Treatment outcomes of alternating chemoradiotherapy for nasopharyngeal carcinoma: a single-center safety and efficacy study
Kenzo Ohara, Miki Takahara, Takumi Kumai, Masaaki Yamashina, Kan Kishibe, Akihiro Katada, Tatsuya Hayashi

  • The safety and efficacy of alternating chemoradiotherapy using cisplatin and 5-fluorouracil were retrospectively examined in nasopharyngeal carcinoma patients.

  • The overall comlete response rate was 93% with preserving renal function.

  • The 5-year overall survival and progression-free survival rates were 83.7% and 88.9%, respectively.

  • Treatment compliance, the 5-year overall survival rate and the 5-year overall survival rate are comparable to that of previous reports.

  • Alternating chemoradiotherapy using cisplatin and 5-fluorouracil in nasopharyngeal carcinoma patients was well tolerated with acceptable efficacy.

Subjective Visual Vertical and Vestibular Evoked Myogenic Potential in Meniere's disease
Maristela Mian Ferreira, Karen de Carvalho Lopes, Thaís Alvares de Abreu e Silva Grigol, Maurício Malavasi Ganança, Heloisa Helena Caovilla

  • SVV test evaluates the static otolith system and, cervical and ocular VEMPs, examines the dynamic.

  • SVV, with the bucket method, and cervical and ocular VEMPs, contribute to the assessment of vestibulopathies.

  • SVV and cervical and ocular VEMPs together, are advantageous to assess otolith disorders in Meniere’s disease.

Upper airway modifications after weight loss: a systematic review
Carolina Ferraz de Paula Soares, Michel Burihan Cahali

  • Weight loss promotes an increase in the area of the retropalatal region, especially in the lateral pharyngeal region.

  • There is volumetric reduction of several soft structures of the pharynx, with emphasis on fat and tongue fat deposits.

  • The airway height decreased, moving the hyoid closer to the posterior nasal spine and reducing the distance between hyoid to chin.

  • Few studies with a good level of scientific evidence objectively describe the changes in the airways caused by weight loss.

What does the video head impulse test tell us about post-caloric vestibular recruitment?
R. Mezzalira, R.S.M. Bittar

  • Post caloric recruitment index is the ratio between cold and warm stimulation.

  • Post caloric recruitment index is useful to identify the affected ear separately.

  • Video head impulse test did not prove to be a good predictor of post caloric recruitment.

Effect of perinatal and postnatal thiamine deficiency on auditory pathway of the Wistar-Albino rats
Özer Erdem Gür, Nevreste Didem Sonbay Yılmaz, Nuray Ensari, Rezarta Taga Senirli, Zuleyha Dilek Gulmez, Ozlem Tugce Cilingir Kaya, Serap Sırvancı, Betül Danışman, Narin Derin, Mustafa Deniz Yılmaz

  • Thiamine is very important for both pregnancy and the continuation of pregnancy.

  • Even though ABR is normal, degeneration occurs in IHC even if the thiamine deficiency is compensated with thiamine supplementation in the postnatal period.

  • If the thiamine deficiency continues in the perinatal period also in the postnatal period, significant deterioration in ABR and significant degeneration in IHC occur.

  • If there is no deficiency in the perinatal period, but thiamine deficiency occurs in the postnatal period, there is no degeneration in the hair cells.

  • However, more studies are needed to support this issue

Transnasal endoscopy-guided percutaneous access to the sphenopalatine ganglion for neurostimulation in the treatment of primary headache: operative technique and feasibility
Miguel Soares Tepedino, Pedro Mino Vianna, Carlos Henrique A.B. Baptista, Daniel Lopes Marques Simoes Ferreira, Mariana Mafra Junqueira

  • Cluster headache is a primary trigeminal autonomic cephalalgia.

  • Invasive therapies have been reported and can be medication-sparing.

  • The sphenopalatine ganglion is implicated in autonomic cephalalgias.

  • We describe a new technique for sphenopalatine ganglion neurostimulation.

  • Endoscopy-guided percutaneous access adds precision and should reduce morbidity.

Diagnostic utility of salivary pepsin in laryngopharyngeal reflux: a systematic review and meta-analysis
Wuyang Jing, Wenlong Luo, Lan Lou

  • A selection of recent RCT studies on salivary pepsin diagnosis.

  • 50 ng/mL is the current threshold for high diagnostic efficacy of salivary pepsin.

  • Current salivary pepsin has a low diagnostic efficacy for pepsin.

  • Increasing the diagnostic threshold improves diagnostic efficacy of salivary pepsin.
