Localization of basic fibroblast growth factor in cholesteatoma matrix; an immunochemical study
Abstract: Objectives; to investigate the expression of b-FGF in the matrix of human acquired cholesteatoma compared to the deep meatal skin. To our knowledge, this topic has not been fully investigated before. Materials and methods; an immunochemical study was employed. Cholesteatoma tissues from adult patients were collected during surgery (n=19). Control specimens were taken from the deep meatal skin (n=8) ... Read more
