Jaw pain and myocardial ischemia: A review of potential neuroanatomical pathways.

Clin Anat 2019 Mar 7. Epub 2019 Mar 7.

Seattle Science Foundation, Seattle, WA, USA.

Cardiac pain is usually manifested as a crushing, squeezing, or sensation of pressure in the center of the chest. The pain can be referred to the left shoulder, neck, jaw, and epigastric region as well as the temporomandibular region, paranasal sinuses, and head in general. Although not well understood, during myocardial ischemia, the process of cardiac referred pain to craniofacial structures can be explained by the convergence of visceral and somatic relays at the trigeminal nucleus in the brain stem.

Aspergillosis in immunocompromised patients with haematological malignancies.

J BUON 2018 Dec;23(7):7-10

ENT Department, Medical School, University of Thessaly, Larissa, Greece.

Aspergillosis, which is saprophytic in nature, is known to cause massive destruction of paranasal sinuses in immunocompromised hosts, but in immunocompetent individuals invasive aspergillosis is rare. Diagnosis is posed from history, physical examination including anterior and posterior rhinoscopy, endoscopy of the nose and paranasal sinuses, radiological findings (CT and/or MRI), fungus cultures and histopathological examination. Non-specific presenting symptoms provide time for infection to extent from sinuses to vital surroundings such as bony, vascular and central nervous system structures, thereby increasing morbidity and mortality.

Development of CT-based methods for longitudinal analyses of paranasal sinus osteitis in granulomatosis with polyangiitis.

BMC Med Imaging 2019 02 4;19(1):13. Epub 2019 Feb 4.

Division of Radiology and Nuclear Medicine, Oslo University Hospital, PB 4950 Nydalen, Oslo, 0424, Norway.

Background: Even though progressive rhinosinusitis with osteitis is a major clinical problem in granulomatosis with polyangiitis (GPA), there are no studies on how GPA-related osteitis develops over time, and no quantitative methods for longitudinal assessment. Here, we aimed to identify simple and robust CT-based methods for capture and quantification of time-dependent changes in GPA-related paranasal sinus osteitis and compare performance of the methods under study in a largely unselected GPA cohort.

Methods: GPA patients (n = 121) with ≥3 paranasal CT scans obtained ≥12 months apart and control patients not having GPA or rhinosinusitis (n = 15) were analysed by: (i) Global osteitis scoring scale (GOSS), originally developed for chronic rhinosinusitis; (ii) Paranasal sinus volume by manual segmentation; (iii) Mean maxillary and sphenoid diameter normalised to landmark distances (i.

Idiopathic Orbital Inflammation with Bone Destruction and Extension into the Paranasal Sinuses.

Surv Ophthalmol 2019 Jan 29. Epub 2019 Jan 29.

Duke University Medical Center, Department of Ophthalmology, Durham, NC 27710.

Idiopathic orbital inflammation developed in the right orbit of a woman in her mid-thirties, causing tearing, photophobia, diplopia, altered depth perception, proptosis, and pain on eye movements. Computed tomography disclosed a mass involving the intraconal and extraconal nasal right orbit, extending to the orbital apex with anterior displacement of the globe, effacement of the medial rectus muscle, portions of the fat plane, and the superior oblique muscle, and bone destruction with extension of the mass through the orbital floor into the superior maxillary sinus and through the lamina papyracea into the ethmoid sinus. Orbital biopsy disclosed dense fibrous connective tissue with numerous lymphocytes and macrophages. Read More

Secretory IgA-mediated immune response in saliva and early detection of Pseudomonas aeruginosa in the lower airways of pediatric cystic fibrosis patients.

Med Microbiol Immunol 2019 Jan 31. Epub 2019 Jan 31.

Department of Clinical Pathology, School of Medical Sciences, University of Campinas, Rua Vital Brasil 251, 2nd floor, Cidade Universitária, Barão Geraldo, Campinas, SP, 13083-888, Brazil.

Pseudomonas aeruginosa (Pa) detection in the paranasal sinuses may help to prevent or postpone bacterial aspiration to the lower airways (LAW) and chronic lung infection in cystic fibrosis (CF). We assessed the ability of an ELISA test for measurement of specific Pa secretory IgA (sIgA) in saliva (a potential marker of sinus colonization) to early detect changes in the Pa LAW status (indicated by microbiological sputum or cough swab culture and specific serum IgG levels) of 65 patients for three years, in different investigation scenarios. Increased sIgA levels were detected in saliva up to 22 months before changes in culture/serology. Read More

Microbiological Aspects of Acute and Chronic Pediatric Rhinosinusitis.

J Clin Med 2019 Jan 28;8(2). Epub 2019 Jan 28.

Fondazione IRCCS Ca' Granda Ospedale Maggiore Policlinico, 20100 Milan, Italy.

The microbiology of acute and chronic rhinosinusitis has been extensively studied, but there are still some differences of view concerning the etiology of the former, and many disagreements regarding the microbiology of the latter. Establishing the concomitant distribution of the causative micro-organisms in cases that involve multiple sinuses is scientifically and practically important. The main problems are the variety of aerobes and anaerobes that may be involved, and the fact that different tracts of the sinuses of the same patient may be simultaneously affected. Read More

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.

Bone wax migrates to the orbit in a patient with a frontal sinus abnormality: a case report.

BMC Ophthalmol 2019 Jan 24;19(1):29. Epub 2019 Jan 24.

Department of Ophthalmology, the 2nd Xiangya Hospital, Central South University, Changsha, 410011, Hunan Province, China.

Background: Bone wax is the most widely used hemostatic bone sealant because of its availability, ease of use, immediate action, and minimal adverse effects. Several complications have been reported to be associated with the use of bone wax, such as infection, osteohypertrophy, pain, granuloma formation, allergic reaction, and thrombosis. Here, we present a rare complication, namely, bone wax migration, which developed after a craniotomy on a patient who had a frontal sinus abnormality. Read More
