Efficacy of combined canalith-repositioning procedure and supine to prolonged lateral position in treating posterior canal benign paroxysmal positional vertigo
Posterior benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (p-BPPV) is the most common type of BPPV, and canalith-repositioning procedure (CRP) is frequently applied for treatment. Supine to prolonged lateral position (SPLP), a simple home-based maneuver, can be performed for treatment of p-BPPV. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether combination of CRP and SPLP could be more effective in symptom alleviation compared with CRP alone and reduce times of repeated CRP for patients with p-BBPV.

Smart needle to diagnose metastatic lymph node using electrical impedance spectroscopy
The cause of cervical lymphadenopathy varies from inflammation to malignancy. Accurate and prompt diagnosis is crucial as delayed detection of malignant lymph node can lead to a worse prognosis. To improve the diagnostic accuracy of metastatic lymph node, electrical spectroscopy was employed to study human normal and metastatic lymph nodes using a hypodermic needle with fine interdigitated electrodes on its tip (EoN).

Endonasal endoscopic surgery for sinonasal squamous cell carcinoma from an oncological perspective
Endonasal endoscopic surgery (EES) has been applied to the management of sinonasal (SN) tumors based on recent advances in endoscopic surgical techniques and technologies over the past three decades. EES has been mainly indicated for benign tumors and less aggressive malignant tumors. Notwithstanding this, EES has been gradually adopted for squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), which is the most common histology among SN malignancies. However, an analysis of the outcomes of EES for patients with SCC is difficult because most articles included SCC a wide range of different tumor histologies. (Source: Auris, Nasus, Larynx)
