[Neurofeedback for the treatment of chronic tinnitus : Review and future perspectives].
Authors: Kleinjung T, Thüring C, Güntensperger D, Neff P, Meyer M Abstract Neurofeedback is a noninvasive neuromodulation technique employing real-time display of brain activity in terms of electroencephalography (EEG) signals to teach self-regulation of distinct patterns of brain activity or influence brain activity in a targeted manner. The benefit of this approach for control of symptoms in attention deficit disorders, hyperactivity, depression, and migraine has been proven. Studies in recent years have also repeatedly shown this treatment to improve tinnitus symptoms, although it has not become e...

[Developments in dysphagia diagnostics : Presentation of an interdisciplinary concept].
Authors: Pflug C, Flügel T, Nienstedt JC Abstract Demographic developments and medical progress will cause the already high prevalence of swallowing disorders to increase further in the future. With the same number of specialists and economic resources, it is necessary to improve the efficiency of dysphagia diagnostics and continue to offer patients a treatment concept tailored to their needs. Manifold and often co-existing causes of dysphagia require interdisciplinary cooperation in this area. Endoscopic swallowing diagnostics play a prominent role in dysphagia diagnostics and should always contain ...

CONCLUSION: Individual optimization of speech intelligibility with a CI speech processor should not be performed in the range of 65-70 dB only, but also at lower levels. Measurements at 50 dB currently seem to be a useful addition. PMID: 29119199 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: HNO)

Shaping the nasal dorsum.
This article addresses the main current concepts that play a significant role in dorsal modifications: proper exposure at the keystone, component separation and incremental reduction, straightening the septum and positioning it in the midline, mobilizing and reshaping the nasal bones by osteotomies and osteoplasties, and finally reconstituting a barrel vault of appropriate width and proper contour. The importance of power tools and piezoelectric instrumentation is highlighted, as well as the relevance of simulation and computed tomography (CT) imaging as key to bone and septal work. Finally, the key principles of...

[Orbital decompression : Indications, technique, results].
Authors: Welkoborsky HJ, Graß SK, Küstermeyer J, Steinke KV Abstract Orbital decompression is an effective surgical procedure to reduce intraorbital pressure. Causes may diseases leading to rapid pressure increases, e. g., bleedings, and those causing slower, progressive pressure increases, e. g., tumors or Graves' orbitopathy. During fat tissue decompression, peri- and retrobulbar adipose tissue is removed; in bony decompression, one or more bony orbital walls are removed (one-, two-, or three-wall decompression). In many cases the procedures are combined. Recent developments are the trans...

Authors: Knopke S, Olze H Abstract The relevance of assessing cognitive functioning is increasing against the background of the continuing demographic changes. Up to a few years ago the focus was on the effects of cochlear implantation in children born deaf in comparison to healthy individuals. Currently, the question arises whether hearing rehabilitation in the elderly, e.g. by postlingual cochlear implantation, has a protective effect on cognitive functioning and therefore on the risk of onset of dementia. This review describes the association of cognitive functioning with hearing disorders and cochlear implantat...

Use of a fibrinogen-thrombin sponge in rhinoplasty.
CONCLUSION: The collagen patch TachoSil® is eligible for various indications in rhinoplasty. It is a useful material predominantly for nasal dorsum augmentation by sandwiching diced or solid cartilage in the collagen patch, leading to better graft fixation and precise profile shaping. At the same time, TachoSil® helps with blood control. Follow-up studies will be performed to assess the material's long-term behavior. PMID: 28939917 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: HNO)

There are no international evidence-based restaging guidelines. Decisions concerning neck dissection (ND) after primary radiochemotherapy (RCT) are often individually derived in the respective tumor conferences and are therefore subject to variance. Compared to the UK or USA, in Germany there is a high level of ex...

Authors: Laskawi R, Olthoff A Abstract During recent decades, the clinical use of botulinum toxin has become increasingly well established. In the field of otorhinolaryngology there are many indications for which botulinum toxin can improve patients' quality of life. These include applications in the region of the head and neck muscles and the autonomic nervous system in patients suffering from movement disorders of special muscles and secretory disorders (salivary, lacrimal, and sweat glands). The present article presents an overview of well-established and new indications for application of botulinum toxin in the...

Treatment outcomes of recurrent respiratory papillomatosis : Retrospective analysis of juvenile and adult cases.
CONCLUSION: RRP is a rare disease. Treatment requires experience and may be very difficult. The analysis of the course of the disease has shown that the treatment of choice is surgical excision with the CO2 laser combined with the quadrivalent or polyvalent vaccine. Consequent vaccination of both boys and girls has the potential to reduce the occurrence of RRP. PMID: 28840259 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: HNO)

Recently, this disease has increasingly been the focus of intensive research. Previous work has shown that AR has a significant impact on sleep quality. To date there are no published studies demonstrating a quantitative association between the extent of control of AR and the severity of compromised sleep quality. METHODS: Patients with AR were prospectively recruited into our cr...

[Cochlear implantation in a girl with 7q-microdeletion syndrome].
Authors: Roemer A, Lenarz T, Lesinski-Schiedat A Abstract One of the rare genetic diseases with sensory hearing loss is the microdeletion 7q syndrome. First described in the 1990s, only 7 cases of patients with this disease are described in the literature. Although this mutation is not well known, otological treatment is necessary if the DFNA5 gene is affected. A mutation in this gene leads to progressive hearing loss. Affected children therefore need regular evaluation of their hearing to ensure adequate treatment with hearing aids at early stages. We now present a case of an affected child with sen...

Authors: Schwemmle C, Arens C Abstract Swallowing is a dynamic process that requires more than 30 muscles in the recruitment/coordination of the lips, tongue, palate, pharynx, larynx and esophagus. The eating and swallowing procedure is learned in sensitive or critical periods: when a certain degree of maturation has been achieved, the appropriate stimulus permits a certain milestone of development to occur. The swallowing procedure occurs in three main stages oral, pharyngeal, and esophageal. Therefore, swallowing disorders may present in any, some, or all of these stages in addition to feeding...

Sjogren's syndrome, various vasculitides and sarcoidosis represent the most common autoimmune disorders in otorhinolaryngology, but IgG4-related diseases, relapsing polychondritis and autoimmune disorders of the mucosa are also observed. Autoimmune diseases can lead to sensorineural deficits. Both hypo- and hyperthyroidism can be cau...
