BACKGROUND The nasal septal deviation (NSD) is one of the major causes of nasal obstruction. This condition increases upper airway resistance. In This study we evaluated the mean pulmonary artery pressure (MPAP) in patients with markedly deviated septum. METHODS Sixty two patients with NSD (Age range: 26-45 years, 34 men and 28 women) were included in the(More)
Inferior rectus muscle recession tends to retract the lower eyelid. Several surgical techniques have been recommended to minimize this problem.

METHODS In this prospective, randomized clinical trial, 38 patients with canalicular or punctal obstruction (25 partial, 13 complete)(More)
AIM To study the frequency of amblyogenic factors in patients with congenital ptosis. METHODS In this cross-sectional study, 114 eyes of 100 patients with congenital ptosis more than 1 year old were included. Amblyopia was defined as best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) less than 10/10 or a difference between the two eyes of at least 2/10. In patients too(More)
