The importance of the quantification of hyoid displacement in the evaluation of the score and evolution of oropharyngeal dysphagia.

Acta Otorrinolaringol Esp 2019 Jan 24. Epub 2019 Jan 24.

Servicio de Medicina Física y Rehabilitación, Hospital de Sant Pau y de la Santa Creu, Barcelona, España.

Introduction And Objectives: The objective of this paper was to show our experience and considerations when quantifying hyoid bone displacement and to observe its correlation with the qualitative scales that evaluate dysphagia.

Methods: Hyoid displacement was assessed using the method described by Molfenter and Steele's group in 2014 in a series of 14 patients affected by oropharyngeal dysphagia. The degree of dysphagia was also qualitatively assessed with the Rosenbek Penetration and Aspiration Scale (PAS) of 1996 and with the Functional Oral Intake Scale (FOIS) of Crary of 2005. Read More

Clinical Practice Guideline recommendations on examination of the upper airway for adults with suspected obstructive sleep apnoea-hypopnoea syndrome.

Acta Otorrinolaringol Esp 2019 Jan 4. Epub 2019 Jan 4.

Servicio de Otorrinolaringología, Unidad Multidisciplinar de Trastornos del Sueño. Hospital Clínic, Barcelona, España; CiIBER-Res, Bunyola, España; Facultat de Medicina, Universitat de Barcelona, Barcelona, España.

In November 2014 the Spanish Society of Otolaryngology, the Spanish Sleep Society and the Spanish Society of Maxillofacial Surgery proposed and endorsed the development of a Clinical Practice Guideline on the physical examination of the upper airway in patients with obstructive sleep apnoea. The Guideline strictly followed the recommendations of the manual for the preparation of clinical practice guidelines of the National Health System 2007 and 2009 and the manual of the Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network (SIGN) 2015. The final document could be highly useful for the purposes that were originally proposed: to act as a reference to unify the regions that should be explored in patients with obstructive sleep apnoea-hypopnoea syndrome, the type of examination and how to grade it, and specific to all the care areas to which these patients have access.

Early diagnosis and treatment of unilateral or asymmetrical hearing loss in children: CODEPEH recommendations.

Acta Otorrinolaringol Esp 2018 Dec 19. Epub 2018 Dec 19.

Vocales de la CODEPEH.

The aim of this document is to improve the management and the treatment of unilateral or asymmetrical hearing loss in children. One in one thousand newborn infants has unilateral hearing loss and this prevalence increases with age, due to cases of acquired and delayed-onset hearing loss. Although the impact on the development and learning processes of children of these kinds of hearing loss have usually been minimized, if they are not treated they will impact on language and speech development, as well as overall development, affecting the quality of life of the child and his/her family.

Validation of the measures of cepstral peak prominence as a measure of dysphonia severity in Spanish-speaking subjects.

Acta Otorrinolaringol Esp 2018 Aug 7. Epub 2018 Aug 7.

Servicio de Otorrinolaringología, Hospital Universitario Central de Asturias, Oviedo, España.

Introduction And Objectives: Perceptual rating of overall voice quality and other more specific perceptual dimensions is difficult, as such judgments depend on the listener's subjectivity. Thus, finding objective, valid, and accessible clinical measures to include in comprehensive voice evaluation protocols is a priority. The purposes of this study were to 1) determine the diagnostic accuracy of a single acoustic measure, smoothed cepstral peak prominence (CPPS), to predict voice disorder status from sustained vowels and connected speech samples using the software Praat; 2) to determine the relationship between measures of CPPS and perceptual ratings of vocal quality; and 3) describe the normative values of CPPS.

Department of Otorhinolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery, Hospital Universitario Central de Asturias, Oviedo, Spain.

Introduction: Contralateral sensorineural hearing loss (CSNHL) after vestibular schwannoma (VS) is a severe complication, especially in those cases in which hearing preservation in the operated side was not possible. There are several theories that attempt to explain this issue, but there is no established guideline of treatment.

Material And Methods: We report 4 patients treated in our institution who developed a severe CSNHL after surgery. Read More

Otolithic damage study in patients with benign paroxysmal positional vertigo with vestibular evoked myogenic potentials.

Acta Otorrinolaringol Esp 2018 Jun 9. Epub 2018 Jun 9.

Instituto Otovértigo, Madrid, España.

Introduction: Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) pathophysiology is based on otoconia migration from the utricle and saccule to the semicircular canals, however, the role of the saccule is still under study. Our aim is to study the otolith damage in these patients with vestibular evoked myogenic potentials (VEMPS) and correlate the results with those of computerised dynamic posturography (CDP).

Material And Methods: We present 79 patients diagnosed with BPPV between March and June 2017. Read More
