Using anxiolytics in a pediatric otolaryngology clinic to avoid the operating room.

Int J Pediatr Otorhinolaryngol 2019 Feb 5;120:73-77. Epub 2019 Feb 5.

Division of Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, University of Utah, Salt Lake City, UT, USA. Electronic address:

Introduction: There is increasing concern regarding the risks associated with the use of general anesthesia in pediatric patients. Many otolaryngologic procedures performed under general anesthesia can also be performed in clinic. We hypothesize that anxiolytics can aid in performing common procedures in clinic thus avoiding the need to undergo general anesthesia in the OR. Read More

Authors:
Leslie C Oyama

Emerg Med Clin North Am 2019 Feb;37(1):121-130

Department of Emergency Medicine, UC San Diego, 200 West Arbor Drive, MC 8676, San Diego, CA 92103-8676, USA. Electronic address:

Foreign bodies to the ear, nose, and throat often can be managed in the emergency department, particularly if the patient offers a history consistent with foreign body and is calm and compliant with the examination and removal attempts. Tips for success include analgesia, adequate visualization, immobilization of the patient's head, dexterity and experience level of the provider, and minimizing attempts at removal. It is critical to recognize the risks involved with certain retained objects (button batteries or sharp objects) and when to call a consultant to help facilitate safe, successful removal of objects to the ear, nose, and throat.

A Foreign Body (Toothbrush) in the Esophagus of a Patient with Hiatal Hernia.

Case Rep Gastroenterol 2017 Jan-Apr;11(1):184-189. Epub 2017 Apr 10.

aClinical Department for Ear Nose and Throat, Split University Hospital Center, Split, Croatia.

Toothbrush ingestion is rare and most commonly seen in patients with psychiatric comorbidities and in young women with a medical history of eating disorders who try to induce emesis. Long ingested objects, such as a toothbrush, cannot pass the gastrointestinal tract spontaneously and require endoscopic removal or even a surgical approach in cases of unsuccessful endoscopic removal or complication development. We present a case of a 71-year-old male with hiatal hernia without psychiatric or neurological comorbidity who accidentally ingested a toothbrush during oral hygiene routine. Read More

Ultrasound-Assisted Removal of A Fishbone Stuck in A Tongue in the Emergency Department.

J Emerg Med 2017 May 28;52(5):e175-e177. Epub 2017 Feb 28.

Department of Emergency Medicine, Long Island Jewish Medical Center, New Hyde Park, New York.

Background: Foreign body (FB) impaction in the oropharyngeal region-and specifically the tongue-is a common problem in the emergency department that often requires specialty consultation and admission for operative intervention. Over the years, the use of point of care ultrasound (POCUS) has increased ease and success of FB removal in other anatomic regions, but is only rarely reported for extraction of FB from the tongue outside of the operating room.

Case Report: This case demonstrates a unique case of ultrasound-guided removal of a fishbone from the tongue in the emergency department after blind attempts failed. Read More

Int J Pediatr Otorhinolaryngol 2016 Aug 6;87:198-202. Epub 2016 Jun 6.

Naval Medical Center Portsmouth, Department of Otolaryngology, 620 John Paul Jones Circle, Portsmouth, VA 23708, USA.

Objectives: To complement a case series review of button battery impactions managed at our single military tertiary care center with a thorough literature review of laboratory research and clinical cases to develop a protocol to optimize patient care. Specifically, to identify predictive factors of long-term complications which can be used by the pediatric otolaryngologist to guide patient management after button battery impactions.

[The application of the lyophilized xenodermoimplants for the plastic correction of the external auditory canal and nasal septum perforation].

Vestn Otorinolaringol 2016 ;81(3):21-22

Russian University of People's Friendship, Moscow, Russia, 117198.

The objective of the present work was to improve the effectiveness of the treatment of atresia of the external auditory canal (EAC). Atresia of external acoustic meatus is a result of a mechanical or thermal injury but can also develop after a surgical intervention for the removal of foreign bodies, benign and malignant tumours. This condition is frequently associated with the narrowing and obliteration of EAC leading to the marked impairment of hearing despite preservation of the middle ear structures. Read More

Treatment of Penetrating Nonmissile Traumatic Brain Injury. Case Series and Review of the Literature.

World Neurosurg 2016 Jul 9;91:297-307. Epub 2016 Apr 9.

Department of Neurosurgery, SUNY Upstate Medical University, Syracuse, New York, USA.

Introduction: Penetrating traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), with the exception of gunshot wounds, are relatively rare occurrences and affect all ages. Clinical presentation varies depending on the mechanism of the injury. Prompt surgical treatment is often indicated and is influenced by patient clinical examination, anatomic trajectory, and the penetrating object's size, shape, and velocity. Read More

Department of Neurosurgery, Center of Neurology and Neurosurgery Associates, Hospital Beneficência Portuguesa de São Paulo-SP, Brazil.

Objective: The objective of this study is to present a case series of nonmissile penetrating (NMP) injuries and to establish a workflow for an uncommon mechanism of traumatic head injury through the analysis of each case, classification of the type of lesion, management, and outcome score at follow-up.

Methods: From January 1991 to December 2008, 36,000 patients presenting with traumatic brain injury (TBI) were admitted in the Department of Neurosurgery, Hospital Antônio Targino, Campina Grande-PB, Brazil. From these patients, 11 presenting with lesions caused by NMP objects were selected. Read More

Earlobe Inflammation from a Palm Thorn Injury.

Am J Trop Med Hyg 2016 May 22;94(5):1182-3. Epub 2016 Feb 22.

Department of Family Medicine, Siaal Family Medicine and Primary Care Research Center, Faculty of Health Sciences, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Beer-Sheva, Israel; Clalit Health Services, Southern District, Beer-Sheva, Israel

Injury from the thorn of a palm tree is characterized by a prolonged, painful inflammatory reaction. Even when the source of the inflammation is diagnosed, appropriate treatment is usually delayed because family doctors are not familiar with the entity. Penetration of a palm thorn into the earlobe is an unrecognized cause of local inflammation. Read More

We report a 3-year-old child with history of congenital nasolacrimal duct obstruction who failed lacrimal probing and underwent bicanalicular intubation. Removal of stent from the superior punctum was unsuccessful and it was trapped in the lacrimal sac. We performed endonasal endoscopic-assisted retrieval of retained stent material without necessitating dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR). Read More

Retained crossbow bolt after penetrating facial trauma.

Ear Nose Throat J 2016 Jan;95(1):E1-4

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, University of Connecticut School of Medicine, Farmington, CT, USA.

We present an unusual case of a retained crossbow bolt in the maxillofacial area of a 31-year-old man. While crossbow injuries are rare, this case is of interest because otolaryngologists are often faced with treating retained foreign objects after penetrating facial trauma. These cases are difficult to manage because of the complexity and variety of injuries that can occur during both the initial trauma and the removal. Read More
