Application of the vibrant soundbridge® to unilateral osseous atresia cases
TLDR
The objective of this research is to evaluate the active middle ear implant, the Vibrant Soundbridge® (VSB), for hearing rehabilitation of patients with unilateral osseous aural atresia.
A Comparison of Ear Reattachment Methods: A Review of 25 Years since Pennington
TLDR
To replant an avulsed auricle is still a challenge for surgeons and microsurgically reanastomosed ear replantation appears to be the best method because a superior outcome can be achieved without jeopardizing a subsequent ear reconstruction with rib cartilage in case of failure.
Hypersalivation: update of the German S2k guideline (AWMF) in short form
TLDR
A phase III trial is completed for incobotulinum toxin A and, in the US, is indicated for the treatment of adult patients with chronic hypersalivation, and external radiation is judged as a safe and effective therapy when using modern 3D techniques to minimize tissue damage.
Patient selection for upper airway stimulation: is concentric collapse in sleep endoscopy predictable?
TLDR
Concentric collapse is a somewhat common condition encountered in sleep endoscopy evaluations of PAP alternatives, and cannot be sustainably predicted with anthropometric or sleep assessments.
Diagnosis and treatment of snoring in adults—S1 guideline of the German Society of Otorhinolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery
TLDR
Weight reduction; the avoidance of sleeping pills, alcohol and nicotine; and a regular sleep–wake cycle can be recommended, although convincing evidence is lacking; and there is not enough evidence to confirm the effectiveness of muscle stimulation or other forms of muscle training.
Upper Airway Stimulation for Obstructive Sleep Apnea: Results from the ADHERE Registry
TLDR
Across a multi-institutional registry, UAS therapy demonstrates significant improvement in subjective and objective OSA outcomes, good therapy adherence, and high patient satisfaction.
Outcome after one year of upper airway stimulation for obstructive sleep apnea in a multicenter German post‐market study
TLDR
Objective and patient‐reported outcome after 12 months of implantation of upper airway stimulation of the hypoglossal nerve for patients with moderate‐to‐severe obstructive sleep apnea are reported.
Post-approval upper airway stimulation predictors of treatment effectiveness in the ADHERE registry
TLDR
In a large multicentre international registry, UAS is an effective treatment option with high patient satisfaction and low adverse events, and increasing age and reduced BMI are predictors of treatment response.
Outcomes of Upper Airway Stimulation for Obstructive Sleep Apnea in a Multicenter German Postmarket Study
TLDR
Selective upper airway stimulation is a safe and effective therapy for patients with obstructive sleep apnea and represents a powerful option for its surgical treatment.
Functional outcome of tongue motions with selective hypoglossal nerve stimulation in patients with obstructive sleep apnea
TLDR
Findings suggest that the postoperative tongue motions in upper airway stimulation are associated with the therapy outcome, and the stimulation electrode placement on the hypoglossal nerve for selective muscle recruitment may play a role in the mechanism of action.
