OBJECTIVE To define the impact of patient-related and audiovestibular parameters on the prognosis of sudden hearing loss. METHODS Eighty-three patients were included in this retrospective study. All were treated medically. We recorded the patients' demographic parameters, systemic diseases, time elapsed between onset of sudden hearing loss and initiation(More)
OBJECTIVE Assessment of plastipore prostheses for middle ear ossicular chain reconstruction. Hearing results with total and partial Plastipore ossicular replacement prostheses (TORP and PORP) were evaluated in open- and closed-cavity operations. STUDY DESIGN A retrospective review of 237 patients who underwent operation for chronic ear disease as well as(More)
The objective of this study was to evaluate the results of endoscope-assisted acoustic neuroma surgery in posterior fossa approach. Between 1996 and 2002, 60 consecutive patients with acoustic neuroma were operated via the retrosigmoid suboccipital approach. Standard 4-mm sinus endoscopes at different angles were used during the surgeries either for(More)
Secretory otitis media (SOM) is a disease of childhood, and this period is characterized by active growing of the craniofacial skeleton (CFS). In this study, we purposed to answer the question 'how deviations in CFS play a role in ethiopathogenesis of SOM'? Therefore, we evaluated the 'mastoid-middle ear-Eustachian tube (M-ME-ET) system' in 30 SOM cases and(More)
OBJECTIVE We aimed to present the complications of auditory brain stem implantations (ABI) in pediatric patients which were performed via retrosigmoid approach. METHODS Between March 2007 and February 2010, five prelingually deaf children underwent ABI (Medel device) operation via retrosigmoid approach. All children had severe cochlear malformations. The(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the clinical importance of the petrosquamosal lamina (Korner's septum [KS]), which is not only a bony plate dividing the mastoid cells at the level of antrum, but is also a lamina starting from the posterior aspect of the glenoid fossa that extends above the middle ear cavity and courses in an inferior direction lateral to the facial(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the influence of sectioning of the Jacobson's (tympanic) nerve on middle ear functions. METHOD Twenty-five adult New Zealand rabbits were included in this study. The Jacobson's nerve was cut in the left ear of the rabbits (study group), whereas only a small mucosal incision was performed while keeping(More)
BACKGROUND Sodium-2-mercaptoethanesulfonate (MESNA) is a protective agent that is also used as "a chemical dissector" in various surgical fields. The aim of this study is to evaluate the toxic effects of MESNA on neural and neurovascular structures based on a morphological analysis and examine its safety in neurotological applications. METHODS Three(More)
We have investigated the effect of nitrous oxide on the middle ear pressure, comparing inhalational anaesthesia with nitrous oxide and halothane and total intravenous anaesthesia with propofol-alfentanil. Fifty patients with normal healthy ears were divided into two groups. In one group (n = 25), anaesthesia was induced with thiopentone 6 mg kg-1, and(More)
