OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate the results of stapes surgery after 20 years of follow-up and to compare the results between large fenestra versus small fenestra stapedotomy. STUDY DESIGN Retrospective clinical study. SETTING Tertiary referral center (university hospital). PATIENTS One hundred forty-two patients with otosclerosis(More)
Venous malformations of the jugular veins are rare findings. Aneurysms and phlebectasias are the lesions most often reported. We report on an adult patient with an abruptly appearing large tumorous mass on the left side of the neck identified as a jugular vein aneurysm. Upon clinical examination with ultrasound, a lateral neck cyst was primarily suspected.(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate and compare the spin lock and magnetization transfer techniques in the differentiation of benign and malignant head and neck tumors at magnetic resonance (MR) imaging. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty consecutive patients with histologically verified head and neck tumors (20 malignant and 20 benign tumors, including five infections) were(More)
Bleomycin (BLM) is a well known natural antibiotic. It is toxic to dividing cells and has been used for the treatment of several forms of cancer. BLM has been labeled with various cations, but most of them have turned out be unstable in in-vivo experiments. In-BLM demonstrated high bone marrow uptake, but using 111In-bleomycin complex (BLMC) formed at low(More)
Twenty-nine consecutive patients with a palpable unilateral tumor in the parotid gland region had scintigraphy 22-28 hr after they were injected with 111In-labeled monoclonal anti-carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) antibody (F023C5). Two patients were imaged at 48 hr also, and one patient was imaged additionally with single-photon emission CT. Twenty-seven of(More)
The potential of T1 rho dispersion, spin lock (SL), and magnetization transfer (MT) techniques to differentiate benign and malignant head and neck tumors was evaluated. Twenty-four patients with pathologically verified head and neck tumors were studied with a .1-T MR imager. T1 rho dispersion effect was defined as 1 -(intensity with lower locking field(More)
BACKGROUND Of the acquired ear canal atresias, idiopathic, inflammatory, medial meatal, fibrotising otitis has been suggested as a distinct disease entity, for reasons of aetiology. OBJECTIVE To report three more cases of idiopathic, inflammatory, medial meatal, fibrotising otitis and to further consider the possible relationship between this condition(More)
Velocardiofacial syndrome and DiGeorge syndrome, integrating to form the 22q11.2 deletion syndrome, manifest frequently with hearing loss. Instead, a labyrinthine anomaly is only occasionally described in velocardiofacial syndrome/DiGeorge syndrome. We report a vestibular labyrinthine malformation demonstrated with computed tomographic scan in a patient(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aimed to evaluate the diagnostic value of radioimmunoimaging by radionuclide-labeled monoclonal antibody F023C5 (MAb), raised originally against carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA), in patients with glomus tympanicum tumors. STUDY DESIGN Prospective. SETTING Preoperative imaging versus radioactivity of removed tumor. PATIENTS Two(More)
