Sphenoid sinus mucocele as an unusual differential diagnosis in diving injuries.

Diving Hyperb Med 2020 Jun;50(2):168-172

Underwater and Hyperbaric Medicine Department, Istanbul Faculty of Medicine, Istanbul, Turkey.

Sphenoid sinus mucocele is a rare cystic lesion. It grows gradually and causes visual disturbances, ocular motility abnormalities and headache due to cavernous sinus compression. Sudden change in sinus cavity volume by a barotrauma may compress a mucocele and precipitate symptoms that may easily be confused with decompression sickness. Read More

Volumetric study of the maxillary sinus in patients with sinus pathology.

PLoS One 2020 18;15(6):e0234915. Epub 2020 Jun 18.

Area oh Human Anatomy and Psychobiology, University of Murcia, Murcia, Spain.

Objectives: The aim of this study is 1) to obtain the area and volumes of the maxillary sinuses in patients affected by clinically unilateral sinus pathology by comparing the results to the contralateral sinus and 2) to determine the importance of the volumetric measures when diagnosing the percentage of sinus obliteration.

Materials And Methods: A single-centre observational retrospective clinical study was conducted in 214 patients with clinically unilateral sinus pathologies. Linear (mm), area (mm2) and volume (mm3) measurements were taken from Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) images of the affected sinus as well as from the contralateral ones. Read More

Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Clinical University Hospital of Valencia, INCLIVA, Valencia, Spain; Department of Surgery, School of Medicine, University of Valencia, Valencia, Spain.

The caliber-persistent labial artery (CPLA) is a vascular anomaly in which a main branch of the artery penetrates the submucosal area of the lip without loss of caliber. It commonly presents as an elevated soft tissue mass and is often pulsatile on manual palpation. Clinical suspicion is important, given the risk of bleeding, either from slight trauma or accidentally if lack of awareness leads to excision of the lesion owing to an incorrect diagnosis. Read More

A review of mucinous lesions of the breast.

Breast J 2020 Jun 18;26(6):1168-1178. Epub 2020 May 18.

Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine, Albany Medical College, Albany, NY, USA.

Mucinous lesions of the breast include a variety of benign and malignant epithelial processes that display intracytoplasmic or extracellular mucin, including mucocele-like lesions, mucinous carcinoma, solid papillary carcinoma, and other rare subtypes of mucin-producing carcinoma. The finding of free-floating or stromal mucin accumulations is a diagnostic challenge of which the significance depends on the clinical, radiologic, and pathologic context. This article emphasizes the differential diagnosis between benign and malignant mucin-producing lesions, with a brief consideration of potential mimics, such as biphasic and mesenchymal lesions with associated with mucinous, myxoid, or matrix material.

Diagnostic clues, pitfalls, and imaging characteristics of '-celes' that arise in abdominal and pelvic structures.

Abdom Radiol (NY) 2020 Apr 30. Epub 2020 Apr 30.

Department of Internal Medicine, Pratumthani Hospital, 7 Ladlumkaew Muang District, Pratumtani, 12000, Thailand.

'-Celes' is an ancient Greek language suffix that means 'tumor,' 'hernia,' 'swelling,' or 'cavity.' There are many '-celes' in the abdomen and pelvis that may be encountered during routine imaging interpretation, including santorinicele, choledochocele, ureterocele, lymphocele, mucocele, rectocele, cystocele, peritoneocele, varicocele, spermatocele, hydrocele, hematocele, pyocele and syringocele. Most '-celes' are detected incidentally at imaging for other clinical indications, but some deserve more attention due to a range of clinical symptoms or functional disorder that can adversely affect patient quality of life.

Department of Medical and Surgical Specialties, Radiological Sciences and Public Health Section of Audiology University of Brescia, and Pediatric Otolaryngology Head Neck Surgery Division Children Hospital "ASST Spedali Civili " Brescia Italy.

Mucocele is an accumulation of secretion products, desquamation, and inflammation within a body cavity: Localization in the mastoid is extremely rare. Erosion of bony walls and invasion of surrounding structures expose a patient to intra- and extracranial complications. Proper imaging work-up and complete removal through mastoidectomy is warranted.

Indications and Outcomes for Patients With Limited Symptoms Undergoing Endoscopic Sinus Surgery.

Am J Rhinol Allergy 2020 Jul 13;34(4):502-507. Epub 2020 Mar 13.

Division of Rhinology, Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Stanford University School of Medicine, Palo Alto, California.

Background: Previous research have suggested that chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) patients with lower symptomatic scores, demonstrated by a 22-item Sinonasal Outcome Test (SNOT-22) score <20, may not achieve meaningful quality of life improvement following endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS). However, indications for ESS are continuing to be defined and many low SNOT-22 scoring patients still undergo elective surgery for CRS and other benign sinonasal pathologies. The outcomes for these patients have not been previously studied. Read More

Eyeball deviation by orbital mucocele after midface sinus injury.

Arch Craniofac Surg 2020 Feb 20;21(1):53-57. Epub 2020 Feb 20.

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, St. Vincent's Hospital, College of Medicine, The Catholic University of Korea, Suwon, Korea.

A mucocele is an epithelium-lined, mucus-filled cavity in the paranasal sinuses. Mucocele may develop due to scarring and obstruction of the sinus ostium caused by midface sinus trauma, such as orbital bone fracture or endoscopic sinus surgery. The authors report two cases of orbital mucocele as complications following midface sinus injury (endoscopic sinus surgery in one case, and orbital fracture repair in the other). Read More

The Monobloc Distraction With Facial Bipartition: Outcomes of Simultaneous Multidimensional Facial Movement Compared With Monobloc Distraction or Facial Bipartition Alone.

Ann Plast Surg 2020 May;84(5S Suppl 4):S288-S294

Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Keck School of Medicine, University of Southern California.

Background: Although combined monobloc facial bipartition with distraction (MFBD) may simultaneously correct multiple facial dimensions in patients with syndromic craniosynostoses, complication risks limit its use. This study reassesses MFBD complications and outcomes to compare safety and efficacy to monobloc distraction (MD) and facial bipartition (FB) alone.

Methods: A retrospective review of MFBD, MD, and FB cases for 10 years at a tertiary children's hospital was performed. Read More
