BACKGROUND: To understand rates, risk factors, and costs associated with hospital readmission in pediatric patients who underwent neck mass excision. METHODS: This was a retrospective review of the Nationwide Readmissions Database (NRD) between 2010 and 2014 of select neck mass procedures, defined as affecting the following: thyroid, salivary gland, cervical lymph nodes, branchial cleft, thymus, and head and neck vessels. We analyzed rates and causes of 30-day readmissions using univariate and multivariate logistic regression...

PURPOSE: Branchial cleft anomalies (BCAs) are developmental malformations of the head and neck region. Their histogenesis has been the subject of controversy and is not fully understood. This study aimed to test all present developmental theories ("branchial apparatus," "precervical sinus," "thymopharyngeal," and "inclusion" theories) on a sample of 48 BCAs from a single institution. METHODS: We performed a retrospective analysis of clinical-epidemiological and anatomical-pathological characteristics of BCAs treated over a 12-year period in our hospital...

Our aim is to analyze effect of covid-19 pandemic in management of pediatric emergencies in E.N.T. and to provide recommendations for management of pediatric emergencies in E.N.T. during pandemic. In this retrospective study we included emergency pediatric cases required early intervention during covid-19 pandemic. Pre operative radiological investigation x-ray was done in all aero digestive foreign body patients. Pre operative HRCT neck and chest with virtual bronchoscopy in foreign body inhalation & compromised airway patients was done only in cases where patient's clinical condition was stable...

Isolated frontal sinus disease is a rare and highly morbid condition. Although chronic frontal sinusitis has been described in literature, clinically it is quite uncommon in the absence of paranasal sinusitis and rhinitis. Here we examine a case of isolated chronic frontal sinusitis presenting with anosmia-a curious clinical manifestation.

OBJECTIVES: Clinical trials have reported increases in the survival of pediatric rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) from 25% in 1970 to 73% in 2001. The purpose of this study was to examine whether survival of pediatric patients with RMS of the head and neck improved at the US population level. METHODS: A population-based cohort of patients with rhabdomyosarcoma of the head and neck aged 0-19 years in the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) registry from 1973 to 2013 was queried...

Extraskeletal osteosarcoma is a very rare type of sarcoma that is considered as one of the subtypes of osteosarcoma. This sarcoma type is very rare in the head and neck area. There is no reported case in the parapharyngeal area. Our case is the first in the literature since it is located in the parapharyngeal area. We present the 69- year-old male patient with extra-skeletal osteosarcoma arising from the parapharyngeal area, with current literature.

INTRODUCTION: Sentinel lymph node biopsy is a proven method for staging the neck in patients with early oral cavity squamous cell carcinoma because it results in less comorbidity than the traditional method of selective neck dissection, with the same oncological results. However, the real effect of that method on the quality of life of such patients remains unknown. OBJECTIVE: The present study aimed to evaluate the quality of life of patients with oral cavity squamous cell carcinoma T1/T2N0 submitted to sentinel lymph node biopsy compared to those that received selective neck dissection...

INTRODUCTION: In audiology, the usual tests of speech perception in silence are non-predictive of intelligibility in noise. The French Matrix was developed to assess intelligibility in noise in adults with normal cognitive capacity. A simplified adaptive version, FRA-SIMAT, was derived for use with children and elderly persons with diminished memory span. The aim of the present study was to apply this adaptive procedure to determine signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) according to percentage intelligibility...

INTRODUCTION: Revision framework surgeries might be required for unilateral vocal fold paralyses. However, outcomes and indications of revision surgeries have not been adequately documented. For a better understanding of indications for the procedure and to help in achieving better vocal outcomes, we performed a retrospective chart review of patients who underwent revision framework surgeries for unilateral vocal fold paralysis. OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to present clinical features of patients who underwent revision framework surgeries for the treatment of unilateral vocal fold paralysis...

INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: Congenital atresia of the external auditory canal (EAC) is a congenital defect present in one in every 10,000-20,000 births. It causes conductive hearing loss, with an air-bone gap of 50-60dB. Early amplification is essential in bilateral cases to ensure normal language development. The aim of this study is to present the osseointegrated hearing implant as a treatment for bilateral EAC atresia, reviewing the audiometric results and the rate of complications...

BACKGROUND: To access the influence of insurance status on time of diagnosis, quality of treatment and survival in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). METHODS: This mono-institutional retrospective cohort analysis included all HNSCC patients (n = 1,054) treated between 2001 and 2011, and subdivided the cohort according to the insurance status. Differences between the groups were analyzed using the Chi square and the unpaired student's t-test. Survival rates were calculated by Kaplan-Meier and Cox regression for forward selection...

Tumoral lesions in the head and neck region represent a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge in otorhinolaryngologic routine. High-resolution ultrasound is usually able to guide diagnosis. Nevertheless, a definite differentiation between benign and malignant lesions can only be achieved by tissue biopsy. The various options for obtaining samples for histopathological or cytological examination-from minimally invasive ultrasound-guided fine-needle biopsy to punch biopsy and open surgical biopsy-will be discussed in the first part along with the associated advantages and disadvantages...

Importance: Recent studies have suggested that olfactory dysfunction and gustatory dysfunction are associated with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). However, olfaction has been evaluated solely on reported symptoms, after COVID-19 diagnosis, and in both mild and severe COVID-19 cases, but rarely has it been assessed in prospectively unselected populations. Objective: To evaluate the diagnostic value of a semiobjective olfactory test developed to assess patient-reported chemosensory dysfunction prior to testing for the presence of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) in patients attending a COVID-19 screening facility...

Importance: Cochlear implantation is highly effective at improving hearing outcomes, but results have been limited to groupwise analysis. That is, limited data are available for individual patients that report comparisons of preoperative aided speech recognition and postimplantation speech recognition. Objective: To assess changes in preoperative aided vs postoperative speech recognition scores for individual patients receiving cochlear implants when considering the measurement error for each speech recognition test...

Background: Data on otorhinolaryngology and head and neck diseases in patient with chronic renal disease are rare in developing African countries. This study was aimed to determine the epidemiology and management of otorhinolaryngology and head and neck diseases among chronic renal disease patient seen in our tertiary health-care facility. Materials and Methods: This was a prospective, hospital-based study that was conducted in the ear, nose, and throat department in a Nigerian University Teaching Hospital...
