A Novel Marker Demonstrating Endothelial Dysfunction in Behçet's Disease, YKL-40

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.025
Synopsis: 
This study demonstrated that serum YKL-40 level was significantly higher in patients with an active and inactive Behçet's disease (BD) compared to the healthy individuals. This difference was, however, not the case between the active and inactive disease groups.

ABSTRACT

Background: To evaluate the relationship between disease activity and levels of YKL-40 in patients with Behcet’s disease (BD).

Methods: Twenty five active and twenty six inactive BD patients and 24 age and gender matched healthy control subjects were included in the study. Serum YKL-40 levels were measured using Enzyme Linked Immuno Sorbent Assay (ng/mL). Disease activity was assessed using Behcet’s Disease Current Activity Form (BDCAF).

Long-term Follow-up of Two Cases with Spinal Hydatid Cyst Disease and Repeat Surgeries

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.409

ABSTRACT

Hydatid cyst disease (HD) is an infestation caused by the larval stage of the tape worm Echinococcus granulosus. It predominantly occurs in liver and lungs. Bone involvement is quite rare (0.5%-4%); and among those, spinal disease is the most common type (44%-50%).

Ultrasonographic Measurement of the Femoral Cartilage Thickness in Patients with Behçet’s Disease

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2013.337
Pages: 
728–31
Synopsis: 
In this study, the femoral cartilage thickness of patients with Behçet’s disease (BD) was evaluated and it was found that the cartilage was thinner in patients with BD and that arthritis seems to be associated with this decrease.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To evaluate femoral cartilage thickness in patients with Behçet’s disease (BD) by using ultrasonography.

Ultrasonographic Evaluation of Femoral Cartilage Thickness in Patients with Ankylosing Spondylitis

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2013.221
Pages: 
329–32
Synopsis: 
In this study, we evaluated femoral cartilage thicknesses of patients with ankylosing spondylitis (AS). Our results indicate that AS patients seem to have thicker femoral cartilage, which could be related to anti-tumour necrosis factor (TNF) treatment.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To evaluate femoral cartilage thickness in patients with ankylosing spondylitis (AS) by using ultrasonography.
