IMPORTANCE: Mobile apps in the field of ORL-HNS, are widely used by patients and physicians, but neither necessarily developed in collaboration with healthcare professionals nor subjected to regulations by the United States Food and Drug Administration guidelines, with a resultant potential of risk for its users. OBJECTIVE: To provide the ORL-HNS physician with an updated list of scientific peer review literature- validated mobile apps for safe use for both the clinician and the patients, for screening, diagnosis, therapy and follow up for various ORL-HNS pathologies...

(1) Delays in initial treatment have been a frequently used metric for assessing disparities in medicine; however, there has been sparse literature on treatment delays in thyroid cancer. We therefore aimed to assess disparities by investigating the association between race/ethnicity, insurance type, and socioeconomic status and time to surgical treatment of thyroid cancer. (2) A retrospective chart review was conducted to collect demographic and clinical data from 443 surgical thyroid cancer patients at Mount Sinai Hospital in 2018-2019...

BACKGROUND: Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC) is an aggressive and rare neuroendocrine tumor, accounting for less than 1% of skin cancers. Metastasis primarily manifests in the cervical lymph nodes but rarely affect the thyroid. METHODS: We report a case of primary head and neck cutaneous MCC with metastasis to the thyroid gland. A review of the literature of MCC with thyroid metastasis was conducted. RESULTS: We identified five cases of MCC with thyroid metastasis...

OBJECTIVES: Patients with Bell's palsy, the sudden onset of facial paralysis, have variable recovery. Frailty has been recognized as an important factor in predicting recovery. This study investigated the relationship between frailty and facial nerve recovery in Bell's palsy patients. METHODS: A retrospective review was conducted on 95 Bell's palsy patients at a single institution's Department of Otolaryngology from 2014 to 2023. A clinically relevant facial nerve recovery was defined as a House-Brackmann (HB) score decrease>1 between the initial and most recent visit...

PURPOSE: Recent studies have suggested that children with an isolated cleft lip (CL) are more likely to develop middle ear disease and eustachian tube dysfunction (ETD) compared to the general population. This may be related to abnormal palatal musculature or an undiagnosed submucosal cleft palate (SMCP). We aim to determine the prevalence of SMCP in patients with CL who exhibit ETD. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective chart review was performed for children with an isolated CL requiring tympanostomy tubes over a 20-year period at an academic tertiary care medical center...

PURPOSE: In early glottic squamous cell carcinoma, similar results have been described in terms of disease control between transoral laser microsurgery (TLM) and radiation therapy (RT). During the past two decades, several studies compared subjective vocal outcomes of exclusive RT with those of TLM, showing a trend towards improving results for TLM over time. However, the objective differences in terms of spectro-acoustic voice parameters between exclusive RT and TLM have been less frequently investigated...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Olfactory dysfunction (OD) has been recognized as an early biomarker for neurodegenerative diseases. Identifying behaviors that increase the risk of OD is crucial for early recognition of neurogenerative diseases. Alcohol consumption can potentially impact olfaction through its neurotoxic effects. This study aims to examine the relationship between alcohol consumption and OD, using data from the National Social Life, Health, and Aging Project (NSHAP). METHODS: This cross-sectional study was conducted on data for 2757 adults from Round 1 of NSHAP...

BACKGROUND: Biologic agents are considered a new revolutionized therapy for severe and recurrent forms of CRSwNP which disease burden is not sufficiently controlled by conservative and/or surgical treatments. Recent Research has focused on evaluating their real-life efficacy in CRSwNP, as only limited reports on real-life data are available. However, in most studies, the response to treatment is evaluated in terms of improvement in Nasal Polyp Score (NPS) or in Sino-Nasal Outcome test (SNOT-22) scores...
