Choanal stenosis is usually a congenital anomaly in children. Acquired choanal stenosis after radiotherapy for nasopharyngeal carcinoma is a very rare pathology; only two publications report seven cases in the literature. We describe the clinical history, preoperative evaluation, surgical treatment and outcome of a case of acquired choanal stenosis after(More)
We encountered a case of acquired perilymphatic fistula in which the origin of the disease, namely, the stapes begin medially displaced into the vestibule, was shown by thin-section CT. Accordingly, we recommend that every patient with suspected perilymphatic fistula of traumatic origin undergo high-resolution CT of the petrous bone.
The purpose of this prospective study was to assess the impact of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Computed Tomography (CT) in the surgical management of carcinomas with mandibular bone invasion. Thirty-five patients with squamous cell carcinoma of oral cavity or oropharynx, with mandibular spread, were studied with both imaging methods before surgical(More)
The techniques of free tissue transfers are mainly used for mandibular reconstruction by specialized surgical teams. This type of reconstruction is mostly realized in matters of head and neck cancers affecting mandibular bone and requiring a wide surgical resection and interruption of the mandible. To decrease the duration of the operation, surgical(More)
Extensive investigation of 41 patients highly suspected of having pontocerebellar angle tumors led to the detection of 21 surgically confirmed tumors. Precise criteria, involving numerical rating of sensitivity and specificity, were applied to compare the diagnostic reliability of multidirectional and computed tomography. An analysis of the diagnostic value(More)
Five cases of epidermoid cyst (or primary cholesteatoma) of petrous bone are described and the criteria necessary to consider these tumors as truly primary outlined. The most plausible theories appear to be either congenital: embryonic inclusions or, to a lesser degree, acquired: papillary proliferation. Emphasis is placed on facial signs, even minimal,(More)
Moderately severe cochleovestibular disorders of often late onset may arise from minor dysplasias of the internal ear. Diagnosis of these bone dysplasias is radiologic. The problem that arises is that of the indications for radiotomography of the internal ear, insofar as on the one hand no certain radioclinical equivalence exists, and on the other hand this(More)
The authors have used CT scans and MRI to study pathology in anatomical and radiological correlations of brain slices. The CT scan was particularly useful for studying structures at the skull base, although at the level of the posterior fossa such scans could visualize only those tumors that were larger than 8 mm, even after injection. The CT scan was found(More)
