The disorder of hyperpatent eustachian tube is often unrecognized or misdiagnosed because of the ambiguous symptom of a "plugged ear." But when the patient also complains of autophony and/or hearing amphoric sounds, a patulous tube should be suspected. Persistent symptoms are distressing to most patients. This preliminary report evaluates a new nasal(More)
PURPOSE Measurement of cerebral blood flow is routinely used to locate the areas involved in generation and spread of seizures in epilepsy patients. Because the nature of the hyperperfused regions varies with the timing of injection of tracer, in this study, we used a rat model of maximal electroshock seizures to follow up the time-dependent changes in the(More)
Marie Unna congenital hypotrichosis (MUCH) is a rare autosomal dominant condition in which abnormalities are confined to hair shaft structure and hair density. We report a six-generation pedigree consisting of 59 members of whom 16 are affected; nine identified affected individuals are living. Affected individuals are born with adequate, normal to coarse(More)
Norms and test-retest data from 20 persons with normal hearing and balance function were obtained for bithermal caloric (BC) using a closed-loop irrigator, sinusoidal harmonic acceleration (SHA) and active head rotation (AHR) tests. Each subject was tested twice with each test, with at least 24 hours between retest. Results of BC testing indicate that a(More)
The patulous, or nonclosing, eustachian tube is believed to affect as many as 7 percent of all adults, causing physical and psychological difficulties. This paper provides a brief review of the literature regarding the patulous eustachian tube (PET), its symptoms, precipitating conditions, incidence, diagnosis, and current medical management. Several case(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine normal caloric responses and test-retest correlations of caloric responses in a group of otologically normal persons using an open-loop caloric irrigation system. STUDY DESIGN An open-loop bithermal caloric irrigator was used to obtain maximum slow component speed caloric responses of healthy young persons with a repeat caloric test(More)
Light microscopic sections of Epon-embedded bull penis were examined for nerve endings. Tissue was taken from the dorsal midline of the glans penis and from the free portion of the penis in 6 mature bulls. Genital end bulbs were identified in both regions of the penis and were located from 1 to 500 micron beneath the epithelium, with most end bulbs(More)
More and more, hyperspectral images are envisaged to improve the aerial reconnaissance capability of airborne systems, both for civilian and military applications. To confirm the hopes put in this new way of imaging a scene, it is necessary to develop airborne systems allowing the measurement of the spectral signatures of objects of interest in real(More)
