OBJECTIVE To study over time correlations between Compound Action Potential measured through Neural Response Imaging (NRI) and electrically Evoked Stapedius Reflex Thresholds (eSRT) and psychophysical measurements to develop guidelines for using those objective measures to optimize HiRes programs in patients implanted with Advanced Bionics CII-Bionic Ear or(More)
Headache is one of the most frequent physical complaints of humans. Although headaches are generally benign, neuroimaging studies are frequently performed in clinical practice for the fear of missing a serious underlying disease. Arachnoid cysts are cavities with a content similar to cerebrospinal fluid, frequently communicating with the subarachnoid space.(More)
The adequacy of anesthesia and comfort during surgery was assessed for 100 consecutive patients undergoing middle ear surgery using local anesthesia, both by the patients themselves and by the surgeon.

PATIENTS AND METHODS The study included 98 patients (40 females, 58 males; mean age 64 years; range 60 to 77 years) who presented with hoarseness. All the patients were examined by videolaryngoscopy. Temporary hoarseness secondary to respiratory tract infections was(More)
OBJECTIVES Surgery for otosclerosis has a highly satisfactory hearing outcome, for both the patient and the otologic surgeon. However, subsequent conductive hearing loss, dizziness/vertigo, or sound distortion could necessitate revision surgery. The aim of the present study is to evaluate the surgical findings and hearing outcomes of 84 revision stapes(More)
OBJECTIVES The effect of cochlear implantation on voice development in prelingually deaf children was investigated. PATIENTS AND METHODS The study included 60 prelingually deaf children (28 girls, 32 boys; mean age 68 months; range 37 to 128 months) who underwent cochlear implantation. Voice analyses were made between 6 to 21 months after the first(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to research and compare the affects of cordectomy, frontolateral laryngectomy or cricohyoidopexy techniques over voice parameters prospectively. PATIENTS AND METHODS Fifty-six larynx cancer patients (56 males; mean age 59; range 48 to 71 years) whom cordectomy, frontolateral laryngectomy or cricohyoidopexy was(More)
Pleomorphic adenoma is mixed and usually benign tumor originating salivary glands. The most common salivary gland tumor is pleomorphic adenoma. The most common localization of pleomorphic adenoma is parotid gland. Although it is found in major salivary gland, pleomorphic adenoma may be found paranasal sinuses and nasal cavity rarely. A 74-year-old female(More)
OBJECTIVES We evaluated the long-term results of functional surgery for attic cholesteatoma. PATIENTS AND METHODS In this study, we presented the results of 81 patients (42 males 39 females; mean age 34 years; range 8 to 59 years) who underwent functional surgical techniques for attic cholesteatomas between January 1992 and January 1998. All the patients(More)
