  • Prevalence and clinical characteristics of allergic rhinitis in the
           elderly Korean population
    • Abstract: Purpose The proportion of elderly people aged ≥ 65 years is increasing worldwide. Although the reported prevalence of sinonasal disease can vary according to the diagnostic methods used, differences in allergic rhinitis prevalence in the elderly according to diagnostic method have not been reported. We thus aimed to evaluate allergic rhinitis prevalence in the elderly according to diagnostic criteria obtained from questionnaires, physician diagnoses, and allergy tests. Methods We compared the allergic rhinitis prevalence in the elderly aged ≥ 65 years with adults aged 19–64 years, using data from the Korean National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 2008–2012. Total serum IgE and IgE levels specific to allergens of Dermatophagoides farina, cockroach, and dog dander were examined, and factors affecting specific IgE levels were investigated. Results Allergic rhinitis prevalence according to the questionnaire responses, physician diagnoses, and allergy test results was 35.02%, 14.89%, and 17.56%, respectively. The prevalence based on all diagnostic methods assessed was significantly lower in the elderly than in the general adult group (p < 0.001). Rhinorrhea incidence was significantly increased in the elderly (p = 0.018). Sensitization to Dermatophagoides farina was significantly decreased in the elderly (p = 0.006) and did not correlate with socioeconomic status and/or general health factors. Conclusions The elderly population has a distinct clinical presentation, including a low prevalence of allergic rhinitis, and an increased incidence of rhinorrhea symptoms, compared with the general adult population. The management of allergic rhinitis in elderly patients may therefore require a different therapeutic approach to improve rhinorrhea rather than nasal obstruction.

  • Chondrolaryngoplasty for transgender patients: feasibility of a scar-free
    • Abstract: Purpose Adult male-to-female transgender patients with a prominent thyroid notch can benefit from chondrolaryngoplasty with high satisfaction rates. It is a safe, effective, and established procedure with only minor and temporary complications. Until now, only external approaches have been described, leaving the patient with a cervical scar, which remains a frequent complaint. The goal of this study is to assess the feasibility of a transvestibular endoscopic chondrolaryngoplasty. Methods Transvestibular endoscopic chondrolaryngoplasty was conducted on six fresh adult male cadavers. The thyroid cartilage approach was similar to the one described in cases of transvestibular endoscopic thyroidectomy. After thyroid notch exposition, the laryngeal prominence was shaved down using an endoscopic burr until the desired aesthetic result was achieved. Results Laryngeal prominence volume was significantly reduced without any cutaneous scar. Conclusion We have demonstrated that this novel approach is feasible and has the advantage of leaving the patient’s neck scar-free.

  • Reply to “Indications and timing for tracheostomy in patients with SARS
           CoV2‐related” by Ferri et al.

  • Indications and timing for tracheostomy in patients with SARS CoV2-related
    • Abstract: Background The indications and timing for tracheostomy in patients with SARS CoV2-related are controversial. Purpose In a recent issue published in the European Archives of Otorhinolaryngology, Mattioli et al. published a short communication about tracheostomy timing in patients with COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease 2019); they reported that the tracheostomy could allow early Intensive Care Units discharge and, in the context of prolonged Invasive Mechanical Ventilation, should be suggested within 7 and 14 days to avoid potential tracheal damages. In this Letter to the Editor we would like to present our experience with tracheostomy in a Hub Covid Hospital. Methods 8 patients underwent open tracheostomy in case of intubation prolonged over 14 days, bronchopulmonary overlap infections, and patients undergoing weaning. They were followed up and the number and timing of death were recorded. Results Two patients died after tracheostomy; the median time between tracheostomy and death was 3 days. A negative prognostic trend was observed for a shorter duration of intubation. Conclusion In our experience, tracheostomy does not seem to influence the clinical course and prognosis of the disease, in the face of possible risks of contagion for healthcare workers. The indication for tracheostomy in COVID-19 patients should be carefully evaluated and reserved for selected patients. Although it is not possible to define an optimal timing, it is our opinion that tracheostomy in a stable or clinically improved COVID-19 patient should not be proposed before the 20th day after orotracheal intubation.

  • Facial nerve neurorrhaphy due to unexpected facial nerve injury during
           parotid gland tumor surgery
    • Abstract: Background Unexpected facial nerve damage can occur during parotid gland tumor surgery. We sought to determine the incidence and treatment outcomes of unexpected facial nerve injuries in patients with parotid gland tumor surgery. Methods We retrospectively enrolled in this study five patients, who underwent facial nerve neurorrhaphy due to unexpected facial nerve injury during parotid gland tumor surgery January 2012–August 2019. Results There were five patients (0.008%) with unexpected facial nerve injuries during the parotid gland tumor surgery of 577 patients in our hospital for approximately 8 years. The most common injury site of facial nerve was the marginal mandibular branch (n = 3), followed by the buccal branch (n = 1), and the cervicofacial division (n = 1). In the case of unexpected facial nerve damage, our treatment is immediate primary neurorrhaphy and steroid treatment. Three patients of five recovered and two did not worsen immediately after surgery. Conclusion Unexpected facial nerve injury during parotid gland tumor surgery is extremely unfortunate. In this case, immediate primary neurorrhaphy and systemic steroids are recommended to restore facial function and reduce cosmetic deficits.

  • Comparative analysis of rhinologic outcomes in Cushing disease and
           non-functioning pituitary adenoma in patients submitted to endoscopic
           endonasal transsphenoidal surgery
    • Abstract: Purpose Adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) secreted by pituitary tumors lead to changes in nasal cavity anatomy and physiology. As a consequence of hormonal alteration, there is an abnormal soft tissue and an increased capillary fragility, inducting to a thinner mucosa that acts in the healing process. We compared post-operative nasal alterations in patients with Cushing’s disease versus patients with non-functioning macroadenomas who underwent endoscopic endonasal transsphenoidal surgery. Methods A retrospective study with 14 patients with Cushing’s disease who underwent initial transsphenoidal endonasal surgery for an ACTH-secreting adenoma was conducted. Forty-two patients who underwent the same surgery for non-functioning adenomas were selected as controls. The following data were collected: operative technique, endoscopic alterations in late post-operative period and post-operative nasal complaints. Results There were 13/14 (92.9%) females with Cushing disease versus 23/42 (54.8%) in the non-functioning adenoma group. Surgical approach was similar in both groups, with no differences in flap usage, turbinectomies or ethmoidectomies. No difference occurred concerning endoscopic alterations or nasal complaints in post-operative period. Conclusions Post-operative results are similar, and healing could be expected to be equal.

  • Reinke’s edema: a proposal for a classification based on
           morphological characteristics
    • Abstract: Purpose Reinke’s edema is a benign laryngeal condition characterized by swelling of the superficial layer of the lamina propria of the vocal fold. The aim of this work is to propose a new classification of Reinke’s edema based on its morphological characteristics. Methods Our classification is a synthesis of the classifications available in the literature and is based on morphological characteristics such as the involvement of one or two vocal folds and the presence or absence of polypoid lesions regardless of the observation method. Results We indicate four types of Reinke’s edema: type 1: Reinke’s edema of one vocal fold; type 2: Reinke’s edema of both vocal folds; type 3: Reinke’s edema of one vocal fold with associated polypoid lesion, not necessarily the same fold of the edema; type 4: Reinke’s edema of both vocal folds with associated polypoid lesion on one or both folds. Conclusion Our proposed classification for Reinke’s edema represents a synthesis of the classifications available in the literature and is characterized by a simple categorization based on morphological characteristics commonly visible through laryngoscopy.

  • Lateral conservative approach for recurrent/persistent hypopharyngeal
           carcinoma: a case series
    • Abstract: Purpose Early persistent/recurrent hypopharyngeal tumours represent a challenge for surgeons who have to balance the need for oncological radicality and the desire to maintain a functioning larynx with preservation of the patient’s quality of life. The aim of this study was primarily to understand the technical feasibility, functional outcomes, and the possibility of obtaining oncological radicality using lateral hypopharyngectomy with laryngeal preservation in early recurrent post-radio/(chemo)therapy hypopharyngeal tumours. Methods Patients with recurrent T1 hypopharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma were retrospectively selected from our institutional database. The external lateral approach according to Spriano and a modified lateral hypopharyngectomy with laryngeal preservation were used to resect tumours of the lateral pyriform sinus wall. Reconstruction was obtained by direct approximation of the posterior border of the sectioned thyroid cartilage to the posterior hypopharyngeal wall, and this was reinforced with a second layer of vascularised and non-irradiated tissue that was provided by a microvascular fascial anterobrachial flap. Swallowing was assessed 3 weeks after surgery using videoendoscopic evaluation. Results The surgical procedure was technically feasible, and complete resection was obtained in all patients. None of the patients experienced major post-operative complications (salivary fistula, bleeding, aspiration pneumonia). Mild dysphagia was observed in one patient who underwent swallowing rehabilitation. Tracheostomy was closed in all patients. No recurrence was recorded after a median follow-up of 20 months. Conclusion The reported experience shows that, in selected cases, it is possible to radically remove lateral hypopharyngeal cancer with acceptable functional results.

  • UV light-based decontamination: an effective and fast way for disinfection
           of endoscopes in otorhinolaryngology'
    • Abstract: Background Reprocessing of endoscopes becomes increasingly complex, due to rising demands of hygiene. Established methods are often expensive/time-consuming. Recent studies suggest beneficial aspects of disinfection by UV light. In this study we analyzed the efficiency of UV light disinfection of rigid otorhinolaryngological endoscopes. Materials and methods After mechanical pre-cleaning, the endoscopes were decontaminated for 25 s in the D25 using Impelux™ UV C light technology (UV Smart B.V., Delft, The Netherlands). First, the surface contact samples were taken from 50 used endoscopes to evaluate the bacterial load. Additionally, surface contact samples were taken from further 50 used endoscopes after reprocessing with the D25. Another 50 endoscopes were tested on protein residuals. Furthermore, the absolute effectiveness of the D25 was tested on 50 test bodies (RAMS) with a standardized contamination of 107 colony-forming units (CFU) of Enterococcus faecium. Results The used endoscopes showed a high bacterial contamination with an average value of 66.908 (± 239.215) CFU. After reprocessing, only a minimal contamination on 10% (n = 5) of the endoscopes with a mean value of 0.12 CFU (± 0.39) was found, resulting in a log-5 reduction in a clinical environment. The documented bacteria were components of the normal skin flora. All tested endoscopes were practically protein-free (< 1 μg). Furthermore, the average absolute germ reduction of the D25 was about 106 CFU on the tested RAMS. Conclusion The D25 UV light system seems to be an effective device for the reprocessing of rigid ORL endoscopes, and therefore, might be suitable for the usage in clinical practice on site.
