[New clinical applications for laser Doppler vibrometry in otology].
CONCLUSION: Many clinical questions in otology can be addressed by LDV. However, due to the high acquisition costs of an LDV system, the relatively large instrumental setup, and the large inter-ear variability of middle-ear function, the technique has not (yet) become established in clinical routine.

[Current aspects of tinnitus and depression].
Authors: Kratzsch V, Goebel G Abstract Health authorities underestimate the negative influence of emotional factors such as depression, anxiety disorders, or somatoform disorders in the development of tinnitus and their contribution to a poor prognosis. This can lead to underestimation of the impairment suffered by tinnitus patients and, consequently, a possibly incorrect treatment approach or belated initiation of therapy. Mental disorders play a large role in the S3AWMF "Tinnitus" guidelines. Thus, the somatic and psychiatric approaches for treatment of chronic tinnitus patients are combi...

[Smartphone app-supported approaches to tinnitus therapy].
Authors: Hesse G Abstract In recent years, applications (apps) for medical purposes have been developed and introduced, including apps that perform diagnostics and documentation for hearing loss and tinnitus in combination with smartphones. Even therapeutic apps, particularly for chronic tinnitus, have been launched. This review discusses the existing scientific literature for these smartphone applications. For tinnitus, Internet-based cognitive behavioral therapy has been developed and evaluated. For tinnitus therapy, introduced apps combine acoustic stimulation and music, or serve acoustic stimulation of cortical...

Rhinoplasty: lessons from "errors" : From anatomy and experience to the concept of sequential primary rhinoplasty.
CONCLUSION: The goal to reduce the rate of revision rhinoplasty and to improve the natural results can be achieved, considering the concept of sequential primary rhinoplasty. Nasal soft tissues are protected as far as possible. The current rhinoplasty concepts are not antagonist but appear as an intraoperative succession of alternative techniques from anatomy and function preservation to reconstruction of the nasal framework.

[Diagnosis and treatment of Eustachian tube dysfunction].
Authors: Schröder S, Ebmeyer J Abstract The Eustachian tube protects against secretion, germs and sound pressure from the nasopharynx, it acts as a drain, and serves pressure equalization in both directions so that the ear drum and sound-conducting apparatus can vibrate optimally. The incidence of Eustachian tube dysfunction in adults is about 1%, in children almost 40%. Symptoms are often unspecific. For diagnosis, the Eustachian tube score (ETS-5) can be used in patients with a perforated ear drum, and the ETS-7 score in patients with intact ear drum. Adenoid hypertrophy is a frequent cause of obstructive tu...

Ethnic rhinoplasty.
Authors: Cobo R Abstract Rhinoplasty is one of the main facial plastic procedures performed worldwide. Ethnic patients today are mainly mixed-race patients. Diagnosis is based on anatomical findings and surgery should be planned based on patients' needs and what they define as beautiful. Different surgical techniques are presented where a structural approach to rhinoplasty is explained. Very little tissue is resected and support structures of the nose are strengthened with sutures and grafts. A gradual approach to the nasal tip is also presented progressing from simple predictable techniques to more compl...

Turbinate reduction with complete preservation of mucosa and submucosa during rhinoplasty.
Authors: Rudes M, Schwan F, Klass F, Gassner HG Abstract BACKGROUND: Turbinate surgery is an important adjunct to functional and cosmetic rhinoplasty. Many studies have analyzed the effects of various mucosal-sparing techniques, such as radiofrequency, laser, shaver, and others. These techniques, however, result in the destruction of the submucosal tissue of the turbinate. The goal of this study was to determine whether excellent functional outcome could be achieved with techniques sparing both the mucosa and submucosa from destruction when addressing the turbinates in rhinoplasty surgery. MATERIALS AND METHODS...

Neural plasticity and its initiating conditions in tinnitus.
CONCLUSION: The latter process may be induced by transient auditory events in normal processing but it persists in tinnitus, driven by phantom signals from the auditory pathway. Several tinnitus therapies attempt to suppress tinnitus through plasticity, but repeated sessions will likely be needed to prevent tinnitus activity from returning owing to deafferentation as its initiating condition.

Postrhinoplasty fibrotic syndrome.
CONCLUSIONS: The nasal scenario described is referred to as postrhinoplasty fibrotic syndrome. It is recommended that if revision surgery is necessary by a surgeon, the scale of the surgery should be smaller than that of the primary operation. If yet another revision is necessary that surgery should be of an even smaller scale than the prior surgery. Augmentation rather than reduction rhinoplasty is clearly a better approach. With the surgical philosophy of smaller and/or less surgery with each revision (should it be necessary) the irreversible condition of postrhinoplasty fibrotic syndrome should be avoidable. ...

In conductive hearing loss, the foremost deficit is decreased audibility, for which hearing aids can compensate almost entirely through the use of level independent gain. In the instance of sensorineural hearing los...

Objective methods include impedance measurement with tympanometry and stapedius reflex measurement, otoacoustic emissions (OAE), and auditory evoked potentials (AEP). Combined with statistical analysis, the introduction of auditory steady state responses (ASSR) has enabled objective hearing tests in newborn hearing screening and automated hearing threshold assessment. The type and degree of hearing loss can be determined using the abovementioned methods. Precise...

Temperature and humidity could not be taken into account. Today, much more complex analyzes are possible using computational fluid dynamics (CFD), which are based on three-dimensional models generated from computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (M...

Authors: Basta D, Gröschel M, Ernst A Abstract Noise is an important socioeconomic problem in industrialized countries. Development of efficient treatment options for the audiological phenomena resulting from noise-induced hearing loss requires in-depth understanding of the underlying damage mechanisms causing peripheral and central nervous changes. Mechanical damage, ischemia and excitotoxicity are mainly responsible for noise-induced cell death and biophysical changes in the cochlea. Auditory synaptopathy is an additional consequence. Besides these cochlear pathologies, noise exposure leads to extensive chan...

We report the case of a 19-year-old patient who presented with recurrent circular and scaly skin changes. The patient reported wrestling as his main leisure activity.
