Assessment of platelet reactivity after the anthracycline-based chemotherapy via mean platelet volume: Does it act on anthracycline-induced cardiotoxicity?

Aim: Anthracycline-induced cardiotoxicity is the most frequent dose-limited toxicity. There has been numerous hypothesis about this matter. As an indicator of platelet size, mean platelet volume (MPV) is correlated with platelet reactivity, aggregation, and long-term atherosclerosis. We aimed to study whether the anthracycline triggers the elevation of MPV. Material and Method: Patients who had breast carcinoma and received anthracycline-based chemotherapy…

The effect of high volume adrenalin solution infiltration on blood loss in reduction mammaplasty

Aim: One of the important complications during and after the reduction mammoplasty operation is blood loss. The most implemented method to decrease the amount of bleeding is adrenaline infiltration, but adrenalin is mostly infiltrated with the fluid in the volume less than 250cc in the clinic. It is expected that adrenaline will accumulate more in the tissue and thus, exhibit…

A comparison of serum alpha-1-antitrypsin and vitamin B12 levels in patients with vitamin B12 deficiency

Aim: Alpha-1-antitrypsin (A1AT) loses its antiprotease activity as a result of oxidation of the methionine in its structure. Vitamin B12 plays an active role as a co-factor during methionine synthesis. Thus, we think that vitamin B12 deficiency may lead to decreased A1AT. Material and Method: The research was planned as an observational study. One hundred eighty patients were enrolled. The…
