Pilomatrixoma (Calcified Epithelioma of Malherbe) - Definition, Diagnosis, Treatment A 12-year-old female patient presented with a painless mass lesion growing near the outer edge of her left eyebrow in the last 3 months. The lesion was surgically removed under local anesthesia. The patient was diagnosed as Pilomatrixoma (calcified epithelioma of Malherbe) as a result of histopathological examination report.
What is the Pilomatrixoma? Definition Pilomatrixoma or Malherbe tumor is a benign, calcified adnexal tumor originating from the matrix of the hair follicle. Generally, it can be seen as a deep subcutaneous or superficial nodule in the head, neck and upper extremities and it usually occurs in the first two decades of life. Clinically it can be confused with various benign and malignant skin lesions. Recurrence after tumor removal is rare.

Pilomatrixomas are lesions that are frequently encountered by ear, nose and throat docrors and are often encountered by dermatologists. The inci…

How To Properly Clean Nose Tip After Open Technique Rhinoplasty Operation
I would like to offer you some suggestions for cleaning the nostrils after the nose aesthetic surgery. In the photo above and in the video below, I have a few information about the patient's nasal tip. About 2 weeks ago, we performed open technique nasal esthetics surgery in the photo and video showing the left nostril, there are a few information I want to tell you with arrows. The red arrow marks the areas where purple suture material of the vicryl suture material is seen. shows.


Normally, after open rhinoplasty surgery, after regular application of ointment into and into the nasal tip, the incision site can heal well after 2 weeks. However, if this area is kept dry, it can be mixed regularly with fingertips, nails, paper towels, napkins, cotton swabs, and redness swelling and superficial infection may occur.
How can you clean and keep healthy the nose tip after open technique rhinoplasty operation? Carin…

Is Snoring and Sleep Apnea A Problem That Must Be Treated?

Health Problems Due to Snoring and Sleep Apnea
Sleep, which constitutes an average of one third of human life, is of great importance for a healthy life. Poor quality sleep during daytime wandering constantly, while causing complaints such as lack of concentration; high blood pressure, rhythm disturbances in the heart, paralysis or sudden night death can cause sleep apnea. Snoring and sleep apnea are not only a social problem and may cause various health problems in the long term. Sleep apnea syndrome is a health problem that needs to be treated early because of early deterioration in cardiovascular health and early hypertension treatment and cardiologic examination.

In obstructive apneas, breathing may stop due to the narrowing of the airway due to the relaxation of the muscles in the airway during sleep, and even in some people it is completely closed. As the chest and abdominal muscles continue to contract, respiratory muscles contract again and the airway opens. During this event…

Modified Young Procedure and Septum Correction Surgery

Nasal Hyperventilation and Hypoventilation
Each tissue within our nose has different functions and functions. There are 3 structures called turbinate in each nasal cavity. They are involved in moistening, purifying, heating and pressurizing the air entering the nose. Sometimes, if these structures grow, there may be a health problem called "turbinate hypertrophy" which causes increased airway resistance in the nose. Patients may result in abnormal increase in intranasal airway resistance and nasal obstruction. In this case, applications such as radiofrequency and laser are made in order to reduce the volume of turbinate in modern techniques respecting anatomy. In addition, if these tissues are abnormally reduced or surgically removed, an abnormal airway dilation occurs within the nose, and pain may occur as a result of drying, structural changes and nerve end damage in the nasal mucosa due to contact with accelerated airflow. In patients whose turbinates are completely remo…

Nasal Dryness Can Reduce Nasal Septum Perforation Closure Success!

If there is a hole in your nasal septum, please keep the inside of the nose moist!
Nasal septum perforation definition Septum perforation; refers to subsequent holes in the nasal septum consisting of bone at the back and cartilage in the front that divide the nasal cavity in two. The most common cause of septum perforation is the negativity that occurs after the nasal surgery. It is usually a complication that can be seen around 1% after septoplasty operations. Perforation of the septum after nasal surgery is a distressing situation for both the patient and the physician. In addition to nose surgeries, septum perforation may occur due to nasal trauma, various infections and rarely oncological diseases. Cocaine users may also develop septum perforation. A recently published scientific study on the subject >> Risk factors for nasal septal perforation after septoplasty operation
Classification according to the size of nasal septum perforation Septum perforations are examined in 3 …

My Patient is Returning To Canada One Week After The Ethnic Revision Rhinoplasty Operation in Istanbul

Image
My patient who came from Canada for revision nose aesthetic surgery, and silicone implant removal in Istanbul.  It was a different experience for me. Normally, as the anatomy changes, surgery becomes more difficult. Thick skin characteristics, anatomical changes due to revision nasal surgery, and additionally the removal of an artificial industrial tissue inserted into the nose made it a difficult operation in general. There was a natural nose that felt right at us. We did not use a nasal tampon and the photograph was from the day before (postoperative 6th day). We have placed cartilage grafts in different areas of the tip of the nose and there is no sagging at the tip of the nose while laughing. 3D-generated nasal silicone implants are used, especially in the far east and in patients planning augmentation rhinoplasty. I don't prefer it because of the high risk of tissue reaction. She is returning to his country one week after the surgery. Thank you to my patient for her present …

Assesment of Tissue Circulation / Perfusion Before The Revision Rhinoplasty

Inadequate tissue perfusion risk in revision nose job surgeries 
Especially in patients with recurrent rhinoplasty surgeries, tissue perfusion problems may occur, even if it is a rare condition, the risk of circulatory problems should not be ignored in patients undergoing revision rhinoplasty surgery. Inadequate tissue perfusion can cause unwanted infection and tissue loss in revision rhinoplasty operations.

Inadequate blood circulation may cause subcutaneous and cartilage necrosis. Although revision rhinoplasty is the basis for the evaluation of perfusion in patients undergoing clinical examination, ischemic problems may not always be predictable.

In a recent scientific study entitled "Unique Uses of SPY: Revision Rhinoplasty", it was shown that the SPY Elite laser angiographic system, which is widely used to analyze preoperative perfusion, can objectively evaluate tissue perfusion. We present a case of revised rhinoplasty with hypoperfusion of the nasal tip after placement…
