#1
Atsumori Hamahata, Takeshi Beppu, Takashi Yamaki, Hiroyuki Sakurai
Differentiated thyroid carcinoma is not highly malignant, and thus surgical resection is the most common treatment even if the carcinoma has invaded the trachea. Although some cases exist in which the carcinoma invades the trachea, using the tracheal window resection method allows complete resection of the carcinoma. Yet these patients must often control a large tracheocutaneous wound until reconstructive surgery is performed because such surgery occurs secondarily. Our hospital admitted three patients for which tracheally invasive, differentiated thyroid carcinoma was surgically resected...

OBJECTIVE: Many studies over the last decade showed favorable outcomes with intratympanic (IT) steroid treatment, alone as salvage treatment or in combination with conventional systemic therapy (ST). However, in severe to profound sensorineural hearing loss resistant to ST, the optimal infusion mode, the type and concentration of the solution, the preferable drug, its total amount, and the duration and fractionation of the treatment are still debated. Aim of the study was to investigate the feasibility and the outcomes of a direct and constant IT delivery of dexamethasone (DEX) by means of a new indwelling catheter...

We herein present three cases of abnormally expanded frontal sinuses (pneumoceles) with severe infection in patients with mental retardation and brain atrophy. Two patients previously underwent laryngotracheal separation surgery, and bacteriological examinations of purulent nasal discharge revealed infections caused by drug-resistant bacteria such as Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Acinetobacter baumannii. As conservative medical treatments were ineffective, all three patients were treated by computed tomography-guided endoscopic sinus surgery...

Plexiform schwannoma (PS) is a rare variety of benign nerve sheath tumor characterized by a multinodular plexiform growth pattern. PS is usually confined to the head and neck or skin. The pre-operative diagnosis of PS is difficult, and this has lead to a common misdiagnosis as a schwannoma. In addition, studies have indicated that an incomplete resection of PS often results in tumor recurrence. Here we describe a rare case of PS presented in the parapharyngeal space. Our case involved a 36-year-old man with swelling of the pharynx, who presented with a soft cervical mass...

OBJECTIVE: Phosphorylcholine (PC) is a structural component of a wide variety of pathogens including Streptococcus pneumoniae and Haemophilus influenzae. Here, the immune response in mice to PC immunization via the sublingual (SL) route versus the intranasal (IN) route was investigated in terms of efficacy and safety. METHODS: BALB/c mice were immunized with PC-keyhole limpet hemocyanin (KLH) plus cholera toxin (CT) or CT alone via the IN or SL route. The immune response generated was studied in terms of PC-specific antibody titers, interferon (IFN)-γ and interleukin (IL)-4 production by CD4(+) T cells, and cross-reactivity of PC-specific immunoglobulin (Ig)-A antibodies in nasal washes against S...

OBJECTIVE: Experiments in humans and animals indicate that vestibular influx through vestibular sympathetic reflex is an important and vital part of the regulatory system of circulation. The otolith organ adjusts the circulatory responses through the vestibular sympathetic reflex during an upright stance and may trigger a vasovagal attack of syncope. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the prevalence and association of syncope attacks among patients with Ménière's disease (MD)...

In endoscopic laryngo-pharyngeal surgery (ELPS), a rigid curved laryngo-pharyngoscope, which was invented by Dr. Sato et al., is necessary to obtain excellent surgical view of both hypopharynx and even the entrance of the esophagus. We have used this instrument for the examination and treatment of several diseases other than cancer located in the hypopharynx, such as difficult-to-find buried fish bones, retropharyngeal abscess, and congenital pyriform sinus fistula. In the result, we could acquire better view of hypopharynx and completed the intended procedure safely, especially for uncovering difficult-to-find fish bone buried in the mucosa...

OBJECTIVE: We examined plastic changes in the vestibulo-ocular reflex (VOR) during low-frequency vertical head rotation, a condition under which otolith inputs from the vestibular system are essential for VOR generation. METHODS: For adaptive conditioning of the vertical VOR, 0.02Hz sinusoidal pitch rotation for one hour about the earth's horizontal axis was synchronized with out-of-phase vertical visual stimulation from a random dot pattern. RESULTS: A vertical VOR was well evoked when the upright animal rotated around the earth-horizontal axis (EHA) at low frequency due to the changing gravity stimulus and dynamic stimulation of the otoliths...

Internal auditory canal anomalies are rare. Narrow internal auditory canal is believed to occur as a result of aplasia or hypoplasia of the vestibulocochlear nerve. Narrow duplication of the internal auditory canal is considered to be very rare. Narrow duplication of the internal auditory canal with inner ear malformation has been reported in only 3 cases. We present 2 cases of narrow duplication of the internal auditory canal with inner ear malformation. The first case had inner ear malformation on only one side and the second case had inner ear malformation on both sides...

REVIEW

Cochrane reviews indicate there is very limited support for all forms of sound therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy has the strongest support. American Academy of Otolaryngology (AAO) recently published some guidelines which recommends Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for tinnitus intervention, and only indicates that sound therapy should be considered an "option" for intervention. Nevertheless, acoustic therapy could lead to cause changes in the tinnitus perception and has been appreciated by the affected people for years...
