OBJECTIVES: To investigate the clinical efficacy of dental treatment and endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS), each primary/combined treatment modality, in patients with odontogenic sinusitis (ODS), according to its phase, acute or chronic. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed clinical data on 172 patients diagnosed with ODS. They were divided into two groups: acute (≤ 3 months; 90 patients) and chronic (> 3 months; 82 patients) ODS. The success rate and time to resolution of each primary/combined treatment modality were compared between the two groups...

OBJECTIVE: The involvement of the inner ear in otosclerosis may lead to the development of cochlear otosclerosis. The aim of this study was to analyse changes in the chemical composition and microstructure of the stapes in the course of otosclerosis compared to healthy stapes. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This analysis included 31 patients with otosclerosis and 9 patients without otosclerosis. Microanalytical and diffraction techniques were used to assess the elemental distribution and orientation topography of the stapes...

OBJECTIVE: To translate and validate an Italian version of the Questionnaire of Olfactory Disorders (IT-QOD). MATERIALS AND METHODS: This is a prospective, multicentre study that involved patients with olfactory dysfunction (OD). Both cases and controls underwent administration of the IT-QOD, Sino-Nasal Outcome Test-22 (SNOT-22) and psychophysical evaluation of orthonasal and retronasal olfactory function.

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to compare the efficacy of voice therapy combined with standard anti-reflux therapy in reducing symptoms and signs of laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR). METHODS: A randomised clinical trial was conducted. Fifty-two patients with LPR diagnosed by 24 h multichannel intraluminal impedance-pH monitoring were randomly allocated in two groups: medical treatment (MT) and medical plus voice therapy (VT). Clinical symptoms and laryngeal signs were assessed at baseline and after 3 months of treatment with the Reflux Symptom Index (RSI), Reflux Finding Score (RFS), Voice Handicap Index (VHI) and GRBAS scales...

OBJECTIVE: Partial or total sternotomy is required for 10% of retrosternal goiter. This study reviewed our experience with an extended cervicotomic approach as an alternative surgical solution for retrosternal goiter. METHODS: A retrospective study was performed on patients who underwent partial or total thyroidectomy for retrosternal goiter between 2014 and 2019 at a tertiary medical centre. Data on clinical, radiologic, and pathologic factors were analysed. Peri- and postoperative outcomes were compared between extended and standard cervical approaches to predict the need for an extended cervical approach...

OBJECTIVE: Squamous cell carcinoma of the nasal vestibule (NV SCC) is a head and neck malignancy for which there is no established consensus on most aspects of clinical management. The purpose of this document is to give updated recommendations that incorporate recent evidence on its clinical characteristics and the high efficacy of brachytherapy as primary treatment modality. METHODS: A working group consisting of the members of the Scientific Committee for Oncology and Reconstructive Surgery of the Italian Society of Otorhinolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery and radiation oncologists expert in brachytherapy was formed to achieve a consensus...

OBJECTIVE: Implantable hearing devices represent a modern and innovative solution for hearing restoration. Over the years, these high-tech devices have increasingly evolved but their use in clinical practice is not universally agreed in the scientific literature. Congresses, meetings, conferences, and consensus statements to achieve international agreement have been made. This work follows this line and aims to answer unsolved questions regarding examinations, selection criteria and surgery for implantable hearing devices...

OBJECTIVE: This study aims to determine the prevalence and types of Onodi cells through computed tomography and investigate the relationship between Onodi cell and the surrounding structures, paying particular attention to the risky proximity to the optic nerve canal. METHODS: In this study, 430 computed tomography scans of paranasal sinuses were analysed to establish the prevalence and different types of Onodi cells. Furthermore, the relationship between Onodi cell and different patterns of sphenoid sinus pneumatisation and surrounding structures were investigated...

OBJECTIVE: Detection of laryngeal cartilage invasion is of great importance in staging of laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma (LSCC). The role of prognosticators in locally advanced laryngeal cancer are still widely debated. This study aimed to assess the impact of volume of thyroid cartilage infiltration, as well as other histopathologic variables, on patient survival. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively analysed 74 patients affected by pT4 LSCC and treated with total laryngectomy between 2005 and 2021 at the Department of Otorhinolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery of the University of Brescia, Italy...

OBJECTIVES: The Sino-Nasal Outcome Test 22 (SNOT-22) is a validated patient-reported outcome instrument to evaluate the health-related quality of life (HRQoL) in patients with chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS). There are no published normative SNOT-22 scores, limiting its interpretation. METHODS: Symptom scores from 1,000 SNOT-22 questionnaires were analysed by principal component analysis (PCA) and exploratory factor analyses (EFA). Data were derived from a survey with 1,000 healthy Europeans (reference cohort) who were recruited using the Respondi panel for market and social science research...
