In this study, the cure and functional results of 133 functional neck dissections performed between 1992-1997 in Erciyes University Medical Faculty were evaluated. The overall recurrence rate was three per cent. This rate was 1.4 per cent for elective functional neck dissections and five per cent for curative functional neck dissections. Electromyographic(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate the influence of arytenoid resection on voice and swallowing function in patients who undergo supracricoid laryngectomy with cricohyoidopexy. STUDY DESIGN A case series with chart review. According to the arytenoid number, patients were divided into two groups: 11 patients with two arytenoids and 9 patients(More)
The objective of the present study was to determine the pattern of lymphatic spread in papillary thyroid carcinoma with clinically positive nodes. Between 1999 and 2008, a total of 48 consecutive patients with clinical evidence of cervical lymph node metastasis of papillary thyroid carcinoma underwent 61 modified radical neck dissections (13 being(More)
In this study, the correlation between neck metastasis and recurrence was investigated by studying specimens of tongue squamous cell carcinoma patients immunohistochemical with survivin antibodies in the primary biopsy. A retrospective review was conducted at the Academic University Hospital. 46 patients who had squamous cell carcinoma of the tongue, who(More)
Aspiration of exudate through an open perforation was performed in 183 patients with chronic otitis media. The pus was cultured aerobically and anaerobically. Aerobes only were isolated from 71 patients (39%); 20 patients (11%) had only anaerobes; and 91 patients (50%) had both aerobes and anaerobes. Only 1 specimen had no growth. There were 259 aerobic(More)
The present study was undertaken to evaluate the role of localization on the rate of occult metastasis in early stage supraglottic laryngeal carcinoma. We selected carefully 32 T1–2 clinically N0 patients without epilarynx involvement and 39 T1–2 clinically N0 patients with epilarynx involvement from among patients with supraglottic laryngeal carcinoma. All(More)
The aim of this study was to assess the contribution of thallium-201 scintigraphy to primary tumour detection in patients with malignant neck masses and to evaluate its sensitivity and specificity. A total of 30 patients with histopathologically proven malignant tumours were included in the study. The sensitivity, specificity and accuracy of 201Tl(More)
Endolaryngeal spread of laryngeal malignant tumours is usually determined by conventional endoscopy; however, it can not measure the outward extension of the tumour. As an alternative method for assessing the extension of a tumour and detecting metastatic lymph nodes, we have introduced high-resolution ultrasonography (US) in 34 patients with laryngeal(More)
We investigated the difference in the biologic nature of typical squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) and basaloid SCC (BSCC) of the larynx by studying proliferation and antiapoptotic markers. We performed an immunohistochemical analysis of the expression of proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA) and bcl-2 protein in 15 patients with laryngeal BSCC and 15(More)
