Andrea Ricci-Maccarini, Giuseppe Bergamini, Rolando Fustos
Videolaryngostroboscopy is a useful investigation required for a correct diagnosis of laryngeal diseases and voice disorders. We present a form for the collection of basic laryngostroboscopic findings, which provides for the evaluation of the classical six parameters codified by Hirano (symmetry and periodicity of glottic vibration, glottic closure, profile of vocal fold edge, amplitude of vocal fold vibration, mucosal wave) and six other parameters which we have included in the form for an essential and complete laryngostroboscopic evaluation (supraglottic framework behaviour, seat of phonatory vibration, vocal fold morphology and motility, level of the vocal fold, stops of vocal fold mucosa vibration)...

Djamil Semdaie, Fabienne Haroun, Odile Casiraghi, François Bidault, Stéphane Temam, François Janot, Philippe Gorphe
PURPOSE: Retrospective studies have shown that tracheotomy prior to total laryngectomy (TL) is associated with decreased survival. We sought to investigate whether this is due to higher local invasiveness associated with obstructive disease or whether it is the result of tracheotomy itself. METHODS: We reviewed patients with a T4a (AJCC 7th edition) laryngeal squamous-cell carcinoma treated with a primary TL followed by adjuvant radiotherapy between 2001 and 2013...

Although relatively rare, polymorphous adenocarcinoma (PAC) is likely the second most common malignancy of the minor salivary glands (MiSG). The diagnosis is mainly based on an incisional biopsy. The optimal treatment comprises wide surgical excision, often with adjuvant radiotherapy. In general, PAC has a good prognosis. Previously, PAC was referred to as polymorphous low-grade adenocarcinoma (PLGA), but the new WHO classification of salivary gland tumours has also included under the PAC subheading, the so-called cribriform adenocarcinoma of minor salivary glands (CAMSG)...

PURPOSE: Microvessel density (MVD) corresponds to the intensity of neo-angiogenesis. MVD assessments are based on the expression levels of the vascular endothelium markers such as, e.g., CD34 or CD105. The goal of this study was to assess MVD among patients with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC), and to evaluate the predictive value of MVD in head and neck cancers. METHODS: The study included 49 patients treated for HNSCC and 11 patients with dysplasia of the upper respiratory tract epithelium...

PURPOSE: Patients with the feeling of a congested nose not always suffer from an anatomical obstruction but might just have a low trigeminal sensibility, which prevents them from perceiving the nasal airstream. We examined whether intermittent trigeminal stimulation increases sensitivity of the nasal trigeminal nerve and whether this effect is accompanied by subjective improvement of nasal breathing. METHOD: Thirty-five patients (Mage  = 58.4 years; SD = 14...

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) and confocal laser scanning microscopy (CLSM) are light-based imaging techniques that allow for a visualization of microscopic tissue properties in vivo. Our study was to examine whether they allow for differentiation of inverted papilloma (IP) from nasal polyps (NP). Five cases of IP and NP, respectively, were investigated intraoperatively with OCT and CLSM. Biopsies were taken of the investigated area and were analyzed ex vivo with OCT and CLSM and then underwent HE-staining for standard light microscopy...

PURPOSE: Acute edema of the head and neck region may lead to life-threatening dyspnea and require quick and targeted treatment. They can be subdivided in bradykinin- and histamine-mediated swellings, which require treatment with different classes of pharmaceuticals. Clinical pathways for differential diagnoses do not exist so far, although it is known that early treatment is decisive for faster symptom relief and reduced expression of the swellings. Aim of the study was the creation of a clinical algorithm for identification of bradykinin-mediated angioedema...
