Educational Value of Endoscopic Versus Microscopic Ear Surgery
Ann Otol Rhinol Laryngol. 2021 May 6:34894211012600. doi: 10.1177/00034894211012600. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTOBJECTIVE: To compare the educational value of endoscopic ear surgery versus microscopic ear surgery among medical students.METHODS: Medical students anonymously completed a cross-sectional survey immediately after observing endoscopic or microscopic ear surgery. A Likert scale (1 = worst, 5 = best) was used to analyze variables across 3 domains including: (1) area of interest visibility, (2) optical quality, (3) education and understanding. The Mann-Whitney U-test and multivariable linear regression were used...

Surgery with Post-Operative Endoscopy Improves Recurrence Detection in Sinonasal Malignancies
CONCLUSION: Local recurrence of SNM is the most common site for recurrent disease and nasal endoscopy identified half of these cases. 50% of these recurrences were within the paranasal sinuses and would not have been easily identified if the sinuses were not open for inspection. Thus, open sinus cavities aid in the detection of tumor recurrence and is another advantage of surgery in the management of SNM.PMID:33955268 | DOI:10.1177/00034894211011449 (Source: The Annals of Otology, Rhinology, and Laryngology)

Vocal Fold Injection Augmentation for Post-Airway Reconstruction Dysphonia: A Case Series
CONCLUSION: Patients with PARD represent a complex subset of patients. VFIA is a straightforward intervention that may improve voice perception. Many patients reported subjective improvement despite minimal objective measurement. Further work is warranted to elucidate the role of injection in management of PARD.PMID:33949216 | DOI:10.1177/00034894211012594 (Source: The Annals of Otology, Rhinology, and Laryngology)

The Thickness of the facial Nerve Sheath Consistently Varies by Region in Its Intra-Tympanic Course on Cadaveric Study
CONCLUSION: In cases of cholesteatoma and keratosis obturans involving the vertical FN, the disease process can be separated from the FN sheath because of the sheath thickness in this region. Disease in the horizontal segment involves a thinner sheath and separating the disease process from the nerve is more difficult in this area.PMID:33890496 | DOI:10.1177/00034894211007241 (Source: The Annals of Otology, Rhinology, and Laryngology)

Predicting Gag, Discomfort, and Laryngeal Visualization in Patients Undergoing Flexible Laryngoscopy with Stroboscopy
CONCLUSIONS: While not predictive of GSI or level of laryngeal visualization, the PGS was found to be a useful tool in predicting patient experience of gagging and discomfort during FL-S, further reinforcing the subjective experience of this procedure. Use of the PGS may be helpful in identifying specific candidates who may struggle with subjective discomfort or gagging during FL-S for future studies considering interventions to manage and meaningfully decrease discomfort. Having such an instrument is important given the low number of individuals who struggle with discomfort during the exam.PMID:33890497 | DOI:10.1177/0003...

CONCLUSIONS: Overall, the SPT showed a higher correlation with allergic rhinitis symptoms than the MAST or ImmunoCAP for 4 indoor allergens.

Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTPURPOSE: The varied treatment options available to patients with HPV-positive oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (OPSCC) can cause significant patient confusion. In particular, transoral robotic surgery (TORS) has become widely used for treatment of HPV-positive OPSCC. As patients commonly refer to the internet for additional information, we aim to evaluate the quality of online patient educational materials for TORS in comparison to other otolaryngology surgical procedures.METHODS: The terms "transor...

Survey of Anesthesiologists on Topical Vasoconstrictors and Intravenous Tranexamic Acid for Endoscopic Sinus Surgery
CONCLUSION: Many anesthesia providers are unfamiliar with safety and efficacy literature regarding agents used to improve hemostasis for ESS, highlighting a need for development of relevant educational resources. Rhinologic surgeons have an opportunity to communicate with anesthesia colleagues on the use of hemostatic agents to improve the surgical field during ESS.PMID:33840220 | DOI:10.1177/00034894211005940 (Source: The Annals of Otology, Rhinology, and Laryngology)
