      Abstract: Abstract Chronic inflammation in the middle ear may result in functional impairment of the chorda tympani nerve, which carries taste from the anterior two-thirds of the tongue. This may lead to impaired taste sensation. Timely intervention and adequate disease clearance may help the chorda tympani nerve to recover. Gustatory function of 107 patients who underwent Tympanoplasty for Chronic otitis media (mucosal type) was evaluated in a cohort of Indian patients. To compare the preoperative and postoperative gustatory function in these patients taste scores were documented preoperatively, and at 6 weeks and 3 months postoperatively, in an effort to document taste function improvement after disease clearance. The taste scores thus obtained were recorded and analyzed. A significant improvement in taste threshold postoperatively in comparison to the preoperative taste scores (p = 0.001) was found. It was observed that age of the patient and duration of illness have a significant impact on the recovery of taste function. Our study suggests that taste perception improves over a period of time after successful tympanoplasty in patients with chronic otitis media (mucosal type).

  • Rare compound heterozygosity involving dominant and recessive mutations of
           GJB2 gene in an assortative mating hearing impaired Indian family
    • Authors: Amritkumar Pavithra; Jayasankaran Chandru; Justin Margret Jeffrey; N. P. Karthikeyen; C. R. Srikumari Srisailapathy
      Pages: 119 - 125
      Abstract: Abstract Connexin 26 (Cx-26), a gap junction protein coded by GJB2 gene, plays a very important role in recycling of potassium ions, one of the vital steps in the mechanotransduction process of hearing. Mutations in the GJB2 gene have been associated with both autosomal recessive as well as dominant nonsyndromic hearing loss. As Cx-26 is linked with skin homeostasis, mutations in this gene are sometimes associated with syndromic forms of hearing loss showing skin anomalies. We report here a non consanguineous assortatively mating hearing impaired family with one of the hearing impaired partners, their hearing impaired sibling and hearing impaired offspring showing compound heterozygosity in the GJB2 gene, involving a dominant mutation p.R184Q and two recessive mutations p.Q124X and c.IVS 1+1G>A in a unique triallelic combination. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report from India on p.R184Q mutation in the GJB2 gene associated with rare compound heterozygosity showing nonsyndromic presentation.

  • A novel myringoplasty technique: the placement of a complementary graft
           descending from the scutum to support an anterosuperior perforation
    • Authors: Erdal Sakalli; Cengiz Celikyurt; Sultan Biskin; Selcuk Cem Erdurak

      Abstract: Abstract We describe a novel myringoplasty procedure. We placed a separated fascia graft descending from the scutum, combined with underlay myringoplasty, to support an anterosuperior perforation. We reviewed data from patients who underwent myringoplasty procedures to treat perforations extending into the anterosuperior quadrant of the pars tensa from October 2012 to June 2014. A total of 42 patients who were followed for a minimum of 1 year were enrolled. The same technique was used in all operations. The tympanomeatal flap was elevated from the neck of malleus up to the tip of the lateral process of malleus. The anterior mallear fold was incised to create an opening running from the neck of the malleus to the anterior tympanic spine. A separate temporal fascia graft (complementary graft) was next inserted through the opening and pushed down into the protympanum. The upper part of the fascia graft was placed over the superior bony wall of the canal. Underlay myringoplasty was then performed. The inferior part of the fascia graft was next spread out to cover the lateral surface of the underlying graft. We measured graft take rate and preoperative and postoperative hearing parameters. The graft success rate was 97.7 % (41/42 patients). The preoperative air-bone gap was 22.56 ± 18.12 dB, and the postoperative air-bone gap was 8.4 ± 10.05 dB. This difference was statistically significant (P < 0.001). We believe that this myringoplasty technique is a safe, suitable, and effective for cases with tympanic membrane perforations extending into the anterosuperior quadrant of the pars tensa.

  • Classification of suprabullar pneumatization according to the skull base
           attachment of the second lamella
    • Authors: Keng Lu Tan; Woo Hyun Lee; Jeong-Whun Kim
      Pages: 223 - 229
      Abstract: Abstract The skull base attachment of the second lamella and suprabullar pneumatization are likely to be consistent landmarks if they are systematically classified. This study aimed to classify the pneumatization pattern according to the second lamella skull base attachment. A total of 202 computed tomography sides of 101 patients who underwent endoscopic sinus surgery were studied. Suprabullar pneumatization was defined as air cells present above the ethmoid bulla between the second and third lamellae. Its pattern was classified according to the air cell number and location as in the frontal cell classification. Type 0 suprabullar pneumatization was defined as no air cells between the ethmoid bulla and skull base; type 1, as a single suprabullar cell; and type 2, as multiple suprabullar cells above the ethmoid bulla. In type 3 pneumatization, the second lamella extended into the frontal sinus forming a frontal bullar cell. Type 2 was the most prevalent (40.1 %), followed by types 1, 3, and 0 (24.3, 23.3, and 12.4 %, respectively). The distance between the second lamella and anterior ethmoid artery was 8.93, 8.30, 8.50, and 11.25 mm in types 0, 1, 2, and 3 pneumatization, respectively. No patients had intraoperative injuries in the anterior ethmoid artery or lateral lamella. The second lamella skull base attachment and suprabullar pneumatization pattern could be systematically classified and be a consistent landmark to identify the frontal sinus opening.

  • Identification of potential crucial gene network related to seasonal
           allergic rhinitis using microarray data
    • Authors: Jun Shi; Ying Zhang; Shanshan Qi; Guanghui Liu; Xiang Dong; Nan Huang; Wenjing Li; Hao Chen; Bingmei Zhu
      Pages: 231 - 237
      Abstract: Abstract The aim of this study was to reveal a potential key gene network associated with seasonal allergic rhinitis (SAR). The microarray data GSE50101 downloaded from Gene Expression Omnibus were used to screen differentially expressed genes (DEGs) between SAR patients and healthy controls. Then, functional enrichment analysis was conducted using Database for Annotation, Visualization, and Integrated Discovery. Afterwards, the protein–protein interactions (PPIs) of DEGs were obtained from STRING, and the PPI network was constructed. In addition, the PPI network module was analyzed. In total, 98 up-regulated and 63 down-regulated DEGs were identified from the SAR samples, comparing the healthy controls. The up-regulated DEGs were mainly enriched in the Gene Ontology terms about cell death (e.g., DUSP1 and JUN) and pathways related to immune (e.g., FOS and JUN). The down-regulated DEGs were mainly enriched in regulation of transcription (e.g., CEBPD and SCML1). In the PPI network, a set of genes was predicted to interact with each other, such as FOS, JUN, and CEBPD. Furthermore, genes in the network module (e.g., FOS, JUN and CEBPD) was mainly enriched in regulation of transcription, and pathways about immune, such as mitogen-activated protein kinase signaling pathway, B cell receptor signaling pathway, and toll-like receptor signaling pathway. Several genes related to immunity and regulation of transcription, such as FOS, JUN, and CEBPD, may play crucial roles during the process of SAR through the interactions with each other.

  • Upper airway structural changes induced by CPAP in OSAS patients: a study
           using drug-induced sleep endoscopy
    • Authors: Sung Hoon Jung; Soo Kweon Koo; Jang Won Choi; Ji Seung Moon; Sang Hoon Lee
      Pages: 247 - 252
      Abstract: Abstract We studied upper airway structural changes induced by continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) in obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) patients using drug-induced sleep endoscopy (DISE). This prospective study was conducted at an academic secondary referral center. In total, 28 male OSAS patients (mean age 41.1 years) with only retropalatal level obstructions were enrolled. Measurements of the obstruction site were obtained in two steps: first a measurement was taken of the obstruction site in accordance with sleep apnea, then, a measurement was taken of the obstruction site in accordance with DISE-assisted CPAP titration, including quantitative changes in the occlusion site before and after CPAP in pixel format using an area calculation program. There was a tendency for persistent closing in cases of antero-posterior (AP) obstruction versus cases of lateral (Lat) obstruction in the CPAP titration. Lat obstructions showed a tendency to be wider than AP obstructions in the quantitative analysis. These results show that the pattern and degree of airway expansion after CPAP differ in accordance with the obstruction site.

  • Intraductal injection as an effective drug delivery route in the
           management of salivary gland diseases
    • Authors: Chin-Hui Su; Kuo-Sheng Lee; Te-Ming Tseng; How Tseng; Yi-Fang Ding; Michael Koch; Shih-Han Hung
      Pages: 399 - 404
      Abstract: Abstract While conservative approaches for chronic sialoadenitis are in current use, the utility of intraductal injection therapy remains unclear. The purpose of this study is to provide evidence that substances delivered through intraductal injection of the salivary gland are able to be effectively distributed throughout the gland. Methylene blue dye (0.1 %) was injected intraductally into a porcine parotid gland (5 ml) of one group and the porcine submandibular gland (1 or 2 ml, n = 6 for each preparation) of another group. After the injection, the ductal systems were evaluated, sectioned, and observed microscopically. Color area analysis was performed on submandibular gland sections, and the infiltration ratio of the dye was calculated. The papillae of both Stensen’s and Wharton’s duct openings were easily identified with intraductally delivered methylene blue dye. The dye infiltration began from the central ductal region of the gland and could be easily observed to gradually disperse to the peripheral regions in each acinar. There were no statistically significant differences in infiltration ratios between anterior, midline, and posterior section of the submandibular gland. Also, there were no statistically significant differences in the ratios between 1 and 2 ml injections at all the three section positions. This study demonstrated that desired substances can be evenly delivered throughout the salivary gland through intraductal injections. The use of intraductal injections might serve as a potential therapeutic procedure in the management of salivary gland diseases.

      Abstract: Abstract External ear reconstruction is a controversial topic in reconstructive plastic surgery. Here, we prepared a pedicled biosynthetic flap for full-thickness, partial ear defects in rabbits. We operated on six adult female New Zealand rabbits weighing 3–4 kg. The dimensions of the lateral thoracic fasciocutaneous flap were 7 × 6 cm. The flap was elevated based on one of the bilaterally located internal thoracic arteries, which were dissected proximally. The pedicled flap was folded in two, and polypropylene mesh was sandwiched in the middle. The flap was adapted to a defect of 3.5 × 3 cm in diameter. In fact, the defect was created before elevation of the flap. Rabbits were followed up for 4 weeks, at the end of which they were killed and their ears were evaluated histopathologically. The survival rate of the rabbits was 100 %. All pedicled biosynthetic flaps were viable, but one showed partial (20 %) necrosis (1/6) and one was partially detached (1/6). Macroscopic (color, thickness, texture) and histological (polymorphonuclear leukocyte invasion in the skin, subcutaneous tissue, and at the junction between the polypropylene mesh and the flap) features of the flap were compared to the ipsilateral ear. A new technique was developed for partial external ear reconstruction with sufficient inner skeletal support and outer skin lining. Level of evidence Level NA

  • Transaxillary gasless endoscopic thyroidectomy versus conventional open
           thyroidectomy: a randomized study
    • Authors: Kitti Jantharapattana; Jirayut Maethasith
      Pages: 495 - 500
      Abstract: Abstract The objective of this study is to compare the outcomes of transaxillary gasless endoscopic thyroidectomy (TGET) and conventional open thyroidectomy (COT). Thirty-three patients with thyroid nodule were enrolled. All patients were randomized into two different groups. Sixteen patients underwent TGET and 17 patients underwent COT. We analyzed the patients’ characteristics, wound satisfaction, the intraoperative phase, hospitalization, pain, and costs. The operative time for the TGET group was significantly longer than in the COT group. The estimated blood loss, the hospitalized days, and pain between the two groups were not significantly different. The drainage content was significantly more in the TGET group. The patients’ wound satisfaction and mean total cost per case were significantly greater in the TGET group. The TGET provided better cosmetic outcomes and was comparable regarding the estimated blood loss, pain, complication, and hospitalization. However, the TGET required a longer operative time which determines the higher costs.

  • Vascular leiomyoma of the nasal cavity: case report and literature review
    • Authors: Thomas Mathieu; Annelies Verbruggen; Gerda Goovaerts; Frank Declau
      Pages: 579 - 583
      Abstract: Abstract We report a case of a 54-year-old man with an angioleiomyoma originating from the right nasal floor. Nasal vascular leiomyomas are extremely rare tumours. A review of the literature revealed a limited number of cases of vascular leiomyoma in the nasal cavity. Clinically, they are characterised by nasal obstruction, epistaxis or pain as the primary symptom. Up to our knowledge, this is the first case in which a 3D CT scan was performed preoperatively. 3D CT scan reconstructions can show the delineation of the tumour very accurately helping to establish the therapeutic plan for removal. The definite diagnosis can only be confirmed by histopathology. Histopathologically, a vascular leiomyoma demonstrates proliferation of smooth muscle cells intermingled with dilated venous vessels.

  • Venous anastomosis in free flap reconstruction after radical neck
           dissection: is the external jugular vein a feasible option'
    • Authors: Maximilian Reiter; Philipp Baumeister
      Abstract: Abstract Free microvascular tissue transfer has become a reliable and wellestablished technique in reconstructive surgery. Success rates greater than 95% are constantly reported in the literature. End-to-end anastomosis to the external jugular vein (EJ) is supposed to be equally successful as anastomosis to the internal jugular vein (IJ) in patients treated with selective neck dissection. No data has been published so far when the IJ had to be resected during neck dissection. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the success rate and complications of end-to-end anastomosis to the EJ in cases of (modified) radical neck dissection with resected IJ. A retrospective mono-center cohort study was performed. All patients with end-to-end anastomosis to either the IJ or EJ-system were reviewed. 423 free-tissue transfers performed between 2009 and 2016 were included. The overall success rate was 97.0% with an anastomotic revision rate due to venous thrombosis of 12.3%. In patients when the IJ had to be resected and the venous anastomosis was performed at the ipsilateral side to the EJ (n = 53), overall flap loss was significantly higher (5/53; 9.4%). The revision rate in these cases was 22.6%. Success rate of anastomosis to the EJ when the ipsilateral IJ was still intact was 100% (n = 20). Success rate when the anastomosis was performed at the contralateral side was 100%. End-to-end anastomosis to the EJ in cases with resected IJ is more likely to result in free flap loss. Furthermore, it is associated with a higher revision rate. Therefore, in cases with resected IJ, we suggest to plan the operation beforehand with anastomosis at the contralateral side whenever possible.

  • Influence of temporary nasal occlusion (tNO) on epistaxis frequency in
           patients with hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT)
    • Authors: Kornelia E. C. Wirsching; Frank Haubner; Thomas S. Kühnel
      Abstract: Abstract The objective of the study was to evaluate the influence of temporary nasal occlusion (tNO) with hypoallergenic tape on the frequency and severity of epistaxis in patients with hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT). This prospective observational study included 20 HHT patients who were undergoing Nd:YAG laser therapy at regular intervals. Over a 3-month period, laser therapy was supplemented by tNO with hypoallergenic tape for 5 h/day on average. On a 0–10 numeric rating scale, the patients reported significantly greater satisfaction in epistaxis terms after tNO treatment, with mean scores of 5 before and 7 after 3-month tNO (p = 0.05). The Epistaxis Severity Score also fell significantly from a median of 3.59–2.43 after 3-month tNO compared with laser therapy alone (p = 0.01). The patients’ hemoglobin levels remained stable during the study (median: 12.2 g/dL before tNO; median: 11.7 g/dL after tNO; p = 0.387). Overall, the present study confirms the positive influence of tNO on epistaxis in HHT patients and on subjective satisfaction. This simple and inexpensive strategy is therefore a helpful option, especially in addition to regular Nd:YAG laser therapy, and is recommended by the authors.

  • Relationship between increased carotid artery stiffness and idiopathic
           subjective tinnitus
    • Authors: C. Bayraktar; S. Taşolar
      Abstract: Abstract Tinnitus is defined as perception of sound with no external stimulus, and can separate into pulsatile and non-pulsatile types. Arterial stiffness is a parameter that can predict the cardiovascular event and associated with incidence of stroke. It has been shown that increased arterial stiffness may lead to microvascular damage in brain. Our aim was to assess the arterial stiffness of the carotid system in the development and severity of idiopathic subjective tinnitus. Forty subjective tinnitus patients and 40 age- and sex-matched controls were enrolled in the study. The parameters obtained from the participants included pure tone hearing (dB), serum lipid profile (mg/dl), fasting glucose (mg/dl), blood pressure (mmHg), and body mass index (BMI, kg/m2). The common carotid artery (CCA) stiffness index, Young’s elastic modulus (YEM), common carotid intima–media thickness (CIMT), peak systolic velocity (PSV), end-diastolic velocity (EDV), resistive index (RI), pulsatility index (PI), vessel diameter, mean velocity (MV), and volume flow (VF) were measured in both the right and left common carotid arteries in both groups. The CCA stiffness index, YEM measurements, right CIMT, and left PI were found to be significantly higher in the patients than those in the control group (p < 0.05). With regard to the severity of the tinnitus and the patient characteristics, there was a significant positive correlation with the CCA stiffness index, YEM measurements, left CIMT, and neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR). However, only the right and left CCA stiffness parameters were found to be statistically significant in the multivariate analysis as independent predictors of a moderate to high degree of tinnitus. The increased stiffness index of the common carotid arteries was significantly associated with the formation and severity of tinnitus. Therefore, an assessment of the carotideal system may be helpful in these patients.

    • Authors: Niclas Rubek; Hani Ibrahim Channir; Birgitte Wittenborg Charabi; Christel Bræmer Lajer; Katalin Kiss; Hans Ulrik Nielsen; Jens Bentzen; Jeppe Friborg; Christian von Buchwald
      Abstract: Abstract There is an increasing incidence of oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (OPSCC) in the western world due to human papillomavirus (HPV). According to the Danish Head and Neck Cancer Group guidelines, the current recommended treatment of patients with OPSCC in Denmark is primary radiation therapy (RT) with or without concomitant chemotherapy. This is the first study in Scandinavia from a head and neck cancer centre that aims to demonstrate the feasibility of performing primary transoral robotic surgery (TORS) and concurrent neck dissection for patients with early stage OPSCC. Between September 2014 and January 2016, 30 consecutive patients with clinical T1–T2, N0–N1 OPSCC underwent primary TORS and concurrent neck dissection. The patients were offered postoperative adjuvant therapy according to pathological risk parameters: pT >2, T-site margin <2 mm, pN >1 or extracapsular extension (ECE). Concomitant chemotherapy was offered to patients with the presence of ECE or involved margins. Twenty-nine patients had negative margins on T-site after primary resection. Only one patient had a close margin of 1 mm. Unilateral neck dissection was performed in 21 patients while nine patients underwent bilateral neck dissection. Due to an upstaging following surgery, 13 patients were referred to adjuvant therapy. Four of these patients received RT and two patients received concomitant chemo-radiation (CCR) therapy. Seven patients declined the recommended adjuvant therapy one of whom later developed an N-site recurrence and received salvage surgery with postoperative RT. In summary, 43% of the patients were referred to adjuvant therapy following primary surgery which was mainly due to N-site stage migration and ECE. Primary TORS and concurrent neck dissection is a safe and feasible procedure that may be an alternative to primary RT and CCR in a selected group of patients with early stage OPSCC.
