Fiberoptic endoscopic evaluation of swallowing and the Brazilian version of the Eating Assessment Tool-10 in resistant hypertensive patients with obstructive sleep apnea
Mariana Pinheiro Brendim, Carla Rocha Muniz, Thalýta Georgia Vieira Borges, Flávia Rodrigues Ferreira, Elizabeth Silaid Muxfeldt

  • Resistant hypertensive with OSA have a high prevalence of deglutition disorders.

  • Changes in the oral phase of swallowing are inferred by FEES in these subjects.

  • Changes in the pharyngeal phase of swallowing are found by FEES in these subjects.

  • The greater severity of dysphagia is associated with higher EAT-10 scores.

  • The cutoff score for EAT-10 for screening of dysphagia is ≥1 in these subjects.

Three-dimensional image study of accelerated maxillary expansion in oral breathing kids
Fauze Ramez Badreddine, Lucia Hatsue Yamamoto, Andre Besen, Daniela Pimentel Machado Renófio Hoppe, Reginaldo Raimundo Fujita, Mario Cappellette Junior

  • Rapid maxillary expansion can change the shape and physiology of the nose.

  • The soft tissues of the nose are fundamental for maintenance and stability of the nasal breathing pattern.

  • Soft tissues are directly related to the nasal valves.

A systematic review of smartphone applications and devices for obstructive sleep apnea
Peter M. Baptista, Fabricio Martin, Harry Ross, Carlos O’Connor Reina, Guillermo Plaza, Manuele Casale

  • This paper provides a scientific literature review of consumer-direct apps and devices for the diagnosis, monitoring, and treatment of SDB.

  • Sleep apnea apps that had published literature or apps that could be used in a clinical setting were included in this systematic review.

  • Ten smartphone apps met the inclusion criteria.

  • The use of new technologies for diagnosis, monitoring and treatment of SDB hold great promise but remains in the early stages of development.

Is there a relationship between tonsil volume and the success of pharyngeal surgery among adult patients with obstructive sleep apnea?
Silvia Matarredona-Quiles, Marina Carrasco-Llatas, Paula Martínez-Ruíz de Apodaca, Noelia Ortega-Beltrá, José Dalmau-Galofre

  • A positive correlation exists between tonsil grade and volume.

  • Tonsil volume and surgical success were correlated.

  • The volume of the tonsils of those patients whose surgery was deemed a success was greater (9.2 cm3 vs. 5.5 cm3).

  • A tonsil volume greater than 6.5 cm3 was linked to success during pharyngeal surgery.

Feasibility of a snowball sampling survey to study active surveillance for thyroid microcarcinoma treatment among endocrinologists and surgeons of Brazil
Isabela Matos da Silva, Taísa Quécia da Silva Nogueira, Deborah Nogueira Couto, Paula Cristina Tanajura Meira Lima, Natália Sampaio Carvalho Bonfim, Izadora Gomes Veiga de Sousa, Ana Clara Tosta Telles, Fábio Hecht, Nina Ramalho Alkmim, Gustavo Cancela e Penna, Carolina Ferraz, Eduardo Tomimori, Helton Estrela Ramos

  • Active surveillance for low risk papillary microcarcinoma is a strategy to prevent excessive early treatment, among other advantages.

  • Snowball sampling strategy is feasible and able in reaching hard-to-reach groups, such as doctors of different specialties, in different work environments or in large countries.

  • In Brazil, total thyroidectomy seems to be the most indicated treatment for thyroid papillary microcarcinoma.

Parotidectomy and neck dissection in locally advanced and relapsed cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck region
Giulianno Molina de Melo, Luiz Henrique Guilherme, Marcel das Neves Palumbo, Marcello Rosano, Murilo Catafesta das Neves, Fabiano Mesquita Callegari, Marcio Abrahao, Onivaldo Cervantes

  • Parotidectomy and neck dissection in locally advanced (laCSCC) and relapsed Cutaneous Squamous Cell Carcinoma (reCSCC) were evaluated.

  • Worst survivals were observed in T4, positive P stage and positive parotid metastasis.

  • The parotid metastasis was present in 50% with OR = 37.6 to evolve into positive neck metastasis.

  • The occult, neck metastasis and neck extracapsular spread rate was 13.5%, 51.3% and 37.8%.

  • We propose partial for P0 or total parotidectomy for P1-3 and neck dissection to all these patients.

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.

Correlation between PET-CT and ct in the staging after the treatment of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma
Fernando García-Curdi, Yolanda Lois-Ortega, Ana Muniesa-del Campo, Amaranta McGee-Laso, José Miguel Sebastián-Cortés, Héctor Vallés-Varela, Julio José Lambea-Sorrosal

  • Head and neck cancer recurs more frequently in the first 2–3 years after treatment.

  • Early detection of recurrence events is important.

  • Diagnostic imaging methods are an indispensable tool in the follow up of the disease.

  • The post-treatment neck study is controversial.
