Objective: To delineate the steps of exoscopic en bloc carotid artery-sparing total temporal bone resection for malignancies involving the temporal bone in a cadaveric model.Methods: Dissections were performed on 3 right-sided (3 sides) formalin-fixed, latex-injected cadaveric specimens. An exoscopic en bloc carotid artery-sparing total temporal bone resection was performed on each cadaver. Read More

We retrospectively analyzed the diagnosis and treatment process of one patient with recurrent undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma (UPS) of infratemporal fossa and made a definite diagnosis by combining the imaging and pathological examination results. After treatment failure with 2 cycles of chemotherapy and several surgeries, UPS was eventually treated by surgery + carbon ion radiotherapy, and MRI reexamination showed no relapse. Head and neck UPS is located deeply, easily recurs after operation, and difficult to be resected completely by surgery, with a gradually shortened interval of relapse over the number of surgeries, which becomes a treatment challenge.

Adenotonsillectomies are one of the most common otolaryngologic surgeries performed to alleviate obstructive sleep-disordered breathing and apnea in children. The pain management following adenotonsillectomy continues to be a challenge for both pediatric anesthesiologists and otolaryngologists due to the mortality that stems from the use of opioid pain medications in children who have an increased baseline risk airway obstruction and apnea that is exacerbated by any exposure to opioids. We present a case utilizing bilateral suprazygomatic maxillary nerve (SZMN) blocks or, more accurately, suprazygomatic infratemporal-pterygopalatine fossa injections to achieve opioid-free perioperative analgesia for pediatric adenotonsillectomy with nasal turbinate reduction.
