The laryngectomees offer a good model for investigating the effect of absence of nasal ventilation in humans. Two samples has been studied: one composed for 24 laryngectomees, the other one for 54 healthy men. The clearance mucociliar time, using the charcoal power method in both specimen, and a structural and ultrastructural morphological survey in 5… (More)
A comparative study was made of endonasal dacryorhinostomy using either a 0 degree or 30 degrees rigid endoscope or a Zeiss operating microscope in 25 patients with chronic epiphora and complete stenosis of the nasolacrimal duct confirmed by dacryocystography. The success rate in both groups was similar (80%). Computed tomography is useful in post-traumatic… (More)
We describe the modification in one of the passages of the technique of subtotal laryngectomy with epiglottoplasty, consisting of the opening of larynx through the thyroid membrane. This maneuver improves the visualization of the tumor facilitating the time of its removal and later reconstruction.
A retrospective study was made of cavum malignant neoplasias. They were diagnosed and treated in the Ciudad Sanitaria Virgen de la Arrixaca (Murcia-Spain), between 1973 and 1982, with an epidemiological, clinical, anatomopathological, treatment and prognosis analysis. Cavum cancer is more common in men, with an average evolution time before the diagnosis… (More)
The paper deals about classical histologic and histochemical study for mucinoid substances through 7 laryngeal pieces coming from clinic autopsies. The gland units occurring in the two lower thirds of the epiglottis were formed by a great number of serous acini and mucinous tubuli, which secretion is acid and neutral mucous substances, as sialomucins,… (More)
INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES Epiphora caused by nasolacrimal drainage system obstruction is the main indication for dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR). So are chronic conjunctivitis and dacryocystitis from the same origin. Nasal endoscopy and the introduction of laser assisted DCR have facilitated the performance of the technique. However, it requires complex and… (More)
An ischaemic infarction of the anterior inferior cerebellar artery (AICA) is usually associated with vertigo, hearing loss, facial palsy, nystagmus, or truncal ataxia; it is often accompanied by other brainstem or cerebellar signs. Sudden- onset bilateral hearing loss without associated neurological symptoms is infrequent in the literature. We report a case… (More)
The sudden deafness is a common pathology with unilateral affectation and unknown etiology. Nowadays, the treatment is not completely clarified. We compare a urografin-CO2 treatment with CO2 as a single therapy.
Prospective study following 32 total laryngectomees with the aim of compare the efficacy of the pharyngo-esophageal closure alternatively stiching with vicryl and catgut. The use of vicryl resulted in 31 percent pharyngocutaneous fistulae versus 61 percent with catgut.
