METHODS Seven patients with bilateral congenital choanal atresia aged ranging from 3 to 15 days were operated upon between June 2009 and September 2011. This transnasal(More)
OBJECTIVES To objectively assess the effectiveness of endoscopy assisted adenoidectomy utilizing adenoid tissue volume measurement and to set some parameters for which patients are more legible to this procedure. METHODS Forty three patients for whom adenoidectomy was conventionally done using adenoid curettes. Surgeon's satisfaction for adenoid removal(More)

OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to assess the topical use of autologous platelet rich plasma (PRP) to improve success rate of myringoplasty. METHODS This study was carried out on 64 patients with large dry central tympanic membrane perforations. Myringoplasty was performed through postauricular approach by underlay graft using conchal perichondrial(More)
IMPORTANCE A reliable procedure is needed to solve the problem of difficult airway in patients with bilateral vocal cord paralysis without adversely affecting patient "voice quality." OBJECTIVES To compare the results of laser-assisted posterior cordotomy with diathermy-assisted posterior cordotomy for bilateral vocal cord paralysis in regard to dyspnea(More)
BACKGROUND Choanal atresia is the most common inborn nasal anomaly, and its definitive treatment is surgical to achieve proper bilateral nasal patency. Four main surgical approaches were used for repair: transantral, transpalatal, transseptal, and transnasal. The transnasal endoscopic approach is the most widely accepted nowadays. In this study, we aimed to(More)
Introduction Posterior tympanotomy approach for cochlear implant (CI) surgery, has been the most commonly used worldwide with current 0.7% rate of facial nerve injury. Non-mastoidectomy CI approaches include the suprameatal approach (SMA) and its modifications, the transcanal approach and its modifications and the pericanal approach for electrode insertion.(More)
OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS Evaluate the effect of topical application of autologous platelet-rich plasma (PRP) in primary repair of complete cleft palate and then compare the result with another group of patients using the same surgical technique, without application of PRP with regard to the incidence of oronasal fistula, velopharyngeal closure, and grade of(More)
Introduction The ability to treat fracture with open reduction and internal fixation (OR/IF) has dramatically revolutionized the approach to mandible fracture. With OR/IF, the postoperative role of rigid maxillomandibular fixation (MMF) has declined, but it is used to maintain proper occlusion until internal fixation of the fracture is achieved.
