UNLABELLED Granulomas are bilateral and pediculated lesions of the vocal apophysis. Etiologies: intubation, reflux, trauma, vocal abuse, idiopathic origin. AIM To analyze the clinical and morphological aspects of post intubation granulomas. METHODS retrospective study of patients submitted to microsurgery for post intubation laryngeal granulomas seen at(More)
UNLABELLED Hearing loss in hypothyroidism has been reported by many authors but its pathophysiology is unclear. AIMS to study the audiological evaluation of patients with acquired hypothyroidism. MATERIALS AND METHODS two groups were included: a hypothyroidism group (HG, n-30), and a control group (CG, n-30). Parameters studied: gender, time of(More)
OBJECTIVES Voice disorders affect adults and children and have different causes in different age groups. The aim of the study is to present the etiology and diagnosis dysphonia in a large population of patients with this voice disorder.for dysphonia of a large population of dysphonic patients. METHODS We evaluated 2019 patients with dysphonia who attended(More)
UNLABELLED Congenital and acquired airway diseases are responsible for upper respiratory distress and stridor in children. In neonatal intensive care units, we have seen increased survival in premature babies, but also a high incidence of airway complications related to intubation, which present as stridor. AIM To review endoscopic findings in children(More)
To evaluate the participation of the larynx and cervical trachea in conditioning inspired gases, we randomly allocated 16 mixed-breed dogs to two groups: group TT (tracheal tube; n = 8) and group LMA (laryngeal mask airway; n = 8). The dogs were anesthetized with pentobarbital sodium and mechanically ventilated for 3 hours. The parameters studied were(More)
The effects of anesthetics on cytokine release in patients without comorbidities who undergo minor surgery are not well defined. We compared inflammatory cytokine profiles in adult patients undergoing minimally invasive surgery who received isoflurane or propofol anesthesia. Thirty-four patients without comorbidities undergoing minor surgery were randomly(More)
UNLABELLED Nasal septum deviation (SD) and turbinate hypertrophy (TH) increase the resistance to respiratory airflow and may impair nasal patency. OBJECTIVE To characterize the nasal geometry of individuals with nasal obstruction secondary to SD and/or TH by means of acoustic rhinometry. METHOD This prospective study included 30 adults with complaints(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine, by using scanning electron microscopy, the surface of the tongue, pharynx, and larynx of animals exposed to tobacco. STUDY DESIGN Experimental study. METHODS Twenty rats were allocated to two groups: group I, control group: 10 rats not exposed to any inhaling pollutant and group II, tobacco group: 10 rats exposed to smoke from 10(More)
UNLABELLED Reinke's edema is chronic laryngeal disease in which the superficial layer of the lamina propria is expanded by thick mucus, giving it a gelatin aspect. The disease is directly related to smoking and more frequent in women, who end up having a lower tone of voice. Its histological characteristics cannot always distinguish it from other benign(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES To describe the main causes of hoarseness after undergoing tracheal intubation. CONTENTS Hoarseness is one of the most common postoperatory symptoms after tracheal intubation and the effects vary in terms of duration, depending on the factors that caused it and on how severe the damage to the laryngeal structures. This study(More)
