Sixty-two patients with different temporal bone lesions were prospectively examined by high-resolution computed tomography (CT) and conventional plain radiography, including pluridirectional tomography. High-resolution CT enabled a clear diagnosis in 80% of cases, conventional radiology in 63%; 1.6-times more bone information was recorded by high-resolution(More)
36 patients with carcinomas of different ENT regions were investigated by means of MRI, CT and B-mode ultrasonography (US). The images were evaluated by parameters of clinical importance: tumour detectability marginal appearance, internal architecture, regional extension, and artifact degradation. The results were compared with the clinical tumour staging(More)
From 1984 to 1987, seventy-two patients with squamous cell carcinomas involving oropharynx, hypopharynx, larynx and cervical lymph nodes, who underwent surgery, were examined to determine the value of computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance (MR), high-resolution real-time sonography (US) and palpation in preoperative staging of cervical nodal(More)
We report on a 52-year-old female patient who developed a thrombophlebitis with consecutive thrombosis of the internal jugular vein 14 days after hemicolectomy and prolonged central venous catheterisation. The tip of the polyethylene catheter was placed in the internal jugular vein. The pathophysiology of the thrombotic inflammation can be related to local(More)
The value of high resolution real time ultrasound imaging in the preoperative differential diagnosis of focal disease of the parotid gland was evaluated in 35 cases. After description of the ultrasound imaging of the normal gland, the majority of benign and malignant tumours are demonstrated. Ultrasound patterns allow a good differentiation of mixed(More)
We examined the incidence of an acute respiratory insufficiency in a retrospective study in 100 patients with carcinomas in the head and neck region who had received cytostatic pretreatment with bleomycin. All patients had been ventilated intraoperatively with 28% to 33% oxygen under precise control of blood gas analysis. In 93% of the patients, there were(More)
High-resolution CT, using fine sections, is a valuable method for radiological examination of the petrous bone. A standardized method of examination using the orbitomeatal and coronary plane is adequate for detailed screening of the petrous bone and shows almost all structures with high accuracy. The sensitivity of the method for showing 35 sub-structures(More)
Klippel-Feil syndrome is a congenital deformity disease caused by disturbances of the growing together of the mesenchymal preliminary vertebrae which are mostly located in the regions of the cervical spine and shoulder. Short neck and wryneck (torticollis), as well as limited motion of the neck and reduced mobility of the cervical spine, are the most(More)
The clinical experience with Magnetic Resonance Imaging in parotid gland diseases of 13 patients in discussed. An excellent visualization of the surrounding anatomy, the intrinsic structures of the gland. such as the facial nerve and the lesion, which can be achieved by MRI only, will provide more detailed information for the surgeon and thus for the(More)
By means of active anterior rhinorheomanometry we searched for nasal cycles in children of 3-10 years of age. We measured the nasal air flow every 15 minutes for a period of 2 hours on both sides in relation to a pressure of 1 mbar. In the group of the 7-10 year old children we found nasal cycles in 79 per cent according to Hasegawa's and Kern's definition.(More)
