OBJECTIVE: In this study, we aimed to investigate the effect of CAPE and thymoquinone in experimental rat otitis media with effusion (OME) model. METHODS: Intraoral approach of eustachian tube orifice cauterization were administered to 36 of 40 rats participating the study. After application of exclusion criterias, 22 rats with appropriate conditions were determined. Totally 26 rats (44 otitis model ears and 8 normal ears) were randomly divided into 5 groups. While group I was consisted of healthy rats, the other groups were consisted of rats with otitis model...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the clinical impact of an initiative to use ultrasound (US) as the primary diagnostic modality for children with superficial face and neck infections versus use of computed tomography (CT). METHODS: Children with a diagnosis of lymphadenitis, face or neck abscess, or face and neck cellulitis were retrospectively evaluated by the otolaryngology service. Patients were separated into two groups based on implementation of a departmental initiative to use US as the primary diagnostic modality...

OBJECTIVES: Since the pragmatic skills of hearing-impaired Persian-speaking children have not yet been investigated particularly through story retelling, this study aimed to evaluate some pragmatic abilities of normal-hearing and hearing-impaired children using a story retelling test. METHODS: 15 normal-hearing and 15 profound hearing-impaired 7-year-old children were evaluated using the story retelling test with the content validity of 89%, construct validity of 85%, and reliability of 83%...

OBJECTIVE: This study investigates the development of theory of mind (ToM) in Japanese children with hearing loss (HL) and its relationship with language abilities using the data of a large sample size. METHODS: Participants were 369 children with HL, ranging from 4 to 12 years of age. The mean hearing level of the better ear was 100.7 dB. A "change in location"-type false belief task similar to the "Sally-Anne test" was given to the participants. RESULTS: The pass rates for the false belief task were in the 20% range for 4 to 6-year-olds, 35...

OBJECTIVE: Pediatric periorbital cellulitis represents a common disease complicating a nasal infection. METHODS: A ten-year retrospective review of fifty-seven children admitted to our institution with the diagnosis of periorbital cellulitis as a complication of sinus infections was carried out. RESULTS: The age varied from one month to eleven years (mean 3.9 years). Thirty-five were males (62%), while twenty-two were females (38%). Nine out of fifty-seven (15...

OBJECTIVES: Many pediatric surgeons feel uncomfortable doing Sistrunk procedure without drain placement and in an outpatient setting. This study aimed to review our pediatric surgery department's experience in managing thyroglossal duct cyst surgery and to prove feasibility and safety of Sistrunk procedure without drain placement in an outpatient setting. METHODS: A retrospective review was performed of all patients who underwent Sistrunk procedure, between January 2011 and December 2015, in our department...

Cisplatin (cis-diaminedichloridoplatinum(II), cis-[PtCl2(NH3)2]) is an effective chemotherapeutic agent in the treatment of several types of malignant solid tumors but its clinical use is associated with ototoxicity. Several studies have investigated the effect of antioxidants on cisplatin-induced ototoxicity in mice. The triazole KPR-A020 has been shown to play a protective role against mitochondrial dysfunction by reducing the production of mitochondrial reactive oxygen species (ROS). The effect of KPR-A020 on cisplatin-induced ototoxicity was examined using cultures of cochlear explants...

OBJECTIVE: Suprastomal granulomas pose a persistent challenge for tracheostomy-dependent children. They can limit phonation, cause difficulty with tracheostomy tube changes and prevent decannulation. We describe the use of the coblator for radiofrequency plasma ablation of suprastomal granulomas in five consecutive children from September 2012 to January 2016. METHOD: Retrospective case series at a tertiary medical center. RESULTS: The suprastomal granuloma could be removed with the coblator in all 5 cases...

OBJECTIVES: Tonsil surgery is associated with significant morbidity during recovery. Patient-reported outcome measures (PROM) are the golden standard for the planning and follow-up of delivered care, which should also be an axiom for children. The current aims were to describe self-reported postoperative recovery in children after tonsil surgery, and to compare tonsillotomy and tonsillectomy in this respect. METHODS: In total, 238 children (4-12 years old) with a history of obstructive problems and/or recurrent tonsillitis, and undergoing tonsil surgery were included...

OBJECTIVES: Universal newborn hearing screening (UNHS) has become the standard of care in many countries. The aim of this study was to evaluate the results of UNHS after ten years of the program in Poland and to compare them with the results of 2003. METHODS: In the study, we analyze the results of UNHS in the University Hospital in Poznan, Poland. Between 01.01.2013 and 31.12.2013, 6827 children were examined by means of otoacoustic emissions. RESULTS: Risk factors (RF) were identified in 772 (11...

OBJECTIVES: The widespread emergence of antimicrobial resistance has led many healthcare institutions to adopt more conservative antibiotic prescription practice guidelines for the treatment of acute otitis media (AOM). Little is known about the awareness and use of such guidelines by physicians in Jordan. Our aim was to pilot an anonymous survey instrument that would assess AOM treatment trends as well as awareness of and adherence to practice guidelines in Amman. By qualitatively assessing the management of AOM we could illuminate possible disparities in treatment trends, evaluate variability in practice guideline adherence, and help focus efforts of future educational programs that pertain to pediatric AOM management...

Sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) is the most prevalent genetic sensory defect in humans, affecting about 1 in 1000 newborns around the world. Non-syndromic SNHL accounts for nearly 70% of hereditary hearing loss and 80% of SNHL cases show an autosomal recessive mode of inheritance (ARNSHL). In the present study, we applied targeted-exome sequencing to a family with a single proband affected by congenital sensorineural hearing loss. 127 known genes were sequenced to find the causative mutation. One novel homozygous donor splice site mutation, c...

INTRODUCTION: Peri-operative management of high-risk paediatric patients undergoing adenotonsillectomy for treatment of obstructive sleep apnoea varies between tertiary referral hospitals. 'Day of surgery cancellation' (DoSC) rates of up to 11% have been reported due to pre-booked critical care being unavailable on the day of surgery as a result of competing needs from other hospital departments. We report the results of a survey of peri-operative management in UK tertiary care centres of high-risk paediatric patients undergoing adenotonsillectomy for obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA)...

OBJECTIVE: To describe our indications, findings, and outcomes for transcanal endoscopic middle ear exploration in pediatric patients with conductive hearing loss of unknown etiology, without effusions. METHODS: Prospective case series for all pediatric patients undergoing totally endoscopic transcanal middle ear exploration between April 2012 and October 2015 at a pediatric tertiary care referral hospital. Demographic data, operative findings, and hearing results were reviewed...

INTRODUCTION: The pediatric voice handicap index (pVHI) has been developed to provide a better insight into the parents' perception of their child's voice related quality of life. The purpose of the present study was to validate the Dutch pVHI by evaluating its internal consistency and reliability. Furthermore, we determined the optimal cut-off point for a normal pVHI score. METHODS: All items of the English pVHI were translated into Dutch. Parents of children in our dysphonic and control group were asked to fill out the questionnaire...

INTRODUCTION: Sleep disordered breathing (SDB) symptoms are associated with increased rates of opioid-induced respiratory depression as well as enhanced nociception. Consequently, practitioners often withhold or administer lower intraoperative doses of opioids out of concern for postoperative respiratory depression. Therefore, SDB may be a critical determinant of analgesic requirement in the post-anesthesia care unit (PACU). We investigated whether preoperative SDB classification was independently associated with need for PACU analgesic intervention in a cross-sectional sample of 985 children who underwent elective, painful ambulatory surgical procedures...
