Surgical Anatomy of the Round Window – Implications for Cochlear Implantation
ConclusionsThe very close relation to the sensitive inner ear structures necessitates a thorough anatomic knowledge and careful insertion technique, especially when implanting patients with residual hearing. In order to avoid electrode migration between the scalae and to achieve protect the modiolus and the basilar membrane, it is recommended to aim for an electrode insertion vector from postero‐superior to antero‐inferior.This article is protected by copyright.

Diagnostic accuracy of high resolution T2 ‐weighted MRI versus contrast enhanced T1‐weighted MRI to screen for cerebellopontine angle lesions in symptomatic patients
ConclusionT2w has a very high diagnostic accuracy for the presence of CPA lesions in patients with asymmetrical audiovestibular complaints. However, in a screening protocol with T2w only, smallest vestibular schwannomas as well as rare differential diagnoses that probably only would be detected on GdT1w may remain unnoticed.

General illness and psychological factors in patients with chronic nasal symptoms
ConclusionPatients with sinonasal symptoms demonstrate high prevalence and complex associations of general illness factors, psychological distress and certain personality traits. The SNOT‐22 is a valuable tool, but it's utility is limited by correlations with these confounding factors (e.g. psychological factors) that may exaggerate the total score. Use of the SNOT‐22 component subscales is likely to provide more clinically meaningful and discriminant information.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
