OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS We present a novel surgical method to preserve the inferior thyroidal vein and investigated its effectiveness in reducing postoperative transient hypocalcemia. STUDY DESIGN Retrospective cohort study. METHODS From January 2012 to October 2012, 109 total thyroidectomy patients with bilateral central neck dissection were included in(More)
PURPOSE To compare the short term effects of bevacizumab and ranibizumab injections on the regression of corneal neovascularization (NV). METHODS Sixteen eyes of 16 patients with corneal NV were randomly assigned for an injection with 2.5 mg of bevacizumab (group 1, n = 8) or 1 mg of ranibizumab (group 2, n = 8) through subconjunctival and intrastromal(More)
PURPOSE To compare corneal pachymetry assessment using slit scanning imaging (Orbscan), rotating Scheimpflug imaging (Pentacam), dual Scheimpflug system (Galilei), and ultrasound pachymetry in normal and post-femtosecond (FS) laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) eyes. METHODS Sixty eyes of 60 patients were enrolled for this study, which consisted of 30(More)
BACKGROUND Although ultrasound is regarded as the first choice imaging modality for evaluating a pediatric neck mass, neck computed tomography (CT) is necessary for urgent surgical conditions such as deep neck infections. Our aim was to evaluate the diagnostic effectiveness of and proper patient selection for neck CT as a method for the initial evaluation(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to evaluate the association between preoperative parameters and extrathyroidal extension (ETE) of papillary thyroid microcarcinoma (PTMC) according to the BRAF mutation and to evaluate the preoperative predictability of ETE. METHODS We analyzed the medical records of 332 patients with PTMC (140 in the BRAF- group and(More)
PURPOSE To compare ultrasound (US) pachymetry, Orbscan, and optical coherence tomography (OCT) measurements of the central corneal thickness (CCT) before laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) and evaluate the reproducibility of flaps created with the IntraLase femtosecond laser (IntraLase, Inc.) using OCT. SETTING Department of Ophthalmology, IIsan Paik(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to describe a new method of femtosecond (FS) laser-assisted corneal tattooing and to report the results of this method in a case series. METHODS The study involved 6 eyes of 6 patients with total or partial corneal opacity. An FS laser was used for lamellar dissection and to make a side cut with a hinge, creating a(More)
BACKGROUND The aims of this study were to evaluate and compare the operative outcomes and postoperative subjective functional parameters of transaxillary (TA) and retroauricular (RA) approach thyroidectomy, with those of conventional hemithyroidectomy. METHODS From May 2011 through December 2013, 153 patients who underwent hemithyroidectomy were(More)
Objectives. This study evaluated the benefits of performing prophylactic central neck dissection (CND) with total thyroidectomy (TT) in management of papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) patients who were clinically node-negative at presentation. Methods. A total of 257 patients with stage T1 or T2 PTC and without preoperative evidence of lymph node(More)
BACKGROUND Allergic rhinitis is a chronic nasal inflammatory disease mediated by an immunoglobulin E mediated process to environmental allergens. Although atopy is a potent predisposing risk factor for allergic rhinitis, local tissue susceptibilities are inevitable for disease expression. The nasal epithelium maintains tissue homeostasis by providing a(More)
