The mechanical properties of intact and traumatized epidural catheters
Ates, Y; Yucesoy, CA; Unlu, MA; Saygin, B; Akkas, N (Ovid Technologies (Wolters Kluwer Health), 2000-02-01)
Comparative data on the mechanical properties of epidural catheters used clinically are not available. We performed a controlled laboratory investigation to assess the mechanical performance of three different intact or tr...
Dietary selenium- and vitamin E-induced alterations in some rabbit tissues
Turan, B; Zaloglu, N; Koc, E; Saran, Y; Akkas, N (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 1997-09-01)
The present study was designed to investigate and compare the effects of dietary selenium (Se) and vitamin E on some physiological parameters and histological changes in liver, heart, and skin tissues, as well as the blood...

Effect of medication on biomechanical properties of rabbit bones: Heparin induced osteoporosis
Akkas, N; Yeni, YN; Turan, B; Delilbasi, E; Gunel, U (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 1997-11-01)
The aim of this controlled study is to investigate the effect of heparin on osteoporosis initiation and of calcitonin and tamoxifen on the progress of osteoporosis induced by heparin through biomechanical means and, thus, ...
Zinc-calcium interaction in heparin-induced osteoporotic rabbit plasma
Turan, B; Delilbasi, E; Sinav, B; Akkas, N (1996-01-01)
Female New Zealand white rabbits were subjected to heparin treatment to induce osteoporosis and to observe the effects of calcitonin and tamoxifen treatments on the initiation of osteoporosis, The aim of this study is to i...
GER, M; KARAMETE, BK; BEKSAC, MS; AKSEL, S (Elsevier BV, 1993-03-01)
Objective: To develop a probabilistic computer model to predict the preovulatory days of the menstrual cycle by given hormonal parameters such as follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), luteinizing hormone (LH), estradiol (E2)...
Effects of bond-coatings on plasma sprayed calciumphosphate coatings
Oktar, FN; Goller, G; Yetmez, M; Toykan, D (2003-01-01)
In this study the effects of bond-coatings on various calcium phosphate coatings were studied. From human teeth dentine (DFA) and enamel derived fluorapatite (EFA) plasma powders were sprayed on titanium with and without a...
Higher order approximate dynamic models for layered composites
Yalcin, Omer Fatih; Mengi, Yalcin; Turhan, Dogan (Elsevier BV, 2007-05-01)
Based on a higher order dynamic approximate theory developed in the present study for anisotropic elastic plates, two dynamic models, discrete and continuum models (DM and CM), are proposed for layered composites. Of the t...
