Nasal gliomas are neurologic malformations that should be considered in the presence of a congenital nasal mass. Appropriate pre-operative examination must be performed to identify a possible connection with CNS, which is present in 15-20% of the cases. This examination should determine whether initial craniotomy is necessary. Here, we report five cases and(More)
BACKGROUND The zygoma implant has been an effective option in the short-term management of the atrophic edentulous maxilla. PURPOSE To report on long-term outcomes in the rehabilitation of the atrophic maxilla using zygomatic (ZI) and regular implants (RI). MATERIAL AND METHODS 22 consecutive zygomatic patients in a maintenance program were included.(More)
OBJECTIVE Active middle ear implants augment hearing in patients with sensorineural, conductive, and mixed hearing losses with great success. However, the application of active middle ear implants has been restricted to compromised ears in adults only. Recently, active middle ear implants have been successfully implanted in patients younger than 18 years of(More)
Agenesis, aplasia and hypoplasia of the internal carotid arteries (ICA) are rare congenital disorders with few descriptions in the otorhinolaryngological literature. We present two cases of major abnormalities of the ICA, one with isolated hypoplasia and another with agenesis associated with ear malformation and facial palsy. We briefly review the normal(More)
PURPOSE The first aim of this study is to compare the outcomes in rehabilitating the atrophic maxilla using zygomatic implants (ZIs) and regular implants (RIs) using the classical zygomatic technique (CZT) versus the zygomatic anatomy-guided approach (ZAGA). The second goal of this paper is to propose a standardized system to report rhinosinusitis(More)
At present, the frequency of intracranial complications of middle ear infections has decreased sharply as a result of the use of more effective antibiotics. We report two cases of lateral sinus thrombosis, in a 2-year-old male and a 14-year-old male respectively, after middle ear infection that progressed to mastoiditis with osteitis. The severity of these(More)
CONCLUSION Active middle ear implant (AMEI) implantation in children and adolescents is safe and provides improved hearing results. No statistical difference in hearing outcomes was shown in the group of patients affected by chronic middle ear diseases versus aural atresia. Also, the transducer location (round window versus oval window placement) did not(More)
Salivary gland tumors account for less than 5% of the head and neck neoplasms. Among them, mucoepidermoid carcinoma is the most common malignant salivary gland tumor. About 45% of mucoepidermoid carcinomas occur in the parotid gland, and appear around the fifth decade of life, being unusual in children under 10 years. We report a case of a parotid mass(More)
Primary localized amyloidosis of the nasopharynx is a rare disease. We present the case of a 13-year-old girl, to our knowledge only the second pediatric case reported in the literature. Symptoms were nasal obstruction and bleeding from the oral cavity. Physical examination revealed a mass in the nasopharynx and left side of the soft palate. The diagnosis(More)
The zygoma implant has been an effective option in the management of the atrophic edentulous maxilla as well as for maxillectomy defects. Brånemark introduced the zygoma implant not only as a solution to obtain posterior maxillary anchorage but also to expedite the rehabilitation process. The zygoma implant is a therapeutic option that deserves(More)
