  • Transition Experiences of Newly Graduated Nurses

    • Authors: Cennet ÇİRİŞ YILDIZ ; Yasemin ERGÜN
      Abstract: Objective: This is a qualitative study based on content analysis in order to reveal the transition experiences of nurses in the first year of their profession.Methods: The study was carried out between January 2018 and March 2018 with 30 newly graduated nurses, who work in three Training and Research Hospitals, two University Hospitals and three Private Hospitals with JCI Quality Certificate and have a maximum of one year of professional experience. Data were collected through semi-structured in-depth individual interviews using face-to-face interviews. Results: Themes defined in the transition process of newly graduated nurses were emotional, sociocultural and developmental, physical and intellectual. In general, transition experiences of individuals were greatly influenced by the support that is given to the new graduate, the experience, the predictability, sincerity and consistency of the relationships with the individuals they were in contact with, and the expectations of the institution or experienced employees. In the first year of their professional experience, graduates do not feel themselves qualified, comfortable, safe and secure, and experience emotional and physical exhaustion in a short time. In addition, changes in life patterns and routines have emerged as distracting developments or unexpected burdens, particularly for new graduates experiencing adaptation problems. Conclusion: This study focused on the experiences of nurses during their first-year practice which is incredibly challenging for the new graduated nurses. It has been determined that formal and informal support programs are necessary for the new graduates to successfully start the profession.

  • The Level of Serum C-Reactive Protein and Neutrophil Lymphocyte Ratio
           According to Thyroid Function Status

    • Authors: Fatih KAR ; Zeynep Küskü KİRAZ , Evin KOCATÜRK , Sema USLU
      Abstract: Objective: We aimed to investigate neutrophil lymphocyte ratio (NLR), leukocyte count (WBC), mean platelet volume (MPV) and C-reactiveprotein levels (CRP) as inflammatory markers according to thyroid function status in hypo-hyperthyroidism patients.Methods: Data of patients (n=454, age>18) who applied to the Eskisehir Osmangazi University Hospital between March 2018 and December2018 were evaluated retrospectively. There were 79 patients in hyperthyroidism group (TSH<0.27 μIU/ml, group I), 297 patients in euthyroidgroup (TSH=0.27-4.2 μIU/ml, group II) and 78 patients in hypothyroidism group (TSH>4.2 μIU/ml, group III).Results: Serum TSH, fT4, fT3, anti-TG and anti-TPO levels were found statistically different between groups (p<0.001) but there were nosignificant difference in WBC, NLR and MPV between groups. There was a positive correlation between the NLR and CRP (r=0,295, p<0.01). Inaddition, NLR was positively correlated with WBC (r=0,412, p<0.001). Serum CRP levels were statistically higher in group I (3.5 mg/L [1.50-11])than group II (2.1 mg/L [0.86-5.42]), (p<0.001). Although CRP levels were higher in group III (2.5 mg/L [1.18-5.73]) than group II, there was nosignificant difference. CRP showed weak positive correlation with fT4 (r=0,118, p<0.05) and negative correlation with TSH (r=-0,108, p<0.05).Conclusion: High CRP levels may play an important role in the evaluation of hyperthyroidism in terms of thyroid dysfunction observed in thepresent study.

           Fathers

    • Authors: Birsel DEMİRBAĞ ; Meltem KURTUNCU , Sümeyye YASAR KIVIK
      Abstract: Objective: This study aims to assess the relationship between marital adjustment and paternal-infant attachment.Methods: This descriptive-cross sectional study was conducted between March and April 2017. No sampling was performed, the study wasconducted with 110 fathers who could be accessed between the aforementioned dates and who had babies aged between 0 to 12 monthsold. Questionnaires were asked fathers by researchers.The outcome measurements: Socio-demographic Information Form, Marital AdjustmentTest, and PIAQ. Statistical analysis was performed using SPSS 13.0 program.Results: Fathers’ MAT mean score was found 44.182±5.17, and PIAQ mean score was found 77.935±8.08. There was a positive, weak, butsignificant relationship between MAT and PIAQ (r=0.25; p=0.009). Marital adjustment scores were found to increase with the increase in“patience”, “tolerance”, and “pleasure in interaction” subscale scores. MATsubscales were found to affect each other positively, and this effectwas found to have a significant relationship with paternal-infant attachment level (p<0.05). Good relationship with the spouse was found havestatistically significant relationship with paternal-infant attachment (MWU=165.500; p=0.000).Conclusion: This study revealed that marital adjustment has effects on paternal-infant attachment.

  • Analysis of Selection Criteria of Dental Patients for General Anaesthesia
           and Conscious Sedation

    • Authors: Kader CESUR AYDIN ; Oğuzhan DEMIREL
      Abstract: Objective: The term general anaesthesia refers to a state of unconsciousness under control using pharmacological or non pharmacological agents in which patient reflexes are compeletely or partially lost. Concious sedation is a drug-induced state in which the conscious patient is rendered free of fear, anxiety, and apprehension while remaining comfortably relaxed. Both of these methods are used for various reasons in dental clinics for many years and their use in dentistry practice is increasing. Aim of this study is to quantify the number and demographic data of patients that received a dental general anaesthesia (DGA) or conscious sedation (CS) following referral from a general dental practice. Study also aimed to determine the reasons of referral and dental treatment modalities performed during the sessions. Methods: This study includes patient records who had undergone dental general anaesthesia and conscious sedation in Medipol University Dental Hospital General Anaesthesia Clinic. Data were collected from records of the University Dental Hospital. The collected information included gender, age, type of DGA/ CS, reason for DGA, treatment modalities as tooth extraction, restorative, endodontics, periodontics and pedodontics. Results: 896 patients were referred for DGA/CS during the two-year period. The mean age was 15.5 years and 27.3% were underaged children. The most common reason for DGA was dental anxiety (46.5%). 79.4% of patientd received DGA, while only 20.6% received CS. The highest mean in treatments is for decidious pulp capping (4.57) followed by decidious pulp amputation (3.57).Conclusion: Majority of the patients receiving DGA/CS are formed by dental anxiety patients. Also, the rate of underaged children were very high (27.3%).

           rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss Walbaum, 1792)

    • Authors: Şeyma ÖZER KAYA ; Seyfettin GÜR , Kenan KÖPRÜCÜ , Gaffari TÜRK , Mustafa SÖNMEZ , Sinan OZCAN
      Abstract: Objective: This study was performed to determine the effect of different ratios of n-3 series fatty acids added to the diets of rainbow trout(Oncorhynchus mykiss) on sperm motility duration.Methods: A total of 48 male rainbow trouts about 3 years of age were used in the study and 4 groups were formed. The one that n-3 series fattyacids were not added to the diet was used as control group. n-3 series fatty acids were added to the experimental groups diets at the ratiosof 1% (E1), 2% (E2) and 3% (E3), respectively. Semen was collected by abdominal massage. The time-dependent sperm motility change wasdetected under the microscope at x400 magnification.Results: A significant decrease was detected in the motility only at 360th hour in E3 group compared to the control group (p<0.05).Conclusion: As a result, it was concluded that feeding with diets containing different ratios of n-3 series fatty acids had no effect on the motilityof rainbow trout semen under in vitro condition.

  • Rare Location and Clinical Presentation of Gout Disease: Distal Ulna
           Localized Gout Disease and Acute Gout Attack of the Wrist

    • Authors: Recep ÖZTÜRK ; Hüseyin DOĞAN , Emek Mert DUMAN , Bedii Safak GUNGOR
      Abstract: Gout is one of the most common inflammatory arthritis in adults. This disorder is caused by the accumulation of monosodium urate crystals insoft tissues and joints because of the hyperuricemia. One of the lower extremity joint especially the first metatarsophalangeal joint is affectedby more than 75% of the gout attacks. In this study, we reported a rare presentation of gout disease, the acute gout attack of the wrist, in awoman, 72 years aged, who has not been diagnosed before. Gout which occurs with the involvement of the wrist is very rare and no other caseswith distal ulna localization have been reported according to our knowledge. We reported the first case of gout disease which started from distalulna. The patient was operated because the symptoms did not recover with conservative treatments.

  • Neuroprotective effects of thymoquinone against ketamine -and
           MK-801-induced neurotoxicity in SH-SY5Y cells: From the perspective of
           glutamatergic dysfunction in schizophrenia

    • Authors: Gokhan UNAL ; Beyza ERDOĞAN
      Abstract: Objective: Schizophrenia is a chronic disorder with approximately 1% prevalence and related to disrupted neurodevelopment process. It has been known that N-methyl D-Aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonists such as ketamine and MK-801 mimic schizophrenia-like behaviors in rodents and cellular changes in cell culture. There are certain preliminary reports showing the beneficial effects of Nigella sativa L. extracts or its main active ingredient, thymoquinone, on psychiatric disorders. In our study, we aimed to investigate the neuroprotective effects of thymoquinone against ketamine- and MK-801- induced neurotoxicites, which may be relevant to schizophrenia. Methods: The neurotoxic concentrations of ketamine and MK-801, and non-toxic concentrations of thymoquinone were determined by 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide (MTT) test at the 24th hour of administrations in SH-SY5Y cells. Seven different concentrations of thymoquinone (0.5 µM, 1 µM, 2.5 µM, 5 µM, 10 µM, 20 µM, 30 µM) were tested against two different concentrations of ketamine (250 µg/ml, 500 µg/ml) and one concentration of MK-801 (100 µM).Results: Ketamine (250 µg/ml and 500 µg/ml) and MK-801 (100 µM) decreased (P<0.05) the cellular viabilities at the 24 hour of administrations. Thymoquinone pretreatment prevented (P<0.05) the decrease of cell viabilities against ketamine (250 µg/ml) and ketamine (500 µg/ml) at 1 uM, 2.5 µM, 5 µM, 10 µM, 20 µM, and 2.5 µM concentrations, respectively. Thymoquinone pretreatment also increased (P<0.05) cell viability compared to MK-801. Conclusion: We suggested that thymoquinone had neuroprotective effects on the NMDA receptor antagonists induced neurotoxicity and encourage researchers for further in vivo studies for schizophrenia.

  • Efficacy of Hyaluronic Acid Gel as an Adjunct to Non-Surgical Periodontal
           Treatment in Smokers with Periodontitis: A Retrospective Case Control
           Study

    • Authors: Hafize ÖZTÜRK ÖZENER ; Ömer Birkan AĞRALI , Hatice Selin YILDIRIM
      Abstract: Objective: To investigate the clinical effectiveness of adjunctive hyaluronic acid (HA) application to non-surgical periodontal treatment (NSPT) on periodontal parameters and gingival crevicular fluid (GCF) volume in smoking patients with stage III and grade C periodontitis.Methods: Records of patients who underwent previously NSPT with or without HA gel application were reviewed. The clinical examinations and radiographs of patients, which were collected, are used as data. At baseline, 1 and 3 months, periodontal parameters such as plaque index (PI), gingival index (GI), bleeding on probing (BOP), probing depth (PD) and clinical attachment level (CAL), and GCF volume were assessed. Results: Total 20 patients (male/female: 15/5) were included in the study who met the eligibility criteria. For 10 of these patients only NSPT was performed (Control group), the other 10 patients received NSPT with HA gel application (Test group). Intra‐group differences in both groups were significant in periodontal parameters: PI (both, p<0.001), GI (both, p<0.001), BOP (both, p<0.001), PD (both, p<0.05) and CAL (both, p<0.05); and in GCF volume (both, p<0.05). No statistically significant differences were determined between the treatment groups at any assessment time periods in any outcomes (all, p>0.05) nor in the changes (∆) with time (all, p>0.05).Conclusion: Compared to NSPT alone, the application of HA as adjunct to NSPT did not have any additional clinical effectiveness in smokers having periodontitis.

  • Effects of Cold Band Application Treatment on Pain and Quality of Life in
           Migraineurs: A Self-Controlled Study

    • Authors: Şengül ÜZEN CURA ; Rengin ACAROĞLU
      Abstract: Objective: The aim of this study was to examine the effect of applying cold band treatment to migraineurs on the duration and severity of migraine headaches, and on migraine-specific life quality.Methods: Patients referred to neurology clinic and diagnosed with migraine by a neurologist were examined prospectively. A self-controlled research design was applied to minimize individual differences. The sample group participating in the study were monitored over the course of four migraine attacks: two before and two during application period.Results: Comparison of the mean values of pain duration for pre-application and application periods revealed no statistically significant difference (p>0.05). However, there was found to be a significant difference between mean pain intensity total scores (p<0.05). At 30th and 60th- minute points, it was noted that the mean value of the total pain scores for the application period decreased significantly (p<0.05). Also, it was recognized that the 24-hour Migraine Quality of Life Scale showed statistically significant increase in total score and in subscale scores when compared to pre-application period (p=0.0001).Conclusions: The application of a cold band to forehead was found to have a positive effect in reducing pain severity and also improving quality of life.

           Focal Cortical Dysplasia

    • Authors: Özgür BİLGİN TOPÇUOĞLU ; İpek MİDİ
      Abstract: Objective: To assess the localizing value of interictal scalp EEG in epileptic focal cortical dysplasia (FCD) patients.Methods: A retrospective observational study of EEG records of epileptic patients seen at the Marmara University Hospital was performed. EEG and MRI findings were evaluated to detect a possible correlation. Results: EEG findings were consistent with MRI findings in 6 patients (37.5%).Conclusion: EEG findings were irrelevant in 62.5% (n:10) of patients. Additional imaging techniques such as ictal SPECT, MEG etc. will clearly augment the success of lesion localisation in FCD patients.

      Abstract: Objective: Tideglusib is a GSK-3 inhibitor activating Wnt/β-catenin signaling pathway which has significant importance in regenerative response.The aim of this study was to evaluate the cytotoxicity and protein expression impacts of Tideglusib on human periodontal cell lines.Methods: Cytotoxicity effect of different concentrations (50nM, 100nM, 200nM) of Tideglusib application on human gingival fibroblast (hGF),periodontal ligament fibroblast (hPDLF), and osteoblast (hOB) cell lines was determined. Type-I and III collagen expressions were evaluatedafter 24-hour application of 50nM Tideglusib.Results: The cytotoxicity of 200nM Tideglusib was higher in hGF and hOB (p<0.05), but no difference was found in hPDLF compared to therespective control group (p>0.05). The hGF and hOB treated with 50nM Tideglusib expressed an increased level of Type-I collagen (p<0.05), butno difference was detected in the hPDLF compared to the respective control (p>0.05). Type-III collagen expressions were similar between thetest and control groups for each cell line (p>0.05).Conclusion: Tideglusib is not cytotoxic at 50nM and 100nM concentrations and may have positive effect on bone regeneration rather thanperiodontal regeneration since it stimulated Type-I collagen production in hGF and hOB cells, but not in hPDLF.

  • Camellia Sinensis Leaves Hydroalcoholic Extract Improves the Alzheimer’s
           Disease-Like Alterations Induced by Type 2 Diabetes in Rats

    • Authors: Muhammet Emin ÇAM ; Turgut TAŞKIN
      Abstract: Objective: Novel investigations have confirmed that hyperglycemia is strictly associated with the development of cognitive impairment and dementia. Sodium-dependent glucose transporter (SGLT) inhibitors, which are oral antidiabetic drugs, are currently being investigated as the medication in Alzheimer's disease (AD). In our study, Camellia sinensis (green tea), which inhibits sodium-dependent glucose transporter-1 (SGLT-1), was used in the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM)-induced AD-like alterations via its antidiabetic effects.Methods: High-fat diet/streptozotocin-treated rat model was chosen to provide T2DM-induced AD-like alterations. Antidiabetic effects were evaluated with the measurement of blood glucose level (BGL), oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT), and insulin tolerance test (ITT). On the other hand, novel object recognition test (NORT), open field test (OFT), passive avoidance test (PAT), and Morris’s water maze (MWM) test were performed to investigate the anti-Alzheimer's effects of C. Sinensis.Results: C. sinensis tolerated BGL for a short time but metformin, the first medication prescribed for T2DM, tolerated BGL during the test for 120 min. C. sinensis increased the number of square crosses and the frequency of grooming activity in a similar manner to metformin in OFT. C. sinensis treatment improved exploratory behavior and memory retention components in NORT. The step-through latency decreased in HFD/STZ-treated rat model but it improved with metformin and C. sinensis treatment in PAT. According to the results obtained by the MWM test, C. sinensis treatment slightly improved learning.Conclusion: C. sinensis improved short-term memory and increased the locomotor activity in rats according to the results obtained by NORT, OFT, and PA.

           Food Habits in Adolescents

    • Authors: İndrani KALKAN ; Fatma Feyzan AYDIN
      Abstract: Objective: Balanced nutrition is of special importance in adolescence however, eating behaviors may be negatively influenced during this stage due to several factors. The objective of this research was to investigate the effect of a nutrition training program on nutrition literacy level and food habits of a group of adolescents.Method: Adolescent Nutritional Literacy Scale (ANLS) and Adolescent Food Habits Checklist (AFHC) was used to determine the nutrition literacy level and food habits of 200 highschool students in Istanbul between September 2018 and April 2019. Effect of a face to face training, for 8 hrs over 4 weeks on nutrition related topics, were investigated on nutrition literacy level and food habits of the students.Results: Mean age of the students was 15 ± 0,66 years and 57% comprised of females. ANLS and AFHC scores in general, were higher in females, however the difference was statistically significant (p <0,05) only in pre-test scores. The average adolescent nutrition literacy (ANLS) score in males were 3,31 out of 5,0 and remained unchanged after training. In females however, it significantly decreased from 3,56 to 3,44 (p <0,05). Out of 19, AFHC scores decreased significantly from 9,80 to 8,94 in males and 10,03 to 9,34 in females (p <0,05) following training. Conclusion: A short nutritional training was not sufficiently effective in reflecting the positive change in nutrition literacy level and food habits among adolescents. Possible reasons should be investigated in depth and more comprehensive and longer training should be provided to increase nutritional awareness.

  • Management of Mechanical Problems of Totally Implantable Venous Catheters

    • Authors: Halil KARA ; Akif Enes ARIKAN , Onur DULGEROGLU , Cihan URAS
      Abstract: Objective: Although the most common complications of totally implantable venous catheters(TIVC) are infection and thrombosis, mechanicalcomplications can also affect the treatment and cause catheter removal. This study aimed to investigate mechanical complications of TIVC andprevention methods.Methods: Data of 983 procedures in 961patients who underwent TIVC implantation between 2010 and 2019 in AcibademMaslak, Bakirkoy, andAtakent Hospitals were retrospectively analyzed for mechanical complications.Results: Mechanical complications were encountered in 33(3.3%) cases: 12(1.2%) were detachment of TIVC, 8(0.8%) occlusions, 5(0.5%)pneumothorax, 1(0.1%) hemothorax, 1(0.1%) malposition, 1(0.1%) extravasation, 2(0.2%) TIVC rotation, 3(0.3%) skin necrosis and extrusions.Conclusion: The catheter tip should be placed in distal superior vena cava, reservoir pocket must be sufficient in size, reservoir should be fixedto pectoral muscle or fascia at least two points with nonabsorbable sutures. Subcutaneous fatty tissue resection from reservoir pocket shouldbe performed in obese patients. The nature of the withdrawn blood form Seldinger needle should be checked visually whether venous ornot. Risk of pneumothorax and detachment can be reduced by inserting the catheter from 1/3 outer part of the clavicle during percutaneoustechnique. While complication rate can be reduced by peroperative fluoroscopy use, control X-ray should be taken in symptomatic patients, notroutinely. Malposition can be seen in the peroperative period and can usually be corrected by good manipulation. Percutaneous transcatheterretrieval in addition to surgery is the gold standard treatment for detachment of TIVC. The most important factors in preventing complicationsare surgical experience and good care.
