High-altitude (HA) environments have adverse effects on the normal functioning body of people accustomed to living at low altitudes because of the change in barometric pressure which causes decrease in the amount of oxygen leading to hypobaric hypoxia. Sustained exposure to hypoxia has adverse effects on body weight, muscle structure and exercise capacity,(More)
The aim of this retrospective study was to investigate the relationship between cribriform plate (CP) dimensions and septal deviation degree. Coronal paranasal CT scans of 99 patients were reviewed. We measured depth and width of cribriform plate on both sides and compared with septal deviation side and septal deviation degree. Deviation angles were 6.85 ±(More)
Concha bullosa is generally defined as the pneumatization of the middle turbinate and, rarely, of the superior or the inferior turbinates. A symptomatic pneumatization of the superior turbinate is extremely rare. When symptomatic, concha bullosa may cause various problems. Concha bullosa can be easily recognized in paranasal sinus computed tomography. In(More)
INTRODUCTION The only anatomical variation of the superior turbinate defined in the literature is concha bullosa. Determination of anatomical variations of the intranasal structures is important to perform safe endoscopic sinus surgery and avoid complications. CASE PRESENTATION We report a case of an unusual anatomical variation of the superior turbinate(More)
Pneumatization of the intranasal turbinates or concha bullosa is an anatomic variation of the lateral nasal wall. Concha bullosa is defined as the presence of air cells in turbinates. It can be best diagnosed with paranasal sinus computed tomography. Concha bullosa is a possible etiologic factor for recurrent sinusitis due to its negative effect on(More)
In recent years, with the widespread use of imaging techniques such as paranasal sinus computed tomography (CT), many variations of nasal turbinates have been described. One of these variations known as concha bullosa (CB) is pneumatization of nasal turbinates. CB is the most frequently encountered anatomical variations of the middle turbinate. The term of(More)
