A case of a patient with a posterior fossa meningioma extending through the hypoglossal canal to the cervical region as described in this article has not been previously described in the literature. Investigations and surgical management are outlined and pathological classifications are discussed. A literature review including recent reports of extracranial(More)
The incidence of human papillomavirus (HPV)-associated tonsil cancer is increasing but the prevalence of HPV, and of premalignant precursors, in tonsil tissue is unknown. We aimed to assess prevalence of HPV infection in nonmalignant tonsillar crypt epithelia and to histopathologically characterise positive samples. Formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE)(More)
The ability of disposable half-face masks containing activated carbon to protect against inhaled ozone (O2) (nominal experimental exposure concentration, 0.5 ppm) was tested using a specially designed mechanical device simulating the breathing of a moderately exercising human, and then tested further by 18 volunteers exposed to O2 in a(More)
Voice quality assessment is required by healthcare professionals in patients suffering from voice problems. Speech and language therapists (SLTs) use a well-known subjective assessment approach which is called GRBAS, to quantify voice problems. GRBAS is an acronym for a five dimensional scale of measurements of voice properties which were originally(More)

Experiments and data analyses are reported on the 20 kHz acoustic manipulation of samples of trisodium phosphate dodecahydrate, of varying particle size, suspended in suitable support media. Data are obtained to expand the understanding and optimisation of the SINNMR (sonically induced narrowing of the nuclear magnetic resonance spectra of solids)(More)
