Case report: An unusual case of 'black' larynx
We present a case of a 50-year-old gentleman with ulcerative necrotising supraglottitis and no co-morbidities who presented in Ear Nose and Throat Service in the Accident and Emergency department due to dysphagia and weakness. He was treated with an emergency tracheostomy with neck exploration and washout and received appropriate supporting antibiotic regime. He improved and was eventually decannulated, able to breathe phonate and swallow appropriately. After a thorough review of the literature regarding necrotising infections of the laryngeal cavity, only 7 cases have been reported, all in immunocompromised patients with ...

Transcervical Exploration via the Posterolateral Approach to Extract a Fishbone Embedded in the Paraglottic Space
We report a case of an ingested fishbone embedded in the paraglottic space, which was successfully removed through transcervical exploration of the paraglottic space via the posterolateral approach. The posterolateral approach is safe and effective for the removal of foreign bodies completely embedded in the paraglottic space.PMID:35968732 | DOI:10.1177/01455613221116334 (Source: Ear, Nose and Throat Journal)

Retained Dental Implant in the Maxillary Sinus
We present the case of a 54-year-old man who presented with chronic left sided pain and pressure found to be secondary to a displaced implant obstructing the left maxillary outflow sinus tract. A systematic review was conducted to assess the current management and treatment options for dental implants displaced into the maxillary sinus. Functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS) and the lateral window approach were both found to be safe techniques with minimal postoperative complications.PMID:35968734 | DOI:10.1177/01455613221121043 (Source: Ear, Nose and Throat Journal)

Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTWarthin's tumors of the head and neck are more common in the parotid and salivary glands and are extremely rare in the nasopharynx. This paper reports the clinical data of a patient with a nasopharyngeal Warthin's tumor and posterior nostril atresia who underwent nasal endoscopic nasal mass resection combined with posterior nostriphoplasty, and the patient has no tumor recurrence during the postoperative follow-up of until 14 months.

Clinical Features and Treatment of Congenital Pyriform Sinus Fistula: Analysis of 12 Cases
CONCLUSION AND SIGNIFICANCE: CPSF is less common in adults than in children. For patients with recurrent neck abscesses, CPSF should be highly suspected, timely angiography should be performed as soon as possible, and care should be taken to avoid missed diagnoses. The primary method for piriform fossa fistula removal is surgical treatment. Finally, tailoring treatment regimens to the patient's condition can significantly improve curative efficacy.PMID:35968827 | DOI:10.1177/01455613221117004 (Source: Ear, Nose and Throat Journal)
