The criteria by which the operative approaches to craniopharyngioma are chosen are still controversial. The authors performed a retrospective analysis in 32 patients with craniopharyngioma who were surgically treated. Results of neurological and psychological tests administered during the follow-up period were correlated with the surgical approach. On the(More)
The present study aimed at analyzing and comparing longitudinally the EMG (electromyographic activity) of the superior orbicularis oris muscle according to the breathing mode. The sample, 38 adolescents with Angle Class II Division 1 malocclusion with predominantly nose (PNB) or mouth (PMB) breathing, was evaluated at two different periods, with a two-year(More)
The authors reviewed the electroencephalographic findings relevant to a casuistry of 136 cerebral tumours in paediatric age and correlated them with the anatomic site of the neoplasias, as checked on the operating table, and with clinical symptomatology. The casuistry, as concerns the site of the tumours, consists of 32 cases with a hemispheric(More)
The diagnostic features of CT images of the spine are constantly influenced by some limitations of the method because of the peculiar configuration of the human spine. Recent generations of CT scanners greatly improve the results but with the second generation (Acta 0200 FS Pfizer Scanner) we have been able to develop a modified scan reconstruction method(More)
In order to evaluate the relationship between the morphology of the upper lip and muscle activity in a sample of 38 subjects (17 males and 21 females) with Angle Class II division 1 malocclusions, cephalometric and electromyographic analyses were conducted. The sample was subdivided into either predominantly nose or mouth breathers. The individuals were(More)
The Authors describe their experience in investigating the functioning and patency of ventriculo-venous shunts in hydrocephalic patients. They examined 41 hydrocephalic children with Pudenz valves, with radioisotope techniques. The radioactive tracers were administered by the lumbar route, by the ventricular route, or directly into the shunt. For lumbar or(More)
Medulloblastoma constituted 28% of brain neoplasms among children referred to the Santobono Children's Hospital of Naples from 1973 through October 1984. The authors summarize their experience with 68 cases of medulloblastoma, which were managed with a multimodal institutional protocol involving surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy. The evolution of(More)
