OBJECTIVE: Evaluate the Montreal Children's Hospital experience with outpatient management of uncomplicated acute mastoiditis with parenteral antibiotic therapy alone and determine if it is a safe alternative to inpatient management. SUBJECTS AND METHOD: A retrospective review of pediatric patients diagnosed with acute mastoiditis at a tertiary care pediatric hospital between 2013 and 2015 was performed. Patients with syndromes, immunodeficiency, cholesteatoma, chronic otitis media, cochlear implant in the affected ear, or incidental mastoid opacity were excluded...

OBJECTIVES: The study was aimed at evaluating the impact of certain socioeconomic factors such as family income, level of parents' education, distance between the child's home and auditory verbal therapy clinic, and age of the child at implantation on postoperative cochlear implant outcomes. METHODS: Children suffering from congenital bilateral profound sensorineural hearing loss and a chronologic age of 4 years or younger at the time of implantation were included in the study...

OBJECTIVE: To review histopathologic diagnoses from tonsillectomy specimens and determine whether routine pathologic exam is necessary. METHODS: Pathology reports of patients undergoing tonsillectomy from 2005 to 2014 at our pediatric tertiary care hospital were reviewed. Histopathologic diagnoses were recorded with special attention to identification of malignancy. RESULTS: A total of 8807 paired tonsil specimens were sent to pathology over a 10-year course...

OBJECTIVES: To analyze the clinical features of hearing impairment and to search for correlations with the genotype in patients with GJB2 mutations. DESIGN: Case series. SETTING: Collaborative study in referral centers, institutional practice. PATIENTS: A total of 690 hearing-impaired patients were genotypically and phenotypically described. The mutations of GJB2 and GJB6 were studied. Heterozygous patients were searched for another mutation by microsatellite approach...

BACKGROUND: Pediatric tonsillectomies are increasingly being performed as an outpatient procedure thereby increasing the parental role in post-operative pain management. However, it is unclear if parents receive adequate teaching regarding pain management. We introduced a video teaching tool and compared its efficacy alone and in combination with the standard verbal instruction. METHODS: A prospective study which randomized parents or caregivers of children undergoing tonsillectomy ± adenoidectomy into three groups: 1) standard verbal post-operative instructions; 2) watching the video teaching tool along with standard verbal instructions or 3) video teaching tool only...

INTRODUCTION: The prevalence of pediatric obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) has increased concurrently with the increasing prevalence of obesity. We have previously validated a short questionnaire predicting the occurrence of OSA on polysomnography (PSG). This follow-up study assessed the utility of the questionnaire in predicting postoperative outcomes. METHODS: Children undergoing surgery and completing a sleep study were prospectively screened for OSA using a short questionnaire...

Foreign body aspiration is a potentially life threatening problem. The successful removal of airway foreign bodies is dependent on positively identifying the object and developing a solution to its extraction prior to attempts at retrieval. Thus, pre-operative radiographic evaluation is essential in the diagnosis and management of foreign body aspiration. The current case report describes the unique challenges in the evaluation and management of an unusual foreign body within the airway. The distinctive radiographic appearance of this foreign body allows it to be easily identified pre-operatively, and this may decrease the likelihood of operative complications and patient morbidity...

BACKGROUND: Mutations in GJB3 were originally shown to underlie an autosomal dominant form of non-syndromic deafness in Chinese patients and the c.538C>T (p.R180*) variants caused high-frequency hearing loss. But after that, few reports have reported this mutation. This study investigated the relationship between the GJB3 c.538C>T variant and hearing phenotype in Chinese to assist with risk assessment and genetic counseling for hearing loss patients and their families. METHOD: The study enrolled 5700 patients with hearing loss and 4600 normal subjects...

OBJECTIVES: To review the clinical presentation, imaging and follow-up of parotid infantile hemangiomas (IH). METHODS: Over a 15-year period, all patients with a clinical diagnosis of parotid IH were evaluated. Imaging was available in 35. The medical records, photographs, and radiology studies of these patients were reviewed. RESULTS: All patients presented at less than 4 months of age (M:F, 13:21). 19 (55)% of tumors were on the left and were bilateral in 2 patients...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to review the clinical presentation and early signs and symptoms of otogenic intracranial complications (OIC) in children and adults. METHODS: retrospective chart review. The medical records of all children and adults admitted in our center with OIC during the period 2008-2017 were reviewed. Data concerning clinical presentation, treatment and outcomes were reviewed and analyzed. RESULTS: We included 47 patients with OIC: 21 children (range 1-13 years) and 26 adults (range 22-71 years)...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to discover Turkish regional differences in the risk factors of newborn hearing loss. METHOD: A multi-centered retrospective design was used. A total of 443 children, registered to the national newborn hearing screening programme, with bilateral hearing loss, from five different regions of Turkey, were evaluated in terms of the types of hearing loss, the degree of hearing loss, the types of risk factors, parental consanguinity, age at diagnosis and age of auditory intervention, respectively...

OBJECTIVES: To assess differences in intra- and postoperative electrode impedances following cochlear implantation between round window insertions (RWI) and extended round window insertions (ERWI). METHODS: Fifty patients with congenital hearing loss received unilateral hearing implants (Sonata Ti100, Med-El GmbH, Innsbruck, Austria) with standard electrode arrays. The patients were divided into two groups according to the surgical technique used. Thirty-five procedures were performed with RWI (group A) and 15 with ERWI (group B)...

BACKGROUND: The objective of this study was to identify the characteristics and incidence of Tracheobronchial branching abnormalities in patients with microtia and to evaluate the risk of anesthesia. METHODS: A total of 204 consecutive microtia patients and 465 nose cosmetic patients without microtia received a preoperative chest computed tomography. A retrospective study was performed with the clinical and imaging data from July 2016 to April 2017. RESULTS: With the chest computed tomography images, a total of 7 cases were documented with Tracheobronchial branching abnormalities, including 6 cases among the microtia patients and 1 case among the cosmetic patients without microtia...

OBJECTIVE: Parents can struggle while providing perioperative tonsillectomy care for their children at home. Short message service (SMS) technology is an accessible and direct modality to communicate timely, evidence-based recommendations to parents across the perioperative period. This study focused on validating a SMS protocol, Tonsil-Text-To-Me (TTTM), for parents of children undergoing tonsillectomy. METHODS: This study used a modified Delphi expert consensus method...

Mohd Normani Zakaria, Bahram Jalaei
OBJECTIVE: Auditory brainstem responses evoked by complex stimuli such as speech syllables have been studied in normal subjects and subjects with compromised auditory functions. The stability of speech-evoked auditory brainstem response (speech-ABR) when tested over time has been reported but the literature is limited. The present study was carried out to determine the test-retest reliability of speech-ABR in healthy children at a low sensation level. METHODS: Seventeen healthy children (6 boys, 11 girls) aged from 5 to 9 years (mean = 6...

REVIEW
Harry H Ching, Alycia G Spinner, Matthew Ng
INTRODUCTION: Tympanic membrane cholesteatoma (TMC) is a rare anomaly found in pediatric patients with no significant otologic history. Its pathogenesis appears distinct from congenital mesotympanic cholesteatoma. This systematic review and meta-analysis evaluates the management of TMC. METHODS: Two authors independently conducted a systematic review using the PubMed-NCBI, Cochrane Library, and Web of Science databases. Studies describing cases of pediatric TMC were included...
