In this paper an efficient cone oriented circuit partitioning method is presented, which significantly speeds up automatic test pattern generation for combinational circuits. The advantages gained by the proposed partitioning method are based on the increase in the number of dominators in the circuit graph. In contrast to conventional ATPG working on the(More)
Laryngocele is generally defined as abnormal dilatations of the laryngeal saccule. Its etiology is not well known but probably caused by congenital and acquired causes. It is uncommon and usually asymptomatic. It may be seen at any age but is most commonly presented at fifth and sixth decades. They are defined as internal, external, and mixed (combined)(More)
Mucormycosis is a life-threatening fungal infection that occurs in immunocompromised patients. The most common predisposing risk factor for mucormycosis is diabetes mellitus. Rhino-orbito-cerebral mucormycosis is the most common form in diabetic patients and is characterized by paranasal sinusitis, ophthalmoplegia with blindness, and unilateral proptosis(More)
The aim of this study was to assess the role of magnetic resonance diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) in the characterization of parotid gland tumors using different b values. Thirty-six patients with 41 parotid masses were included in this prospective study. DWI images were obtained using three different b values (100, 500, and 1000 s/mm2). The final(More)
Inflammatory myofibroblastic pseudotumor (plasma cell granuloma) is a soft tissue lesion consisting of myofibroblasts, mature lymphocytes, histiocytes, plasma cells, eosinophils, and extracellular collagen. Various sites in the body may harbor these lesions. Lungs, omentum, intestines, mesentery, and urinary system are the most susceptible areas. It is(More)
Sinolith is a calculus in the paranasal sinuses. It has been also known as antrolith, rhinolith, antral calculi, antral stone, or antral rhinolith. The pathogenesis of calculi formation within a paranasal sinus is still not known. Chronic infection, foreign material, poorly draining sinus, and fungal infection are the main predisposing factors. Isolated(More)
Introduction Dermoids frequently called "hairy polyps" and their nature have not been completely clarified. Objectives To discuss the unusual presentation, symptoms, incidence, histology, and perioperative management of hairy polyps in the light of a case and current literature. Resumed Report A 3-year-old boy presented with intermittent respiratory(More)
Genetic changes that may be associated with complex diseases are tried to be determined by means of many genome-wide association studies. Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) are used primarily in these studies since they comprise a large part of these genetic changes. Statistical importance of the genome-wide association study is directly related to the(More)
BACKGROUND Deep neck infections are important otolaryngologic emergencies due to serious complications and the risk of airway compromise, which can lead to mortality. Although the most common causes among pediatric patients are tonsillitis and pharyngeal infections, odontogenic infections are an important cause in adults. CASE REPORT We present three(More)
