BACKGROUND Reconstruction of the middle third of the nose is crucial and middle vault insufficiency is possible following dorsal reduction in a primary rhinoplasty unless additional surgical measures are taken. The aim of this study was to define a novel suturing technique autospreading spring flap for middle vault reconstruction by suturing only the medial(More)
BACKGROUND Understanding of the anterior skull base anatomy is crucial to avoid intracranial violations during endoscopic surgery. The aims of this study were to define the normative data about cribriform plate depth and the relationship between this dimension and the measurements of the adjacent anatomical structures such as middle turbinate length,(More)
The elimination of cisplatin ototoxicity is an ongoing concern. This experimental study was undertaken to investigate the effect of oral erdosteine in ameliorating cisplatin-induced ototoxicity. Twenty-eight adult female Wistar albino rats were randomly divided into four equal groups. Group A received an oral carrier vehicle of the drug erdosteine with 0.2(More)
OBJECTIVE Little attention has been paid to the effects of electromagnetic field (EMF) of mobile phones on hearing. The aim of this study is to investigate the effects of chronic exposure to EMF emitting from mobile phones on the inner ear of adult and developing rats using distortion product otoacoustic emissions (DPOAEs). METHODS EMF of mobile phones(More)
Maxillary sinus hypoplasia (MSH) is an uncommonly encountered condition by otolaryngologists. The computerized tomography (CT) scans provide valuable data about the anatomic details of the paranasal sinuses. MSH may be misdiagnosed as an infection or a neoplasm of the maxillary sinuses. Variations of the other paranasal structures, especially the uncinate(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate whether thymoquinone has any eliminative effects against inner-ear damage caused by acoustic trauma. METHODS Thirty-two male rats were divided into four groups. Group 1 was only exposed to acoustic trauma. Group 2 was given thymoquinone 24 hours before acoustic trauma and continued to receive it for 10 days after the trauma. Group(More)
BACKGROUND A prospective endoscopic and radiologic evaluation of long-term outcomes of crushing and crushing with intrinsic stripping, 2 minimally destructive techniques used for the surgical treatment of concha bullosa. METHODS Forty-two patients who underwent concha bullosa surgery (a total of 55 conchae surgeries) were included in the study. The(More)
Tracheoesophageal puncture is a simple procedure for speech rehabilitation of total laryngectomy patients. Despite its relative simplicity this is not an innocent technique without complications. The goal of this study was to determine the incidence of acute mediastinitis as an early postoperative complication related to this procedure and to present(More)
The widespread use of mobile telephones has given rise to concern about the potential influences of electromagnetic fields (EMFs) on human health. Anatomically, the ear is in close proximity to the mobile telephone during use. Hearing loss due to mobile telephone use has not been described in the medical literature; however, if there is a subtle cochlear(More)
Although many surgical techniques have been introduced, there are few clinical studies investigating postoperative results in crooked nose deformity. The aim of this study is to discuss the surgical choices for specific deformities and to report the long-term quantitative surgical results of our cases. One hundred and twenty cases (38 women, 82 men) with(More)
