Cervical Spine Involvement in Rheumatoid Arthritis: Case Report
Ali Aydeniz,?zlem Alt?nda?,SavaGürsoy
Turkish Journal of Rheumatology , 2009,
Abstract: Cervical spine involvement occurs in over half of the patients with rheumatoid arthritis. The destruction of the spine ranges from minimal subluxation to atlantoaxial dislocation and compression of the spinal cord and brainstem, and hence may result in sudden death. In this paper, we present a case of seronegative rheumatoid arthritis with cervical involvement, and we review cervical involvement in view of the related literature.
A Case with Anti TNF- α Induced Bullous Pemhigoid
?zlem Alt?nda?,Ali Aydeniz,SavaGürsoy
Turkish Journal of Rheumatology , 2010,
Abstract: Tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α) plays a crucial role in the development of autoimmune diseases, and anti-TNF-α agents are used in the treatment of this group of diseases. However, some adverse events such as various autoimmune diseases can occur with use of these agents. In this report, we present a female case who was diagnosed as bullous pemphigoid while receiving adalimumab for rheumatoid arthritis.

?zlem Alt?nda?,SavaGürsoy,Ahmet Mete
Türkiye Fiziksel Tip ve Rehabilitasyon Dergisi , 2009,
Abstract: Obstetric Brachial Plexus Palsy (OBPP) is one of the devastating complications of difficult or assisted deliveries. Brachial plexus palsy with upper root involvement most commonly affects the external rotators and abductors. Twenty percent of obstetrical brachial plexus palsies are bilateral and they represent a more severe condition. An eight-year-old girl patient with bilateral brachial plexus palsy was described and discussed in this report. Turk J Phys Med Rehab 2009;55:126-7.
Undifferentiated Connective Tissue Disease: A Case Report
Ali Aydeniz,?zlem Alt?nda?,SavaGürsoy
Romatizma , 2009,
Abstract: Undifferentiated connective tissue diseases (UCTD) are heterogeneous disorders characterized by a wide variety of signs and symptoms. Approximately 30% of cases of the disease will evolve to defined connective tissue disease; however, 70% will maintain an undifferentiated clinical course or go to complete remission.The most characteristic symptoms of UCTD present in the form of arthralgias, arthritis and Raynaud's phenomenon. The definite classification criteria to identify UCTD are not yet available. Although these conditions are generally benign, an evolution to connective tissue diseases may occur; therefore, a regular follow-up of the patients is strongly advised. We report a case that remained undifferentiated for seven years and responded well to preventive measures and disease-modifying antirheumatic drug therapy.
Effectiveness of Intraarticular Sodium Hyaluronate in Synchronous Treatment of Hip and Knee Osteoarthritis
Türkiye Fiziksel Tip ve Rehabilitasyon Dergisi , 2008,
Abstract: Objective: We aimed to evaluate results of synchronous intraarticular sodium hyaluronate therapy in patients who have both hip and knee osteoarthritis.Materials and Methods: Twenty-five patients (18 women, 7 men) with hip and knee osteoarthritis constituted the study group and 14 patients (9 women, 5 men) constituted the control group. In the treatment protocol, 2 ampules of sodium hyaluronate were injected into the hip joint using fluoroscopy guide in the operating room. After two weeks, the injection was performed in the affected knee joint. This protocol was repeated following a week without treatment. The clinical conditions of the groups before therapy and on the 30th and 60th days after therapy were evaluated by the Western Ontario and McMaster Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC) A, B, C indices and 15 m walking time.Results: There are significant differences between the two groups when WOMAC scores and the quantity of nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs administered were considered, but there was no difference between the groups concerning walking time. There are significant differences in all test parameters except for the WOMAC C index in group I before and after therapy.Conclusion: The treatment of hip and knee osteoarthritis synchronously with sodium hyaluronate injection provides considerable reduction of pain and increase in joint range of motion and function. Turk J Phys Med Rehab 2008;54:143-7.
Rehabilitation of Tendon Transfers for Radial Nerve Injury: A Report of Two Cases
Ali Aydeniz,Arif Türkmen,?zlem Alt?nda?,SavaGürsoy
Türkiye Fiziksel Tip ve Rehabilitasyon Dergisi , 2010,
Abstract: Extended delay in the treatment of radial nerve injuries might lead to permanent loss of motor end-plate function. In such cases tendon transfer is mandatory for regaining hand functions. The postoperativemanagement of tendon transfer is difficult and requires patient cooperation and close follow-up. Two case reports are presented to describe the postoperative course of tendon transfer for radial nerve palsy. Turk J Phys Med Rehab 2010;56:91-3.
Complex Regional Pain Syndrome Type 1 in Both Lower Extremities, Resistant to Treatment: A Case Report
?zlem Alt?nda?,Ali Aydeniz,SavaGürsoy,Türkan Harunlar Bukan
Romatizma , 2009,
Abstract: Complex regional pain syndrome type 1 (CRPS-1) is characterizedby pain, vasomotor and sudomotor changes and trophicdisturbances. It may develop as a result of trauma, especiallyextremity fractures and surgery. Although the pathogenesis ofCRPS-1 is not exactly clear, abnormal sympathetic nerve activitymay be a potential etiological factor. Occurrence of CRPS-1 in thelower extremity with bilateral involvement is a very rare condition.Calcitonin, bisphosphonates and analgesics can be used in themanagement of these cases. A case of bilateral lower extremityCRPS-1 with rebellious pain is described and discussed in thispaper. We suggest bilateral CRPS-1 may occur in the lowerextremity and pregabalin may be an effective and alternativetherapy in these patients.
Lupus-Like Syndrome During Anti TNF-Alpha Therapy: A Case Report
?zlem Alt?nda?,Ali Aydeniz,SavaGürsoy,Erman Ya??z
Romatizma , 2008,
Abstract: Anti TNF-α therapy is considered as an important progress in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis by slowing joint erosions and improving physical function. Patients treated with this therapy raised concerns for development of systemic autoimmune diseases such as systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Although new autoantibody formation is common with anti-TNF therapy, there are only rare reports of SLE, In this case report, we presented a 45-year-old woman who developed SLE under etanercept treatment. Etanercept induced lupus syndrome must be kept in mind in the presence of clinical findings suggestive of SLE in patients with rheumatoid arthritis.
Novitas-ROYAL , 2011,
Abstract: As the aims for learning foreign languages change in consequence of globalization, the need for teaching and learning native-like conventions of everyday speech gains importance. However, whether the textbooks used for language teaching provide such information is questionable. Learners’ pragmatic knowledge and competence is framed mostly by the information presented in the textbooks. As future foreign language teachers, trainees’ use of daily conventions is significant to foresee their tendency to use them in their future occupations. Thus, the current study aims to investigate one of the features of language competence by focusing on the politeness strategies when making requests. In the present study 68 freshmen ELT students were inquired about their politeness strategies. A questionnaire, designed as a discourse completion task, was given to 58 trainees to which they were asked to write an appropriate request to the given 12 situations. The rest of the trainees (10) completed the discourse orally on the same situations during an interview. Eight of the twelve situations were designed according to the Power (P), Social Distance (D), and Rank of Imposition (R) as described by Brown and Levinson (1987). The other four situations were designed to see the effects of contextual factors on users’ linguistic preferences. The research results indicate that although the majority of the participants use language forms, appropriately, these are very limited to the information provided in the textbooks and that there are similarities between oral and written responses. Moreover, the results indicate that the participants are not aware of the ways to reduce Face Threatening Acts.
The Critical Period Hypothesis Revisited: The Implications for Current Foreign Language Teaching to Young Learners
Esim Gürsoy
Journal of Language Teaching and Research , 2011, DOI: 10.4304/jltr.2.4.757-762
Abstract: Teaching foreign languages to young learners is gaining popularity all over the world and as a result the age for learning a second/foreign language is being reduced in many countries. However, the outcomes of early language teaching haven’t been thoroughly investigated and the question related to why we are teaching English at younger ages is not answered adequately. The SLA research has investigated the issue of age as an outcome of L1 acquisition research. The studies related to age and the ‘Critical Period Hypothesis’ (CPH) were mostly conducted in the second language environments and neglected the foreign language contexts. Moreover, the results of such studies, where adults versus children; and younger children versus older children are compared, have conflicting findings. Thus, the study aims to reconsider the ‘Critical Period Hypothesis’ by discussing significant considerations in the literature, such as neurolinguistic, cognitive and affective arguments and studies comparing children with adults. It also aims to shed some light on current foreign language teaching practices. In addition, the implications of the CPH to teaching English to young learners will be discussed.
