Comparison of clinical characteristics and vestibular function test results in patients with vestibular migraine and Menière’s disease
Yuexia Wu, Xia Ling, Ning Song, Shuangmei Yan, Wenting Wang, Xu Yang, Ping Gu

  • Spontaneous internal vertigo was experienced by most VM patients.

  • Most VM patients have high SPV of caloric-induced nystagmus and CT intolerance.

  • Spontaneous external vertigo was experienced by most MD patients.

  • MD patients mostly have severe vestibular symptoms and autonomic responses.

  • Most MD patients show abnormal CT and normal vHIT, with the presence of saccades.

Transcutaneous injection of triamcinolone acetonide for persistent glottic granulation after laser microsurgery
Ying Zhang, Shisheng Li
Braz J Otorhinolaryngol. 2023;89:359-65

  • Persistent granulation could not disappear after conservative treatment.

  • Reoperation was not recommended.

  • Triamcinolone Acetonide (TA) injection in vocal fold is mature.

  • TA could accelerate the disappear of granulation or persistent granulation.

  • Suitable for huge granulation which blocks the glottis and the recur.

The development of nasal polyps involves early middle meatus mucous remodeling via TGF-β1 mediated PAI-1 reduction
Yijun Liu, Longlan Shu, Xiaocong Jiang, Yue Zhang, Qian Chen, Yang Shen, Yucheng Yang
Braz J Otorhinolaryngol. 2023;89:366-73

  • We have investigated the fibrosis genes in the TGF-β pathway in the early and mature nasal polyps development process, respectively.

  • PAI-1 is involved in early nasal polyps, and its low fibrolysis is predisposed to nasal polyps’ development.

  • PAI-1 is affected by the TGF pathway, and low PAI-1 expression is one of the main reasons for tissue remodeling in nasal polyps.

The effect of primary tumor volume on the prognosis of nasopharyngeal carcinoma in era of volumetric modulated arc therapy: a propensity score matched cohort study
Xiang Lin, Bingyi Wang, Fei Zheng, Zhaodong Fei, Chuanben Chen
Braz J Otorhinolaryngol. 2023;89:374-82

  • Propensity score matching was used to reduce bias in the study.

  • PTV was an important independent predictor on survival for NPC patients receiving VMAT.

  • PTV > 38 mL may be considered as an indicator of the clinical stage of nasopharyngeal carcinoma.
