The aim of this study was to define the value of MRI of the pancreas for preoperative local staging of patients with a suspected pancreatic mass. Ninety-four patients (41 women, 53 men; age range 32–87 years) with a suspected pancreatic tumor underwent preoperative staging with MRI on a 1.5-T system. The MRI protocol included breath-hold MR(More)
This study aimed to compare the neural correlates of acoustic stimulus representation in the auditory sensory memory on an automatic basis between tinnitus subjects and normal hearing (NH) controls, using topographical maps of the MMNs obtained with the multi-feature paradigm. A new and faster paradigm was adopted to look for differences between 2 groups of(More)
Ongoing clinical studies on patients recently implanted with the auditory midbrain implant (AMI) into the inferior colliculus (IC) for hearing restoration have shown that these patients do not achieve performance levels comparable to cochlear implant patients. The AMI consists of a single-shank array (20 electrodes) for stimulation along the tonotopic axis(More)
INTRODUCTION Residual inhibition (RI) is the temporary inhibition of tinnitus by use of masking stimuli when the device is turned off. OBJECTIVE The main aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of RI induced by auditory electrical stimulation (AES) in the primary auditory pathways using early auditory-evoked potentials (AEPs) in subjective(More)
A total of 58 cases of fatal trauma (forensic autopsies) were investigated for lesions of the pelvic girdle, the pubic symphysis, and for injuries distant from the pelvis. Traumata of the pubic symphysis were present in 30% (n = 17) of the cases. The symphyses were examined by x-ray and macroscopically related to the main violence (Abbreviated Injury Scale(More)
