OBJECTIVE To assess the association between pathogenic bacteria found in bronchoalveolar lavages and paranasal cavity cultures in patients with cystic fibrosis (CF) who underwent endonasal endoscopic sinus surgery. The authors hypothesized that the pathogenic bacterial pattern of the upper airway would be associated with that of the lower airway. STUDY(More)
We report on 113 multichannel intracochlear implantations. Although the surgical approach has evolved as a result of new implant designs, one essential step has remained, namely initial exploratory tympanotomy. This 15-min procedure allows direct anatomical assessment and work in the middle ear. After direct exposure, the lip of the niche is removed and the(More)
bacteriológico de los niños sometidos a cirugía en nuestro medio.demia Americana de Otorrinolaringología y Cirugía de Cabeza y Cuello (AAO) elaboró una lista de sínto-mas y signos clínicos (hechos) para realizar el diag-nóstico de RS, considerando necesaria la presencia de al menos 2 factores mayores, o uno mayor y 2 menores. Los hechos mayores son dolor(More)
The auditory brainstem response generated by clicks was studied in 119 normal newborns. One ear was studied in detail at 20, 40 and 60 dBnHL, the other at 20 and 30 dBnHL, increasing the intensity if no response was found. The latency for waves I, III and V in the detailed studied ear was 2.7 +/- .39, 5.4 +/- .44 and 7.7 +/- .48, respectively. 85% of(More)
We present the case of a premature female patient, carrier of profound bilateral congenital sensorineural hearing loss. At 16 months a Nucleus Contour Advance was implanted in the right ear using posterior tympanotomy with opening of the facial recess and minimum drilling of the back wall of the external auditory canal (EAC). At the second year of evolution(More)

INTRODUCTION Chronic rhinosinusitis is very common in patients with cystic fibrosis. This can be explained by the unified airway concept, where the same pathophysiological phenomenon that affects the lungs, affects the paranasal sinuses. The management of these cases is difficult. OBJECTIVE To describe the teamwork of otolaryngologists and(More)
