Three-dimensional cell culture for the study of nasal polyps
Carolina Nunes França, André Luis Lacerda Bachi, Eduardo Macoto Kosugi, Rogério Pezato, Gláucia Maria Machado Santelli, Jônatas Bussador do Amaral

  • Cells in a 3D dimensional environment are more similar to in vivo than a monolayer.

  • In 3D environment the cells remained differentiated for a longer time.

  • Nasal polyp spheroids can be used to understand CRSwNP.

Changes in olfaction and taste in patients hospitalized for COVID-19 and their relationship to patient evolution during hospitalization
Pedro Antônio O.A. Gusmão, José Reinaldo C. Roveda, Ana Sophia M. Leite, Arnaldo S. Leite, Carolina C. Marinho

  • A significant number of the patients had olfaction and taste disorders.

  • Olfaction and taste disorders were markers of better clinical evolution.

  • Predictors of better evolution can help to decongest the health system.

  • Olfactory cleft enlargement and opacification suggests hamartoma.

  • Individualized anatomopathological exam of material from the olfactory cleft.

  • Material examined by experienced pathologist.

  • Almost half of the patients with Nasal Polyps have hamartomas.

Comparing CPAP masks during initial titration for Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome: one-year experience
Adriane Iurck Zonato, Cíntia Felicio Adriano Rosa, Luciana Oliveira, Lia Bittencourt

  • Little attention has been paid to the effect of different mask styles on the effectiveness of PAP titration.

  • Recent advancements in mask designs provide better mask fit and more choices for patients, which may provide more positive CPAP experiences.

  • There is a concept that the oronasal mask increases upper airway resistance compared to the nasal masks.

  • The use of nasal or nasal pillow masks should be encouraged by sleep laboratories as the first choice on the CPAP titration night.

Ectopic thymic tissue in subglottis of children: evaluation and management
Yihang Lin, Junyang Li, Lianyan Xue, Peixuan Sun, Qiao He, Youjin Li

  • Subglottic ectopic thymic tissue is rare and unexpected cause of stridor in children.

  • The knowledge of the typical ultrasonographic features can provide a hint to make a definitive diagnosis before surgery.

  • Modified laryngofissure may be an effective approach to removing the subglottic ectopic thymus and reconstructing the intact subglottic mucosa.

Using RSI and RFS scores to differentiate between reflux-related and other causes of chronic laryngitis
Claudia Alessandra Eckley, Rodrigo Tangerina

  • Reflux laryngitis is highly prevalent in the adult population sharing symptoms of laryngeal and pharyngeal inflammation with a number of inflammatory, infectious and traumatic conditions.

  • Diagnosis of Laryngopharyngeal Reflux is challenging and mainly based on suggestive symptoms and videolaryngoscopic signs of inflammation. Objective tests, such as prolonged esophageal ph-metry and impedance-pHmetry, are costly and have low sensitivity.

  • To minimize the subjectivity of clinical diagnosis for Laryngopharyngeal Reflux a number of scores have been proposed, being the most widely used the Reflux Symptom Index (RSI) and the Reflux Finding Score (RFS).

  • The current study used the RSI and the RFS to try to differentiate between the most common causes of inflammatory and traumatic chronic pharyngitis and laryngitis.

The efficacy of corticosteroid after facial nerve neurorrhaphy: a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trial
Prapitphan Charoenlux, Nattawan Utoomprurkporn, Kachorn Seresirikachorn

  • The benefits of corticosteroid after facial nerve neurorrhaphy are questionable.

  • Corticosteroid was not provided benefits after coaptation in complete transection.

  • The benefits were judged by electrophysiology, histology, and functional recovery.

  • Cauterization of the Gerbils’ auditory tube not always induce cholesteatoma formation.

  • Gerbils’ models of cholesteatoma may differ from each other and those seen in humans.

  • Gerbils’ external auditory canal obliteration induces cholesteatoma in all cases.
