Congenital vomer agenesis is a very rare condition. Usually, it is discovered incidentally. Nasal and otologic diseases accompany the cases. In this article, we report two cases of isolated congenital vomer agenesis who were admitted to our clinic with complaint of nasal obstruction. On endoscopic examination, deviated septum and inferior turbinate(More)
The most important limitations to endoscopic procedures in the ventricular system of the brain are due to the constraint of working inside a fluid. The evacuation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) from the ventricles is performed often in microsurgical interventions using a surgical microscope. This study aimed at studying the evacuation of CSF during(More)
Air embolism is known to be a complicating factor in several clinical settings, including thoracic, cardiovascular, and neurosurgical operations; central line placement; and penetrating thoracic and cranial trauma. There are, however, only few case descriptions for cardiopulmonary resuscitation massive cerebral air embolism, and the frequency of this(More)
Migraine is the most common headache in childhood, and there are some reports that suggest the relationship between migraine and right-to-left shunt. The aim of this study was to evaluate the frequency of right-to-left shunt in children with migraine with aura and compare it with children with migraine without aura, and in healthy children. In a(More)
A 41-year-old woman was admitted to our institution with a slowly progressing, severe headache for 2 years. She had no neurological deficits on physical examination, and her laboratory findings were normal. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed dural thickening, a dural-based mass in the right temporal lobe, and minimal herniation in the occipitoparietal(More)
OBJECTIVES This study aims to discuss the efficacy of the surgical method performed in patients with choanal polyp in the light of the literature. PATIENTS AND METHODS The study included 76 patients (42 males, 34 females; mean age 25.36 years; range 7 to 73 years) diagnosed with choanal polyp in the sinonasal region between January 2005 and December 2013(More)
Visceral artery aneurysms and visceral artery pseudoaneurysms frequently present as life-threatening emergencies. Hepatic artery pseudoaneurysm (HAP) is a very rare disease but in cases of complication, there is a very high mortality. The most common cause of HAP is iatrogenic trauma such as liver biopsy, transhepatic biliary drainage and cholecystectomy.(More)
BACKGROUND Intracranial lesions exhibit clear contrast enhancement in T1-weighted imaging, but the mechanism whereby contrast-enhanced susceptibility-weighted imaging (CE-SWI) generates signals remains unclear. Contrast enhancement patterns cannot be reliably predicted. PURPOSE To explore the mechanism of CE-SWI contrast enhancement. MATERIAL AND(More)
