OBJECTIVE The aim of our study was to investigate the relationship between the destruction of temporal bone structures, ossicular chain destruction, dissemination of cholesteatoma and the expressions of bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs), BMP-2, BMP-4 and BMP-6 in patients with acquired cholesteatoma. MATERIAL AND METHODS This study was performed in a(More)
The aim of this study was to assess the effects of Glial growth factor (GGF) and nerve growth factor (NGF) on nerve regeneration in facial nerve anastomosis. In this study, approximately a 1-mm segment was resected from the facial nerve and the free ends were anastomosed. All animals underwent the same surgical procedure and 30 rabbits were grouped randomly(More)
OBJECTIVES We investigated the incidence and etiologic factors of pharyngocutaneous fistulas occurring after total laryngectomy. PATIENTS AND METHODS The study included 53 patients (46 males, 7 females; mean age 59 years; range 34 to 84 years) who underwent total laryngectomy for epidermoid carcinoma.

Mulberry hypertrophy occasionally coexists with sinonasal pathologies. There are very few reports in the literature on this clinical entity. We conducted a retrospective study to draw attention to this condition in the context of accompanying sinonasal pathologies. Our study group was made up of 68 patients-51 males and 17 females, aged 13 to 57 years(More)
We aim to define a cartilage reshaping and repositioning technique for caudal septal dislocations, with the logic of adapting the smoother tissues to the stiffer structures. The study was designed retrospectively with the patient charts and photographic analysis. Thirty-six patients who had septal surgery in a septoplasty or an open approach(More)
BACKGROUND The medications may enhance the recovery after nerve paralysis. We aimed to evaluate the effects of aminoguanidine (AG), melatonin, and methylprednisolone on peripheral facial nerve neurorrhaphy. METHODS The buccal branch of the facial nerve was transected and autografted in 32 New Zealand rabbits. Subjects were divided into 4 groups equally(More)
