OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS We sought to investigate the role of desmoglein 3 in pathogenesis of sinonasal inverted papilloma (IP) and its malignant transformation. METHODS Fifteen subjects with sinonasal IP and 15 subjects of normal sphenoid sinus mucosa were enrolled. Each specimen was divided into two portions: one for mRNA expression analysis by real-time(More)

OBJECTIVE To evaluate hospitalization rates and duration of surgery associated with transnasal endoscopic marsupialization compared with sublabial excision in treating nasolabial cysts. DESIGN Retrospective clinical series. SETTING Large urban community hospital. PATIENTS Consecutive sample of 57 patients with nasolabial cysts treated from January 1,(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the viability of translocated facial bone grafts among 3 different techniques of facial translocation: free bone graft (FBG), attached bone graft (ABG), and modified facial translocation (MFT). STUDY DESIGN A total of 107 patients were divided into 3 groups: FBG group without reconstruction (N = 33), ABG group (N = 14), and FBG group(More)
BACKGROUND Because dental implantation and sinus augmentation are widely performed in recent years, one of their possible complications, maxillary sinusitis, has become a major concern for both dentists and otolaryngologists. This study evaluates the characteristics of dental implant-related chronic rhinosinusitis (DIrCRS) and the outcome of endoscopic(More)
BACKGROUND Kaposi's sarcoma (KS) is an uncommon borderline vascular tumor involving mostly the cutaneous and mucosal sites of the body. Among the four distinctly clinicopathological presentations of KS, the iatrogenic form principally occurs in kidney transplant recipients receiving immunosuppressive therapy. It rarely occurs in the head and neck region as(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of transnasal endoscopic marsupialization as a treatment modality in patients with postoperative maxillary mucoceles and to compare the efficacy of marsupialization via middle meatal antrostomy with that of marsupialization via inferior meatal antrostomy. The study design was a retrospective clinical series(More)
