Authors: Sebastian M, Sebastian A, SroczyƄski M, Rudnicki J Abstract Abdominal pseudocyst (AP) is quite a rare complication after ventriculoperitoneal shunting (VPS) for the treatment of hydrocephalus. Laparoscopy is an alternative method to open surgery with well-known advantages. There are not many reports of using laparoscopy to treat this condition and existing algorithms are based on small groups of patients; thus every case would give an additional insight into the treatment of this complication. A 37-year-old male patient with a history of VPS presented with headache, nausea and upper abdominal pain. Comput...

Authors: Erdem VM, Donmez T, Uzman S, Ferahman S, Hatipoglu E, Sunamak O Abstract Introduction: Laparoscopic appendectomy (LA) has been generally performed under general anesthesia. Laparoscopic appendectomy is rarely performed under regional anesthesia because of pneumoperitoneum-related problems. Aim: To compare spinal/epidural anesthesia (SEA) and general anesthesia (GA) during LA with respect to perioperative and postoperative adverse events and postoperative pain. Material and methods: Fifty patients, aged 18-65, who underwent LA, were randomly allocated to two groups: the GA (n = 25) and SEA (n = 25) ...

“Laziness may appear attractive, but work gives satisfaction.” – Anne Frank Does your to-do list today fill you with the desire to chuck it all and chill out somewhere? Maybe you’ve gotten so jammed up that your schedule simply has no breathing room, no time for you to do anything you want because you’re overcommitted, unable to say no, or way behind on projects, tasks and chores already.

Introduction: Studies found that higher risk appraisal of radiofrequency electromagnetic fields is associated with reporting more non-specific symptoms such as headache and back pain. There is limited data available on the longitudinal nature of such associations and what aspects of risk appraisal and characteristics of subjects are relevant.Objective: To examine cross-sectional and longitudinal associations between risk appraisal measures and non-specific symptoms, and assess the role of subject characteristics (sex, age, education, trait negative affect) in a general population cohort.

AbstractThe exact mechanism of the migraine pathophysiology remained unclear. Although there are some reports showing low-grade inflammation in migraineurs, further studies are needed in this field. Thus, we designed a study to evaluate the serum levels of two main proinflammatory markers in migraine patients. In this case-control research, 43 migraine patients (23 chronic and 20 episodic migraineurs) and 40 age-sex-matched headache-free controls were studied. Demographic, dietary, and anthropometric data, headache characteristics, and serum C-reactive proteins (CRP) and tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF- α) assessmen...
