Temporal bone abnormalities such as hypoplasia of the vestibular aqueduct or hypopneumatization of the mastoid have been described in Meniere's disease (MD). Jugular bulb abnormalities (JBA) are one of the most common temporal bone abnormalities. The aim of this study was to evaluate the frequency of JBA in MD. Radiological data obtained by temporal bone(More)
UNLABELLED Neoadjuvant chemotherapy in hypopharyngeal cancer globally improves survival, but some patients do not respond to chemotherapy and adjuvant therapy is delayed. Prediction of response to chemotherapy may allow physicians to optimize planned treatment. The aim of this study was to compare treatment response assessed early with (11)C-methionine PET(More)
We dissected 30 facial nerves in fresh cadavers after arterial casting with red latex to provide specific information about the arterial-related anatomy of the trunk of the facial nerve from the stylomastoid foramen to its bifurcation. We found that a wide anatomic variability does exist. The trunk of the facial nerve was in proximity to the stylomastoid(More)
INTRODUCTION Despite its high incidence and severe morbidity, the physiopathogenesis of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is still unknown. Here, we looked for early anomalies in AIS which are likely to be the cause of spinal deformity and could also be targeted by early treatments. We focused on the vestibular system, which is suspected of acting in(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate whether recent systemic anti-inflammatory agents (AIAs) exposure in patients with sore throat managed with or without antibiotic therapy influenced the risk of peritonsillar abscess (PTA). We conducted a multicenter case–control study in 13 French university hospitals in 2009–2012 comparing patients admitted with PTA to(More)
Vestibular lesions are found after cochlear implantation in 23-100 % of cases. The objectives of this study were to evaluate the vestibular function before and after implantation while focusing its feasibility. This prospective study included 35 patients, mean age 49 years. Each patient enjoyed a vestibular balance before and after implantation in a median(More)
Pachydermoperiostosis (PDP) is the primary form of hypertrophic osteoarthropathy. It is a very rare disease consisting of pachydermia, digital clubbing and radiologic periostosis. Various digestive symptoms in PDP are seen in 11-49% of patients and juvenile polyps may be found at gastric endoscopy. We report here the history of a patient with PDP who was(More)
– A haptic system consists in an articulated mechanical structure with motors and position sensors, as well as embedded electronics allowing force feedback. It is driven by a haptic interface, which enables the user to interact with an image in a virtual reality application, through the sense of touch. Thus, it is a hybrid dynamic system, which contains(More)
