Tympanomeatal flap creation in endoscopic stapedotomy: cautery vs. cold instrumentation
Purpose Bleeding is one of the most challenging issues for surgeons performing endoscopic stapedotomy. During creation and elevation of the tympanomeatal flap (TMF) prevention or control of bleeding greatly facilitates the ...
Comparison of Quality of Life Before and After Septoplasty With Short Form-36
(Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2020)
The authors aimed to evaluate quality of life after septal surgery with Short Form-36 survey, and the effectiveness of the survey. Nasal symptoms (nasal obstruction, facial pain, catarrh), and general quality of life (using ...

Utilization of incus with bone cement for total ossicular reconstruction
(Taylor & Francis Ltd, 2019)
Background: Total ossicular chain reconstructions are performed to connect mobile stapes footplate and tympanic membrane. Data on the use of incus for total ossicular reconstruction is quite limited in the literature. ...
Radioprotective effect of endogenous melatonin secretion associated with the circadian rhythm in irradiated rats
(Taylor & Francis Ltd, 2019)
Purpose: We investigated the radioprotective effect of endogenous melatonin release at different times associated with the circadian rhythm on head and neck radiotherapy. Materials and methods: Two groups of animals were ...
Can MRI-induced silastic casing tear be repaired without the need for cochlear implant replacement?
(Elsevier Ireland Ltd, 2019)
Silastic magnet casing tear of cochlear implant (CI) due to magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is an uncommon complication. We report repair of a case with magnet dislocation due to MRI-induced silastic casing tear without ...
Can Wideband Tympanometry Be Used as a Screening Test for Superior Semicircular Canal Dehiscence?
(Korean Soc Otorhinolaryngol, 2019)
Objectives. We explored whether wideband tympanometry (WBT) could be used as a screening test for superior semicircular canal dehiscence (SSCD), and obtained new WBT data (given that the test is not yet in common clinical ...
The relation between retrobulbar blood flow and posterior ocular changes measured using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography in patients with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome
PurposeTo investigate the effect of posterior ocular hemodynamics on the retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL), choroid thickness (CT) and central macular thickness (CMT) in patients with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) ...
The evaluation of prognostic factors in endoscopic cartilage tympanoplasty
Purpose the aim of the present study was to evaluate the prognostic factors that may affect the success in endoscopic cartilage tympanoplasty and determine the outcomes of endoscopic cartilage tympanoplasty. Methods This ...
