Mandibular resection in patients with head and neck cancer: acute and long-term complications after reconstruction
CONCLUSIONS: A majority of patients undergoing resection and reconstruction due to oral cancer/ORN suffered from postoperative complications regardless of indication, comorbidity status or reconstruction technique. The risk of Clavien-Dindo grade IIIa-V events was significantly lower for patients treated with primary closure without grafts.SIGNIFICANCE: The results from this study clarifies the importance of in-depth analyse prior to decision of treatment for patients with head and neck cancer.PMID:35023428 | DOI:10.1080/00016489.2021.2021283 (Source: Acta Oto-Laryngologica)

Prevalence of cystic metastases in a consecutive cohort of surgically removed branchial cleft cysts
CONCLUSION AND SIGNIFICANCE: When the investigation protocol for solitary cystic lesions of the neck is followed, the negative predictive value for malignancy is 97%. All adult patients with a cytologic verified diagnosis of branchial cyst should be examined with HPV-analysis of the cystic sample before excision of the cyst. Failure of predicting a malignancy is often associated with cytology of poor cellularity which may be improved by more frequent use of ultrasound guided fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC).PMID:34962438 | DOI:10.1080/00016489.2021.2016951 (Source: Acta Oto-Laryngologica)

Characteristics of electrically evoked auditory brainstem response in children with large vestibular aqueduct syndrome after cochlear implantation
CONCLUSION AND SIGNIFICANCE: SNHL children with LVAS and no IEMs have similar conduction of the auditory pathway. In the LVAS group, the conduction of the auditory pathway becomes better with the decrease of VA width. Rational use of post-operative EABRs and the measurement of anatomical parameters can effectively assess the development of part auditory pathways in LVAS children, which may be helpful in predicting post-operative speech and hearing recovery.PMID:34935592 | DOI:10.1080/00016489.2021.2012255 (Source: Acta Oto-Laryngologica)

Examination of risk factors for postoperative vestibular symptoms in patients with cholesteatoma
Acta Otolaryngol. 2021 Dec 19:1-6. doi: 10.1080/00016489.2021.2014071. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND: In cholesteatoma, the prognosis of tympanoplasty has been well discussed in terms of hearing outcomes and residual or recurrent lesions. Postoperative dizziness and vertigo are major complications of tympanoplasty; however, few reports are available.AIMS/OBJECTIVES: We investigated each condition of cholesteatoma postoperative vestibular risk using the STAM system and staging published by EAONO/JOS, as well as findings on bony destruction.MATERIAL AND METHODS: From April 2010 to March 2021, 156 patients (166 ear...

Tracheotomy as a predictor of remission and demise for juvenile-onset recurrent respiratory papillomatosis
Acta Otolaryngol. 2021 Dec 19:1-5. doi: 10.1080/00016489.2021.2014070. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTBACKGROUD: The pros and cons of tracheotomy, as a classic treatment of juvenile-onset recurrent respiratory papillomatosis (JORRP), have gradually been recognized, but the exact impact of tracheotomy on remission and demise is not clear.OBJECTIVES: To investigate the predicting influence of tracheotomy on prognosis for JORRP.MATERIAL AND METHODS: Three hundred forty two patients with JORRP treated in Beijing Tongren Hospital were retrospectively reviewed. The clinical characteristics and prognosis parameters were compared i...

Clinical manifestations and genetic analysis of a family with neurofibromatosis type 2
CONCLUSIONS: Hearing impairment was the most common clinical manifestation in this family. The NF2 gene is a gene of interest that warrants familial genetic screening.PMID:34915804 | DOI:10.1080/00016489.2021.2012594 (Source: Acta Oto-Laryngologica)
