OBJECTIVES This study aims to investigate the correlations between nasal polyposis (NP) and NP density with neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and platelet to lymphocyte ratio (PLR). PATIENTS AND METHODS The study included 105 patients (72 males, 33 females; mean age 41.33±12.85 years; range 16 to 63 years) diagnosed as NP (NP group) and 83 healthy(More)
Carotid-cochlear interval (CCI) is the minimal distance between petrous segment of internal carotid artery (ICA) and basal turn of cochlea. Pulsations of the ICA might create fluid pressure changes and direct stimulation of hair cells on the basilar membrane of basal turn of cochlea which is responsible for mid-tone frequencies. The purpose of this study(More)
BACKGROUND Bell's palsy is the most frequent cause of unilateral facial paralysis. Inflammation is thought to play an important role in the pathogenesis of Bell's palsy. AIMS Neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and platelet to lymphocyte ratio (PLR) are simple and inexpensive tests which are indicative of inflammation and can be calculated by all(More)
OBJECTIVES This study aims to investigate the consistency of Epworth sleepiness scale (ESS) results and polysomnography (PSG) findings in the patients with sleep-disordered breathing (SDB). PATIENTS AND METHODS A total of 109 patients (68 males, 41 females; mean age 48.6 years; range 20 to 77 years) who were admitted with the complaints of apnea,(More)
OBJECTIVES We evaluated functional outcomes in patients undergoing supracricoid partial laryngectomy (SCPL). PATIENTS AND METHODS The study included 20 male patients (mean age 61.5 years; range 43 to 76 years) who underwent SCPL for advanced laryngeal carcinoma. Correlations were sought between variables (age, medical history, reconstruction techniques(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the efficacy of three different myringoplasty techniques, namely hyaluronic acid fat graft myringoplasty (HAFGM), fat graft myringoplasty (FGM), and temporal fascia for the closure of different sizes and sites of tympanic membrane perforations. MATERIALS AND METHODS We retrospectively analyzed the medical records of patients who had(More)
Extranodal lesions may be the sole manifestation of Rosai-Dorfman disease (RDD). Although the head and neck region is one of the most common extranodal sites, laryngeal involvement is very rare. A 44-year-old woman presented with a complaint of progressive dyspnea. She had a three-year history of treatment for asthma and a history of operation for a nasal(More)
OBJECTIVE The authors aimed to analyze the effect of septoplasty, performed in 2 groups with different grades of nasal septal deviation (NSD), on voice performance. METHODS A total of 43 patients who had septoplasty due to NSD and were included in the study. The study groups were divided into 2 groups as groups A and B. The patients in group A had severe(More)
OBJECTIVES This study aims to investigate the relationship between platelet count and mean platelet volume (MPV) with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS). PATIENTS AND METHODS This retrospective study included 417 OSAS patients (284 males, 133 females; mean age 47.9±10.0; range 23 to 75 years) who were performed polisomnography (PSG) in our clinic(More)
The aim of the current study is to investigate the potential relationship between polymorphisms and nasal polyposis (NP) pathogenesis in the SCGB3A1 (UGRP2) gene, which is a member of the secretoglobin gene super family. Genotypic variations were studied by performing DNA sequencing in blood samples of 80 patients with NP and 70 healthy individuals to(More)
