Effects on cervical vestibular-evoked myogenic potentials of four clinically used head and neck measurement positions in healthy subjects
CONCLUSIONS AND SIGNIFICANCE: Body positions in which the head is elevated produce a quicker and larger cVEMP response compared to positions in which the head is not elevated. The difference in ARs among positions can be ignored as long as the correction is made.PMID:34314287 | DOI:10.1080/00016489.2021.1943520 (Source: Acta Oto-Laryngologica)

Laryngoscopic characteristics related to the risk of cancerization of vocal cord leukoplakia
Acta Otolaryngol. 2021 Jul 27:1-6. doi: 10.1080/00016489.2021.1951444. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND: The diagnosis of vocal cord leukoplakia mainly relies on laryngoscopy. The morphology of vocal cord leukoplakia under laryngoscope is closely related to the pathological nature of leukoplakia. The specific manifestations associated with high-risk vocal cord leukoplakia remain to be explored.OBJECTIVE: To investigate the characteristics of low-risk and high-risk vocal cord leukoplakia under conventional white light imaging (WLI) laryngoscopy and its correlations with narrow band imaging (NBI) laryngoscopy.METHODS...

Usefulness of stress-related hormones as predictors and prognostic factors for idiopathic sudden sensorineural hearing loss
CONCLUSION: We demonstrated the possible role of stress-related hormones in the pathogenesis of ISSNHL and suggest that depressive stress response can be a strong predictor of treatment response in patients with ISSNHL. However, the impact of response to stress on the inner ear and endolymph homeostasis remains unknown. Since this is a cross-sectional study, we can only comment on the relationship between stress and ISSNHL, not a causal relationship. Further investigation is necessary to identify the mechanism of interaction between stress and hearing ability in the inner ear.PMID:34191673 | DOI:10.1080/00016489.2021.19361...

Comparison of inner ear deficits in Meniere's variants and their significance
CONCLUSIONS: Comparing the declining sequence of inner ear deficits in two inner ear disorders may help determine whether both disorders share a similar mechanism.PMID:34154499 | DOI:10.1080/00016489.2021.1934537 (Source: Acta Oto-Laryngologica)

Audiologic outcomes and complications of active middle ear implantation in older adults
Acta Otolaryngol. 2021 Jun 14:1-5. doi: 10.1080/00016489.2021.1927174. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND: A few studies have reported the use of middle ear implants (MEIs) in older adults.OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the audiologic outcomes and postoperative complications of MEIs in older adults.METHODS: This retrospective study reviewed audiologic data and medical records from a single referral centre. We identified 34 patients aged ≥65 years who underwent middle ear implantation using the Vibrant SoundbridgeTM device. Preoperative audiometric testing and postoperative aided audiometric testing were performed to eval...
