The inferior alveolar nerve is the one of the large branches of the mandibular division of the trigeminal nerve. It is vulnerable during surgical procedures of the mandible. Despite its importance, no anatomical and histological examination has been conducted to provide a detailed cross-sectional morphology of the mandibular canal according to dental(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of the present study was to assess the relationship between the maxillary sinus floor and the maxillary posterior teeth root tips using dental cone-beam CT. METHODS A total of 87 right and 89 left maxillary sinus regions from 92 patients were examined using dental cone-beam CT. Images were analyzed by a specialist in oral and(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of atorvastatin as an antioxidant and tissue protective agent and study the biochemical and histopathological changes in experimental ischemia and ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury in rat ovaries. The experiment used 48 adult female rats, and the experimental groups can be summarized as: group I, a sham(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to assess the accuracy and reproducibility of cone-beam CT measurements of specific distances around the mandibular canal by comparing them to direct digital caliper measurements. METHODS Six formalin-fixed hemimandible specimens were examined using the ILUMA cone-beam CT system. Images were obtained at 120 kVp,(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the course of the marginal mandibular branch of the facial nerve (MMBFN) and its relation to the inferior border of the mandible and facial vessels. METHODS This cadaveric study was conducted at the Department of Anatomy, Gulhane Military Medical Academy, Ankara, Turkey from April to September 2012. The 44 facial halves of 22 adult(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of the study was to evaluate the pain scores and complications of transrectal ultrasonography (TRUS)-guided prostate biopsy and to compare lithotomy position (LP) versus left lateral decubitis position (LLDP). METHODS A total of 340 patients were referred for TRUS-guided biopsy. In group 1 (n = 170), biopsies were performed in LP (n =(More)
Anatomical knowledge regarding the long thoracic nerve (LTN) is important during surgical procedures considering that dysfunction of this nerve results in clinical problems. The purpose of this study was to explore the anatomy of the LTN, its origin, configuration, branching pattern, and relationship to the middle scalene muscle (MSM). The course of the LTN(More)
OBJECTIVE To reveal the effects of montelukast as an antioxidant and tissue protective agent and study the biochemical and histopathologic changes in experimental ischemia and ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury in rat ovaries. DESIGN Experimental study. SETTING Experimental surgery laboratory in a university department. ANIMAL(S) Forty-eight rats with(More)
The styloid process is a bony projection, located just anterior to the stylomastoid foramen, the normal length of which is approximately 20-25 mm. Elongation of the process may cause various clinical symptoms such as neck and cervicofacial pain, described as Eagle's syndrome. The present study aimed to determine the mean length of the styloid process on(More)
