Journal description

The Official Journal of The British Association of Otolaryngologists and The Oto-Rhino-Laryngology Research Society. Clinical Otolaryngology and Allied Sciences is a bimonthly journal devoted to clinical and clinically-oriented research papers of the highest scientific standards dealing with: current otorhinolaryngological practice; audiology; speech pathology; head and neck oncology; head and neck plastic and reconstructive surgery; related specialities. The emphasis is on high quality new work in the clinical field and on fresh, original research. Each issue begins with an editorial expressing the personal opinions of an individual with a particular knowledge of a chosen subject. The main body of each issue is then devoted to original papers carrying important results for those working in the field. In addition, topical review articles are published discussing a particular subject in depth, including not only the opinions of the author but also any controversies surrounding the subject.

    ABSTRACT: Olfactory neuroblastoma is a rare tumour in the anterior skull base with frequent intracranial extension. Combined management between otolaryngologist and neurosurgeons are best to ensure complete tumour resection and to minimize the complications of treatment Endoscopic resection of the nasal part of the tumour is not only for aesthetic consideration. The superior illumination and visualization offered by the endoscopy enables the surgeon to adequately resect the tumour especially in the posterior ethimoid and sphenoid sinuses. A frontal craniotomy approach allows the surgeon to better appreciate the intracranial extent of tumour and to ensure an adequate dura resection margin. In addition, a craniotomy approach allows a water-tight dura closure with stitches and reinforcement by a vascularized galeal-pericranial flap, minimizing post operative cerebrospinal fluid leakage. In our case series of 14 patients spanning 14 years, only one patient died of disease. The ten-year overall survival is 93%. Seven patients have local or regional recurrence; all except one was salvaged with additional surgery and/or radiotherapy. The survival results are comparable to open craniofacial resection. Our results showed that intracranial extension of disease (Kadish stage C) increased the risk for disease recurrence. Loco-regional regional recurrence can be salvaged with addition surgery and/or radiotherapy and can achieve long-term survival. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

    ABSTRACT: Whilst in contemporary surgical practice thyroidectomy is a relatively safe and standardised procedure, the potential for morbidity from inadvertent iatrogenic injury, notably that which follows damage to the recurrent laryngeal nerves (RLNs) or parathyroid glands, is not insignificant. The importance of identification and meticulous dissection of closely investing structures was highlighted as early as 1938(1) , and it is now the accepted practice to routinely identify and preserve the RLNs and parathyroid glands intraoperatively.(2) Intuitively, employing magnification would avail such practice, and indeed was first proposed in 1975 as a method for identification of the parathyroid glands to limit postoperative hypocalcaemia.(3) It is perhaps surprising, therefore, that there has been a subsequent dearth of information in the literature evaluating the role of increased levels of magnification in thyroid surgery, particularly relating to the use of the operating microscope.

    ABSTRACT: Abstract Atrophic rhinitis (AR) is a debilitating chronic nasal mucosal disease of unknown etiology. The condition is characterized by progressive nasal mucosal atrophy, trophy of the underlying bone of the turbinate, abnormal widening of the nasal cavities with paradoxical nasal obstruction and formation of viscid secretions and dried crusts leading to a characteristic fetor (ozaena).

    ABSTRACT: Background: The use of botulinum toxin in Otorhinolaryngology has rapidly expanded over the last decade. Current observation is that the use of botulinum toxin in Otorhinolaryngology is relatively poorly acknowledged by Otorhinolaryngologists. Objective of review: To summarise the non-cosmetic uses of botulinum toxin in Otorhinolaryngology. Type of review: Narrative. Search Strategy and evaluation method: A literature search was performed using the Medline and Embase databases. Combinations of 'botulinum toxin' with each indication were searched. A citation was included if it evaluated a non-cosmetic use of botulinum toxin in Otorhinolaryngology. Eligibility of studies was assessed by two reviewers. A total of 1187 abstracts were reviewed and 97 articles identified. Conclusions: Botulinum toxin provides an effective and minimally invasive treatment option in a wide range of non-cosmetic indications. Side-effects are few and transient with an excellent safety profile. Ongoing research is required to fully critically appraise its uses.

    ABSTRACT: This is the first study to compare the characteristic parameters of ocular vestibular-evoked myogenic potentials (VEMPs) under various currents and mechanical vibration. The optimal galvanic stimulation is set at an intensity of 5 mA with a duration of 1 ms without exceeding pain tolerances, since it exhibits the highest response rate and largest amplitude. Our data provide the evidence that the bone-conducted vibration and galvanic vestibular stimulation (GVS) modes act on different sites in the vestibulo-ocular reflex pathway. Since the optimal GVS mode is identical for evoking individual cervical and ocular VEMPs, the combined VEMP test can be applied with substantial benefits in clinical practice.

    ABSTRACT: Use of GlideScope(®) videolaryngoscopes has significantly improved ease of glottic visualization and success in intubation compared to traditional direct laryngoscopy. Penetrating injuries from intubation with the GlideScope(®) are preventable. The most common etiology of Glidescope(®) injury is intubation technique errors. Injuries are generally located on the right aspect of the soft palate and present with hemorrhage. Otorhinologic consultation and conservative therapy are the mainstay for managing iatrogenic penetrating oropharyngeal trauma. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
