Simultaneous Bilateral Same-Day Endoscopic Myringoplasty Using Tragal Cartilage From One Ear. Ear Nose Throat J. 2019 May 28;:145561319854065 Authors: Deniz B, Ihsan K, Ismail G, Oguzhan KR, Muge O Abstract The aim of this study is to investigate the outcomes of bilateral same-day endoscopic myringoplasty using tragal cartilage from one ear in patients with bilateral chronic otitis media. In this retrospective study, medical records of 62 (84 ears) patients aged between 18 and 65 years who underwent endoscopic myringoplasty at our center between January 2015 and December 2017 were evaluated. Patients were classified into 2 groups according to surgical procedure they received: unilateral myringoplasty (group 1) and bilateral same-day myringoplasty (group 2). The comparisons were made between groups in terms of anatomical graft success and functional outcomes. There were 40 patients in the unilateral group (group 1) and 22 patients in the bilateral same-day group (group 2). The graft success rates were 92.5% and 93.2% for groups 1 and 2, respectively ( P = .904). The mean preoperative air-bone gaps (ABGs) were 21.1 ± 7.1 and 20.5 ± 6.7 dB, respectively, whereas the mean postoperative ABGs were 8.1 ± 2.7 dB and 7.9 ± 3.0 dB, respectively. The difference between pre- and postoperative ABGs for the entire group was statistically significant ( P

Conclusions: Children with OM-associated BM were prone to many problems, such as being especially ill at presentation, undergoing a difficult clinical course and showing a higher risk of complicated or fatal outcome. HIV infection and malnutrition were common in children with otorrhea, which was also associated with low socioeconomic status.

Abstract(1) To study the prevalence of sensorineural hearing loss among chronic renal failure patients. (2) To study the correlation between degree of hearing loss and the duration of chronic renal failure. This cross sectional study was conducted in the department of Otorhinolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery at KAHER ’s Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College and KLEs Dr. Prabhakar Kore Hospital and Medical Research Centre, Belagavi from January 2018 to December 2018. 60 ears (30 patients) with chronic renal failure were included in the study. All 60 ears were subjected to ENT examination, pure tone audiometry and me a...

Abstract Epithelial abnormalities underpin the development of the middle ear disease, otitis media (OM). Until now, a well-characterized in vitro model of the middle ear (ME) epithelium that replicates the complex cellular composition of the middle ear has not been available. This chapter describes the development of a novel in vitro model of mouse middle ear epithelial cells (mMECs), cultured at the air-liquid interface (ALI). This system enables recapitulation of the characteristics of the native murine ME epithelium. We demonstrate that mMECs undergo differentiation into the varied cell populations seen within ...

A large cross-sectional study of UK prescribing data found that the duration of antibiotic prescriptions for common infections in primary care frequently exceeded national guideline recommendations. The most common reason for antibiotic prescribing was for respiratory infections, and more than 80% of prescriptions for acute cough and bronchitis, acute sore throat, acute otitis media and acute exacerbations of COPD were for longer than recommended. Substantial reductions in antibiotic exposure can be achieved by prescribing antibiotics in line with NICE and Public Health England guidance on managing common infections.

Abstract SUMMARYThe microbiota of the upper respiratory tract (URT) protects the host from bacterial pathogenic colonization by competing for adherence to epithelial cells and by immune response regulation that includes the activation of antimicrobial and (anti-)inflammatory components. However, environmental or host factors can modify the microbiota to an unstable community that predisposes the host to infection or inflammation. One of the URT diseases most often encountered in children is otitis media (OM). The role of pathogenic bacteria like Streptococcus pneumoniae, Haemophilus influenzae, and Moraxella catar...

Authors: Principi N, Esposito S Abstract Introduction: Acute otitis media (AOM) is a common disease, particularly in infants and young children. Almost all children experience at least one episode of AOM in the first 3 years of age, and approximately 50% experience recurrent episodes in the same period of time. Areas covered: Some new potentially effective preventive or therapeutic approaches to AOM have been identified and are not discussed even in the most updated guidelines. The main aim of this narrative review is to detail what has been recently suggested. Expert opinion: Several new measures have been suggest...
