The author analysed the available literature concerning this topic. The article presents different theories explaining the phenomenon of sound localisation, such as interaural differences in(More)
A review of patients treated for malignant and benign parotid tumors in a 10-year period (1991–2000) in the Pomeranian County of Poland revealed 417 new cases. The age-standardized incidence rate was 0.23 and 1.35 per 100,000 inhabitants for malignant and benign tumors, respectively. The following data were collected: age, sex, place of living, education,(More)
OBJECTIVES We investigated risk factors of sensorineural hearing loss (SHL) in patients with early stage of ischemic stroke (IS). METHODS Our study consisted of 60 patients with IS who were treated at Department of Neurology, Medical University of Gdansk between 2006 and 2007. A multivariate stepwise linear regression was used to identify the risk factors(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of pharmacological treatment (corticosteroids, vasodilators, vitamins, Betaserc) combined with hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBO) in the sudden sensorineural hearing loss (SSNHL). We reviewed 52 patients with SSNHL treated pharmacologically and with HBO (group A) between 1997 and 2000. All patients in this(More)
Malignant external otitis (MEO) is an invasive, morbidity, even mortality, mainly pseudomonal infection of the external auditory canal, frequently involving the base of the skull, multiple cranial nerve and the meninges. In many cases conventional therapy has been prolonged, intensive and relatively ineffective, especially in infections other than bacterial(More)
OBJECTIVE We investigated the effect of pharmacologic (steroids, vasodilators, vitamins, and Betaserc) and hyperbaric oxygen therapy on patients with sudden sensorineural hearing loss. METHODS The pharmacologic arm of the study consisted of 52 patients with defined sudden sensorineural hearing loss treated simultaneously in the ENT Department and National(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE We have investigated the treatment results of hyperbaric oxygen (HBO2) to patients with radiation-induced tissue complications. MATERIAL AND METHODS Eight patients (1.4%) from 548 with head and neck cancers treated surgically with post- or preoperative radiotherapy or radiotherapy alone in standard doses who developed postradiation(More)
The authors described two cases of palatine tonsil carcinoma treated with surgery and subsequent radiation therapy after which occurred severe radionecrosis of the larynx, pharynx and oral cavity. These subjects were treated with hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBO). Complete resolution of postradiation changes was observed. The authors described: 1) basic(More)
