Magnocellular neuroendocrine cells of the supraoptic nucleus (SON) release vasopressin (VP) systemically and locally during osmotic challenge. Although both central VP and nitric oxide (NO) release appear to reduce osmotically stimulated systemic VP release, it is unknown whether they interact locally in the SON to enhance somatodendritic release of VP, a(More)
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is increasingly used in the assessment of the severity and progression of neurotrauma. We evaluated temporal and regional changes after mild fluid percussion (FPI) and controlled cortical impact (CCI) injury using T2-weighted-imaging (T2WI) and diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) MRI over 7 days. Region of interest analysis of(More)
Sinonasal surgery has always been a potential source of complications. Most legal suits involving endoscopic sinus surgery alleged lack of informed consent. In this article, the authors discuss what informed consent means, to the physician and the patient, and how it is relevant in the case of complications. They also explain that patient communication is(More)
Iron is a trace metal essential for normal brain development but toxic in excess as it is capable of generating highly reactive radicals that damage cells and tissue. Iron is stringently regulated by the iron regulatory proteins, IRP1 and IRP2, which regulate proteins involved in iron homeostasis at the posttranscriptional level. In this study, 12 distinct(More)
OBJECTIVE The minimally invasive video-assisted thyroidectomy technique has slowly gained acceptance. Previous studies have reported advantages of better cosmetic results and faster postoperative recovery. We report preliminary results from our single assistant technique over the initial two years of inception at an academic training center. METHODS This(More)
CONCLUSION Our findings show that all cochlear implanted temporal bones had a varied degree of trauma and inflammatory reaction from cochlear implantation. No definitive relationship was observed from our limited number of specimens between residual spiral ganglion cells (SGCs) in implanted temporal bones and clinical speech performance. OBJECTIVES We(More)
Cholesteatomas, classified as acquired or congenital, are non-neoplastic, keratinizing squamous epithelial lesions that can affect many different areas of the temporal bone. We present a case of a six-month-old female with chronic otorrhea who was found to have a congenital cholesteatoma originating from the Eustachian tube. Chronic pressure from(More)
Foreign bodies that penetrate the esophagus and migrate extraluminally are unusual. If they are left untreated, serious complications arise from mediastinitis, and damage to the major structures in the neck can occur. We report a case of a patient who presented with chest pain on inspiration that was found to be caused by a foreign body in the(More)
