Strategies for the practice of otolaryngology and head and neck surgery during the monitoring phase of COVID-19.

Acta Otorrinolaringol Esp 2020 May 25. Epub 2020 May 25.

Servicio de Otorrinolaringología, Hospital Can Misses, Ibiza, España. Electronic address:

The appearance of a new coronavirus disease called COVID-19 at the end of 2019 and its pandemic expansion in the world has changed the usual practice of the specialty of Otorhinolaryngology (ENT). After a phase of exponential growth of infections, it has been possible to enter a phase of control of the spread of the disease in which the possibility of infection persists, and the appearance of new cases is considered acceptable by the health system. The aim of this document is to review the available evidence and propose strategies and recommendations for the medical-surgical practice of otorhinolaryngology and head and neck surgery, which allow establishing the usual activity, adapting the safety and efficacy standards to the current situation.

Early glottic tumours with anterior commissure involvement. Literature review and consensus document. Headand Neck and Skull Base Commission, SEORL-CCC.

Acta Otorrinolaringol Esp 2020 Jun 9. Epub 2020 Jun 9.

Hospital San Pedro, Logroño, España. Electronic address:

The choice of the most appropriate treatment in early-stage glottic cancer with anterior commissure involvement remains controversial. Its therapeutic management is complex because it is a significant prognostic indicator of local control with 37% recurrence, due to the difficulty in establishing tumour extension with understaging of up to 40%, and due to the comparison of results in series on tumours that behave variably as they progress, such as T1a, T1b and T2a with commissure involvement. Furthermore, the complexity of the surgical approach using transoral CO2 laser microsurgery requires surgical skill, appropriate equipment and experience. Read More

Consensus document of the Spanish Society of Intensive and Critical Care Medicine and Coronary Units (SEMICYUC), the Spanish Society of Otorhinolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery (SEORL-CCC) and the Spanish Society of Anesthesiology and Resuscitation (SEDAR) on tracheotomy in patients with COVID-19 infection.

Acta Otorrinolaringol Esp 2020 May 11. Epub 2020 May 11.

Servicio Medicina Intensiva, Hospital Universitario de Torrejón, Universidad Francisco de Vitoria, Torrejón de Ardoz, Madrid, España.

The current COVID-19 pandemic has rendered up to 15% of patients under mechanical ventilation. Because the subsequent tracheotomy is a frequent procedure, the three societies mostly involved (SEMICYUC, SEDAR and SEORL-CCC) have setup a consensus paper that offers an overview about indications and contraindications of tracheotomy, be it by puncture or open, clarifying its respective advantages and enumerating the ideal conditions under which they should be performed, as well as the necessary steps. Regular and emergency situations are displayed together with the postoperative measures. Read More

Application of Wireless Contralateral Routing of Signal (CROS) Technology in Unilateral Cochlear Implant Users.

Acta Otorrinolaringol Esp 2020 Mar 16. Epub 2020 Mar 16.

Introduction: Single cochlear implantation usually provides substantial speech intelligibility benefits but bilaterally deaf, unilaterally implanted subjects will continue to experience limitations due to the head shadow effect, like single-sided deaf individuals. In the treatment of individuals with single-sided deafness one option is contralateral routing of signal (CROS) devices, which constitute a non-surgical intervention of the second ear in unilaterally implanted individuals.

Method: Twelve experienced adult cochlear implant users with Naída Q70 processor and the CROS device used in combination participated in the study. Read More

Reconstruction using facial artery system-based flaps. One vascular system for multiple purposes in head and neck reconstructive surgery.

Acta Otorrinolaringol Esp 2020 Mar 3. Epub 2020 Mar 3.

Unidad de Cirugía Oncológica y Reconstructiva de Cabeza y Cuello, Servicio de Otorrinolaringología y Cirugía de Cabeza y Cuello, Hospital Universitario Donostia, Donostia/San Sebastián, Gipuzkoa, España.

Introduction: to review the modifications and advances in reconstructive surgery of the soft tissues of the oral cavity exclusively based on flaps that depend on the facial artery system.

Methods: review of the literature regarding oral cavity reconstructions based on main facial artery system flaps.

Discussion: The reconstruction of the soft tissues of the oral cavity, based on facial artery system flaps, offers satisfactory results and allows limited reconstructions avoiding the use of pedicled regional flaps or free flaps. Read More

Clinical Profile and Results Obtained in Patients Treated by Auditory Brainstem Implants.

Acta Otorrinolaringol Esp 2020 Jul - Aug;71(4):225-234. Epub 2020 Jan 11.

Departamento de Otorrinolaringología, Clínica Universidad de Navarra, Pamplona, España.

Introduction: Cochlear implants have been able to treat some types of hearing loss, but those related to cochlear nerve impairment made it necessary to find new ways to manage these deficits; leading to auditory brainstem implants (ABI).

Aim: Our objective is to present the clinical profile of patients treated through an ABI and the results obtained from 1997 to 2017.

Material And Methods: On the one hand, patients with statoacoustic nerve tumours (VIIIcranial nerve) were selected, and on the other hand, patients withoutVIII tumours with congenital malformations of the inner ear. Read More

Prognostic value of nodal involvement in patients with oropharyngeal carcinoma according to the HPV status.

Acta Otorrinolaringol Esp 2020 Jul - Aug;71(4):212-218. Epub 2020 Jan 7.

Servicio de Otorrinolaringología, Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Barcelona, España; Centro de Investigación Biomédica en Red de Bioingeniería, Biomateriales y Nanomedicina (CIBER-BBN), Madrid, España.

Background And Objective: Different studies performed in populations with a high incidence of HPV infection have found no prognostic capacity of clinical nodal involvement (cN+) in patients with HPV-positive oropharyngeal carcinomas. The objective of this study was to assess the prognostic ability of nodal involvement in patients with oropharyngeal carcinomas according to HPV status in a cancer population with a low incidence of HPV infection.

Material And Methods: Retrospective study of a cohort of 420 patients with oropharyngeal carcinomas treated during the period 1990-2016 for whom information on HPV status was available. Read More

Contralateral occlusion test: The effect of external ear canal occlusion on predicting conductive hearing loss.

Acta Otorrinolaringol Esp 2020 Jul - Aug;71(4):235-241. Epub 2019 Dec 31.

Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, Egas Moniz Hospital, Centro Hospitalar de Lisboa Ocidental (CHLO), Lisbon, Portugal; Department of Otorhinolaryngology, NOVA Medical School - Faculdade de Ciências Médicas, Lisbon, Portugal.

Introduction And Objectives: The contralateral occlusion test (COT) has the potential to allow the quantitative evaluation of unilateral conductive hearing loss. The purpose of this study was to determine the accuracy of the test in predicting the degree of hearing loss.

Materials And Methods: Fifty-three subjects with unilateral conductive hearing loss were recruited from an otolaryngology department of a tertiary hospital. Read More
