OBJECTIVE: To review the optimal techniques for localization and characterization of neck paragangliomas (PGL). MATERIAL AND METHODS: Systematic review of the literature from the PubMed/Medline database. RESULTS: Neck PGL are hypervascular tumours essentially arising from paraganglionic tissue situated at the carotid bifurcation (carotid body) and along the vagus nerve. Morphological and functional imaging are indicated to confirm the diagnosis, identify multifocal disease and for local and regional staging...

BACKGROUND: Recent advice against codeine use in children prompted our unit to prescribe Oramorph as required, in addition to regular paracetamol and ibuprofen, as post-(adeno)tonsillectomy analgesia. This study investigated whether Oramorph was in fact required. METHODS: Following (adeno)tonsillectomy, parents were telephoned and asked whether they used Oramorph. RESULTS: Of 56 children studied, 41 (73.2%) were given Oramorph. In the 15 (26...

The reliability of the sentinel lymph node (SN) technique has been established for more than ten years in T1-T2 oral cavity and oropharynx squamous cell carcinoma. Although most authors stress the necessity of rigorous implementation, there are no agreed guidelines. Moreover, other indications have been described, in other anatomical areas of the upper aerodigestive tract and in case of previous surgery or radiotherapy. SN expert teams, under the GETTEC head and neck tumor study group, conducted a review of the key points for implementation in head and neck cancers through guidelines and a review of classical and extended indications...

The neck dissection technique has been precisely defined. It allows resection of lymph node groups, comprising at least groups IIA, IIB, III and IV according to Robbins' classification for head and neck cancer. Neck dissection is classically performed in an upwards and forwards direction, but the technique can vary according to the site of lymph nodes. The authors describe the central role of dissection of the triangle between the spinal accessory nerve and the internal jugular vein at the beginning of neck dissection in order to facilitate group IIB dissection while avoiding traction on the spinal accessory nerve and to ensure early control of the internal jugular vein superiorly; release of the vein also facilitates subsequent dissection of the thyrolinguofacial trunk and identification of the hypoglossal nerve...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of the present study was to examine the effect of acquired unilateral peripheral facial palsy on speech, communication and oral functions and to study the relationship between the degree of facial palsy and articulation, saliva control, eating ability and lip force. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this descriptive study, 27 patients (15 men and 12 women, mean age 48years) with unilateral peripheral facial palsy were included if they were graded under 70 on the Sunnybrook Facial Grading System...

OBJECTIVE: The authors present the guidelines of the French Society of Otorhinolaryngology concerning the management of epistaxis during antithrombotic therapy. METHODS: A review of the literature was performed by a multidisciplinary work group. Guidelines were drafted, then re-edited by a reading group independent of the work group to produce the final text. The proposed recommendations were graded A, B, C or expert opinion, on decreasing levels of evidence. RESULTS: Before any decision to modify antithrombotic treatment, it is recommended to screen for overdose and assess the risk of thrombosis...

INTRODUCTION: Ameloblastoma is a rare, benign odontogenic tumour associated with a high recurrence rate. It accounts for 1% of all tumours of the jaws. The purpose of this study was to compare the ameloblastoma recurrence rate according to the type of treatment: radical or conservative. PATIENTS AND METHODS: All patients with a diagnosis of ameloblastoma between 1991 and 2013 were retrospectively identified in order to extract topographic, radiological, and histological data and the type of treatment: conservative (marsupialization, enucleation, curettage) or radical (segmental resection) and to compare the recurrence rate according to the type of treatment...

INTRODUCTION: Nasal NK/T-cell lymphoma is a rare clinicopathological entity, formerly called midline lethal granuloma. Following progress in histology and the routine use of immunohistochemistry, nasal NK/T-cell lymphoma was recognized as a distinct entity by WHO in 2001. CASE REPORT: The authors report the case of a 22-year-old, insulin-dependent diabetic woman, who presented with mid-facial inflammatory swelling following facial trauma, initially diagnosed and treated as cellulitis of the face...

OBJECTIVES: The authors present the guidelines of the French Otorhinolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery Society (SFORL) on first-line treatment of epistaxis in adults. METHODS: A multidisciplinary work-group was entrusted with a review of the scientific literature on the above topic. Guidelines were drawn up, based on the articles retrieved and the group members' individual experience. They were then read over by an editorial group independent of the work-group. The guidelines were graded as A, B, C or expert opinion, by decreasing level of evidence...

OBJECTIVE: Assessment of sinonasal symptoms on a self-reported questionnaire is thoroughly subjective, but indispensable for quantifying symptoms. The present study sought to compare responses on the DyNaChron questionnaire just before and just after consultation for chronic sinonasal dysfunction. MATERIALS AND METHODS: 78 patients (mean age, 43.1±16.9 years) consulting for chronic sinonasal dysfunction took part in a prospective study, responding to the computerized version of the DyNaChron self-reported questionnaire, in a dedicated room, just before and just after medical interview and physical examination...

OBJECTIVES: To study the diagnostic and prognostic contribution of laryngeal electromyography in unilateral vocal-fold immobility in adults. MATERIAL AND METHODS: A retrospective study included patients with unilateral vocal-fold immobility undergoing laryngeal electromyography between 2007 and 2015. Neurogenic, normal or myogenic findings were compared to the clinical aspect. Prognosis for recovery was assessed from motor unit potentials on laryngeal electromyography, and compared to subsequent progress on laryngoscopy...

The surgical management of skull base lesions is difficult due to the complex anatomy of the region and the intimate relations between the lesion and adjacent nerves and vessels. Minimally invasive approaches are increasingly used in skull base surgery to ensure an optimal functional prognosis. Three-dimensional (3D) computed tomography (CT) reconstruction facilitates surgical planning by visualizing the anatomical relations of the lesions in all planes (arteries, veins, nerves, inner ear) and simulation of the surgical approach in the operating position...

INTRODUCTION: Isolated parasitic swellings of the neck, particularly hydatid cysts, are rare, even in endemic countries. The aim of this study was to assess the epidemiological and clinical features and the diagnostic approach to head and neck hydatid disease. CASE REPORT: A 3-year-old boy was hospitalised for an isolated mass of the left side of the neck that had been gradually enlarging for one year. Neck ultrasound demonstrated a hypoechoic cystic structure on the lateral aspect of the neck, measuring 3...
