Clinical-radiological correlation in temporal bone fractures.
saletta Atienza L Abstract INTRODUCTION: The diagnosis of temporal bone fractures (TBF) is based on radiological imaging. The most widely used classification divides fractures into longitudinal, transverse, and mixed. In recent years, other classifications have emerged to better predict clinical manifestations. OBJECTIVES: To review computed tomography (CT) images of TBF, define their radiological pattern, and study the concordance of the observed findings with those described in the radiological report. To analyse the association between fracture types and clinical findings. To study the impact of mastoid pn...

Hearing rehabilitation with osseointegrated hearing implant in bilateral congenital external auditory canal atresia.
CONCLUSIONS: The osseointegrated hearing implant was an effective treatment option in these patients, without significant morbidity or complications. Osseointegrated hearing implantation should be considered first line treatment for children with bilateral congenital EAC atresia, as it presents good functional results and a high level of patient satisfaction.

Comparison of the acoustic parameters obtained with different smartphones and a professional microphone.
The objective of this study is to establish whether there are significant differences when comparing the values of six acoustic parameters obtained from recordings using four smartphones and a professional microphone. The Praat programme was used to obtain the acoustic parameters: f0, Jitter, Shimmer, HNR, Alpha Ratio and L1 - L0 of the recording of a sustained vowel /a/ using iPhone SE, iPhone 6, Samsung S8, Huawei Y7 and the Behringer ECM8000 microphone. The sample was made up of 26 men and 26 women, from 18 to 26 years old without declared voice pathology. The repeated sample ANOVA test was used to compare the values. A...

Single-sided deafness: Bone conduction devices or cochlear implantation? A systematic review with meta-analysis.
CONCLUSION: Cochlear implants effectively offer better results in 2 of the 3 evaluated parameters, being a very valid option.

Primary stapedotomy: Influence of prosthesis diameter on hearing outcome.
CONCLUSION: Primary small fenestra stapedotomy is an effective and safe procedure. A postoperative ABG within 10dB was achieved in 67.2% of patients and there was a reduced incidence of sensorineural hearing loss. Hearing outcome was not influenced by diameter of the selected prosthesis. Postoperative bone conduction hearing thresholds did not differ between the groups, which revealed no significant inner ear trauma caused by the larger piston. Although we did not find evidence to suggest one piston over the other, our results showed a trend toward better results with the larger prosthesis. PMID: 32888675 [PubMed - as...

Intralabyrinthine neurinoma: Management, exeresis and auditory restoration with cochlear implant.
CONCLUSIONS: The therapeutic approach will depend on tumour size, growth rate, degree of hearing loss and presence of vestibular symptoms. Cochlear implantation (CI) in patients with ILS is possible when the cochlear nerve is present and functional. CI in patients, whether or not preceded by tumour excision, is an option with good hearing results in selected patients.

Nose sinus manometry in evaluating functional outcomes of anterior and posterior endoscopic dacryocystorhinostomy.
CONCLUSION: This study confirms a relevant physical distinction between posterior En-Dcr outcomes compared to anterior En-Dcr and reveals a significant success rate difference between the two groups of patients. The posterior surgical technique shows better results than the anterior one, by providing an almost physiological post- operative endonasal outcome. These results also showed the effectiveness of Nose Sinus Manometry in assessing the post- operative outcomes after En-Dcr.

However, some difficulties and weaknesses are still identified in these programs: the detection of late-onset hearing loss and the percentage of children who did not pass the screening and did not complete the process of diagnosis and treatment, these being cases that are lost in the process.

A, Díaz de Cerio Canduela P Abstract The choice of the most appropriate treatment in early-stage glottic cancer with anterior commissure involvement remains controversial. Its therapeutic management is complex because it is a significant prognostic indicator of local control with 37% recurrence, due to the difficulty in establishing tumour extension with understaging of up to 40%, and due to the comparison of results in series on tumours that behave variably as they progress, such as T1a, T1b and T2a with commissure involvement. Furthermore, the complexity of the surgical approach using transoral CO2 laser...

Prognostic capacity of the lymph node ratio in squamous cell carcinomas of the head and neck.
M, López M Abstract INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES: Lymph node density or lymph node ratio (LNR), defined as the quotient between the total number of positive lymph nodes and the total number of dissected lymph nodes, has demonstrated a prognostic capacity in several tumour models, including patients with head and neck squamous cell carcinomas (HNSCC). The aim of the present study is to analyse the prognostic value of LNR in a wide cohort of patients with HNSCC. METHODS: We carried out a retrospective study of a cohort of 1,311 patients with HNSCC treated with unilateral or bilateral neck dissections. Of ...
