BACKGROUND Some loop ear surgical procedures include cartilage section or abrasion, while others involve antihelix folding by simple suture. METHODS Our results with the Mustardé technique are presented. This procedure avoids an aggressive action on the ear cartilage and makes antihelix folding easier. RESULTS Good aesthetic results were obtained in all(More)
INTRODUCTION We review a methodology for detection of malignancy in thyroid gland surgery, comparing clinical exploration, ultrasonography, gammagraphy, fine-needle aspiration (FNA) and extemporaneous biopsy with the definitive pathological results. MATERIAL AND METHODS We carried out a retrospective study on a sample of 433 (N=433) patients who had been(More)
Video-fiberoscopy is the exploration of upper respiratory airways used in our diagnostic protocol in patients with chronic snoring and obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS). We perform a fibroscopy during propofol induced sleep without tracheal intubation; video recording and monitoring of level of sleep, pulse oximetry, blood pressure, ECG, etc. is used.(More)
Tolerance of N-2-(p-chlorophenoxy)-isobutyryl-N'-morpholinomethylurea (plafibride ITA 104), was studied in a group of healthy volunteers. Bis[2-(p-chlorophenoxy)-2-methylpropionato]-hydroxyaluminum (alufibrate) was used as a reference drug. Treatment with both drugs was carried out at progressively increasing doses from 50 to 1600 mg/d. Both products were(More)
