INTRODUCTION: Laryngomalacia (LM) is the first cause of stridor in infants. 10 to 20% of patients with LM may require surgery due to the development of severe symptoms. Supraglottoplasty is the most commonly performed surgery for severe LM. However, it is insufficient for the rostrocaudal displacement of the epiglottis against the posterior pharyngeal wall. CASE SUMMARY: We report a case of a 2-month-old infant with severe laryngomalacia with a remarkable collapse of the epiglottis towards the glottis with secondary obstruction of the airway, alteration in swallowing and failure to thrive...

INTRODUCTION: Chronic invasive fungal rhinosinusitis (CIFR) is a rare entity generally observed in immunodepressed subjects. The pathogen most frequently identified is Aspergillus spp. Imaging generally reveals invasive pseudoneoplastic features. We report a case of Scedosporium apiospermum (S. apiospermum) CIFR with an atypical clinical and radiological presentation. CASE REPORT: A 72-year-old immunocompetent man presented with chronic headache, neck pain and bilateral limitation of lateral gaze...

OBJECTIVES: Nasal obstruction is a highly subjective symptom. It can be evaluated by combining clinical examination, imaging and functional measurements such as active anterior rhinomanometry (AAR). In pediatrics, AAR is often impossible because it requires the participation of the child. Airflow modeling by Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) has been developed since the early 1990s, mostly in adults. This study is the first to describe a methodology of "numerical rhinomanometry" in children using CFD and to evaluate the feasibility and the clinical interest of this new tool...

OBJECTIVE: The study objective was to determine risk factors for severity of juvenile-onset recurrent respiratory papillomatosis (RRP) at first endoscopic evaluation. METHODS: Based on a review of all cases undergoing surgery for juvenile-onset RRP in two pediatric otolaryngology departments in the USA and France, the following severity risk factors were analyzed: number of laryngeal levels involved, extension to the subglottis, and bilateral involvement. RESULTS: Thirty-two patients were included, with 571 endoscopic procedures...

OBJECTIVES/HYPOTHESIS: The retrolingual space is one of the potential sites of obstruction identified in patients with obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS). Hypertrophied lingual tonsils (LT) can obstruct the airway at this level. The goal of this study was to measure the tolerance and efficacy of lingual tonsillectomy in patients with OSAS. STUDY DESIGN: A retrospective chart review was conducted recruiting all patients with OSAS confirmed on sleep recording, who either had failed or refused medical treatment and who underwent lingual tonsillectomy...

BACKGROUND: In oncology, multi-disciplinary team meetings improve overall survival and reduce time to treatment in head and neck cancer. Interestingly, no study has examined the experience of patients attending an MTM. The present study addressed two questions: Does the MTM cause anxiety/depression for patients who are present? Are patients satisfied at the end of the meeting? PATIENTS AND METHODS: The study included all patients attending an MTM, who agreed to participate in the study and who fully completed two questionnaires...

OBJECTIVES: Osteoradionecrosis (ORN) of the mandible is a common complication of head and neck radiotherapy and often requires surgical treatment. Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) can be exceptionally discovered within zones of ORN on histological examination of the operative specimen. The authors discuss the management of these lesions based on a short patient series. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This single-centre retrospective study was based on patients managed between 2012 and 2014 for ORN with incidental discovery of microscopic SCC...

Vocal fold paralysis in adduction can result in significant breathing difficulties. Techniques such as vocal fold lateralization and/or arytenoidopexy help to improve respiratory function in this setting. These techniques require open approach or specific instruments. The authors describe an original vocal fold lateralization technique performed exclusively via an endoscopic approach. This technique helps to enlarge the glottic aperture, while preserving laryngeal architecture, and permanently improves respiratory function in patients with vocal fold paralysis in adduction...

INTRODUCTION: Patients with MERRF syndrome (Myoclonic Epilepsy with Ragged Red Fibres) usually present with encephalomyopathy. However, progressive, recurrent cervicothoracic lipomatosis may be rarely observed. CASE REPORT: The authors report 4 cases of MERRF syndrome associated with lipomatosis. In 3 patients, the diagnosis of MERRF syndrome was established on the basis of the clinical features of the lipomas and clinical interview revealing a personal or family history of lipomas and myopathy...

INTRODUCTION: General practitioners (GPs) play an essential role in the management of ear disease, but their diagnosis of pathologic eardrums is inadequate. The aim of this study was to compare the quality of otoscopic diagnosis by GPs using a conventional otoscope versus a video-otoscope. Subjects and method Eleven GPs included 124 patients with ear complaints (193 otoscopies). Examination successively used conventional otoscopy and video-otoscopy. After each type of examination, a 10-criterion assessment questionnaire was filled out and a diagnosis was proposed...

OBJECTIVES: As part of the 2014-2019 cancer plan and in order to improve our knowledge of work-related cancers, we analysed the work-related laryngeal cancer risk situations identified in the French national occupational disease surveillance and prevention network (rnv3p) from 2001 to 2016. MATERIAL AND METHODS: This study focused on cases of work-related laryngeal cancer, which the expert physician considered to be directly related to exposure (intermediate or strong causal relationship)...

OBJECTIVE: Circumferential pharyngolaryngectomy is performed for advanced pharyngeal tumor or in a context of postradiation recurrence. Several free or pedicle flaps have been described for pharyngeal defect reconstruction, with choice at the surgeon's discretion. The aim of this study was to evaluate long-term swallowing function according to the type of flap used for reconstruction. MATERIAL AND METHOD: A multicenter retrospective study was conducted from January to September 2016 within the French GETTEC head and neck tumor study group...

Pituitary surgery is performed via a transsphenoidal approach in the vast majority of cases according to various methods that have changed over the years. A microscopic transseptal approach via a sublabial mucosal incision or a nasal mucosal incision has also been extensively used. An endoscopic transnasal approach was first described in the 1990's, followed by the concept of a microscopic transseptal approach and an endoscopic strictly endonasal approach. We use an entirely endoscopic transseptal transsphenoidal approach via an incision in the nasal mucosa for both access and tumour resection...
