  • Case Report: Eustachian Tube Dysfunction after Penetrating Facial Trauma. [Journal Article]
    Mil Med. 2023 Jan 31 [Online ahead of print]LaBanc AJ, Schlocker C
  • Traumatic conductive hearing loss (TCHL) is most commonly attributed to tympanic membrane perforations, hemotympanum, or ossicular chain disruption. These complications are generally managed conservatively for up to 6 months with good hearing outcomes. We encountered a case of penetrating facial trauma leading to TCHL because of obstructive Eustachian tube dysfunction (OETD), which is not a previ…
  • A retrospective analysis of speech and hearing in patients receiving surgery for submucous cleft palate. [Journal Article]
    J Plast Reconstr Aesthet Surg. 2022 Nov 21; 77:123-130.Raby-Smith W, Hall P, … Miyagi K
  • Submucous cleft palate (SMCP) is an uncommon subtype of cleft palate that is associated with symptoms of velopharyngeal insufficiency (VPI), the most common being hypernasal speech. A high proportion of patients also suffer from conductive hearing loss, which is thought to be due to eustachian tube dysfunction. A number of surgical techniques have been proposed to correct the anatomical defect th…
  • Management of Eustachian Tube Dysfunction: A Review. [Review]
    Cureus. 2022 Nov; 14(11):e31432.Bal R, Deshmukh P
  • The Eustachian tube is a crucial pneumatic component of the head and neck region and is often neglected as an important site of insidious pathologies. In our literature review, we negotiate the management of eustachian tube dysfunction and explore the various therapeutic and surgical options available at our disposal. We begin by investigating the physiological nature of the eustachian tube and i…
  • StatPearls: Adenoiditis [BOOK]
    StatPearls. StatPearls Publishing: Treasure Island (FL)BowersIanIMcLaren Oakland HospitalShermetaroCarlCMclaren Oakland HospitalBOOK
  • The adenoids are a grouping of lymphoid tissue located on the posterior wall of the nasopharynx behind the soft palate. The adenoids, along with the faucial tonsils, lingual tonsils, and tubal tonsils of Gerlach make up what is known as Waldeyer’s ring. Together, these tissues function as an essential part of the human immune system in infancy. Antigens, introduced through the oral and nasal cavi…
  • [Emphysema after cochlear implantation - risk factors and therapeutic options]. [Review]
    Laryngorhinootologie. 2023 Jan; 102(1):16-26.Riepl R, Wigand MCC, … Goldberg-Bockhorn E
  • CONCLUSIONS: Most emphysema can be controlled by conservative methods such as pressure bandaging and behavioral instruction. Punctures should be avoided due to the risk of upcoming infections. The prophylactic use of antibiotics seems dispensable. Surgical revision should be considered especially in cases of pneumocephalus with suspected leakage in the dura. The coverage of the mastoidectomy by a bony cap can be precautious and beneficial in cases with risk factors.
  • Updates in Eustachian Tube Dysfunction. [Review]
    Otolaryngol Clin North Am. 2022 Dec; 55(6):1151-1164.Maddineni S, Ahmad I
  • Eustachian tube dysfunction (ETD) is a common middle ear disorder in children that can have a significant impact on the quality of life. This review aims to provide an updated understanding of ETD and its clinical management. We will discuss the pathophysiology and diagnosis of ETD, as well as the medical and surgical treatment of ETD. We will also review studies of both adults and children with …
  • Opsoclonus-myoclonus paraneoplastic syndrome in nasopharyngeal carcinoma. [Case Reports]
    BMJ Case Rep. 2022 Oct 26; 15(10)Stewart KE, Zeidler M, … Yeo JCL
  • Nasopharyngeal carcinoma can present with epistaxis, cervical lymphadenopathy, audiological symptoms secondary to eustachian tube dysfunction, pain, or neurological symptoms from tumours directly invading the skull base. It is unusual for patients to present with indirect systemic manifestations. Paraneoplastic neurological syndrome can precede clinically overt malignancy by up to 5 years; theref…
  • Epidemiology of Eustachian tube dysfunction and related otologic diagnoses among children with achondroplasia. [Journal Article]
    Int J Pediatr Otorhinolaryngol. 2022 Oct 08; 163:111339.Dorney I, Otteson T, Kaelber DC
  • CONCLUSIONS: Children with achondroplasia are at a significantly higher risk for diagnosed Eustachian tube dysfunction and related middle ear diagnoses. Atypical craniofacial anatomy among children with achondroplasia may play a role in the dysfunction of the Eustachian tube and thus the observed epidemiology of otologic conditions. Children with achondroplasia should be monitored closely for middle ear conditions and the constellation of symptoms related to a dysfunctional Eustachian tube.
  • Clinical Predictors of Symptom Improvement Following Eustachian Tube Balloon Dilation. [Journal Article]
    Ann Otol Rhinol Laryngol. 2022 Oct 12 [Online ahead of print]Yang HH, Alonso J, … Lee JT
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our findings suggest that ETBD was highly effective among patients with pre-operative ETDQ-7 above 2.1. Furthermore, higher pre-operative ETDQ-7 score, CRS, and chronic otitis media predicted more favorable symptomatic benefit from ETBD. These factors may be important to consider when counseling potential candidates for this procedure.
  • Symptom Localization May Differentiate Subtypes of Eustachian Tube Dysfunction. [Journal Article]
    Laryngoscope. 2022 Oct 12 [Online ahead of print]Parsel SM, Moxley EM, … McCoul ED
  • CONCLUSIONS: Symptom localization is associated with specific objective findings in the evaluation of aural discomfort. Patients with pain localizing to the ITF are more likely to have findings of eustachian tube salpingitis without obstruction whereas patients with symptoms deep in the EAC are more likely to have findings consistent with obstructive eustachian tube dysfunction.
  • Reconstruction of the Obliterated Eustachian Tube: A Pilot Case Series. [Journal Article]
    Laryngoscope. 2022 Sep 26 [Online ahead of print]Toivonen J, Poe D
  • CONCLUSIONS: Complete occlusion of the cartilaginous ET can be associated with intractable mucoid effusion; endoscopic examination should be considered in such cases. In this pilot study, ET reconstruction was found to be a safe and possibly effective procedure in patients with total obliteration of the ET from various etiologies. Larger studies with long term follow up are indicated.
