OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to determine whether elastography, a sonographically based real-time strain imaging method for registering the elastic properties of tissue, can be used in brain tumor surgery. METHODS A modification of classic elastography called vibrography was applied in these measurements with static compression replaced by(More)
PURPOSE Intracranial lesions are often characterized by different elasticities. The aim of the present study was to test the application of vibrography during brain tumor surgery. MATERIALS AND METHODS The real-time vibrography system consisted of a conventional ultrasound system (Siemens Sonoline Omnia) with a custom-designed RF interface and a 6.5-MHz(More)
In this prospective study, we compared the short-term quality of life (QOL) of two subgroups of head and neck cancers: oropharyngeal and laryngeal cancers. Patients treated with curative surgery, were asked to participate in the study using the EORTC QLQ-C30 and H&N35 questionnaires to examine QOL. The oropharynx group consisted of 32 (48 %) patients, while(More)
Reactive oxygen species are important elements in ototoxic damage to hair cells (HCs), appearing early in the damage process. Higher levels of natural antioxidants are positively correlated with resistance to ototoxins and many studies have shown that exogenous antioxidants can protect HCs from damage. While a very wide variety of antioxidants with(More)
Malignant melanoma is a common disease in dermatology. Especially the skin exposed to the sun is frequently affected. Primary tumors of the same entity in the respiratory mucosa is very rare. We report about a 80 year old man, who came into our clinic with recurrent epistaxis and a nasal congestion on the right side. Attendant, a protrusio of the right(More)
Das Internet wird für die Information von Patienten zunehmend wichtiger, sodass in Patientengesprächen häufiger Internetinhalte diskutiert werden müssen. Die vorliegende Analyse der Internetinformationsgewohnheiten von HNO-Patienten erfolgte mittels Fragebögen über 9 Monate in den Jahren 2006/2007. Die Angaben der 503 stationären Patienten verschiedener(More)
BACKGROUND Oropharyngeal cancer is a diagnosis which means a change in life and even after successful treatment a tremendous reduction in the quality of life. Aim of this study is to analyse the health-related quality of life in patients with oropharyngeal cancer dependent on different treatment options. METHODS AND PATIENTS Charts of 256 patients treated(More)
