Emrah Soylu, Ahmet Altan, Ahmet Ercan Sekerci, Nıhat Akbulut
2017 Case Reports in Dentistry  
Elongation of the styloid process is a rare condition. Only 4% of patients have clinical symptoms where elongated styloid process (ESP) occasionally irritates or disrupts adjacent anatomical structures, which is called Eagle syndrome. This present report was aimed at reporting an asymptomatic ESP with unusual width and length.

Qualifying Ontology-Based Visual Query Formulation [chapter]

Ahmet Soylu, Martin Giese
2015 Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing  
This paper elaborates on ontology-based end-user visual query formulation, particularly for users who otherwise cannot/do not desire to use formal textual query languages to retrieve data due to the lack of technical knowledge and skills. Then, it provides a set of quality attributes and features, primarily elicited via a series of industrial enduser workshops and user studies carried out in the course of an industrial EU project, to guide the design and development of successor visual query systems.

Ayşegül İdil SOYLU, Korhan SOYLU, Ramazan AYDIN, Fatih UZUNKAYA, Kerim ASLAN, Ahmet Veysel POLAT
2019 Turkish Journal of Medical Sciences  
A total of 404 female patients above 40 years of age who, within a 6-month period, had undergone thoracic computed tomography and mammography for various reasons were screened retrospectively at our clinic. Mammographies were assessed for BAC and thoracic CT investigations were assessed for CAC and AC. Patients included in the study were scored as 0 (none), 1 (mild), 2 (moderate), or 3 (severe) depending on the number and shape of CAC, AC, and BAC lesions observed.

Erektil disfonksiyonun değerlendirilmesinde hormonal incelemenin gerekliliği

Mehmet SARIER, Ahmet Soylu, Can Baydinç
2018 Süleyman Demirel Üniversitesi Tıp Fakültesi Dergisi  
Öz Amaç: Erektil Disfonksiyon nedeniyle başvuran hastada yapılacak ilk incelemede rutin hormonal değerlendirmenin yapılıp yapılmaması tartışmalıdır. Bu çalışmada kliniğimize başvuran ve hormonal inceleme yapılan hastalara bu incelemelerin katkısı araştırıldı. Yöntem ve Gereçler: Polikliniğimize erektil disfonksiyon nedeniyle başvuran ve hormonal değerlendirme düşünülen hastalarda FSH, LH, Prolaktin ve Testosteron seviyelerinden en az ikisine bakılarak incelemeler yapıldı. Hormonal bozukluk

Ayrıca bu değerlendirmeler sonucunda tedavide farklı bir uygulamanın yapılıp yapılmadığı tespit edildi. Bulgular: Ortalama yaşı 46,1 olan 356 hastanın 227'sine (%63.8) hormonal inceleme yapıldı. FSH yüksekliği % 9.5 (20/221), LH yüksekliği %7.1 (16/224), prolaktin yüksekliği %4.7 (10/211) ve testosteron düşüklüğü % 3.7 (7/191) hastada tespit edildi. FSH ve LH ile yaş arasında anlamlı pozitif korelasyon, prolaktin ile yaş arasında negatif korelasyon görülürken testesteron ile yaş arasında korelasyon tespit edilmedi. Prolaktin yüksekliği olan 10 hastanın 1 tanesi daha önceden hipofiz adenomu tanısı almış ve tedavi edilmekteydi. Diğer 9 hastada prolaktin değerleri normal sınırın 2 katını geçmediğinden endokrinoloji bilim dalı tarafından ek incelemeye gerek görülmedi. Testosteron düşüklüğü olan 7 hastadan libido azalması olan 2 tanesine testosteron replasmanı yapılırken diğer 5 tanesine gerek görülmedi ve tüm hastalara erektil disfonksiyona yönelik tedaviler uygulandı. Sonuçlar: Bu bulgular erektil disfonksiyon nedeniyle başvuran bir hastada yapılacak ilk incelemede hormonal incelemenin tedaviye ek katkısının çok olmayacağını göstermektedir. Hormonal incelemeler iyi bir anemnez ve fizik muayeneyi takiben sadece gerekli olgularda istenmelidir. Abstract Objectives: It is an issue of debate whether or not to perform hormonal testing as a first-line investigation in patients with erectile dysfunction. This study aimed to assess the contribution of hormonal testing to the diagnostic investigations of patients who present with erectile dysfunction. Methods: Investigations were performed in patients who applied to our andrology clinic due to erectile dysfunction and in whom hormonal causes were suspected, ÖZGÜN ARAŞTIRMA / ORIGINAL RESEARCH Med J SDU / SDÜ Tıp Fak Derg 2018:25(4):356-360

Bununla birlikte, iyi bilinen bu fenomene rağmen ilaca bağlı hiperprolaktinemi olgularının çoğu semptomsuzdur. Diğer taraftan, bir alfa adrenerjik reseptör blokeri olan tamsulosine bağlı hiperprolaktinemi şimdiye kadar bildirilmemiştir. Bu yazıda nörojenik mesane hastalığı için tamsulosin tedavisi başlandıktan sonra hiperprolaktinemi tesbit edilen multipl sklerozlu 39 yaşındaki bir kadın olguyu sunuyoruz. Anahtar Kelimeler: İlaca bağlı hiperprolaktinemi, Tamsulosin, Multipl sklerozis Öz Drug-induced hyperprolactinemia is one of the most common causes of non-physiologic hyperprolactinemia. In contrary to other anterior pituitary hormones, prolactin is not controlled via hypothalamic-pituitary negative feedback mechanism. Since prolactin secretion is inhibited mainly by dopamine, some drugs such as antipsychotics and prokinetics which block dopamine receptors may lead to hyperprolactinemia. Nevertheless, despite this well-known phenomenon, most of cases of drug-induced hyperprolactinemia are asymptomatic. On the other hand, hyperprolactinemia due to tamsulosin that is an alpha adrenergic receptor antagonist has not been reported yet. Herein, we present a 39-year-old woman with multiple sclerosis who developed hyperprolactinemia after starting treatment with tamsulosin for neurogenic bladder disease.

Navigating OWL 2 Ontologies Through Graph Projection [chapter]

Ahmet Soylu, Evgeny Kharlamov
2019 Communications in Computer and Information Science  
Ontologies are powerful, yet often complex, assets for representing, exchanging, and reasoning over data. Particularly, OWL 2 ontologies have been key for constructing semantic knowledge graphs. Ability to navigate ontologies is essential for supporting various knowledge engineering tasks such as querying and domain exploration. To this end, in this short paper, we describe an approach for projecting the nonhierarchical topology of an OWL 2 ontology into a graph. The approach has been

2017 European Journal of General Medicine  
Meckel-Gruber syndrome, which is firstly described by Friedrich Meckel and Georg B. Gruber, is an autosomal recessive disorder that is characterized triad of occipital encephalocele, bilateral renal dysplasia and polydactyly. Because of the genetic heterogeneity, multiple organs can be affected. The worldwide incidence varies from 1 in 13,250 to 1 in 140,000 live births. We have reported a male baby born at 37-week gestation, who has occipital encephalocele, polydactyly and cystic dysplasia of

Making Complex Ontologies End User Accessible via Ontology Projections [chapter]

Ahmet Soylu, Evgeny Kharlamov
2018 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Ontologies are a powerful mechanism to structure domains of interest. They have successfully been applied in medical domain, industry and other important areas. Despite the simplicity of ontological vocabularies that consist of classes and properties, ontologies can relate elements of the vocabulary with the help of axioms in a very non-trivial way. Thus, the relationship between classes and properties can become hardly accessible by end users thus affecting the practical value of ontologies.

Indeed, it is essential for end users to be able to navigate or browse through an ontology, to get a big picture of what classes there are and what they have in common in terms of other related classes and properties. This helps end users in effectively performing various knowledge engineering tasks such as querying and domain exploration. To this end, in this short paper, we describe an approach to project OWL 2 ontologies into graphs and show how to leverage this approach in practical systems for visual query formulation and faceted search that we tested in various scenarios.

Guillermo Vega-Gorgojo, Martin Giese, Simen Heggestøyl, Ahmet Soylu, Arild Waaler, Jaap Kamps
2016 PLoS ONE  
With the emergence of the Web of Data, there is a need of tools for searching and exploring the growing amount of semantic data. Unfortunately, such tools are scarce and typically require knowledge of SPARQL/RDF. We propose here PepeSearch, a portable tool for searching semantic datasets devised for mainstream users. PepeSearch offers a multiclass search form automatically constructed from a SPARQL endpoint. We have tested PepeSearch with 15 participants searching a Linked Open Data version of

Retrieval performance was encouragingly high and usability ratings were also very positive, thus suggesting that Pepe-Search is effective for searching semantic datasets by mainstream users. We also assessed its portability by configuring PepeSearch to query other SPARQL endpoints.

Yakup Alsancak, Hasan Sari, Ahmet Seyfeddin Gurbuz, Ahmet Lutfi Sertdemir, Alpay Aribas, Ahmet Soylu
2021 Cor et Vasa  
SOUHRN Cíl: CHA 2 DS 2 -VASc (srdeční selhání, hypertenze, věk > 75 let, diabetes mellitus, cévní mozková příhoda v anamnéze, cévní onemocnění, věkové rozmezí 65-74 let, pohlaví) a HAS-BLED (hypertenze, abnormální funkce ledvin/jater, cévní mozková příhoda, nestabilní INR, starší osoby, drogy/alkohol) jsou skórovací systémy, s jejichž pomocí lze hodnotit možnost vzniku cévní mozkové příhody a krvácení při fi brilaci síní. Cílem naší studie bylo posoudit vztah mezi implantovatelnými

Metody: Po kontrole údajů o pacientech starších 18 let, jimž byl v období 2014-2019, bez ohledu na důvod, implantován ICD a u nichž bylo zjištěno, že jejich kardiostimulátor byl alespoň dvakrát zkontrolován v půlročním intervalu, bylo do naší retrospektivní studie zařazeno celkem 398 pacientů. Skóre CHA 2 DS 2 -VASc a HAS-BLED byla vypočtena během implantace zařízení a při posledním kontrolním vyšetření. Výsledky: Léčba s použitím ICD se prováděla u 148 pacientů (vhodný výboj [n = 118] a nevhodný výboj [n = 30]); ICD nemělo implantováno 250 pacientů. Skóre CHA 2 DS 2 -VASc a HAS-BLED byla v obou skupinách podobná (p = 0,64, resp. p = 0,60). Skóre CHA 2 DS 2 -VASc a HAS-BLED byla při délce sledování s mediánem 5,5 roku u pacientů s vhodným a nevhodným výbojem podobná (p = 0,89, resp. p = 0,85). Podle multivariační regresní analýzy jsou nezávislými rizikovými faktory léčby pomocí ICD snížená ejekční frakce, použití jednodutinového ICD a dlouhodobý odstup od implantace (p < 0,05). Závěry: Hodnoty CHA 2 DS 2 -VASc a HAS-BLED nejsou spojeny s léčbou pomocí ICD. ABSTRACT Aim: The CHA 2 DS 2 -VASc (heart failure, hypertension, age >75, diabetes mellitus, stroke history, vascular disease, 65-74 age range, gender) and HAS-BLED (hypertension, abnormal renal/liver function, stroke, bleeding history, labile INR, elderly, drugs/alcohol) are scoring system for using to estimate stroke and bleeding development in cases with atrial fi brillation. We aim to evaluate the relationship between the implantable cardioverter defi brillator (ICD) therapies and CHA 2 DS 2 -VASc and HAS-BLED scores. Methods: 398 patients were included in this retrospective study after reviewing the data of the patients above the age of 18 who had ICD implantation for any reason between 2014-2019 and who were found to have at least two pacemaker check-ups with 6-month intervals. CHA 2 DS 2 -VASc and HAS-BLED scores were calculated during the device implantation and last control visit date. Results: 148 of the patients received ICD therapy (appropriate shock [n = 118] and in appropriate therapy [n = 30]) and 250 of them did not receive any therapy. It was observed that the CHA 2 DS 2 -VASc and HAS-BLED scores were similar in the groups receiving and not receiving therapy (respectively, p = 0.64 and p = 0.60). CHA 2 DS 2 -VASc and HAS-BLED scores were similar in patients with appropriate shock or not (respectively, p = 0.89 and p = 0.85) with median follow-up period 5.5 years. Multivariate regression analysis showed that reduced ejection fraction, presence of single-chamber ICD, lapsing of a long time after the implantation were independent risk factors for ICD device therapies (p < 0.05). Conclusions: CHA 2 DS 2 -VASc and HAS-BLED scores are not associated with device-based ICD therapies.
