INTRODUCTION Enlarged vestibular aqueduct (EVA) is the commonest congenital anomaly found with imaging techniques in paediatric sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL). Our aim was to describe clinical and audiological findings in paediatric hearing loss associated to EVA. METHODS Retrospective review of 55 children with imaging-technique EVA findings from 2000(More)
INTRODUCTION Mucopolysaccharidoses (MPS) are a group of systemic diseases characterised by a genetic deficiency of lysosomal enzymes that causes the accumulation of glycosaminoglycans in different tissues. The onset of symptoms usually occurs in early childhood, causing problems of otitis media, hearing loss and airway obstruction in the ENT area. (More)
The case of a 7-year-old boy with the normotensive form of “chloride-shunt” syndrome is described. An unusual feature was the clinical presentation with lithiasis, caused by marked hypercalciuria of renal origin. The present studies were carried out to investigate the nature of the renal tubular defect. Indices for proximal and distal sodium chloride(More)
Treatment of subglottic hemangiomas in children has traditionally been characterized as a challenging situation with multiple therapeutic options without consensus as to which one is the best and with risks of severe side effects. Recent reports on the experience of propranolol use in the treatment of paediatric airway hemangiomas suggest favourable reasons(More)
An 11-year-old female who came to consult about dysphonia that had lasted for 1 year, without associated symptoms, presenting the antecedent of a 1 cm×2 cm flat angioma in the right parietal area. Under fibroscopy, there was a whitish lesion in anterior angle of the mouth, predominantly subglottic, occupying a third of the length of the subglottis at most,(More)
Cochlear Implantation is a recognized procedure for acoustical rehabilitation of the profoundly or totally deaf unable to effectively use a traditional hearing aid. Since 1989, 30 patients (27 postlingual and 3 perilingual) have been operated on by the senior Author with the implantation of a multichannel device: Med-El (3 cases), Clarion (3 case) and(More)
We study the basic guidelines of the middle ear surgery, having as target the recuperation of the anatomic functional integrity of ear. There are different important elements in the quality/quantity of the functional results as follows: The surgery technical method used. The actual pathology in the middle ear. The quality of eustachian tube function. The(More)
INTRODUCTION Among the temporal bone abnormalities that can be found in the etiological study of paediatric sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) by imaging techniques, those related to the internal auditory canal (IAC) are the least frequent. The most prevalent of these abnormalities that is associated with SNHL is stenotic IAC due to its association with(More)
