Introduction: Foreign body stuck in the throat is a common emergency case, which can be removed by the endoscopic treatment. Fish bones are one of the common observed foreign bodies in the pharynx or cervical esophagus. Fish bones have a risk of damaging the mucosa when lodged in the upper digestive tract. Foreign bodies of fish bones located outside the laryngopharyngeal tissue are relatively unusual, and it is even more rare that they remain in the thyroid. It may cause local infection, abscess formation, large blood vessels rupture, and other serious life-threatening complications when the position of the fish bone migrates to the neck...

PURPOSES: The postoperative analgesic effect of tizanidine has not yet been evaluated sufficiently. The role of bilateral superficial cervical plexus block (BSCPB) for postoperative analgesia after thyroidectomy remains questionable. We aimed to evaluate the analgesic effect of combined use of BSCPB and a single-dose oral tizanidine in patients undergoing elective thyroid surgery. METHODS: Sixty patients undergoing thyroidectomy were randomized into 3 groups. The control group (Group C, n = 20) received BSCPB with 0...

Internal carotid artery dissection (ICAD) has become an increasingly recognized cause of cerebrovascular accidents in young and middle-aged patients. We report 2 cases of hypoglossal nerve palsy in the course of dissection of the internal carotid arteries. The first patient was admitted to the Department of Neurology due to swallowing difficulty, speech articulation disorders and numbness of the right half of the tongue for 4 weeks. Extracranial vessel ultrasound (US) and transcranial colour Doppler (TCD) visualized thrombus causing occlusion of the right internal carotid artery (RICA)...

BACKGROUND: Endoscopic-assisted transoral surgery, including transoral robotic surgery for metastatic retropharyngeal lymph node (RPN) from well-differentiated thyroid cancer, has been reported to reduce the complications resulting from transcervical and transmandibular approaches. However, the narrow working space and difficulty identifying RPN are problematic. To solve these issues, several studies have used intraoperative ultrasound in endoscopic-assisted transoral surgery. However, the type of ultrasonography suitable for this purpose remains unclear...

Atherosclerotic carotid artery stenosis (CS) continues to be a common cause of acute ischaemic stroke. Optimised medical therapy (OMT), the first-line treatment modality in CS, may reduce or delay - but it does not abolish - CS-related strokes. As per current AHA/ASA and ESC/ESVS/ESO guidelines, carotid artery stenting (CAS) is a less-invasive alternative to carotid endarterectomy (CEA) for CS revascularisation in primary and secondary stroke prevention. Ten-year follow-up from the CREST trial in patients with symptomatic and asymptomatic CS confirmed equipoise of CAS and CEA in the primary endpoint...

OBJECTIVE: The aim of the present study was to elucidate the pattern of change in bulbar muscles using ultrasound in patients diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). METHODS: Changes in the mylohyoid and geniohyoid muscle complex (mylohyoid-geniohyoid-muscle-complex) thickness were recorded while swallowing 5 ml of water using M-mode ultrasound in 30 ALS patients compared to 20 healthy controls. The ratio of mylohyoid-geniohyoid-muscle-complex thickness as determined by the maximum thickness of mylohyoid-geniohyoid-muscle-complex during swallowing divided by thickness at rest, was compared between ALS patients and controls, with the correlation between thickness ratio, echogenicity and clinical parameters assessed...

BACKGROUND: Cricoid pressure during intubation has been used for decades as a way to potentially occlude the esophagus to avoid aspiration of gastric contents. However, recent evidence has questioned the effectiveness of this maneuver. OBJECTIVE: This study uses a noninvasive modality, ultrasonography, to determine the anatomic position of the cricoid cartilage and the esophagus and examines the effectiveness of cricoid pressure on esophageal compression. METHODS: Ultrasound imaging was used to describe the anatomic relationship of the esophagus to the trachea as either being directly behind the trachea, partially behind the trachea, or completely lateral to the trachea...

People who suffer from swallowing disorders, commonly referred to as dysphagia, are often restricted to a texture-modified diet. In such a diet, the texture of the fluid is modified mainly by the addition of gum or starch-based thickeners. For optimal modification of the texture, tunable rheological parameters are shear viscosity, yield stress, and elasticity. In this work, the flow properties of commercial thickeners obtained from major commercial suppliers were measured both in shear and extensional flow using a laboratory viscometer and a newly developed tube viscometry technique, termed Pulsed Ultrasound Velocimetry plus Pressure Drop (PUV + PD)...

BACKGROUND: Gastric tubes are commonly used for the administration of drugs and tube feeding for people who are unable to swallow. Feeding via a tube misplaced in the trachea can result in severe pneumonia. Therefore, the confirmation of tube placement in the stomach after tube insertion is important. Recent studies have reported that ultrasonography provides good diagnostic accuracy estimates in the confirmation of appropriate tube placement. Hence, ultrasound could provide a promising alternative to X-rays in the confirmation of tube placement, especially in settings where X-ray facilities are unavailable or difficult to access...
