Removing Foreign Bodies From the Maxillary Sinus: Sinus Area Classification and Technique Selection.

Compend Contin Educ Dent 2021 Oct;42(9):e5-e8

President, Dental Implant Institute, Las Vegas, Nevada.

The displacement or invasion of a foreign object (eg, amalgam, dental bur, dental cement, dental implant) into the maxillary sinus can lead to various negative sequelae. Several techniques have been described for the removal of such objects, but although all of them require correct diagnosis and accurate determination of the exact size and location of the foreign object before the removal procedure is performed, high postoperative complication rates often result from these invasive procedures. The authors propose the categorization of two different types of maxillary sinus areas that can be invaded by dental implants and/or foreign objects; diagnosis and treatment are predicated on differentiating and/or identifying these two spaces.

Metallic foreign body adjacent to the round window: a rare cause for chronic tympanic membrane perforation with hearing loss.

BMJ Case Rep 2021 May 20;14(5). Epub 2021 May 20.

School of Medicine, The University of Western Australia, Perth, Western Australia, Australia.

Welding injuries to the tympanic membrane (TM) or middle ear are rare but can cause significant damage. These injuries occur when a hot spark or molten slag drops directly into the external auditory canal and through the action of gravity (because the ear is upright during such an injury), then risks burning through the TM. This can lead to a multitude of adverse consequences including chronic TM perforation, secondary purulent otorrhoea, facial palsy, taste disturbance, vertigo and hearing loss. Read More

Introduction And Importance: In the era of both new bilateral hypoglossal nerve stimulator and long-standing experience with Sistrunk's procedures, it is notable that the literature scarcely describes high anterior neck approaches, tending to focus on transoral removal of intra-glossal foreign bodies. Herein we describe a case of a low morbidity anterior approach for access to an intra-glossal foreign body and discuss the implications.

Case Presentation: A morbidly obese 73 year old lady presented acutely after inadvertent ingestion of a sewing needle. Read More
