  • An automatic facial landmarking for children with rare diseases. [Journal Article]
    Am J Med Genet A. 2023 Jan 30 [Online ahead of print]Hennocq Q, Bongibault T, … Garcelon N
  • Two to three thousand syndromes modify facial features: their screening requires the eye of an expert in dysmorphology. A widely used tool in shape characterization is geometric morphometrics based on landmarks, which are precise and reproducible anatomical points. Landmark positioning is user dependent and time consuming. Many automatic landmarking tools are currently available but do not work f…
  • 3-D printed bionic ear and microtia-anotia -Medical and forensic implications. [Review]

  • Advances in science and technology result in continuous upgrading of the medical and clinical fields. These upgrades have been beneficial to many patients suffering from congenital and developmental diseases causing compromised functionality as well as the structural integrity of the affected organs. One such congenital anomaly is the microtia-anotia spectrum that results in deformities of the ex…
  • Nodular Fasciitis of the Nose and External Auditory Canal: Two Rare Case Reports. [Journal Article]
    Ear Nose Throat J. 2023 Jan 18 [Online ahead of print]Luo W, Ma T, … Zhang T
  • Nodular fasciitis(NF) is a proliferative disease of fibroblasts and myofibroblasts that generally affects subcutaneous tissue, muscle tissue, and fascia. NF usually occurs in young adults aged 20-40 and is more common in the upper extremities and relatively rare in the region of the head and neck. Here, we report on two patients with NF in the ear and nose. Under general anesthesia, the masses of…
  • Taste Alteration in External Auditory Canal Cholesteatoma: Indicator of Impending N VII Affection. [Journal Article]
    ORL J Otorhinolaryngol Relat Spec. 2023 Jan 12 [Online ahead of print]Matosevic L, Friedrich H, … Dubach P
  • CONCLUSIONS: CTN dysfunction often developed asymptomatically in chronic ears, except for idiopathic and posttraumatic EACCs under previous healthy middle ear conditions. Taste disturbance is not a cardinal symptom of EACC, but objective testing suggests that up to one out of 10 EACC patients with advanced disease may experience regional gustatory dysfunction prior to surgery. Especially in context of a new and acute presentation, regional taste dysfunction may alert the clinician of potential progressive EACC invasion and danger to the facial nerve.
  • Secondary Acquired Cholesteatoma in Langerhans Cell Histiocytosis Patient. [Case Reports]

  • Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) is a multi-faceted disease defined by the accumulation of dendritic cells in various organs with characteristics similar to the epidermal Langerhans cells and can affect any organ of the body. It is most commonly seen in young adults and children. Cholesteatoma is a congenital or acquired condition and is categorized into primary and secondary cholesteatomas. O…
  • [Treatment of chronic eczematous otitis externa]. [Journal Article]
    Vestn Otorinolaringol. 2022; 87(6):67-71.Kunelskaya VY, Ivoilov AY, … Luchsheva YV
  • Otitis externa is a common disease. The article discusses the anatomical and physiological features of the structure of the outer ear, the epidemiology of otitis externa. Acute inflammation is characterized by the presence of significant microflora, and most often it is preceded by the impact of various physical factors. With chronic inflammation, more changes from the skin are recorded, while th…
  • Otitis externa caused by Malassezia slooffiae complicated with mastoiditis: A case report. [Case Reports]
    J Infect Chemother. 2022 Nov 26 [Online ahead of print]Suga Y, Watanabe N, … Ebihara Y
  • Herein, we report a case of otitis externa caused by Malassezia slooffiae complicated with mastoiditis. A 70-year-old male complained of fever and severe otorrhea from left external auditory canal 2 months after undergoing a craniotomy to remove a hematoma. He had right-sided paralysis and undertook bed rest. Brain computed tomography revealed continuous fluid accumulation in the left mastoid air…
  • Congenital cholesteatoma clinical and surgical management. [Letter]
    Int J Pediatr Otorhinolaryngol. 2023 Jan; 164:111401.Wei B, Zhou P, … Zheng Y
  • CONCLUSIONS: To diagnose it early, congenital cholesteatoma should be considered as a possible aetiology for hearing loss patients with an intact tympanic membrane. In our study, most patients were diagnosed at III and IV stage. This highlights the need to promote awareness of the disease among primary physicians in the community healthcare system. Surgical management with removal of the cholesteatoma and reconstruction of the tympanum and ossicular chain is an effective treatment.
  • Time-varying caloric vestibular stimulation for the treatment of neurodegenerative disease. [Journal Article]
    Front Aging Neurosci. 2022; 14:1049637.Black RD, Chaparro E
  • Time-varying caloric vestibular stimulation (tvCVS) is a new form of non-invasive neuromodulation similar to, but different from, diagnostic caloric vestibular stimulation (CVS). Using a non-invasive, solid-state delivery device, tvCVS has been successfully used in a human clinical trial with Parkinson's disease (PD) subjects. Additionally, the effects of tvCVS on brain activation have been studi…
  • Merkel Cell Carcinoma of the External Ear: Population-Based Analysis and Survival Outcomes. [Journal Article]
    Cancers (Basel). 2022 Nov 17; 14(22)Alves AS, Scampa M, … Oranges CM
  • (1) Background: Due to its highly aggressive behavior, the ability to identify and manage Merkel Cell Carcinoma (MCC) with a full understanding of its characteristics is essential. Because the external ear is an exposed area, resection can have dramatic consequences on patient's self-image, which is why it is fundamental to detect MCC, typically found on UV-exposed regions such as the ears, at an…
  • Brachytherapy in the Treatment of Non-Melanoma Skin Peri-Auricular Cancers-A Retrospective Analysis of a Single Institution Experience. [Journal Article]
    Cancers (Basel). 2022 Nov 15; 14(22)Bilski M, Cisek P, … Niedźwiedzka-Rystwej P
  • CONCLUSIONS: Interstitial HDR (high-dose-rate) brachytherapy for non-melanoma skin cancers around the ear is highly effective, short, and has a relatively low burden on the patient. The toxicity of the treatment was low. In the case of contact brachytherapy, the toxicity profile is slightly higher but acceptable for patients. This method is preferred in patients in whom interstitial brachytherapy is impossible to perform due to anatomical and logistical reasons. The unquestionable advantage of contact brachytherapy is its ability to be performed on an outpatient basis without the need to stay in the hospital. No severe and late CTCAE ≥III and late RTOG ≥III toxicity was observed. In patients after surgery, in order to minimise the risk of radiation reaction, it is optimal to start treatment at least eight weeks after surgery. In the presence of extensive lesions, the use of interstitial brachytherapy seems to be more advantageous, especially when the expected volume of healthy skin in the dose range of 200% and 150% is above 15 cm3 and 50 cm3, respectively.
  • The Treatment Effect of Non-Surgical Ear Molding Correction in Children with Mild Cryptotia Deformity. [Journal Article]
    Laryngoscope. 2022 Nov 25 [Online ahead of print]Xu H, Ding S, … Liu H
  • CONCLUSIONS: We first propose and recommend that the treatment time window for non-surgical ear molding correction be maximally extended to 6 years old in children with mild cryptotia deformity. There is a high success rate of non-surgical ear molding correction in children with mild cryptotia deformity. The complication rate is low. There is a positive correlation between the mean treatment duration and the age at treatment, and the treatment duration increases with the growth of months.

  • Management of Juvenile Otosclerosis: A Systematic Review. [Review]
    Children (Basel). 2022 Nov 21; 9(11)Fancello V, Sacchetto L, … Palma S
  • CONCLUSIONS: The heterogeneity of the available studies does not allow us to draw straight conclusions on this topic, currently. More data about the natural history of the disease in children could help in approaching the treatment correctly, and possibly in drawing guidelines. Studies with a prolonged follow-up could be helpful for assisting clinicians and families in taking the most favorable decision about treatment.
