Complex benign horizontal canal positional vertigo: new perceptual management
Narendra B. Suratwala, Jay N. Suratwala, Madhav V. Bapat

  • The maiden HPE report of HSC pathology improves the understanding of etiology of BPPV.

  • The quick head rotational test using gravity adds the complementation to Dix-Hallpike test and more effective in locating cupololithiasis and anterior arm FFP of HSC.

  • Modified II stage of Semont’s maneuvere using utmost gravity force clears the cupolar deposits more efficiently than concurrent therapies.

  • The proposed protocol in managing HSC BPPV of complex presentation is found to be extremely useful in clinical practice in a busy vertigo clinic.

The link between airway reflux and non-acid reflux in children: a review
Jeyasakthy Saniasiaya, Jeyanthi Kulasegarah

  • Airway reflux denotes complication ensuing extra-esophageal reflux in children.

  • Search for the ultimate panacea to curb reflux amongst children as well as adults remains undiscovered.

  • NAR has come to light ensuing wide use of MII-pH among children.

  • Overzealous usage of anti-reflux medication has led to detrimental effect as anti-reflux medication such as PPI converts AR to NAR.

  • MII-pH has improved our understanding of acid reflux and NAR.

Computed tomography analysis of fascial space involvement demonstrates correlations with laboratory tests, length of hospital stays and admission to the intensive care unit in odontogenic infections
Renata de Jesus da Silva, Raphaella Ayres L. Barbosa, Fabio Kenji Okamura, João Gualberto C. Luz

  • The involvement of primary spaces predominated in disseminated odontogenic infections.

  • Laboratory tests higher values are related to greater involvement of fascial spaces.

  • Greater hospitalization stays are related to greater involvement of fascial spaces.

  • Intensive care unit admission is related to greater involvement of fascial spaces.

Hearing aid effectiveness on patients with chronic tinnitus and associated hearing loss
Patricia Simonetti, Laura Garcia Vasconcelos, Mara Rocha Gândara, Karina Lezirovitz, Ítalo Roberto Torres de Medeiros, Jeanne Oiticica

  • Amplification restores auditory input and reduce tinnitus annoyance.

  • THI reduction has been considered to be clinically and statistically significant (20 or more points) after 6-months of hearing aids usage.

  • A significant reduction in THI and VAS indicates a significant improvement in tinnitus severity.

  • Minimal masking levels showed statistically significant reduction after 6-months use of HAs, and inverse correlation with duration of tinnitus.

  • THI, HHIA, VAS for tinnitus annoyance and MMLs are interrelated parameters on tinnitus amelioration.

Mônica Claudino Medeiros Honorato, Luiz Felipe Tavares, Henrique de Paula Bedaque, Erika Barioni Mantello, Erika Oliveira de Almeida, Karyna Myrelly Oliveira Bezerra de Figueiredo Ribeiro, Lidiane Maria de Brito Macedo Ferreira

  • Aural fullness and otalgia symptoms are associated with temporomandibular disorders in patients with dizziness.

  • Patients with dizziness and without temporomandibular disorders have a greater impact on quality of life.

  • The most affected quality of life domains are the functional and emotional ones.

Osteolipoma of head and neck – a review
Billy L.K. Wong, Christopher Hogan

  • 80% of the patients with osteolipoma presented with a painless mass which had pre-existed for at least 4-months contrary to a lump associated with a malignant process.

  • Histology consisting of variable mixture of adipose tissue interspersed with lamellar bone, woven bone, cancellous bone, compact bone and osteoblasts is key to confirm the diagnosis of osteolipoma.

  • Osteolipoma should not be confused with other benign tumours with bony element including parosteal lipomas and intraosseous lipomas.

  • Recognising osteolipoma early is important for patient reassurance as well as avoiding unnecessary radical treatment.

The clinical application of head-shaking test combined with head-shaking tilt suppression test in distinguishing between peripheral and central vertigo at bedside vs. examination room
Huiying Sun, Yinping Wang, Hong Jiang, Zhiqiang Gao, Haiyan Wu

  • Combined HST and the HSTS test have a higher specificity than HST alone.

  • Repressible horizontal HSN usually suggests a peripheral vertigo specifically.

  • Findings of the bedside HST + HSTST are consistent with those of VNG.
