At 0, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64 and 72 hours following injection, the liver, kidney, brain and small intestine tissues of rats were used to determine G6PD activity; on the other hand only liver and kidney tissues were used to determine MDH activity. Enzyme activities were measured spectrophotometrically. DNOC did not cause important changes in the G6PD activity in both liver and kidney tissues (p>0.05). It caused significant changes in brain and small intestine. In addition, it led to a decrease in MDH activity in both liver and kidney in various hours (p<0.05).]]> 2008-05-01 Uludag Journal of Medicine 2 34 063 2008-05-01 059 Original Article <![CDATA[Comparing the Effects of Propofol and Dexmedetomidine Sedation on Intraocular Pressure]]> http://www.utf.dergisi.org/text.php3?id=43 -1 iv as a loading dose and continued to receive 50-100 mg kg -1 dk -1 iv infusion at 10 min, as Ramsay sedation score were ensured to be 3-4. Group D (n=30) received dexmedetomidine 1 mg kg -1 hr -1 iv as a loading dose at 10 min, followed by a continuous 0.2-0.7 mg kg -1 hr -1 infusion while Ramsay Sedation Score were also ensured to be 3-4. Intraocular pressure of the patients were measured with “Tonopen XL applanation tonometer” before the sedative agent (control measurement), after the loading dose, at 15 th , 30 th minute of operation and at the end of the operation. Propofol decreased intraocular pressure by 18.6% after the loading dose, 17.8% at the 15 th minute, 21.7% at the 30 th minute and 13.3% at the end of the operation. Dexmedetomidine decreased intraocular pressure by 34.1% after the loading dose, 36.4% at the 15 th minute, 42.1% at the 30 th minute and 40.1% at the end of the operation. When we compared two groups; the decrease in intraocular pressure was significantly different (p<0.05). Vomiting, nausea, allergic reaction, hypotension, bradycardy and apnea were not observed in any patient. Propofol and dexmedetomidine can safely be used in ophthalmic surgery as a sedative agent. Dexmedetomidine can be preferred as the first alternative as it has similar haemodynamic effects and more significantly reduces intraocular pressure.]]> 2008-05-01 Uludag Journal of Medicine 2 34 070 2008-05-01 065 Original Article <![CDATA[Perinatal Outcomes of Pregnant Women with Preterm Premature Rupture of Membranes in Our Clinic]]> http://www.utf.dergisi.org/text.php3?id=44 2008-05-01 Uludag Journal of Medicine 2 34 077 2008-05-01 071 Original Article <![CDATA[Isolated Renal Hydatid Cyst Presenting As a Liver Lesion]]> http://www.utf.dergisi.org/text.php3?id=45 2008-05-01 Uludag Journal of Medicine 2 34 081 2008-05-01 079 Case Report <![CDATA[Chromogranin A in Heart Failure]]> http://www.utf.dergisi.org/text.php3?id=46 2008-05-01 Uludag Journal of Medicine 2 34 086 2008-05-01 083 Review
