Treatment of Ankyloglosia with Coblation Assisted Surgery

Ankyloglossia is a disease characterized by difficulty in breast-feeding, limitation of tongue, and speech disorders. Prevalence of the disease is %1-10 in the literature (1). Cold knife, Laser surgery, electro cautery methods are used in the surgical treatment of the disease. Coblation radiofrequency technology provides low temperature work with minimal damage to neighborhood tissues. We present a 21 years old male with ankyloglossia treated by coblation surgery in the lights of the literature.

Adenocarcinoma of Ceruminous Glands: Role of the VMAT

Adenocarcinoma of the ceruminous glands is a rare malignancy arising from the glands of the external auditory canal. In most patients it is usually diagnosed as locally advanced disease with a major obstacle for radical surgery. Here, we describe two cases of patients suffering of sudden hearing loss and ipsilateral facial hemiparesis due to tumors arising from the ceruminous glands with primary intracranial involvement and subsequent middle ear infiltration. The patient with local-advanced disease underwent surgery followed by adjuvant treatment, whereas the other patient with advanced disease only to palliative therapy.
