Although cleft palate anomaly is frequent, the criterion standards in surgical treatment have not been determined yet. There are a few techniques described for cleft palate repair owing to the limited tissue in the palatal mucosa, the rigid structure of the palatal mucosa, and the limited vascularity of the hard palate. In this study, a novel cleft palate(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with maxillofacial fractures are at high risk of accompanying traumatic cranial injuries. Prompt determination of head injury in these patients is crucial for improving patient survival and recovery. METHODS The records of 246 patients with maxillofacial fractures referred to the emergency department of our hospital between January(More)
BACKGROUND Dorsal intercostal artery perforator (DICAP) flap is an ideal flap to be used for posterior trunk defects since it leads to lower donor-site morbidity and shorter operative times, offers easy surgical planning, and uses a reliable and easily identifiable artery. MATERIALS AND METHODS The study retrospectively reviewed 52 patients with(More)
A three-year-old male patient was brought to our clinic by his family with the complaint of a non-healing wound with discharge on his forehead and the nasal region. He had a history of a fall one-year ago. The patient had recurrent complaints of swelling and hyperemia following this trauma. He had undergone an operation with the pre-diagnosis of foreign(More)
OBJECTIVES The aims of the cleft palate repair techniques are to reduce the velopharyngeal insufficiency risk and oronasal fistula development to minimal levels without affecting the maxillofacial development. In this article, we present a retrospective study comparing the conventional palatoplasty techniques with the new technique of rotation palatoplasty(More)
To compare the perioperative findings of inferior pedicle reduction mammoplasty (IPRM) performed with or without a tourniquet. This study was carried out in the plastic and reconstructive surgery department at a tertiary care center on a total of 42 consecutive women scheduled for IPRM. Patients in Group I (n = 21) underwent surgery using a tourniquet,(More)
Thymoquinone (TQ) is a plant extract that has been shown to have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, angiogenic, antimicrobial, and anticarcinogenic effects. The aim of this study is to research how the use of TQ affects flap viability. 42 rats were placed into 6 groups, with 7 rats in each. A 3 × 10 cm McFarlane flap model was used on the test animals. The(More)
Most surgical techniques used in cleft palate repair require the extension of the palate to the pharynx. However, no adequate information exists regarding the extent to which this elongation obtained during operation continues in late postoperative period. In this study, we compared and measured palate elongation in patients with a cleft palate who(More)
Although many techniques have been described, new techniques with a wide range of therapeutic options are needed. The Kutlay technique is a novel technique that is based on the reconstruction of the neourethra with two horizontal meatal-based skin flaps. In the present study, the data of 31 patients who underwent surgery with the Kutlay technique are(More)
