BACKGROUND Evidence of a high jugular bulb position (HJBP) during the translabyrinthine approach may compromise the surgical removal of cerebellopontine angle (CPA) tumours. We report a simple surgical procedure to safely manage this frequent normal variation and comment on various alternative options. METHODS The translabyrinthine approach included a(More)
RATIONALE To evaluate the functional results of Gamma Knife surgery of vestibular schwannomas relying on a large and prospective series of consecutive cases. MATERIAL AND METHOD The first 1000 patients with cerebello-pontine angle schwannomas were consecutively treated by Gamma Knife in Marseille Timone University Hospital between July 1992 and March(More)
BACKGROUND Surgical treatment of petroclival meningiomas remains challenging. In order to refine indications for the use of stereotactic radiosurgery in the treatment of these tumours, we retrospectively evaluated our experience in this field. METHODS Thirty-two patients harboring a petroclival meningioma were treated consecutively using a Gamma knife(More)
To evaluate the results of Gamma Knife radiosurgery treating vestibular schwannomas (VS) secondary to type 2 neurofibromatosis (NF2) we reviewed our clinical experience. Among the VS that have been treated between July 1992 and January 2002, we could analyze retrospectively the data of 50 VS from 37 patients. Fourteen patients had the mild phenotype while(More)
INTRODUCTION Preservation of functional hearing can be now attempted during the surgical treatment of a vestibular schwannomas. The probability of functional hearing preservation for each of the neurosurgical approaches is currently under evaluation. We report here a preliminary evaluation of our radiosurgical experience. MATERIAL AND METHOD In(More)
In rhinoplasty, satisfying the patient both aesthetically and functionally can be complex. In aesthetic surgery, the rhinoplastician has a reinforced obligation of means. In our experience, the functional outcome of the patient is closely linked to the morphological result. When a rhinoplasty provides the patient with full aesthetic satisfaction, even if(More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY In order to investigate the role of radiosurgery and stereotactic radiotherapy in the management of vestibular schwannomas, we have reviewed our own prospective cohort and the main series of the modern literature. PATIENTS AND METHODS Between July 14th 1992 and June 1st 2011, 2991 vestibular schwannomas were operated on the(More)
OBJECTIVES To present and discuss the case of a diabetic patient admitted with acidoketotic coma, with inner canthus tumefaction due to mucormycosis. CASE STUDY A 38-year-old diabetic man was admitted with acidoketotic coma and poor general health status. Clinical examination found right inner canthus tumefaction and mucopurulent rhinorrhea. Endoscopy of(More)
Observing a morphological alteration of the nasal septum should in no way automatically lead to a septoplasty. Only poorly tolerated septal deviations creating a mechanical nasal obstruction are a surgical indication. This delicate operation requires meticulousness to preserve the muco-perichondrial envelope. The statement follows a rigorous clinical(More)
Drug loaded implants also called drug-eluting implants have proven their benefits over simple implants. Among the developed manufacturing processes, the supercritical CO2 (scCO2) assisted impregnation has attracted growing attention to load Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients into polymer implants since it enables to recover a final implant free of any(More)
