We present a rare case of unilateral phlebectasia of the anterior jugular vein in a 56-year-old male patient whose complaint is a neck swelling that appears during talking. Although in this age group the most common cause of such a mass in the anterior aspect of the neck increasing in size during any type of straining or Valsalva manoeuvre is a laryngocele,(More)
OBJECTIVE We aimed to investigate, histopathologic changes in the nasal mucosa of guinea pig's after prolonged administration of oxymetazoline and the development of rhinitis medicamentosa, and the efficacy of mometasone furoate aqueous nasal spray and saline in reversing the ultrastructural changes attributable to rhinitis medicamentosa. METHODS In the(More)
Sixty-eight patients who presented with glottic and glottosupraglottic squamous cell carcinoma and who were managed in this department with supracricoid partial laryngectomy (SCPL) with either cricohyoidoepiglottopexy (CHEP) or cricohyoidopexy (CHP), were retrospectively reviewed. The authors analysed the functional and oncological results of the patients.(More)
Assessment of auditory abilities is important in the diagnosis and treatment of children with autism. The aim was to evaluate hearing objectively by using transient evoked otoacoustic emission (TEOAE) and auditory brainstem response (ABR). Tests were performed on 30 children with autism and 15 typically developing children, following otomicroscopy and(More)
We report a 19-year old female patient with the McCune-Albright syndrome, which is a rare disease consisting of polyostotic fibrous dysplasia (FD) of bone associated with brown pigmented areas of the skin and several endocrine dysfunctions. The patient had FD involving the paranasal sinuses, the middle turbinate and the skull. The endocrine dysfunction of(More)
BACKGROUND The present study was designed to assess how anaerobic exercise affects auditory brainstem response (ABR) parameters, and whether one night of sleep deprivation could alter these possible exercise-induced changes in ABRs. METHODS Seven healthy, audiologically normal male students (mean age 22.4 +/- 1.0 years) participated in the study. All(More)
OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS Previous studies have shown a relationship between eustachian tube function and size of mastoid pneumatization, as well as eustachian tube function and middle ear (ME) barotrauma. The purpose of this study is to investigate a possible relationship between size of mastoid pneumatization and ME barotrauma in sports scuba (self-contained(More)
This aim of this study was to determine the effect of anaesthetic agents on stapedius reflex (SR) thresholds and transient evoked otoacoustic emissions (TEOAE). Fifty patients who were scheduled for operation and who had normal hearing were included in the study. All were given midazolam for premedication and propofol for induction. Anaesthesia was(More)
OBJECTIVES This experimental study was performed to evaluate the protective effect of magnesium on amikacin ototoxicity. STUDY DESIGN Twenty-seven guinea pigs (54 ears) with normal auropalpebral reflexes and otomicroscopic examination, auditory brain stem responses (ABR), and transient evoked otoacoustic emissions (TEOAE) were randomly divided into four(More)
