OBJECTIVES The aims of the study were to determine: 1) how mucociliary activity in acute bacterial rhinosinusitis is affected; 2) how this activity is changed by therapy; 3) the effects of topical agents on mucociliary clearance, and 4) the most appropriate topical agent(s) to be used in the therapy of sinusitis. STUDY DESIGN Five groups of patients with(More)
One hundred and forty-seven adult recipients of the Nucleus 24 cochlear implant system, from 13 different European countries, were tested using neural response telemetry to measure the electrically evoked compound action potential (ECAP), according to a standardised postoperative measurement procedure. Recordings were obtained in 96% of these subjects with(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine and compare the therapeutic efficiency of ciprofloxacin hydrochloride and gentamicin sulfate in the treatment of chronic ear disease. DESIGN Prospective randomized study. SETTING Academic tertiary medical center. PATIENTS Consecutive referred sample of 44 patients with chronic suppurative otitis media randomized into two groups.(More)
The aim of this study was to determine histologic findings in the maxilaarysinus mucosa by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM), and ciliary activity within the nasal cavity by measuring the speed of mucociliary transport and after endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS). Thirty patients were enrolled. Thirty-eight antral(More)
PURPOSE Temporal bone fracture, which involves the otic capsule, can lead to complete loss of auditory and vestibular functions, whereas the patients without fractures may experience profound sensorineural hearing loss due to cochlear concussion. Cochlear implant is indicated in profound sensorineural hearing loss due to cochlear trauma but who still have(More)
OBJECTIVE Fascin is an actin-bundling protein found in cell membrane protrusions and increases cell motility. The expression of fascin in epithelial neoplasms has been described only recently. No data are available concerning the role of this protein in invasive cholesteatoma. Thus, we investigated the expression of fascin in cholesteatoma tissue and the(More)
Dear editor: Heimann and collaborators [2] report performance of primary vitrectomy with gas tamponade without the use of additional scleral buckling in a series of patients who had unusual, multiple or large breaks, vitreous hemorrhage, proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR) and bullous retinal detachment. It is known that scleral buckling might have some(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the importance of supratubal recess in cholesteatoma surgery by presenting the clinical presentation, imaging findings, and surgical treatment methods of 66 patients with cholesteatoma. We propose that the management of supratubal recess allows the opportunity for total removal of the cholesteatoma with the prevention of recurrence.(More)
This study has been performed between December 1990-March 1991 in the Microsurgery laboratory of the Marmara University Hospital. Twelve healthy albino guinea pigs were used as a study group while the control group consists of three animals. The potentials for cholesteatoma formation of the squamous epithelium, namely the squamous epithelium of the(More)
