Accidental injury to the facial nerve where the bony canal defects are present may result with facial nerve dysfunction during otological surgery. Therefore, it is critical to know the incidence and the type of facial nerve dehiscences in the presence of normal development of the facial canal. The aim of this study is to review the site and the type of such(More)
Large vestibular aqueduct syndrome (LVAS) is a common inner ear anomaly responsible for some unusual vestibular and audiological symptoms. The gross appearance of CT scan of the inner ear is generally normal. However, precise measurement of the inner ear components reveals abnormal dimensions, which may account for accompanying auditory or vestibular(More)
The current treatment method for cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) rhinorrhea is surgical repair of the fistula. The aim of this study was to analyse different surgical approaches used for the treatment of CSF rhinorrhea regarding several preoperative and postoperative variables to determine the optimal method in these patients. Patients' charts were(More)
OBJECTIVE The object of this study was to compare the expression of epidermal growth factor, interleukin-1alpha, and tumor necrosis factor-alpha in chronic otitis media with or without cholesteatoma. BACKGROUND It has been reported that cytokines and epidermal growth factor are effective in the bone resorption process in chronic otitis media. Bone(More)
Hearing impairment has been reported to be one of the late complications of diabetes mellitus (DM), and the frequency varies. Previous data suggest that auditory brainstem potentials deteriorate long before the hearing impairment appears in patients with DM. Delay in neural conductance along the auditory pathway due to DM was assessed by means of auditory(More)
Aim of the study was to investigate whether postoperative middle and late latency responses (MLR and LLR) give some clues of postoperative performance of cochlear implant (CI) users. The study was performed in ten prelingual and six postlingual-CI patients with the age ranging from 6 to 48 years (mean 19.7 +/- 15.7 years). The following criteria were sought(More)
OBJECTIVES Hearing loss after spinal anesthesia has been reported to be related to the transmission of a reduced subarachnoid pressure to the inner ear via the cochlear aqueduct due to loss of spinal fluid. However, there are also some controversies related to this phenomenon, which require systematic investigation. MATERIAL AND METHODS The effect of(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to analyze the effect of a surgical management protocol and other important clinical features on the prognosis of patients who had penetrating orbitocranial gunshot injuries. METHODS Thirty-five patients (30 unilateral, 5 bilateral) who had penetrating orbitocranial gunshot injuries were analyzed. The wounds were(More)
Management of traumatic facial nerve disorders is challenging. Facial nerve decompression is indicated if 90-95% loss of function is seen at the very early period on ENoG or if there is axonal degeneration on EMG lately with no sign of recovery. Middle cranial or translabyrinthine approach is selected depending on hearing. The aim of this study is to(More)
We report a 22-yr-old male patient with hypogonadotrophic hypogonadism (HH) associated with a giant middle fossa arachnoid cyst (AC) diagnosed by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). He presented with pubertal and growth delay. He also had learning disabilities and anosmia. Laboratory investigation revealed pre-pubertal levels of testosterone and normal(More)
