Translabyrin-thine approach to skull base tumors with hearing preservation. evoked myogenic potentials and distortion-product otoacoustic emissions combined with glycerol testing in endolymphatic hy-drops: their value in early diagnosis. Dear Editor, Tympanic membrane (TM) perforation is most commonly a result of infection, trauma, or the sequelae of(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the correlation between the enlarged vestibular aqueduct (EVA) diameter and (1) the hearing loss level (mild, moderate, severe and profound and (2) the hearing evolution. The secondary objective was to obtain measurement limits on the coronal plane of the temporal bone CT scan for the diagnosis of EVA. METHODS Retrospective study in a(More)
The objective of this review is to compare the symptomatological evolution following conservative management (CM) or microsurgery (MS) in patients with intralabyrinthine schwannomas (ILS). A thorough systematic review of the English and French literature from 1948 to February 2014 was performed using Ovid Medline. An ancestor search was also completed. The(More)
OBJECTIVES Hyaluronic acid fat graft myringoplasty (HAFGM) is a new technique for tympanic membrane perforation (TMP) treatment. It is simple, inexpensive, and performed under local anesthesia at the outpatient office department. We aim to evaluate the HAFGM on different TMP sizes, to compare the success rate of HAFGM with the underlay and overlay(More)
OBJECTIVES The incidence of malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor (MPNST) is approximately 0.001%. Those involving intracranial nerves are even more exceptional. Little information is available concerning work up and management. Our objective is: (1) to review all cases of intracranial MPNST described in the literature, (2) to highlight the suspicion of(More)
INTRODUCTION Vertigo of vascular origin is usually limited to migraine, transient ischemic attacks, and ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke. Excluding migraines, focal neurologic deficits usually allow a fast identification of the impending neural damage and permit a rapid transfer to a stroke team. Few authors have considered that a vascular origin should be(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the benefits in terms of sound localization, to evaluate speech discrimination in noise, to appraise the prosthesis benefit and to identify outcome in right and left handed patients when BAHA are implanted on the right or on the left deaf side. METHODS Two years prospective study in a tertiary referral center. Tests consist on Hearing(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate hyaluronic acid fat graft myringoplasty (HAFGM) for different tympanic membrane perforation (TMP) sizes and to compare its success rate with that of the underlay and overlay techniques. DESIGN Prospective study. SETTING Tertiary care pediatric center. PATIENTS Two hundred eight children aged 4 to 16 years (mean age, 11.84 years)(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate audiometric and clinical results of children fitted with a bone-anchored hearing aid with specific emphasis on speech discrimination in different sound environments after one year of use. METHODS We performed a prospective longitudinal study. Seventeen patients between the ages of 5 and 18 years old were included. All patients(More)
OBJECTIVE Langerhans' cell histiocytosis (LCH) is a rare pathology that implies an abnormal proliferation of these kinds of cells associated with a granular infiltration that affects different structures of the human body, including the temporal bone. The authors present their series of LCH of the temporal bone in children at the Sainte-Justine university(More)
