Transoral thyroidectomy (TOT) represents reasonably the desirable minimally invasive approach to the gland due to the scarless non-visible incisions, the limited distance between the gland and the access that minimize tissue dissection and respect of the surgical anatomical planes. Patients are routinely selected according to an extensive inclusion criteria: (I) ultrasonographically (US) estimated thyroid diameter not larger than 10 cm; (II) US gland volume ≤45 mL; (III) nodule size ≤50 mm; (IV) a benign tumor, such as a thyroid cyst, single-nodular goiter, or multinodular goiter; (V) follicular neoplasm; (VI) papillary microcarcinoma without lymph node metastasis...

REVIEW
Virginijus Valiunas, Ira S Cohen, Peter R Brink
This review focuses on the biophysical properties and structure of the pore and vestibule of homotypic gap junction channels as they relate to channel permeability and selectivity. Gap junction channels are unique in their sole role to connect the cytoplasm of two adjacent cells. In general, these channels are considered to be poorly selective, possess open probabilities approximating unity, and exhibit mean open times ranging from milliseconds to seconds. These properties suggest that such channels can function as delivery pathways from cell to cell for solutes that are significantly larger than monovalent ions...

Tetrancistrum labyrinthus n. sp. is described from the gills of the marine herbivorous fish Siganus canaliculatus (Park) found in the Western Indian Ocean (Sea of Oman and Arabian Sea). Comparative morphological analyses of all previously described species of Tetrancistrum Goto & Kikuchi, 1917 confirmed the distinct status of T. labyrinthus n. sp. The new species closely resembles T. suezicum Paperna, 1972 and T. oraminii Young, 1967 in the morphology of the male copulatory organ. However, it can be distinguished by possessing a thin handle-like anterior basal flange and a compound accessory piece that is composed of a tapering rod-shaped anterior part and a large cylindrical, elongated posterior part...

FMRFamide-gated Na(+) channel (FaNaC) is a member of the DEG/ENaC family. Amino acid sequence of the second transmembrane region (TM2) of FaNaC is quite similar to that of the acid-sensing ion channels (ASIC) of the same family. In the upper part of TM2, there are two aspartate residues (D552 and D556 in Aplysia FaNaC, AkFaNaC) which construct two negative rings in the external vestibule. In the present study, we examined the function of D552/D556 mutants of AkFaNaC in Xenopus oocytes with special interest in Ca(2+) sensitivity of FaNaC...

In the present study, unsteady airflow patterns and particle deposition in healthy human upper airways were simulated. A realistic 3-D computational model of the upper airways including the vestibule to the end of the trachea was developed using a series of CT scan images of a healthy human. Unsteady simulations of the inhaled and exhaled airflow fields in the upper airway passages were performed by solving the Navier-Stokes and continuity equations for low breathing rates corresponding to low and moderate activities...

This study aimed to (1) evaluate changes in bolus and air volumes in the pharyngo-laryngeal cavity during swallowing and (2) determine how differences in these volumes during swallowing are influenced by bolus amount using 320-row area detector computed tomography (320-ADCT). Three-, 10-, and 20-ml honey-thick liquids (5% w/v) were presented to ten healthy subjects placed in a 45° reclining position. 3D images were created in 29 phases at an interval of 0.1 s for 3.15 s. Changes in bolus and air volumes in the pharyngo-laryngeal cavity were calculated...

REVIEW
Jeremy Hornibrook
The technique of transtympanic electrocochleography was initially developed as an objective hearing threshold test by Eggermont. Gibson et al. (1977) claimed that an enlarged direct current component of the action potential (AP) called the summating potential (SP) is an indication of endolymphatic hydrops, later confirmed by Coates who proposed an SP/AP ratio measure. This led to numerous publications using diagnostic ratios of 0.33-0.35. The insensitivity led to an eventual disenchantment with the test as a reliable objective test for Meniere's disease...

The aim of this study was to analyze the role of Ki-67, p53, and the "aberrant p53 pattern" in squamous cell carcinomas of the nasal vestibule. Patients between 1995 and 2014 were included. Baseline characteristics and outcome were analyzed with respect to immunohistochemical staining of Ki-67 and p53. "Aberrant p53 pattern" was represented by a moderate or strong staining of at least 60% of the tumor cells or a complete absence of immunoreactivity. Forty-six patients were included of whom 31 (67.4%) were available for Ki-67 and 32 (69...

CONCLUSION: Our study showed that sensory organization test (SOT) could principally reflect utricular function, and our cut-score of VEST ratio (the indicator of inputs from the vestibular system in balance performance) in SOT could help to screen patients with unilateral peripheral vestibular dysfunction in non-fallers. OBJECTIVES: We aimed to know SOT reflects the function of which vestibular end organs and to assess the possibility of screening patients with peripheral vestibular dysfunction in non-fall population by means of SOT...

Many dental procedures allow for implant placement in partially or totally edentulous patients. Despite the availability of various implant and abutment types on the market, it often becomes quite challenging to achieve the biological and esthetic goals in a patient who has ridge deficiencies. Where problems will arise is from the lack of adequate bone quality and quantity.1,2 Soft tissue form and maintenance is also a consideration to evaluate.3 Primary reconstructive techniques following segmental mandibulectomy is evolving and improves quality of life...

PATIENT: A 60-year-old man presented for refabrication of his maxillary complete denture. In this case, a digital process was chosen to replace the ill-fitted complete maxillary denture. A specialized scan retractor was used to retract the mobile tissues of the lips, cheeks and vestibule while taking a digital impression. The interocclusal record obtained in the patient's mouth was scanned in order to digitally register the occlusal vertical dimension. The denture base and teeth were designed on virtual models that were mounted at the occlusal vertical dimension, and were made using CAD/CAM technology...

VATER association is a nonrandom occurrence of congenital malformations: vertebral defects, anal atresia, tracheoesophageal fistula, renal defects, and radial bone anomalies. We report the case of a 19-year-old man with a childhood diagnosis of VATER association, who presented to the motion sickness clinic with severe seasickness. We discuss the clinical and laboratory diagnosis of vestibular pathophysiology, which was confirmed by MRI of lateral semicircular canal and vestibule dysplasia. We suggest the possibility of vestibular involvement as part of the developmental field defect associated with VATER syndrome, which hitherto has rarely been reported...

Shammah is a preparation of smokeless tobacco (ST) that is frequently used in the Arabian Peninsula, especially in Saudi Arabia. A mixture of powdered tobacco, lime, ash, black pepper, oils and flavorings, shammah in is placed in the buccal cavity or lower labial vestibule of the mouth. The user (or dipper) spits out insoluble debris. ST is linked to a number of harmful effects such as dental disease, oral cancer, oesophagus cancer, and pancreas cancer. It also causes adverse reproductive effects including stillbirth, premature birth and low birth weight...
