Estimation of nares-to-epiglottis distance for selecting an appropriate nasopharyngeal airway.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2019 Mar;98(10):e14832

Department of Anesthesiology, Tri-Service General Hospital and National Defense Medical Center, Taipei, Taiwan.

The nasopharyngeal airway is an important equipment in airway management, a correct placement is crucial for its effectiveness. We measured the nares-to-epiglottis distance (NED) and examined the correlations of the optimal insertion length (NED-1) with patient characteristics and various external facial measurements. We aimed to develop a simple method for estimating the optimal insertion length and to help select an appropriate nasopharyngeal airway. Read More

The benefit of trans-attic endoscopic control of ossicular prosthesis after cholesteatoma surgery.

Laryngoscope 2019 Jan 30. Epub 2019 Jan 30.

ENT Department, Hamad Medical Corporation, Doha, Qatar.

Objective: To show the efficiency of using transmastoid atticotomy (TMA) endoscopy on the outcome of ossiculoplasty in patients with cholesteatoma. TMA is often performed as part of the surgical management of patients with middle ear cholesteatoma extending to the epitympanum. TMA can also be used as an access for endoscopic view to confirm the right alignment and stability of the ossicular prosthesis because the reconstruction of the tympanic membrane will obscure the visualization of the prosthesis.

KTP-laser-assisted endoscopic management of glomus tympanicum tumors: A case series.

Ear Nose Throat J 2018 Dec;97(12):399-402

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Stanford University School of Medicine, 801 Welch Rd., Stanford, CA 94035, USA.

Endoscopic technology is widely used in rhinology and anterior skull base surgery, but it has been less quickly incorporated into otologic practice. The design of the instrumentation forces surgeons to work one-handed and limits depth perception. Nevertheless, endoscopy also offers wide fields of view and access to spaces that are typically difficult to visualize. Read More

Assessment of Middle Ear Anatomy Teaching Methodologies Using Microscopy versus Endoscopy: A Randomized Comparative Study.

Anat Sci Educ 2018 Nov 14. Epub 2018 Nov 14.

Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, Inselspital, University Hospital and University of Bern, Bern, Switzerland.

Teaching methodologies for the anatomy of the middle ear have not been investigated greatly due to the middle ear's highly complex structure and hidden location inside of the temporal bone. The aim of this randomized study was to quantitatively compare the suitability of using microscope- and endoscope-based methods for teaching the anatomy of the middle ear. We hypothesize that the endoscopic approach will be more efficient compared to the microscopic approach. Read More

Comparison of two techniques for transpharyngeal endoscopic auditory tube diverticulotomy in the horse.

J Vet Sci 2018 Nov;19(6):835-839

Department of Clinical Sciences, Colorado State University, Fort Collins, CO 80523, USA.

Auditory tube diverticula, also known as guttural pouches, are naturally occurring dilations of the auditory tube in horses that communicate with the nasopharynx through a small ostium. Infection and select other conditions can result in inflammation and narrowing of the nasopharyngeal ostium, which prevents drainage of fluid or egress of air and can lead to persistent infection or guttural pouch tympany. Auditory tube diverticulotomy allows continuous egress from the auditory tube diverticula and is a feature of disease treatment in horses, in which medical treatment alone is not successful.

Department of Surgery, Division of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, University of Utah, 50 North Medical Dr., SOM 3C120, Salt Lake City, Utah 84132, USA.

We describe a unique case of a 62-year-old patient with recurrent right submandibular sialadenitis. He initially appeared to have extensive sialolithiasis of the right submandibular duct on computed tomography imaging and examination, but sialendoscopy demonstrated a normal-appearing right submandibular duct. An accessory duct posterior and parallel to the normal duct was identified at the time of sialendoscopy and was found to have extensive sialolithiasis, which required removal by both an endoscopic and intraoral technique.

Intra and interobserver agreement of narrow band imaging for the detection of head and neck tumors.

Eur Arch Otorhinolaryngol 2018 Sep 17;275(9):2349-2354. Epub 2018 Jul 17.

Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Hospital Clínic, Villarroel 170, 08036, Barcelona, Catalunya, Spain.

Background: Narrow band imaging (NBI) in combination with white light endoscopy (WLE) has improved the accuracy for the diagnosis and follow-up of head and neck carcinomas by identifying changes in the vascular patterns of the mucosa. However, NBI evaluation is explorer-dependent and may be influenced by the learning curve. The aim of this study is to assess the intra and interobserver agreement of NBI and WLE at the office, under local anaesthesia, by either experienced or non-experienced observers. Read More

Intraoperative thermal safety of endoscopic ear surgery utilizing a holder.

Am J Otolaryngol 2018 Sep - Oct;39(5):585-591. Epub 2018 Jul 2.

Bezmialem Vakif University, Faculty of Medicine, Department of Otorhinolaryngology, Fatih, Istanbul, Turkey.

Purpose: Despite the ever-growing popularity of endoscopic ear surgery (EES), there are still concerns regarding the potential thermal risk associated with the use of light sources and also questions raised about the thermal safety of extended stationary applications of endoscopes with holders that allow the use of both hands in the middle ear. The temperature changes witnessed during EES when using different calipers on static endoscopes fitted with camera holders during true operations were measured, and effects of varying light source intensities, as well as the cooling effect of irrigation and suction, were investigated.

Methods: This study included 12 patients with chronic otitis who were scheduled to undergo myringoplasty surgery. Read More
