INTRODUCTION: Odontoidectomy can help decompress ventral compression of the brainstem and upper cervical spinal cord in the presence of bony abnormalities of the craniovertebral junction (CVJ), e.g., an odontoid pannus. Endonasal approaches have been shown to be associated with lower morbidity compared with traditional transoral approaches. We demonstrated an entirely endonasal approach to the CVJ. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We presented our technique for performing an endoscopic endonasal odontoidectomy...

Thornwaldt cyst (Tc) is a benign mass, usually localized in the median plan of the nasopharynx. It is generate from permanent notochord remainings. The pharyngeal bursa-being an embryological residual-occurs in 3% of healthy adults. Closing of the orifice of a nasopharyngeal bursa results in the occurrence of Tc. When the Tc become infected or inflamed, causing to signs. The general indications for radiologic study in patients are nasopharyngeal symptoms, headache, seizures, and dizziness. Computed tomography is less effective than magnetic resonance imaging in the detection and characterization of Tc...

Background and study aims : Endoscopic treatment of Zenker's diverticulum has proven feasible, but electrocautery and CO 2 laser technology carry the risk of collateral thermal injury. Thulium laser septum incision may overcome this limitation. We describe for the first time the use of thulium laser through flexible endoscopy in a small cohort of patients with Zenker diverticulum. Patients and methods : Thulium laser septum division was performed via flexible endoscopy under general anesthesia in consecutive symptomatic patients with primary or recurrent Zenker diverticulum...

A significant percentage of patients with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) will not respond to proton pump inhibitor (PPI) therapy. The causes of PPI-refractory GERD are numerous and diverse, and include adherence, persistent acid, functional disorders, nonacid reflux, and PPI bioavailability. The evaluation should start with a symptom assessment and may progress to imaging, endoscopy, and monitoring of esophageal pH, impedance, and bilirubin. There are a variety of pharmacologic and procedural interventions that should be selected based on the underlying mechanism of PPI failure...

This case report describes the novel use of transoral robotic surgery (TORS) with delayed transoral laser microsurgery (TLM) for residual disease in the resection of a pediatric neurofibroma with supraglottic and parapharyngeal space extension. Postoperatively, the patient had excellent functional outcomes. This case demonstrates that pediatric TORS is feasible, safe, and complementary to TLM. Neurofibroma is just one of the diverse pathologic processes of the pediatric airway that can be managed via transoral surgery, and applications of TORS with TLM will continue to broaden as our experience develops...

Importance: Facial vascular anomalies are surgical challenges due to their vascularity and facial nerve distortion. To assist facial vascular anomaly surgical treatment, presurgical percutaneous facial nerve stimulation and recording of compound motor action potentials can be used to map the facial nerve branches. During surgery, the nerve map and continuous intraoperative motor end plate potential monitoring can be used to reduce nerve injury. Objective: To investigate if preoperative facial nerve mapping (FNM) is associated with intraoperative facial nerve injury risk and safe surgical approach options compared with standard nerve integrity monitoring (NIM)...

Enteral access is one of the most common procedures performed in abdominal and interventional radiology. The surgical anatomy of the postoperative stomach may, however, make enteral access challenging. This report describes a patient with a pancreaticoduodenectomy complicated by a gastrojejunostomy leak who underwent 2 unsuccessful transoral endoscopic nasojejunal tube placements and 2 failed percutaneous gastrojejunostomy tube placements. Eventually, a gastrojejunostomy tube was placed utilizing percutaneous techniques with fluoroscopy assistance and gastrojejunoscopy guidance...

This study was made to assess the possibilities and limits of minimally invasive transoral approach to the nasopharynx using the Da Vinci surgical robot. It was conducted on eleven corpses, without need for palatine split; using surgical robots Da Vinci models S HD and Si HD. We have defined "anatomical key landmarks" on all sides of the nasopharynx, to confirm our hypothesis. All of the nasopharynx could be visualized and transorally reached by the robot with a validation of all the key landmarks...

BACKGROUND: Aberrant medial retropharyngeal prevertebral course of internal carotid arteries (ICAs) is extremely uncommon. In oropharyngeal surgeries like trans oral odontoidectomy (TOO) this unrecognized aberrant retropharyngeal course of ICAs can result in devastating complications secondary to inadvertent injury of ICAs. Authors describe this aberrant course of ICAs in a patient with craniovertebral junction (CVJ) anomaly with dysmorphic C1 lateral mass on one side and discuss in detail various management issues in this complex case...

Cancer of the unknown primary (CUP) makes up 2-4% of new head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) diagnoses. This scenario is recognised as a diagnostic challenge for head and neck surgeons. For all patients with proven cervical lymph node metastatic SCC without a clinically apparent primary site, the current UK guidelines recommends PET-CT, panendoscopy with directed biopsies and bilateral tonsillectomy as a standard of care.

Pathological processes in the craniovertebral region (CVR) are usually accompanied by dislocation complications leading to gross neurological disorders. One of the diseases that affect the CVR and lead to atlanto-axial dislocation (AAD) is rheumatoid arthritis. Errors in the diagnosis of rheumatoid disease and in the choice of a treatment approach may cause adverse outcomes. OBJECTIVE: To define the approach for surgical treatment of AAD associated with rheumatoid disease of the CVR, with allowance for the rigidity of deformity...

Basilar invagination is defined as abnormal upward and/or posterior displacement of the odontoid leading to ventral compression of the cervicomedullary junction. This condition leads to lower cranial neuropathies, sensorimotor deficits, and myelopathy. These symptoms can persist even after posterior decompression, which is an indication for ventral decompression. Transoral approaches to the upper cervical spine carry significant morbidity, limiting their utility. The endonasal approach to the upper cervical spine presents an alternative for patients with amenable anatomy...

INTRODUCTION: Recurrent respiratory papillomatosis results in hoarseness, stridor and airway obstruction. Management is surgical, with most surgeons using microdebrider or laser. Transoral robotic surgery (TORS) has been successfully utilised for the excision of oropharyngeal malignancies and paediatric airway surgery. This is the first case report of TORS being used for the excision of laryngeal papillomas. CASE REPORT: A 36 year old Chinese female was diagnosed with juvenile onset recurrent respiratory papillomatosis...
