OBJECTIVE/HYPOTHESIS: To develop an injection-based enzymatic technique that selectively softens cartilage tissue for reshaping cartilaginous structures in the head and neck. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Two groups were formed using fresh rabbit ears: (1) whole rabbit ear group; (2) composite graft group (2.5mm×3.0cm specimens sectioned from the central region of the pinna). Subperichondrial injections using three enzymes (hyaluronidase, pronase, and collagenase II) in sequence were performed for the experimental specimens from both groups...

OBJECTIVES: To draw up a clearing protocol for Mongolian gerbil cochlea, and to assess the feasibility of quantifying and analyzing 3D cell architecture in the transparent cochleae. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Freshly dissected inner ears were prepared on a 13-day protocol: fixation, microdissection, post-fixation, decalcification, pretreatment (signal enhancement, permeabilization and blocking), fluorescent labeling (indirect immunolabeling and direct labeling), dehydration, clearing in Spalteholz solution (MSBB: methyl salicylate and benzyl benzoate) and mounting...

OBJECTIVE: According to evolutionary developmental (evo-devo) theory, the vomers are bones derived from the secondary palate. Growth of the palatine processes of the maxillae, including the precursors of vomer bones, results in midline fusion posteriorly to the primary palate, which forces the ascension of the vomer bones towards the primary nasal septum, formed by septal cartilage and the perpendicular plate of the ethmoid. According to this hypothesis, the anterior border of the vomer articulates with the posterior surface of the premaxilla in the incisive canal (IC)...

OBJECTIVE: Olfactory dysfunction is one of the comorbidities associated with allergic rhinitis (AR) and AR is one of the common causes of olfactory problems. We aimed to evaluate by the Sniffin' Sticks test the effects on olfactory functions of nasal steroids and leukotriene antagonists used for allergic rhinitis. METHODS: Thirty patients with seasonal rhinitis were included in this study. Patients were randomly divided into three groups of 10 patients; group 1 received montelukast sodium and mometasone furoate (MF) therapy, group 2 received only montelukast, and group 3 only MF...

OBJECTIVES: The authors present the guidelines of the French Otorhinolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery Society (Société française d'oto-rhino-laryngologie et de chirurgie de la face et du cou: SFORL) for diagnostic and therapeutic strategy in Menière's disease. METHODS: A work group was entrusted with a review of the scientific literature on the above topic. Guidelines were drawn up, then read over by an editorial group independent of the work group. The guidelines were graded according to the literature analysis and recommendations grading guide published by the French National Agency for Accreditation and Evaluation in Health (January 2000)...

INTRODUCTION: Kimura's disease is an uncommon disease of unknown aetiology affecting men in their thirties from Southeast Asia. The authors report a case of Kimura's disease in a 50-year-old Tunisian man that was diagnosed after surgery. CASE REPORT: This patient had two 2-cm diameter chronic nodular lesions over the right mandible with no local inflammation and no other clinical findings of systemic disease. Histopathological examination showed germinal centre hyperplasia, eosinophilic micro-abscesses and hyperplasia of postcapillary venules, suggestive of Kimura's disease, which was confirmed by the laboratory work-up: elevated total IgE (519g/L), and eosinophilia (580/mm(3))...

A Uziel
The author reviews day-case otological surgery, which has become increasingly popular in France and all over the world over recent years. Ear surgery is particularly suitable for short-stay admission because of the rapidity of these procedures and possibilities of pain control. This article discusses the advantages of this mode of management (for the patient, the surgeon and the healthcare institution), organizational and safety constraints, and ineligibility criteria. Day-case otological surgery should now become the rule rather than an opportunity...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of the study was to stimulate the vagal and the recurrent laryngeal nerves during and after thyroidectomy or parathyroidectomy, to record muscle responses, interpret the electrophysiological modifications and identify prognostic factors for postoperative vocal fold mobility. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A prospective study monitored 151 vagal nerves and 144 recurrent laryngeal nerves in 114 patients. Seven patients (14 vagal nerves) underwent continuous monitoring via an automatic periodic stimulation (APS(®)) electrode...

OBJECTIVES: There is paucity of data on the efficacy of volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT) in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). The objective of the present study was to investigate outcomes and patterns of recurrence in locally advanced HNSCC treated by VMAT. METHODS: A retrospective study included all patients with stage III or IV HNSCC undergoing curative VMAT. RESULTS: From 2010 to 2013, 130 patients were treated for locally advanced oropharynx (n=55; 42%), hypopharynx (n=38; 29%), larynx (n=22; 17%) or oral cavity (n=15; 12%) SCC...

INTRODUCTION: Keratoameloblastoma is an extremely rare odontogenic tumor, as only 18 cases have been reported in the literature. CASE REPORT: The authors report a case of keratoameloblastoma in a 32-year-old woman and review the literature concerning the clinical features, radiological appearance, histopathological findings and treatment options. DISCUSSION: Keratoameloblastoma is a rare tumor observed more frequently in males (sex ratio: 3:1) characterized by extensive keratin production in odontogenic islets and fibrous stroma...

OBJECTIVE: Desmoid tumours of the head and neck in children are rare, local invasive and potentially fatal tumours. The purpose of this review is to discuss the management of these tumours in the light of a case series and a review of the literature. MATERIAL AND METHODS: This retrospective study summarised the medical data of children treated for desmoid tumours of the head and neck between 1976 and 2014. RESULTS: Five of the 6 children were treated by radical surgical resection, with positive surgical margins (R1) in 2 cases, followed by recurrence requiring further resection...

OBJECTIVES: In chronic renal failure (CRF), deterioration of glomerular filtration results in accumulation of metabolites in the body which affect all organs. This study was performed to investigate the olfactory functions, and determine if hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis improves olfactory function in non-diabetic CRF patients. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The olfactory functions were analyzed in CRF patients not on a dialysis program and had a creatinine level≥2mg/dL, in CRF patients on hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis, and in healthy controls...
