OBJECTIVE To assess the role of inferior colliculi as a generator of Wave V of brainstem auditory evoked potentials and in modulating the olivocochlear efferent auditory system. STUDY DESIGN Case review. SETTING University and tertiary referral centers. PATIENTS Case report of a patient with word deafness caused by mesencephalic hemorrhage according(More)
PURPOSE To compare the measured resection technique and the gap balancing technique for correction of the femoral rotational alignment. METHODS 57 women and 6 men (mean age, 70 years) with end-stage osteoarthritis and <15º malalignment and <10º flexion contracture of the knee underwent primary total knee arthroplasty through the medial approach using the(More)
BACKGROUND Lung cancer is the second commonest malignant tumour, with its splenic metastasis being a rare event. CASE PRESENTATION We report an exceedingly rare case of a moderate-to-low differentiation squamous cell lung carcinoma in a middle-aged man with a large solitary splenic metastasis detected simultaneously with the primary tumour. Surgical(More)
Treacher-Collins syndrome or mandibulofacial dysostosis is an autosomal dominant disorder of craniofacial development. In this familial syndrome there is an arrest in the development of the facial bones, manifested by a depression of the malar bones, an antimonogoloid slant of the palpebral fissures, mandibular hypoplasia with retrognathia, coloboma of the(More)
Twenty-three patients with an arachnoid cyst in the frontal part of the temporal bone, which produced exopthtalmos, were evaluated with CT and MRI. The majority of the patients had the peak of the bowing of the bony orbit wall in the posterior third (20/23) and only three in the middle. Arachnoid cyst are classified as small (13/23), medium (5/23) or large(More)
Sprengel shoulder is a rare congenital deformity of one or both scapulae that is usually detected at birth. It occurs due to failure of the scapula to descend during intrauterine development and its cause is still unknown. Although the deformity appears randomly most of the time, familial cases have been reported. Sprengel shoulder is often associated with(More)
During the last years imaging techniques have rapidly developed in anatomy since they were included in the study of the human body. Normal patterns have been revisited and lately, in the era of evidence-based medicine, anatomy has shifted towards evidence-based morphology. Endoscopic and minimally invasive techniques require a different view and a better(More)
Although meniscofemoral ligaments are distinct anatomic units, their anatomy and function are controversial from an anatomic and radiologic point of view. Five hundred knee MR examinations were retrospectively studied in an effort to demonstrate the incidence and variations regarding sex and age distribution, as well as the anatomy of the meniscofemoral(More)
We assess the role of ultrasonography (US) in the evaluation of retinal detachment in patients with uveal melanomas, in correlation with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings. Twenty-six patients (13♂ and 13♀) with uveal melanomas underwent MRI and US examination. The signal intensity of the tumors and retinal detachments were depicted using MRI. The(More)
Cavernous hemangioma is the most common intraorbital lesion in adults. The aim of our study was to evaluate the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ultrasound (US) characteristics of cavernous hemangioma and their role in the differential diagnosis of orbital tumors. Eight patients with orbital cavernous hemangiomas, five women and three men with a mean(More)
