OBJECTIVES This study aims to investigate the effect of primary surgery on the morbidity of reoperative thyroid surgery. PATIENTS AND METHODS Fifty-seven patients (14 male, 43 female; mean age 41 years; range 21 to 70 years), who underwent reoperative thyroid surgery in our clinic between January 2007 and January 2012 were retrospectively analyzed in(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the diagnostic value of echo-planar diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging in pre-operative detection of suspected primary acquired, residual and/or recurrent cholesteatoma. MATERIALS AND METHODS Fifty-eight chronic otitis media patients with suspected cholesteatoma were thus evaluated two weeks pre-operatively, and divided(More)
OBJECTIVES Acute invasive fungal rhinosinusitis (AIFR) is an aggressive fungal infection in immunocompromised patients with high mortality rates. The aim of this study is to present our experiences on endonasal treatment in immunocompromised pediatric hematology-oncology patients with AIFR. METHODS Thirteen pediatric hematology-oncology patients treated(More)
BACKGROUND Laparoscopic cholecystectomies (LC) are generally performed in a 12 mmHg-pressured pneumoperitoneum in a slight sitting position. Considerable thromboembolism risk arises in this operation due to pneumoperitoneum, operation position and risk factors of patients. We aim to investigate the effect of pneumoperitoneum pressure on coagulation and(More)
PURPOSE The 2-port laparoscopic appendectomy technique (TLA) is between the conventional 3-port and single-port laparoscopic appendectomy surgeries. We compared postoperative pain and cosmetic results after TLA with conventional laparoscopic appendectomy (CLA) by a 3-port device. METHODS Patients undergoing TLA were matched with patients undergoing CLA(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the satisfaction of patients with a cochlear implant using a Parents' Perspective Questionnaire and analyze the significant parameters. MATERIALS AND METHODS Patients who received a cochlear implant in Çukurova University between March 2002 and November 2012 were included in the study. Parents were asked to answer the Parents'(More)
BACKGROUND The general prognostic factors in larynx tumors are believed to be tumor stage, anatomical location, histological differentiation and the presence of neck metastasis. Effects of tumor invasion to sub-regions of larynx (anterior commissure, ventricle, subglottic space) and over-expression of p53, c-erb-B2 and Ki67 detected immunohistochemically on(More)
Examination of anatomical structures including the septum, internal and external nasal valve regions is essential in planning for functional rhinoplasty. In modern rhinoplasty procedures nasal functions (breathing and olfaction) beside its cosmetic role; should not be ignored for a successful operation. We should respect supportive structures of the nose in(More)
Epistaxis is a very common medical problem in otolaryngology practice and can usually be controlled with conservative interventions. Rarely, uncontrolled and life threatening epistaxis occurs. We present the case of a 29-year-old male who developed intractable intermittent epistaxis due to post-traumatic pseudoaneurysms arising from the cavernous segment of(More)
Understanding nasal anatomy and physiology are the most important points for successful functional rhinoplasty. Anatomic structures playing major roles in nasal breathing functions include the septum, and internal and external nasal valves, so physical examination of these regions is essential. Planning for functional rhinoplasty involves the identification(More)
