Olfactory Dysfunction and Olfactory Bulb Volume Reduction in Patients with Leprosy
To ascertain the level and rate of olfactory dysfunction in patients with leprosy and to determine whether olfactory bulb volume is affected by the pathophysiology. Olfactory bulb (OB) volume, measured using magnetic ...
Effect of Nasal Corticosteroid on Secretory Immunoglobulin A Measured in Rat Nasal Lavage: Experimental Study
Objective In this study, we aimed to experimentally investigate the effects of nasal corticosteroids on the levels of secretory immunoglobulin A (sIgA) in nasal mucosa in rats.
Severe Saddle Nose: Choices for Augmentation and Application of Accordion Technique against Warping
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 ...
Audiological findings in pediatric perineal allergic rhinitis (house dust mite allergy) patients
Allergic rhinitis is the type 1 hypersensitivity reaction of the nasal mucosa and its primary mediator is Ig E. It is most frequently observed in children and adolescents. Our purpose in this study is to investigate the ...
Medical ozone therapy for the inner ear acoustic trauma
Objectives: The goal of the study was to look at the potential protective effect of ozone therapy by studying its antioxidant and vasodilatation effects against hearing loss caused by acoustic trauma.
Otoacoustic Emission Responses of the Cochlea to Acute and Total Ischemia
In the present experimental study, we sought to monitor distortion product otoacoustic emissions (DPOAEs) as an indicator of cochlear function, after sudden, total, and irreversible interruption of cochlear blood flow, ...
Thermal effects of cold light sources used in otologic surgery
The objective of this study was to investigate the thermal effects of cold light sources and endoscopes on the inner ear. 25 male guinea pigs were assigned equally to five groups (1: Halogen-1 min, 2: Halogen-5 min, 3: ...
Effect of Postrhinoplasty Taping on Postoperative Edema and Nasal Draping A Randomized Clinical Trial
BACKGROUND Edema persists for months after rhinoplasty. Numerous modalities have been described to counteract postoperative edema.
Protective effect of trimetazidine on amikacin-induced ototoxicity in rats
Objective: Aminoglycoside antibiotics are known to have ototoxic effects and may induce sensorineural hearing loss. This study investigated the protective effect of trimetazidine, which has antioxidant and cytoprotective ...
Reduced olfactory bulb volume in total laryngectomy patients: a magnetic resonance imaging study
Objectives: The olfactory bulb (OB) is a remarkably plastic structure with highly active afferent neurons, which is partly reflected by its volume. Although deterioration of olfaction after total laryngectomy is reported ...
