Am J Otolaryngol 2020 Jul 4;41(6):102635. Epub 2020 Jul 4.

Department of Otolaryngology, Henry Ford Hospital, 2799 West Grand Blvd, Detroit, MI 48202, USA.

Purpose: Odontogenic sinusitis is underrepresented in sinusitis literature as well as in the otolaryngology teaching curriculum sponsored by the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery. Otolaryngologists and residents in training may therefore have a decreased awareness of the condition. The objective of this study was to survey otolaryngology chief residents toward the ends of their training to determine how often they considered odontogenic sinusitis as a cause of unilateral sinus disease.

Ultrasound dye-assisted parathyroidectomy (USDAP): Experience of a tertiary center.

Am J Otolaryngol 2020 May 29:102558. Epub 2020 May 29.

Department of Otorhinolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery, European Institute of Oncology, IRCCS, Via Ripamonti 435, 20141 Milan, Italy.

Background: Primary hyperparathyroidism is primarily caused by parathyroid adenoma, followed by hyperplasia and parathyroid carcinoma. In the era of minimally invasive, targeted parathyroidectomy, the main challenge remains that of distinguishing intraoperatively pathological parathyroid from normal glands and peri-thyroid fat tissue. The aim of this study is to evaluate the surgical outcomes of a novel minimally invasive technique called ultrasound-guided dye-assisted parathyroidectomy (USDAP). Read More

Cerebellopontine angle (CPA) tumours account for 6-10% of intracranial tumours. The most common CPA tumours are vestibular schwannomas (VS), also known as acoustic neuromas, benign tumours of the vestibulocochlear nerve. Less common but symptomatic skull base lesions are glomus jugulare tumours (GJT), of which approximately 40% are identified as CPA tumours. Read More

Sleep disordered breathing in children with trisomy 13 and trisomy 18.

Am J Otolaryngol 2020 May 26:102555. Epub 2020 May 26.

University of California - San Diego School of Medicine, 9500 Gilman Dr, La Jolla, CA 92093, USA; Rady Children's Hospital of San Diego, Division of Pediatric Otolaryngology, 3020 Children's Way, San Diego, CA 92123, USA. Electronic address:

Purpose: While the prevalence of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is well documented in trisomy 21, there has been little published about the incidence in trisomy 13 (T13) and trisomy 18 (T18). Trisomies 13, 18, and 21 have overlapping clinical features that make patients prone to OSA. Because the literature regarding OSA in T13 and T18 children is limited, we performed a retrospective chart review to investigate the characteristics of these patients. Read More

The practicality of a two-incision surgical approach for hypoglossal nerve stimulator implantation.

Am J Otolaryngol 2020 Jun 1;41(5):102585. Epub 2020 Jun 1.

Cleveland Clinic, Head and Neck Institute, Cleveland, OH, USA.

Introduction: Determine the feasibility of a two-incision surgical approach to hypoglossal nerve stimulator implantation based on anatomic considerations.

Methods: Upper airway stimulation (UAS) using the Inspire system uses three implanted devices-the implantable pulse generator (IPG), stimulation lead and sensing chest wall lead. The traditional surgical approach requires three skin incisions located on the submandibular neck, anterosuperior chest wall and inferolateral chest wall. Read More

Purpose: Nasal douching is commonly used as a postoperative management strategy for chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyps (CRSwNP). Few studies to date have compared the effectiveness of nasal douching in CRSwNP phenotypes after endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS). We evaluated the efficacy of seawater types in eosinophilic CRSwNP (ECRSwNP) and noneosinophilic CRSwNP (nonECRSwNP) after ESS. Read More

Low expression of miR-20b-5p indicates favorable prognosis in laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma, especially in patients with non-infiltrated regional lymph nodes.

Am J Otolaryngol 2020 May 27;41(5):102563. Epub 2020 May 27.

Third Department of Surgery, University General Hospital "Attikon", Faculty of Medicine, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Athens, Greece.

Purpose: Tumor recurrence and distant metastasis are very common in laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma (LSCC). In this study, we examined the potential prognostic value of microRNA-20b-5p (miR-20b-5p), a component of the tumor-related miR-106a/363 cluster.

Materials And Methods: Total RNA was purified from 105 tissue specimens resected from patients having undergone surgical treatment for primary LSCC. Read More

The association of smoking and outcomes in HPV-positive oropharyngeal cancer: A systematic review.

Am J Otolaryngol 2020 Jun 2;41(5):102592. Epub 2020 Jun 2.

Department of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery, Washington University School of Medicine, Saint Louis, MO, USA. Electronic address:

Purpose: While smoking is linked to worse outcomes for human papillomavirus (HPV)-related oropharyngeal squamous cell cancer (OPSCC), the magnitude of this association and the amount of smoking exposure necessary to confer clinically significant differences in outcomes is unclear. Recent studies suggested that greater tobacco exposure results in higher risk of cancer progression and death. Our study objective was to perform a systematic review of the association between smoking and HPV-related OPSCC outcomes. Read More

Photonics Engineering Group, Universidad de Cantabria, Santander, Spain. Electronic address:

The coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 (COVID19) pandemic has pushed health workers to find creative solutions to a global shortage of personal protection equipment (PPE). 3D-printing technology is having an essential role during the pandemic providing solutions for this problem, for instance, modifying full-face snorkel masks or creating low-cost face shields to use as PPE (Ishack and Lipner, 2020 [1]). Otolaryngologists are at increased occupational risk to COVID19 infection due to the exposure to respiratory droplets and aerosols, especially during the routine nose and mouth examinations where coughing and sneezing happen regularly (Rna et al.
