OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS: To evaluate perioperative considerations and post-operative complications associated with parathyroidectomy in the pediatric population. METHODS: The Kids' Inpatient Database 21 (KID) was searched for patients who underwent parathyroidectomy in 2009 and 2012. Patient demographics, hospital stay, associated charges, and post-operative adverse sequelae were evaluated in all patients and included patient comorbidity and additional procedure requirement analysis...

OBJECTIVES: Newborn hearing screening programs are already implemented in many countries worldwide. Nonetheless there is still no consensus about the most proper post-birth day of examination. The purpose of this study was to assess the most appropriate day of universal hearing screening program in a public hospital. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A prospective cohort study was conducted in "Attiko University National Health System Hospital" and included 2494 newborns. They were examined before discharge from the hospital, using transient evoked otoacoustic emissions (TEOAEs)...

OBJECTIVE: The solution of severe tracheobronchial obstructions in early childhood means a great challenge. Biodegradable stents were intended to be a minimally invasive temporary solution which may decrease the number of interventions and limit the possible complications of stenting procedures. However, our first experiences have brought out a new, - especially in childhood - potentially life-threatening complication of this concept. METHODS: Five SX-ELLA biodegradable polydioxanone stents was applied in three patients because of severe tracheobronchial obstruction: congenital tracheomalacia (7 day-old), acquired tracheomalacia (10 month-old), and congenital trachea-bronchomalacia (10 month-old)...

OBJECTIVES: The study aimed to estimate the risk of developing chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) among children who had undergone a tonsillectomy by utilizing a cohort study based on a population-based database. METHODS: Data for this retrospective cohort study were sourced from the Taiwan "Longitudinal Health Insurance Database 2000". We included 202 children who had undergone a tonsillectomy as the study group and 2020 sex- and age-matched children as the comparison group...

INTRODUCTION: Hearing loss is a common chronic disorder characterized by decline of auditory function. The global population have suffered from deafness and the transplantation of stem cells is regarded as a therapeutic strategy for this disease. METHODS: We collected placenta from a total of 13 samples of full term pregnant women and isolated MSCs derived from human placenta and transplanted MSCs on deaf animal model. The normal group and the sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) group and the experimental (transplanted MSCs) group were compared and estimated hearing level using auditory brainstem response (ABR) recordings and the otoacoustic emission (OAE) test...

OBJECTIVES: Waardenburg syndrome is a rare genetic disorder, characterized by the association of sensorineural hearing loss and pigmentation abnormalities. Four subtypes have been classified. The present study aimed to analyze the clinical feature and investigate the genetic cause for a Chinese case of Waardenburg type IV (WS4). METHODS: The patient and his family members were subjected to mutation detection in the candidate gene SOX10 by Sanger sequencing. RESULTS: The patient has the clinical features of WS4, including sensorineural hearing loss, bright blue irides, premature graying of the hair and Hirschsprung disease...

Otolaryngologists frequently encounter children with foreign bodies retained inside the lumen of their upper aerodigestive tract. However, total capture in the soft tissues happens rarely, and could be clinically, as well as radiographically, silent. Ultrasonography is a safe and effective imaging modality, aiding both diagnosis and surgical treatment. We report on a 14-month girl with chronic, fluctuating cheek edema and erythema, induced by an impalpable, radiolucent bundle of organic fibers embedded intramuscularly...

OBJECTIVE: Lingual tonsillar hypertrophy is recognized as a cause of persistent obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) after adenotonsillectomy in children. However, little has been reported regarding the complications, postoperative course and effectiveness of lingual tonsillectomy (LT). Our objective was to review the safety and effectiveness of LT in children. METHODS: Retrospective review of children undergoing LT from January 2009 to December 2015 at a tertiary children's hospital...

Tracheal replacement is performed after resection of a portion of the trachea that was impossible to reconnect via direct anastomosis. A tissue-engineered trachea is one of the available options that offer many advantages compared to other types of graft. Fabrication of a functional tissue-engineered trachea for grafting is very challenging, as it is a complex organ with important components, including cartilage, epithelium and vasculature. A number of studies have been reported on the preparation of a graftable trachea...

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the changes in body weight following tracheostomy in pediatric patients. METHODS: Ninety-eight patients who underwent tracheostomy at the age of 0-6 years were enrolled. The body weight and growth percentile were measured before tracheostomy and at 1, 6, and 12 months after surgery. The body weight and growth percentile were plotted against time, which was compared with Korean growth chart curve. A Retrospective observational cohort study was performed...

INTRODUCTION: Adenotonsillectomy remains the accepted first-line treatment for obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) in children. Tonsillar size may be especially relevant in risk stratification as it may impact symptoms of sleep disordered breathing (SDB). This study assesses correlations among subjective tonsillar grading, measured tonsillar size, and degree of adenoid obstruction in patients age 3-6 years with caregiver-reported symptoms. METHODS: Children 3-6 years old undergoing adenotonsillectomy for OSAS were enrolled prospectively...

Bone-anchored hearing aids are external devices attached to the skull via a titanium implant, and can be used for multiple types of hearing loss. Traditionally, osseointegrated implants have been coupled to the external processor with a percutaneous abutment, but more recently, a fully implanted, transcutaneous magnet-based system has become available. Skin reactions from the percutaneous portion are a common complication that can prevent use of the device during critical windows of language development and learning in children...

OBJECTIVES: The aims of this study were to examine lipoic acid (LA)- or glutathione (GSH)-mediated protection against cytotoxicity following cisplatin exposure in HEI-OC1 auditory cells and measure the potential of LA and GSH to scavenge reactive oxygen species (ROS). This study also compares their protective effects and discusses the determination of a preventive or therapeutic dose. METHODS: HEI-OC1 cells were pretreated with LA or GSH for 24 h and then exposed to 15 μM cisplatin for 48 h...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Propofol is the most commonly used intravenous (IV) anesthetic agent and is associated with hypotension upon induction of anesthesia. Intravenous propofol infusion has several properties that may be beneficial to patients undergoing middle ear surgery. Topical application of concentrated epinephrine is a valuable tool for achieving hemostasis in the middle ear and during mastoid surgery. The purpose of the present study was to determine the effects of propofol infusion with topical epinephrine on cochlear blood flow (CBF) and hearing in rats...

OBJECTIVE: To retrospectively evaluate the long-term results of surgery for retrograde bone work, using soft-wall reconstruction of the canal wall, for pediatric cholesteatoma. METHODS: We retrospectively evaluated a series of 25 consecutive ears of 24 patients who were ≤16 years of age. All children underwent cholesteatoma surgery between October 2002 and August 2008. The type of cholesteatoma, the length of follow-up, the incidence of residual and recurrent cholesteatoma, postoperative hearing results, and the form of the reconstructed external canal wall and tympanic membrane were assessed...

INTRODUCTION: Within the Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI) pathway, which includes the processes of screening, diagnosis and intervention for paediatric hearing loss, paediatric diagnostic audiology involves a battery of specific tests and procedures. International studies have highlighted a golden standard for diagnosis of paediatric hearing loss as based on the Joint Committee of Infant Hearing (2007) diagnostic guidelines, closely resembling the HPCSA diagnostic guidelines...
