CONCLUSIONS: There was a great diversity of oral, craniofacial and systemic characteristic among the KS patients, suggesting that an inter-disciplinary approach should be taken for their dental treatment. PMID: 31433389 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

On the first day of my clinical rotation in Pediatrics as a third-year medical student, I was handed the Harriet Lane Handbook and told, with some ferocity, that “children are not just little adults.” Similarly, otolaryngologic problems in children are not just smaller versions of those problems in adults. Although otolaryngologists have always cared for children, and the fundamental nature of their specialty is conducive to treating diseases in children (otitis media, upper respiratory infections, and so forth), Dr Sylvan Stool pointed out the necessity of developing the discipline of pediatric otolaryngology ...

This study investigated vocabulary growth from 18 to 24 months of age in young children with repaired cleft palate (CP), children with otitis media, and typically developing (TD) children. In addition, the contributions of factors such as hearing level, middle ear status, size of consonant inventory, maternal education level, and gender to the development of expressive vocabulary were explored. Method Vocabulary size of 40 children with repaired CP, 29 children with otitis media, and 25 TD children was measured using the parent report on MacArthur-Bates Communicative Development Inventories: Words and Sentences (Fenson et ...

Authors: Pamuk G, Pamuk AE, Akgöz A, Öztürk E, Bajin MD, Sennaroğlu L Abstract OBJECTIVE: To determine cochlear duct mid-scalar length in normal cochleae and its role in selecting the correct peri-modiolar and mid-scalar implant length. METHODS: The study included 40 patients with chronic otitis media who underwent high-resolution computed tomography of the temporal bone. The length and height of the basal turn, mid-modiolar height of the cochlea, mid-scalar and lateral wall length of the cochlear duct, and the 'X' line (the largest distance from mid-point of the round window to the mid-scalar p...

Conclusion: In this present study, we described a new 3D cholesteatoma cell culture model developed using cell sheet technology and demonstrated the efficacy of diclofenac sodium on cholesteatoma for the first time in the literature. It may be used in patients with chronic otitis media with cholesteatoma, but further studies investigating ototoxic and neurotoxic effects of this molecule are needed.

Conclusions: The findings of the present study suggest that the phenotypic characteristics of EOM closely resemble those of otitis media associated with EGPA in early stages before the appearance of vasculitis. Therefore, it is challenging to differentiate the two conditions purely on the basis of otorhinological examinations.

CONCLUSIONS: Risk of childhood AOM varies with age. Significant association with AOM was found for gender and breastfeeding at specific ages and for household smoking, presence of siblings, and pet birds at all the studied ages. PMID: 31421634 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionsDespite guidance to use the ‘wait and see’ approach in the age group analyzed, this strategy is not often used for AOM, as previously noted in other studies in hospital settings. Broad-spectrum antibiotic prescription was more frequent when pharyngitis was not confirmed by rapid test, in keeping with evidence from other st udies that diagnostic uncertainty leads to overuse of antibiotics.
