Iversen P B - - 1977
A case of lateral hypopharyngeal diverticula is reported. This type of diverticula is comparatively rare. The diagnosis can be made clinically and confirmed by x-ray examination and hypopharyngoscopy. A pharyngocoele is of differential importance as this may be present in many patients during Valsalva, but does not indicate treatment. The ...

Monozygotic female twins were concordant for tracheo-esophageal fistula (TEF); and one twin also manifested other anomalies in the VATER association, including agenesis of the female reproductive tract. Review of the literature discloses a familial tendency for recurrence of TEF and a high concordance rate in monozygotic twins, indicating a significant ...

Laryngotracheoesophageal cleft was reported by Richter in 1792 after he examined an infant at autopsy and found a common lumen of esophagus and laryngotrachea. The next case was not noted until 1949 by Finlay. A recent review shows 40 cases in the world literature to date. Successful surgical approaches to ...

We report a case of nipple hypertrophy in male gynecomastia. By raising 4 small quadrant flaps on the areolar-nipple junction, we were able to do an appropriate core excision of the gynecomastia and hypertrophied nipple--and closure of the flaps produced a small simulated nipple.

The idea of reincarnation is presented as having considerable explanatory value for several features of human personality and biology that currently accepted theories do not adequately clarify. Reincarnation is not offered as a substitute for present knowledge derived from genetics and understanding of environmental influences; it may, however, usefully supplement ...

A five-year-old boy is presented with an undifferentiated myopathy, retinitis pigmentosa, incomplete cleft lip, short stature (less than third percentile), mild delay in development, and seizures. To date, no etiology or pathogenetic mechanism has been discovered to account for these, and no similar cases have been encountered in the literature.

The case of a 74-year-old woman with the rare popliteal pterygium syndrome is presented. This syndrome is inherited as an autosomal dominant trait with incomplete penetrance and varying expression and consists of cleft lip and palate, lip pits, genital anomalies, popliteal pterygium, and malformations of the extremities. The various treatments ...

The literature on oral teratomata is reviewed, and a theory for the embryological basis for these malformations is presented. We present an unusual case of Class III (Schwalbe) teratoma, in association with a complete cleft of the hard palate. Corrective surgery was required in the neonatal period.
Montgomery W W - - 1976
Two types of congenital laryngeal defects in the adult are presented. The first case is a patient with a laryngeal cleft who became symptomatic at 42 years of age. Dysphagia, dyspnea, hoarseness and aspiration progressed in severity until surgery was necessary at the age of 48 years. The second case ...
Tessier P - - 1976
Based on personal observations a new classification of facial, cranio-facial and latero-facial clefts is proposed. The orbit is used as the primary structure of reference. Fifteen locations for clefts can be differentiated. Their course through soft tissues and bone is described in detail and illustrated with typical cases. Combinations of ...

Based on 25 cases with unilateral cleft of lip, alveolus and palate with retromaxillism (CLAP) and 25 cases with pure retromaxillism (RM), the effect on the lip of advancing the maxilla by Le Fort I osteotomy is analysed. It can be shown that on average the base of the upper ...
Rosenmann A - - 1976
A family is described in which a father and son are affected with ectrodactyly, ectodermal dysplasia and cleft palate. This particular constellation of major malformations may constitute a variant form of the EEC syndrome which characteristically includes cleft lip with or without cleft palate. From a review of the cases ...
Foglmann R - - 1976
Six new cases of monoamniotic twins are reported. All had true knots of the cord, the result being double survival in 5 cases and 11 normal children. The mechanism of twin development is described and monoamniotic twins are placed in accordance with the two theories from the literature. A short ...

A 46-year-old man had metastasis to the central tegmental tract of the pons with ipsilateral olivary hypertrophy. Although the phenomenon of palatal myochlonus has been repeatedly correlated with the finding of olivary hypertrophy, no palatal myoclonus was noted on repeated examinations. The clinical pathologic correlates and literature of similar cases ...

Our experience in patients with velopharyngeal incompetence but without overt cleft palate is described, and the literature is reviewed.
Saad E F - - 1975
Out of 2,000 consecutive ear, nose and throat patients, 44 were found with bifid uvulas. Five of the cleft uvulas were associated with submucous cleft palate, and eight were associated with short palates; however, dyslalia was evident in only one case. Compensation for the wide palato-pharyngeal space can occur by ...
Bick W - - 1975
The results of the measurements of upper lips repaired according to a modified Tennison-technique (which has been previously published (Bick 1961) are presented. Contrary to the measurements done at that time after Le-Mesurier-plasty (1949), the present results did not show asymmetry of the upper lip in any case. This is ...

A case is presented of a monozygotic twin pair, discordant for phenotypic sex, in which the female member showed gonadal dysgenesis and chromosomal mosaicism. Review of the pertinent literature reveals that in monozygotic twin pairs, phenotypic and karyotypic concordance is the usual occurrence for Down's and Klinefelter's syndromes, whereas discordance ...

From Tanzania 2 cases are reported, and reference made to a third, of carcinoma arising in the upper lip in relation to a lip-plug, a traditional wooden adornment worm within an orifice in the tissues of the upper lip. Mangement was by excision and repair with a modified Abbe flap.

The embryology, anatomy and pathology of branchial cleft anomalies are discussed and 87 cases reviewed.The most frequent anomaly was branchial cleft cyst, of which there were 77 cases. Treatment in all cases consisted of complete excision.There were five cases of external branchial sinus and five cases of complete branchial fistula. ...

The pre- and post-operative vectorcardiograms of 55 patients with atrial septal defect (ASD) are discussed. Forty-nine were of ostium secundum type and six of ostium primum type. The criteria used to study the regression of right ventricular hypertrophy were: in the horizontal plane, the ratio of anterior-over-posterior forces, the right-over-left ...
