Testicular cancer is the most frequent malignant disease in young males between 15 and 35 years. Platinum based chemotherapy regimen is the therapy of choice in advanced disease. This treatment has also adverse effects caused by the cytostatic active substances, such as olfactory dysfunctions. The aim of this study was, therefore, to monitor olfactory function of testicular cancer patients during and 6 months after chemotherapy. A total of 17 patients (mean age 31.06 ± 10.26 years), which underwent chemotherapy (mean 2...

The aim of this study was to assess patients' satisfaction based on gender and age using the Rhinoplasty Outcomes Evaluation (ROE) post-rhinoplasty from both functional and aesthetic outcomes. The study design was a prospective observational study. A total of 103 patients who underwent Rhinoplasty were prospectively investigated from January 2011 through December 2013 at King Abdulaziz University Hospital in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The sample included 61 males (59.2%) and 42 females (40.7%). The overall mean age was (25...

Evaluating gender differences in pathogens involving sinonasal tract disease in patients undergoing nasal surgery for chronic and recurrent rhinosinusitis (C/R RS). Retrospective analysis of 164 positive sinonasal swab cultures taken during endoscopic sinonasal surgery between the years 2006 and 2013. Study population included 79 (48.8%) female patients and 84 (51/2%) males with a mean age of 47.3 (13-88) years. Positive Staphylococcal growth was found in 38 (23.2%) patients, positive anaerobic growth in 25 (15...

The aim of this study was to present our experiences with patients operated on for the recurrence of papillary thyroid cancer with the combined use of preoperative ultrasonographic mapping and radioguided occult lesion localization (ROLL). Twenty patients who had already undergone total thyroidectomy and central/lateral neck dissection for papillary thyroid carcinoma were reoperated on due to locoregional metastasis. The patients with proven recurrences and high Tg wash-out levels in cytopathologic aspirates were operated on...

The aim of this study is to compare the total antioxidant status (TAS), total oxidant status (TOS), and paraoxonase (PON1) serum levels in patients who have undergone septoplasty (NSD). Forty-six patients (mean age 33.7) aged between 18 and 50 years who were diagnosed with nasal septal deviation (NSD) were included in the study. The TAS, TOS, and PON1 levels were compared in the serum samples obtained 1 month before the septoplasty and 3 months after surgery. There was a significant increase in mean TAS after septoplasty (1...

Follicular variant papillary thyroid carcinoma (FVPTC) may pose a diagnostic challenge due to higher likelihood of lower risk cytology compared to conventional papillary thyroid carcinoma (CPTC). Recent guidelines have recommended the use of sonographic features to guide decisions to biopsy thyroid nodules. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the sonographic features of CPTC and FVPTC. This is a retrospective study design done in an Academic teaching hospital setting. Preoperative ultrasounds of 79 patients with conventional CPTC (48) and FVPTC (31) were reviewed by a radiologist blinded to histological diagnosis...

Peripheral paralysis of the facial nerve is the most frequent of all cranial nerve disorders. Despite advances in facial surgery, the functional and aesthetic reconstruction of a paralyzed face remains a challenge. Graduated minimally invasive facial reanimation is based on a modular principle. According to the patients' needs, precondition, and expectations, the following modules can be performed: temporalis muscle transposition and facelift, nasal valve suspension, endoscopic brow lift, and eyelid reconstruction...

The aim of this study was to examine the efficacy of methylprednisolone in vestibular neuritis (VN) by objective and subjective measures. This prospective controlled randomized study was conducted at one tertiary hospital. Twenty-nine VN patients were randomized to either the steroid (n = 15) or the control (n = 14) group. The steroid group received methylprednisolone for 2 weeks, whereas control patients did not; both groups underwent regular vestibular exercises and were prescribed a Ginkgo biloba...

The objective of this study is to evaluate the strength of content validity within the facial dysfunction domain of the Penn Acoustic Neuroma Quality-of-Life (PANQOL) Scale and to compare how it correlates with a facial dysfunction-specific QOL instrument (Facial Clinimetric Evaluation, FaCE). The study design is online questionnaire survey. Members of the British Acoustic Neuroma Association received both PANQOL questionnaires and the FaCE scale. 158 respondents with self-identified facial paralysis or dysfunction had completed PANQOL and FaCE data sets for analysis...

Perineural spread adenoid cystic carcinoma can alter the dimension of foramina and canals of the skull base. The objective of this study was to determine the range of normal variation of the foramina and canals of both hemicranium. We analyzed 200 individuals with no alterations of the skull base in a retrospective manner using high-resolution computed tomography. We measured the short and long axis diameters of the foramen rotundum (FR), foramen ovale (FO), stylomastoid foramen (SMF), pterygoid canal (PTC), internal auditory canal (IAC), and the facial nerve canal in its labyrinthine portion (LPFC) to calculate the area in each hemicranium, compare them and obtain the normal range of asymmetry...

The objective of this study is to evaluate the diagnostic value of combination of artificial neural networks (ANN) and support vector machine (SVM)-based CAD systems in differentiating malignant from benign thyroid nodes with gray-scale ultrasound images. Two morphological and 65 texture features extracted from regions of interest in 610 2D-ultrasound thyroid node images from 543 patients (207 malignant, 403 benign) were used to develop the ANN and SVM models. Tenfold cross validation evaluated their performance; the best models showed accuracy of 99% for ANN and 100% for SVM...

This study evaluated the necessity of examining the upper airway in children with nocturnal enuresis. 225 children (aged 5-16 years), who were referred from the urology outpatient clinic between May 2015 and May 2016 and who had completed toilet training, were included in this study. Participants were separated into monosymptomatic nocturnal enuresis (MNE) (group 1) and without MNE (group 2) groups. Tonsil hypertrophy, adenoid vegetation, septal deviation, turbinate hypertrophy, allergic rhinitis, upper airway obstruction, and snoring etiology were assessed...

Radiotherapy associated with cetuximab (Cet-RT) is an alternative treatment to platinum-based chemoradiotherapy in locally advanced head and neck carcinoma (LAHNC). Reviews suggest that the use of cetuximab is associated with poorer tolerance in patients unfit for chemotherapy than in pivotal trial. We retrospectively studied patients first treated by Cet-RT for LAHNC presenting contraindications to chemoradiotherapy. Objectives were treated population description, acute tolerance, progression-free survival (PFS), overall survival (OS), and 3-month clinical response...

Thyroid carcinoma usually presents as a neck lump. Distant metastasis as the sole initial manifestation of well-differentiated thyroid carcinoma (WDTC) is rare and little is known about these patients. The aim of this study is to characterize patients who present with distant metastasis as the sole initial manifestation of WDTC. Retrospective review of case records of WDTC seen at the National Cancer Centre Singapore from 2002 to 2015 was performed. Patients with no prior complaint of neck swelling and whose first presentation was distant metastatic WDTC were included...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the international literature for studies reporting outcomes for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) in children undergoing isolated tongue surgeries. METHODS: Two authors searched from inception through November 14, 2016 in four databases including PubMed/MEDLINE. RESULTS: 351 studies were screened. Eleven studies (116 children) met criteria. Most children were syndromic and had craniofacial disorders, co-morbidities, or other serious medical issues...
