Vestıbular Evoked Myogenıc Potentıals ın Benıgn Paroxysmal Posıtıonal Vertıgo

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.255
Synopsis: 
We investigated the vestibular evoked myogenic potentials (VEMP) findings in benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) patients. Vestibular evoked myogenic potential was performed during the diagnosis, and after the treatment. Our findings showed significantly more abnormal VEMP results in the BPPV group than in the control group subjects.

ABSTRACT

Objective: The aim of this study is to investigate the vestibular evoked myogenic potentials (VEMP) findings in posterior semicircular canal benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) patients.

Methods: Twenty patients with posterior semicircular canal BPPV and 20 healthy control subjects were recruited to participate in this study. VEMP was performed at diagnosis and after treatment.

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.042
Pages: 
533-7
Synopsis: 
The present study included eight cases with pulmonary carcinosarcoma. Pathological diagnosis of PC was made by surgical resection in all patients. Operations were lobectomy (n = 6), bilobectomy inferior (n = 1) and pneumonectomy (n = 1). The median survival time was 21.5 months (range: 1-75 months).

ABSTRACT

Background: Pulmonary carcinosarcoma (PC) is a rare malignant tumour of the lung. Due to its rarity, few studies have been reported and its clinicopathological characteristics and treatment outcomes remain unclear. The aim of the present study was to evaluate clinical, radiological and pathological findings and treatment outcomes of patients with PC.

A Standardized versus an Individualized Approach in Managing Difficult Asthma: A Dilemma

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.219
Synopsis: 
The current case study presents a case of uncontrolled asthma. Spirometery forms one of the important parameters in assessing lung function assessment. Despite the normal values of spirometery, patient clinical presentation did not related to her spirometry values. After troubling four years, doctors initiated Anti-IgE monoclonal antibody therapy that resulted in the patient's improvement. Often, during clinical practices doctors face challenges where they have to make patient decisions based on their clinical expertise rather than following the standard protocols

ABSTRACT

Background: The adherence to clinical practice guidelines often aids in improving clinical decisions. However, doctors at times have to look beyond clinical practice guidelines to treat their patients. Situational awareness and clinical experience often put doctors in a better position to treat and manage asthmatic patients.
