OBJECTIVE: In this retrospective study the aim of the authors was to examine the effect of gentamicin on the individual semicircular canals after low dose, single injection intratympanal gentamicin therapy in Meniere's disease. METHODS: Data of 32 patients treated between 2011 and 2015 were collected. The high frequency, high acceleration vestibuloocular reflex (VOR) gain was measured in the individual semicircular canals using video head impulse test immediately before the first intratympanal gentamicin instillation and approximately two months later...

OBJECTIVE: After 20 years of experience with different types of middle ear implants, we analyzed our database about the Vibrant Soundbridge (VSB) to know the rate of complications, the effect on the residual hearing and the audiometric gain in our center. METHOD: The study was retrospective and included all VSB implants bound to the long process of the incus in our tertiary medical center between january 1999 and february 2015. We observed the effect of surgery on residual hearing by comparing bone and air conduction thresholds before and after implantation...

OBJECTIVE: The Objective of this study was to assess the practicality of the cholesteatoma staging system proposed by the Japan Otological Society (JOS) for acquired middle ear cholesteatoma (the 2010 JOS staging system). METHODS: Between 2009 and 2010, 446 ears with retraction pocket cholesteatoma underwent primary surgery at 6 institutions in Japan. The extent of cholesteatoma was surgically confirmed, and classified into three stages. RESULTS: The cholesteatoma affected the pars flaccida in 325 ears (73%), the pars tensa in 100 ears (22%), and both regions combined in 21 ears (5%)...

OBJECTIVE: To examine endolymphatic hydrops (EH) using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in patients with definite Ménière's disease (MD) and those with nonotological diseases. METHODS: We studied 32 patients with unilateral MD, 10 patients with bilateral MD and 21 patients with control ears who had other benign diseases not associated with hearing or vestibular dysfunction. The mean age of the subjects was 54.0 years (range 27-74) in the MD group and 56.1 years (range 24-79) in the control group...

OBJECTIVE: The invasiveness of papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC), including the occurrence of cervical lymph node metastasis, is the main determining factors contributing to recurrence and poor prognosis. Laminin 332 is a glycoprotein involved in cell migration and cancer cell invasion into surrounding tissues and is therefore related to poor prognosis in many cancers. Here, we investigated the expression and role of laminin 332 in PTC and examine the possibility that laminin 332 could be involved in the invasiveness of PTC...

OBJECTIVES: Unilateral cochlear damage has profound effects on the central auditory pathways in the brain. METHODS: We examined the effects of unilateral cochlear ablation on VGLUT1 expression in the cochlear nucleus (CN) and the superior olivary complex (SOC) in neonatal rats. RESULTS: VGLUT1 expression in the CN subdivisions (the AVCN, the PVCN and the DCN-deep layers) and the SOC (the MnTB, the LSO and the MSO) ipsilateral to the ablated side was significantly suppressed by unilateral cochlear ablation...

OBJECTIVES: Radiotherapy with cisplatin (Chemoradiotherapy, CRT) has long been one of the standard treatments for head and neck squamous cell cancer (HNSCC). Approval of cetuximab for the treatment of HNSCC has made radiotherapy with cetuximab (Bioradiotherapy, BRT) a new treatment option for HNSCC. Reports of BRT in the Japanese written in English up to now is only the phase II study, though it includes only 22 patients. Also on the nature of the clinical Phase II trial, sampling bias of cases may exist...

OBJECTIVE: Voice disturbance is an important problem after thyroidectomy. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficiency of intraoperative neuromonitoring (IONM) in reducing early phonation change by comparing postoperative voice outcomes. METHODS: The study retrospectively enrolled 68 consecutive female patients who had undergone IONM thyroidectomy for papillary thyroid carcinoma occurring between January 2014 and November 2014. A historical group of 117 similar female patients not receiving IONM thyroidectomy was used as an external control...

OBJECTIVE: Balance function has been reported to be worse in ADHD children than in their normal peers. The present study hypothesized that an improvement in balance could result in better cognitive performance in children with ADHD and concurrent vestibular impairment. This study was designed to evaluate the effects of comprehensive vestibular rehabilitation therapy on the cognitive performance of children with combined ADHD and concurrent vestibular impairment.

OBJECTIVE: Describes a method of dynamic video-endoscopy of the Eustachian tube (ET) orifice at the nasopharynx to quantitatively represent ET component movements during swallowing using a graphic function and analyze their importance to its opening mechanics. METHODS: This was a pilot study of relational event capture using a polar coordinate system applied to trans-nasal video-endoscopic recordings of the ET during 3 swallows in 5 adults. After topical anesthesia of the nose, a 45° telescope was introduced unilaterally and focused on the ipsilateral ET orifice...

OBJECTIVE: This study retrospectively investigated whether polyglycolic acid (PGA) sheet attached to the bone surface using fibrin glue facilitate faster epithelialization of the mastoid bowl after canal wall-down (CWD) tympanoplasty compared to a simple dressing using poly-N-acetyl-glucosamine (Kichin) sheet. MATERIALS AND METHODS: After completion of the CWD tympanoplasty, PGA sheet (n=16, PGA group) with fibrin glue or Kichin sheet (n=38, Kichin group) were placed on the bone surface of the mastoid bowl...

OBJECTIVE: This paper aims to introduce and validate our newly developed snoring detection device to automatically identify the incidence and amplitude of snores using the hysteresis extraction method. METHODS: Thirty patients (16 males and 14 females) with a history of snoring were included in this study. Each patient underwent a conventional polysomnography (PSG). Natural overnight snoring was recorded from each subject using our original snore detection device and an integrated circuit (IC) recorder while the patient slept during PSG...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the clinical and electrophysiological features of facial nerve paralysis (FNP) due to benign temporal bone masses (TBMs) and elucidate its differences as compared with Bell's palsy. METHODS: FNP assessed by the House-Brackmann (HB) grading system and by electroneurography (ENoG) were compared retrospectively. RESULTS: We reviewed 914 patient records and identified 31 patients with FNP due to benign TBMs. Moderate FNP (HB Grades II-IV) was dominant for facial nerve schwannoma (FNS) (n=15), whereas severe FNP (Grades V and VI) was dominant for cholesteatomas (n=8) and hemangiomas (n=3)...
