Cathepsin (Cath) B, CathK and CathL are cysteine proteases that participate in the lysosomal protein degradation system and are expressed in macrophages, epithelioid cells, and multinucleated histiocytic giant cells (MGCs). Both macrophages and MGCs are commonly found adjacent to immunoglobulin light chain-associated (AL) amyloid deposits, which raised the(More)
Using a diagnostic prospective cohort single center study design, the influence of a cervical collar on standing balance during dynamic postural perturbations in healthy adults and patients with acute unilateral vestibular dysfunction was measured in 31 healthy subjects and 27 patients with acute unilateral vestibular loss. The main outcome measures were(More)
Dysphagia is a major risk factor for morbidity and mortality in critically ill patients treated in intensive care units (ICUs). Structured otorhinolaryngological data on dysphagia in ICU survivors with severe sepsis are missing. In a prospective study, 30 ICU patients with severe sepsis and thirty without sepsis as control group were examined using bedside(More)
The aim of the present study was to explore serological biomarkers which predict the outcome of tonsillectomy for chronic tonsillitis. A case study in a University ENT department of 24 adult patients with chronic tonsillitis (CHT) in comparison to 24 patients with acute peritonsillar abscess (PTA) was performed. Blood samples for clinical routine(More)
Although surgical treatment of patients with chronic vocal cord palsy (VCP) is an integral part of clinical routine of otorhinolaryngologists, there is nearly no population-based data published on incidence and efficiency of this surgery country-wide or nation-wide. 1430 patients with chronic VCP were treated in a department of otorhinolaryngology between(More)
Hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH) is a rare, severe, and often fatal disorder. Its hereditary and sporadic form can present as a significant diagnostic challenge to the otolaryngologist. This report describes two fatal cases of adult patients with HLH initially presented as infectious mononucleosis to an otorhinolaryngologist. The clinical(More)
The method of classification and tree analysis (CART) was used to predict the outcome of tonsillectomy for chronic tonsillitis (CHT) analyzing patterns of serological markers. In a prospective case study of 24 adult patients with CHT in comparison to 24 patients with acute peritonsillar abscess (PTA) blood samples were assessed 1 day before (T-1) and 3 days(More)
BACKGROUND/AIMS Postural instability in patients with normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH) is a most crucial symptom leading to falls with secondary complications. The aim of the current study was to evaluate the therapeutic effect of spinal tap on postural stability in these patients. METHODS Seventeen patients with clinical symptoms of NPH were examined(More)
