We assessed the prevalence of superior semicircular canal dehiscence (SSCD) through examination of ultrahigh-resolution computed tomography (CT) scans of the temporal bone and attempted to verify the correspondence between a radiologic diagnosis of SSCD and clinical signs of SSCD syndrome.
A prospective study was carried out on 191 consecutive patients who underwent temporal bone ultrahigh-resolution CT scans. Cases that matched the radiologic diagnosis of SSCD were subsequently referred for a comprehensive audiological evaluation that might enable a final diagnosis of SSCD syndrome.

The aim of this study was to compare the incidence of complications of endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS) to the incidence of complications of traditional and microscopic sinus surgery. A meta-analysis was carried out on 28 series of patients (a total of 13,405) who had undergone ESS, 8 series of patients (3,887 in total) who had undergone traditional endonasal sinus surgery and 7 series of patients (1,630 in total) who had undergone microscopic sinus surgery. The authors used the Bayesian inference package WinBUGS operating from within the statistical computer program R (version 2.

Despite their histological resemblance to colorectal adenocarcinoma, there is little information on the molecular events involved in the pathogenesis of intestinal-type sinonasal adenocarcinoma (ITACs). The aim of this paper is to evaluate the possible role of TP53 and Bcl-2 gene defects in ITAC by investigating the immunohistochemical expression of TP53 and Bcl-2 gene products in a group of ethmoidal ITACs associated with occupational exposure. A retrospective study on 15 patients with pathological diagnosis of primary ethmoidal ITAC was conducted.
