Arytenoid Adduction Combined With Gore‐Tex Medialization Thyroplasty
The technique of combined Gore‐Tex medialization thyroplasty with arytenoid adduction is described and the long‐term vocal outcome of patients treated for unilateral vocal cord paralysis with this procedure is determined. Expand
Suprasellar meningiomas: the effect of tumor location on postoperative visual outcome.
Overall, 42% of patients had improved vision postoperatively, 30% remained unchanged, and 28% were worse, after a mean follow-up period of 38 months. Expand
Long‐Term Follow‐up of Fat Injection Laryngoplasty for Unilateral Vocal Cord Paralysis
Objective The objective of the study was to evaluate the results of autologous fat injection laryngoplasty in the long‐term management of unilateral vocal cord paralysis.
Facial dysostoses: Etiology, pathogenesis and management
Recent advances in the understanding of the development of facial dysostosis are described with a view towards early in utero identification and intervention which could minimize the manifestation of anomalies prior to birth. Expand
Stroke associated with cocaine use.
The data indicate that the apparent incidence of stroke related to cocaine use is increasing, cocaine-associated stroke occurs primarily in young adults, and stroke may follow any route of cocaine administration. Expand
Neurological complications of liver transplantation in adult versus pediatric patients.
Reviewing patients who underwent 427 consecutive orthotopic liver transplantations found neurological complications after liver transplantation are more common in adults, more severe and associated with a higher mortality rate in children, and associated in both children and adults when compared with transplant recipients without neurological complications.

The effect of intracerebral hematoma location on the risk of brain-stem compression and on clinical outcome.
Patients with temporal or temporoparietal hematoma appear to be at greater risk of brain-stem compression, especially if the lesion is larger than 30 cc and caused by head injury, than are those with hematomas in other sites. Expand
Intradural arachnoid cysts of the spinal canal associated with intramedullary cysts.
Five patients had intradural arachnoid cysts of the thoracic spinal canal associated with syringomyelia or posttraumatic intramedullary spinal cord cysts, and either or both lesions may cause delayed neurological deterioration. Expand
Protection of the Temporomandibular Joint during Syndromic Neonatal Mandibular Distraction using Condylar Unloading
Background: Neonatal distraction in severe micrognathia patients may alleviate the need for tracheostomy. The authors' objectives in evaluating syndromic neonatal distraction cases were to: (1)Expand
Randomized trial comparing diathermy hemorrhoidectomy with the scissor dissection Milligan-Morgan operation
Diathermy hemorrhoidectomy has no significant advantage over the scissor dissection classical Milligan-Morgan hemorrhoids, and no significant difference was found in the postoperative pain score. Expand
