Idiopathic rhinitis without eosinophilia is a group of frequently observed diseases, the aetiopathogenesis of which is not yet well known. One of the most disturbing symptoms for patients within this disease group is nasal hypersecretion. Although many different treatments have been tried for hypersecretion, nasal topical drugs form the basis of any such(More)
OBJECTIVES Nasal obstruction caused by inferior turbinate hypertrophies is one of the most frequent problems in otolaryngology. Treatment of this disease may involve medical and surgical methods. Thermal ablation with radiofrequency energy has become quite popular in the recent years as one of the surgical methods used when medical therapy is not adequate.(More)
OBJECTIVES We compared the extent of healing and hearing improvement following tympanoplasties performed with the use of cartilage-perichondrium composite grafts and temporalis muscle fascia grafts. PATIENTS AND METHODS Fifty consecutive patients (22 males, 28 females; mean age 30+/-14 years; range 11 to 63 years) with chronic otitis media were divided(More)
OBJECTIVE We report a rare case of a spindle cell lipoma with atypical clinical course. CASE REPORT A 51 year old female patient referred to our clinic with feeling of mass in the throat she had had for two years. The patient described difficulty in swallowing. Indirect laryngoscopy did not reveal any masses at bilateral pyriform sinuses, and the mucosa(More)
Although there are several factors affecting the pathogenesis of chronic otitis, the pathological process has not been entirely defined yet. One of the theories suggested for the development of middle ear diseases is tubal dysfunction. The aim of the study is to analyze the function of the tensor veli palatini (TVP) muscle electromyographically in chronic(More)
We appreciate to receive these constructive and valuable comments regarding our article entitled ‘‘Is neutrophil– lymphocyte ratio associated with the severity of allergic rhinitis in children?’’ [1]. As mentioned by Wiwanitkit, it is more feasible to analyze the blood samples on the same analyzer [2]. However, the results were obtained on two separate(More)
Neutrophil lymphocyte ratio (NLR) could be an important measure of systemic inflammation. There is a lack of knowledge about the neutrophil–lymphocyte ratio in rhinitis. We aimed to determine the relationship between the clinical parameters of allergic rhinitis and NLR in children. 438 children who were diagnosed with allergic rhinitis and followed up in(More)
OBJECTIVES Adenoid hypertrophy (AH) may cause several comorbid conditions including sleep apnea, chronic serous otitis and sinusitis. Such conditions are more common among children with allergic diseases. In our study, we aimed to determine the patient profile associated with higher incidence of adenoid hypertrophy and the related influential factors. (More)
Our study aims to evaluate the presence of adenoid hypertrophy (AH) in children with allergic rhinitis (AR) and the association of AH disease severity and clinical laboratory finding from retrospective, cross-sectional, and nonrandomized trial. The study included 566 children being treated and followed up for allergic rhinitis. Skin prick test for the same(More)
Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is a technique which causes a reduction in tissue amount using ablation by high-frequency current. Beside other surgical tools, RFA has become quite popular over the past decade. Hypertrophy of the inferior turbinate is a common cause of chronic nasal obstruction. There is no agreement on how to deal with this problem. An ideal(More)
