We report our experience with 10 cases of sphenoidal aspergillomas treated by endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS). Chronic symptoms such as cough, post-nasal discharge, dysphonia and even facial pain can be encountered in the history. Computerised tomography and, occasionally, magnetic resonance imaging are of great help in the assessment of this disease,(More)
Th CT and MRI appearance of 196 lymphomatous histologically proved lesions were rewied in 127 patients. A post contrast study was performed in all patients studied with CT; 118 lesions were also assessed before an iodine contrast injection. 40 lesions were both studied with CT and MRI, and 12 only with MRI. There is a single lesion in 86% of the cases with(More)
Over the last decade, we have observed a high frequency of Aspergillus rhinosinusitis in french medical centers. The epidemiological data, clinical presentations, radiology, mycology and histology results of 173 consecutive patients with paranasal sinus fungus balls who were admitted from 1989 to 2002 have been reviewed. The most common symptoms included(More)
The better understanding of chronic and recurrent rhinosinusitis and the advance in endoscopic endonasal surgery have modified the radiological pre-operative investigation of this condition. The ethmoid labyrinth, not accessible to the endoscope, may be explored by axial and coronal high-resolution thin section (2 mm) CT. We have reviewed 100 CT scans with(More)
OBJECTIVES This report presents the French Society of ORL (SFORL) guidelines for exploration for remote metastasis and synchronous second cancer in initial staging of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma. MATERIALS AND METHODS An exhaustive literature review was analyzed by a multidisciplinary work-group. RESULTS The thorax is the most frequent(More)
OBJECTIVES To set out good practice guidelines for locoregional extension assessment of squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (excluding nasopharynx, nasal cavities and sinuses). MATERIALS AND METHODS A critical multidisciplinary review of the literature on locoregional extension assessment of squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck was(More)
Several studies have served to underline the interest of MRI in the diagnosis and assessment of epidural abscess and malignant extradural spinal tumors. In our work, one of the quantitatively greatest published to this day, 64 patients presenting epidural pathology were evaluated by means of MRI. All the explorations were brought about through weighted(More)
Mechanisms regulating sinus growth are poorly understood. We report a series of six cases of unilateral choanal atresia and discuss the role of nasal ventilation on sinus growth. The presence and the size of the sinus cavities are the main parameters. Our preliminary results suggest that sinus growth is independent of nasal ventilation.
INTRODUCTION Nasal polyposis is an inflammatory disorder which pathophysiology remains unclear. Several clinical associations are described according to co-morbidities (asthma, allergy...). OBJECTIVE To analyze the efficacy of a standardized surgical procedure in 65 patients with nasal polyposis, enrolled in three categories according to the presence of(More)
