PURPOSE Hearing loss can lead to a number of disabilities and can reduce quality of life. Noise-induced hearing losses have become more common among adolescents due to increased exposure to personal music players. We, therefore, investigated the use of personal music player among Korean adolescents and the relationship between hearing threshold and usage(More)
OBJECTIVES To assess the effect of neoadjuvant chemotherapy with paclitaxel and cisplatin on long-term (5-year) survival of patients with stage IB2 to IIB cervical cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty-three consecutive patients with International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics stage IB2 to IIB uterine cervical cancer were treated with intravenous(More)
CONCLUSIONS The statistically significant correlations between vestibular evoked myogenic potential (VEMP) parameters and age may be due to hair cell loss of the otolith organ and/or to degenerative changes of the vestibular neural pathway. These findings indicate that age should be taken into account when interpreting VEMP results. It is also important to(More)
B-1 cells spontaneously secrete natural Ig that acts as a primary line of defense against infection. A major shortfall in our understanding of this key process centers on the molecular mechanisms regulating natural Ab secretion by B-1 cells. Herein, we demonstrate that secreting B-1 cells use some aspects of the recently recognized plasmacytic(More)
CONCLUSIONS Bacterial predominance and antibiotic sensitivity have changed over time, making continuous and periodic surveillance necessary in guiding appropriate antibacterial therapy. OBJECTIVES With the development and widespread use of antibiotics, the types of pathogenic microorganisms and their resistance to antibiotics have changed. Knowledge of(More)
PURPOSE Patients with Ramsay Hunt syndrome have a poorer prognosis than those with Bell palsy despite the use of various treatment modalities. We compared the clinical characteristics, treatment methods, and outcomes in patients with Ramsay Hunt syndrome and Bell palsy. MATERIALS AND METHODS Patients with Ramsay Hunt syndrome were compared with patients(More)
OBJECTIVES By assessing unilateral utricular function at the acute and subacute stages, we sought to determine the ability of the subjective visual vertical (SVV) during eccentric rotation (dynamic SVV) in detecting latent abnormality of otolith dysfunction in unilateral vestibular neuritis. In addition, we compared the validity of the dynamic SVV with(More)
OBJECTIVE To measure clusterin expression in cervical cancer tissues and cell lines and to evaluate whether clusterin confers resistance to paclitaxel in cervical cancer cells. METHODS Immunohistochemical staining for clusterin was performed on 15 normal cervical tissues and 32 primary cervical cancer tissues, and clusterin expression in cervical cancer(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the incidence of high-risk human papillomavirus (HPV) infection and its clinical meaning. METHODS Total 28,339 women attending our hospital for routine gynecologic care underwent Papanicolaou test (PAP test) and high-risk HPV tests. Biopsies were taken from some women and their results were compared. RESULTS The prevalence of(More)
BACKGROUND The extent of facial nerve damage is expected to be more severe in higher grades of facial palsy, and the outcome after applying different treatment methods may reveal obvious differences between severe Bell's palsy and mild to moderate palsy. This study aimed to systematically evaluate the effects of different treatment methods and related(More)
