Tympanoplasty for Chronic Tympanic Membrane Perforation in Children: Systematic Review and Meta-analysis
TLDR
Tympanoplasties performed on larger perforations or in children with abnormal contralateral ear findings were more likely to fail and surgery may be best delayed untilcontralateral otitis media with effusion has settled.
Diffusion‐weighted magnetic resonance imaging for residual and recurrent cholesteatoma: a systematic review and meta‐analysis
Diagnosis and management of recurrent or residual cholesteatoma can be problematic. Diffusion‐weighted imaging magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) sequences have been used for follow‐up of such lesions.
ENT challenges at the small scale
In this paper we consider two relatively frequently performed operations in the field of ear, nose and throat (ENT) surgery and consider how they could be improved by using robotic applications. We

TLDR
Clinical applications of low-dose CBCT imaging in surgical planning, intraoperative guidance, and postoperative assessment are promising but require further investigation.
The effect of operating time on surgeons' muscular fatigue.
TLDR
Surgeons should be aware that their muscular fatigue levels will increase as an operation progresses; therefore, if possible, more complex parts of the operation should be performed as early as possible, or, in the case of a very long operation, a change in surgeon may be necessary.
An autonomous surgical robot for drilling a cochleostomy: preliminary porcine trial
TLDR
An autonomous drilling robot capable of performing a bony cochleostomy whilst minimising the damage to the underlying cochlear endosteum is produced.
The effect of operating time on surgeon’s hand tremor
TLDR
Surgeons should be aware that their tremor will increase as an operation progresses, and more complex parts should be performed as early in the day as possible, or, in the case of a very long operation, a change of surgeons may occasionally be necessary.
Fungal Malignant Otitis Externa with Facial Nerve Palsy: Tissue Biopsy Aids Diagnosis
TLDR
Tissue biopsy of the external auditory canal is recommended in all patients with suspected FMOE in addition to routine microbiology swabs, where formal tissue sampling revealed the diagnosis and the patient was successfully treated with voriconazole.
The effect of supporting a surgeon's wrist on their hand tremor
TLDR
Supporting the wrists significantly decreases the amplitude of the tremor and surgeons should consider using wrist supports when performing parts of operations which necessitate a high degree of accuracy.
