BACKGROUND: Emergence delirium (ED) is a state of aggressive agitation that can occur temporarily in the process of emerging from anesthesia in children exposed to volatile or intravenous anesthetics. Emergence delirium is typically assessed using the published and validated pediatric emergence delirium (PAED) scale. Due to some variation in properties between sevoflurane and desflurane for maintenance of anesthesia after standard sevoflurane induction, we designed a prospective study to examine potential differences in emergence behavior and incidence of ED in children undergoing elective ear-nose-throat (ENT) surgery...

OBJECTIVE: Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor γ (PPARγ) agonists have been shown to have anti-proliferative, anti-angiogenic, and proapoptotic effects, leading to interest in their use as cancer therapeutics. Pioglitazone, a U.S. Food and Drug Administration-approved type II diabetes medication and PPARγ agonist, may have a role in adjuvant head-and-neck squamous cell carcinoma treatment or prevention. Therefore, the purpose of this study was: 1) to treat oral cavity cancer cells with the PPARγ activator, pioglitazone, to analyze gene expression changes; and 2) to compare those changes with our preexisting genomic data for development of hypothesis-driven additional basic and clinical studies...

Septoplasty is one of the most common operations performed in otolaryngology and anterior nasal packing is done routinely to prevent postoperative bleeding, septal hematoma or nasal synechia. Currently, transseptal sutures have gained a broader application area, not only for preventing the complications such as septal hematoma and bleeding but also closing any accidental tears of septal mucosa and providing additional support for the cartilage pieces retained in septoplasty. We evaluated the quality of life of the patients in early postoperative period (in the first postoperative week), intranasal edema with endoscopic examination and the intranasal changes with acoustic rhinometry...

We would like to bring to the attention of the readership a rare condition known as PANDAS (paediatric autoimmune neuropsychiatric disorder associated with streptococcal infection), which is mostly seen by paediatric psychiatric or neurological physicians(1,3) . Due to its relationship with the tonsils and an increasing small number of cases reported in the literature of improvement or even cure by tonsillectomy, we feel it warrants further review and discussion(3,4) .

C Arens, C Betz, M Kraft, S Voigt-Zimmermann
The various stages of tumor growth are characterized by typical epithelial, vascular, and secondary connective tissue changes. Narrow Band Imaging (NBI) endoscopy is a minimally invasive imaging technique that presents vascular structures in particular at a higher contrast than white light endoscopy alone. In combination with high-resolution image recording and reproduction (high-definition television, HDTV; ultra-high definition, 4K), progress has been made in otolaryngological differential diagnostics, both pre- and intraoperatively...

Foreign bodies in the pediatric airway are an uncommon emergency with a high morbidity and mortality rate. Morbidity ranges from 10 to 20% worldwide and this pathology accounts for up to 7% of accidental deaths in children under 4. Dealing with this emergency safely and effectively is complex, requiring a tight coupling of procedures and processes and optimal anesthetic and operating conditions to prevent errors. These factors are recognized by the World Health Organization as 'Human Factors'. We perform a multi-center assessment of human factors pertinent to this emergency...
