Wilma T. Anselmo-Lima, Fabrizio R. Romano, Edwin Tamashiro, Renato Roithmann, Vanessa R.P. Dinarte, Otavio B. Piltcher, Marcel M. Miyake, Marco A. Fornazieri, ... Fabiana C.P. Valera
Highlights

  • This is the 2024 updated Brazilian Guideline for Biologicals in CRSwNP.

  • Our understanding of Biologics has increased.

  • A comprehensive score system for the indication of biologics is proposed.

  • The higher the score, the stronger the indication for biologics.

  • This will help ENT physicians in selecting the appropriated patients.

Task force of the Brazilian Society of Otology — evaluation and management of peripheral facial palsy
Henrique Furlan Pauna, Vagner Antonio Rodrigues Silva, Joel Lavinsky, Miguel Angelo Hyppolito, Melissa Ferreira Vianna, Mariana de Carvalho Leal Gouveia, Rafael da Costa Monsanto, José Fernando Polanski, ... Arthur Menino Castilho
Highlights

  • This is an evidence-based review on the recommendations for the diagnosis and treatment of Peripheral Facial Palsy (PFP).

  • The diagnosis of PFP is based on epidemiological data, medical history, and physical examination.

  • As the nerve regenerate, neural desynchronization and muscle depolarization occurs at different intervals.

  • Surgical decompression of the facial nerve is suggested when electrophysiologic testing shows degeneration greater than 90%.

Thermal variation in human temporal bone using rigid endoscope
Thales Xavit Souza e Silva, Aline Bruno Figueiredo Nicolau, Marcos Luiz Antunes
Highlights

  • Endoscopes can generate thermal injury and tissue functional impairment.

  • Hyperthermia can influence the responses both cochlear nerve and the brainstem.

  • Caliber and angulation of the endoscope influences the thermal variation.

  • Type and intensity of the light source influences the thermal variation.

  • Large-caliber endoscopes with xenon or halogen light generate more heat.

Oral and oropharyngeal mucosal lesions: clinical-epidemiological study of patients attended at a reference center for infectious diseases
Clarissa Souza Mota Reis, João Gustavo Corrêa Reis, Fátima Conceição-Silva, Cláudia Maria Valete
Highlights

  • Oral mucosal lesions of infectious diseases and neoplasms were the most frequent.

  • Clinical-epidemiological characteristics of oral manifestations are often similar.

  • Systematic oral and oropharyngeal examination is essential for differential diagnosis.

  • Multidisciplinary teams in medical routine can improve early diagnosis.

  • Standardized medical records can provide tools for differential diagnosis.

Additional cognitive behavior therapy for persistent postural-perceptual dizziness: a meta-analysis
Jialin Zang, Mohan Zheng, Hongyuan Chu, Xu Yang
Highlights

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) has been widely used in patients with mild to moderate anxiety and depression.

  • Additional CBT combined with conventional therapy may offer additional improvement to patients with PPPD.

  • CBT could promote the improvement of symptoms and functional recovery, thereby producing therapeutic effects.

Anlotinib suppressed tumor cell proliferation and migration in hypopharyngeal carcinoma
Hao Song, Qing Song, Xiangkun Zhao, Yuteng Yang, Yakui Mou, Yumei Li, Xicheng Song
Highlights

  • Anlotinib inhibits the proliferation of Fadu cells in hypopharyngeal carcinoma.

  • Anlotinib blocks G2/M and promotes apoptosis in the hypopharyngeal cancer cell cycle.

  • Anlotinib puts Fadu cells in a hypoxic state, which in turn inhibits cell proliferation.

Evaluation of inner ear damage by mastoid drilling with measurement of serum prestin (SLC26A5) levels
Ayca Baskadem Yilmazer, Onur Tanrısever, Maide Hacer Alagoz, Rasim Yilmazer, Ayse Enise Goker, Belgin Tutar, Yavuz Uyar
Highlights

  • Mastoid drilling is not related to a significant inner ear injury.

  • Suction and ossicular manipulation trauma can increase serum prestin levels.

  • Suction trauma can cause sensorineural hearing loss at 2000 and 4000 Hz.

  • Ossicular manipulation trauma can cause sensorineural hearing loss at 2000 and 4000 Hz.

Nasal polyps show decreased mucociliary transport despite vigorous ciliary beating
Thi Nga Nguyen, Yuma Koga, Tetsuro Wakasugi, Takuro Kitamura, Hideaki Suzuki
Highlights

  • Mucociliary transport velocity of nasal polyps was lower than that of turbinates.

  • Ciliary beat frequency did not differ between the two tissues.

  • Expression of Planar Cell Polarity (PCP) proteins was decreased in nasal polyps.

  • Lowered mucociliary transport in nasal polyps may be due to disarranged PCP.
