In this report we present 2 cervical sympathetic chain schwannoma (CSCS) cases with different clinical presentations, one being a pulsatile neck mass associated with Horner's syndrome and the other being an asymptomatic neck mass. CSCS usually presents as an asymptomatic neck mass and atypical findings such as Horner's syndrome and/or pulsation may occur in(More)
An aberrant innominate artery located high was observed during a cadaveric neck dissection. To our knowledge, an innominate artery crossing the 4th and 5th tracheal rings has rarely been reported in available literature. Knowledge of this anomaly is important for those who are involved with percutaneous procedures in the neck to avoid major complications.
Massive hemorrhage is an unusual complication of tracheotomy, and the most common causes are injury to the anterior jugular veins and the thyroid isthmus, or unrecognized variations of the vascular structures, such as the arteria thyroidea ima. We present a case of high-running innominate artery that ascends until the third tracheal ring and courses(More)
A 16-year-old female admitted to otolaryngology outpatient clinic with the complaints of pain and replacement of her left eyeball upwards. Radiological imaging demonstrated a solid mass inferior to the left globe. The anterior wall of the maxilla was thinned and the mass pushed the orbital floor inferiorly. Following subciliary incision, the bone over the(More)
Ameloblastic carcinoma (AC) is an aggressive malignant epithelial odontogenic tumor. It may appear de novo or originate from a pre-existing ameloblastoma or odontogenic cyst. To our knowledge, an AC that originates from the anterior skull base has not been reported before in the English literature. We report a case of an AC that originated from the anterior(More)
Identification of the alar fascia is the key part of surgical dissection of the retropharyngeal lymph nodes (RPLNs). In cases where mandibulotomy is not performed for the removal of the primary tumor and/or the posterior pharyngeal wall is not incised, the medial or lateral approaches described in this paper can be performed. Surgical dissection of the(More)
Antrochoanal polyps (ACP) are almost always unilateral. Only two bilateral cases have been reported to date, both of them in children. There have been no investigations of the aetiology of the bilateral occurrence of these lesions, possibly due to the rarity of bilateral ACPs. In this paper, we report on the first adult case of bilateral ACPs and review the(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate, first, the effects of septal deviation and concha bullosa on nasal airflow, and second, the aerodynamic changes induced by septoplasty and partial lateral turbinectomy, using computational fluid dynamics (CFD). METHODS A three-dimensional model of a nasal cavity was generated using paranasal sinus computed tomography images of a(More)
