Tertiary rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure to correct nasal deformities that have been developed after prior unsuccessful surgeries. Such surgery requires complicated manipulations and tissue grafting for proper restoration. In the current study, we report the use of fascia lata graft combined with cartilage grafts for contour restoring and camouflage.(More)
OBJECTIVES The relationship between the recurrent laryngeal nerve (RLN) and the inferior thyroid artery (ITA) is an important and helpful landmark for isolating the RLN and its branches during surgery. In the present study, we aimed to define and classify in detail all of the possible relationships between the two anatomic structures and their branches. (More)
Conventional tracheal reconstruction techniques are not successful at restoring functional units in situations with extensive damage involving more than half the length of the trachea. For the first time, we investigated in vivo tissue-engineered trachea regeneration from a decellularized cadaveric trachea matrix with seeded adult adipose tissue-derived(More)
BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to show the efficacy of olfactory stem cells for injured facial nerve reconstruction in a rat model. METHODS Olfactory stem cells were isolated from the olfactory mucosa of human participants. A 2-mm excision was performed on the right facial nerve of all rats. Reconstruction was performed with a conduit in group 1(More)
OBJECTIVE This study was designed to investigate the effects of open technique rhinoplasty on facial nerve terminal branches more concerned with mimicry via electroneurography (ENoG). METHODS Twenty patients ages between 24 and 36 years were included in the study. Five nasal mimicry muscles were used to evaluate axonal loss of the facial nerve: bilateral(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the presence of Helicobacter pylori in human lacrimal and nasal secretions. Eighty patients with complaints of dyspepsia who had undergone endoscopies and gastric antrum biopsies were included in the study. A total of five specimens, including 2 lacrimal secretion samples, 2 nasal mucosal swab samples, and 1 gastric(More)
INTRODUCTION Caudal septal dislocation is both a functional and an aesthetic problem. The caudal septum that causes nasal obstruction displaces the right or left of columella. Despite the various maneuvers currently available for treatment, this issue is still controversial. We describe a new technique that uses a nonabsorbable suture material to keep the(More)
