  • carotid
  • Since these lesions are surrounded by compact bones involving critical organs such as internal carotid artery and cranial nerves, considerable experience and techniques are required in surgical treatment and surgical treatments often accompanied by severe sequelae. (springer.com)
  • In one case was noted the concomitant presence of a neurinoma of the VIII cranial nerve with a ipsilateral glomus tumor, and in another case there was a concomitancy of carotid body tumor with temporal glomus jugularis tumor. (scielo.br)

(springer.com)
  • Four partially manipulated temporal-bone specimens were imaged by use of a prototypical cone-beam VCT scanner with a flat-panel detector system at an isometric resolution of 150 μm at the isocenter. (ajnr.org)
  • To test our hypothesis, we scanned four temporal-bone specimens by using a modern MSCT scanner, the reference standard, and a prototypical VCT scanner that employs a flat-panel detector. (ajnr.org)
  • structures
  • Our purpose was to determine how well a prototypical volume CT (VCT) scanner with a flat-panel detector system defines fine structures in temporal bone. (ajnr.org)
  • The flat-panel prototype provides better definition of fine osseous structures of temporal bone than that of currently available MSCT scanners. (ajnr.org)
  • Because temporal-bone imaging is often critically dependent on spatial resolution ( 1 ) rather than soft-tissue contrast, we hypothesized that such a scanner design could produce images of these structures superior to those rendered by the current state-of-the-art technique. (ajnr.org)
  • metastasis
  • Criteria proposed by Coley et al include (1) a primary focus in a single bone on admission, (2) unequivocal histologic proof from a bone lesion (not from a metastasis), and (3) metastasis present on admission only if regional or if the onset of the primary tumor preceded the appearance of the metastasis by at least 6 months. (thefreelibrary.com)
  • clinical
  • The clinical presentations specifically related to temporal bone trauma include facial nerve paralysis (partial or complete), hearing loss (conductive, sensorineural, or mixed), vertigo , dizziness , otorrhagia, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) otorrhea , tympanic membrane perforation , and hemotympanum and canal laceration. (medscape.com)
  • patients
  • The renowned authors share their collective wisdom and pearls gleaned from years of treating patients with temporal bone disease and teaching these methodologies to medical students, residents, and fellows. (ovid.com)
  • Every resident in otolaryngology has to practice on temporal bones before operating on patients. (indigo.ca)
  • 1) Patients with a neoplasm of the temporal bone usually present with deficits in hearing, balance, and facial function. (thefreelibrary.com)
  • We investigated the association between different temporal bone features on admission computed tomography (CT) scan and the outcome in acute ischemic stroke patients included in the randomized Norwegian Sonothrombolysis in Acute Stroke Study (NOR-SASS). (springer.com)
  • Approximately 20% patients had a heterogeneous temporal bone in both the CEST and sham CEST group. (springer.com)
  • Approximately 20% of acute ischemic stroke patients have heterogeneous temporal bone and may be resistant to standard 2-MHz transcranial Doppler ultrasound treatment. (springer.com)
  • facial
  • The spectrum of temporal bone trauma is extremely varied, ranging from minor concussion without functional deficits to severe blunt or penetrating trauma with multifunctional deficits that involve the auditory and vestibular nerves, the facial nerve, and the intracranial contents. (medscape.com)
  • If the tumor grows into the temporal bone it can cause hearing loss, dizziness, and facial paralysis. (cedars-sinai.edu)
  • dissections
  • It provides comprehensive, high-quality, full-color pictures of the detailed steps of all the major surgical approaches that can be performed in the temporal bone, supplemented by images of cadaveric dissections as an aid to understanding the intracranial anatomy when indicated by the approach. (granice.pl)
  • From the reviews:"This manual for performing various temporal bone dissections is divided into exercises in order of complexity, with figures highlighting key steps of each surgical activity. (indigo.ca)
  • It contains helpful tips for temporal bone surgery and would be useful for review prior to dissections. (indigo.ca)
  • cranial
  • Primary lymphoma of the temporal bone presenting as XIIth cranial nerve weakness. (thefreelibrary.com)
  • We report a new case of primary lymphoma of the temporal bone that manifested as XIIth cranial nerve palsy, and we review the recent literature on this entity. (thefreelibrary.com)
  • To the best of our knowledge, no case of primary bone lymphoma presenting as XIIth cranial nerve palsy has been previously reported in the literature. (thefreelibrary.com)
  • Hearing
  • One such organization is the National Temporal Bone, Hearing and Balance Pathology Resource Registry , or the National Temporal Bone Registry for short. (healthyhearing.com)
  • Well, it all comes down to hearing and balance - two processes of the body that take place deep inside the ear and the temporal bones that protect the hearing mechanism. (healthyhearing.com)
  • Research on living subjects is not always a viable option because of the location of hearing parts and the temporal bone. (healthyhearing.com)
  • And because research is difficult if not impossible with living test subjects, research on hearing loss and balance disorders is conducted on temporal bones that have been generously and selflessly donated by individuals who recognized the importance of this vital research. (healthyhearing.com)
  • Finding cures for hearing loss and balance discorders is difficult but any caring person can help by becoming a registered donor with the National Temporal Bone Registry. (healthyhearing.com)
  • The mechanisms used to enable hearing and maintain balanced coordination are located deep within the skull, protected by the temporal bones of the skull. (healthyhearing.com)
  • During life, these temporal bones and hearing mechanism are needed to hear and to protect the inner workings of the ear. (healthyhearing.com)
  • However, after death, when the hearing mechanism and temporal bones are no longer needed, these body parts are an important component in the on-going research into the causes of hearing loss and balance disorders. (healthyhearing.com)
  • The most common symptom of primarylymphoma of the temporal bone is hearing loss. (thefreelibrary.com)
  • complications
  • This is also why a thorough understanding of the etiology, classification, complications, and treatment of temporal bone fractures is mandatory for healthcare professionals involved in the care of individuals with such injuries. (medscape.com)
