The classification and the most appropriate treatment of dysplastic lesions of the larynx continue to be controversial issues. Aim of present study was to evaluate the incidence of precancerous lesions of larynx, their potential to evolve in relation to grade of dysplasia, and the most appropriate treatment. The study is based on the review of a series of(More)
In this double-blind, randomized study, five healthy subjects per group received doses of 15, 20, or 25 mg of teicoplanin per kg of body weight, and one subject per group received a 0.9% NaCl placebo as single intravenous infusion over 30 min. Serial blood samples and urine were collected for 13 days postadministration, and concentrations of teicoplanin(More)
OBJECTIVES Epistaxis represents one of the most common ENT emergencies. In this paper, the authors report their experience in treating some cases of severe epistaxis by super-selective embolization of the afferent vessels of the nasal fossae. PATIENTS AND METHODS A retrospective study of 22 patients with severe recurrent epistaxis (1 anterior and 21(More)
Aim of this study was to examine possible relationships between several clinical aspects of paroxysmal positional vertigo and factors better defined as "intrinsic" to the patient, above all age. The disorder can affect essentially all age groups; nevertheless, the onset of age-linked degenerative processes, such as vascular damage, can have a negative(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effects of a specific aspect of the acquisition procedure, the averaging technique, on the evaluation of click-evoked otoacoustic emissions (CEOAEs) in newborns. DESIGN CEOAEs were recorded by an Otodynamic ILO88 system from 89 full-term newborns at the third day after delivery. For each ear and in the same test session,(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of the study was to investigate the occurrence of equilibrium disturbances in headache patients, during the interictal period, by computerized static stabilometry. MATERIALS AND METHODS Sixty-seven patients were studied: 35 with migraine without aura (MwoA), 12 with tension-type headache (TTH) in the episodic form (ETTH) + MwoA, and 20(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the cochlear function in patients with diabetes mellitus by analysis of evoked otoacoustic emissions (EOAE). EOAE were studied in 20 diabetic patients with normal hearing. The parameters used for analysis were the EOAE intensity and amplitude measured per 100 Hz frequency bands between 700 and 4000 Hz These data(More)
If all degrees of permanent uni- or bilateral hypoacusis are taken into consideration, hearing impairment is the most common congenital disease. Early detection of permanent infantile hearing impairment has become extremely important in preventive medicine, since steps can be taken with hearing aids and rehabilitation to ensure better development of(More)
The authors have studied auditory brainstem responses (ABR) in 33 full-term newborns at 0-9, 10-30, 31-58 h, in order to evaluate changes in the first hours after birth, particularly in relation to different repetition rates and recording procedures. The data obtained show that the characteristic newborn 3-peak tracing is observed in almost all the cases at(More)
132 patients with chronic maxillary sinusitis were included in this bacteriological study of the intrasinus exudate obtained by a radical antrostomy or antral puncture. We found 78.3% aerobes, 21.7% anaerobes, 51.5% gram positive and 48.5% gram negative micro-organisms, but no fungi in 120 cultures. The commonest aerobic species was Haemophylus (20%),(More)
