    ABSTRACT: A chronic, destructive form of paranasal sinus aspergillosis may exist without evidence of tissue fungal invasion. In this state, the pathogen results in progressive, chronic inflammation intermediate between previously described saprophytic and invasive states. We report three such cases. This variety of aspergillosis and an analysis of the clinical and histopathologic findings of previously reported cases support the concept that infection with the organism may produce a spectrum of pathologic changes and is akin to the range of aspergillosis disease states described affecting the lung. We classify paranasal and nasal aspergillosis as (1) noninvasive, either an aspergilloma or allergic type, (2) destructive, noninvasive, and (3) invasive, either slowly progressive or fulminant. Any form may progress to, or be associated with, more aggressive disease.

    ABSTRACT: The Audit Commission recommends that more day surgery be undertaken in the Health Service. In a prospective study of 62 children undergoing adenoidectomy one major complication commenced within 2 hours of surgery. Of 15 minor complications, 78% occurred within 6 hours of surgery; they did not herald later major complications. Day adenoidectomy can safely be performed if patients remain in hospital for 6-8 hours post-operatively and then fulfil the following discharge criteria: they are apyrexial, eating, drinking and with no signs of haemorrhage. This will not result in a significant increase in workload for general practitioners. Day adenoidectomy for medically and socially appropriate patients increases our day surgery figures by 74% to 43% of the routine paediatric ENT caseload. There are immediate benefits to patients but the potential economic benefits to the Health Service will not be felt unless these children are treated in a designated Day Case Unit.

    ABSTRACT: Balloon dilatation has become a widely accepted technique in the management of oesophageal and other gastrointestinal strictures. The use of this procedure in the pharynx has rarely been reported. We have performed 55 balloon dilatations on 13 patients with pharyngeal strictures. In three patients all symptoms were permanently abolished after one dilatation. Seven patients were successfully managed with repeated, regular dilatations. Two patients had a good initial response but this was not maintained and one patient had no relief of symptoms. Balloon dilatation is minimally invasive, less traumatic than rigid pharyngoscopy with dilatation, and well tolerated. It may be frequently repeated, and has successfully relieved dysphagia caused by benign and malignant strictures of the pharynx, including instances where previous rigid bouginage had failed.

    ABSTRACT: The sagittal plane, computerized tomography (CT) scan has been proposed as the most important radiological view in the diagnosis of orbital floor blow-out fractures. This view however is impractical and unnecessary. Direct, coronal plane CT scan with careful attention paid to the shape of the inferior rectus muscle and antral roof will successfully diagnose this traumatic condition, as in our reported case in which no other radiological abnormalities were present.

    ABSTRACT: We prospectively studied the latest 60 patients who presented to the ENT Departments of St Mary's and St George's Hospitals with ingested foreign bodies. Localization of the foreign body by the patient was compared to the actual site of the foreign body at removal and graded accordingly. Localization was better the higher the object. When compared with objects above the cricopharyngeus muscle items impacted below this level were poorly localized (P < 0.0001) and lateralized (P < 0.0001). This suggests that for a patient who is able to lateralize a presumptive foreign body within the cervical region, then that object is likely to be above cricopharyngeus and on the side indicated. Further, it is likely to be visible on indirect laryngoscopy and amenable to removal in the casualty department. We hypothesize that the pharyngeal innervation by the vagus and glossopharyngeal nerves provides better sensation than in the oesophagus which is innervated less densely by the vagus and cervical sympathetic nerves.

    ABSTRACT: We present four patients complaining of neuralgic pains across the nasal bridge following trauma, who were successfully treated by division of the external nasal nerve. We believe it is a useful treatment in selected cases.

    ABSTRACT: We present a case of virus-associated haemophagocytic syndrome following Epstein-Barr virus infection in which a fulminant pseudomonal supraglottitis developed. Increasingly, unusual pathogens have been found in immunocompromised patients. This is the first reported case of pseudomonal supraglottitis.

    ABSTRACT: We describe a method for continuous measurement of end-tidal carbon dioxide concentration during jet insufflation anaesthesia for microlaryngeal surgery. This increases the safety of the technique by allowing closer monitoring of inspired and expired gases during anaesthesia.
