Two common MTHFR gene polymorphisms (C677T and A1298C) have been implicated in the etiology of nonsyndromic cleft lip/palate (nsCL/P). To investigate the genotype association among nsCL/P in the Turkish population, 56 case-parent trios were recruited into the study. Genotype frequencies were compared to two groups of controls from the same population. A(More)
Ankaferd blood stopper (ABS) (Ankaferd İlaç Kozmetik A.Ş., Turkey) is a medicinal plant extract, which is used in Turkish traditional medicine as a haemostatic agent. The aim of this study was to investigate the haemostatic effect of ABS in preventing microvascular leakage on an anastomosis site and to look into its long-term impact on vascular tissue.(More)
Objective: Application of distraction is an alternative to bone graft or flap operations for repairing bone defects. Bone can be extended in width and length without using a new donor area. Operation time is shortened and failures are reduced without any concern about graft or flap loss. However, there are no distraction methods known for generating new(More)
It is almost impossible to achieve good results by the use of conventional Z-plasties on old burn contractures since necrosis of the transposed flap can occur. We have tried to raise the Z-plasty flaps as fasciocutaneous flaps to find out whether better results can be achieved. One hundred sixteen Z-plasties have been carried out on old burn contractures in(More)
After the primary repair of cleft palate, surgeons are frequently confronted with a short soft palate and a wide velopharyngeal space, both of which are known to diminish the quality of speech. We introduce a new modification of the primary repair of cleft palate that lengthens the soft palate and helps to reduce the volume of the velopharyngeal space. Ten(More)
BACKGROUND The effect of liposuction on the perforators of the lower abdominal wall has been investigated in several studies. There are controversial results in the literature that have primarily demonstrated the number and patency of the perforators. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of liposuction on the perfusion of perforator-based(More)
Many studies have been carried out to assess growth restriction of the craniofacial complex as a result of suture manipulation. Many years ago, periosteal stapling of the immature temporozygomatic suture was found to arrest growth and to cause facial deformity on the treated side. This experiment has been repeated with rigid plates on young rabbits of two(More)
INTRODUCTION Free tissue transfers are more often performed in the elderly with the increase in geriatric patient population. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of advanced age in reconstructive microsurgery procedures and analyze the association of other variables with complications and surgical success.
