Effect of abdominal obesity on insulin resistance and the components of the metabolic syndrome: Evidence supporting obesity as the central feature Authors:Türkoǧlu, Çavlan; Duman, Belgin Süsleyici; Günay, Demet; Çaǧatay, Penbe; Ozcan, Remzi; Buyukdevrim, Ahmet Sevim
Publisher and Date:(F D-Communications Inc., 2003)Background: Metabolic syndrome includes abdominal obesity diabetes type 2 hypertension dyslipidemia derangements of fibrinolysis and atherosclerosis. Since abdominal obesity is one of the major components of the insulin resistance syndrome (IRS) an attempt was made to evaluate the interrelationships between the magnitude of obesity and the components of the syndrome. Methods: A cross-sectional study of 123 subjects with type 2 diabetes of whom M were normal body weight and 92 had varying degrees ...

Publisher and Date:(Taylor & Francis Ltd, 2005)Background: The results of studies that clarify the association of genetic markers at the apolipoprotein B (apo B) gene (EcoRI and XbaI polymorphisms) with coronary artery disease (CAD) are not consistent and suggest that the effect is context dependent (dependent on ethnicity and sex). The present study represents the first investigation of the apo B gene polymorphisms in Turkish patients with CAD and their influence on lipid levels. Aim: The study investigated the association of apo B gene EcoRI ...
Left versus bi-atrial intraoperative saline-irrigated radiofrequency modified maze procedure for atrial fibrillation Authors:Güden, Mustafa; Akpınar, Belhhan; Çaynak, Barış; Türkoǧlu, Çavlan; Özyedek, Zeki; Sanisoğlu, İlhan; Saǧbaş, Ertan; Aytekin, Saide; Oztekin, Seher Deniz
Publisher and Date:(2003)Background: This study was conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of the saline-irrigated radiofrequency modified maze operation for the treatment of chronic atrial fibrillation (AF) and compare the results of the left and bi-atrial procedures. Material and method: During a period of two years 105 patients with chronic AF having concomitant cardiac surgery underwent the procedure. Patients underwent either a bi-atrial (n = 48) or left atrial (n = 57) maze procedure. The first twenty patients ...

Günümüzde insidansı giderek artan kalp yetersizliğinde programlı hücre ölümü olarak bilinen apoptozun moleküler ve biyokimyasal mekanizması henüz tam olarak aydınlatılamamıştır. Apoptoz aktif hücre içi haberleşme, hücreler arası yüzey teması kaybı, hücre büzüşmesi, DNA fragmantasyonu ve fagositoz ile karakterizedir. Apoptozun kalp yetersizliğinin fizyolojik ve patofizyolojik süreçlerinde önemli görevler üstlendiği mevcut bilgiler ile desteklenmektedir. Kalp yetersizliğinde kardiyomiyosit apoptozunu ...
Programmed cell death in heart failure: Review [Programlı hücre ölümünün kalp yetersizliǧindeki yeri] The molecular and biochemical mechanisms of programmed cell death also known as apoptosis have not yet to be fully elucidated. Apoptosis is characterized by active intracellular communication loss of cellular attachment cell shrinkage DNA fragmentation and phagocytosis. Recently accumulated evidence indicates that apoptosis is involved in both physiological and pathophysiological processes of heart failure. Many factors have been identified that induce cardiomyocyte apoptosis during heart failure. ...
