Pontine tegmental cap dysplasia (PTCD) is an exceptionally rare brain stem and cerebellar malformation characterized by ventral pontine hypoplasia, vaulted pontine tegmentum, hypoplasia of the vermis, subtotal absence of middle cerebellar peduncles, lateralized course of the superior cerebellar peduncles, and absence or alteration of the inferior olivary(More)
OBJECTIVE To analyze the closure time of diode laser-assisted myringotomies, the incidence of complications, and the hearing results in comparison with the "cold" procedure in adults with otitis media with effusion (OME). STUDY DESIGN Prospective case-control study. SETTING Tertiary referral center, university hospital. PATIENTS Twenty-eight adult(More)
Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumors include a diverse group of lesions characterized by inflammatory cell infiltration and variable fibrotic responses. Occurrence in the temporal bone is unusual. We present CT and MR imaging findings of an inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor of the temporal bone in a 26-year-old patient with repeated paroxystic episodes of(More)
BACKGROUND The efficacy of intratympanic steroid (ITS) treatment in sudden deafness (SD) remains controversial. To shed light on this issue, we performed a systematic review of randomized controlled trials to assess the overall efficacy of ITS therapy and to clarify whether it is more suitable as a first-line approach (primary treatment) or as a salvage(More)
OBJECTIVES To report of a 65-year-old woman with bilateral Meniere's disease was referred for cochlear implantation (CI) due to severe/profound sensorineural hearing loss. METHODS During the assessment workup, a vestibular schwannoma in the right ear was found by MR imaging. She underwent a translabyrinthine removal of the acoustic neuroma (AN) with(More)
In this clinical note we discuss the indications, feasibility, and outcomes of binaural simultaneous cochlear implantation (CI) following bilateral transverse temporal bone (TB) fractures. A 41-year-old male, totally deaf after a bilateral TB fracture, underwent an audiological, electrophysiological, and imaging investigation in order to assess the(More)
BACKGROUND Beef cows herd accounts for 70% of the total energy used in the beef production system. However, there are still limited studies regarding improvement of production efficiency in this category, mainly in developing countries and in tropical areas. One of the limiting factors is the difficulty to obtain reliable estimates of weight variation in(More)
The objective of this study was to evaluate the effect of five feeding strategies on calf weaning weight, and cow milk production and composition in Brazilian Holstein × Zebu cows. A total of 60 cows and their calves were allocated to each of five treatments. Cows in treatments 1, 2 and 3 were milked for 270 days and cows in treatments 4 and 5 were milked(More)
The objectives of this study were to evaluate the dry matter intake (DMI), digestibility, average daily gain (ADG), microbial efficiency, empty body weight (EBW) gain, and body composition of Nellore bulls. Additionally, Nellore bull maturity was estimated, and the prediction equation for DMI, suggested by the Brazilian nutrient requirements system (BR(More)
