Interesting in living liver donor transplantation have greatly increased because of inadequacy of cadaveric organs and the inability to supply the growing need for cadaveric transplantation. Surgical procedures applied to living liver donors do not only physically demand organs, but can also cause psychological burden. It has been reported that melatonin had antioxidant, antinociceptive, hypnotic, anticonvulsant, neuroprotective, anxiolytic, sedative and analgesic properties. It was shown to administration of exogenous melatonin has been increase sedation and decrease anxiety in the preoperative period compared to placebo.
The aim of this study; To investigate preoperative and postoperative anxiety levels of CKV and to exam the relationship between anxiety levels and endogenous melatonin levels.
Interesting in living liver donor (LLD) transplantation have greatly increased because of inadequacy of cadaveric organs and the inability to supply the growing need for cadaveric transplantation. Surgical procedures applied to LLD do not only physically demand organs, but can also cause psychological burden. Preoperative anxiety is seen in 60-80% of patients scheduled for surgery. It has been reported that melatonin had antioxidant, antinociceptive, hypnotic, anticonvulsant, neuroprotective, anxiolytic, sedative and analgesic properties. It was shown to administration of exogenous melatonin has been increase sedation and decrease anxiety in the preoperative period compared to placebo.
The aim of this study; To investigate preoperative and postoperative anxiety levels of LLD and to exam the relationship between anxiety levels and endogenous melatonin levels.
This prospective clinical study will perform at Inonu University Liver Transplant Institute. Anxiety of the patients included in the study will be measure with Spielberger State Anxiety Scale Scale (STAI FORM TX-1) in preoperative and postoperative period. It was designed to assess levels of state anxiety and traint anxiety, through 40 items scored by a likert-scale. Range of scores for each subtest is 20-80, the higher score indicating greater anxiety. A cut point of 39-40 has been suggested to detect clinically significant symptoms for the S‐Anxiety scale. Patients without premedication will admit to the operating room. Before induction of anesthesia, the vascular access will perform and 3 mL of blood sample will take to check for preoperative melatonin level. Standard general anesthesia will perform to all donors. At the end of surgery, the patients will take to intensive care unit. After 24 hours, blood samples will take for post-melatonin. Plasma melatonin concentrations will measure using High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) method in Inonu University Faculty of Pharmacy Analytical Chemistry Department research laboratory.

Many people with MS report sleep disturbances. However, objective data on sleep quality in MS, such as those obtained using actigraphy, remain scant, as do data about optimal therapeutic m...
Melatonin is well known for its role in the sleep-wake cycle and is synthesised in response to low light levels from the pineal gland. In our previous study it was found that serum melaton...
The purpose of this study is to determine if replacing melatonin function with a melatonin agonist (ramelteon) in individuals that lack endogenous melatonin production (tetraplegia) helps ...
Melatonin is well known for its role in the sleep-wake cycle but it is less well known as an effective antioxidant. It has been reported to be synthesised in the placenta and may have both...
Pre-clinical and clinical studies have demonstrated that melatonin has cardio-protection effects. Melatonin has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antihypertensive, antithrombotic and antilip...
We assessed the effects of postharvest exogenous melatonin (50,100 and 150 µmol L) on the senescence and quality of sweet cherries during storage at 0 ± 0.5 °C. Melatonin treatment decrea...
Melatonin was discovered in 1958 by Aaron Lerner; its name comes from the ability of melatonin to change the shape of amphibian melanophores from stellate to roundish. Starting from the 80s, the role ...
Liver transplantation (LT) for patients with propionic acidaemia (PA) is an emerging therapeutic option.
The combination of two-stage total hepatectomy and partial liver transplantation (LT) for secondary unresectable liver-only malignancies is producing a great quantity of literature. In the first stage...
Alcohol-associated liver disease (ALD) has become the commonest indication for liver transplantation (LT) in Western countries. For example, recent EASL guidelines indicate that about 40% of patients ...
A biogenic amine that is found in animals and plants. In mammals, melatonin is produced by the PINEAL GLAND. Its secretion increases in darkness and decreases during exposure to light. Melatonin is implicated in the regulation of SLEEP, mood, and REPRODUCTION. Melatonin is also an effective antioxidant.
A family of G-protein-coupled receptors that are specific for and mediate the effects of MELATONIN. Activation of melatonin receptors has been associated with decreased intracellular CYCLIC AMP and increased hydrolysis of PHOSPHOINOSITIDES.
Final stage of a liver disease when the liver failure is irreversible and LIVER TRANSPLANTATION is needed.
The transference of a part of or an entire liver from one human or animal to another.
A melatonin receptor subtype primarily found expressed in the BRAIN and RETINA.
Hepatology is the study of liver, gallbladder, biliary tree, and pancreas, and diseases associated with them. This includes viral hepatitis, alcohol damage, cirrhosis and cancer. As modern lifestyles change, with alcoholism and cancer becoming more promi...
Organ transplantation is the moving of an organ from one body to another or from a donor site to another location on the patient's own body, for the purpose of replacing the recipient's damaged or absent organ. The emerging field of regenerative ...
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
