Postencephalitic parkinsonism is characterized neuropathologically by severe loss of pigmented neurons in the substantia nigra and the presence of high densities of neurofibrillary tangles in several brainstem structures. In 5 cases of postencephalitic parkinsonism, we observed that the neurofibrillary tangle distribution in the cerebral cortex predominated(More)
The facial nerve is responsible for the motor innervation of the face. It has a visceral motor function (lacrimal, submandibular, sublingual glands and secretion of the nose); it conveys a great part of the taste fibers, participates to the general sensory of the auricle (skin of the concha) and the wall of the external auditory meatus. The facial mimic,(More)
OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS Assessment of immediate postoperative airway humidification after total laryngectomy (TLE), comparing the use of an external humidifier (EH) with humidification through a heat and moisture exchanger (HME). STUDY DESIGN Randomized controlled trial (RCT). METHODS Fifty-three patients were randomized into the standard (control) EH (N(More)
We report a case of cervical necrotizing fasciitis (NF) with severe sepsis occurring 8 hours after a banal dental extraction in a healthy adult. A 44-year-old man was admitted for cervical NF and severe sepsis in the emergency department. An early diagnosis was based on clinical examination (violent pain, swelling of face, and crepitation), confirmed by(More)
OBJECTIVES To analyze the results obtained in the total implanted population in Strasbourg, in order to assess the reliability of this technique over the long-term, especially in children and in irradiated patients. METHODS This is a retrospective study including all the cases of cranio-facial epitheses implanted in the department of Otorhinolaryngology,(More)
OBJECTIVES To assess the contribution of preoperative caloric responses in patients with vestibular schwannoma on the following: preoperative parameters and postoperative results (facial function and hearing preservation). STUDY DESIGN Retrospective review of prospectively collected data. SETTING Tertiary referral center. PATIENTS A group of 629(More)
Authors report the development of a biomaterial to be used for tracheal and laryngeal reconstruction. This experimentation follows the replacement of trachea in rats with porous titanium implants. The aim of the study is to test this type of prosthesis on sheep, whose trachea is of comparable size to that of humans. Six ewes were implanted with porous(More)
Head and neck paragangliomas (HNPGLs) can relapse after primary treatment. Optimal imaging protocols have not yet been established for posttreatment evaluation. The aim of the present study was to assess the diagnostic value of 18F-FDOPA PET/CT and MR/CT angiography (MRA/CTA) in HNPGL patients with clinical relapse during their follow-up. Sixteen(More)
OBJECTIVES The objective of the present study was to test the hypothesis that acute submaxillitis involves salivary duct obstruction. Obstacle characteristics and treatment were analyzed. MATERIAL AND METHODS Patients presenting with an episode of acute submaxillitis between 2009 and 2015 were retrospectively included. All underwent salivary duct imaging(More)
