The prevalence and rank of order of 4 otologic complaints in 200 temporomandibular disorder (TMD) patients, as well as the relationship between the complaints and TMD subgroups, were investigated and compared with an asymptomatic control group. No subjective otologic complaints were reported by 45 (22.5%) TMD patients; the remaining 155 (77.5%) patients had at least 1 otologic complaint. Otalgia, tinnitus, vertigo, and hearing loss were reported by 63.6%, 59.1%, 50%, and 36.4%, respectively, of the subjects with myofascial pain and dysfunction; by 46.1%, 44.2%, 32.5%, and 22% of the patients with internal derangement; and by 62.5%, 45.8%, 41.6%, and 20.8% of the patients with both myofascial pain and dysfunction and internal derangement. However, the incidence of otalgia (8%), tinnitus (26%), vertigo (14%), and hearing loss (14%) was found to be lower for the control group. Statistically, the control group had fewer otologic complaints. Patients in the TMD groups had high incidences of otologic complaints compared with the control subjects without TMD signs or symptoms. Aural symptoms in patients with internal derangement or myofascial pain and dysfunction, or their combination, were nonspecific.

Objectives: To identify the factors that affect SF-36 mental component summary (MCS) in patients with adult spinal deformity (ASD) at the time of presentation, and to analyse the effect of SF-36 MCS on clinical outcomes in surgically treated patients. Methods: Prospectively collected data from a multicentric ASD database was analysed for baseline parameters. Then, the same database for surgically treated patients with a minimum of 1-year follow-up was analysed to see the effect of baseline SF-36 MCS on t...

This study investigated the immunohistochemical staining characteristics of glutathione-S-transferase alpha, pi, mu, theta and p53 in non-small cell lung carcinoma and normal lung tissue from 50 patients. The relationships between expressions of the Glutathione-S-transferase isoenzymes and some clinicopathological features were also examined. Expression of glutathione-S-transferase pi, mu, alpha, theta and p53 was assessed by immunohistochemistry for primary lung carcinomas of 50 patients from the Sanitariu...
Social support, locus of control, and depressive symptoms in hemodialysis patients
Gençöz, Tülin (Wiley, 2006-06-01)
This study aimed to reveal how social support and psychological well-being association might differ with locus of control orientation for chronically ill patients receiving a restrictive and unpleasant medical treatment (i.e., hemodialysis). Data were collected from 104 hemodialysis patients. After controlling for the variance accounted for by gender and duration of dialysis, for patients with internal locus of control, lack of "perceived social support" was found to be associated with depressive symptoms. ...
