The anatomy of the nasolacrimal duct (NLD) in relation with the lateral nasal wall was studied in 15 half-heads of human adult cadavers by serial photographs of the dissection of the lateral nasal wall. The aim of the study was to determine the intranasal anatomical relationships of the NLD with the lateral nasal wall for surgical reference during(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)
OBJECTIVE To compare the effectiveness of acetaminophen versus acetaminophen-plus-honey following pediatric tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy. DESIGN Prospective, randomized, and placebo controlled clinical trial. SETTING Tertiary care facility in Ankara, Turkey. PATIENTS Sixty consecutive tonsillectomy patients randomized to two groups. INTERVENTIONS(More)
Choanal polyps almost always appear as solitary growths and most commonly arise from the maxillary sinus. Sphenochoanal and ethmoidochoanal polyps are extremely rare. Co-existence of more than one choanal polyp is even more infrequent. We present a patient with an antrochoanal and an accompanying sphenochoanal polyp for the first time in the literature. We(More)
Laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR) as a causative irritating factor in the development of laryngeal carcinoma has been suggested. However, the association between LPR and laryngeal carcinoma remains unclear. The aim of this study was to compare the prevalence and severity of reflux between patients with laryngeal carcinoma and clinical LPR. The intention was to(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.
The aim of this study is to compare the efficacy of levo-bupivacaine, a long-acting local anesthetic and lidocaine in postoperative analgesia following septoplasty. 112 patients randomized into two groups were included in the study. 56 patients were operated using levo-bupivacaine and 56 using lidocaine as the local anesthetic. All patients were asked to(More)
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)
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)
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)
