OBJECTIVES Juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma (JNA) is a highly vascular and locally invasive tumor with a high incidence of persistence and recurrence. The classical treatment of this tumor is surgery and/or radiotherapy. Use of endoscopic techniques seems to be on the rise in treatment of these lesions. We tried to explore the roles and limits of(More)
OBJECTIVES To discuss the shortcomings of current staging systems and to suggest modifications according to new surgical methods and data. STUDY DESIGN A retrospective chart review. METHODS The medical records of 36 patients, all of whom underwent resection of juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma by external or endonasal approach between 1983 and 2002,(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the long-term results and the factors influencing the success in patients with nasolacrimal duct obstruction treated with intranasal endoscopic dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) and silicone tube intubation (STI). We prospectively investigated 158 patients with lacrimal obstruction in two groups, one of which comprised 108(More)
In this era of antibiotics, the complications of acute sinusitis are much less frequently encountered. Although orbital complications are most common, intracranial complications carry a high rate of mortality and morbidity. We describe a case of acute frontal sinusitis with subdural empyema and blindness due to cavernous sinus thrombosis and carotid artery(More)
Patients with paranasal sinus foreign body are not commonly seen in otolaryngological practice; glass in the frontal sinus as a complication of maxillofacial trauma should be very rare, and papers dealing with this issue appear to be rare in the English literature. To elucidate the diagnostic pitfalls and the treatment aspects we present three cases of(More)
Variations and anomalies of the internal carotid artery in the neck are not rare. Although the possibility of these variations is well known, it may mislead the surgeon in certain circumstances as in the present case. A 68-year-old female patient had an asymptomatic looping of the internal carotid artery, which was recognized during neck dissection. This(More)
Septoplasty is one of the most common operations performed in otolaryngology and anterior nasal packing is done routinely to prevent postoperative bleeding, septal hematoma or nasal synechia. Currently, transseptal sutures have gained a broader application area, not only for preventing the complications such as septal hematoma and bleeding but also closing(More)
OBJECTIVES This study was designed to compare two endoscopic examination methods, the Muller maneuver (MM) and fiberoptic pharyngoscopy during sleep, both of which are used to detect obstructed segments in patients with obstructive sleep apnea. PATIENTS AND METHODS The study included 28 patients (23 males, 5 females; mean age 44.6 years; range 28 to 59(More)
Because of its vulnerable location, the frontal sinus may be involved in several types of maxillofacial trauma. This involvement may cause fractures of the anterior and/or posterior walls of the sinus,1 lodgment of foreign bodies in the sinus,2 and anterior cranial fossa dural tears, which may result in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) rhinorrhea, meningitis,(More)
