Changes in Cortical Auditory Evoked Potentials by Ipsilateral, Contralateral and Binaural Speech Stimulation in Normal-Hearing Adults.
Conclusion: Spectrally different speech sounds and input sides are encoded differently at the cortical level in normal-hearing adults. Standardized speech stimuli, as well as specific input sides of speech, are needed to examine normal development or rehabilitation-related changes of the auditory cortex in the future.

Deep Neck Inflammation: Probable Kawasaki Disease in Korean Children.
Conclusion: A quarter of children presenting with deep neck inflammation were diagnosed with KD. KD should be considered in children showing deep neck inflammation unresponsive to empirical antibiotic therapy after 3 days, especially in those presenting with deep neck cellulitis rather than deep neck abscess.

Vestibulocochlear Symptoms Caused by Vertebrobasilar Dolichoectasia.
Conclusion: Vestibulocochlear symptoms such as SNHL, recurrent paroxysmal vertigo, or typewriter tinnitus can be precipitated from a neurovascular compression of the vestibulocochlear nerve by VBD. Because proper medical or surgical treatments may stop the disease progression or improve audio-vestibular symptoms in subjects with VBD, a high index of suspicion and meticulous radiologic evaluation are needed when vestibulocochlear symptoms are not otherwise explainable, and if VBD is confirmed to cause audiovestibular manifestation, a thorough oto-neurotologic evaluation should be performed before initial treatment.

Clinical Implication of Facial Nerve Decompression in Complete Bell's Palsy: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis.
Authors: Lee SY, Seong J, Kim YH Abstract We compared the therapeutic efficacy of facial nerve decompression (FND) and conservative treatment in patients with Bell's palsy through a systematic review and meta-analysis. Primary database search was performed in PubMed, Medline, and Embase. After screening, 13 studies were assessed for their eligibility. Among them, seven studies employing either the House-Brackmann grading system (HBGS) or May's classification (modified HBGS) were selected for quantitative and qualitative analysis. Based on May's classification, the degree of recovery was classified into complete (HB...

Neutrophils as a Protagonist and Target in Chronic Rhinosinusitis.
Authors: Wang H, Pan L, Liu Z Abstract Neutrophils have traditionally been acknowledged as the first immune cells that are recruited to inflamed tissues during acute inflammation. By contrast, their importance in the context of chronic inflammation has been studied in less depth. Neutrophils can be recruited and are largely present in the nasal mucosa of patients with chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) both in Asians and in Caucasians. Increased infiltration of neutrophils in patients with CRS has been linked to poor corticosteroid response and disease prognosis. Meanwhile, tissue neutrophils may possess specific phenoty...

Conclusion: In our study, labyrinthectomy had an impact on the responses recorded from the contralateral ear, while IT gentamicin ablated the ipsilateral labyrinthine function without affecting the contralateral responses, possibly because of a milder, more gradual impact. We also show for the first time the order that IT gentamicin application affects the semicircular canals, with the lateral being the first to be affected.

Skeletal-muscle area and index at the third lumbar (L3) vertebra level (L3MA and L3MI) are recommended for the detection of sarcopenia. However, L3 level is not included in many imaging protocols and there are no data for optimal levels and cutoffs for the diagnosis of sarcopenia in head and neck computed tomography (HNCT) scans.
