- CONCLUSIONS: In conclusion, the cervical muscle's thickness resulted increased in young patients Ultrasound is beginning to be recognized to have potential use in dentistry as a safe, noninvasive, comfortable and cost-effective adjunct to diagnosis by producing high-resolution images more easily than magnetic resonance (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) (27-kubo).
- Effective botulinum toxin injection guide for treatment of cervical dystonia. [Journal Article]
- CAClin Anat 2019 Jul 13
- CONCLUSIONS: We suggest injecting BoNT in the medial region 6/10-7/10 along the SCM prior to injecting in the lateral region 5/10-6/10 along the muscle to ensure safe and effective treatment. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
- Monitoring Breathing Muscle Performance During Singing Noninvasively Using Mechanomyography and Electromyography. [Journal Article]
- JVJ Voice 2019 Jul 09
- CONCLUSIONS: This study established MMG and EMG as the quantitative measurement tool to monitor breathing activities during singing. This is useful for applications related to singing therapy performance measure including potentially pathologically effected population. While the MMG and EMG could not distinguish FF and intensity significantly, it is useful to serve as a proxy of inhalation and exhalation levels throughout a particular singing session. Further studies are required to determine its efficacy in a therapeutic setting.
- Retromastoid-transmuscular identification and harvest of the occipital artery during retrosigmoid craniotomy. [Journal Article]
- JNJ Neurosurg 2019 Jul 12; :1-8
- CONCLUSIONS: This transmuscular technique for identification of the OA is a reliable method and may facilitate exposure and protection of the OA during a retrosigmoid approach. This technique may obviate the need for larger incisions when planning a bypass to nearby arteries in the posterior circulation via a retrosigmoid craniotomy. Additionally, the small skin incision can be enlarged when a different craniotomy and/or bypass is planned or when a greater length of the OA is needed to be harvested.

Neck abscesses after a cervical trauma rarely occur, especially in children. Cervical abscesses are more generally complications of otolaryngological infections. Progression to severe complication or death may be rapid. We describe a case of a sternocleidomastoid muscle and retropharyngeal abscess that developed after a minor cervical trauma from being struck in the neck. The patient was surgically treated and received antibiotics, but returned with a recurrence of the cervical infection. We discuss the superinfection of the hematoma, cervical abscess management, and its treatment in children.

Skeletal muscle uptake of F-FDG can result from a variety of physiologic and pathologic conditions. It is important for the physician to interpret these uptake patterns in the correct context to avoid a misdiagnosis. We present a case of a 36-year-old man with progressive, repeated episodes of regurgitation who was diagnosed with adenocarcinoma of the stomach. F-FDG PET/CT showed increased tracer uptake in the primary tumor and in the intercostal and sternocleidomastoid muscles. The pattern of tracer uptake along with the clinical history and examination of the patient helped differentiate a physiologic variant from a pathologic cause.

Intense blunt compression trauma to the neck can result in subcutaneous, intramuscular or laryngeal mucosa bleedings of different intensity. While these findings can easily be detected through a layer-wise dissection of the neck muscles and soft tissue during autopsy, it can be difficult to distinguish between peri-/post- and ante mortem hemorrhages solely based on macroscopic findings. Especially when an initial preliminary diagnosis is required, possible artifacts have to be excluded. The study at hand examines possible peri- and post mortem hemorrhages in the anterior neck after NorMors™ chin-collar application. In routine clinical and forensic autopsy cases, where such a chin-collar has been placed around the neck of the deceased in close proximity after death, focus was directed to the soft tissue and muscles of the neck. The results of our analysis could prove that the use of chin-collar shortly within the first 1 ½ hours after death applies just enough pressure to the neck to be able to cause superficial hemorrhages within the surface of the sternocleidomastoid muscles, which can mimic vital compression trauma injuries. Based on location, morphological outlines and intensity of the injuries, it is possible to correlate them with the position of the applied collar. Together with histological analyses, asphyxia by a second party involvement can be excluded. However, the application of chin-collars should be prohibited in any case, where an autopsy might be performed.

- Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy Using Preoperative Computed Tomographic Lymphography and Intraoperative Indocyanine Green Fluorescence Imaging in Patients With Localized Tongue Cancer. [Journal Article]
- JOJAMA Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg 2019 Jun 27
- CONCLUSIONS: The novel sentinel lymph node biopsy technique of preoperative CT lymphography mapping with intraoperative indocyanine green fluorescence has a high potential for identifying sentinel lymph nodes in patients with cN0 tongue cancer. Because the intraoperative indocyanine green method alone cannot identify sentinel lymph nodes in the neck region, this combined method has clinical potential as a sentinel lymph node biopsy technique that does not require radioisotopes.
