SESSION TITLE: Infectious Disease Global Case ReportsSESSION TYPE: Global Case ReportPRESENTED ON: Tuesday, October 28, 2014 at 01:30 PM - 02:30 PMINTRODUCTION: A variety of neoplastic and non-neoplastic conditions can present as cervico-mediastinal masses. However invasive Aspergillosis presenting as cervico-medisatinal mass especillay in an immunocommpetant host is extremely uncommon. There were very few published cases in the english literature. we present clinical, radiological and pathological findings of one such rare case which was appropriately managed at our institution CASE PRESENTATION: A 27 year old male presented with complaints of on and of cough of 3 years...

Can mouth movements shape attitudes? When people articulate different consonants (e.g., B or K) they press the tongue and the lips against various spots in the mouth. This allows for construction of words that feature systematic wanderings of consonantal stricture spots either from the front to the rear (inward; e.g., BENOKA) or from the rear to the front (outward; e.g., KENOBA) of the mouth. These wanderings of muscular strictures resemble the oral kinematics during either deglution (swallowing-like, inward movement) or expectoration (spitting-like, outward movement)...

The buccal pad of fat (BPF) is an important structure found in the orofacial region of humans. It is larger in infants and gradually becomes smaller in adults. We present twenty seven (27) cases with an average age of 60 years, with a variety of pathological lesions in which we have used the BPF to reconstruct the defects following resection of tumours. Twenty (74%) patients were diagnosed with Squamous Cell Carcinma. The commonest surgical sites were the soft palate and maxilla (46%). A clinical analysis of the value of BPF in reconstruction was made by using assessment criteria, mouth opening, cosmesis, fistula formation, approved by the ethical committee of the Hospital...

BACKGROUND: Atrioesophageal fistulas (AEF) are a life-threatening complication of left atrial ablation for atrial fibrillation or other atrial rhythm disorders, which mostly manifest as neurological deficits. AEFs result in an overflow of esophageal contents into the left atrium with subsequent systemic embolization. RESULTS: AEFs have been reported in 40 patients, including 18 males, between 35 and 72 years of age. AEFs manifested clinically between 3 and 36 days following the ablation...

Achalasia is a primary esophageal motor disorder of unknown etiology characterized by insufficient lower esophageal sphincter (LES) relaxation in response to deglution. We present the case of a child diagnosed with asthma, with no response to asthma treatment. On account of associating dysphagia, regurgitation of food and weight loss he was given an abdominal ultrasound that revealed a massive dilated and narrowing of its distal segment esophagus. Ultrasound examination proved to be a good diagnostic tool, reorienting from the initial asthma diagnosis to the correct achalasia diagnosis, confirmed through barium swallow, upper digestive endoscopy and esophageal manometry...

BACKGROUND: Decrease in the capacity to deglution solids and liquids is a problem in many people, this problem decreases quality of life. The main objective of our work was to evaluate the influence in elderly ambulatory patients with dysphagia of a texture modified diet ready to use on nutritional parameters and quality of life. METHODS: We enrolled 29 patients from Nutrition Department with dysphagia and an age over 70 years. Patients received a texture modified diet supplemented with dehydrated nutritional products (Resource Ready) (1,633 kcal, 59,9 g proteins (16%), 52,1 g lipids (29%), 231,7 g carbohydrates (57%), 11,1g de fiber, 82 mg cholesterol)...

Forestier's disease or diffuse idiophatic skeletal hyperostosis is a systemic reumathological abnormality of unknown etiology. It produces calcificationossification of the anterior longitudinal ligament. The low dorsal region is the most affected in the raquis. These patients are tipically asymptomatic or with few symptoms (minimal joint pain, spinal pain, stiffness). Dysphagia is the most common symptom when the disease affects the cervical spine; less frequent is dyspnea, both secondary to extrinsic compression of the esophagus and trachea...

UNLABELLED: The aim of this study is to determine the influence of Angle molar class, presence of a posterior crossbite, anterior guidance, as well as gender in the muscular activity of the masticatory system in a population of healthy dental students. STUDY DESIGN: Surface electromyography recordings are made for the masseter, anterior and posterior temporalis and digastric muscles; in three different tests: clenching at maximum intercuspation, swallowing and chewing...

PURPOSE: The coordination of the respiratory and alimentary function is indispensable to transport the food from the oral cavity to the stomach without aspiration risk. Disturbances during pharyngeal phase of swallowing, registered after oral tumour excision, are caused by diminishing of the tongue shape, decreasing of gustatory sensitivity and oral stereognosis. The aim of the work is to estimate the influence the oral tissue excision to the pharyngeal phase of deglution. MATERIAL AND METHODS: videoradiological examination of deglutition by W...

UNLABELLED: The thyrogloss cysts present themselves usually as unique tumorations in the anterior cervical zone, more frequently in the second decade of life and affecting equally the two sexs. They move typically with the movements of deglution and can increase its volume with infections processes. In seldom occasions, the thyrogloss cysts can present symptoms as dysphonia, dysphagia or dyspnea facts that can suggest its laryngeal extension. METHODS: We present a case of a patient affected by dysphonia of long evolution, associated to the presence of a cervical mass...

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis is a progressive degenerative neuromuscular disease of insidious onset. It involves upper and lower motor neurons and causes both spastic and atrophic muscular symptoms. More than one fourth of patients have complaints relating to the head and neck (bulbar palsy); thus, the otolaryngologist may be the first physician to see them. In bulbar forms of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, voice and/or swallowing difficulties are often the initial signs of disturbance. Predominant symptoms are slurred speech, hoarseness, dysphagia, and dyspnea...

OBJECTIVES: This study assessed the effect of fundoplication on liquid and solid bolus transit across the esophagogastric junction (EGJ) in relation to EGJ dynamics and dysphagia. METHODS: Twelve patients with gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD) were studied before and after fundoplication. Concurrent high-resolution EGJ manometry and fluoroscopy were performed whilst swallowing liquid barium and a solid bolus. The EGJ transit time, EGJ opening duration, transit efficacy, and EGJ relaxation were measured...

The size and location for maxillary defects influence the difficulty of prosthetic rehabilitation. In all such cases, specially made obturator prosthesis's necessary to restore masticatory function and improve speech, deglution and esthetics. Obturator prostheses vary in size and shape depending on the extent of the defect. Various methods and techniques have been described for the fabrication of removable obturator prostheses. The aim of the present work was to review the progress made in technologies, designs and materials for prosthesis of this type...

Laryngomalacia is the most common cause of stridor in newborns and infants. Up until now, different surgical techniques for the treatment of this disease have been described. We report on a modified technique, the so called epiglottopexy, which is a laser-surgical treatment strategy in severe laryngomalacia. A total number of six children (ages: 6 weeks-10.4 years) were treated for life-threatening stridor, which was due to an isolated posterior displacement of the epiglottis during inspiration. In two patients, shortened aryepiglottic folds contributed to the stridor...

OBJECTIVE: To present a case of esophagic perforation due to a pneumatic dilatations of the cardias in a patient with achalasia. BACKGROUND: Achalasia of the esophagus is a primary motor alteration with an unknown cause. The principal characteristics are the lower or absent peristaltic waves in the esophagic body and the impared lower esophagic sphincter relaxation during deglution. The management is palliative with pneumatic dilatations, pharmacologic therapy or with surgery...
