Impacts on Nomadic Livestock of Strict Nature Protect Efforts: An Example from Isparta-Egirdir Region, Turkey
Hasan Alkan,Mehmet Korkmaz
Journal of Animal and Veterinary Advances , 2012,
Abstract: Many areas were allocated by various lows as protected area for conservation of natural resources in Turkey. However, the practice has caused the benefit loss that happens by reason of the prohibitions and limitations for the local people who are mainly living forest villages. As local people are an important entity of protected area and their activities (e.g., livestock, farming, etc.) are directly concerning conservation of forest and others, it is necessary to give focus on their interaction with the nature. In this study, relations between nomadic livestock and nature conservation efforts were discussed by example of Egirdir Region. Field survey was carried out to collect information in each village using interviews from 2007-2008. According to results of the study nature conservation efforts have caused to benefit loss in term of nomadic livestock in the Egirdir Region as well as Turkey. Besides, villagers haven t been adequately supported in term of alternative livelihood resources, until now. Thus, negative local perceptions have come out concerning protection efforts.

Abstract: Clothing is as visual communication a part of the social life. In the life the use of the clothing with work, everyday life or celebration has very close relationship between the clothing and communication. The woman clothing of A asar, which stands western part of Trabzon, is the adjustment of the tradition and modernizing. The main piece of the rural and regional clothing builds itself this new solemn costume up into last operational sequence. These newly fashionable clothes are a product of the rural clothing. That is communication, where the Yayla celebration and wedding used clothing of the women from Trabzon alpazar develop from the relationship tradition and new.
Social Forestry in Turkey: Twenty Years in Review
Ahmet Tolunay,Mehmet Korkmaz
Journal of Applied Sciences , 2006,
Abstract: Social forestry entered the Turkish Forestry agenda in the mid 1980`s. Initially, there were intense conceptual discussions. Later, examples that emerged in different parts of the country were considered as social forestry. Serious and planned practices started in the early 1990`s. Initial results started to influence national forestation activities. Research in the field of social forestry proved to be insufficient. To remedy this deficiency, Departments of Forest-Public Relations and Social Forestry Research were established in the Forestry Research Institutes. In the forestry organization, training activities related to social forestry were intensified. In rural development projects, social forestry activities started to be successfully implemented. While these positive developments were rapidly taking place, the nation`s foremost forestry faculty published a report that voiced negative views on social forestry concepts. For a certain period, this report caused the social forestry concept and related activities to be nationally regarded with suspicion. Despite this, some researchers continued to show interest in the subject. In the late 1990`s agroforestry attracted attention and studies were initiated on this subject. These studies led to an analysis and description of examples of traditional national agroforestry. Furthermore, the potential of national agroforestry production was put into evidence. Nowadays the implementation of social forestry projects continues and new research on agroforestry is being initiated. Today the number of individuals doing research on social forestry and agroforestry is quite considerable. In addition, social forestry and agroforestry are being taught in forestry faculties at undergraduate as well as graduate levels. Considering that social forestry in Turkey has developed only in the last 20 years, the important achievements that have been made and that are continuing are quite formidable in view of the many obstacles that have been met.

Akademik Acil T?p Olgu Sunumlar? Dergisi (AKATOS) , 2012,
Abstract: Disorders of the epiploic appendages are rare, usually affecting the middle age group. Primary epiploic appendagitis is an inflammatory and ischemic condition that results from torsion, spontaneous venous thrombosis, or inflammation of one of the hundreds of appendices epiploicae. In this article, we present a patient with primary epiploic appendagitis diagnosed by ultrasonography and computed tomography scan, and discuss the important clinical and radiological manifestations of this disease.
The Use of Ozone Gas for Medical Purposes
Mehmet Ozler,Sukru Oter,Ahmet Korkmaz
TAF Preventive Medicine Bulletin , 2009,
Abstract: Ozone (O3) is a colorless and sharp odorous natural gas that is composed of three oxygen atoms. Ozone, that is toxic and pollutant near earth s surface, it is vital in stratosphere by absorbing harmful ultraviolet radiation. Although initial years after being discovered it was used for disinfection, studies conducted have come into question for medical usage of ozone. Ozone therapy may be summarized as administering a particular amount of ozone/oxygen mixture into body cavities or circulation. Ozone/oxygen gas mixture can be applied via intravenous, intramuscular, intraarticular, intrapleural, intrarectal and intradiscal as well as topically. Most frequent ozone administration is major autohemotherapy. In this method, 50-270 ml blood of patient is taken into a special bottle and after contacting with ozone/oxygen mixture for a particular duration, it is re-infused. During this period, hydrogen peroxide produced by oxidative stress and lipid oxidations mediates the biological effects of ozone therapy by acting as a second messenger. Repetition of ozone administration creates resistance against oxidative stress via inducing antioxidative system. Moreover, levels of several cytokine are increased depending on the fatty acid oxidation in cell membranes. Ozone therapy is used as an adjuvant therapeutic modality in the pathophysiological conditions where severe inflammatory processes and immune activation are involved. Some of the examples are wound healing, age-dependent macular degeneration, ischemic and infectious disorders. [TAF Prev Med Bull. 2009; 8(1): 69-74]

Case Reports in Orthopedics , 2014, DOI: 10.1155/2014/252973
Abstract: Introduction. Paraplegia and kyphotic deformity are two major disease-related problems of spinal tuberculosis, especially in the early age disease. In this study a 2-year-old boy who underwent surgical decompression, correction, and 360° instrumented fusion via simultaneous anterior-posterior technique for Pott’s disease was reported. Case Report. A 2-year-and-9-month-old boy presented with severe back pain and paraparesis of one-month duration. Thoracic magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated destruction with a large paraspinal abscess involving T5-T6-T7 levels, compressing the spinal cord. The paraspinal abscess drained and three-level corpectomy was performed at T5-6-7 with transthoracic approach. Anterior instrumentation and fusion was performed with structural 1 autogenous fibula and rib graft using screw-rod system. In prone position pedicle screws were inserted at T4 and T8 levels and rods were placed. Six months after surgery, there was no weakness or paraparesis and no correction loss at the end of follow-up period. Discussion. In cases of vertebral osteomyelitis with severe anterior column destruction in the very early child ages the use of anterior structural grafts and instrumentation in combination with posterior instrumentation is safe and effective in maintenance of the correction achieved and allows efficient stabilization and early mobilization. 1. Introduction Spinal tuberculosis, the most common pattern of extra pulmonary tuberculosis, also has increased rapidly around the world in recent years, especially in the undeveloped and developing countries [1]. Paraplegia and kyphotic deformity development are two major disease-related problems. Medical and surgical decompression (antituberculous treatment and debridement) and early reconstruction of spinal stability plays an important role in the surgical management of spinal tuberculosis [2, 3]. The reported techniques of surgical treatment range from anterior debridement and interbody fusion [4, 5] and debridement and internal fixation from the posterior approach [6] to combined single-stage or two-stage posterior instrumentation with anterior debridement and bone grafting [7–14]. Recently decompression, fusion, and instrumentation by simultaneous posterior-anterior-posterior surgery are recommended for effective kyphosis correction and early ambulation [15]. In this study a 2-year-old boy who suffered from severe paraparesia and back pain was reported. The aim of this case report is to verify the importance of early reconstruction of spinal stability and the technique of 360° fusion via

Journal of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery , 2013, DOI: 10.1186/1916-0216-42-13
Abstract: The experiment was performed on 30 female Wistar albino rats. Thirty animals were divided into three groups of 10 animals each. 1% terbinafine solution was administered to the first group (group T). The second group (group G) was administered 40 mg/ml gentamicin solution (ototoxic control). The third group (group S) was administered saline solution (negative control). Baseline DPOAE measurements and ABR testing from the left ears were obtained from the animals in all groups under general anesthesia. Ear solutions were applied in the middle ear intratympanically with a dental needle. Treatment was initiated after baseline measurements and repeated once every two days for fifteen days.Pre and post-treatment DPOAE responses for all tested frequencies of group T and Group S showed no statistically significant difference. However, the group G demonstrated a significant change in ABR thresholds and DPOAE responses.Terbinafine solution is a broad spectrum antifungal agent effective in the treatment of otomycosis. The present study demonstrated that its direct administration in the middle ear of rats does not affect inner ear function as measured by ABR and DPOAE responses.Otomycosis is defined as an infection of the external ear canal with fungal agents. This includes not only the external ear canal but also open mastoid cavities and the middle ear [1]. The most common etiological agents are Candida and Aspergillus [2-4]. Infection is mainly characterized by pruritus, otalgia, tinnitus and hearing loss [1,4]. The most important point for the treatment of the disease is cleansing and drying of the external ear canal, identification and treatment of any predisposing factors and application of topical antifungal agents [5,6].Terbinafine, which is from the allylamine group, is used as an antifungal agent. There are oral and topical formulations to treat superficial fungal infections. Although terbinafine is frequently used in the treatment of dermatophyte infections, it’s in v

World Journal of Gastroenterology , 2013, DOI: 10.3748/wjg.v19.i1.122
Abstract: Acute appendicitis, which requires immediate surgical intervention, is an important diagnosis in patients with acute abdomen. However, developmental abnormalities may interfere with the preoperative diagnosis and surgical treatment in some cases. Agenesis and atresia of the cecal vermiform appendix is an extremely rare clinical diagnosis. In addition, preoperative diagnosis may be difficult in some cases. Thus, diagnosis of the congenital absence of the vermiform appendix requires a thorough exploration of the retrocecal and ileocecal regions. A 59-year-old male was admitted from the emergency services with right lower abdominal pain. A celiotomy was performed with the suspicion of acute appendicitis. However, an atresia of the vermiform appendix was observed. The patient’s appendix was thus removed. Pathological examination confirmed suppurative appendicitis. This case underlines the importance of the clinical entity for surgeons who may deal with a similar case.

Indian Pacing and Electrophysiology Journal , 2009,
Abstract: We aimed to investigate the effects of nebivolol and quinapril treatments on P-wave duration and dispersion in hypertensive patients. Hypertensive patients who were in sinus rhythm were assigned to the two treatment groups and received either 20 mg quinapril/day or 5 mg nebivolol/day. P-Wave dispersion (PWD) was measured at baseline and after four weeks of treatment and defined as the difference between the maximum (Pmax) and the minimum (Pmin) P-wave duration. The study group consisted of 54 patients (Mean age: 53 ± 9 years, 46% women) with 27 patients in each group. At 4-week follow up both treatment groups showed a significant reduction (p<0.001) in systolic (SBP) and diastolic blood pressure (DBP). Heart rate (HR) reduction was significant in patients receiving nebivolol (P=0.001). Both groups showed a similar (P=0.413 for PWD, p=0.651 for Pmax) but significant reduction in PWD (nebivolol: -16±14, P<0.0001 and quinapril: -13±11, P<0.0001) and Pmax (nebivolol: -10±11, P=0.001 and quinapril: -9±11, P=0.001). A 2 (Time) x 2 (Group) mixed-model repeated-measures analysis of variance revealed that the main effect of Time was significant for Pmax (P=0.002) and PWD (P=0.008) after controlling for changes in SBP, DBP and HR. However, the main effect of Group and Time x Group interaction was not significant for both variables (All p values >0.05). In conclusion, short-term treatment with nebivolol and quinapril produces a similar but significant reduction in Pmax and PWD in hypertensive patients. This effect is independent of blood pressure and heart rate changes.
