  • Diagnosis and Treatment of Otitis Media With Effusion: CODEPEH
           Recommendations
    • Abstract: Publication date: January–February 2019Source: Acta Otorrinolaringologica (English Edition), Volume 70, Issue 1Author(s): Faustino Núñez-Batalla, Carmen Jáudenes-Casaubón, Jose Miguel Sequí-Canet, Ana Vivanco-Allende, Jose Zubicaray-UgartecheAbstractThe incidence and the prevalence rates of otitis media with effusion (OME) are high. However, there is evidence that only a minority of professionals follow the recommendations provided in clinical practice guidelines. For the purpose of improving diagnosis and treatment of OME in children to prevent and/or reduce its impact on children's development, the Commission for the Early Detection of Deafness (CODEPEH) has deeply reviewed the scientific literature on this field and has drafted a document of recommendations for a correct clinical reaction to of OME, including diagnosis and medical and surgical treatment methodology. Among others, medication, in particular antibiotics and corticoids, should not be prescribed and 3 months of watchful waiting should be the first adopted measure. If OME persists, an ENT doctor should assess the possibility of surgical treatment. The impact of OME in cases of children with a comorbidity is higher, so it requires immediate reaction, without watchful waiting.ResumenLa incidencia y prevalencia de la otitis media secretora infantil (OMS) son elevadas, sin embargo, existen evidencias de que solo una minoría de profesionales sigue las recomendaciones de las guías para su manejo clínico. Con objeto de mejorar el diagnóstico y el tratamiento de la OMS, para prevenir y/o reducir sus consecuencias sobre el desarrollo del niño, la Comisión para la Detección Precoz de la Hipoacusia (CODEPEH) ha realizado una amplia revisión de la literatura científica sobre la materia y ha elaborado un documento de recomendaciones para una correcta actitud clínica ante la OMS, abordando métodos diagnósticos y tratamiento médico y quirúrgico. Entre otros, no usar ninguna medicación, especialmente corticoides y antibióticos, siendo la espera vigilada la primera medida a tomar durante 3 meses. Si persiste la OMS, el otorrinolaringólogo valorará el tratamiento quirúrgico. En niños que presentan comorbilidades de diversa entidad, el impacto de la OMS es superior por lo que hay que actuar de forma inmediata, sin espera vigilada.

There is little information on prevalence, considering that Latin American is the most affected region in the world.ObjectiveTo determine the prevalence of microtia, considering the different ethnical structure of the population.MethodsA retrospective analysis was performed of the clinical reports of newborn infants (public hospitals) in three different regions.ResultsThe incidence of CAA in Argentina was 1 case per 7500 new births (i.e. 1.3/10,000). Marked differences were found per geographical area. The means were calculated per year by bilateral parametric estimation, according to the ethnical origins of the population. In the Caucasoid area: 02.47/10,000 (±1.2), in the Mestizo area: 03.99/10,000 (±0.0) and finally in the Amerindian area: 20.93/10,000 (±0.1).ConclusionThis study shows different incidences according to the demographic features of the population from 1.90/10,000 to 20.9/10,000. This data indicates that CAA is associated with a genetic problem (ethnic differences).ResumenIntroducciónLa atresia aural congénita (AAC) o microtia es una malformación que produce problemas funcionales y estéticos. Existe falta de información de prevalencia en Argentina, teniendo en cuenta además que Latinoamérica es la región más afectada del mundo.ObjetivoDeterminar la prevalencia de microtia, teniendo en cuenta la estructura étnica de la población según las regiones.MétodosAnálisis retrospectivo de historias clínicas en hospitales públicos de recién nacidos en diferentes zonas del país.ResultadosLa prevalencia de atresia en Argentina fue de uno de cada 7.500 recién nacidos (1,3/10.000). Se encontraron marcadas diferencias de acuerdo al área geográfica. En el área caucásica: 2,47/10.000 (± 1,2), en el área mestiza: 3,99/10.000 (± 0) y en el área amerindia: 20,93/10.000 (± 0,1).ConclusiónEl estudio muestra una diferente incidencia con arreglo a las características demográficas de la población, de entre 1,90/10.000 y 20,9/10.000. Estos datos permitirían asociar la atresia con problemas genéticos (origen étnico).
       
  • Multi-disciplinary clinical protocol for the diagnosis of bulbar

    • Abstract: Publication date: January–February 2019Source: Acta Otorrinolaringologica (English Edition), Volume 70, Issue 1Author(s): Rita Chiaramonte, Carmela Di Luciano, Ignazio Chiaramonte, Agostino Serra, Marco BonfiglioAbstractIntroduction and objectivesThe objective of this study was to examine the role of different specialists in the diagnosis of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), to understand changes in verbal expression and phonation, respiratory dynamics and swallowing that occurred rapidly over a short period of time.Materials and methods22 patients with bulbar ALS were submitted for voice assessment, ENT evaluation, Multi-Dimensional Voice Program (MDVP), spectrogram, electroglottography, fiberoptic endoscopic evaluation of swallowing.ResultsIn the early stage of the disease, the oral tract and velopharyngeal port were involved. Three months after the initial symptoms, most of the patients presented hoarseness, breathy voice, dysarthria, pitch modulation problems and difficulties in pronunciation of explosive, velar and lingual consonants. Values of MDVP were altered. Spectrogram showed an additional formant, due to nasal resonance. Electroglottography showed periodic oscillation of the vocal folds only during short vocal cycle. Swallowing was characterized by weakness and incoordination of oro-pharyngeal muscles with penetration or aspiration.ConclusionsA specific multidisciplinary clinical protocol was designed to report vocal parameters and swallowing disorders that changed more quickly in bulbar ALS patients. Furthermore, the patients were stratified according to involvement of pharyngeal structures, and severity index.ResumenIntroducción y objetivosEl objetivo de este estudio fue examinar la función de los diferentes especialistas en el diagnóstico de la esclerosis lateral amiotrófica (ELA), para comprender quèc) cambios se produjeron en cuanto a expresión verbal, dinámica fonatoria y respiratoria, y deglución, en un breve periodo de tiempo.Materiales y mèc)todosSe sometió a 22 pacientes con ELA bulbar a evaluación de la voz, examen ORL, programa de voz multi-dimensional (MDVP), espectrograma, electroglotografía y evaluación de la deglución mediante endoscopía de fibra óptica.ResultadosEn la etapa temprana de la enfermedad, el tracto oral y el cierre velofaríngeo se vieron comprometidos. Transcurridos 3 meses de los síntomas iniciales, la mayoría de los pacientes presentó ronquera, voz entrecortada, disartria, problemas de modulación de la afinación y dificultades de pronunciación de las consonantes oclusivas, velares y linguales. Los valores del MDVP se vieron alterados. El espectrograma reflejó un formante adicional, debido a la resonancia nasal. La electroglotografía mostró una oscilación periódica de las cuerdas vocales únicamente durante el ciclo vocal corto. La deglución se vio caracterizada por debilidad y descoordinación de los músculos orofaríngeos, con penetración o aspiración.ConclusionesSe diseñó un protocolo clínico multidisciplinar específico para reportar los parámetros vocales y los trastornos deglutorios que experimentan un cambio más rápido en los pacientes con ELA bulbar. Además, se estratificaron los pacientes con arreglo al compromiso de las estructuras faríngeas y el índice de gravedad.
       
  • Predictive Value of EGFR-PI3K-pAKT-mTOR-pS6 Pathway in Sinonasal Squamous
           Cell Carcinomas
    • Abstract: Publication date: January–February 2019Source: Acta Otorrinolaringologica (English Edition), Volume 70, Issue 1Author(s): María Gabriela Muñoz-Cordero, Fernando López, Cristina García-Inclán, Alejandro López-Hernández, Sira Potes-Ares, Laura Fernández-Vañes, José Luis Llorente, Mario HermsenAbstractBackground and objectivesWe have previously indicated that EGFR has a role in carcinogenesis in a subgroup of sinonasal squamous cell carcinomas (SNSCC). In addition, EGFR activates 2 of the most important intracellular signalling pathways: PI3K/pAKT/mTOR/pS6 and MAP pathway kinases. The objective of this study was to evaluate the involvement of the EGFR/PI3K/pAKT/mTOR/pS6 pathway and its relationship with clinical–pathological parameters and follow-up of sinonasal squamous cell carcinoma.Material and methodsThe immunohistochemical expression of different components of the PI3K/AKT/mTOR/pS6 pathway and its relationship with various clinical-pathological parameters was studied in a series of 54 patients with SNSCC.ResultsLoss of PTEN expression was observed in 33/54 cases (61%) and pAKT, mTOR and pS6 pre-expression was observed in 19/54 cases (35%), 8/54 cases (15%), and 47/54 cases (87%), respectively. Loss of PTEN expression was related to intracranial invasion and development of regional metastases (P=.005). Overexpression of pS6 was associated with a decrease in survival (P=.008), presence of local recurrences (P=.055), and worsening of overall prognosis (P=.007). No significant relationships were observed between pAKT and mTOR expression and the clinicopathological parameters studied.ConclusionsAlterations in the expression of EGFR/PI3K/pAKT/mTOR/pS6 pathway components are common in a subgroup of SNSCC. This study reveals that the absence of pS6 overexpression is associated with better clinical outcomes. Therefore, pS6 expression could be considered as an unfavourable prognostic marker.ResumenAntecedentes y objetivosEn estudios previos hemos indicado que EGFR tiene un papel en la carcinogénesis en un subgrupo de carcinomas epidermoides nasosinusales (CENS). Además, EGFR activa a 2 de las más importantes vías de señalización intracelular como son la PI3K/pAKT/mTOR/pS6 y la vía MAP-cinasas. El objetivo de este estudio fue evaluar la participación de la ruta de EGFR/PI3K/pAKT/mTOR/pS6 y su relación con parámetros clínico-patológicos y de seguimiento de los CENS.Material y métodosLa expresión proteica de PTEN, pAKT, mTOR y pS6 fue analizada mediante inmunohistoquímica en 54 CENS. Los resultados fueron relacionados con diversos parámetros clínico-patológicos y la supervivencia.ResultadosLa pérdida de expresión de PTEN se observó en 33/54 casos (61%) y la sobreexpresión de pAKT, mTOR y pS6 se observó en 19/54 casos (35%), 8/54 casos (15%) y 47/54 casos (87%), respectivamente. La pérdida de expresión de PTEN se relacionó con la invasión intracraneal y el desarrollo de metástasis regionales (p = 0,005). La ausencia de sobreexpresión de pS6 se relacionó con una supervivencia específica (p = 0,008) y global (p = 0,007) más favorables y la ausencia de recidivas locales (p = 0,055). No se observaron relaciones significativas entre la expresión de pAKT y mTOR y los parámetros clínico-patológicos estudiados.ConclusionesLas alteraciones en la expresión de los componentes de la vía EGFR/PI3K/pAKT/mTOR/pS6 son frecuentes en un subgrupo de CENS. Este estudio revela que la ausencia de sobreexpresión de pS6 se relaciona con mejores resultados clínicos, por lo que la expresión pS6 podría considerarse como un marcador pronóstico.

  • Salvage Surgery in the Treatment of Local Recurrences of Nasopharyngeal
           Carcinomas
    • Abstract: Publication date: November–December 2018Source: Acta Otorrinolaringologica (English Edition), Volume 69, Issue 6Author(s): María Cecilia Salom, Fernando López, Esteban Pacheco, Gabriela Muñoz, Patricia García-Cabo, Laura Fernández, Vanessa Suárez, José Luis LlorenteAbstractIntroduction and ObjectivesChemoradiotherapy is the treatment of choice for nasopharyngeal carcinoma. Local recurrences are one of the leading causes of death in these patients, and surgical salvage the treatment of choice. Our goal was to evaluate and compare the results of salvage surgery in the treatment of local recurrence of nasopharyngeal carcinomas comparing endoscopic to open approaches.MethodsTwenty patients with local recurrence of nasopharyngeal carcinomas underwent surgery: 12 patients underwent open surgery and 8 endoscopic endonasal transpterygoid nasopharyngectomy. One patient was classified as rT1, three as rT2, two as rT3, and six as rT4 in the group of open approaches; in the endoscopic series, two patients were rT1, five rT2 and one rT3.ResultsIn 3 patients (25%) operated by an open approach (one rT4, one rT3 and one rT2) a complete gross resection was not achieved. Gross total resection was achieved in patients operated by endoscopic surgery. The complication rate in the group operated by an open approach was 92% (five minor complications, five moderate complications, and one serious complication) and in the group that underwent endoscopic surgery all patients had some complication (seven had minor complications and one patient developed a severe complication). Survival at 3 and 5 years was 53% and 42% with the open approach and 100% and 50% with the endoscopic approach, respectively.ConclusionsEndoscopic approaches decrease the morbidity associated with open approaches and allow for favourable oncological control.ResumenIntroducción y ObjetivosLa quimiorradioterapia es el tratamiento de elección del carcinoma de nasofaringe. Las recurrencias locales son una de las principales causas de mortalidad en estos pacientes: el rescate quirúrgico o la reirradiación son el tratamiento de elección, según la disponibilidad. El objetivo fue evaluar y comparar los resultados de la cirugía de rescate en el tratamiento de las recidivas locales de los carcinomas nasofaríngeos mediante abordajes abiertos vs. endoscópicos.MétodosVeinte pacientes con recidivas locales de carcinomas nasofaríngeos fueron intervenidos quirúrgicamente: 12 pacientes fueron intervenidos mediante cirugía abierta y 8 mediante un abordaje endoscópico endonasal transpterigoideo. Un paciente fue estadiado como rT1; 3 como rT2; 2 como rT3 y 6 como rT4 en el grupo de abordajes abiertos; en la serie endoscópica, 2 pacientes fueron rT1, 5 fueron rT2 y uno fue rT3.ResultadosEn 3 de los pacientes (25%) intervenidos mediante cirugía abierta (un rT4, un rT3 y un rT2) no se logró una resección macroscópica completa). En el grupo endoscópico la resección fue completa en todos los pacientes. La tasa de complicaciones en el grupo intervenido mediante abordajes abiertos fue del 92% (5 complicaciones leves, 5 complicaciones moderadas y una complicación grave) y en el grupo intervenido mediante endoscopia fue del 100% (7 sufrieron complicaciones leves y un paciente una complicación grave). La supervivencia a los 3 y 5 años fue del 53 y del 42% en el abordaje abierto y del 100 y del 75% en el abordaje endoscópico, respectivamente.ConclusionesLos abordajes endoscópicos disminuyen la morbilidad asociada a los abordajes abiertos y permiten obtener un control oncológico favorable.

Rarer aetiologies include certain neurological, psychiatric and metabolic injuries.TargetThe aim of this paper was to check the sort of olfactory disorders found in people who have suffered a brain injury, excluding: cranial traumas, psychiatric diseases, epilepsy, Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease, and synaesthesia.Material and MethodsA descriptive study based on 61 patients with diagnoses of various neurological injuries, which were tested by BAST-24 olfactometer. The results were compared with those of a control group (n=120).ResultsThe results show major impairment in these patients’ olfactory sense. The neurological injury patients were able to detect from 60% to 77% of the odours, while the control group were able to detect between 98% and 100%. The neurological patients were able, at best, to identify, 11%–32% of the odours correctly, while the control group were able to correctly detect between 59% and 75%. The differences between odour detection and correct identification were statistically significant (P
