Cold knife dissection and bipolar diathermy Vs harmonic scalpel in parotid gland surgery for benign tumours.
CONCLUSIONS: Harmonic scalpel is a safe and effective tool to perform parotid surgery in benign tumours. However, a shorter surgical time was the only advantage found over the traditional cold dissection and bipolar dissection method.

Role of age and anticoagulants in recurrent idiopathic epistaxis.
Abstract OBJECTIVE: Epistaxis is one of the commonest causes of attendance of Otolaryngology emergency rooms. Given its incidence, potential severity and high recurrence rate, a systematic and careful management is mandatory. This work aims to define prognostic factors of epistaxis recurrence. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Retrospective review of medical records of patients with epistaxis admitted to our emergency department from January 2012 to December 2016. Data of 1005 patients with idiopathic epistaxis were analysed and independent risk factors for recurrence were determined by multiple logistic regression analy...

Improving surgical results in velopharyngeal surgery: our experience in the last decade.
fre J Abstract BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The surgical techniques used to treat velopharyngeal collapse in obstructive sleep apnoea patients have evolved over recent years. Our aim was to determine whether these new techniques have better surgical results. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This is a retrospective study of moderate to severe obstructive sleep apnoea patients surgically treated from 2006 to 2018. Only adult patients with no compliance to positive airway pressure and without simultaneous multilevel surgery were included. During this period, 4 different techniques were performed: uvulopalatopharyngoplasty, lat...

Abstract INTRODUCTION: The use of mometasone furoate (MF) intranasal spray in treating adenoid hypertrophy (AH) has a variable outcome due the different methods of adenoid size evaluation. The aim of our study was to evaluate the effect of MF intranasal spray in children and adolescents with AH using a reliable and consistent endoscopic evaluation. MATERIAL AND METHOD: A prospective interventional study was conducted. Evaluation took place during the first visit (week 0) and second visit (week 12). Symptoms of nasal obstruction, rhinorrhoea, cough and snoring were assessed, and an overall total symptoms score...

Executive summary of the SEORL CCC-SEEN consensus statement on post-thyroidectomy hypoparathyroidism.
lá C Abstract Hypoparathyroidism is the most common complication after total or completion thyroidectomy. It is defined as the presence of hypocalcemia accompanied by low or inappropriately normal parathyroid hormone (PTH) levels. Acute hypocalcemia is a potential lethal complication. Hypocalcemia treatment is based on endovenous or oral calcium supplements as well as oral calcitriol, depending on the severity of the symptoms. The risk of clinical hypocalcemia after bilateral thyroidectomy is considered very low if postoperative intact PTH decrease less than 80% with respect to preoperative levels. These pa...

Postoperative complications after adenotonsillectomy in two paediatric groups: Obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome and recurrent tonsillitis.
CONCLUSIONS: No differences were found in the percentage of complications between the two groups. Although the OSAS group exhibited more respiratory events, these occurred in the immediate postoperative period; otherwise, there was a higher risk of bleeding in the tonsillitis group. These results support the findings indicating that routine PICU admission is not required for these patients.

Modified inspiratory muscle training (m-IMT) as promising treatment for gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GERD).
ale M Abstract BACKGROUND: Gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is one of the most common diseases, but is still a challenge to cure. Different medical treatments are used, first of all Proton pump inhibitors (PPIs), however these are sometimes ineffective and long-term intake can lead to underestimated complications. Recently, some studies investigated the role of inspiratory muscle training (IMT) in the medical treatment of GERD. It seems that IMT is able to increase the pressure generated by the lower oesophageal sphincter (LES), reduce spontaneous releases of LES, acid exposure, use of PPIs, and improve sy...

CONCLUSIONS: Invasive fungal sinusitis should be considered a medical emergency due to its high mortality. The diagnosis is based on a high index of suspicion in patients with predisposing factors (leukaemia, neutropenia, persistent fever, nasogastric tube) and endoscopic nasal evaluation. Antifungal medical treatment and aggressive nasal endoscopic surgery is indicated regardless of the patient's condition to reduce the fungal burden and associated high mortality. The treatment must be provided by a multidisciplinary team that includes paediatrics, haemato-oncology, infectology and otorhinolaryngology. PMID: 30773220...
