Deviated nose correction is difficult and constitutes a very different issue from septal deviation. When correcting this deformity, traces of asymmetry can be detected. The authors demonstrate facial asymmetry accompanying deviated noses, and such asymmetry is usually ignored by surgeons who typically concentrate only on nose deformities.A total of 5822(More)
BACKGROUND Multiple sclerosis (MS) has numerous neurologic signs and symptoms, including hearing impairment. The reports concerning the type and severity of hearing loss in MS patients vary and little is known about an association of the disease characteristics with changes in hearing status. OBJECTIVE To find the otologic and neuro-otologic(More)
Elevation of the skin along with its deep fascia vascular network is a recent facility for flap design. The longitudinal trapezius fasciocutaneous flap was first introduced in 1996; at that time it did not receive much attention, although it has many significant benefits compared with other available procedures. Sixteen trapezius fasciocutaneous flaps were(More)
Background. Acid assault is one of the most brutal of crimes. This crime is not meant to kill but to punish the victim or to destroy the victim's social life. This violent act usually occurs in third-world countries. The aim of this paper is to assess the epidemiological factors that steer a person toward such a violent act. Method. From May 2004 to October(More)
The main issues in nasal surgery are to stabilize the nose in the good position after surgery and preserve the cartilages and bones in the favorable situation and reduce the risk of deviation recurrence. Also it is necessary to avoid the synechia formation, nasal valve narrowing, hematoma and bleeding. Due to the above mentioned problems and in order to(More)
BACKGROUND Actinidia deliciosa (kiwifruit) is used as a meat tenderizer. It acts rapidly and efficiently to soften meat, liquefying it if allowed to work for more than a few hours. Observing this effect and the lack of studies addressing this subject in the literature, the authors sought to investigate the use of this natural remedy in an animal model for(More)
A bulky nose is a challenging issue to manage, and surgeons have not found the ultimate solution to this problem in the evolution of rhinoplastic surgery. Because of the multiplicity of techniques and controversies published in the literature, it has become confusing for the operating surgeon to find the most appropriate and effective way of solving this(More)
BACKGROUND Successful inflation of a tissue expander (TE) and coverage of the face with tissue of similar colour and texture is usually limited by the amount of skin generated during the reconstruction process. Overexpanding the TE device generates an increased flap size and an overall better reconstructive outcome. PATIENTS AND METHODS A total of 86 TEs(More)
BACKGROUND Epidural anesthesia (EA) is known to reduce postoperative thromboembolic complications, but the mechanisms are poorly understood. Review of the literature revealed no reports about the ability of epidural anesthesia (EA) to reduce the risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE) in abdominal contouring surgery and/or liposuction. Most medical(More)
BACKGROUND Diced cartilage is a valuable material that has recently been added to the graft options in rhinoplasty. Shaping, fixation, and resorption are the main concerns with this material. Perichondrially attached diced conchal cartilage may be a new possibility to solve some of these problems. OBJECTIVES The authors evaluate the outcome of(More)
