Secretory otitis media (SOM) is a disease of childhood, and this period is characterized by active growing of the craniofacial skeleton (CFS). In this study, we purposed to answer the question 'how deviations in CFS play a role in ethiopathogenesis of SOM'? Therefore, we evaluated the 'mastoid-middle ear-Eustachian tube (M-ME-ET) system' in 30 SOM cases and(More)

Although high percentages of negative cultures are confronted in many studies, strong evidence pointing to the infectious nature of this disease could not be overlooked. Many authors agree about the failure of conventional culture methods(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the clinical importance of the petrosquamosal lamina (Korner's septum [KS]), which is not only a bony plate dividing the mastoid cells at the level of antrum, but is also a lamina starting from the posterior aspect of the glenoid fossa that extends above the middle ear cavity and courses in an inferior direction lateral to the facial(More)

Despite the routine application of intact canal wall mastoidectomy for chronic suppurative otitis media, the outcome of mucosa within the mastoidectomy cavity is not wellknown. The purpose of this was to evaluate the mastoidectomy cavity and obtain mucosal study specimens from the mastoidectomy cavities in order to reveal any residual pathology.(More)
OBJECTIVE Our purpose was to evaluate efficiency of immediate repair of the tympanic membrane perforation after intentional removal of the long-lasting tubes. METHODS This study was done in 36 ears of 27 patients who had either Goode-T or Paparella-II silicone tube insertion due to chronic OME or ROM and tube removal. Only the ears in which tube removal(More)
