Upper airway modifications after weight loss: a systematic review
Carolina Ferraz de Paula Soares, Michel Burihan Cahali
10.1016/j.bjorl.2022.10.054
Highlights

  • 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
10.1016/j.bjorl.2022.10.052
Highlights

  • 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
10.1016/j.bjorl.2022.10.053
Highlights

  • 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

Investigation of coronavirus anxiety, health anxiety, and anxiety symptom levels in vertigo patients during COVID-19 pandemic
Mustafa Altintaş, Süleyman Korkut
10.1016/j.bjorl.2022.11.003
Highlights

  • The COVID-19 pandemic has increased the rate of vertigo and exacerbated it.

  • Health anxiety levels are higher in vertigo patients.

  • There is a causal/trigger relationship between the current pandemic and coronavirus anxiety.

  • Vertigo patients have a high rate of anxiety disorder.

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
10.1016/j.bjorl.2022.10.051
Highlights

  • 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
10.1016/j.bjorl.2022.10.050
Highlights

  • 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.

CD45RO+TILs: cellular biomarkers for larynx squamous cell carcinoma outcome
Yousef Mohammadi, Simin Ahmadvand, Maryam Mirtalebi, Mohammad Javad Ashraf, Bijan Khademi, Abbas Ghaderi
10.1016/j.bjorl.2022.09.007
Highlights

  • TILs may control tumor or delay the acquiring of aggressive phenotypes.

  • Higher number of TILs in primary tumor tissues are associated with favorable prognosis.

  • Higher number of CD45RO+TILs may be an indicator of efficient anti-tumor immune responses.

  • CD45RO+ cells are a valuable biomarker for predicting prognosis of larynx SCC patients.
