Nasal packing may influence the mucociliary clearance of the nose in the postoperative healing phase. In an attempt to overcome some of this problem, a haemostatic septal suturing technique was conceived. In this prospective study, we aimed to investigate the effects of nasal packing and septal suturing technique on mucociliary clearance by(More)
The objective of the present study was to determine the pattern of lymphatic spread in papillary thyroid carcinoma with clinically positive nodes. Between 1999 and 2008, a total of 48 consecutive patients with clinical evidence of cervical lymph node metastasis of papillary thyroid carcinoma underwent 61 modified radical neck dissections (13 being(More)

The present study was undertaken to evaluate the role of localization on the rate of occult metastasis in early stage supraglottic laryngeal carcinoma. We selected carefully 32 T1–2 clinically N0 patients without epilarynx involvement and 39 T1–2 clinically N0 patients with epilarynx involvement from among patients with supraglottic laryngeal carcinoma. All(More)
The supraglottic larynx has a rich lymphatic network that places patients with supraglottic laryngeal carcinomas at high risk for early dissemination of the disease into the cervical lymphatics. Therefore, elective neck treatment of clinically N0 neck in patients with supraglottic carcinomas is widely accepted as a standard approach. However, the issue(More)
AIM The aim of this study is to evaluate the role of CD44 and matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-9 expression in predicting neck metastasis of supraglottic laryngeal carcinoma. MATERIALS AND METHODS Two hundred ninety-four supraglottic laryngeal cancers were treated surgically from 1991 to 2005. Ninety-four of the 294 patients had pathologically metastatic(More)
