Superficial Parotidectomy: Impact of Postoperative Drainage.
CONCLUSION: Overall, the risk of complications after SP increased with secretion beyond 25 mL (ie, drainage for more than 24 hours). This applied in particular to infections and seromas/hematomas demanding treatment. The use of routine drainage after SP is questionable, and a randomized trial is warranted to unravel the necessity of postoperative drainage.

Can Tonsillar Retractor-Induced Tongue Edema Be a New Complication in Pediatric Patients Undergoing Tonsillectomy Detected by Ultrasonography? A Prospective, Case-Controlled, Observational Study.
CONCLUSIONS AND SIGNIFICANCE: Tonsillar retractor does cause tongue edema in tonsillectomy surgeries. This tongue edema seems to be a result of the pressure applied by the tonsillar retractor. This study is the first to demonstrate the possible role of ultrasonography examination in determining the tonsillar retractor-induced tongue edema in pediatric patients.

Otogenic Pneumocephalus After Tegmen Bone Reconstruction: A Case Report.
Abstract Pneumocephalus is usually induced by trauma, infections, tumors of the skull base, and surgical interventions. Spontaneous pneumocephalus occurs due to a defect in the temporal bone with no obvious cause. Few cases have been reported with spontaneous otogenic pneumocephalus. However, delayed postoperative pneumocephalus is rarely reported in the literature. Here, we present a case of otogenic pneumocephalus through Eustachian tube (ET) preceded by nose blowing 10 days after surgical treatment of meningoencephalocele of the right middle ear (ME) cleft and reconstruction of tegmen and dural defects.

We report delayed infections in 2 patients after unilateral total oncologic maxillectomy and reconstruction using Medpor implants for an ossifying fibroma and squamous cell carcinoma, respectively. In the first patient, annual interval computed tomography (CT) scans showed no recurrence of tumor or inflammatory changes. The second was lost to follow-up after adjuvant chemoradiation 1 year after resection. Patients both presented with swelling, drainage, and erythema around the implant at a mean of 4.5 years following maxillectomy. Both failed several attempts at conservative treatment.

Endoscopic Trans-Lateral Molar Approach to Infratemporal Fossa Lesions.
CONCLUSION: The ETLM approach is convenient, minimally invasive, and allows complete excision of benign ITF lesions, posterior to the lateral pterygoid muscle and mainly below the level of the hard palate. It is a simple and direct access to the ITF, but it is a narrow access because of the limitations of bones and soft tissues. Appropriate patient selection is mandatory for successful surgery.

Current Treatment Options for Patulous Eustachian Tube: A Review of the Literature.
CONCLUSION: On the basis of the available literature, it seems that conservative treatments can be considered as a primary therapeutic option for PET. Concerning the surgical interventions they seem to be a safe and valuable solution in patients with refractory disease. Finally, given the low level of evidence, prospective case-control studies with long follow-up and robust setting looking into the therapeutic approach of PET are required. The need for establishment of standard criteria of PET recovery should be underlined. PMID: 32538676 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Ear, Nose and Throat Journal)

Abstract With the broad indications for dental implantation, complications rates have increased. Dental implant displacement into the maxillary sinus, although rare, can occur during the restoration of maxillary posterior teeth. We performed a 6-year retrospective review and found 3 cases with displaced implants in the maxillary sinus. Detailed information, including surgical indications and dental implant removal methods, is provided. Dental implants can be dislocated to the maxillary sinus perioperatively or postoperatively. Endoscopic sinus surgery can be performed to remove the implant and restore sinus patenc...

Isolated Myxoma of the External Auditory Canal: A Case Report and Literature Review.
We present the case of a 53-year-old patient who consulted for a hearing loss that has been evolving for 3 years. Otoscopy revealed a mass filling the external auditory canal. The scan showed a total filling of the external auditory canal with a homogenous sessile neoformation of 20 × 10 mm. This mass was completely resected and the histological examination showed spindle-shaped and star-shaped cells against an abundant myxoid background, which was consistent with myxoma. All the tests, done to eliminate Carney syndrome, did not reveal any abnormalities. The postoperative course was favorable, and no complications we...
