Saddle nose deformity presents a significant challenge to surgeons. The reconstruction of a saddle nose requires structural addition to the nasal dorsum and tip. Costal cartilage grafts have been utilized for fixing severe saddle nose deformity, but costal cartilage is notorious for early and/or late warping. In addition to well-known measures, the efficacy(More)
We investigated the effect of a combination of pregabalin and dexamethasone, when used as part of a multimodal analgesic regimen, on pain control after rhinoplasty operations. Sixty patients were enrolled in this study. They were randomly assigned into three groups: Group C (placebo + placebo), Group P (pregabalin + placebo), and Group PD (pregabalin +(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate the developmental relationship between the volumes of paranasal sinuses and adenoid tissue by using a 3-dimensional (3D) reconstruction technique. STUDY DESIGN Cross-sectional study. SETTING Tertiary referral center. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Multislice computed tomography (MSCT) images were obtained using 3D(More)
AIM To investigate the possible differences in cochleotoxic effects in rabbits between twice-daily administration of topical gentamicin and tobramycin throughout the perforated tympanic membrane with the use of distortion-product otoacoustic emissions (DPOAEs). MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty female rabbits were studied prospectively daily for 21 days. The(More)

In this study, 90 patients who were scheduled for septoplasty under general anesthesia were randomly assigned into groups that received either placebo (Group C), pregabalin (Group P), or pregabalin(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to investigate the developmental relationship between adenoid tissue volume and mastoid air cell volume, using a 3D reconstruction technique. STUDY DESIGN Cross-sectional retrospective study. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Multislice computed tomography (MSCT) images were obtained using three-dimensional (3D) reconstruction and(More)
OBJECTIVES/AIM The primary objective of this study is to evaluate the effects of topically applied ketamine or tramadol on early postoperative pain scores in children undergoing tonsillectomy. The secondary aim of the study is to assess nausea, vomiting, difficulty in swallowing, and sore throat characteristics of the patients. BACKGROUND Tonsillectomy(More)
OBJECTIVE The objectives of the study were to retrospectively analyze the efficacy of intraoperative mitomycin C (MMC) in endoscopic dacryocystorhinostomy (END-DCR) and compare it with external dacryocystorhinostomy (EXT-DCR). METHODS For the comfort of the patients, the procedures were performed under general anesthesia. Intraoperatively during the(More)
OBJECTIVES Nasal polyposis is chronic inflammatory disease of the nasal mucosa of the nose and sinuses, often associated with chronic non-allergic rhinitis, aspirin intolerance and non-allergic asthma. The etiology of nasal polyposis is unknown. Multiple factors contribute to the development of nasal polyps including genetic predisposition. PATIENTS AND(More)
