Usefulness of preoperative computed tomography findings for airway management in patients with acute odontogenic infection: a retrospective study
This study was performed to determine the most important imaging findings indicating preoperative selection of an appropriate intubation method. This retrospective study included 113 patients who underwent anti-inflammatory treatment for odontogenic infection. The patients were divided into two groups according to the intubation method: a Macintosh laryngoscope (45 patients) and others (video laryngoscope and fiberscope) (68 patients). The extent of inflammation in each causative tooth, the severity of inflammation (S1 –4), and their influence on the airway were evaluated by computed tomography. The causative teeth were ...

What Is In That Ear?
Discussion The external auditory canal mainly derives from the ectoderm however it abuts other structures which arise from mesodermal or endodermal tissues. The lateral 1/3 is primarily cartilaginous with the inner 2/3rd being bony with the tympanic, temporal and mastoid bone forming various parts. The canal is lined with squamous epithelium and has various structures such as sebaceous glands, hair follicles and of course ceruminous glands. It is not surprising that this structure is subject to obstruction given its small size. Cerumen, hair and other cellular debris may become impacted if they are not regularly expelled f...

Who Gets Pott ’ s Puffy Tumor?
Discussion Pott’s puffy tumor (PPT) was first described by Sir Percivall Pott in 1775 and who also described other orthopaedic and oncological diseases subsequently named for him. “It is a subperiosteal abscess of the anterior wall of the frontal sinus associated with underlying frontal osteomyelitis.” The tender edema and swelling of the forehead is the sign of PPT. Associated fever, headache, and rhinorrhea along with similar problems such as postnasal drip or nasal congestion are common. Associated ophthalmological problems include peri-orbital or eyelid edema and/or preseptal cellulitis. Ptosis and di...

What Are Potential Complications of Hearing Aids?
Discussion Hearing loss can range from profound deafness to fairly minor loss. The causes vary based on age, type of loss (sensorineuronal or conductive, about half of hearing loss in children has a genetic cause), degree and audiometric configuration. Sensorineuronal hearing loss involves the cochlea and neural connections to the brain and auditory cortex. Conductive hearing loss involves structures from the external ear to the oval window. Deafness is defined as a hearing loss > 90 dB. Hearing loss can affect the living and learning of children more than many people realize. “A child with a mild hearing loss can...
