Yong Won Lee, Yong Ho Park
Spontaneous temporomandibular joint (TMJ) herniation is the entity of protrusion of the retrodiscal contents of the TMJ into the external auditory canal (EAC) through a persistent Huschke's foramen. There have been a number of reports of spontaneous TMJ herniation, but there are no reports of bilateral symptomatic TMJ herniation. We report a case of a 70-year-old man who complained of a crunching sound in both ears during mastication. Examination showed bulging from the anterosuperior wall of the EAC on each side when the patient opened his mouth, which pushed the tympanic membrane medially...

For locally advanced laryngeal cancers, the standard treatment of choice is chemoradiotherapy if organ function needs to be conserved. Surgical treatment with larynx preservation is conducted only for limited cases. For locally advanced laryngeal cancers such as those with vocal cord fixation and/or cricoid cartilage destruction, there is no apparent standardized organ-preserving surgery keeping the essential laryngeal functions, viz. the airway, deglutition and articulation, uncompromized. Recently, our surgical team saw a patient with T4a advanced laryngeal cancer with vocal cord fixation who aspired to maintain his laryngeal function...

OBJECTIVE: Cancers found in the resected branchial cleft cyst are rare clinically but usually impose substantive diagnostic and treatment challenges for clinicians. METHODS: A 31-year-old man presented with a lateral neck mass that was suspected to be an inflammatory branchial cleft cyst. After excision, the pathologic specimen revealed a benign cystic appearance with a focus of undifferentiated carcinoma. Serologic tests for Epstein-Barr virus were negative. A positron emission tomography scan and upper aerodigestive tract endoscopies were negative for any other suspicious lesion...

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study is to examine therapeutic effect of the combination of radiotherapy and ozone which features increasing of the destruction of cancer cells by increasing oxygen level of the body on advanced tongue cancer induced in rats. METHODS: A total of 36 female rats were included in this study as 4 groups. Group 1 (Cancer, n=8): 4NQO. Group 2 (Cancer+Radiotherapy, n=10): 4NQO+Radiotherapy. Group 3 (Cancer+Ozone+Radiotherapy, n=10): 4NQO+Ozone+Radiotherapy...

OBJECTIVE: To present the efficacy of Japanese-traditional medicine (Kampo) for a case with vascular malformation. METHODS: A case study and literature review. PATIENT: A 62-year-old female presented with dysphagia and spitting blood. Esophagogastroduodenoscopy showed a longitudinal lobulated and septated mass in the posterior pharynx. On MR imaging, the mass showed hyperintensity on T2-weighted images and heterogeneous enhancement on Gadlinium-enhanced T1-weighted images, suggestive of a low-flow vascular malformation...

OBJECTIVE: Although hemangiomas are common lesions of the head and neck, sinonasal hemangiomas are rare. The purpose of this study was to analyze the clinical features (sex, age, symptoms, and size and anatomical location of the lesion) and the histological findings of sinonasal hemangioma cases, to assess preoperative transarterial embolization, and to evaluate the outcome (recurrence or no recurrence) of endoscopic sinus surgery. METHODS: Clinical records of 31 patients who underwent endoscopic sinus surgery for resection of sinonasal hemangioma between January 2010 and June 2015 were retrospectively reviewed...

OBJECTIVE: Primary mucosal malignant melanoma of the head and neck (HN-PMMM) is an aggressive and uncommon neoplasm. Herein, we present a series of 33 patients and the results of treatment, and aimed to determine prognostic factors in HN-PMMM. METHODS: Patients who were diagnosed as having HN-PMMM in our reference hospital, between 2005 and 2014 were evaluated. Thirty-three of these patients who had follow-up data were included. Surgical margin status was extracted from the original pathology reports...

OBJECTIVE: Zuckerkandl's tubercle (ZT), when present, is an anatomical landmark by which surrounding structures such as the recurrent laryngeal nerve (RLN) can be identified intraoperatively. This study aimed to investigate the prevalence and anatomical characteristics of Zuckerkandl's tubercle by combining cadaveric dissection with a meta-analysis. METHODS: Through October 2016, an extensive search of PubMed, CNKI, ScienceDirect, EMBASE, BIOSIS, SciELO, and Web of Science was completed...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this paper would be to describe the first case series of exclusive transcanal endoscopic approach to treat lesions with limited extension at the suprageniculate fossa. This endoscopic approach allowed a complete removal of suprageniculate disesases with low complication rates using a minimally invasive surgical route. METHODS: This is a retrospective chart analysis and a surgery video recording review of these patients were performed in August 2015...

Here we present an extremely rare case of giant infantile hemangiopericytoma (HPC) of the tongue diagnosed prenatally by fetal ultrasonography and MR imaging. Due to airway stenosis, the patient was delivered by the ex utero intrapartum treatment (EXIT) procedure at 36 weeks of pregnancy. Initial diagnosis was infantile hemangioma based on physical examination, diagnostic imaging and the high incidence of hemangioma. The tumor was resistant to conservative treatments. Due to severe tumor hemorrhage, the nutrient vessel was embolized by endovascular treatment on the 73th day after birth...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to investigate the potential impact of multiple preoperative and intraoperative variables on the outcome of partial cricotracheal resection and tracheal resection anastomosis (PCTR/TRA). METHODS: The study was conducted on 35 consecutive patients of grade III and IV upper tracheal stenosis with or without subglottic involvement. The indication of PCTR/TRA was post intubation stenosis in all patients. Overall complications (major and minor) occurred in 18 patients...

Obstructive sialadenitis of the submandibular gland is commonly caused by sialoliths, but more rarely by foreign body-induced sialoliths. Here, we report minimally invasive sialendoscopic removal of fish bone-induced sialoliths in the duct of the submandibular gland. A 43-year-old woman presented with recurrent swelling of the right submandibular gland at other hospital. Computed tomography (CT) showed an 8-mm linear calcification in the posterior part of Wharton's duct. The lesion was deemed difficult to remove and she was followed up...

OBJECTIVE: Although second branchial cleft fistula (BCF) can be well treated with surgical excision, neck scarring is unavoidable. We previously reported chemocauterization with trichloroacetic acid (TCA) to close various fistulas. Here, we report chemocauterization of a second BCF without a consequent incision scar. METHODS: This procedure was applied in four pediatric patients whose parents were reluctant to undergo surgical excision for a second BCF. Under general anesthesia, a thin metal suction tip or cut down tube was inserted through the skin opening...

OBJECTIVE: The mouse is the most popular animal model in olfactory research. Behavior tests with odorants are essential for determining olfactory phenotype. To the best of our knowledge, the mouse olfactory behavior test has not been standardized, making the results vulnerable to inter-observer variation. We sought to develop a new mouse olfactory behavior test assessed by an automatic video tracking system with minimal inter-observer variation. METHODS: A video-tracking system was used to automatically track mouse behavior in standard breeding cages with C57BL/6N mice...

OBJECTIVE: To study volume characteristics of the maxillary, sphenoid and frontal sinuses among healthy Caucasians adults, using computed tomography (CT) scans. METHODS: A retrospective, case series study in a single academic center, CT scans of 201 consecutive adult subjects, performed between January and September 2014, were reviewed for the volume and dimensions of the paranasal sinuses. Patients with documented sinus pathology or lack of pneumatization were excluded...

OBJECTIVE: The involvement of the dura is a rare yet potentially life-threatening complication during cholesteatoma surgery. Thus, the knowledge about treatment and consequences of this issue is of great importance to every ear surgeon. METHODS: This retrospective study analyzed the dura involvement with regard to the type of defect, reconstruction method used, and the post-operative complications of 1291 pediatric and adult cholesteatoma surgeries performed at an academic tertiary care center over a twelve-year period...
