  • Five-year postoperative outcomes of modified staged canal wall up
           tympanoplasty for primary acquired cholesteatoma
    • Authors: Masahiro Komori; Naoaki Yanagihara; Jun Hyodo; Ryosei Minoda; Yasuyuki Hinohira
      Pages: 691 - 698
      Abstract: Objective For successful canal wall up tympanoplasty (CWUT) for the treatment of cholesteatoma, the restoration of stable middle ear aeration is also important; however, little is known about the dynamics of such aeration or the optimal surgical procedure. In this study, alternative additional surgical procedure was selected based on the grade of middle ear aeration during the second-stage operation. Subjects and methods Patients included in this study underwent staged CWUT surgeries with mastoid cortex plasty (MCP) for well-aerated ears (grade 3) and bony mastoid obliteration (BMO) for poorly aerated ears (grade 2–0). Of the 115 ears included in this study, 62 were followed for more than 5 years. Recurrence rates with deep retraction pocket formation were assessed using the Kaplan–Meier survival analysis. The aeration was graded as: 0, no aeration; 1, aeration of only the mesotympanum; 2, aeration of the entire tympanic cavity; and 3, aeration of both the tympanic and mastoid cavities. Results No recurrence was observed in ears associated with grade 3 aeration that underwent MCP or in ears with grade 2 aeration that underwent BMO during second-stage surgery. For grades 0 and 1 aeration ears, the recurrence rates were 8.1% after 5 years and 12.5% after 10 years (p < 0.05), and the aeration of recurrent ears deteriorated to grade 0. Conclusion Aeration during second-stage surgery predicts the final outcome.

  • The impact of acoustic neuroma on long-term quality-of-life outcomes in
           the United Kingdom
    • Authors: Wouter L. Lodder; Bernard F. A. M. van der Laan; Tristram H. Lesser; Samuel C. Leong
      Pages: 709 - 717
      Abstract: Objective To quantify the impact of acoustic neuroma on the quality-of-life (QOL) patients in the United Kingdom. Study design Online questionnaire survey. Patients Members of the British Acoustic Neuroma Association received PANQOL questionnaires. Results Of the 880 BANA members contacted, 397 (45.1%) responded, although only 359 had complete datasets for analysis. Composite QOL scores were as follows: for microsurgery 58 (SD 35), for radiotherapy 56 (SD18), for combination of surgery and radiotherapy 49 (SD 14), and for the observation group 54 (SD 20). No statistical significance with ANOVA (p = 0.532). Mean (SD) composite QOL scores were as follows: for follow-up < 6 52 (SD 18), for follow-up 6–10 55 (SD 20) and follow-up > 10 years 65 (SD 45). Overall, these values were significantly different compared by ANOVA (p < 0.001). Patients with facial paralysis showed no statistical significant differences between the different treatment groups. Conclusions Short- (< 6 years) and long-term (> 10 years) QOL outcomes show no significant differences between the different treatment groups.

  • Assessment of vestibular-evoked myogenic potentials and video head impulse
           test in type 2 diabetes mellitus patients with or without polyneuropathy
    • Authors: Mehmet Kalkan; Ali Bayram; Ferhat Gökay; Hasan Selçuk Cura; Cemil Mutlu
      Pages: 719 - 724
      Abstract: This study aimed to compare cervical vestibular-evoked myogenic potentials (cVEMP), ocular vestibular-evoked myogenic potentials (oVEMP) and video head impulse test (vHIT) results between patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM) or diabetic polyneuropathy (DPN) and healthy controls to determine vestibular end-organ pathologies. The participants in the present study consisted of three groups: the type 2 DM group (n = 33 patients), the DPN group (n = 33 patients), and the age- and sex-matched control group (n = 35). Cervical VEMP, oVEMP and vHIT were performed for each participant in the study and test results were compared between the groups. Peak-to-peak amplitudes of cVEMP (p13–n21) and oVEMP (n10–p15) were significantly lower in the DM and DPN groups than the control group. The values of vHIT were not statistically different between the groups. To our knowledge, the present study is the first report investigating oVEMP and cVEMP responses combined with vHIT findings in patients with DM and DPN. Vestibular end-organ pathologies can be determined via clinical vestibular diagnostic tools in spite of prominent vestibular symptoms in patients with type 2 DM as well as patients with DPN.

  • Satisfaction in rhinoplasty: the possible impact of anxiety and functional
    • Authors: Serap Koybasi; Yusuf Ozgur Bicer; Sinan Seyhan; Selcan Kesgin
      Pages: 729 - 733
      Abstract: Background Rhinoplasty is a complex but commonly applied surgical procedure. Patient satisfaction is the least discussed but one of the most important determinants of surgical success. Objectives Evaluation of the patient satisfaction together with surgeon satisfaction were the main goals of this study. The roles of anxiety, gender, age and follow-up period were also studied. Patients and methods 53 eligible patients operated by the first two authors within the previous 2 years were enrolled in the study. The medical records were reviewed for demographic data as well as the details of the surgical procedure. Functional and esthetic satisfactions of the patients were evaluated by VAS and ROE respectively. Surgeon satisfaction was evaluated by VAS in crosswise manner. Anxiety was measured by STAI_s and STAI_t scales. Results The analysis concerning esthetic results as well as functional results did not reveal any significant difference between the two surgeons (p = 0.132, p = 0.43 respectively). ROE scores were significantly different among patients with “good” and “very good” functional results. The difference between surgeon satisfaction and patient satisfaction was found to be insignificant (p = 0.273). Correlation analysis yielded a positive correlation between STAI_I and STAI_II (Pearson r = 0.335, p = 0.014) but not between STAI scores and ROE scores. Moreover, there was no relation between anxiety scores and the functional results. Likely, gender as well as age, follow-up, and surgical technique were not found to have any effect on patient satisfaction either. Conclusion Patient satisfaction is preferential in rhinoplasty. In our patient series, patient satisfaction was shown to be correlated with functional outcome but not with surgeon satisfaction. Anxiety was not found to have a significant impact on results of rhinoplasty. Our results should be interpreted cautiously keeping in mind that our patients’ primary drive for rhinoplasty was functional.

  • Endoscopic endonasal approach for trigeminal schwannomas: our experience
           of 39 patients in 10 years
    • Authors: Lu Yang; Li Hu; Weidong Zhao; Huankang Zhang; Quan Liu; Dehui Wang
      Pages: 735 - 741
      Abstract: Background The anatomical locations involved in trigeminal schwannomas (TSs) are quite complex. The endoscopic endonasal approach provides a minimal damage access corridor to both anterior and middle skull base for surgery. Given the nerve function recovery and postoperative neurological deterioration varied in different reports, the author demonstrates his surgery tips and the functional outcomes under endoscopic surgery in one single institution. Methods A retrospective review of patients with TSs was undertaken to assess the outcome of endoscopic surgery from 2006 to 2016. Clinical features, imaging findings, preoperative/postoperative neurological deficits, surgical approaches and followed up data were collected. Results Thirty-nine patients with TSs were included in this study. Surgical approaches include endoscopic medial maxillectomy approach (n = 8), endoscopic endonasal-assisted sublabial transmaxillary approach (n = 27) and endoscopic endonasal-assisted sublabial transmaxillary combined with septectomy (n = 4). Gross total resection and sub-total resection were achieved in 27 and 10 patients, respectively. The most common chief complaint was facial numbness, accounting for 41%, with a resolved rate of 62.5% after treatment. Fifteen patients developed new neurologic symptoms, including facial numbness/pain (n = 9 and 2, respectively), dry eye (n = 3) and mastication weakness (n = 1). Eight of these patients had partial improvement except for patients with dry eye. Conclusion Endoscopic endonasal approach represents a safe and effective surgical procedure for TSs in pterygopalatine fossa, infratemporal fossa and even Meckel cave. Tumor resection can be achieved by endoscope with few neurologic deficits and complications.

  • Sinonasal seromucinous hamartoma
    • Authors: Yu-Wen Huang; Ying-Ju Kuo; Ching-Yin Ho; Ming-Ying Lan
      Pages: 743 - 749
      Abstract: Introduction Seromucinous hamartoma (SH) is a rare benign glandular proliferation of the sinonasal tract and nasopharynx. Only few cases have been reported in recent years. Materials and methods We performed a retrospective medical record review of seven patients diagnosed with sinonasal SH who underwent endoscopic endonasal surgery. Results There were 5 males and 2 females, ranged in age from 40 to 98 years (mean 60 years, SD ± 18.9). Two lesions arise from middle turbinate, two from uncinate process, and 3 (but 4 specimens) from nasal septum. Pathological features revealed a polypoid lesion with submucosal proliferation of seromucinous glands arranged in lobular and haphazard patterns. In immunohistochemical study, the seromucinous glands of SH were reactive for cytokeratin, including CK7, CK19, HMWK, but negative for CK20. Conclusion Sinonasal SH is a rare diagnosis characterized by a polypoid lesion with a haphazard proliferation of seromucinous glands. The rhinologists should consider it in the differential diagnosis of a polypoid lesion in the nasal cavity.

  • MiRNA–mRNA crosstalk in laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma based on
           the TCGA database
    • Authors: Guan-Jiang Huang; Meng-Si Luo; Guo-Ping Chen; Min-Yi Fu
      Pages: 751 - 759
      Abstract: Background The functional characterization of non-coding microRNAs (miRNAs) has been shown to be associated with the pathophysiology of the disease, but it is still a challenging task to elucidate the pathogenesis of microRNAs and disease. In addition, the understanding of the role of miRNAs in the development of LSCC still needs further exploration. Materials and methods In this study, to identify miRNAs that play a key role in LSCC, we analyzed miRNA and mRNA sequence data from 162 LSCC samples from the TCGA database, and screened specific miRNAs and mRNAs by differential gene expression analysis. And then, construct a differentially expressed miRNAs and mRNAs interaction network. Results In our investigation, 23 miRNAs (P < 0.01, log2FoldChange > 2) and 331 mRNAs (P < 0.01, log2FoldChange > 4) were identified differentially expressed in LSCC and reduced the number of loosely linked miRNAs and mRNAs according to appropriate thresholds. Finally, 13 miRNAs and 35 mRNAs were enriched in a network. Conclusions Our study provides the most comprehensive information on the expression of miRNAs in LSCC and identifies the known oncogenic miRNAs (such as miR-163a), as well as aberrant expression of novel miRNAs involved in cell regulation and metabolic defects that occur during development of LSCC.

  • Sialendoscopy in treatment of adult chronic recurrent parotitis without
    • Authors: Johanna Jokela; Aaro Haapaniemi; Antti Mäkitie; Riitta Saarinen
      Pages: 775 - 781
      Abstract: Objective The aim of this prospective study was to evaluate the efficacy of sialendoscopy in the management of adult chronic recurrent parotitis without sialolithiasis. In addition, preliminary results of an initial randomized placebo-controlled trial of single-dose intraductal steroid injection given concurrently with sialendoscopy, are presented. Methods Forty-nine adult patients with chronic recurrent parotitis without sialoliths were included in this study. They underwent sialendoscopy and were randomized to receive either a concurrent intraductal injection of isotonic saline solution or 125 mg of hydrocortisone. Symptom severity was evaluated with visual analogue scale (VAS) and by recording symptom frequency and course with a multiple-choice questionnaire completed preoperatively and at 3, 6, and 12 months after the procedure. Results The mean VAS score was 5.6 preoperatively and dropped to 2.9 at 3 months, 3.0 at 6 months, and 2.7 at 12 months after the procedure. The VAS score and the frequency of symptoms were significantly lower at 3 (p < 0.001), 6 (p < 0.001) and 12 (p < 0.001) months after the procedure when compared with the preoperative scores indicating that sialendoscopy reduces the symptoms of recurrent parotitis. However, complete permanent resolution of symptoms was rare. Single-dose steroid injection concomitant to sialendoscopy provided no additional benefit, but the current study is not sufficiently powered to determine a clinical difference between the steroid and non-steroid groups. Conlusion Sialendoscopy appears to reduce the symptoms of chronic recurrent parotitis. While total permanent symptom remission is rare, sialendoscopy can be considered a safe and relatively efficacious treatment method for this patient group.

  • Uncertain effect of preventative shoulder rehabilitation for patients who
           underwent total laryngectomy with neck dissection
    • Authors: Peixia Wu; Zhengrong Peng; Junyi Chen; Yan Hu
      Pages: 795 - 801
      Abstract: Introduction Total laryngectomy (TL) with neck dissection (ND) is considered as crucial management for advanced-stage of laryngeal cancer. Shoulder dysfunction has long been recognized as a potential complication resulting from neck dissection. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of early prophylactic rehabilitation program in patients who underwent TL with ND. Methods A prospective, nonrandomized design was used. Seventy-six participants who underwent TL with ND were assigned into either an intervention or a control group. The control group received current standard care with no formal shoulder exercise provided, while the intervention group attended early preventive rehabilitation lasting 12 weeks. Participants were assessed at baseline, and at 3 and 6 months after surgery. Measured outcomes included shoulder function and patient-reported quality of life. General linear models with repeated measures were used to examine outcome changes in both groups over the designated assessment intervals. Results Improvement in shoulder function and patient-reported quality of life were both statistically significant over time, with no significant difference between control or intervention groups, indicating little or no benefit of preventative intervention on shoulder function outcomes. Analysis involving five subscales and the summary score of the quality of life questionnaire had only statistically significant improvement over time for both the control or intervention groups, except for physical well-being domain which had statistical significance both over time and between the control and intervention groups. Conclusion In this study, preventative exercise program initiated immediately after surgery had a limited impact on both shoulder function and perceived quality of life.

  • Patterns of care and impact of prognostic factors in the outcome of NUT
           midline carcinoma: a systematic review and individual patient data
           analysis of 119 cases
    • Authors: Prashanth Giridhar; Supriya Mallick; Lakhan Kashyap; Goura Kishor Rath
      Pages: 815 - 821
      Abstract: Introduction NUT midline carcinoma is a rare tumour occurring in young adults which is frequently misdiagnosed as poorly differentiated squamous cell carcinoma or germ cell tumour. Though considered highly aggressive, there is limited information about the clinical behaviour of such patients. We intended to perform this review of published literature to assess the demographic profile, pattern of care and assess survival outcomes. Methods Two authors independently searched PubMed and Google search for eligible studies from 1950 till July 1 2017 published in English language using MESH terms NUT midline carcinoma; NUT midline carcinoma and radiotherapy and translocation 15:19 tumour. Results Data of 119 patients were retrieved from 64 publications for statistical analysis. Median age of the entire cohort was 23 years (range 0–68 years). The analysis revealed equal incidence in males and females (60:58). The present analysis revealed that the most common location is the lung (n = 42) followed by head and neck (n = 40). Median OS for the entire cohort was only 5 months with 1 and 5 year OS for the entire cohort was 24.99 and 7.09% respectively. Radiotherapy and chemotherapy inclusion in primary treatment had a significant impact on overall survival on univariate analysis while surgery did not affect survival significantly. No impact on overall survival was found based on type of molecular translocation, i.e., NUT–BRD4, NUT–BRD3 or other variants. Inadequate data were available for identify impact of BET inhibitors and HiDAc on PFS and OS. Conclusion NUT midline carcinoma has dismal prognosis. Radiotherapy and chemotherapy improves survival, but do not provide long term control except in anecdotal cases. Further research is needed to improve outcomes in future.

  • Amiodarone-associated bilateral vestibulopathy
    • Authors: Robert Gürkov; Leonardo Manzari; Alexander Blödow; Angela Wenzel; Dusan Pavlovic; Leonal Luis
      Pages: 823 - 825
      Abstract: Background Bilateral vestibulopathy (BVP) is a debilitating disorder characterized by the hypofunction of both vestibular end organs or nerves. The most frequent identifiable causes of BVP are ototoxic drug effects, infectious and autoimmune disorders. The majority of cases, however, remain idiopathic. Methods Medical records of patients diagnosed with idiopathic BVP were examined in five dizziness clinics. Results We identified 126 patients with “idiopathic” BVP. Out of these, 15 patients had a history of Amiodarone treatment before the diagnosis of BVP, resulting in a 12% prevalence. Conclusion The present report supports the hypothesis that Amiodarone can cause BVP. Vestibular examination in patients taking Amiodarone and suffering from balance-related symptoms are recommended, to recognize this adverse effect as early as possible and allow for an informed judgement on a potential dose reduction or withdrawal for recovery of the vestibular function.

      Abstract: Some considerations will be expressed in consideration of the commentary previously published. In particular, we underline that no other medications were administered to the patients during the study period and any clinical evaluation was postponed in case of acute upper respiratory tract infection in the previous 14 days. We strongly advocate antibiotic treatment during any acute otitis media episode, and we agree that topically administered hyaluronic acid should be considered as a supporting treatment, “complementary to traditional therapies” in children with recurrent disease.

  • Preliminary experience in transoral laryngeal surgery with a flexible
           robotic system for benign lesions of the vocal folds
    • Authors: Marc Remacle; Vyas M. N. Prasad
      Abstract: Purpose This purpose of this case series is to present the first four cases utilizing micro-phonosurgical instrumentation designed specifically for use with a semi-flexible ‘robotic’ system—the Medrobotics Flex system and to evaluate the accessibility and feasibility of this platform in the context of transoral robotic surgery (TORS) for laryngeal surgery. Methods Four patients (3 female, 1 male; age range 49–79 years) were operated by the senior author at CHL—a tertiary hospital centre between 2016 and 2017. The ‘robot’ was deployed in all cases to assess its accessibility and ability to perform surgery in the larynx. Results All four patients were successfully treated using the system along with newly developed instrumentation specifically focused on phonosurgery. Conclusion This series has demonstrated accessibility and ability for laryngeal surgery using a novel semi-rigid operator-controlled ‘robotic’ system. We encountered no device failures and were able to perform all the selected cases uneventfully.
