BACKGROUND Some types of headaches with sinonasal origin may be present in the absence of inflammation and infection. The contact points between the lateral nasal wall and the septum could be the cause of triggering and sustained pain via trigeminovascular system. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate the feasibility and effectiveness of(More)
Hydroxycitric acid (HCA) is derived primarily from the Garcinia plant and is widely used for its anti-inflammatory effects. Multiple sclerosis can cause an inflammatory demyelination and axonal damage. In this study, to validate the hypothesis that HCA exhibits therapeutic effects on multiple sclerosis, we established female C57BL/6 mouse models of multiple(More)
UNLABELLED BACKGROUND Sinusitis is an inflammation of the paranasal sinuses that can be caused by anatomic variations of the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses. In this study we aimed to find the relationship between sinusitis and septal deviation (SeD) and concha bullosa. METHODS Two trained resident of ENT evaluated sinus CT scans of 463 cases(More)
Assessment of nasal airway is helpful in understanding nasal breathing function. Acoustic rhinometry is one of the most commonly-used objective measurements of nasal airway. This test has the ability to measure the volume and the cross-sectional area of the nose in different distances. It also determines the site of minimal cross-sectional area. These(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the risk of sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) and the relationship between SNHL and radiation dose to the cochlea and frequency range of hearing loss in patients with head and neck cancer. Pure tone audiometry at 250-12,000 Hz was performed on 29 patients diagnosed with head and neck tumours who were treated with(More)
Neuroendocrine carcinoma is a type of neuroendocrine system neoplasm that occurs in organisms in which amine precursor uptake and decarboxylation (APUD) cells are uncommon. In the human body, the most common sites of neuroendocrine carcinoma are the gastrointestinal tract and the lungs. From a histologic standpoint, these tumors are identified by their(More)
Rhino-orbital-cerebral zygomycosis afflicts primarily diabetics and immunocompromised individual, but can also occur in normal hosts rarely. We here presented an interesting case of facial nerve palsy and multiple cold abscesses of neck due to rhino-orbital-cerebral zygomycosis in an otherwise healthy man. Although some reports of facial nerve paralysis in(More)
INTRODUCTION The sphenoid sinus is an important structure in ventral skull base surgeries that is surrounded by several vital anatomical structures including the internal carotid arteries, optic nerve and cranial nerves inside the cavernous sinus. In addition, the foramen rotundum is a small canal deeply situated in the base of the skull, which represents(More)
Background: The most important and complex phenomenon of respiratory function of the nose is related to different nasal anatomy. The differences in facial anatomic structure between different races may also be reflected in nasal resistance and airflow. Caucasians has different facial anatomic structure which is the reflection of intranasal resistance or(More)
In this paper, methane adsorption on open ended single-walled carbon nanotubes (o-SWCNT) is studied using molecular dynamics simulation. A site-site potential model of so-called Leonard-Jones is considered to evaluate all interactions. Monolayer/multilayer adsorption isotherms for methane inside/outside of an armchair (10, 10) o-SWCNT are obtained at(More)
