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
10.1016/j.bjorl.2021.11.001
Highlights

  • 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.

Phoniatric evaluation: relationships between a set of tests and academic difficulties
Carolina Christofani Sian Kencis, Beatriz Cavalcanti de A.C. Novaes
10.1016/j.bjorl.2021.10.004
Highlights

  • Relationship between tests used in the phoniatric assessment and the complaint of academic difficulties.

  • Reading, text comprehension and dictation assessment: statistically significant correlation.

  • Allows prioritizing evidence that may be more related to the complaint.

  • It does not replace a complete phoniatric assessment.

Critical analysis of moderate and severe retractions in the pars tensa and pars flaccida of the tympanic membrane
Inesângela Canali, Letícia Petersen Schmidt Rosito, Vittoria Dreher Longo, Sady Selaimen da Costa
10.1016/j.bjorl.2021.10.005
Highlights

  • The literature is scarce in demonstrating the correlation between the degree of severity of retractions and the degree of hearing loss.

  • To analyse the differences in the location, the severity, and the air-bone gap of moderate and severe tympanic membrane retractions.

  • After a global analysis of the behavior these retractions, we observed the need for classifications that evaluate them globally.

  • Identification of these gaps in literature is relevant so that the focus may be shifted on these topics and proper studies may be implemented.

Prognostic role of neutrophil lymphocyte ratio and mean platelet volume in Bell’s palsy: Comparison of diabetic and non-diabetic patients
Serhat İnan, Sabuhi Jafarov
10.1016/j.bjorl.2021.10.003
Highlights

  • NLR is a valuable prognostic indicator for diabetic and non-diabetic patients with BP.

  • NLR is significantly higher in the nonDM-BP and DM-BP groups than in healthy controls.

  • A high NLR is associated with higher stage HBS before treatment.

  • MPV is not significantly different in diabetic and non-diabetic BP patients.

  • The recovery rate according to the HBS was 90% in BP, and not affected by diabetes.

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
10.1016/j.bjorl.2021.11.002
Highlights

  • 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.
