In a proportion of small acoustic neuroma patients, monitoring with magnetic resonance imaging shows no volumetric increase of tumour size over the years. The object of the study was to identify some indications for the clinical choice between immediate surgery (with the related risks) and watchful waiting. We performed a retrospective study of 47(More)
A 66-year-old woman was referred with left hearing loss. A probable diagnosis of left secretory otitis media with effusion was formulated. A left myringotomy was performed to remove hyperplastic hard tissue from the tympanic cavity. A high resolution CT scan of the temporal bone disclosed a soft-tissue mass completely involving the mastoid and tympanic(More)
OBJECTIVE We investigated cochlear function in a group of patients affected by vestibular schwannoma (VS), by means of recording distortion-product otoacoustic emissions (DPOAEs). METHODS Between January 1996 and January 2007, we observed 183 patients affected by unilateral VS. DPOAEs, compared to the corresponding hearing thresholds, were subjectively(More)
Surgical treatment for retro-lingual obstruction in patients suffering from obstructive sleep apnea syndrome remains a problem for which there is no simple solution. The techniques most in use (tongue suspension, genioglossal advancement with hyoid suspension) are effective primarily as stabilization methods modifying neither tongue position, nor volume and(More)
TTSs produced by short (500-1000 msec) pure frequency (2000, 3000, 4000 c.p.s.) tones on normal young subjects show, under comparable conditions, the same essential characteristics as TTSs which follow longer stimulations. In particular, they show a tendency to a displacement of their maximal values, as soon as the stimulating tone is presented at(More)
