OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to analyze the functional and oncologic results of supracricoid partial laryngectomy. STUDY DESIGN Case series with chart review. SETTING Katip Celebi University Ataturk Training and Research Hospital, Izmir, Turkey. SUBJECT AND METHODS The medical records of 56 patients, who underwent supracricoid partial(More)
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the internal acoustic canal is the standard diagnostic tool for a wide range of indications in patients. This study aims to investigate the vascular variations and compression of the cranial nerves (CNs) VII and VIII at the cerebellopontine angle in patients with neuro-otologic symptoms using 3D-fast imaging employing(More)
INTRODUCTION Adhesion formation is a frequent and serious post-operative problem in ENT surgery. This study assessed the effect of two anti-adhesive haemostatic agents on an experimental guinea pig model. MATERIALS AND METHODS The middle-ear mucosa of 14 guinea pigs was exposed to surgical trauma. After surgery, Arista™ AH was injected into the right(More)
AIM To investigate levels of matrix metalloproteinases 2 and 9, and of their tissue inhibitor (i.e. tissue inhibitor matrix metalloproteinase 1), in the serum of patients with tympanosclerosis. MATERIALS AND METHOD We included 40 patients (age range 13-63 years) who had undergone surgery in the ENT department of Izmir Atatürk Training and Research(More)
AIM The aims of this study were to compare radiofrequency tissue reduction (RFTR) and electrocautery (EC) techniques by assessing preoperatively and 8 weeks postoperatively the visual analog scale (VAS), inspiratory peak flowmetry (IPF), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) volume measurement of the inferior turbinate and to see whether EC still stands as a(More)
The aim of our study was to determine the effectiveness of intratympanic α-lipoic acid injection as an otoprotective agent against cisplatin-induced ototoxicity in guinea pigs. Twenty-four adult male albino guinea pigs with normal hearing were divided into 4 groups. The guinea pigs received intraperitoneal cisplatin in group 1, intraperitoneal cisplatin and(More)
Reconstruction techniques continues to develop since the last 50 years . Initially, polyethylene tubes were used for reconstruction; however, biocompatibilitytested materials were later used to improve results. Today, autograft ossicles are the preferred material if present and synthetic materials are preferred otherwise.. As being involved most frequently(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the ototoxic effect of boric acid solution prepared with different degree of alcohol. METHODS This study was performed on 28 young albino guinea pigs. After the animals divided four groups prior to the application of the solution an auditory brainstem response (ABR) test was applied to the each animal under general anesthesia.(More)
We conducted a prospective study to compare the effectiveness of conventional computed tomography (CT) and puffed-cheek CT in detecting the presence and extension of oral cavity malignant tumors. We enrolled 11 patients--5 men and 6 women, aged 32 to 85 years--who had a primary squamous cell carcinoma of the oral cavity. These tumors were located in the(More)
OBJECTIVES To compare the hearing results and graft take rates of the recently developed gold wire prosthesis with those of the hydroxyapatite partial ossicular replacement prosthesis in patients with chronic otitis media. METHOD This retrospective study examined patients who underwent type 2 tympanoplasty with a minimum follow up of one year. The study(More)
