Myringosclerosis is hyalinization and calcification of certain areas of the tympanic membrane, especially the fibrous lamina propria layer and appears as white sclerotic lesions. Ventilation tube insertion is one of the most performed operations in the pediatric otorhinolaryngology practice to treat chronic otitis media with effusion. Myringosclerosis is a(More)
The present study focused on the comparison of mental health and quality of life (QoL) between chronic otitis media (COM) patients and the hearing population. The patients with chronic otitis media and healthy control group were enrolled in the study. The duration and severity of the auditory impairment were recorded. In addition to hearing loss (HL), the(More)
The aim of this experimental study was to determine the possible protective role of corticosteroid in prevention of streptomycin-induced ototoxicity. Twenty-eight adult Wistar albino rats were divided into 4 groups: control (n = 7), streptomycin (n = 7), corticosteroid (n = 7), and streptomycin + corticosteroid (n = 7). Rats were tested with distortion(More)
PURPOSE Wound healing of the nasal mucosa is a highly complex process that restores the anatomical and functional integrity of tissue that has been exposed to trauma. In this experimental study, our aim was to use histopathological examination to investigate the effects of caffeic acid phenethyl ester on the wound healing of rat nasal mucosa after(More)
Oral heterotopic gastrointestinal cyst is rarely seen in the oral cavity. The tongue and floor of the mouth are the most commonly affected sites. These cysts may cause feeding and respiration problems, especially in newborns and infants. A benign mass was considered according to the physical examination and ultrasonography findings. We treated the patient(More)
We investigated the role of leptin and asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA) in uncomplicated hypertension. We also investigated their relationship with insulin resistance and serum levels of several metabolic parameters, including homocysteine, lipoprotein(a) and malondialdehyde (MDA). A total of 34 untreated newly-diagnosed hypertensive patients (seven men(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to determine the severity of attention deficit, hyperactivity, and impulsivity symptoms in patients with obstructive airway problems scheduled to undergo adenoidectomy or adenotonsillectomy operation. The effects of the surgical treatment on these symptoms will also be investigated in a case-control design. (More)
Seborrheic keratosis is a common and benign cutaneous lesion occurring on the trunk, extremities, and head and neck of the elderly. It is rarely seen in the external auditory canal. We present a case of seborrheic keratosis in the external auditory canal of a one-year-old child. The patient was treated successfully with surgical excision.
OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS This study aimed to investigate and measure airway dynamics in anatomical regions where laryngeal cancer was most common in comparison to other regions of the larynx, thereby determining the effect of airway dynamics on the development of laryngeal cancer. STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS Pulmonary function test airflow data and larynx(More)
Congenital choanal atresia (CCA) is defined as a congenital failure in the development of communication between the nasal cavity and nasopharynx in newborns. It is the most common congenital anomaly of nose. Most of the patients presented with unilateral CCA. Neonates with bilateral CCA have severe respiratory distress after birth. Airway control with(More)
