‘’implantation phase’’ are significantly important for successful in-vitro fertilization (IVF) cycles. With this study we have tried to determine any differences…

Evaluation of the association between the neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio and mortality in the patients followed up with the diagnosis of sepsis

Aim: Neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) is an easily measurable biomarker from complete blood count. NLR has been investigated previously as a potential predictor of survival rates in various types of cancers. However, there is a limited number of studies performed regarding the usefulness of NLR for predicting mortality in patients with sepsis. Our aim in this study was to evaluate the…
