Prevalence Ratio of Otitis Media with Effusion in Laryngopharyngeal Reflux.

Int J Otolaryngol 2019 1;2019:7460891. Epub 2019 Jan 1.

Faculty of Medicine, Public Health and Nursing Gadjah Mada University/Sardjito General Hospital, Yogyakarta, Indonesia.

Background: Otitis media with effusion (OME) in adults is less prevalent than in the pediatric population but still causes considerable morbidity. It has been suggested that laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR) may have a role in the aetiology of adult OME. Reflux advances to the laryngopharynx and, subsequently, to other regions of the head and neck such as oral cavity, nasopharynx, nasal cavity, paranasal sinuses, and even middle ear with clinical manifestations being asthma, sinusitis, and otitis media.

Congenital Midline Cervical Cleft and W-Plasty: Our Experience.

Int J Otolaryngol 2018 2;2018:5081540. Epub 2018 Dec 2.

Department of Pediatric Otolaryngology, Robert Debre University Hospital, Paris, France.

Objectives: Congenital midline cervical cleft (CMCC) is a very uncommon congenital anomaly of the midline anterior neck, and although it has very pathognomonic features (including nipple-like protuberance), it could be mistaken for other congenital neck lesions, such as thyroglossal duct cyst and branchial apparatus anomalies. Thus, it represents a challenging diagnosis. In this 21-patient series, we discuss the clinical features of CMCC, its pathophysiology characteristics, and its modalities management. Read More

An Improved Method for Temporary Suture Medialisation of the Middle Turbinates following Endoscopic Sinus Surgery.

Int J Otolaryngol 2018 2;2018:9093545. Epub 2018 Sep 2.

Department of Otolaryngology, Head & Neck Surgery, University of Sydney/Westmead Hospital, Sydney, NSW, Australia.

Background: Middle turbinate (MT) lateralisation with adhesion formation (MiTLAF) is a common complication following endoscopic sinus surgery, frequently resulting in surgical failure, persistence of preoperative symptoms, and delayed secondary complications. Packing materials, splints, or spacers reduce the risk of MiTLAF but often result in postoperative nasal obstruction and discomfort, along with reduced access for irrigation. Temporary suture medialisation of the MTs reduces the risk of MiTLAF and prevents the problems encountered with packing, splints, or spacers. Read More

Bone-Anchored Titanium Implants in Patients with Auricular Defects: Three Years and 27 Patients' Experience.

Int J Otolaryngol 2016 9;2016:9872048. Epub 2016 Nov 9.

Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Fornaroli Hospital, 20013 Magenta, Italy.

Different surgical solutions have been proposed for reconstruction of the auricle following loss of the pinna through traumatic injury or neoplastic disease or in patients with congenital defects. Surgical treatment may involve the insertion of an autogenous rib cartilage framework or the use of a porous polymer material inserted into an expanded postauricular flap. Reconstruction with rib cartilage has yielded good results but requires more than one surgical step, and adverse events can occur both at the donor and at the acceptor site; cases of prosthesis rejection have also been described following application of the polymeric prosthesis.
