Although hyalinizing clear cell carcinoma (HCCC) had been previously illustrated by several authors, it was not until 1994 that this tumour was characterized by Milchgrub et al. [Am J Surg Pathol (1994),18,74] and separated from the heterogeneous group of clear cell carcinomas described in the literature. HCCC is a distinctive infiltrative low-grade,(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the incidence and circumstances of cervical haematomas complicating thyroid surgery. The second objective was to study the effects of modifying our unit's practice on this complication. The study involved a retrospective chart review of 504 consecutive thyroid operations performed by one surgeon from 1994 to 2005. The(More)
This is a retrospective review of benign cysts of the adult endolarynx that presented as airway emergencies in four teaching hospitals of Dublin, Ireland, over 2 years. During that period nine patients with endolaryngeal cysts necessitating emergency airway intervention were managed. All cases were treated by endoscopic microlaryngeal marsupialization after(More)
Sublingual hematoma secondary to excessive anticoagulation is a rare, life-threatening condition. Reports in the literature have emphasized the importance of a prompt reversal of the causative coagulopathy by intravenous administration of vitamin K and fresh frozen plasma. In the event of an unstable airway, surgical intervention via tracheostomy or(More)
Septorhinoplasty in children carries the risk of growth disturbance of the nose and premaxilla. The open or external approach has the advantage that the cartilaginous nasal skeleton remains intact. This open approach enables the surgeon to excise dermoid cysts and to realign lower lateral cartilages (unilateral cleft) without disturbing the integrity of the(More)
Nasal septal surgery and rhinoplasty are controversial in children. Traditionally, an attitude of restraint has been employed by most surgeons till an empirical age of 16 to 18 years. This is to avoid the possible adverse effects that the growth spurts may have on the nose and midface region. Some authors, however, have claimed a paucity of evidence that(More)
Previously, the hypoglossal nerve has not undergone intra-operative monitoring during neck operations in which the nerve is at risk. As society becomes increasingly litigious, this may change. This study describes the technique and the microvoltages used in 10 patients for intra-operative stimulation of the hypoglossal nerve with the Magstim nerve(More)
Some members of the Non-Tuberculous Mycobacteria family are free living organisms in the environment. They may be pathogenic in the immunocomprimised or in chronic lung disease. We describe a case of a nine year old of Asian descent who presented with clinical mastoiditis where the pathogenic organism was Mycobacterium Gordonae. The decision was made to(More)
The aetiology of nasal deformity has frequently included birth trauma. There is no consensus in the literature as to whether nasal surgery, in the form of closed reduction, is indicated in neonates. The majority of studies in the literature that advocate intervention have inadequate followup periods and there is a paucity of evidence for the adverse effects(More)
