Background: Although modern minimal-invasive paranasal sinus surgery is an integral part of clinical routine of otorhinolaryngologic surgeons, there are no population-based data on incidence and efficiency of this surgery published.
Material And Methods: 1,582 patients underwent paranasal sinus surgery in the 8 Thuringian departments of otorhinolaryngology in 2005. All patients were analysed regarding patients' characteristics, therapy, complications and further course of disease. Read More

Objectives: To evaluate population-based data on incidence of pediatric adenoidectomy and rate of revision surgery.
Methods: A retrospective study of all adenoidectomies in children was performed in the year 2009 in all otolaryngology departments in one federal state, Thuringia, in Germany. Patients' characteristics, preoperative diagnostics and postoperative complications were analyzed. Read More

Objectives/hypothesis: To identify a clinical predictor score for difficult laryngeal exposure (DLE) during operative microlaryngoscopy.
Study Design: Prospective cohort study in two academic institutions.
Methods: We evaluated 319 patients before microlaryngoscopy for benign and malignant glottic diseases by a standardized preoperative assessment protocol (Laryngoscore) that included 11 parameters: interincisors gap (IIG), thyro-mental distance, upper jaw dental status, trismus, mandibular prognathism, macroglossia, micrognathia, degree of neck flexion-extension, history of previous open-neck and/or radiotherapy, Mallampati's modified score, and body mass index (BMI).

Background: Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a new, noninvasive imaging technology for the evaluation of superficial lesions. The objective of this study is to evaluate microlaryngoscopy in combination with OCT compared with microlaryngoscopy alone (ie, without OCT) in supplying a specific diagnosis, predicting invasive tumor growth and epithelial dysplasia in the larynx.
Methods: This was a prospective study including 217 laryngeal lesions in a total of 193 patients undergoing surgery. Read More
