The link between airway reflux and non-acid reflux in children: a review
Jeyasakthy Saniasiaya, Jeyanthi Kulasegarah
10.1016/j.bjorl.2022.05.002
Highlights

  • Airway reflux, a form of extra-esophageal reflux, has been linked to countless respiratory pathologies amongst children.

  • Review of the literature revealed that non-acid reflux is the culprit behind airway reflux and other myriads of extra-esophageal manifestations in children.

  • Non-acid reflux explains the exasperation faced by numerous otorhinolaryngologists following the futile outcome of devout usage of acid suppression in children to treat airway reflux.

  • A recent surge in the implementation of multichannel intraluminal impedance monitoring amongst children has enabled the discovery of non-acid reflux.

  • Multicentre international studies with a standardized protocol could improve scientific knowledge in managing non-acid reflux in airway reflux amongst children.

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 Lima Barbosa, Fabio Kenji Okamura, João Gualberto Cerqueira Luz
10.1016/j.bjorl.2022.04.003
Highlights

  • 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.

Osteolipoma of head and neck – a review
Billy L.K. Wong, Christopher Hogan
10.1016/j.bjorl.2022.04.002
Highlights

  • 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.

Early postoperative endoscopic score can predict the long-term endoscopic outcomes in eosinophilic chronic rhinosinusitis (ECRS) patients
Kosuke Akiyama, Yasushi Samukawa, Hiroshi Hoshikawa
10.1016/j.bjorl.2021.12.003
Highlights

  • Eosinophilic chronic rhinosinusitis is a poor prognosis and refractory disease.

  • We assessed the long-term endoscopic outcomes after surgery and following treatment.

  • Early postoperative endoscopic findings are a predictive factor for the later outcomes.

  • Higher endoscopic score of 3 months post operation indicates poor long-term prognosis.

Endoscopic versus microscopic ossiculoplasty: Does the functional outcome vary according to the type of osciculoplasty?
Onur Celik, Burak Ulkumen
10.1016/j.bjorl.2022.02.003
Highlights

  • There are very few studies on the functional success of the endoscopic ossiculoplasty.

  • Incus interposition and bone cement utilization were evaluated unlike the previous studies.

  • Endoscopic approach in various ossiculoplasties is reliable as the microscopic one.

  • Type of ossiculoplasty has no effect on the functional success of either approach.

Potential effects of lowering the threshold of statistical significance in the field of chronic rhinosinusitis – A meta-research on published randomized controlled trials over last decade
Pooja Thakur, Vivek Jha
10.1016/j.bjorl.2021.11.004
Highlights

  • p-value statistic has multiple demerits and limitations.

  • Lowering the p-value threshold from 0.05 to 0.005 would heavily alter the interpretation of RCTs in the last ten years.

  • Trial characteristics such as funding, single or multicentered status, or registration status, were not found contributing to reporting of a significant p-value.

  • Scientific literature needs to do away with over-reliance on p-value and there is a requirement for alternate methods of interpretation of results.

Relationship of the anterior ethmoid sinus to the lacrimal sac: a computed tomography study
Beatriz de Costa Remor, Leonardo Balsalobre, Simone Haber Duellberg Von Faber Bison, Maria Helena Salgado Delamain Pupo Nogueira, Ana Taíse de Oliveira Meurer, David Caetano Bastos, Aldo Cassol Stamm
10.1016/j.bjorl.2022.02.002
Highlights

  • The agger nasi is medial to the lacrimal sac in most patients.

  • The agger nasi can be considered an anatomical key point in endoscopic DCR.

  • The right and left sides of each patient have similar anatomy.

Abdulhalim Aysel, Berrak Karatan, Uğurtan Ergün, Togay Müderris
10.1016/j.bjorl.2022.01.008
Highlights

  • Prominent ear deformity is the most common congenital head and neck deformity.

  • Various techniques have been described for prominent ear correction.

  • Modified bilateral fasciaperichondrial flap technique is used with low complications.

Nutritional and immunological parameters as prognostic factors in patients with advanced oral cancer
Lorenzo Fernandes Moça Trevisani, Isabelle Fernandes Kulcsar, Ana Kober Nogueira Leite, Marco Aurélio Vamondes Kulcsar, Graziele Aparecida Simões Lima, Rogerio Aparecido Dedivitis, Luiz Paulo Kowalski, Leandro Luongo Matos
10.1016/j.bjorl.2021.11.003
Highlights

  • Patients with oral SCC present significant weight loss and immune compromise.

  • Increased values of RDW and high weight loss were risk factors for lower survival.

  • Patients undergoing treatment must receive a complete nutritional evaluation.

  • Nutritional intervention can be effective, preventing nutritional deterioration.

Sinonasal/basicranial myxofibrosarcoma: a report of 6 surgical cases combined with a literature review
Hongbing Li, Huan Wang, Dehui Wang
10.1016/j.bjorl.2022.02.001
Highlights

  • So far surgery is the mainstay of treatment for sinonasal/basicranial MFS.

  • Negative surgical margin and re-excision for relapsed cases may be recommended to rhinologists.

  • Early diagnosis and better patient compliance may improve the prognosis.
