#1
N Khoueir, B Verillaud, P Herman
INTRODUCTION: The extent of bone exposure is one of the major factors contributing to failure of endoscopic frontal sinusotomy procedures. Double flaps providing cover of exposed bone have already been described for Draf III procedures in a cadavre study using posterior and lateral pedicled nasoseptal flaps. As these flaps overlap on the septal side, they cannot be raised from the same nasal cavity in a Draf IIb procedure. We describe a new technique using 2 local mucoperiosteal flaps raised from the same side to entirely cover the bone margins exposed by Draf IIb frontal sinusotomy...

OBJECTIVES: Although a number of methods have been attempted to improve securing the graft, packing gelfoam in the middle ear cavity cannot be avoided, which could obstruct the tympanic ostium of the Eustachian tube and affect inner ear function. Myringoplasty using tissue adhesive has gained traction because tissue adhesives can effectively stabilise the graft and act as scaffolding to improve the graft uptake. The aim of this prospective study was to explore myringoplasty using cyanoacrylate glue with no packing in the middle ear cavity for the repair of subtotal tympanic membrane (TM) perforations...

During the 2017 IFOS ENT World Congress, an international expert panel was asked to clarify the role of ENT in the diagnosis process of the obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSA) in adults around the world. OSA is a major public health issue throughout the world. OSA is a highly prevalent disease with heavy clinical, social and economical outcomes. This high prevalence raises serious difficulties of diagnosis accessibility if only somnologists are able to confirm OSA diagnosis. First of all, the panellists reviewed the impact of OSA...

GOAL: To analyze the characteristics of adult idiopathic unilateral vocal-fold paralysis. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Retrospective study of diagnostic problems, clinical data and recovery in an inception cohort of 100 adult patients with idiopathic unilateral vocal-fold paralysis (Group A) and comparison with a cohort of 211 patients with isolated non-idiopathic non-traumatic unilateral vocal-fold paralysis (Group B). RESULTS: Diagnostic problems were noted in 24% of cases in Group A: eight patients with concomitant common upper aerodigestive tract infection, five patients with a concomitant condition liable to induce immunodepression and 11 patients in whom a malignant tumor occurred along the path of the ipsilateral vagus and inferior laryngeal nerves or in the ipsilateral paralyzed larynx...

Otitis media with effusion (OME) is a common childhood disease defined as the presence of liquid in the middle ear without signs or symptoms of acute ear infection. Children can be impacted mainly with hearing impairment and/or co-occurring recurrent acute otitis media (AOM) thus requiring treatment. Although many meta-analyses and national guidelines have been issued, management remains difficult to standardize, and use of surgical and medical treatments continue to vary. We convened an international consensus conference as part of the 2017 International Federation of Oto-rhino-laryngological Societies Congress, to identify best practices in OME management...

There is a growing need for evaluation tools allowing the quantification of the outcome after voice surgeries. Since the end of the 1990s, multiple unfruitful attempts have been made to reach a consensus, including the Dejonckere protocol for the European Laryngological Society in 2001. This suggested to perform objective and quantifiable measures in the following domains: perception, acoustic, aerodynamic, self-evaluation by the patient and videolaryngostroboscopy. But in a PubMed® search with the keywords "Voice Assessment" and "Voice Outcome" since 2001 retrieving 452 articles, only 33 of them were using methods taking into account the first four dimensions proposed by Dejonckere...

Distal anastomosis by tubed free flap is one of the main technical difficulties encountered during hypopharyngeal reconstruction. Although high flap survival probability can be achieved by experienced surgical teams, two complications are commonly observed at the flap-oesophagus junction: fistula and stenosis. Use of a circular stapler reduced the frequency of these complications by ensuring a perfectly circular and resistant suture line. Salivary stent placement is therefore unnecessary, allowing earlier resumption of feeding...

Sudden sensorineural hearing loss (SSNHL) is a common and alarming symptom that often prompts an urgent visit to an ENT specialist. Treatment of SSNHL remains one of the most problematic issues for contemporary otorhinolaryngology: although many meta-analyses and national guidelines have been issued, management is not standardized in terms of medical treatment, and duration and route of administration. We present several methodological suggestions for the study of treatments for SSNHL. These were developed from the existing level of evidence of the main treatments used in SSNHL by experts who convened at the IFOS 2017 ENT World Congress in Paris, France...

During the 2017 IFOS international congress in Paris, a roundtable discussion on the topic of functional and aesthetic rhinoplasty was organised. Five experts, from the five continents and renown in the field of rhinoplasty, were brought together to discuss the issue from an international perspective and to put forward a consensus or on the contrary practical differences. Five questions were put to the experts beforehand to guarantee independent answers, which were then discussed during the roundtable. The questions were the following: - What are the age limits for achieving a rhinoplasty? - Do you use objective measurements before, during and after surgery? (facial landmarks, airflow, peroperative measurements) - How do you manage the preoperative general information and computer imaging of the patient? - What are the indications in your practice to perform a CT-scan or endoscopic examination before doing a rhinoplasty? - What kind of graft or prosthesis do you use for an augmentation rhinoplasty? This paper offers a synthesis of the roundtable based on the experts' answers to the different questions...

INTRODUCTION: We report a case of obstructive sleep apnea that occurred as a result of Forestier disease and describe the surgical treatment that was performed. SUMMARY: The patient is a 56-year-old man who presented dysphagia for solids and liquids, snoring (score 10) and excessive daytime sleepiness for 5 years. On fiber optic laryngoscopy examination, there was interarytenoid edema and protrusion of the posterior wall of the larynx. The cervical X-Ray showed protrusion of intervertebral disc between C3-C5 (skeletal hyperostosis) and the polysomnography revealed apnea-hypopnea index (AHI) of 56 events/h...

The prevalence of hearing loss in newborns and infants is estimated between 1 to 3.47 cases per 1000 live births. Early diagnosis and rehabilitation of congenital hearing loss are mandatory in order to achieve a satisfactory linguistic and cognitive development. Without appropriate opportunities to learn language, these children will fall behind their normal hearing peers in communication, cognition, reading and socio-emotional development. After promising results, neonatal screening for hearing loss and audiological evaluation are becoming more extensively carried out...

The laryngeal monitoring of the inferior and superior laryngeal nerves, and the vagus nerve, has advanced for last years, in practice of thyroid and parathyroid surgery. Different methods are used, using direct or indirect laryngeal stimulation and also intermittent or continuous nerve registration. At present time, various recommendations of it in the world use are reported, and availability of the tool used remains a limit in some countries. The aim of this Icon during Ifos 2017 was to share knowledge about laryngeal intraoperative nerve monitoring (LIONM) procedures and to evaluate current practices used to improve the quality of thyroid and parathyroid surgery...

The main advantage of endoscopic laser surgery for laryngeal cancer is to allow tumour resection, while limiting functional sequelae, thereby improving the postoperative course. In this type of surgery, the epiglottis is often partially resected, leaving a raw zone without any reconstruction. The surgical technique described here involves endoscopic reconstruction of the epiglottis after partial resection. The sectioned edge of the epiglottis is sutured to the base of the tongue to create a neoepiglottis and to reconstruct the vallecula, thus resembling preoperative anatomy, allowing improvement of postoperative swallowing...
