Volkan Suba??,Hasan Tokta?,ümit Seil Demirda,Aycan Türel
Türkiye Fiziksel Tip ve Rehabilitasyon Dergisi , 2012,
Abstract: Objective: In this study, we aimed to compare the clinical effect of land-based and water-based exercise programs in patients with subacromial impingement syndrome. Materials and Methods: Seventy shoulders were randomized to water-based (n=35) or land-based (n=35) exercise program. The intervention in the water-based exercise group consisted of hot pack, transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS), ultrasound (US) and exercise in the water; and in the land-based exercise group, consisted of hot pack, TENS, US and land-based exercises. The measurement was performed after the treatment and 3 months after the beginning of the treatment. We used visual analog scale (VAS) for pain assessment and shoulder function was measured with the Shoulder Pain and Disability Index and the Western Ontario Rotator Cuff Index. Results: Patient demographics and baseline values were similar for both groups. The pain reduction in both groups was statistically significant at the first follow-up. A significant reduction in pain at second follow-up was observed in the water-based exercise group compared with the land-based exercise group. We found statistically significant recuperation in both groups for functional index and more recuperation in the water-based exercise group at the second follow-up. Conclusion: A greater improvement in pain and functional capacity was achieved with combination of physical therapy and water-based exercise program in patients with subacromial impingement syndrome.

Medical Journal of Bakirk?y , 2010,
Abstract: Objective: To determine the hospital infections during six years in physical medicine and rehabilitation clinic. Materials and Methods: This retrospective study was performed via the records of Infection Control Committee and Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Clinic of the University. Results: Twelve patients with hospital infections were determined. The diagnosis of the patients were spinal cord injury (7/12, 58.3%) hemiplegia (4/12, 33.3%), and transvers myelitis (1/12, 8.3%). The most common hospital infections were urinary system infections, soft tissue infections, pneumonia, and bacteremia, with a prevalence of 6 (%50), 3 (25%), 2 (16.7%), and 1 (8.3%), respectively. Conclusion: It was found that the prevalence of hospital infections determined in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Clinic can be omitted in the respect of surveillance. In conclusion, it seems acceptable that local or unitary surveillance studies can be excluded in physical medicine and rehabilitation clinics without extensive rehabilitation services and adequate staff.

Türkiye Fiziksel Tip ve Rehabilitasyon Dergisi , 2009,
Abstract: Objective: To evaluate the sleep quality in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients using Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) and to determine the factors that may affect sleep quality.Materials and Methods: Fifty five RA patients who fullfilled American College of Rheumatology diagnosis criteria for RA and 20 healthy persons were included in the study. Demographic data of each subject, the disease duration and DAS 28 scores for each RA patient were recorded. Results: There was no difference between the two groups in mean age and sex (p>0.05). The mean disease duration of RA patients was 6.3±6.5 years and the mean DAS 28 score was 3.5±1.3. The mean Global PSQI score was found significantly high in RA group compared to control group. Sleep quality was assessed as poor (global score ≥5) in 35 (63.6%) RA patients and in 5 (25.0%) subjects in the control group (p=0.003). The mean Global PSQI score was higher in RA patients who were not administered TNF-a blocker compared to those who were administered (respectively 6.9±3.9, 5.2±2.6, p=0.326), but the difference was not statistically significant. On the other hand, a significant correlation was found between Global PSQI score and DAS 28 score (r=0.270 p=0.046).Conclusion: The sleep quality of RA patients is worse than the healthy persons. PSQI questionnaire may be used to evaluate sleep quality in RA patients. It is reported that biologic agent treatment can have some benefits in RA patients with sleep disturbances. Further researches with large samples should be held to investigate the effects of biologic agents on sleep quality. Turk J Phys Med Rehab 2009;55:107-10.
Differences between urban and rural population with respect to demand on forestry aspects, in a case study of the Turkish province of Bal kesir
Erol, Seil Yurdakul;
Ciência Rural , 2012, DOI: 10.1590/S0103-84782012000300009
Abstract: inhabitants of urban and rural areas are important participants in the process of developing and implementing forest policy. thus, it is essential to determine their demands and attitudes towards forestry issues. in this context, the demands and evaluation of forest functions are investigated in a case study of the turkish province of bal kesir. the findings of the case study show that differences in terms of demands among inhabitants of rural and urban areas are related to forest fires fighting, crimes fighting, forestry-tourism integration, forestation and regeneration activities, and the enlargement of forest areas. the main differences among their assessments of forest functions are related to fire wood production, and the provision of flood and erosion control, nature protection, and recreational opportunities. the findings are important for conflict management and for local decision making. by using the findings of similar studies, the provincial organizations should harmonize their priorities with the expectations of relevant interest groups.

Abstract: Andrew Moravscik’s liberal intergovernmentalist approach is considered as one of the important way of analyzing the European integration process and an useful instrument for empirical studies. Andrew Moravscik provided a theoretical framework which perceives the European integration through “two-level-game” metaphor. This study will give place to the main analysis of Moravscik’s liberal intergovernmentalist approach, its comments and foresights about European integration process and the criticism about the approach. Andrew Moravscik'in liberal hükümetleraras c yakla m Avrupa bütünle me sürecini de erlendiren nemli dü ünme ekillerinden biri ve deneysel al malar a s ndan ok yararl bir ara olarak g rülür.

A Case of Axial Spondyloarthritis without Sacroiliitis
ümit Se?kin,Hatice Bodur,Filiz Eser
Romatizma , 2009,
Abstract: Our case is an HLA B27-positive 60-year-old female patient who had been suffering from inflammatory back and heel pain for 10 years. While sacroiliitis was not observed on either magnetic resonance imaging or pelvic X-ray, all possible radiographic findings of axial spondylitis and enthesopathy were observed on the radiographs, including bamboo spine and trolley track sign. We thus stress the diagnostic difficulties.

The Turkish Nephrology, Dialysis and Transplantation Journal , 2013, DOI: 10.5262/tndt.2013.1002.02
Abstract: OBJECTIVE: Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis is more frequently used as renal replacement therapy for end stage renal failure patients. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of pentoxifylline on cytokines and permeability of peritoneum in continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis patients.MATERIAL and METHODS: 21 patients with peritoneal dialysis followed at ukurova University Department of Nephrology were included. Pentoxifylline was given 2x400 mg daily for three weeks in addition to the standard therapy. All of the patient characteristics such as age, sex, accompanied disease, duration of peritoneal dialysis, edema, body weight, drugs were recorded. Peritoneal equilibration test was done before and after pentoxifylline therapy. Kt/Vurea and creatinine clearance were calculated. Peritoneal transport type, ultrafiltrate and urine volumes and peritoneal sodium excretion were determined.RESULTS: There was no difference for the Kt/Vurea, creatinine clearence, the serum and peritoneal dialysate levels of BUN, creatinine, sodium, albumin, IL-1, IL-6, IL-10, TNF-alpha, beta-2 microglobulin between baseline and after the pentoxifylline therapy. Additionally, there was no difference for measured parameters in diabetic and nondiabetic groups. Relationships between peritoneal sodium excretion and Kt/Vurea, ultrafiltration and sum of urine volume+ultrafiltrate were not found. There was a statistically significant negative correlation between serum albumin and serum IL-10 levels at baseline and after pentoxifylline therapy (p; 0,049).CONCLUSION: Pentoxifylline was not found to be effective in peritoneal permeability. This may be related to the short duration of pentoxifylline therapy and/or the relatively small number of the patients.

Abstract: In this study, the main purpose is to present the main frame of revised version in 2001 of Bloom’s taxonomy that has been accepted extensively in our country since 1956 as well as around the world. In accordance with this purpose, in the study, answers have been searched to these questions: 1- The rise of the original Bloom’s taxonomy and what are the key features of? 2- What are the reasons for renewal of original taxonomy? 3- What kind of arrangements has been made in revised taxonomy? 4- What are the comments on Revised Taxonomy? Scanning method was used as a research method. These are the findings that were acquired in line with the research questions: 1- Between 1948-1956, a group of educators under the coordination of Bloom, developed the classification of cognitive domain. 2- Being modified of thinking and practices related with education by changes since 1956 is the leading motive of the taxonomy’s being revised. 3- In revised taxonomy, two different dimensions revealed including dimension of information and dimension of the cognitive process. 4- Dimension of information is similar to the lower stages of knowledge digit of original taxonomy. Cognitive process dimension refers to the action size of the gains.
