Arteries that supply the nasal septum and the lateral nasal wall include vessels that originate from the external carotid artery and from the internal carotid artery. A variety of local endonasal pedicle flaps can be used in different anatomical areas for endoscopic skull base reconstruction. The main flaps are based on terminal branches of the sphenopalatine artery and on anterior ethmoidal artery. This study will describe the anatomy of these vessels and their relationship with the main flaps.

Endoscopic surgery is now standard of care for different Endocrine Disorders; the endoscopic thyroid surgery is becoming more popular and different approaches has been practice by many thyroid surgeon worldwide. Trans-orovestibular approach, based on the principle of natural orifice transluminal surgery is truly scar free thyroid surgery and has minimal dissection. We are presenting here three cases of benign solitary thyroid nodule operated endoscopically through trans-oro-vestibular approach in one male and two female patients...

Esthesioneuroblastomas are rare neuroectodermally derived neoplasms occurring in the upper nasal septum or cribriform plate. They have been rarely reported in other sites, when they are called ectopic esthesioneuroblastomas. Due to the scarcity of reports, publications and molecular/genetic studies of these tumours, their diagnosis is likely to be missed when they are ectopic. Similar to the case report in this journal by Zahedi et al., we had a case of neuroectodermally derived neoplasm of the tonsil, which was difficult to diagnose, due to the site of occurrence being unknown for these tumours...

The WHO has designed a safe surgery checklist to enhance communication and awareness of patient safety during surgery and to minimise complications. WHO recommends that the check-list be evaluated and customised by end users as a tool to promote safe surgery. The aim of present study was to evaluate the impact of WHO safety checklist on patient safety awareness in otorhinolaryngology and to customise it for the speciality. A prospective structured questionnaire based study was done in ENT operating room for duration of 1 month each for cases, before and after implementation of safe surgery checklist...

The aim of this study is to evaluate the role of bleomycin as a primary mode of nonsurgical treatment in lymphangiomas of head and neck and study their complications. This is a prospective study of 8 patients diagnosed with lymphangioma of head and neck presenting to ENT department of Tata main Hospital from December 2014 to January 2017. They were clinically and radiologically evaluated and treated with intralesional injection of bleomycin diluted in normal saline. Complete resolution was seen in 62.5% (5/8) of patients, 25% (2/8) had good response while 12...

Type II diabetic mellitus (DM) is a chronic metabolic disease that impairs normal insulin production and glucose transport to the liver and muscles. In the India, about 1-5% population suffer from diabetes or related complication. So there is need to cure this disease. DM chronic auditory complications may include spiral ganglia atrophy, degeneration of the vestibulocochlear nerve myelin sheath, reduction of the number of spiral lamina nerve fibres, and thickening of the capillary walls of the stria vascularis and small arteries...

Local treatment with corticosteroids results in side effects involving the upper respiratory tract including candidiasis, sore throat, and dysphonia. Although these effects are well known, they have not been evaluated using a histopathological approach. This study investigated the histopathological aspects of steroid-induced dysphonia. A total of 16 female Wistar albino rats were divided into two groups. The eight rats in the experimental group were given an inhaled dose of mometasone furoate daily for 4 weeks...

Various studies have demonstrated that the lymphatic system is the additional route for solid tumor metastasis. Lymph nodes metastasis in Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) is a major prognostic indicator for disease progression and a guide for therapeutic strategies. We conducted a study to compare intratumoral (IT) and peritumoral (PT) lymphatic vessel density (LVD) in HNSCC using lymphatic marker D2-40 and its correlation with lymph node metastasis, histological grading and other clinicopathological parameters...

Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leakages of the temporal bone may arise during mastoid surgery. The leakages can have multiple potential etiologies, for instance, using a cutting burr near the bony tegmen or monopolar electrocautery on the surface of the dura mater. In this paper, we introduced an effective and simple technique for the management of CSF leakages of the temporal bone. In a prospective case series, 36 patients (16 males and 20 females) who have had an experience of incidental or inevitable CSF otorrhea or otorhinorrhea during temporal bone surgery were selected...

The aim of this study is to evaluate the efficacy and safety of prolonged therapy with low-dose clarithromycin in patients with chronic rhinosinusitis with polyps (CRSwP) after endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS). A total of 10 patients with CRSwP were identified and subjected to bilateral ESS. In post-operative patients they were treated with nasal wash with saline solution and steroid sprays (beclomethasone). During follow-up, after 30-40 days after the operation (M = 35.4 SD = +4.33), patients reported a worsening of symptoms with onset of nasal obstruction; reduction/loss of smell; headache; onset of viscous secretions and therefore all patients continued therapy with saline nasal irrigation, topical steroid therapy and started macrolide (clarithromycin 500 mg/pill: 1 pill/day for 3 days a week for 1 month)...

Role of high resolution computerized tomography (HRCT) of temporal bone is established in cases of atticoantral chronic suppurative otitis media (CSOM) with intracranial complications. Routine use of HRCT in management of patients of atticoantral CSOM without intracranial complications has been an issue of debate. The aim of this study was to evaluate the routine use of HRCT of temporal bone in such cases. This study was a prospective study done at LG hospital, AMC MET Medical College, Ahmedabad to evaluate and compare the temporal bone findings in HRCT and intraoperative findings in 100 patients with atticoantral CSOM...

The loss of a portion or the totality of the nose has great relevance on the perception of the beauty of a face and can result in a catastrophic quality of life impairment. Several surgical techniques are currently available for the reconstruction of the nasal pyramid. However, there are very few nasal reconstruction quality evaluation protocols that allow the surgeon to choose objectively the best technique for each kind of defects. Six total nasal reconstruction performed in University of Sassari Maxillofacial Unit were evaluated with a protocol that investigate objectively and subjectively the surgical aesthetic and functional outcome...

The uncommon ear tumor of middle ear squamous cell carcinoma (MESCC) is thought to be associated with the history of long-term chronic otitis media in the most cases. The main etiologic factor of MESCC is still unclear and may be multifactorial. Infections of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) and Human Papillomavirus (HPV) are considered as one of the etiologic factor of MESCC. Previous studies have shown that the EBV and HPV have been detected in MESCC. Although the EBV and HPV have been implicated in human malignancies, their roles in pathogenesis of MESCC have not been elucidated...

This study aims to assess the frequency and the profile of hearing loss among patients with primary Sjögren's syndrome in a tertiary care hospital in India and to look for an association between hearing loss and immunological parameters (anti-SSA antibody, anti-SSB antibody, anticardiolipin antibodies, complements C3 and C4). This prospective observational study was done from January 2011 to October 2011 on consecutive patients diagnosed with primary Sjögren's syndrome in our tertiary care hospital. All patients underwent a puretone audiogram, tympanogram and acoustic reflex testing...
