In this follow-up investigation the long-term course of the disease was studied both clinically and radiographically. In 23 of 25 patients investigated, the clinical symptoms disappeared before the patients were 22 years of age, independent of a given therapy. However,(More)

The study has investigated the relationship between the chromosomal aberration and ear and/or hearing disorders in 115 girls/women with Turner syndrome (TS). A dose-response relationship was found between the karyotype and hearing function. Hearing deteriorated more rapidly with increasing age in TS women lacking the whole p-arm of chromosome X (i.e.(More)
401 mandibular body fractures occurring during a 5-year period were analysed retrospectively. Out of these, 38 fractures (9.5%) were not consolidated by 50 days and made up the delayed healing group (DHG). A control group (CG) of another 38 fractures was constituted using the first mandibular body fracture consecutively following one in the DHG. The mean(More)
