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 The management of glottic carcinoma in situ (CIS) is controversial, with vocal cord stripping (S) generally accepted as the standard treatment, and radiotherapy (RT) as an alternative. We present our experience with 34 patients treated by either stripping or RT. METHODS ++Between 1974 and 1990, 34 patients with CIS of the glottic larynx larynx(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)
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 Diced cartilage has been associated with several advantages and rewarding results, leading to its widespread application in various forms in rhinoplasty, but the outcomes of diced cartilage with and without tensor fascia latae wrapping have not been widely reported in evidence-based articles. OBJECTIVES The authors compared changes in weight,(More)
BACKGROUND In certain cases of endoscopic forehead lift without muscle resection, patients were incidentally noted to develop weakness or loss of their ability to frown during the postoperative period despite intact musculature. This finding suggested the possibility of decreasing frown strength using the disinsertion of the relevant muscles. This finding(More)
BACKGROUND In most references to the nasal anatomy, the shape of the lower lateral cartilage (LLC) is described as a two-dimensional structure. However, the authors have found different forms of LLC in at least 40% of their open rhinoplasty cases during the past 20 years. This cartilage was found to have a three-dimensional hemispheric appearance and to be(More)
Oral cancer is considered a great threat to public health. Tongue cancer accounts for nearly 30% of all oral cancers and usually seen in 50 to 60 year old men. Oropharyngeal cancers account for 3% of all cancers in Iran; as reported in 2003. The present study was designed to assess the epidemiologic and clinicopathologic characteristics of tongue cancer(More)
Although mucoepidermoid carcinoma is the most common primary malignancy of the salivary glands, the sclerosing morphologic variant of this tumor is extremely rare, with only 6 reported cases. As its name suggests, sclerosing mucoepidermoid carcinoma is characterized by an intense central sclerosis that occupies the entirety of an otherwise typical tumor,(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)
