OBJECTIVE To determine the effectiveness of postoperative local anesthesia in tonsillectomy patients using an intra-individual study design. METHODS Thirty patients aged 5-15 were included in a prospective study. Patients received a local infiltration of 0.5% bupivacaine solution on the right tonsillar bed, and received a local infiltration of normal(More)
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)
Henoch-Schönlein purpura (HSP) is a vasculitis of small-sized blood vessels, resulting from immunoglobulin-A-mediated inflammation. It is the most common acute systemic vasculitis in childhood and mainly affects skin, gastrointestinal tract, joints, and kidneys. The characteristic rash of HSP consists of palpable purpuric lesions 2 to 10 mm in diameter(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Adhesion formation after abdominal surgery or incisional hernia repair with prosthetic materials may cause chronic pain, intestinal obstruction, enterocutaneous fistulae, difficulty in reoperative procedures and infertility in females. The aim of this study was to compare different modalities in terms of adhesion prevention in a rat model of(More)
BACKGROUND Red cell distribution width (RDW) is one of the standard parameters with blood cell counts. Much previous research has indicated that it increases in cases of systemic inflammation or cardiametabolic incident. However, information on the relation of RDW with solid tumors causing systemic inflammation is limited. In the present research, we(More)
Angiofibroma arising outside the nasopharynx is unusual. The nasal septum is an extremely rare site for an angiofibroma to originate, and, to date, only 3 cases have been reported in the literature. We reported here the fourth case of nasal septal angiofibroma. A 27-year-old male patient with nasal deformity applied to the Erciyes University ENT Department.(More)
This is a review of ectopic localizations of the parathyroid gland in one case. A hard mobile mass (2 x 2.5 cm) was detected on the right side of the neck of a patient who had previously been given a diagnosis of hyperparathyroidism. Computed tomography showed an adenoma (25 x 35 mm) in the paratracheal region on the right side of the neck. Scintigraphy(More)
BACKGROUND Cytological examination of pleural effusions is very important in the diagnosis of malignant lesions. Thoracentesis is the first investigation to be performed in a patient with pleural effusion. In this study, we aimed to compare traditional with cell block methods for diagnosis of lung disease accompanied by pleural effusion. MATERIALS AND(More)
Ovarian tumors and cysts are rarely seen in children. They constitute 1-2% of solid tumors among children. Over tumors are categorized into three main groups: epithelial, embrionic, and sex cord-stromal tumors. Sex cord-stromal tumors arise from primordial cell cords that are located in the center of the ovary during embriological development. We have(More)
Our century is a century that struggle with cancer is continuing. In this struggle, along with effective treatment methods, developing early and easy diagnosis techniques are crucial. Cytological examination of the pleural effusion fluid is the most common diagnosis technique (Rodriguez et al., 1989; Biesterfeld et al., 2014). The cytological examination of(More)
