Vestibular-evoked myogenic potentials (VEMP), short-latency electromyographic responses elicited by acoustic stimuli, evaluate the function of vestibulocollic reflex and may give information about brainstem function. The aim of the present study is to evaluate the potential contribution of VEMP to the diagnosis of multiple sclerosis (MS). Fifty patients(More)
Atrophic rhinitis is a chronic inflammatory disease characterized by progressive atrophy of nasal mucosa. Cedecea davisae, a rare pathogen, is a new member of Enterobacteriaceae family. In this article, we report a patient with atrophic rhinitis whose culture test revealed Cedecea davisae. The patient was operated due to accompanying posterior ethmoid(More)
Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) provokes oxidative stress and ischemia, which affects the central nervous system. The degeneration of neurons in the brainstem due to periodic hypoxia can be evaluated by vestibular and audiologic tests. The objective of this study is to determine brainstem damage in severe OSAS patients with the help of vestibular(More)
Defects in mucosal healing after sinonasal surgery cause infection, scar formation causing obstruction, relapse of the disease within a shorter period and revision surgery. The present study aimed to create a functional ciliated epithelium using a stem cell and stem cell sheet of adipose tissue origin and to show such regeneration ultra-structurally on(More)
Teratomas which originate from two or three germ layers are the most common congenital tumors of the childhood and are usually observed in the sacrococcygeal region. The nasopharynx is a considerably rare localization. Nazopharyngeal tumors may lead to significant findings including apnea, respiratory distress and stridor in newborns. In this study, a(More)
The objective of this study was to investigate whether prophylactic central lymph node dissection (pCLND) facilitates postoperative thyroglobulin (Tg) follow-up in the patients with papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC). We also questioned whether radioactive iodine (RAI) remnant ablation provides any further advantage in this regard. The records of patients(More)
