The circadian timing of noise exposure influences noise-induced inflammatory responses in the mouse cochlea
Shichang Li, Hongwei Zheng, Zhimin Xing, Yan Liu, Lin Han, Zijing Wang, Lisheng Yu
10.1016/j.bjorl.2021.05.010
Highlights

  • Applying 6–12 kHz noise with 100 dB sound pressure level for an hour could cause a temporary threshold shift in C57BL/6J mice without hair cell loss.

  • The circadian timing of noise exposure did not affect ABR threshold shifts.

  • The circadian timing of noise exposure influences noise-induced inflammatory responses in the mouse cochlea.

  • Daytime noise may induce a greater inflammatory response than that of nighttime noise.

Extracranial non-vestibular head and neck schwannomas: a case series with the review of literature
Deviprasad Dosemane, Sushmitha Kabekkodu, Bhagyashree Jaipuria, Suja Sreedharan, Vijendra Shenoy
10.1016/j.bjorl.2021.05.013
Highlights

  • Head and neck schwannomas commonly present as a painless swelling in the neck, mostly in middle-aged females.

  • Contrast computed tomography and magnetic resonance images can guide the diagnosis as well as surgery.

  • Fine needle aspiration cytology with cellular smears is a cost-effective diagnostic tool for superficial lesions.

  • Complete enucleation with preservation of nerve of origin is the preferred treatment modality, with negligible recurrence.

  • Postoperative nerve palsy may be seen if the nerve of origin is not adequately identified or inaccessible.

Actinomycosis of the nasal cavity
Kyung Seok Park, Dong Hoon Lee, Sang Chul Lim
10.1016/j.bjorl.2021.05.003
Highlights

  • Actinomycosis of the nasal cavity is very rare.

  • Actinomycosis of the nasal cavity should be suspected when a patient with chronic sinusitis does not respond to medical therapy.

  • Nasal actinomycosis can be sufficiently treated with antibiotics and endoscopic surgery.

Biopsy of the olfactory epithelium from the superior nasal septum: is it possible to obtain neurons without damaging olfaction?
Ellen Cristine Duarte Garcia, Lucas de Almeida Luz, Lucas Kanieski Anzolin, José Lucas Barbosa, Richard L. Doty, Fábio de Rezende Pinna, Richard Louis Voegels, Marco Aurélio Fornazieri
10.1016/j.bjorl.2021.05.008
Highlights

  • Olfactory biopsies from the superior part of the nasal septum did not significantly affect smell capacity.

  • These biopsies obtain high rates of olfactory neurons.

  • The described procedure also provides olfactory epithelium proper for morphological analysis.

Respiratory sleep disorders, nasal obstruction and enuresis in children with non-syndromic Pierre Robin sequence
Fábio Luiz Banhara, Inge Elly Kiemle Trindade, Ivy Kiemle Trindade-Suedam, Marilyse de Bragança Lopes Fernandes, Sergio Henrique Kiemle Trindade
10.1016/j.bjorl.2021.05.002
Highlights

  • There was a correlation between the presence of nasal obstruction and obstructive sleep apnea symptoms.

  • The prevalence of excessive daytime sleepiness, nasal obstruction and enuresis did not differ from those found in the general pediatric population.

  • A family history of enuresis, younger age and a positive score on the “dysfunctional voiding scoring system” were associated with a higher prevalence of enuresis.

  • The presence of non-syndromic Pierre Robin sequence, obstructive sleep apnea symptoms and nasal obstruction were not risk factors for the occurrence of enuresis in the studied population.

Highlights

  • The long-term outcomes of posterior nasal neurectomy in patients with allergic rhinitis.

  • A RCT comparing the clinical efficacy of posterior nasal neurectomy with or without pharyngeal neurectomy.

  • Posterior nasal neurectomy combined with pharyngeal neurectomy for allergic rhinitis patients with chronic cough.

10.1016/j.bjorl.2021.05.007
Highlights

  • History taking plays an essential part in evaluating patients with dizziness.

  • The algorithm of the SAQ-1 had been developed based on timing-trigger approach.

  • The SAQ-1 might be used to triage the cause of dizziness of outpatients.
