We report a case of solitary metastasis of lung carcinoma into the internal auditory canal. On admission, the 60-year-old patient was complaining about a rapidly developing hearing loss with ipsilateral facial nerve paralysis. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed an intracanalicular tumor, which was interpreted as vestibular schwannoma. After tumor(More)
Management of life-threatening postsurgical bleeding is complex. If conservative or surgical therapy is demanding, an endovascular treatment can be considered. The goal of this study was to evaluate the outcome of endovascular approaches in the diagnosis and therapy of otherwise intractable postoperative haemorrhages with a study design of outcomes(More)
Sudden sensorineural hearing loss is a symptom of cochlear injury. Potential aetiologies are vascular diseases, viral infections, allergic reactions, autoimmune disorders, and traumatic rupture of the intralabyrinthe membrane. Unlike in unilateral cases bilateral sensorineural hearing loss is often associated with specific disease entities. We report a case(More)
Tonsillectomy is a frequently performed surgical procedure in children and adults. Postoperative bleeding is the most severe complication; however, the factors leading to postoperative haemorrhage are still discussed controversially. 1,522 tonsillectomies were retrospectively reviewed. Histopathological tonsil composition was correlated with the incidence(More)
Recently, the fibroblast growth factor receptor 1 (FGFR1) has been identified as the first actionable target in squamous cell lung cancer. Clinical trials testing specific FGFR inhibitors are in progress, and patients are selected based on their FGFR1 gene copy number status. Fluorescent in situ hybridization is the most commonly used method for detecting(More)
