Impact of radiotherapy for nasopharyngeal carcinoma on carotid stenosis risk: a meta-analysis
Huiqing Liang, Yuanyong Zhou, Wei Xiong, Suimin Zheng

  • Radiotherapy (RT) serves as the most effective treatment for Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma (NPC) and can cause carotid stenosis.

  • This meta-analysis of 16 studies assessed the impact of RT on carotid stenosis in NPC patients, as well as to explore the risk factors for significant carotid stenosis.

  • Results showed that RT increased the risk of carotid stenosis in patients with NPC. Age, smoking habit and time interval from radiotherapy were independent predictors of significant carotid stenosis.

Influence of handgrip strength on pharyngeal transit time in individuals with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
Nathalia de Morais Rockenbach, Adriane Schmidt Pasqualoto, Angela Ruviaro Busanello-Stella

  • Study with 15 individuals of both sexes, with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), and mean age of 65.7 years.

  • Most of the subjects in this study had severe COPD, reduced HGS, balanced BMI, normal swallowing, and longer PTT.

  • A significant, albeit weak, correlation was obtained between PTT and ND-HGS.

  • The HGS variables and HGS asymmetry were not enough to be considered a risk for abnormal swallowing.

Sphenochoanal polyps in children — a systematic review (1995‒2021)
Krystian Tywoniuk, Karolina Haber, Józef Mierzwiński

  • Nasal polyps that originate from the sphenoid sinus and reach the nasopharynx are called sphenochoanal polyps.

  • Only 11 cases of sphenochoanal polyps in children have been described in the world English-language literature.

  • The symptoms of sphenochoanal polyps are nonspecific. The misdiagnosis can result in recurrences in patients with sphenochoanal polyp.

  • Sphenochoanal polyps should be kept in mind in the differential diagnosis of unilateral nasal cavity or paranasal sinuses masses.

The potential applicability of facial nerve monitoring as a navigation tool in parotid gland surgery
Goksel Turhal, Sevinc Hepkarsi, Kerem Ozturk

  • The facial nerve may not be routinely dissected in minimally invasive parotid surgery.

  • Facial nerve stimulator might be used as a navigation tool to estimate the distance to the nerve.

  • The distance to the nerve can be predicted by increasing the stimulus intensity.

  • The facial nerve is stimulated from an average of 2.20 ± 0.76 mm (range 1–3 mm) when the stimulus intensity is 1 mA.

  • Distance to the major branches of the facial nerve can also be predicted with the stimulator.

  • All children acquired basic auditory perception skills.

  • Evolution of word identification up to sentence recognition level.

  • Alternative to children born with cochlear malformation or auditory nerve deficiency.

Analysis of clinical parameters as predictors of hearing recovery in patients with sudden sensorineural hearing loss
Nikola Kolja Poljak, Marisa Klančnik, Petar Ivanišević, Petra Mikulić, Marta Zrinka Vucemilovic

  • Sudden sensorineural hearing loss is defined as a sensoneural hearing loss of at least 30 decibels, which affects at least three consecutive frequencies within 72hours.

  • The etiology of SSNHL is fairly unknown, and so, it is often referred to as an idiopathic disease.

  • Sudden sensorineural hearing loss requires immediate treatment.

  • Tonal audiometry results, diabetes mellitus and onset of therapy were shown to be a statistically significant negative predictive factors for recovery.

Cone beam computed tomographic evaluation of infraorbital canal protrusion into the maxillary sinus and its importance for endoscopic surgery
Gozde Serindere, Mehmet Serindere

  • Accurate diagnosis of ICP is very important in preventing infraorbital nerve damage in endoscopic sinus surgery.

  • Ignoring the ICP may cause undesirable results during endoscopic sinus surgery.

  • Therefore, in all conditions, maximum attention should be paid to anatomical variations in surgical procedures.
