Postoperative Prescriptions and Corresponding Opioid Consumption After Septoplasty or Rhinoplasty.
The objective of our study was to assess the relationship between postoperative opioid prescribing patterns and opioid consumption among patients who underwent septoplasty or rhinoplasty. A chart review of patients who underwent either septoplasty or rhinoplasty by 3 surgeons between July 2016 and June 2017 was performed, and pertinent clinical data were collected including the amount of narcotic pain medications prescribed. A telephone interview was then conducted to assess opioid usage and pain control regimen postoperatively. The number of opioid tablets prescribed and the number consumed were converted to total morphin...

Measurement of Nasal Nitric Oxide in Chronic Rhinosinusitis and Its Relationship to Patient-Reported Outcome: A Longitudinal Pilot Study.
CONCLUSION: Irrespective of occluded or open ostiomeatal complexes, no statistically significant differences in nNO were found in CRS compared with healthy controls using aspiration and humming methods. Treatment of CRS improved sinus patency without accompanying a significant change in nNO. This study can therefore not conclude that nNO can be used as a diagnostic tool for CRS without polyposis.

New Technique in Nasal Tip Plasty: Sandwich Technique Using Cartilage and Septal Bone Complex.
Abstract OBJECTIVES: It is extremely difficult to obtain ideal tip projection and nose lengthening by septal extension graft using only septal cartilage in Asians, because their nasal septal and alar cartilages are small and weak. Therefore, we introduce a new septal extension graft using a cartilage-bone complex with the vomer and the perpendicular plate of the ethmoid bone as well as cartilage to obtain optimal outcomes. METHODS: Participants included 30 patients who underwent surgery by external approach. The septal cartilage, vomer, and perpendicular plate of the ethmoid bone harvested by septoplasty were...

Olfactory Bulb Volume and Olfactory Sulcus Depth in Patients With OSA: An MRI Evaluation.
Abstract OBJECTIVES: We evaluated olfactory functions in patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). METHODS: The cranial magnetic resonance images of 58 adult patients (36 males and 22 females) aged 27 to 79 years were retrieved from the hospital picture archiving and communication system (PACS) system. There were 29 patients with OSA (17 males and 12 females), diagnosed according to the polysomnography results. A control group consisted of 29 healthy patients without OSA. Olfactory bulb (OB) volume and olfactory sulcus (OS) depth measurements were performed. Nasal septal deviation (SD) was also evaluated a...

The objective of this study is to evaluate otitis media with effusion (OME) among patients with parapharyngeal tumor. We have experienced 82 parapharyngeal tumor cases and encountered 14 patients complaining of hearing loss due to OME as the initial symptom. These patients showed normal nasopharyngeal findings and the presence of tumor had been detected long time after the beginning of their hearing symptoms (4 months to 13 years: median 2.5 years). Six patients had undergone ventilation tube insertion on the affected ear, which may lead to delay in diagnosis. Pathological examination was performed in 76 of 82 patients. Am...

Cochlear Implant Surgery: How to Fix Receiver/Stimulator Avoiding Extrusion.
Abstract Cochlear implant (CI) surgery is generally safe and associated with a limited number of complications, among which the extrusion of the receiver/stimulator (R/S) or the electrode misplacement and migration might require a CI re-implantation. The aim of this pilot study is to describe a new technique to firmly fix the R/S using the Mitek suture anchors system (Depuy Mitek Surgical Products, Inc. Raynham, Massachusetts). We tested two different models and in our experience, the web of suture created with this device can improve the stability of the bond of the R/S to the underlying curved bone surface. So, ...

The Role of the Parotid-Mastoid Fascia in Identification of the Facial Nerve Trunk During Parotidectomy.
CONCLUSION: The parotid fascia, particularly the parotid-mastoid segment overlying the facial nerve trunk, can be utilized as an additional landmark of depth to help identify the facial nerve trunk during a parotidectomy in conjunction with other commonly used standard anatomic landmarks. The parotid fascia sling spans from the mastoid and tragal pointer to the parotid gland and can be easily palpated intraoperatively. Once the fascia is removed, the facial nerve trunk is identified.

Can MDCT Scan of the Temporal Bone Looking at Pneumatization Predict Surgical Vulnerability of the Facial Nerve?
CONCLUSION: Cochleariform process is an important landmark to localize the tympanic segment of the facial canal. In sclerosed mastoids, scutum-CP and scutum-promontorium distances decreased. There was no relationship between FCD rates and mastoid pneumatization levels. It may be due to the development of FCD that occurs during the intrauterine period. In endoscopic and classic ear surgeries, mastoid pneumatization must be evaluated preoperatively to avoid facial nerve injuries.

Investigation of Oxidative Stress in Antrochoanal Polyp Etiology.
MA Abstract Antrochoanal polyps (ACPs) are benign lesions of the paranasal sinuses. Similarities between ACPs and nasal polyps have been previously investigated. However, oxidative stress has been implicated but not investigated in terms of the etiology of ACPs. Thus, the aim of this study was to investigate oxidative stress in the etiology of ACPs. The study population comprised 93 patients divided into 3 groups. Group 1 consisted of 30 patients with ACPs. Group 2 consisted of 33 patients with nasal septal deviation. Group 3 comprised 30 healthy individuals. Venous blood was taken from all participants, and tota...

Evaluation of the Presence of Sensorineural Hearing Loss and the Relationship With Intraoperative Findings in Cholesteatoma.
Abstract We investigated whether cholesteatoma is associated with sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) and the effects of a lateral semicircular canal (LSCC) fistula, destruction of stapes, localization of cholesteatoma, and air-bone gap (ABG) size on SNHL. The charts of 159 patients who had received surgery for unilateral cholesteatoma were examined retrospectively. In all patients, air conduction and bone conduction (BC) thresholds in both ears were measured at 500, 1000, 2000, and 4000 Hz. Differences in BC thresholds between ears with cholesteatoma and contralateral ears were calculated. Demographics, localizatio...
