CONCLUSION Although we have shown that malleus handle and mucosal factors were important prognostic factors for hearing, we were unable to show the positive effect of the stapes superstructure on hearing results. The positive effect of the presence of the stapes superstructure on hearing results is closely related to the quality of the mucosa. OBJECTIVE(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to reveal the role of septoplasty in curing chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) in patients with significant septal deviation. METHODS This prospective study involved 26 patients with CRS and septal deviation. The patients were randomly divided into two groups according to the applied surgical procedures. In the first and(More)
PURPOSE The aims of this study were to investigate the prognostic impact of middle ear risk index on the postoperative hearing results in cases with type 2 ossiculoplasty; to compare the middle ear risk index results among primary, staged, and revision cases; and to compare the results of the prostheses used in ossicular reconstruction.

Unilateral vocal cord paralysis (VCP) affects the objective properties of voice by diminished neurologic control and degenerative changes in laryngeal tissue. The goal of this study was to compare the acoustic parameters of VCP patients with control volunteers using the software Praat. Acoustic analysis results of 18 unilateral VCP patients were compared(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to reveal the efficacy of the "cross-stealing" technique in the repair of nasal septal perforation. METHODS In a prospective clinical investigation, 10 patients with the complaints of crusting, bleeding, whistling, nasal obstruction, and pain and in whom septal perforation was detected underwent surgery by endonasal(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to reveal the efficacy of different nasal mucosal flap techniques in the repair of nasal septal perforation. PATIENTS AND METHODS Between April 2006 and May 2009 21 patients (12 males, 9 females; mean age 36.6+/-12.7 years; range 17 to 60 years) with the complaints of nasal obstruction, bleeding, crusting, whistling(More)
The aim of our study was to investigate the effect of the topical use of mitomycin C (MMC) intraoperatively in single dose and intra-postoperatively in two doses on the narrowing of antrostomy in maxillary rabbit sinus antrostomies created experimentally. And also to determine the local and systemic side effects of topical MMC. With this objective, 0.6(More)
CONCLUSION Long-term hearing gain results are good after prosthetic reconstruction of the stapes in the tympanosclerotic ear. The type of stapedectomy, whether partial or total, does not affect the result of the surgery very much. OBJECTIVES Comparative evaluation of the hearing results of total/partial stapedectomy technique and the prosthesis used(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the existence of Helicobacter pylori (HP) in patients with benign and malignant vocal fold pathologies. This was a prospective clinical study conducted at a tertiary-care academic medical center. Fifty consecutive patients who had undergone microlaryngoscopy between August 2007 and July 2009 were included in the(More)
OBJECTIVE/HYPOTHESIS The aim of this study was to determine the reliability and feasibility of modified splay graft technique in the surgical correction of internal nasal valve (INV) incompetence and nasal valve collapse. STUDY DESIGN Eleven patients operated with the diagnosis of INV incompetence were followed for 6 to 30 months after operation. (More)
