Abstract: Objectives Although development of new treatment modalities limited digoxin usage, digoxin intoxication is still an important issue which could be easily overlooked. In this report we analyzed a case series definitively diagnosed as digoxin intoxication in the modern era. Methods We analyzed 71 patients hospitalized with digoxin intoxication confirmed by history, complaints, clinical and electrocardiograph (ECG) findings, and serum digoxin levels > 2.0 ng/mL, during a five year period. The demographic and clinical data, indications for digoxin use, digoxin dosage, concurrent medications, laboratory data, hospital monitoring, and ECG findings were obtained from all patients. Results Thirty-eight of 71 patients (53.5%) had symptoms of heart failure during admission or later. Sixty-four percent of patients were older than 75 years. The percentage of females was 67%. Atrial fibrillation, hypertension and gastrointestinal complaints were more frequent in the females (64% in females, 30% in males, P = 0.007; 81% in female, 52% in males, P = 0.01; 50% in female, 17.3% in males, P = 0.008, respectively). The mortality rate during the hospital course was 7%. Conclusion This report demonstrated the reduced mortality rates in patients with digoxin intoxication over the study period. Gastrointestinal complaints are the most common symptoms in this population.
Radiation associated coronary occlusion: Overlooked as trastuzumab-induced cardiomyopathy  [PDF]
Ugur Turk, Veysel Yavuz, Nurullah Cetin
Open Journal of Internal Medicine (OJIM) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ojim.2013.31001
Abstract: Trastuzumab is an agent used for receptor-positive breast cancer. Up to a third of patients treated with trastuzumab might develop cardiomyopathy. Many patients with breast cancer have taken pre- or co-administration of mediastinal radiotherapy. Both of treatment modalities have toxic effects on myocardium. It may result with diagnostic confusion between radiation-induced CAD (riCAD) and trastuzumab cardiomyopathy in the case with dilated cardiomyopathy. TTE may offer clues of differential diagnosis.
Giant saccular aneurysm of the left main coronary artery
Esref Tuncer,Ugur Onsel Turk,Emin Alioglu
老年心脏病学杂志(英文版) , 2013,
Abstract: Coronary aneurysms represent anomalies identified in 0.15%–4.9% of patients undergoing coronary angiography. At present, there is no uniform definition of this pathology. Aneurysms of the left main coronary artery (LMCA) are extremely uncommon, with an incidence of 0.1%. It has been demonstrated that atherosclerosis is the main cause of these anomalies in adults, and Kawasaki disease in children and adolescents. Other causes include connective tissue disorders, trauma, vasculitis, congenital, mycotic, and idiopathic. These dilated sections of the coronary artery are not benign pathology because they are subject to spasm, thrombosis, and subsequent distal embolism, spontaneous dissection and rupture. Treatment options include anticoagulation, custom-made covered stents, reconstruction, resection, and exclusion with bypass. Our report on an old case illustrates the giant saccular LMCA aneurysm leading to myocardial ischemia due to coronary steal phenomenon.

Abstract: The present case represents successful percutaneous treatment with septal ablation to patient with MVOHC associated with systolic anterior motion of the mitral valve and obstruction at both the mid-ventricular and outflow levels.Alcohol septal ablation has been proposed as less invasive alternatives to surgery in patients with MVOHC.Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HC) is a hereditary myocardial disorder, caused by mutations of sarcomeric proteins [1]. In roughly 25% of cases of HC there is associated obstruction to left ventricular (LV) outflow [1]. Obstruction can occur at several locations within the ventricle, depending on the distribution of hypertrophy, including a) the mitral valve level in association with systolic anterior motion (SAM) of the mitral valve; b) the mid-ventricle; or c) within the cardiac apex [1].In about 5% of patients a mid-ventricular obstruction (MVO) can be observed [2]. These patients are often symptomatic from hemodynamic causes and are also prone to symptomatic and even lethal ventricular arrhythmias. MVO may be associated with hypertrophy of the papillary muscle(s) and apical LV aneurysm. MVO usually presents as local obstruction but can be associated with SAM and obstruction at both the mid-cavitary and outflow levels [1].During the past 10 years, atrio-ventricular sequential pacing and alcohol septal ablation have been proposed as less invasive alternatives to surgery for patients who fail to respond to pharmacologic therapy [3,4]. However, atrio-ventricular sequential pacing is not currently thought to be dramatically beneficial [5,6]. We report on percutaneous septal ablation in a patient with left mid-ventricular obstructive hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (MVOHC) associated with SAM of the mitral valve and obstruction at both the mid-ventricular and outflow levels, which seems to be an alternative therapy in these patients.A 34-year-old man with HC (primarily diagnosed 6 years ago) was referred to our clinic with the complaints of palp

Rectus Sheath Hematoma Mimicking Acute Abdominal Pain
Huseyin Narci,Emin Turk,Murat Ugur,Erdal Karagulle
Cukurova Medical Journal , 2012,
Abstract: Abdominal sheat hematoma is a rare cause of acute abdominal disorders and may be misdiagnosed from other causes of abdominal pain. Early diagnosis is mandatory in order to avoid morbidity or unnecessary surgery. We describe a case of an 55-year-old men receiving anticoagulants who presented with typical clinical manifestations of acute surgical abdomen. A computed tomography scans demonstrated a right rectus sheath hematoma. The patient was treated conservatively with success. It is important to recognize this entity of rectus sheath hematoma among patients complaining of acute abdominal pain. [Cukurova Med J 2012; 37(4.000): 243-246]

Thrombosis Journal , 2009, DOI: 10.1186/1477-9560-7-1
Abstract: Essential thrombocythemia (ET) is a clonal disorder of unknown etiology involving a multipotent hematopoietic progenitor cell and is manifested clinically by the overproduction of platelets in the absence of a definable cause [1]. In 2008, the World Health Organization accepted the presence of the JAK2V617F mutation as a new diagnostic criterion for myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs) like polycythemia vera (PV), essential thrombocythemia (ET) and primary myelofibrosis (PMF) [2]. Platelets in this disorder also tend to be dysfunctional, in addition to being elevated in number [3]. The disease is associated with an elevated risk of thrombosis, hemorrhage, and vasomotor symptoms. Thrombotic events are not common but are usually deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary emboli [4,5]. Coronary artery involvement is uncommon. We present a case of coronary thrombus involving the right coronary artery in a patient with ET.A 68-year-old woman was admitted to our institution because of severe and sudden-onset chest pain. She underwent coronary angiography a year before which revealed a normal right coronary artery (RCA) with nonsignificant atherosclerotic lesions involving the other remaining coronary arteries. Her past medical history was significant for high platelet counts with a nonrevealing workup for myeloproliferative disease, and diabetes which was controlled medically. The patient's blood pressure on presentation was 135/70 mmHg with a heart rate of 70 beats/minute. Physical examination revealed splenomegaly without any other significant pathological findings. Electrocardiography showed regular sinus rhythm with ST segment depression in the inferior derivations. The patient was diagnosed as having acute coronary syndrome (ACS). She was transported immediately to the catheterization laboratory. Coronary angiography, performed via the right femoral artery, showed subtotal occlusion and thrombus-like filling defect in the mid portion of the RCA (Figure 1). The left circumfl
Volatility Spillover from Oil to Food and Agricultural Raw Material Markets  [PDF]

Modern Economy (ME) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/me.2011.22011
Abstract: The upward movement in oil and food prices in the 2000s has attracted interest in the information transmission mechanism between the two markets. This paper investigates the volatility spillover between oil, food consumption item, and agricultural raw material price indexes for the period January 1980 to April 2008. The results of the Cheung-Ng procedure show that variation in oil prices does not Granger cause the variance in food and agricultural raw material prices. Since there is no volatility spillover from oil markets to food and agricultural raw material markets, investors can benefit from risk diversification. However, there is bi-directional spillover between agricultural raw material and food markets.
