The evaluation of functional deglutition in patients after partial supraglottic laryngectomy by CO(2) laser was performed by videofluoroscopy of the swallowing act. We studied 20 patients in PA and LL projections, and the swallowing act, at 25 frames per s, was captured on videotape. Aspiration was found in six patients, four of whom had manifest clinical… (More)
To date, about 100 cases of a blind-ending branch of a bifid ureter have been reported. We present 13 clinically, radiologically and histologically evaluated cases of congenital ureteric diverticulum. We believe this anomaly is not as rare as hitherto believed and suggest the term congenital ureteric diverticulum for a blind-ending branch of a bifid ureter.
Videofluoroscopy of swallowing was performed in 21 patients who had undergone partial horizontal laryngectomy. Food residues were present in most of these patients. Residues of liquid contrast were observed in 85.7% of the patients and residues of consistent contrast in 61.5% of the patients. In most cases, food remnants were to be found in the… (More)
