This study assessed the clinical efficacy of screening for noise induced hearing loss (NIHL) with distortion product otoacoustic emissions (DPOAE). DPOAEs were recorded from 76 military personnel (137 ears) aged between 17 and 41 years in response to equilevel 70 dB SPL primary stimulating tones. The 2f1-f2 DPOAE levels were correlated with audiometric(More)
The association between audiometric hearing thresholds and click-evoked otoacoustic emission (CEOAE) spectral properties was examined in 129 adult subjects with and without a noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL). Subjects were grouped according to their "beginning of hearing loss frequency" and their exposure to hazardous noise. Emissions were recorded with an(More)
Metabolic abnormalities arising from malnutrition and malignancy are seen in patients with cancer cachexia. To discriminate between the effects of pure malnutrition and tumour-specific metabolic alterations, the kinetics of whole-body metabolism were determined in 7 untreated, malnourished cancer patients and in 11 patients with benign disease, also(More)
The role of the auditory brainstem in tinnitus is questionable. This study aimed comprehensively to assess auditory brainstem responses (ABRs) in patients suffering from noise-induced tinnitus (NIT). ABRs were recorded from 13 chronic NIT patients (21 ears) and 11 (21 ears) age and hearing matched control subjects without tinnitus. ABRs were recorded with(More)
Two siblings are reported who developed classical signs and symptoms of Parkinsonism in the first decade of life. In addition, they had evidence of cortical spinal tract disease, thus putting them in the category of Davison's pallido-pyramidal syndrome. Both deteriorated to the point of a non-productive existence until the institution of levodopa treatment,(More)
IMPORTANCE Transnasal fiberoptic laryngoscopy (TFL) has been used to guide various in-office procedures for the past 3 decades. Publications on in-office laryngeal biopsy have concurred that this procedure is safe, feasible, and easy to perform. However, the accuracy of in-office biopsy via TFL has not yet been established. The aim of this study was to(More)
BACKGROUND We report an unusual case of a 66-year-old female with a suspicious thoracic outlet mass presenting with severe biochemical hyperparathyroidism and classic hypercalcemic symptoms of renal and bone involvement. CASE PRESENTATION There was clinical suspicion for parathyroid carcinoma, further supported by intra-operative findings. However, the(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe a novel radiographic sign ("halo") and a new classification method of an evolving perisigmoid epidural abscess and present its correlation with intraoperative findings. STUDY DESIGN Retrospective and prospective cohort study in a tertiary academic children's hospital. METHODS The retrospective arm (15 children) was conducted(More)
BACKGROUND Head and Neck Parapharyngeal space tumors are rare. Pleomorphic Adenomas are the most common Parapharyngeal space tumors. The purpose of this study was to define preoperative criteria for enabling full extirpation of parapharyngeal space pleomorphic adenomas via the transcervical approach while minimizing functional and cosmetic morbidity.
