Abstract: Tinnitus is defined as a cortical phantom sound perception in the absence of an appropriate external stimulus. It has an estimated prevalence of 10% to 15% in the adult population and about 20% of them are distressed by it and even find the disorder life-changing.
Case Report Pages 36-38
Abstract: Nasal foreign bodies are frequent in children; nevertheless those who include palate and nasal cavity are rare. We present an unusual foreign body that affects the nose and hard palate, in patient with a partially corrected oronasal fistulae in a cleft palate syndrome.
CLINICAL IMAGE Pages 34-35
Abstract: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is commonly ordered in the workup of the anosmic patient. Anosmia is associated with relatively reduced olfactory bulb and tract (OBT) volumes on MRI in a variety of clinical settings, but congenitally anosmic patients will characteristically have olfactory nerve aplasia or hypoplasia.
RETROSPECTIVE COHORT STUDY Pages 29-33
Abstract: The techniques of partial laryngectomy are based on the compartimentalization of the larynx and their aims are to provide the oncologically radical excision and to preserve the laryngeal function.
CASE REPORT Pages 25-28
Abstract: Extranodal NK/T-cell lymphoma, nasal type (ENKTL) is a highly malignant and aggressive lymphoma. A 48-year-old woman with nasal obstruction, facial swelling, fever, and headache was found to have nasal tumor.
CASE REPORT Pages 20-24
Abstract: Myopericytoma (MPC) was accepted as a separate entity by the World Health Organization in 2002 and it describes a lesion which comprises of myoid-like oval to spindle-shaped cells with a concentric perivascular type of growth.
Short Communication Pages 15-19
Abstract: Ear surgery has commonly been performed under microscopy. The microscopic surgical view angle is straight; therefore, many important structures and spaces are hidden behind obstacles. However, endoscopy has a wide view angle, which enables surgeons to observe the previously hidden sides of the ear. Endoscopy was first used for observation of the middle ear by Mer, et al. in 1967.
Original Research Pages 9-14
Abstract: A total of 1505 patients with OSAHS underwent surgical treatments. Based on the time periods, the patients were divided into three consecutive phases. Patients from the first phase to the third phase received few to most types of intervention. SPPH therapeutic experience was summarized and SPPH incidence rates were compared among the three phases. SPPH incidence rates with mono-level or multi-level surgeries were also compared.
Case Report Pages 4-8
Abstract: Mucous membrane pemphigoid is a relatively rare disorder involving mucosal lesions. Here, we report two cases of mucous membrane pemphigoid. This report is the first to discuss narrow band imaging of the mucosal features of mucous membrane pemphigoid. The two patients presented with sore throat and multiple stomatitis. Optic fiberscopy revealed mucosal lesions on the gingiva, palate, epiglottis, and arytenoid.
Case Report Pages 1-3
Abstract: The use of mastoid vibration in addition to repositioning maneuvers for the treatment of benign paroxysmal positional vertigo of the posterior semicircular canal (PSC-BPPV) was described for the first time by Epley. There is evidence in the literature that the additional use of mastoid vibration could provide a substantial advantage also in the treatment of the apogeotropic variant of BPPV of the horizontal semicircular canal (HSC-BPPV).
