The purpose of the study was to compare three types of general anesthesia for functional endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS) with controlled hypotension measuring the quality of visibility of the surgical field and the blood loss during the operation. Seventy-one patients underwent endoscopic ethmoidectomy bilaterally for nasal polyposis and/or chronic(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of the study was to assess whether partial cordectomy or complete cordectomy with narrow free margins is a safe oncological procedure for T1 glottic carcinoma. We also studied surgical margins and the involvement of anterior commissure. METHODS Thirty-one T1 glottic carcinomas underwent endoscopic CO(2) laser excision of the lesion(More)
Status of lymph nodes of level IIb was examined to identify the incidence of nodal metastasis and the lymphatic drainage in squamous cell carcinoma of the oral tongue in patients undergoing modified radical neck dissection (MRND) and sentinel node biopsy (SNB). Overall, 72 patients were divided into two groups; 38 patients (Group A) of any T and N+ or(More)
We evaluated the variation in bone conduction auditory thresholds in patients undergoing surgical intervention for otosclerosis as part of our report on the use of surgery in patients with a small air-bone gap. Of the 110 patients who underwent stapedotomy, 45 were treated by traditional surgery and 65 with carbon dioxide laser, with a follow-up of 3 years(More)
The authors have studied the use of the CO(2) laser in performing primary stapedotomy in 451 patients affected by otosclerosis, operated between 1996 and 2000. Footplate perforation was practised with a traditional method, by means of a microdrill, in 169 subjects. A CO(2) laser was instead used in other 282 cases; the authors effected the platinotomy with(More)
This study presents results obtained from 83 patients with bilateral vocal cord paralysis in adduction treated between 1982 to 2001, with CO(2) laser microlaryngoscopy. In relation to the different types of surgery followed, three distinct treatment groups were included: group 1 (1982-1984) included 5 patients treated with vaporization of the vocal process(More)
