PURPOSE: The treatment strategy of parotid gland tumours depends mainly on the histopathological type of the lesion. Fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) is recommended in preoperative diagnostics. The aim of the study was to evaluate the FNAB standing in the diagnostic algorithm of parotid gland lesions and to correlate FNAB results in relation to the definitive histopathological diagnosis. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The retrospective analyses of 651 examined and consequently surgically treated parotid gland lesions at the Department of Otorhinolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery, 1st Faculty of Medicine, Charles University in Prague between 2006 and 2016 were used...

In recent years, minimally invasive surgeries have been undergoing a revolution with the development of robotic assisted surgery. Due to the anatomical region in which many operations are carried out, in small spaces through natural orifices in the body such as the mouth, the nose or the ear, as well as the esthetic discomfort caused by external scars in the head and neck, the use of robotic assisted surgery in the field of head and neck surgery is gaining momentum and is being implemented more and more in Israel and around the globe...

The current document is based on a consensus reached by a panel of experts from the Chinese Society of Allergy and the Chinese Society of Otorhinolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Rhinology Group. Chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) affects approximately 8% of Chinese adults. The inflammatory and remodeling mechanisms of CRS in the Chinese population differ from those observed in the populations of European descent. Recently, precision medicine has been used to treat inflammation by targeting key biomarkers that are involved in the process...

INTRODUCTION: Mucous membrane pemphigoid (MMP) refers to a heterogeneous group of rare, chronic, inflammatory, mucous membrane-dominated, sub-epithelial blistering diseases that manifest with a varying constellation of oral, ocular, cutaneous, genital, nasopharyngeal, esophageal, and laryngeal lesions. MMP can progress to scarring in affected areas, which may lead to devastating complications including ocular involvement leading to blindness as well as laryngeal involvement leading to airway obstruction...

We determined the employment status of recently graduated otorhinolaryngologist-head and neck surgeons (ENT doctors) in Finland during the past 10 years. We also investigated the job vacancy rate of the Departments of Otorhinolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery (Department of ORL-HNS). An electronic questionnaire was sent to all ENT doctors who had graduated during 2007-2017 and to chief physicians of all Departments of ORL-HNS. Chi-square and Fisher's test were used in the analyses. Altogether 129 ENT doctors had graduated and 125 (96...

INTRODUCTION: Posttransplant lymphoproliferative disorder (PTLD) is a serious disease that usually occurs after solid organ transplant and stem cell transplant. Posttransplant lymphoproliferative disorder often involves the head and neck, but it is rare to present as a nasal deformity. Here, we describe a case of external nasal enlargement resulting from PTLD. CASE REPORT: A 40-year-old man presented with an enlarged external nose half a year ago. The nasal ala thickened, and the external nose was gradually enlarged, accompanied by bilateral nasal obstructions...

The Vibrant Soundbridge represents a new approach to hearing improvement in the form of active implantable middle ear hearing device. Unlike conventional acoustic hearing aids, which increase the volume of sound that goes to the eardrum, the Vibrant Soundbridge bypasses the ear canal and eardrum by directly vibrating the small bones in the middle ear. Because of its design, no portion of the device is placed in the ear canal itself. The Vibrant Soundbridge has been approved by the FDA as a safe and effective treatment option for adults with moderate to severe sensorineural, conductive or mixed hearing losses who desire an alternative to the acoustic hearing aids, for better hearing...

BACKGROUND: Surgical scars are a significant cosmetic problem, especially when in exposed areas such as the anterior neck. To avoid or reduce visible scarring, diverse innovative surgical approaches to the neck have been introduced. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the feasibility and safety of the endoscopic resection using the retroauricular approach for submandibular gland excision. METHODS: The present study enrolled 48 patients who underwent conventional transcervical submandibular gland excision and 23 patients who underwent endoscope-assisted retroauricular approach submandibular gland excision, from February 2014 through February 2018 at the Department of Head and Neck Surgery and Otorhinolaryngology of the AC Camargo Cancer Center, in Sao Paulo, Brazil...
