The Wildervanck syndrome consists of the Klippel-Feil deformity of the spine, eyeball retraction, lateral gaze weakness, and hearing loss. Conductive hearing loss, as well as a more frequently occurring sensorineural hearing loss, is caused by dysplasia of the inner ear. Typically, polytomograms demonstrate a bulbous vestibule and dilated lateral(More)
While the nasopharynx is most commonly regarded by the otolaryngologist as a primary site of neoplastic involvement, it is also an avenue of spread of base-of-the-skull tumors presenting as bulging nasopharyngeal masses. The temporal sequence of clinical signs and symptoms may reliably predict the origin of a ventrally extending sphenooccipital chordoma(More)
Does free transplanted autologous cartilage grow? Clinical studies by Peer and Dupertuis have produced variable observations. If free cartilage autografts in infancy and childhood do increase in size, the need for additional procedures, such as overgrafting or successive allografting as the child grows, would be obviated. There is a need for an experimental(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the relationships between personality traits, depressive symptomatology and continuous muscle tension. METHODS These were investigated by means of a visual analog scale and the presence of continuous muscle tension during repeated isokinetic shoulder flexions in patients with muscle or joint pain and controls. RESULTS A(More)
BACKGROUND Administration of intravenous sedation and intercostal nerve blocks has resulted in reduced postoperative nausea and faster recovery as compared to general anesthesia. OBJECTIVES The authors present their experience with intercostal nerve blocks and intravenous sedation in breast augmentation, with and without simultaneous mastopexy. Their(More)
BACKGROUND Improvements in midfacial rejuvenation have allowed for more predictable and reliable results; however, there are still common problems that can lead to a suboptimal outcome. Specifically, we aim to achieve an appropriate vector of lift, adequate camouflaging of the nasojugal groove, especially medially, as well as to obtain a durable, long-term(More)
Submental intubation, a less invasive alternative to tracheostomy, was first described for acute airway management of maxillofacial trauma patients, where nasoendotracheal intubation was contraindicated and oral intubation was not possible due to the desire to establish dental relationships perioperatively. While submental intubation is used most commonly(More)
