Percutaneous Vocal Fold Lateralization in children — a case series of a Brazilian tertiary pediatric hospital (pediatric vocal fold lateralization cases in a Brazilian hospital)
Bárbara Duarte Salgueiro, Neemias Santos Carneiro, Rita Carolina Pozzer Krumenauer Padoin, Renata Loss Drummond, Isabel Saorin Conte, Hemily Izabel Alves Neves, Marcelo Neves Lubianca, José Faibes Lubianca Neto

  • Surgical results showed PVFL as a safe and effective procedure.

  • PVFL may avoid tracheostomy and allow decannulation in children with BVFP.

  • PVFL is promising, as the tracheostomy has significant morbidity.

  • Five of six patients had a favorable clinical evolution, after PVFL.

  • In our series of cases, there were no cases of reversal of vocal fold lateralization.

Thermal variation in human temporal bone using rigid endoscope
Thales Xavit Souza e Silva, Aline Bruno Figueiredo Nicolau, Marcos Luiz Antunes
Braz J Otorhinolaryngol. 2024;90:101381

  • Endoscopes can generate thermal injury and tissue functional impairment.

  • Hyperthermia can influence the responses both cochlear nerve and the brainstem.

  • Caliber and angulation of the endoscope influences the thermal variation.

  • Type and intensity of the light source influences the thermal variation.

  • Large-caliber endoscopes with xenon or halogen light generate more heat.

Task force of the Brazilian Society of Otology — evaluation and management of peripheral facial palsy
Henrique Furlan Pauna, Vagner Antonio Rodrigues Silva, Joel Lavinsky, Miguel Angelo Hyppolito, Melissa Ferreira Vianna, Mariana de Carvalho Leal Gouveia, Rafael da Costa Monsanto, José Fernando Polanski, ... Arthur Menino Castilho
Braz J Otorhinolaryngol. 2024;90:101374

  • This is an evidence-based review on the recommendations for the diagnosis and treatment of Peripheral Facial Palsy (PFP).

  • The diagnosis of PFP is based on epidemiological data, medical history, and physical examination.

  • As the nerve regenerate, neural desynchronization and muscle depolarization occurs at different intervals.

  • Surgical decompression of the facial nerve is suggested when electrophysiologic testing shows degeneration greater than 90%.

Oral and oropharyngeal mucosal lesions: clinical-epidemiological study of patients attended at a reference center for infectious diseases
Clarissa Souza Mota Reis, João Gustavo Corrêa Reis, Fátima Conceição-Silva, Cláudia Maria Valete
Braz J Otorhinolaryngol. 2024;90:101396

  • Oral mucosal lesions of infectious diseases and neoplasms were the most frequent.

  • Clinical-epidemiological characteristics of oral manifestations are often similar.

  • Systematic oral and oropharyngeal examination is essential for differential diagnosis.

  • Multidisciplinary teams in medical routine can improve early diagnosis.

  • Standardized medical records can provide tools for differential diagnosis.

  • Stridor is the predominant symptom of post-extubation laryngitis.

  • Airway endoscopy is needed for a definitive diagnosis.

  • Reflux and previous history of intubation were identified as risk factors.

  • Systemic corticosteroids should be part of the medical treatment.

  • Multidisciplinary approach is advised for post-extubation laryngitis management.
