Synopsis: 
The study set the basis for assessing the growth, development and nutrition in pre-school children in eastern Turkey and it can be used as a reference study in monitoring growth and development.

ABSTRACT

Aim: To determine child's growth reference value in our province and to compare these values with current values of the United States of America and other local values of our country.

Plasma Kisspeptin Levels in Hypothyroidism and Premature Newborns

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.287
Pages: 
525-28
Synopsis: 
Kisspeptin may play a role clarification in the newborn period of various changes. A statistically significant kisspeptin levels was determined between hypothyroid and the control groups and also a statistically significant kisspeptin levels was seen between the premature and control groups.

ABSTRACT

Aim: The purpose of this study was to determine kisspeptin levels in healthy newborns and to show whether there is significant difference kisspeptin levels between males and females in hypothyroid newborns and healthy term newborns.

Comparison of Cerebral Oximeter and Pulse Oximeter Values in the First 72 Hours in Premature, Asphyctic and Healthy Newborns

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.033
Pages: 
698–702
Synopsis: 
Cerebral oximeter is a promising modality in bedside monitoring in neonatal intensive care units. It is complementary to pulse oximeter and may be used routinely in neonatal intensive care units.

ABSTRACT

Aim: The monitoring of oxygenation is essential for providing patient safety and optimal results. We aimed to determine brain oxygen saturation values in healthy, asphyctic and premature newborns and to compare cerebral oximeter and pulse oximeter values in the first 72 hours of life in neonatal intensive care units.

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2012.269
Pages: 
201–4
Synopsis: 
Ninety-one infants with rickets presented to hospital with hypocalcaemia. Vitamin D deficiency should be considered in infants presenting with hypocalcaemic convulsion.

ABSTRACT


Aim: Hypocalcaemia evaluation of the clinical, biochemical and radiological features of 91 infants with rickets who presented as hypocalcaemic convulsions.

Subjects andMethods: Ninety-one hypocalcaemic infants who were brought to hospital with convulsion and diag-nosed with rickets related to vitamin D deficiency according to their clinical, biochemical and radio-logical features were retrospectively reviewed.

Endothelial Dysfunction in Primary Sjögren Syndrome

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2012.039
Pages: 
870–2
Synopsis: 
In this study, we aimed to investigate endothelial functions in primary Sjögren syndrome. Although carotid intima-media thickness values were similar, flow mediated dilatation of the brachial artery was disrupted in patients with Sjögren syndrome compared to healthy controls.


ABSTRACT

Objective: In this study, we aimed to investigate endothelial functions in primary Sjögren syndrome.

Methods: Thirty-five patients with primary Sjögren syndrome and 20 age and sex-matched healthy volunteers were recruited to the present study. Flow mediated dilatation of brachial artery and carotid intima-media thickness were measured in the study population.

An Examination of the Effects of Leuprolide Acetate Used in the Treatment of Central Precocious Puberty on Bone Mineral Density and 25-Hydroxy Vitamin D

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.346
Pages: 
104–7
Synopsis: 
Gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonists may have an adverse effect on bone health. They may exhibit these effects by impacting on vitamin D levels.

ABSTRACT

Aim: Leuprolide acetate is a gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) analogue frequently used in the treatment of central precocious puberty. Research is currently taking place into its effects on endocrine systems. The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of leuprolide acetate on vitamin D and bone mineral density.

Ewing's Sarcoma Localized in the Mandible: A Case Report

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.099
Pages: 
444–6

ABSTRACT

Ewing's sarcoma is one of the most aggressive primary bone tumours. Ewing's sarcoma arising from the bones of the head and neck region is extremely rare; only 4–9% of all Ewing's sarcoma originate in this region. We report a case of Ewing's sarcoma localized in the mandible because of its unusual presentation.
