Parotidectomy and neck dissection in locally advanced and relapsed cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck region
Giulianno Molina de Melo, Luiz Henrique Guilherme, Marcel das Neves Palumbo, Marcello Rosano, Murilo Catafesta das Neves, Fabiano Mesquita Callegari, Marcio Abrahao, Onivaldo Cervantes
10.1016/j.bjorl.2021.11.007
Highlights

  • Parotidectomy and neck dissection in locally advanced (laCSCC) and relapsed Cutaneous Squamous Cell Carcinoma (reCSCC) were evaluated.

  • Worst survivals were observed in T4, positive P stage and positive parotid metastasis.

  • The parotid metastasis was present in 50% with OR = 37.6 to evolve into positive neck metastasis.

  • The occult, neck metastasis and neck extracapsular spread rate was 13.5%, 51.3% and 37.8%.

  • We propose partial for P0 or total parotidectomy for P1-3 and neck dissection to all these patients.

Early postoperative endoscopic score can predict the long-term endoscopic outcomes in eosinophilic chronic rhinosinusitis (ECRS) patients
Kosuke Akiyama, Yasushi Samukawa, Hiroshi Hoshikawa
10.1016/j.bjorl.2021.12.003
Highlights

  • Eosinophilic chronic rhinosinusitis is a poor prognosis and refractory disease.

  • We assessed the long-term endoscopic outcomes after surgery and following treatment.

  • Early postoperative endoscopic findings are a predictive factor for the later outcomes.

  • Higher endoscopic score of 3 months post operation indicates poor long-term prognosis.

Is there a relationship between tonsil volume and the success of pharyngeal surgery among adult patients with obstructive sleep apnea?
Silvia Matarredona-Quiles, Marina Carrasco-Llatas, Paula Martínez-Ruíz de Apodaca, Noelia Ortega-Beltrá, José Dalmau-Galofre
10.1016/j.bjorl.2021.12.002
Highlights

  • A positive correlation exists between tonsil grade and volume.

  • Tonsil volume and surgical success were correlated.

  • The volume of the tonsils of those patients whose surgery was deemed a success was greater (9.2 cm3 vs. 5.5 cm3).

  • A tonsil volume greater than 6.5 cm3 was linked to success during pharyngeal surgery.

10.1016/j.bjorl.2021.12.001
Highlights

  • Questionnaires can be useful tools for obtaining information on auditory behavior.

  • APDQ demonstrates separating the three clinical groups studied.

  • The translated version of the questionnaire showed good reliability parameters.

The reliability and validity of decreased sound tolerance scale-screening
Serpil Allusoglu, Songul Aksoy
10.1016/j.bjorl.2021.11.009
Highlights

  • Decreased Sound Tolerance Scale-Screening is easy to apply and takes a short time.

  • This scale distinguishes hyperacusis, phonophobia, misophonia.

  • This scale guides clinician to which discipline the patient should be referred.

Comparing CPAP masks during initial titration for Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome: one-year experience
Adriane Iurck Zonato, Cíntia Felicio Adriano Rosa, Luciana Oliveira, Lia Bittencourt
10.1016/j.bjorl.2021.10.007
Highlights

  • Little attention has been paid to the effect of different mask styles on the effectiveness of PAP titration.

  • Recent advancements in mask designs provide better mask fit and more choices for patients, which may provide more positive CPAP experiences.

  • There is a concept that the oronasal mask increases upper airway resistance compared to the nasal masks.

  • The use of nasal or nasal pillow masks should be encouraged by sleep laboratories as the first choice on the CPAP titration night.

Correlation between PET-CT and ct in the staging after the treatment of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma
Fernando García-Curdi, Yolanda Lois-Ortega, Ana Muniesa-del Campo, Amaranta McGee-Laso, José Miguel Sebastián-Cortés, Héctor Vallés-Varela, Julio José Lambea-Sorrosal
10.1016/j.bjorl.2021.11.008
Highlights

  • Head and neck cancer recurs more frequently in the first 2–3 years after treatment.

  • Early detection of recurrence events is important.

  • Diagnostic imaging methods are an indispensable tool in the follow up of the disease.

  • The post-treatment neck study is controversial.

10.1016/j.bjorl.2021.11.001
Highlights

  • Cells in a 3D dimensional environment are more similar to in vivo than a monolayer.

  • In 3D environment the cells remained differentiated for a longer time.

  • Nasal polyp spheroids can be used to understand CRSwNP.

Phoniatric evaluation: relationships between a set of tests and academic difficulties
Carolina Christofani Sian Kencis, Beatriz Cavalcanti de A.C. Novaes
10.1016/j.bjorl.2021.10.004
Highlights

  • Relationship between tests used in the phoniatric assessment and the complaint of academic difficulties.

  • Reading, text comprehension and dictation assessment: statistically significant correlation.

  • Allows prioritizing evidence that may be more related to the complaint.

  • It does not replace a complete phoniatric assessment.
