Schwannomas are tumors of the peripheral nerves originating in the nerve sheaths that account for 1% of benign tumors located in the oral cavity. The tongue as a whole is the most common location for intraoral schwannomas to occur; however, it is quite rare to diagnose schwannoma in children. We are contributing a report of a 13-year-old child with a 1-year(More)
Objective Adenotonsillar hypertrophy (ATH) causing upper airway obstruction and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) syndrome and may lead to the pulmonary hypertension and cor pulmonale. This study was designed to determine the clinical value of right ventricular (RV) myocardial performance index (MPI) in ATH. The effects of adenotonsillectomy on MPI were also(More)
OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS To analyze the differences between biodegradable and nondegradable nasal dressings with regard to their effects on wound healing in the short and medium term and on surgical outcomes in the long term, after endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS). STUDY DESIGN A prospective, randomized, partly blinded, controlled trial. METHODS A total of(More)
The aim was to evaluate the efficacy of [18F]-2-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) in evaluating metastasis of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) to the cervical lymph nodes, with specific attention to the efficacy in regard to clinically negative necks. This was a retrospective review of 243 patients(More)
CONCLUSION We could not find any significant difference in the results for graft success rate and functional hearing results between the myringoplasty and tympano-mastoidectomy groups. So mastoidectomy may not be necessary for successful tympanic membrane reconstruction and hearing improvement. OBJECTIVE To investigate the effect of aerating mastoidectomy(More)
CONCLUSION The presence of pepsinogen in middle ear effusion (MEE) supports the relationship between gastroesophageal reflux (GER) and otitis media with effusion (OME). Measurement of pepsin/pepsinogen can be considered as a simple and reliable method for assesment of reflux in children. However, further research is needed to establish a definite(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) in patients with laryngopharyngeal symptoms, the relationship between laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR) and Helicobacter Pylori infection and treatment response to proton pump inhibitors. Forty-five patients with suspected gastroesophageal reflux diseases related(More)
OBJECTIVE Our aim was to examine the elevation of pulmonary arterial pressure in children with upper airway obstruction caused by adenotonsillar hypertrophy according to their disease severity assessed with symptom scoring and to demonstrate the profit for echocardiographic monitorization of the children with adenotonsillar hypertrophy regardless of their(More)
This study was carried out to compare the outcomes of endoscopic sinus surgery in patients with chronic sinusitis without nasal polyps (CRS) and those with nasal polyps (NP). We also sought to determine the correlation between preoperative computed tomography (CT) findings and postoperative endoscopy and symptom score improvement. Data were collected from(More)
BACKGROUND Oral allergy syndrome (OAS) is a unique allergic reaction to food, which is caused by cross-reactivity between proteins in fresh fruits or vegetables and pollens. Predisposing factors for OAS are not well known in patients with seasonal allergic rhinitis. OBJECTIVE Identify the probable risk factors for OAS in patients with seasonal allergic(More)
