Normal wound healing of the paranasal sinuses: Clinical and experimental investigations
SummaryTwenty-two patients underwent partial or complete ethmoidectomies and were subjected to standardized postoperative follow-ups including endoscopic photography of healing tissues. SequentialExpand
Nasal airway changes after Le Fort I--impaction and advancement: anatomical and functional findings.
Twenty patients were studied prospectively to assess intranasal anatomical changes and functional changes resulting from a one-piece Le Fort I-osteotomy with anterior and superior positioning of theExpand
Influence of endoscopic sinus surgery on voice quality
Abstract Twenty-one patients with documented chronic paranasal sinusitis and in need of endoscopic endonasal sinus surgery were subjected to voice analysis. Tape recordings of different sustainedExpand
Dynamics of eicosanoids in peripheral blood cells during bronchial provocation in aspirin-intolerant asthmatics.
The underlying mechanisms of bronchoconstriction in aspirin-intolerant asthmatics (AIAs) are still unknown, but the hypothesis of an altered metabolism of arachidonic acid is generally accepted. SoExpand
Arachidonic acid metabolism in nasal tissue and peripheral blood cells in aspirin intolerant asthmatics.
Aspirin intolerance (AI) is characterized by polypous rhinosinusitis, bronchial asthma and adverse reactions to aspirin. The common intolerance to all cyclo-oxygenase inhibitors allows us to focusExpand
The Anterior Sphenoid Wall: Relative Anatomy for Sphenoidotomy
A total of 53 anatomical specimens of the posterior ethmoid and the adjacent anterior sphenoid sinus wall were examined in reference to the operative guidelines for endonasal sphenoidotomy. SixExpand
[Pneumatic intracorporeal lithotripsy of salivary calculi. In vitro and animal experiment studies].
BACKGROUND The effort to use minimally invasive strategies in the treatment of human sialolithiasis in principle seems to allow the clinical application of pneumatic lithotripsy because of the smallExpand
Indications, technique and results of endonasal endoscopic ethmoidectomy.
Endoscopic ethmoid sinus surgery was introduced in Erlangen in 1976. Posterior-to-anterior ethmoidectomy under the optical control of a 70 degrees telescope with a suction-irrigation handpiece wasExpand
[Experimental studies of wound healing in the paranasal sinuses. II. Spontaneous wound healing and drug effects in a standardized wound model].
A model of wound healing in the maxillary antrum of the rabbit was developed. The regeneration of standardized circular mucosal defects 4 mm in diameter was studied using conventional histology andExpand
