The acoustic reflection method (ARM) is a non-invasive technique which uses the reflection of acoustic waves to measure the cross sectional area of nasal cavities in adults and patency of endotracheal tubes. Characteristics and volume of normal nasal cavities in pre-school children has so far not been studied. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to determine the optimal ARM recording and the minimal cross-sectional area (MCA) and volume (NV) values in healthy children. DESIGN: Prospective monocentric study using the ARM in pre-school children (<6 years of age)...

INTRODUCTION: In Belgium the majority of children with CI's are being educated in mainstream schools. In mainstream schools difficult listening situations occur (e.g. due to background noise) which may result in educational risks for children with CI's. A tool that identifies potential listening difficulties, the English Listen inventory for Education Revised (LIFE-R), was translated and validated into Dutch for elementary and secondary schools (LIFE-NL, LIFE2-NL respectively). METHODS: Two forward-backward translations were performed followed by a linguistic evaluation and validation by a multidisciplinary committee...

Two cases of anatomical variations of the thymus are presented with respect to the anatomical relations with the left brachiocephalic vein and found during the necropsy process. Less than 2 days after birth with Noonan Syndrome, when the left brachiocephalic vein was scanning behind the upper thymus horns, there were other adjacent lesions consisting of three supernumerary spleens and three hepatic veins. The second case was an 8-year-old infant with child malpractice who died from urinary sepsis due to obstructive uropathy, in which case the upper lobes of the thymus were fused and formed a ring through which the left brachiocephalic vein passed...

OBJECTIVE: Intubation has been associated with laryngeal injury that often resolves spontaneously without complication. We present a case of a child intubated for less than 48 hours, who presented with dysphonia and intermittent dyspnea two months after intubation due to epiglottic and vocal process granulomas. This is unusual in that multiple granulomas were found in the posterior glottis and supraglottis after short-term intubation. Our objective was to determine if there are risk factors for developing persistent post-intubation sequelae, including the delayed presentation and unusual location of post-intubation granulomas in our case...

OBJECTIVES: Airway management during adenoidectomy is traditionally performed through endotracheal intubation (ETT). Laryngeal mask airway (LMA) may be less stimulating to the airway and allow for shorter overall operating room time. Previous studies report LMA use during adenotonsillectomy. There has been no prior evaluation of LMA use during adenoidectomy alone. In this study, we attempt to identify the rate and contributing factors of LMA failure during adenoidectomy. METHODS: All pediatric patients undergoing adenoidectomy between January 1, 2016 and June 30, 2017 were reviewed...

OBJECTIVES: Congenital cholesteatoma (CC) occurs less commonly than acquired cholesteatoma (AC), and bilateral CC (BCC) is even more rare with only 38 such cases having been reported in the past 42 years. Because of the rarity of this condition, providers confronted with cases of BCC may find it difficult to treat while balancing complete removal of disease, optimal hearing outcomes, and minimized surgical burden in the pediatric patient. This review alerts physicians that BCC occurs, highlights past presentations and management strategies, describes the considerations in treatment and offers an algorithm helpful in the management of BCC...
