MPV Values in Children with Adenoid Hy-pertrophy and Correlation with Adenoid Size

Esra Akyüz Ozkan
Background: Adenoid hypertrophy (AH) leads to chronic upper airway obstruction. Upper airway obstruction may cause pulmonary hypertension and right ventricle dysfunction. Mean platelet volume (MPV) may be used as a marker of platelet activation and it is shown that MPV is related to cardiovascular disorders. We investigated in our study if MPV is correlated with adenoid size and can be used as an indicator of obstruction due to adenoid hypertrophy. Methods: 95 children with AH and 99 healthy con...

Device Fixation in Cochlear Implant Surgery: Bone Well vs. Subperiosteal Muscle Pocket Technique

Raquel A. Lauria, Gisele M. Truzzi, Alexandre Caixeta Guimaraes, Silvia Badur Curi, Arthut M. Castilho, Jorge Rizzato Paschoal, Walter Adriano Bianchini, Guilherme Machado de Carvalho
Introduction: Cochlear implantation (CI) is a worldwide procedure that provides hearing rehabilitation and improves speech perception. One of the described complications is the device migration, which can result of failure of receiver-stimulator (R/S) fixation. This study aims to describe the outcomes of cochlear implant receiver-stimulator (RS) placement (bone well and the subperiosteral temporal pocket technique without fixation). Methods: A retrospective case review is developed in tertiary c...
