The clinical characteristics, diagnostic criteria, and therapeutic problems are discussed and reviewed in the… (More)
A case of osteoma of the ethmoidal sinuses associated with nasal polyposis was treated by endoscopic nasal surgery. The pathophysiology of both diseases is reviewed. The therapeutic strategy is described and the bibliography is reviewed.
We have made a study about different cases of non-invasive fungal sinusitis (FS) treated at our hospital with surgery (endoscopic sinus approach) and medical treatment. We review two cases: Mycetoma and allergic fungal sinusitis, following the recent classification based on physiopathology, treatment and prognosis. We review the clinical presentation of the… (More)
The AA. present a review of the expansive processes of the cerebellopontine angle (CPA) diagnosed at their Department, during the six last years. Emphasis is made upon the clinic findings gained through neuro-otological explorations and imaging, both helpful for preoperative diagnosis of the nature of the tumor.

A study of the objective evaluation of voice was made of 100 voices of healthy adults and 60 with disphonia (nodules and polyps). A laryngostroboscopy and an acoustic analysis was made to everyone. A sustained vowel "a" was carried out and digitalized with Dr. Speech Science software. These parameters were estimated: fundamental frequency (Fo, according to… (More)
