INTRODUCTION: Pediatric Sinonasal Malignancies (PedsSNM) are rare and usually associated with a poor prognosis. We aim to investigate the epidemiology, tumor characteristics, and survival of PedsSNM using a population-based database to augment the scant literature on this topic. METHODS: The Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results database was queried for patients ≤18 years diagnosed with PedsSNM between the years of 1973 and 2013. Data on incidence, tumor characteristics, and survival were analyzed...

BACKGROUND: Disease-specific health-related quality of life (HRQOL) questionnaires provide the clinician with important information regarding the impact of the disease on functioning and well-being. For patients with velopharyngeal insufficiency (VPI), the VPI Effects on Life Outcomes (VELO) questionnaire was developed and validated in English by Skirko et al. (2012). However, a valid and reliable Dutch translation of this questionnaire is not available yet. METHODS: The English questionnaire was translated to Dutch following a forward-backward translation procedure...

OBJECTIVES: To present results of a one-stage minimally invasive surgical procedure for congenital choanal atresia (CCA). Seven outcome measures were applied. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Retrospective study conducted between 1999 and 2015. The same endonasal endoscopic approach with multiflaps and no stenting was used on 36 children. The flaps were attached with fibrine glue. There were 50% unilateral and 50% bilateral cases, 70% primary and 30% secondary surgery. The mean age at primary surgery for bilateral atresia was 10 days and for unilateral atresia 4 years...

OBJECTIVES: To detect whether the mean platelet volume (MPV), neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR), and platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio (PLR) are contributing factors in the diagnosis and severity of sleep apnea in obese children. INTRODUCTION: Obesity is a public health problem, and its prevalence increases daily. Although PSG is the gold standard test in the investigation of sleep apnea, the application of this test requires equipment, personnel, time, and cost. There is no simple laboratory test for diagnosing and determining the severity of sleep apnea...

Lamotrigine is an anti-epileptic drug often prescribed to children and young females. Side effects include rash, dizziness and diplopia. Over the last twenty years, two cases of lymphadenopathy due to lamotrigine have been reported. We will present the case of a 17-year old female with persistent lymphadenopathy due to lamotrigine. The purpose of this case report is to inform clinicians that lymphadenopathy is a possible side effect of lamotrigine and to highlight the need for further research.

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the incidence of, features and risk factors for recurrent post tonsillectomy bleeding. METHODS: Audit of all patients 0-15 years of age undergoing tonsillectomy between 01/2004-12/2014 with selection of those with recurrent bleeding post tonsillectomy for subanalysis. RESULTS: Of 5400 single centre tonsillectomies, 234 (4.8%) presented with bleeding and 9 (0.17%) presented with recurrent bleeding. 13 patients in total were treated, 10 surgically...

INTRODUCTION: The comparative contribution to human noise exposure from the vehicular radio is unknown, as are the radio volume preferences of different generations when driving an automobile. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A single vehicle was used to measure radio listening level in decibels of three generations (age 16-17 years, age 32-50 years, and age 51-73 years) in various conditions, ranging from engine off with windows closed to 60 miles per hour (mph) with windows open...

INTRODUCTION: Branchio-oto-renal (BOR) syndrome is an autosomal dominant genetic disorder characterized by second branchial arch anomalies, hearing impairment, and renal malformations. Pathogenic mutations have been discovered in several genes such as EYA1, SIX5, and SIX1. However, nearly half of those affected reveal no pathogenic variant by traditional genetic testing. METHODS AND MATERIALS: Whole Exome sequencing and/or Sanger sequencing performed in 10 unrelated families from Turkey, Iran, Ecuador, and USA with BOR syndrome in this study...

OBJECTIVES: Globally, newborn hearing screening (NHS) is variably incorporated into national healthcare systems. The authors reviewed the set-up and evolution process of a hospital-based NHS program in South Korea, where screening costs for low-income families are paid by the National Health Authority. METHODS: The NHS process for 13805 newborns delivered in a tertiary referral center of South Korea from 2005 through 2014 was reviewed. Hearing screening was conducted using automated auditory brainstem response (AABR); hearing loss was confirmed by auditory brainstem response for newborns who did not pass the screening test...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the prevalence of pressure equalization tube (PET) placement and hearing loss in children with Down syndrome (DS). MATERIAL AND METHODS: We evaluated 90 DS children births between 1 and 11 years old and compared to 90 children without DS paired in sex and age. Medical records were analyzed consecutively.

BACKGROUND: The use of earmuffs can protect preterm infants against negative effects of high noise levels in the neonatal intensive care unit. This study was aimed at assessing the effectiveness of the earmuffs on the physiologic and behavioral responses in preterm infants. METHODS: A crossed over controlled trial was conducted at Aliasghar Hospital (Tehran, Iran) in 2014. Thirty-six preterm infants cared in closed incubators, 18 cases wore a pair of silicon earmuffs in the first day and the others were worn it at the second day...

Diagnosis of Hartsfield syndrome includes recognition of three distinct clinical anomalies: holoprosencephaly, ectrodactyly, and bilateral cleft-lip and palate syndrome. A family including three male siblings all affected by Hartsfield syndrome presented to our institution for care. An autosomal dominant variant in Fibroblast Growth Factor Receptor 1 (FGFR1) was identified. This report focuses on otorhinolaryngologic manifestationsof Hartsfield syndrome, previously undescribed, including midline defects of holoprosencephaly, bilateral cleft-lip and palate, retrognathia, gastroesophageal reflux disease, external ear anomalies, eustachian tube dysfunction, and midface abnormalities, in addition to multidisciplinary, long-term management strategies...

OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to investigate the effect of blocking Notch signaling by γ-secretase inhibitor (GSI) on allergic rhinitis. METHOD: GSI, N-[N-(3,5-difluorophenacetyl-L-alanyl)]-S-phenylglycine t-butylester (DAPT) was administered to ovalbumin-induced AR mice models intranasally. We observed symptoms of sneezing and nose rubbing. To detect the inflammatory state, the serum OVA-specific-IgE, IFN-γ, IL-4, and IL-5 were analyzed by ELISA, and Th cell cytokines in nasal mucosa were analyzed by RT-PCR, including T-bet, IFN-γ, GATA-3, IL-4, and IL-5...
